The world wide web has been taken by the storm that is JTL, or Johnny The Lad to those who don’t like to use acronyms. He is a man of wisdom, with a truckload of sneakers; and in his blog http://www.seasonofsneakers.com/ he cleverly combines the two.
Me: What motivated you to start your blog?
JTL: Having more than enough shoes that I could easily wear a different pair each day for a whole season.
Me: Your blog has become much more than just about sneakers, was this always your intention?
JTL: This wasn’t my intention, I was expecting a question or two every few days but not this. The majority of questions aren’t even about sneakers, I can’t believe how many questions get asked.
Me: You’ve become something of a Modern Guru, have you considered talk back radio? Or doing an Agony Aunt style column in Cleo?
JTL: I haven’t considered this, but when winter 2010 comes to an end if there is some extra work out there that I could do i’d be interested, hit us up.
Me: What’s the hardest question you’ve been asked so far?
JTL: The Stones or The Beatles?
Me: What is your motto in life?
JTL: I did get asked this question before and said: just be yourself and don’t worry what other people think. But I’ll give you another one: what is life if you don’t have fun.
Me: What is the one talent you wish you had?
JTL: I wish I could dance like Michael Jackson.
