Why not start a blog?
Blogs have long been associated with geek-dom but, as with many new technologies, their use if potentially far more mainstream than originally thought. Blogs can be used as a journal, as a means of communication between families, as a small community newsletter, as a destination to post details of big nights out, a place to rant and so on and so on.
They are also very easy to create. Your de facto web site, which with Mippin can be accessed from any mobile device as well anywhere, can be set up quickly and easily without any need to program or even understand what is being done.
Here are a number of links to sites that allow you to do this:
http://wordpress.org/ (though this is for the more tech savvy)
All these sites have great tutorials too.
For the ambitious, you should take a look at
If you wish it to be so, it can be a money spinner or a fame generator. For the more modest, it can be simply a means to communicate to family and friends.
In building Mippin, we have noticed a large number of independent blogs or sites which are every bit as reliable or insightful as established brands. For example, take a look at:
Filmsy - Movie Reviews
Shoewawa - the world of shoes, remember you can blog on anything
King Cricket - an alternative and sometime less serious take on cricket
The Superficial - unashamed gossip
There is nothing that you cannot blog about - someone out there is going to be interested. Get going!
