Unfortunately for Gavin, about one hundred and seventy two days ago I was lucky enough to make the 3,000th comment on his blog.
Knowing me it was something very deep like "hi, you social media whore", but it was so long ago that I can't quite be sure.
Regardless, it was special.
And caring. And insightful.
And as just reward Gavin kindly offered me the chance to make a guest post on his blog.
While hugely flattered, being a person of images and swear words I was somewhat thrown by this, and promptly buried my head in the sand while four pitches, a three year strategic 'roadmap' and five creative presentations ran over me like a heavily overloaded rubbish truck.
I survived, luckily, and am now finally getting off my proverbial arse to take him up on his incredibly generous offer.
I've decided to make my guest post an interview. Of Gavin. This WAS to take place over battleships one fine Coffee Morning but it appears that one of my clients likes nothing more than getting together from 8am to 10am on Friday mornings to talk about brand values and scene by scene objectives. Heaven.
So, in the spirit of the new world, I may have to *gasp* email him the questions and he can *gasp* answer them on his blog. We'll see.
Anything you've ever wanted to know about Gavin...?
