This weekend has been spent at Nottingham University attending a journalism conference. It has made me more determined than ever to succeed as a journalist whilst supplying me with the skills I need to make it. I have always wanted to be a journalist but until now this ambition has been undermined by other things – but no longer. Now I have the skills, the recourses, the ability to make my own future.
Why the blog?
One of my lectures told us to create a blog. So I did. But what do I write about? Anything.
This blog will be filled with article’s I’ve wrote, articles that have been published, work experience, contacts I’ve made – my journey to where I want to be.
What I have learned from this weekend is that only I can be the catalyst to my success. Cheesy, I know, but true. Nobody else can get me work experience. Nobody else can get me contacts. Nobody else can run my blog.
I will do this, and I will do it well.
“Make success a habit”
Not cheesy!!! You are the catalyst to your own success!! The bigger the risk the bigger the reward! Ok, so maybe a little cheese 😉 but hey thats what great stories are made from!!! Good luck!
Best of luck!
