This website is suffering from world development. No, honestly. A great example came the other night when a few of us trotted up to London to see the comedian Michael McIntyre. I was blown away by how good he was, wanting to tell everyone about it.
Back in the day, the only choice I had was to whack it all up on here. But 2009 has brought me a choice. I could either go home, write a long eulogy on here late into the night, embellish the whole story more than it perhaps deserved, and go to bed exhausted. Or, I could quickly use my mobile phone to let close friends know through Facebook (and everyone else through Twitter), before quickly uploading a picture or two to Flickr. The first choice would have taken a day, and the moment might have passed. The second option was immediate, quick and easy. It’s become so simple to do, it’s a no-brainer.
So these other sites – Twitter and Facebook for little anecdotes and links, Flickr for pictures and Youtube or Vimeo for videos – are taking the spotlight away from wibbler.com, to such an extent that only the really major events are given any time on here. Nowadays I also post a lot on other sites, and you might want to know about these too. It’s all still me, I’m just spreading myself around a bit.
And that, ladies and gentlefolk, is why I’ve updated the site to focus a little more on the pictures, titbits and videos I post. It all comes neatly together into this big Wibbler hub of wonderfulness. Hope you like it…
