10 Cool Internet Easter Eggs (Part 3)

Another batch of hidden internet tricks for Easter...


Humpty Dumpty, the original Easter egg.
I love weird tricks and novelties you can sometimes find hidden on the internet so from time to time I like to feature a selection of my favourite tricks (more commonly known as Easter eggs) on this blog.

As it's Easter this weekend I therefore thought it would be the perfect time to round-up another batch of cool internet Easter eggs in a post which I've creatively titled '10 Cool Internet Easter Eggs (Part 3)'.

1) The Harlem Shake on YouTube

First up is a really cool hidden internet Easter egg found on YouTube which gets into the spirit of the latest craze for uploading Harlem Shake videos to YouTube.  Go to YouTube and type 'do the Harlem Shake' into the search box, and as well as listing a selection of Harlem Shake videos, you'll find that YouTube also does a Harlem Shake of its own...

How I Got Thousands Of Followers On Twitter … Absolutely Free! by Lady Gaga

One woman’s account of how she increased her twitter audience: A guest post by Lady Gaga.


Lady Gaga reveals her strategy for gaining
thousands of followers on twitter.
Our thanks go to Lady Gaga for writing this guest post…

“Thanks first of all Charles for giving me, Lady Gaga, this opportunity to write a guest post for your blog.

A few years ago in the early days of twitter, I used to look on enviously at some of the top twitter users like Stephen Fry and the massive twitter following they commanded and wonder to myself, ‘Will I ever be as popular as Stephen on twitter?’  One thing was sure, that popularity wasn’t going to come about if I just sat around twiddling my thumbs doing nothing about it, and so after considering several options I devised a clever plan in order to gain myself thousands of followers on twitter.

'Be Careful What You Wish For' - The Blurb

How to write a blurb for a sequel without spoiling the plot...


The second book in the How To Save The World saga,
Part 2A - Be Careful What You Wish For.
A few weeks ago I proudly announced the release of the second and third books in the How To Save The World series…

How To Save The World: Part 2A – Be Careful What You Wish For

And...

How To Save The World: Part 2B – By Whatever Means Necessary

This week I wanted to feature a brief description of the plot for ‘Be Careful What You Wish For’ but it’s tricky to write a blurb for a book when it’s the second book in a series and you therefore can’t go into too much detail without spoiling the plot for anyone who hasn’t read the first book yet.

I had a few attempts at trying to write the blurb for part 2A without revealing the plot in any great detail, but in the end it was like trying to describe chocolate to someone who’s never tasted chocolate before.  I therefore eventually decided that the best way to do a blurb for part 2A would be to simply just write it and then censor out any offending plot spoilers.

So here it is…
