Welcome to Tickled, a blog for anyone with a sense of humour and an affinity with the written word.
Have you ever laughed out loud in public…and pretended it was a cough? Chuckled at life’s absurdities? Had your funny bone tickled by a howler in a newspaper/on a sign/within a website? Caught only half a conversation and jumped to entirely the wrong conclusion? Written a word so often it no longer makes sense? ‘Each’ for example. Try writing that 100 times and then attempt to define it!
As a content specialist, words are my friends. I spend a lot of time alternately loving them, hating them, wrestling and playing with them, all in the name of developing a meaningful relationship. Most of all I enjoy pulling them back into shape when they’ve lost their way… they often return the favour.
Like friends, words can clump together and astound you with their wittiness or cut you to the quick with their honesty. That’s what I love – words that make you think twice or laugh like a drain.
Some of the posts here will be thought-provoking, others will be downright funny. I’ll be posting things that tickle me gently along my writing path. I’d be honoured if you’d do the same.
Purplefeather is the name of my online content agency. I write all day every day and stumble over so many things that make me laugh and ponder that I wanted to share. Tickled seemed a great way to bring together my company name and sense of humour.
