The Secret Loft is a new website and project launched by local, Joleen Gavey and released on Tuesday March 16th. The locally unique website presents original, diverse short fiction stories. The stories are broken up into chapters and released separately so you only read a chapter per each book update – That is of course if you start from the time the first chapter is released. The idea reminds me a bit of episodic content which has been proven to be successful in mediums like video games and television.

The site is designed and developed by husband, Derek Gavey. Upon launch, the first chapter of “In My Solitude” was released.

A little bit more about Joleen:

I only started writing fiction about a year ago. It’s kind of a new thing. I say “kind of”, because I’ve always written things down, scribbled on scraps of paper, in notebooks.

The stories featured in the Secret Loft are about other people. Most of them are people I’ve never met. All of these people have their own secrets, but they also have some stories to share. So, this website is dedicated to presenting them in an accessible, beautiful way. It has already been a very interesting process. I hope that the stories prove a worthwhile diversion from reality; no one should have to spend too much time there.

Tweeps is the word used to describe Twitter users and even though it sounds silly and a bit pretentious, it’s far better than saying “twitterers”. Either way, Twitter has become a truly invaluable tool in terms of media and social communication. Even if it is 75% useless personal comments or spam, that other 25% can inform you in ways other mediums can not (and will not). Based on who you follow, any single or general topic is available for your consumption – you can have this information instantly as the tweeps sends it out. Best of all, you can digest the full content easily because there is a limit of 140 characters, which plays a part in the mobile world, but also forces people to strictly write the most important things.

I previously did a post previously entitled “Medicine Hat Twitte’ers” in hopes to keep an up-to-date place to post Medicine Hat tweeps, but decided it would be too hard to upkeep. It’s far better to just take a gander at who Medicine Hat Media follows to get a complete list of active Medicine Hat tweeps. Hopefully nobody takes this post too seriously, it’s not like I am the Twitter expert or anything. Here is my pick for the best five Tweeps in Medicine Hat based on the below criteria and descriptions: THE JUMP – Read the rest of this entry »
