The idea of writing a new blog phased me a little so when 2014 came around I set myself a mission to finally create a blog. Only three months in and I have plucked up the courage to start. Having read quite a few blogs before starting my own, I was worried that mine would lack originality. I spoke to bloggers who I consider to be experts in the field. They all gave me great advice and ideas for how to start my own.
Now I write for 10 professional publications, covering news, fashion, lifestyle, technology, culture and theatre reviews. I look at all my portfolios and I think to myself I have all the evidence of my work but no log of my bibliography, my journey of how I got to write for so many publications.
I was going to use this online domain as a portfolio of all my online links to my published works. However I feel that by doing that you still don’t hear it from me how I got there in the first place.
Therefore this blog is called Gemma’s Journey. Cheesy I know but you will get to know that I am into cheese and all that jazz. In my blog I will write about my journey being a young writer so far and the directions I have taken to get there.
Now of course I will still provide links to my reviews if I have seen something during the week when I write this blog. Or if I think of something that interests me I will post it on here.
I write for so many publications that I am rushed of my feet but bare with me, I do hope to keep this blog regularly updated.
