Introduction for wbolton
Hello everyone! I am a refugee from Bubbles where I have been posting for around 12 months. Enough said really, it isn't the site it was. I enjoy internet writing, the freedom to make a point or two about any topic that catches your eye or sticks in your brain. I am easily old enough to remember a time when there wasn't anything comparable. Letters to newspapers, articles written, they may appear - or they may not. The internet has opened up a world that previous generations never even imagined. The chance to meet, greet and exchange views with people from around the world on a daily basis. Just an amazing happening. I have worked in advertising as a copywriter for a while. This reminds me of doing a 'copy test' for an agency but is much less stressful - I don't really care what happens next. Although of course I do hope I pass. The test is a good idea. Many sites have gone down because they are full of content that makes no sense. Who is going to pay for an ad on a page that can't be read? One 'test' I did years ago asked me to write about a favourite object. I wrote about a typewriter, an old manual one. It really was my friend, helped me earn a daily crust. Today only the keyboard is the same. Everything else is different - and better. Thank you internet.
