I love social networking. A week ago, @ElissaMilne and I started up the #donotmissBliss tag, and the mania just keeps on spreading. We haven't trended yet but all things considered, I think our humble hashtag is doing pretty darn well for itself.
So I was especially thrilled on Tuesday to discover that Opera Australia (in the form of @OAPR) had come on board with the campaign — not just by using the tag, but by actually running a competition encouraging others to do likewise. Have a look at the @OAPR profile and you'll see the details — there's a double pass to Bliss up for grabs every day for a week.
I'm so glad that OA is finally making a proper splash on Twitter, and of course very happy to have contributed to that splash. Even if sometimes I think I should also be tagging my tweets with #stillnotonthepayroll. (I kid. Labour of love, goodness of my heart, etc etc.)
And meanwhile, Bliss and #donotmissBliss seem to be bringing out the artist in everyone. First there was Alex's poem, and now another friend of mine — known to you as the creator of John Wegner is awesome and of the Bliss Pie — has also been moved to burst into verse. Here's her #donotmissBliss limerick:
I'm not OA's new ticket flogger
But this serves as a memory jogger:
I'll remind you of this --
(And so agrees prima-* the blogger.)
[*lamusica. But then it wouldn't scan.]
To which I can add nothing but my agreement. Do not miss Bliss.
