What’s a blog?

My son actually asked me this the other morning. He’s 17 so I was surprised he was none the wiser to one of the greatest communication tools ever conceived. Then again maybe not. He’s into music and his favourite social media sites are YouTube and SoundCloud. I told him to google it. This is what came up.



  1. 1.

    a regularly updated website or web page, typically one run by an individual or small group, that is written in an informal or conversational style.


  1. 1.

    add new material to or regularly update a blog.

    “it’s about a week since I last blogged”

With these definitions in mind I started asking myself some questions about my own blog/social media project on these pages.

Why Out There Press?

It’s a serviceable name for a digital media and marketing service – it implies getting news and content out there to the public at large. With the blog we’re looking to create more of an ezine with lefty/arty leanings. I’ll update the details as we go.

Each week I’ll blog about projects I’m involved in, interview creatives from a variety of industries, and share the best news and features content on everything out there from career and lifestyle to politics and the economy from around the web. We’ll also update you on the web. 

Oh and one last thing – saying something is ‘out there’ usually denotes that it’s a ridiculous or slightly mad concept or proposal. The phrase is often used in conjunction with that other well-worn term, the ‘conspiracy theory’. Funnily enough, Out There Press are pretty fond of the odd conspiracy theory themselves and will be showcasing some of the best. So buckle up, put on your tinfoil and join us for a journey that will hopefully shake you in your seat every now and then but will, for the most part, be entertaining, educational or just plain epic. I hope you enjoy it.
