“He is here and I have a photograph with him” my 12 year old daughter proudly announced on board Harmony of the Seas.
“Never heard of him!”
“He was on Celebrity Masterchef” she informed me.
“Can’t remember him. What does he do?” I questioned.
“He is on Youtube & has millions of followers. My friends are going to be jealous I got a photo with him.”
“How do you know him & what is he doing on the ship?” I asked again still puzzled by who this person was.
“I follow him and I love his catchphrase of….”hello””
“His catchphrase is “hello”? That must have took a lot of thought?”
Now I know entertainment is not as good as it used to be but going back through classic catchphrases e.g. “Nice to see you to see you nice”, “I love it when a plan comes together”, “May the force be with you” & “What is a hotspot not?”…”Hello” is pretty weak.
“No dad not “hello” but “helllllloooooo””
“Oh” I say still rather confused. “Millions of followers you say? I can do that! I am going to start my own blog”
& with that modernlifeisgood.com was born.
Now my family are all rather confused and did not think I was serious when I announced my intentions but yesterday I put my plans in motion and purchased my first ever domain and website. I am rather proud of my little achievement but others may well call it a midlife crisis.
Now we went through a few other titles including modernlifeisshit.com but I settled with this my little place on the web modernlifeisgood.com. So after never having a Facebook or Twitter account & no idea what a blogger actually does or what I will blog about I am now a blogger.
Now Marcus if your reading this can you lend me some help as I understand your rather good at this & my daughter really likes you?
