This is the really fun bit. Posting stuff after the blog is past its sell by date and nobody will read it!

Why would anyone want to see my profile? I think I'm must more handsome front on ...

>"I only wrote it because having been a cynic for sometime, we (H&K) did a survey of tech influencers and apparently 22% placed credibility in blogs."<

That infers that 78% did not place credibility in blogs. And yet you still wrote one.

PS - some free advice from someone who is now the other side of 40: it really isn't a big deal ;-)

2007-07-05T18:19:00.000+01:00

I'm mightily surprised that a blog written mainly for my amusement could have caused this much discussion. I suppose the mistake was including the URL on Facebook - which is where TWL must have seen it.

I only wrote it because having been a cynic for sometime, we (H&K) did a survey of tech influencers and apparently 22% placed credibility in blogs. Whilst substantially below China, the US and Canada, it did surprise me that so many supposedly smart people would find blogs of much use. Still, we live and learn, eh?

So, given that, I thought it might be time to start writing and find out a bit more about the process of blogging.

It turns out that it's actually quite entertaining (sad, I know).

More important that all of that, is just how quickly social media sites like Facebook can spread the word. I wonder whether the line between social and business use of social media is blurring at such a rate of knots that it'll soon be one and the same thing.

its bitchy to point out typos? since when?

(posting anon because I really don't have the energy to sign up, sorry TWL)

>And finally ... there surely must be some rule against being bitchy and being 'Anonymous'. Is it pathetically cowardly<

I saw your post on the other blog. 'matt' is no more of an identity than 'anonymous' when your blogger profile is not available for viewing. Hypocrisy is nearly as bad as cowardice.

"And finally ... there surely must be some rule against being bitchy and being 'Anonymous'. Is it pathetically cowardly."

I must have missed the 'bitchy' comments. All I can see are people expressing opinions. Maybe you could ban those as well.

2007-07-05T10:42:00.000+01:00

I think it makes a nice change for someone to blog about life, rather than use the blogosphere as a barely veiled wanky attempt to sell their employer or their expertise in 'social media'.

It is picky to point out typos - in fact it's bitchy. If you're going to do that, you should post on his blog instead of using TWL as some kind of go-between. That's what I did. And I pointed out that there's no such thing as a 'set of hair' - it's a set of teeth, or a head of hair. Understandable mistake, as Mark has false teeth as well as greys and a hairy back.

And finally ... there surely must be some rule against being bitchy and being 'Anonymous'. Is it pathetically cowardly.

Dominic I see your point about blog as personal stream of conciousness - BUT if I were the powers that be at H&K I'd expect an MD to be able to both spell and to write in a style less reminiscent of a teenage girl.

Dominic

I think you'll find that I didn't go on about grammar or spelling. I mentioned using the word "Eeek" but that was style rather than spelling.

Mark's blog posts to date are fair game for some gentle ribbing nes pas? I mean, FFS, writing about how "I should be losing my hair but I'm not" in a cod self deprecatory manner...if that's not ripe for some piss taking I don't know what is.

I quite agree pulling out typos in a blog post is pedantic (unless of course it's a blog about such things). Pulling tyres out of a lamp post (sic) though is an altogether different matter.

2007-07-03T15:05:00.000+01:00

Jeepers - I didn't know Mark had started a blog and he's my boss. Good for you, Mark.

Notes to the two anonymous commenters:

(1) Yes, it's considered extremely pedantic to point out typos in blogs, especially personal ones where much of the point is to publish your thoughts without paying too much attention to form.

(2) The law of Sod says that any post that criticises another's grammar/spelling contains at least one error itself... it's spelled 'm e n o p a u s a l'!

2007-07-03T11:22:00.000+01:00

Jesus.

That's possibly the most boring thing I've read since the back of my Tesco receipt, which served as emergency reading material in the bogs 10 mins ago.

Write some pained poetry about the slow death of cells, tell us about how many chicks (or blokes) you're gonna score with before you hit double top, show us pictures of your rippling muscles with scoffing remarks about middle age spread....don't for Christ's sake keeping writing about hair loss and using words like "Eeek".

It's like Scooby Doo for menapausal men.

2007-07-03T10:40:00.000+01:00

Not pedantic at all! In fact, you're clearly in pursuit of our own heart.

But you're right. Given Jackson's age, it could be health-related. But then surely it should be: "What vein is that?"

I imagine it's been a while.

2007-07-03T10:36:00.000+01:00

Am I being a real pedant if I get ticked off when PR people can't spell?

"How vein is that?"

Unless he's referring to some sort of vascular problem?

It's almost forgivable in an Account Executive - but he should know better.
