I’ve just been Blog-tagged by Nick Rice of Strategic Design. Unlike in the game where Jeff Pulver asked bloggers to write about 5 things people didn’t know about them, this meme has moved me to answer 5 different questions. Without further ado, here are my answers:
- WHAT HAVE YOU LEARNED SO FAR FROM VISITORS TO YOUR BLOG
I don’t know where to start… I’m a huge fan of comments (If you haven’t realized already) and I consider them all rather than just discarding them. Perhaps the most useful thing I have learned from my visitors is that I cant be too judgmental. I’ve also learned that you should respect their opinions and learn to look through their eyes (something which I am still working on).
- IF SOMEONE OFFERED TO PAY FOR A COURSE (OR MORE) FOR YOU, WHAT WOULD IT BE?
I’d get a BA of Urban Development and Planning. I’ve had a keen interest in the area and I believe that these people will become hugely important in our society as the human population puts increasing strain on the planet’s limited resources. Not only that, I also believe that a well planned city can foster a more supportive community spirit.
- ARE YOU SATISFIED WITH WHAT YOU HAVE ACHIEVED IN 2006?
Almost… but not quite enough as 2005. Whilst I mostly focussed on career last year, I neglected other areas of my life. I’m currently working on a balance at the moment and I hope to achieve more exuberant goals this year such as developing my EnvironBlog website into something substantial, visiting New Zealand (which I am currently saving up for) and buying an established site which I can manage freely.
- HAS BLOGGING CHANGED YOUR LIFE IN ANY WAY?
If anything, blogging has opened my eyes to the opportunities available to me. The most significant of which, were namely writing for Small Business Branding and traveling to the USA to attend Mplanet 2006. Since last year I have been offered several new opportunities which I am not sure whether I can discuss with you all right now, but I will definitely reveal them to you in the near future.
- IF YOU COULD MEET THE ONE PERSON IN THE WORLD THAT YOU TRULY ADMIRE, WHO WOULD THAT BE?
I’ve always been a fan of James Bond. I’d meet him at the drop of a hat if he were real. OK, I know that’s cheating but I’m not decided upon someone who I’d like to meet at the moment. If however I could change the question to “Who I was looking forward to meeting most?”, it would probably be Yaro Starak who will be coming back to Australia, in a months time.
That was interesting for me to think about but now I think it’s time to pass the meme onto others. I’m going to tag Des Walsh, Ed Roach, Christine Buske, Jaya Schillinger and Cristian Mezei. Enjoy it guys!
