I met with a lovely woman called Zoe, the other day. Zoe runs a networking event called Tech Talkfest. She reminded me that it was over a year ago that I did a keynote presentation at her fashion & technology conference at Google Campus – I couldn’t believe it. Where does the time actually go? Can someone tell me! I remember it like it was yesterday. I was so petrified. It was the biggest talk I had every done but more scarily it was in-front of my peers. I don’t know about you but I have a fear that one day someone is going to tell me that I am a fraud and I don’t actually know what I am doing or talking about. Let’s be clear, I know I do but we all have a little self-doubt right! I really wanted to do this talk to prove to myself that I got this shit handled.
The talk was about my predicted trends in the fashion & technology space and they went over really well with the audience which was really lovely to here.
Can’t believe I’ve had that leather skirt for a year – totally bananas.

Can I safely say I’m in the blogging swing of things now?
It’s weird because I spend my day speaking to bloggers and yet I was not consistent on my own blog. I was starting to feel like a hypocrite and well no-one likes those. The beauty of blogging for me is I’ve been working with bloggers since I was a wee 19 year old and still do 6 years later (yes I’m 25 =]) and as a web developer/coder if there is any tech shiz I need to get done, I can do it myself, no sweat (occasional sweat). I’m sure that’s not the case for everyone as I’ve had many a frustrated call/email/tweet etc. that something’s being getting on your nerves for a while and you just can’t figure out how to fix it.
Well on this blog I’m all about giving tips/advice/tutorials to empower you to make changes on your own blog because at the end of the day, it’s your baby just like TheFashionTechnologist is mine.
So I prompt you to let me know if you have any tech question you want answered? Let me know and I’ll do my best to make a tutorial for you here on TheFashionTechnologist. Big or small, go wild!
