OK, so you arrived here via my twitter page, and want to know more?
Short version – I’m a musician, music teacher, blogger about musical things and the miscellany of life, web enthusiast and consultant/thinker about Social media and what all this web 2.0 stuff enables us to do that we couldn’t do before, particularly as it relates to creatives. I co-run a not-for-profit social media event help organisation called Amplified.
Your best places to start finding out what I do are my blog (set aside a while, there’s a lot of it!), and the music pages. It’s worth having a listen, honest, cos all this other nonsense is related to the music – that’s the centre of the wheel, the hub around which all the other stuffs rotates.
After that, you might want to talk more via the various social networks of which I’m a part – if you have a look at the links at the top of this page (underneath the CD buying links) you’ll see links for facebook, last.fm, youtube and some other places. Youtube’s definitely worth a look, as there are some fun music vids there, as well as video blog stuff.
You’re also welcome to check out the gigs page here on the site so you can come and see what I do when I’m not faffing about online, though to be honest, a lot of the gigs Lobelia and I do are house concerts, so don’t always get listed there…
Oh, and if I followed you first, the chances I found you were recommended to me, or retweeted by someone. It may also have been that I found you via something you tweeted about music… Whichever, it’s just that your feed looked interesting, so I’m checking it out – feel free to follow back or not! If you do follow me, and I tweet too much, I shan’t be in the slightest bit offended if you unfollow. My own sister did
If you followed me in the hope that I’d follow back and I haven’t, it’ll be because of two things – firstly, I don’t get notifications of new followers – there were too many, and it was taking up loads of time. I do go and have a look about once a week to delete all the spam and wrongness, so then I follow people I know.
The number of people I’m already following (1000-and-change as I write this) is already functionally too high, so I’m only adding people that REALLY interest me. If I’m not following you, it doesn’t, of course, mean that you can’t reply to things, or ‘@’ me for specific things – that’s all cool, and if we get a conversation happening, it may well be that I end up following you. But please don’t be offended if I don’t. It’s honestly nothing personal, I assure you x
