Stand Out In The Cloud

I'm trying to stand out in the digital age – see how I get on

The Mission Statement

Hello. My name is Patrick and I’m trying to stand out in the cloud.

I’ve just started an MA in Interactive Journalism at City University, London and as such I am desperately trying to up my digital game so I can stand out as an effective journalistic presence.

The upsetting part is that, currently, my digital presence is not the best.

As of last week I have around 90 followers on Twitter – @PatrickScott17 – and my Tweeting frequency is shockingly sporadic. Although it must be said that your Twitter account is not a completely accurate representation of your online presence, it is, at least, a good indicator.


In order to remedy this I have set up this blog in the hope that I can use the posts from it to explore and experiment with the many ways of ‘standing out in the cloud’.

Hopefully I can take some readers with me.

If you have any questions about my posts or any suggestions as to what I should look into next, please let me know. Comment or email me at
