Favourite Firsts

These are some of my “favourite first” images from when I first started this blog in August. I now have exactly 10,532 pictures in my “Blog” folder. I know I don’t say much, but I try to use these pictures to tell you a story in most of my posts. Thank you for reading, looking, following, liking and supporting me..it’s really nice to be seen and heard and felt. I guess without you guys I’d be talking to myself. Sooo, xoxo, Happy Holidays, I hope you all will have a Safe and Healthy 2014!

Schmoozing is Confusing

20131215-191957.jpg

I can talk in front of a room of 50 and more people. I can have passionate deep conversations one on one or in familiar group settings. I’m usually pretty good talking to the opposite sex. But schmoozing…I find difficult and confusing. How long can you talk crap to someone you don’t really want to be talking to? It’s hard…it makes me a bit anxious sometimes. This article “Shmooza Palooza: Shmoozing Tips for the Holiday Office Party” HERE ON > glo.msn.com may help you too.

Sooo Last Year…Since Last Year

Today I decided to take my own advice and Google myself and SoooLastYear. I shared a post on my Miss Web Melbourne FaceBook page about how your online profile can greatly affect the perceptions of your potential new employers…and you can safely bet that all potential employers will Google you these days before they give you a job.
Well, I’m not looking for a job, I have my own little SocialMedia business which I’m totally proud of…but it has been ages since I Googled anything about me or SoooLastYear. I used to do it all the time…when I worked for someone else…lol…I loved seeing all my job titles at all these different companies line up on Google. “Yeah..that’s right people..that’s me….I’m famous”…I’d chuckle at my desk at 5:20pm just waiting waiting waiting waiting for 5:29pm.
Today though, I found heaps of crazy stuff…photos, words, sites, apps, everything! Stuff I thought was private wasn’t, apps that I had revoked access to ages ago were still active…It was a huge WTF moment. But there were also good moments. For example, the OAO (online audience optimization) on my sites is working awesomely…Do a search on SoooLastYear on Google, all one word….and no, you don’t want So Last Year. Lastly, finding my first blog ever on Blogger was also very cool! (I had kind of forgotten about). I’ll never delete it, I’m glad it’s there. I started blogging in September Last Year, then I stopped for a Long while. I started again in August this year, right here on WordPress. Here’s the link to the ORIGINAL SLY >> SoooLastYear.blogSPOT.com.au

The Sartorialist

Founder/blogger/photographer Scott Schuman began The Sartorialist with the idea of creating a two-way dialogue about the world of fashion and its relationship to daily life. In addition to the blog, Schuman’s work has been featured in GQ, Vogue Italia, Vogue Paris, and Interview; for GQ, Schuman shot and edited his own page for over three years. In 2009 Penguin published an anthology of his images that has sold well over 100,000 copies to date and been translated into languages from English to Korean. Its limited-run Bespoke Edition sold out in less than three months. His work resides in the permanent collections of the Victoria & Albert Museum and the Tokyo Metropolitan Museum of Photography.
Another one of my most favourite Websites and bloggers is Scott Schuman’s The Sartorialist. He is the original Street Style Blogger. If you are interested in fashion his website is a MUST SEE. Here are a few recent shots of his. Go explore some more! But come back!
