This Blogging Thing Is Tougher Than Your Moms Casserol

Posted by on Jul 17, 2015 in My life | 0 comments

Nothing in life ever comes easily. I get that. Well, except for a teenage boy, sure. That is besides the point anyway. Stop giggling.

Seriously though – things that are difficult are normally worth the effort. Like that mooi stikkie you have been trying to hook up with for the last two years but she won’t give you the time of day. We see you being a try-hard. Stop it.

Anyway, I digress. It’s not my fault that I have an attention span inversely proportional to Kim K’s ass.

Seriously stop making this women famous. Jesus.

The important point that I am trying to make, is that this blogging daily thing is difficult, hence me calling it a challenge. Now, I don’t just expect blog posts to fall out of the sky, but there is enough perplexingly random shit running through my head on a daily basis, that even if I fill a post with the drivel that is the following bout of words, then I should be able to finish this challenge. This will definitely get easier as I get further into the challenge, kind of like a tub of ice cream as your shame gets weighed further and further down as more and more ice cream enters your stomach, while you sit on the couch in your fat pants with your ass starting to form a crater in the couch because you haven’t even shifted positions, never mind moved, in the last 6 hours.

Just to clarify, the title isn’t meant to make any sense – much like most of my content. Just roll with it.

Tinder – What The &%$#

Posted by on Jul 16, 2015 in My life | 0 comments

Tinder. Where the bloody hell do we begin with this mess of an app?

I haven’t the foggiest idea, but I have had a shit ton of fun playing on the app this week. In the space of the last week, I have seen a few sides to the app that I didn’t, but should have expected.

There are 3 types of girls on Tinder:

  • The Crazy
  • The Hoe
  • The Prude

Now, we aren’t talking about looks or anything, but simply the first impression that a girl can give off – the initial impression of her personality. Some of them are cringe worthy, some are funny, but the majority of them just leave me dik confused. WHAT THE HELL GIRL!?

The Hoe

This is plain and simple. The first thought that she gives off is the fact that she wants the D. Any D. Excuse the blunt objectification, but damn girl calm down. Put them things away (but silently thumbs up). Most of these profiles are fakes/jokes that they are doing for a bit of fun, but remember, anything that goes on the internet, more than likely stays on the internet. I feel like there isn’t anything else to add to this, but just cover yo’self up. We know your milkshake brings all the internet boys to the yard, but you are practically shooting your first porno with some of those pics.

The Crazy

The next topic veers right off track in comparison – just like the mal people who put these pics up. Sure some of these are a joke, but WTF people!? I get there are some, ummmm, “alternative” people out there, but there is only so much crazy that a man can handle, even if he is more cooked than your Christmas duck that you left in the oven because you got too drunk after another domestic argument about how Johnie leaves his shit everywhere.

Blogging Challenge – 30 Days Of Sprouting Shit

Posted by on Jul 14, 2015 in My life | 0 comments

Jissus! Kykie how are you people doing?

I had completely forgotten about you. Yep, I will admit it with a pang in my mellow dramatic, over-the-top theatrical state, that I genuinely neglected my first baby.

I am not going to make promises like the last time, but this time, I am going to set myself a challenge. A challenge to blog every day for the next 30 days. This isn’t something done for you, but something done for me, and me alone. My Batman without Robin type of moment.

My blog month challenge, if you will, will simply comprise of 30, quite often pointless, but daily posts. Yes these posts will include weekends – shock horror!

YEEEEE HAAAAH! Let’s do this!

That is me channeling my inner Riaan so that I can bring you the news of my life for 30, probably boring as hell days. Jissus.

2013 Birthday Wishlist

Posted by on Apr 8, 2013 in Cape Town, My life | 0 comments

So my birthday has crept up on me this year. It was only last week that I realized that it was coming up. The last two weeks have been manic for me and after a few people started to nag me about some gift ideas I decided I needed to sit down and draw up a list.

This process made me realize that I am EXCEPTIONALLY privileged as there is nothing major that I need or want and this actually makes me feel quite guilty.

Anyway, here is the list:

  • Mauritius Holiday – a little far fetched but a bunch of us are thinking about doing this together so if someone wants to pay for me that would rock :P
  • Big poofy warm slippers
  • A big grey stylish winter coat – something like this but preferably in grey.
  • Steve Jobs Biography by Walter Issacson.

Apart from that, I think I am quite fortunate :)

New Job: Head of Inbound Marketing at iMod Digital

New Job: Head of Inbound Marketing at iMod Digital

imod-digital-logo

As you might have seen on both LinkedIn as well as Facebook, that I have recently changed jobs. I am no longer working for Shake Interactive, but have now made the jump to iMod Digital.

At iMod Digital I will be taking the role of Head of Inbound Marketing where I will be diving deep into client strategy from both an SEO perspective but also from a full scale digital marketing perspective. These days this combination of earned media such as SEO and digital marketing is often combined to be called inbound marketing due to the organic nature of the online rewards for your efforts, both on, and off the web.

I joined at the start of February but things have been a little hectic and that is why I am only writing this post now. I jumped right in and Chris allowed me to get my hands into the cookie jar right from day 1. I have really been craving this far more hands on approach with client work for quite some time now and it is quite invigorating being able to get things chance. I have had to be quite patient in waiting for the timing to be right for both iD as well as myself, but finally the time has come.

So far so good and the first two weeks have been busy but fun and rewarding. 5pm is sneaking up on me again rather than dragging out and it is refreshing. There is a really talented team in place already and they all seem to gel really well.
