I’m sure you’ve heard of the craze “selflies”?
Kids are doing it everywhere and posting photos of themselves on Instagram, Facebook, Twitter and so on… I know I’m forever deleting photos of my daughter, from my phone (I keep the good ones!).
I’ve actually never been able to understand the push to take a photo of ones self. I avoid the camera if possible – something to do with my Rudolf red, sun damaged nose and skin!
However, there is a new push called Felfies. Have you heard of it?
I hadn’t either, until the week end when my Twitter buddy @NYFarmer tweeted about it. I tweeted back, saying, ‘Sorry to be dense, but what’s a felfie.’ (I’d rather ask and look stupid than join in a conversation not knowing, and look stupid!)
So, it’s now all the craze amongst farmers – and another brilliant way of showing people our world. It’s a FARMER SELFIE. Just take a photo of you with your stock/dog/machinery/land in the background.
It’s even got some newspaper space here.
So let’s get into the spirit and post photos on Instagram and Facebook of Felfies! Just use the hashtag #felfie and let’s see if we can get it trending on Twitter! (I’m just off to take mine!)
Oh, and while I’ve got you here… Can I make an unashamed plea for you to head across to Booktopia and throw a vote to which ever novelist you may think is your favourite (if you thought you could vote for me, I’d be really thrilled and humbled.) Click HERE to vote.
Done. Shared Facebook and posted on twitter 🙂
