Selfie Elbow

5th July 2016

I've been taking pictures of myself for around 10 months now and I won't stop until I've snapped myself with 10,000 people from around West Norfolk, Wisbech and Fakenham. This morning I discovered just how dangerous my challenge is though, forget walking on fire, forget eating fire, don't worry about climbing the turbine in Swaffham or spending some time with the King's Lynn Patriots American Football Team, don't even worry about that story of how more people have died taking selfies than have been killed by sharks, there's something far worse than that, Selfie Elbow is a thing!

Selfie Elbow is much like Tennis Elbow, it’s all about overuse of muscles in the elbow which are used when you hold your arm at a funny angle to take the picture and the repetitiveness of clicking the shoot button.

 So far I've met 6715 people, that leaves another 3285 which will include the following people who didn't seem to worried about my health and invited me to their invents today anyway.


  • West Winch Primary School for Sports Day.
  • Springwood High for Pathways to encourage year 10 & 12 to think about the future beyond school. There's also another trip to this school next week for Springfest, a day for year 8's to celebrate their success over the year, otherwise known as Endeavour Day.
  • Howard Infants School for their picnic and fair Today I'm visiting Fakenham and tomorrow will be in Downham tomorrow

If you fancy being part of the challenge and would like to win an IPad too please email me about your event.
