A Wannabe Journalist…


A blog is the unedited voice of a person.

The lack of editing is central, because it’s one person who’s responsible for every word. When you click the Publish button you should feel butterflies, at least sometimes, because there’s no one to pass the buck to. If someone else wrote the headline, or did a copy edit, or even reviewed what you wrote and critiqued it before it went out, it’s still writing, but it is not a blog.  Dan Kennedy – Medium.com

I believe I was living in Kitchener, Ontario when I saw an advertisement about looking for people who are interested in being on radio, etc., This was still in the age of Commodore 64.  I answered the ad and they setup an interview with me to do a test with radio script.  They told me I had the right type of voice to do radio.

Everyone once in awhile I look at the idea of doing some type of podcast, an internet radio station like what Shoutcast offers.

Just over two years ago this blog was barely breathing, I was thinking about just closing out the account.  I am not really sure how I came to start writing about my struggles with my mental health.  So I started to write about my journey.  It went slow for quite some time, but then I started to see some movement with the blog.  I was totally flabbergasted on how it started to go.  I knew nothing about “Categories and Tags”, then somehow I connected with V. She was gracious and explained how they worked. 

I have often thought that being a true journalist would be a great career, I had the English credits on my High School transcript.  I love reading, yet I really never thought of myself as a great writer.  I am starting to notice a difference with my writing. I believe it is because writing is like a muscle, it needs to be used, strengthened. 

So dear reader, this blogger is a wannabe journalist. It is you who gives me wind to continue writing on this blog!
