This is just to let you know that Connie is now on Viddy.
The way we found out about Viddy was rather curious. Connie’s manager, Rod Paul, happened to be reading the newspapers one day (as you do) and he came across an article in the Los Angeles Times about a mobile app/website known as Viddy which has been attracting followers very fast recently.
Viddy has been called "the Twitter for videos" - you follow people, they follow you, and everyone uploads videos, but they must be 15 seconds or less. The mobile app is only available on the iPhone right now, but an Android version will be ready soon, they tell us. Of course, you can always watch Viddy from a PC or a Mac, if you prefer that.
So, Rod showed the article to Connie and her sister Mollie, and they checked out the Viddy app. They thought it was a really good idea, and Connie was eager to get started with it.
Later that day, Connie showed me her list of ideas for possible viddys. At first glance, all I could see was a page full of amazing pictures and words and colors and swirly bits everywhere. I said, “Wow, Connie, that’s a great piece of artwork! Maybe you should put it on exhibition at the National Gallery in London?”
It took Connie a while to convince me it was actually a list. I’m sure everyone will forgive me for being a bit slow on the uptake. When I make lists, they look kind of... list-like and, well, a bit dull really. It takes some time for me to adjust to the idea of working with someone like Connie, who makes lists that look like works of art.
If you follow Connie on Viddy, you can expect to see some of the ideas on that list turned into viddys very soon. Click here to go to Viddy.com and watch some viddys from Connie!
Anyway, what I’m trying to say is, that the LA Times article tells us that Justin Bieber has a keen interest in Viddy, and that he is giving it his full support. So, Justin, if you happen to be reading this, just to let you know that Connie Talbot is also now on Viddy, and that she supports it too!
