5 things

January 27th, 2010 by Dave Leave a reply »

I had lunch with two of my former tutors the other week.

Well, I say former, but really they still are my tutors. Example late-night panic text: “Debbie! How many words should a 30 second cue be?!”

Anyway – I met Debbie and Andrew in the bar at Bush House. I could have sat there for hours chatting about things media with them.

We chatted about blogging. This blog, in fact, which the eagle-eyed among you will know is pretty much dead. A busy job, you see, is a surefire way of sapping time away from a personal project like this.

Sad, really, because it was this blog that opened up the opportunities which got me the job I’m enjoying right now.

Andrew said it’s important that at the very least I write about what I’m up to – if only for my own benefit years from now.

So I’ve come up with this plan. Rather than spend hours pushing out well-crafted (ha!) posts – I think I’ll keep it simple. “5 things I’ve learned about…” is the theme. Just five things. And I’m starting later today.

    “And I’m starting later today.”

    Fatal mistake, Dave… ;-)

    Greetings from Lincoln!

  2. Welcome back. I for one have missed your blog. My own has suffered over the past year, like yours – nothing like pressure of work, eh? I’m trying to kickstart mine again and I’ll look forward to your regular 5 things.

  3. Everything composed was actually very reasonable.
    But, what about this? suppose you were to create a awesome title?
    I am not saying your information is not solid, however suppose you added a title that grabbed a person’s
    attention? I mean 5 things | Dave Lee / jBlog is a little boring.
    You could peek at Yahoo’s front page and note how they write article
    titles to grab viewers interested. You might try adding a video or a related picture or two to
    get people excited about what you’ve got to say.

    Just my opinion, it would make your blog a little livelier.

    nice, keep it up! I’ll go ahead and bookmark your
    website to come back later on. All the best

  5. Everything said was actually very logical. However, what about this?

    suppose you added a little content? I mean, I don’t want to tell
    you how to run your website, but suppose you added a post title that grabbed a person’s attention? I mean 5 things | Dave Lee / jBlog is kinda vanilla.
    You could look at Yahoo’s home page and see how they create article headlines to grab viewers
    to click. You might add a related video or a pic or two to grab people excited about everything’ve written. Just my opinion, it would make your
    posts a little bit more interesting.
