I, like many others, have always dreamed of having the opportunity to have a job which pays to travel. Travel journalism of course is one choice, with a magazine or publishing company such as Lonely Planet, or as a news correspondent - my preferred option. But the world is growing and as technology progresses we are able to take Journalism into our own hands in form of the humble ‘blog’.
I’m not sure my real feelings about blogging… I mean it opens up the realms of so many different ways to speak to an audience without being confined to one particular medium. So I figured it was time to give it a proper go. As such, I have created my own website Bitten by the Travel Bug. The reason why I am creating a blog has come after exploring other blog-styled websites such as Nomadic Matt, Vagabonding, and Gadling.
This site will primarily contain my professional portfolio - articles, videos and audio clips I complete for University, my University newspaper (including, but not limited too, Lot’s Wife) and other pieces I am particularly proud of. Whilst my blog will contain pieces which are specific to travel journalism/travel blogging and frequent updates from both Australia and my travels overseas.
And I am happy for any comments/critiques/suggestions/possibly improvements for my writing on both of my websites!
