7 questions tag – coast facts

19 May

7 questions coast tag

  1. What’s your favourite beach? I love Aymer Cove, it’s a tiny place only accessible on foot near Bigbury. My now fiance took me there when we were friends.
  2. Sea or sand? Sea! I love to swim.
  3. Tell a memory of being by the sea. I remember walking on the Gower Peninsula in Wales with my Dad, we carried all our things for a week in a backpack. We’d been walking for hours and felt horribly lost (in the name of adventure we decided against using a map), but suddenly we came out of a wood onto the most beautiful long sandy beach. I’ll never forget that feeling of happiness.
  4. What’s your favourite seaside food? Fish and chips with tartare sauce.
  5. Favourite ice cream flavour? Honeycomb or mango sorbet.
  6. Have you lived by the sea? Yes, lots, I grew up in Torquay and went to university in Aberystwyth.
  7. Favourite place on the coast? South Devon, the rolling hills and coves make it perfect for walking, camping and swimming.

Blog post inspired by National Trust South West Coastal Festival & the 7 questions tag post.

I tag 7 people to take part too: The Lovely Drawer, Adrian Colston, The Baking Explorer, A Yorkshire Woman, Lickerish Split, The Pink Whisk and Suzy Pelta. Looking forward to your seeing your favourite coast things!

Could Social Media be the End of Gender?

1 May

I’m watching this TED talk at the moment…

Perhaps this explains why facebook marketing isn’t so successful – it’s not about how old you are, what gender you are, what you do, or whether you’re in a relationship, it’s about interests.

I like the idea that because women are using social media much more than men, women will begin to drive tastes, companies will hire more women and women will drive tastes. Does this mean death to the chick flick / lit genres?
