Exploring Journalism

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.
