We now return to normal programming

I’m, baaaaaaaack!  Yes – back for more cynical, hysterically funny (in my mind atleast) social commentaries!  The brief break in transmissions was necessary to push the Toldyah website but is now over. 

But why, I hear you ask?????????

Yesterday was pitch day for MEGA.  A practice pitch the previous night had been horrendous – felt like George Bush delivering one of his sterling performances hehehe.  So I pulled an all-nighter and fixed it – woo hoo – more like an slick Barack Obama performance now.  

How did it go????  I was happy with the pitch (it can always be better).  So now we move on and keep pushing Toldyah forward and getting the word out.  We also need to kidnap a Tech Cofounder from MIT and rob a bank to get the money we need to Toldyah a huge overnight success, but shhhhh, those plans are just between you and me – ok?

We have a competition running right now to celebrate the launch of the website. So no post today – just a begging letter…

please register at the website and help us get some numbers on the board, and if you are an Australian resident you could win a  GIFT CARD – even more if you also upload a vid!

Check out the competition HERE


Here’s one we prepared earlier

YES, yes – for my one reader, today marks a turning point – a day of pure, unadulterated excitement.  Why, you ask…….. ah Mr X I can always count on you for the right response! 

Today, it THE day.  Unveiling the plans.  With a wave of my magic wand, taaaaaah daaaaaaaaaah………its the official non-launch!  Cue the fanfare, streamers and doves.

Hehe, non-launch………’cos yes, there is a live site, and yes the business model is now public (NO COPYING MSSRs BRANSON, GATES, etc etc).  But it isnt actually the real site – it is a test site, so no official launch, just a little private lap dance *wink wink*

I can hear the anticipation in your sucked in breath, the inaudible muttering of get on with it…. such excitement to get to the big unveil…..patience dear reader.  Modern convention means you have to get thru the ad break before you can sample the nirvana-like qualities for Toldyah in the flesh.   Well, in the ether really, isn’t it.

What you are about to sample isn’t finished or even fully functioning – I talked previously about my lack of technical knowledge, and I did this myself!  BTW – if you are technically challenged and want a cool website give wix.com a go – they are Aussies and it is pretty simple to do!

Well – that’s the advertising done, so on with the show – are you ready? Hold on to your undies and get ready for the ride! 

LADIES AND GENTLEMEN – introducing, for your viewing pleasure: TOLDYAH……… We’ll Make Yah Famous.  An entertainment hub to share your consumer experiences by video.  Upload a video and we’ll do the rest.  Check out the reviews, make shopping fun with mobile scanning technology. Earn rewards for tell us what you’ve bought and what you thought about it!

Check it Out – and please – send me vid’s to upload  I need them ASAP to pitch to investors next Wednesday 28 July.  Keep them under a minute or so, and send as many as you like.  I am setting up a YouTube channel tonight and will put the link in here as soon as I can.

Woo hoo – now the ride has really started!

My name is Toldyah & I’m an addict…..

Forgive me Facebook, for I have sinned, it has been 6 hours since my last status update.   I am a bad girl. 

Twitter, Twitter, wherefore art thou?  I havent commented on my daily activities since this morning.  

Send me a check box, right now, for I havent done a check-in this weekend.

OMG….. I am a social media junkie.

I need my fix, and nothing else will do.  TV – pfffffffft.  Get thee behind me!  A book, well, that’s nice entertainment and all, but nothing, NOTHING, is like the stirring roller coaster that is social media.  So many experiences and emotions: that warmth spreading through the veins from throwing a sheep, that hit of ecstasy from being the wittiest comment on a friend’s photo or the soul-deep satisfaction of being Mayor.

The warning signs were there of course.  Elbowing old ladies away from the door of the train in an effort to get home quicker to do the latest Facebook poll.   Causing mass panic by triggering the evacuation alarm at work so I can run out with my smart phone and check Richard Branson‘s latest Twitter effort. Making spurious claims of food poisoning after a visit to a particular food establishment so I would be the only person checking in – and making me Mayor.   It’s all harmless fun isn’t it…….ummmm, isn’t it?

I am relieved to know I am not the only one!  Korea – home of the tasty flaming barbecue and the most insane online gamers in the world – is very concerned.  Now – to paint the picture – Korea has reality tv unlike the rest of us – theirs is based on watching online gamers compete against one another.  Ratings are  massive, people having knocked off ticket holders just to be in the audience. In those hours they are not gaming or watching gaming, they spend their time on social media commenting about gaming, oh and Justin Bieber of course.  They are seriously hooked on the invisible waves connecting our world.  Korean parents, when not busy themselves slaying mythical creatures, are worried about their kids.  Gamer’s thumb, laptop eye, and the ever-present oops forgot to do my homework flu are so threatening to the national interest that clinics are being set up.

This is in fact, excellent news.  Toldyah needs these addicts!  Give me your tired, your poor, Your huddled masses yearning to breathe free, the wretched refuse of your teeming shore.

Toldyah will give them fun and excitement, shopping deals and most of all, STARDOM!  So come on over, let me introduce you to a new high.

Come join Make Me Famous on Facebook, and feel that exhilarating RUSH, the pumping of your blood, the warmth of the spotlight.

What are you waiting for?

I, Toldyah

Woo Hoo – Mojo is BACK!

Yessssssssssssssssss.   It’s back!  My mojo – thank you for returning my friend – was a bloody hard slog without Yah!

My long-term readers will have realised on opening the blog that


Yep – time to get serious about the branding – and lots of other things too!   So the corporate colours are now in play, along with logos.  This will change again once the Website is up and running and incorporates the blog, but for now, we have this new look in place – ahhhhhhhhh – feels much more homey already!

Kick off your shoes, pull up a nice comfy recliner, grab a bowl of popcorn and get ready to be entertained peeps!

I am aiming high……..  I expect big things.  I want to be a household name.  But I need you readers to help.  I promise to make the ride fun, and reward you as well.

So – why did things change:  I pitched and did better than I thought I would.  And I have regained the confidence in my idea that should never ever have left me!  Time to revisit the schedule, move along the timelines, get some pre-launch videos done.  Toldyah must start telling ppl!

Anyone wanting a bit part in some funny short spoof outtakes please let me know – can’t pay you in anything but love right now but I WILL remember your help in the future.  If you can do a UK or US accent I definitely need yah!

Let’s get this moving!

I, Toldyah
