It’s Lau. And I have another blogging chat, with the talented blogger Connor Gurney. He has a very cool blog that is full of laughter and some really deep posts.
Anyway, here the chat:
Me: Lets just start off with a topic… Life. Tell me about it.
Con: It’s like a box of chocolates. You never know what you’re going to get!
Me: Very true, risk taking makes life a bit more adventurous.
Con: Spot on! Risks are great in proportion.
Me: Personally, I never take risks. I’m very cautious and try to make my life as drama free as possible
Con: Why? What scares you?
Me: Something could very much go wrong, I can’t take that risk.
Con: But something could very much go right too!
Me: True, at some point risks need to be made. Maybe soon. Anyways, let’s talk about you, tell the readers a bit about yourself.
Con: Right, that’s a tough one. I’m 18, I founded my own business and have been teaching myself to program for almost 9 years, I teach coding voluntarily at a private all girls school in York, I used to lead a team of journalists around the world and I ran the first site for survivors of the Grenfell Tower fire reaching 200,000 people in 2 weeks. Now, how about you?
Me: You’re very successful. Well, I’m 17, I started my blog in March and have been making frequent posts ever since. When I was younger I was into dance, I did quite a lot of dance actually. A few weeks ago, I won an award and that was cool. I don’t really have much else to say.
Con: As are you! 😄 Work hard, play harder. Well done on the award! So, what got you into dance?
Me: Thank you, it just something I really liked when I was younger. I’ve always been very creative. What got you into coding?
Con: You seem it from your blog! 😄 I accidentally opened the source code of a web page one day, and got curious… learnt to code before it was cool for 9-year-olds to. 😂
Me: That’s really cool, I’ve never understood coding. But for a 9 year old to develop a passion for it, that’s amazing.
Con: It was such a nice feeling when I built my first webpage… bit bright though! 😂
Me: What colour did you go for?
Con: It was bright pink text on a bright blue background, combined with Comic Sans for the font. Awful! 😂
Me: You went bold then, any child would do colours..as an adult you kind of tone it down.
Con: Indeed! My sense of design still isn’t that strong. How about yours?
Me: I try to, I do like it but just not that great at it. I’m always trying
Con: Keep at it! What’s your biggest strength?
Me: Probably kindness. I like to think of myself as kind. What about yours?
Con: You really are. I think mine has to be programming — I’m no expert, but I can sure as hell get by!
Me: Definitely, and you’re awesome at it. I’m going to end this post here. Thank you so much.
Con: Thanks for the chat!
