today i learned – tues 1st aug 2017

right, i’m going to get straight into it … the apocalypse is coming and it’s all facebook’s fault 😭 i know that we’ve had lots of possible apocalypses on this blog … but this one is legit 🤙🏻

(also, on a brighter facebook note, the blog now has a facebook page! you should go ->here<- and follow it so you’re always up-to-date! 😬)

#tdil that facebook shut down two robots earlier today because they taught themselves a new language that only they understood 🤖☠️ Continue reading “today i learned – tues 1st aug 2017”

today i learned – fri 21st july 2017

today, we’re going to experience something that i’ve decided to name ‘blogception’ 🤓 … basically, we’re going to discuss blogs on a blog 😂

so yeah, this was actually inspired because i asked if i could write a guest post for someone … maybe i did, maybe i didn’t … at this point, you know better than me. anyway, shall we get on with it? 🙃

#tdil about the history of blogging! like, have you ever just stopped and thought – ‘where on earth did this wonderful idea even come from? 🤔’ (no? me neither until today). Continue reading “today i learned – fri 21st july 2017”

today i learned – sat 8th apr 2017

so, day three of holiday learning is here! so far, it’s been an undoubtable success as it’s 22 degrees, sunburn still hasn’t reared its ugly head 😏 #achievementunlocked and i’ve managed to continue daily blogging 😬.

anyhew, holiday update complete – because you all care so much – i’m now going to go totally off the topic of the sun and on to something more day-to-day (for me at least) – google searches 🤓.

#tdil that google handles an estimated 1 billion search queries each and every day, releasing almost 200 tons of co2 per day. Continue reading “today i learned – sat 8th apr 2017”

today i learned – thurs 30th mar 2017

alrighty then (i really hope that you read that in your head just like ace ventura) today’s thing that i learned was about a topic that is very close to my heart – internet memes 😂

#tdil all about a theoretical law that is said to have caused the first meme 👍🏻 … i’m sure you’ll agree that this is vital information 😏. anyway, lets get into it.  Continue reading “today i learned – thurs 30th mar 2017”

today i learned – sat 18th mar 2017

alrighty then! today, we’re talking social media – a thing that the majority of us enjoy in some way shape or form. did you know what some of us enjoy it a bit too much and that there is a legit disorder to do with facebook addiction?! … #tdil that facebook addiction disorder (or f.a.d) is an actual thing 😳

well, according to an american psychologist it is … in fact, a casino site once mentioned that facebook is like a casino in that “it provides an atmosphere from which it is hard to walk away”.  Continue reading “today i learned – sat 18th mar 2017”

today i learned – thurs 9th mar 2017

today, much like yesterday, i was in our fair capital, learning all about how to trick people into buying stuff through pretty pictures and stuff … aka marketing.

after many many panels and talks, i’ve learned something that i thought was quite interesting and useable as a throw away fact at the dinner table 👍🏻

#tdil that 50% of all movies are made using a story structure known as “the hero’s journey” 😏.  Continue reading “today i learned – thurs 9th mar 2017”

today i learned – tues 7th mar 2017

things are going to be a tad different today…well, different in terms of today’s thing that i went and learned not being an actual thing…(this makes sense in my head).

anyway, #tdil a new appreciation for those crazy people that create daily vlog content and the work that they must put into each video! this appreciation comes around due partly to this blog and partly because of time i’ve spent creating and editing video.  Continue reading “today i learned – tues 7th mar 2017”

today i learned – mon 13th feb 2017

with macklemore & ryan lewis pleasing my earholes, we’re starting with a relatively geeky first #todayilearned thanks to my least favourite people – google.

the thing i learned today is that the star rating that google gives to each business isn’t actually an average of all the star ratings that the business has … nope, that’d be far too simple for google. Continue reading “today i learned – mon 13th feb 2017”
