About Me

I’m a 20-something Brit named Laurence Warner, better known to the world as performing-artist Cerulean, and I write a fair bit.

I write the songs (& occasional script) for my Cerulean Sounds productions, with a focus on conceptual lyrics & wordplay.
I also write a little code for the modern websites I design from time-to-time.

I like to comment on both - The Arts, and Tech - industries from my perspective as an indie creator and share useful things I learn.
So I write this personal blog about those two areas, plus the occasional bit of daily Life to direct subscribers who:

I believe the internet should be OURS(S). Creating a blog like this (via the wonderful indie tech Micro.blog) is an ideal way of owning your content on the open web.
Only familiar with social media? Well getting started is as easy as.. well tweeting (something M.b can do for you btw). Pick a username and say “Hello, World”. You can tackle big boy tings like custom domain & web design later if you want. If you need more convincing it’s worthwhile:
๐ŸŽง 30m podcast about why non-technical creatives should join the community
๐Ÿ“บ my 20m keynote at the inaugural “Micro Camp” about the creative possibilities once you do
If you do signup to Micro.blog, I recommend following this video guide, and @warner me once you’re in for more personal advice on getting going.

If you’re already a seasoned blogger, you can start by importing your posts, like I did for my Medium & WordPress blogs (all posts before my M.b โ€œHello, World” in June 2020) in the ‘Sub-topics’ archive.
Like all my personal websites, I only collect cookie-free (ABCD-compliant) analytics here which I make publicly available (pre-2022 summary, incl. when blog was at blog.w4rner.com pre-Jun ‘21). I encourage you to do the same, so we can carve out a corner of the web as it was intended to be (flashback): for mutually-respecting humans to share ideas & information.
