I am pleased to announce that Hairy Mouth has been nominated for an award. I not entirely sure what that award is, but it’s pretty awesome that someone has put my name forward. More details can be found HERE, and I’ve been asked to answer the following questions. So here we go…1. What State (or city) do live in? London, United Kingdom. 2. How long have you been blogging? About 4 years. I started out doing a ‘Good & Bad’ listing blog, but over the years it has evolved into a sort of new music/my thoughts type of thing. 3. Why did you start blogging? I wanted to introduce people to decent content on the internet, mainly music. It felt like there was a lot of great bands out there who weren’t really getting mentioned in the mainstream. The internet basically allowed for the listeners to take more control of previous forms of discovering music and I wanted to be a part of that. 4. Why did you choose WordPress instead of another platform? I love the layout. Plus it’s a simple to use format that feels professional, but also allows me to express myself in a fun, unrestricted way. 5. Are you on twitter, why? Yes (@hairy_mouth). Twitter is THE best way to find news. For example, it has become a platform for bands to make announcements directly to the fans. I’d be stupid not to use it working in the media industry. 6. Are you not on twitter, why? What type of person doesn’t use Twitter? 7. If you can be an animal, which one? I’d probably be one of those fish that live at the bottom of the ocean, right down in the abyss. That way I’d be able to see all of the things that humans haven’t yet discovered. 8. Other than writing, what other talents do you have? I wouldn’t called them talents, but I like making fanzines, using analogue cameras and playing in my band. 9. Has blogging changed you life? Yes I would say it has. I don’t think I would be doing the things I’m doing today if I hadn’t started blogging. Plus it has given me the opportunity to meet some great people and means I have an excellent excuse to spend pretty much every waking minute immersed in music. 10. Will you nominate eleven other people for this award? Yup. 11. Is this your first award? I once won Player of the Year for my local cricket team.
Best of luck to all of the other nominees, and thanks once again.
