Regretting Another Anniversary

Sometimes things slip away. Weeks, months, nay, years go by and you can’t believe how long something has been.

Sometimes anniversaries sneak up on us. Am I right? Have you ever missed your wedding anniversary?  

But wait, I’m not talking about a traditional relationship anniversary, but in another way I am referring to a kind of relationship. A virtual relationship. Our relationship. The relationship between blogger and reader, social media guru and fellow like minded folk, writers and writers.

Running a blog, like anything in writing and the media, requires constant work. You cannot write a novel if you ignore the previous chapters for 7 months. You can’t perform poetry if you don’t keep reading it and practicing it on your own in the front room. You won’t grow a social media following if you don’t update regularly. 

My point is, and I am beating about the bush a bit today (can you tell I’m out of practice?) that my blog has been left for basically two years. Reason being: an internship. And an MA. Excuses, excuses… I’m sorry.

Understandably, careers and Master’s degrees do have a habit of taking over one’s life. But I am now free. And I am ready to do this for fun again!!! 

I don’t plan for many of my future posts to be stream of consciousness like this one is today. But I do want to update it regularly with my writing, my tips and advice and some silly bits along the way. 

Stay tuned, please don’t let me forget to check in from time to time

Internship Week 1 – Feeling Professional

internships

It is week 1 of my internship at The SMF Group in Cambridge. I am a content writer for their blog covering all things social media related. It’s absolutely amazing to be able to sit here and write, all day long. This has certainly given me the fighting spirit to keep writing and not to ever give up. It’s so worth it when you realise how many people are reading your work.

Here is the link to my first 3 pieces published on the group’s blog in my 1st week:

1. Is about Virtual Reality apps in Facebook

2. Focuses on Burberry’s uses for Twitter

I have written and researched quite a few more articles so I’m hoping to get them up on the site soon, just down to my editor now.

I’m loving this internship and I’m already dreading my 3 months being up! And to any student or aspiring writer out there, you need to get out there and intern!

I love sitting in this office, I love having my own desk, I want to be a journalist so bad. I could happily do this for a few years.
