Today on my day off my wife and I decided to venture down to the Fishergate Centre in Preston, Lancashire to do some Christmas Shopping, upon entering the upper floor we came across a newly opened store called Appy Feet (19th November 2010). Not knowing exactly what it was we entered the store and began talking to the person behind the desk. For those not in the know, Appy Feet is a spa where fish eat your dead skin. Read On!
Grace O’Leary from Cork, Ireland wrote the play “What Colour Was Her Blood” and teamed up with Scottish actress Julie Parton to deliver a 30 minute version of the play at Manchester’s No Part Of, an edgy arts festival. Following the success of the play she developed the story further to a full hour long story about a young woman who reunites with her mother who walked out on her 20 years ago when she was only 4.
Tonight in Preston, I was in the audience of the full hour long performance.
Tuesday 12th October 2010 signalled my first TweetUp. I attended the Preston TweetUp held by BlogPreston with sponsorship from Stage9. By Sponsorship I of course mean them advertising themselves and the TweetUp a lot and bought everyone their first drink down at The Continental in Preston.
Last night I attended the Annual Central Lancashire Business Event in the Pines Hotel in Chorley. Seeing none of the other usual Social Media people I know I thought to myself that this would be a prime networking opportunity. First though we had to sit through a few guest speakers.
First up, a Social Media Expert. Didn’t my confidence take a slight knock? I think so…
If you look closely at my Twitter, Facebook or this blog even you may have noticed something new and different. For instance, the main point of call even, my logo has changed. That would be because Walker Studios is no longer a student portfolio of work, but is now fully operating as “Walker Studios – Multimedia Design & Social Media Solutions” (holds for applause).
So, as I have probably mentioned before, I like social media and networking. A Lot. So, when one of my favourite Tweeters invited me to meet over a brew, I jumped at the chance. I met the amazing Amanda Jackson, of Tigerfish PR to have a discussion about Twitter and the Social Networking world in general.
