In Other News – 23 May 2016

2 min read


I’m not fond of being on camera. I’m sort of old-fashioned in my approach to creating content, that I prefer to let the feature speak for itself rather than let my enormous perm grab any attention. But hey, we live in a different era of entertainment now! One where a person needs to become a brand, in order to get clicks and views.

And maybe that’s not too bad. I think when an audience picks up on your sincerity, you can actually craft something that benefits both parties, or as soon as I get over my phobia of having my fat face captured on screen. It can also be used I think, to create wonderful in-jokes. Something that I’ll probably start inserting into my videos, based on the numerous chats I have with you lot.
