I’ve been blogging for just over two years, over on musicshewrote, as well as contributing to web magazines and music websites in the way of interviews and event reviews. But, upon graduating in Law in 2010, travelling to Nepal to live, teach & learn and now, working full time in social media (as well as being involved in some side projects); time has taken a major toll.
I knew I wanted to continue blogging however – it had become so much more than just a hobby, but also a path of discovery and part of my life (it even helped me to get the job I have today!) so I looked around at different “group blogs” and made enquiries about becoming a contributor. What caught my eye about Y&Y was primarily the quality of the content, as well as the diverse range of topics discussed and also the level of professionalism that came across when I contacted Yin. Working in social media means that I look at hundreds of blogs each week, and you really start to work out the good from the bad!
Anyway, here I am – a contributor for one of my favourite blogs :-)! I’d say most of my blogs will be on advertising, music and events – as that’s where my interests lie, but I’m also into fashion, film, food, international development, African culture and a major Hip Hop head!
I tend to over-punctualise, write in the same tone of voice as I speak, talk/write too much and be extremely opinionated…I guess you could call it my “personal” writing style? Haha!
Anyway, thank you for having me, Y&Y family & readers!
