Interview of a JetPunker #1 - Malkiboy

+7

Hello everyone!

Welcome in this new series, "Interview of a JetPunker"!

In each blog, I will ask questions to a JetPunker (known or not) and he will give us all answers that we wanted!

In this first numero, Malkiboy is interviewed. I hope you will enjoy (I wait your comments about it). Good reading!

baptistegorce: Hi Malki!

Malkiboy: 'ello Poirot*!

baptistegorce: Let’s start this interview! First, could you present yourself on JetPunk quickly for our readers who don’t know you (it seems impossible, but maybe…)?

Malkiboy: I’m Malkiboy and I’m a JetPunker (obviously or else I wouldn’t be here ). My main specialty is blogs. I rarely make quizzes nowadays, but you can take a look at some quizzes but don’t expect any good quizzes

baptistegorce: You are known for your excellent blogs, and in particular for the “Life of the JetPunker”. How do you explain this huge success?

Malkiboy: I don’t think I’ve told anyone this, but on the day before I published the first LOAJ, I was preparing myself for people hating my work, trolling, me becoming depressed etc. So obviously I was extremely surprised by people liking it and how many people read it (Blogs were new then so I didn’t expect people to read them). How people liked the first few are beyond me So how do I explain the success? Probably the best or one of the most important lessons I learnt is not to make humour forced. Sitcoms and YouTube comedies have sound effects in the background encouraging people to laugh, so when I started writing LOAJ, I thought I needed to try to do the same thing. But the moment I realised I didn’t need to do that in order to make humour, I felt my writing improved by a lot. Humour isn’t everything which contributes to success, but there’s plot and characters and others.

baptistegorce: How and where do you find the inspiration for this serie (and your blogs in general)?

Malkiboy: When I first started the LOAJ, my inspiration was probably from YouTube comedies. But now, a lot of it is from imagination. For blogs in general, it's mainly whatever comes to mind. Not gonna lie, I was a bit dependent on Wikipedia but now a lot of it is imagination.

baptistegorce: In “Life of the JetPunker”, one of the main characters is Jamie Da Boss. Is this boy inspired by you?

Malkiboy: No. JamieDaBoss (or as I call him 'Jamie the JetPunker') isn't inspired by me. If I'm honest, the character whose probably most similar to me is Enrique.

baptistegorce: Your skills to write are just amazing. Do you use them in your life?

Malkiboy: Writing does help improve my essaywork etc. so it's actually quite handy.

baptistegorce: What are your goals writing blogs on JetPunk?

Malkiboy: Mostly to have fun. However, blogs like LOAJ (Life of a JetPunker) #7 & #12 have more of a purpose than for fun. And I started a blog series called 'HTML For Formatting Blog Posts' (thanks to Pandora49 for taking over) to help people with formatting blogs, but I'm surprised by how many people don't know how to form paragraphs until I told them. That makes me thing I went through all that trouble to make that blog for nothing

baptistegorce: To end with the “Life of a JetPunker”, will you continue this serie long time?

Malkiboy: Yes. I honestly don't know when I'm going to stop LOAJ. I may not write as frequently, but I won't stop for now, but we'll see. But I know I'll be sad when I stop writing for good .

baptistegorce: What is the most important event in your own life of a JetPunker?

Malkiboy: Most important? I honestly don't know. I guess when I stopped making quizzes and became a blogger was important. But what happened to get my first feature (which is sadly defeatured now) was important. Maybe there isn't one single one but some which are equally important.

baptistegorce: If you had to choose just three JetPunker for their quizzes, who will it be?

Malkiboy: I'd have to choose Stewart, scambigol (I like their quizzes despite some being outdated) and the last option I don't know, but I know of some JetPunkers who produce amazing quizzes.

baptistegorce: And for their blogs?

Malkiboy: It's hard to choose 3 'cause I know some people who make great ones. In an unspecified order, I'd choose Pandora49, Stewart and kiwirage. I like many others, so don't be upset if you didn't appear on this list

baptistegorce: What are your passions in life, except JetPunk?

Malkiboy: I've considered becoming a writer (obviously).I've considered other things as well. Writing just seems the most attractive to me (but it's also difficult making a profession out of writing).

(Malkiboy didn't want to answer the twelfth question, so I cut it)

baptistegorce: What do you think about the JetPunk development in the next months? What do you hope?

Malkiboy: I definitely want more development to blogs. I don't know how long I can go on with the limited additions to blogs . The life of a JetPunk blogger is a hard one . It's a hard knock life for us, it's a hard knock for us.

baptistegorce: It's the end of this interview. Thanks a lot for answering, Malkiboy!

Malkiboy: You're welcome!

It's the end of this interview! I hope you have liked. If yes, I could continue this series to know more about other JetPunkers!

P.-S.:As some of you probably know, my English is away to be perfect. I have decided to write this serie in English to help you to better understand (French users don't really read blogs, sadly...). If you see any mistake, please, tell me in comments. As it, the quality of my English blogs will maybe improve. Thanks a lot for understanding!

Nice blog. Also, series is singular. Series is the plural of series. Serie is not a word.
