As first entry for my infamous Blog Topic Challenge, I thought I'd begin with an elementary and logical first step. James Whatley, SpinVox blogger and great friend of mine, suggested that I should "write about your job and everyone you have ever met in your niche industry…" Great suggestion, but there are just too many awesome people I've met so I'll split this into two entries, concentrating on the "write about your job" part first.
From one day to the next, I wear many hats... and wigs... and tiaras. By daylight, I'm part of a great team at Taptu. It's my first time taking part in the early days of a startup and I'm really enjoying it. There are new challenges every day, which is a refreshing change from previous jobs where tasks were repetitive to say the least (could YOU spend 52 weeks a year sending email newsletters that always say the same thing? I couldn't.)
These days, there's blogging, attending events, handling search engine optimisation (which I love), researching new ideas for the search engine, speaking to our mobile search users as well as our Facebook app users to get their feedback (which I love even more!) and planning future super-secret projects which I can't tell you about yet... unless you ply me with shiny gadgets, at which point I might just crack. Or not. (But you can offer me shiny gadgets anyways!) ;)
My job also entails making copious amounts of coffee every day and occasionally teasing Bob about his taste in movies and Lynsey about her Scrabulous choice of words.
All in all, it's exciting and challenging. And no, you can't have my job!
