Originally I was on flavors.me, but found that Glossi suited my needs better in a visual sense. Glossi is a really aesthetically appealing and engaging ID hub, and works well with what I do in that you can look at all of my content at once, or filter – so just looking at images, just looking at videos, just looking at articles I’ve shared. Always with the Twitter feed on the side, too. Glossi truly works as the centre of online experience. It has an awesomely chaotic look about it; it’s organised chaos, encapsulating the whole nature of being online. The perfect way to represent an online ID. I’ve noticed that since beginning this course, it’s been harder to choose which platform/site to list as my main one. Do I want people to see my formal portfolio (Wordpress), or my conversational style (Twitter), or my videos (Vimeo) more? Therefore, it’s been very cool and felt very natural to be passing around a single URL instead.

THAO My online ID is a bit all over the place, and that’s the way I like it.I have been trying very hard to interact more, as opposed to just lurking. There’s a mixture of the informal and the formal. I have a silly sense of humour but also like a sense of order to things. I believe my online ID is beginning to reflect this, and will continue to develop.
THAO My ID mission?I’d like to be seen as someone who is results-driven and professional, but with a sense of humour.I’m inspired by people like Noelle Stevenson, aka Gingerhaze, who strike a balance between work and personal online. Gingerhaze is known for her utterly silly, hilarious webcomics based on films, characters and actors. She has an awesome sense of individual style and voice.

The coolest interactions I’ve had on Twitter so far!
OTHER COMMUNITIESCreative communities such as Etsy will be useful to my ID,as I can join themed groups, or ‘teams’, allowing me tointeract with both creators and enthusiasts.Specific aspects of large humour and mediacommunities sites such as Cracked.com and The AVClub may also be useful; Id like to expand my network,my skills, and plain have fun by taking part in thesecommunities.
