The Beauty of MySpace

Follow-up to MySpace from For blog's sake

So, the MySpace page seems to be going well…

We now have 11 friends and I have received a few favourable comments about the idea but I can't believe that it didn't provoke more of a response here… I was kind of expecting a "why would you want to do that? what's the point in myspace - I don't get it?" so it was nice to receive some positive comments instead.

Our 'friends' so far consist of student bands (Jaffa Rose and Carter Manoeuvre), bands who will be playing the SU (Delays and Boy Kill Boy), PunkSoc society, Research (the new SU night) and a couple of students. Now I will just sit back and wait for some more friends…

But before I go, a little something for those of you who wanted to say 'what's the point in myspace - I don't get it?' but didn't... I received an amusing email this morning forwarded from an old friend of mine who produces University Yearbooks:

Morning boss,
I would like to thank you for setting up a myspace page. This has enabled me to trace friends of your friends and discover that the world is beautiful by proxy…
mate of Ellie's… link
mate of Ellie's mate… link
leading to the holy grail of 'mate of Ellie's mate's mate'... link
Oh…...My…......God…..... and then check out HER mates!?!?!?!?!?!?

So as you see – MySpace has so many useful purposes! No, but really – it does…

About me

My name is Ellie Lovell and I am the Web Editor in the Communications Office at the University of Warwick.

I started this blog in August 2005 when I started working at the University and have learnt a lot from it. I don’t update it so much anymore (I have been unfaithful to WarwickBlogs) but I hope you enjoy what is here…
