Selfie (n). A photograph taken of oneself, by oneself, for oneself.

In my opinion, the fact this word exists highlights everything that is wrong with us as a species. Put simply: if it were a human, I’d slap it.

I realise I’m alienating probably everyone on Facebook by writing this. And yes, I admit, I have posted a couple of pictures of me-me-me up over the years. Though rarely taken by me, I hasten to add.

It’s not that I think there’s anything wrong with liking the way that you look. It’s great. Quite refreshing. And I do think our world would be a better place if we didn’t hark on about how horrible we feel all the time.

However.

Posting evidence of how great we think we look, so that others can reaffirm this greatness, is just – well – wrong. Wrong, wrong, wrong. On so many levels, WRONG.

[clearing throat] Or is it?

Mulling it over, I’ve considered I really shouldn’t knock it till I’ve tried it. It might be amazing, liberating even. Getting all my Instagram/Facebook/Twitter friends to ‘like’ truly marvellous and fantastical me… Come hither devil, this is rather enticing.

So I thought I’d give it a go.

Now, forgive me if I get it wrong…

…though I’m p r e t t y sure I won’t…

You see, the whole idea is to share every intimate detail of my life with the INTERNET.

Isn’t it?

Guess what day it is today, people?

I’ll leave you to decide if I should continue with this.
