Today I missed out on my dream job.
The big hole in my CV was a lack of media experience. Get some articles published and you might have a better chance they said. It was the same story with another exciting job about 2 months ago.
I have enjoyed political blogging, but there is something about getting your work past an editor that gives you an edge over self published opinion, however incisive or relevant. Before I blogged, I had things published, and if I had not been putting my spare writing time into my blogs I would probably have several more pieces out there.
Possibly, I would have landed one of these jobs.
Legal Journo and Political Advisor, respectively, in case you're curious.
So I'm going to make a renewed effort to get published, and end my poliblogging for the time being. I will keep visiting my favourite blogs via my feedreader and comment sometimes. I may even do some more personal blogging, from time to time, somewhere out there.
Wish me luck, because I am about to chase a few dreams.
And stay in touch, and drink with me when you pass through sunny Melba.
Au Revoir Armagnac'd.
UPDATE: Better balance struck, see the next post up!
