I’ve been blogging away in my corner of the internet for a couple of years now, inspired by my sister, About Time (you never forget your first) and going back to university. There are a couple of reasons why I do it. Originally it was to practise my craft (that didn’t really work out) but mostly because I just wanted to. I wanted to write a review of About Time, I wanted to write about Craig Ferguson and David Letterman leaving late night television and it was fun when I did. Then I started getting followers and I started following them and I enjoyed their writing and at some point blogging gave me a community that I enjoyed being a part of.
I get to read the work of better writers, travel to Beetley England, Toronto, Adelaide, California, New Zealand, Chicago and of course Arizona. I found out about films I’ve never heard of, stories I never knew and get challenged to see things from a new perspective as much as delight in my own opinions being shared. It is a tremendous joy you’ve given me and one part of it is – you’ve given me an audience. One undaunted by the requirements of family obligations or friendship. You read my work because it interested you and so I apologise for this minor inconvenience. With the confidence you gave me I’ve had a few attempts at trying to get published elsewhere and now I found myself in the awkward situation of not being able to publish a review I wrote on my blog because it did get published elsewhere on the internet. Many of you may find my excitement at this, quaint and adorable. You’re published authors, magazine writers, television producers and reviewers on Amazon but this is a thrill for me.
So if you want me to read my review of Hidden Figures I kindly ask you check out this link http://scenestr.com.au/news/movies-and-tv/hidden-figures-review-20170223
Produced by Eyeball Media Enterprises Scenestr. is the online national magazine with local offices around Australia. With over twenty years of publishing history they’ve excelled at moving into the digital realm but they remain at heart from the streets. They also publish Scene magazine in print every month focussed mostly on music gigs, festivals, stand-up comics, fashion and interviews with local and international bands. If you’re into music they’re a great read but they do cover all of the arts and fortunately for me they also feature the occasional film review online too. I’m very grateful they thought my review was “very good” and published it. I’m also very grateful for my blogging community. Well with all this gratitude I should probably stop writing before I make a fool of myself. This post is now as long as the review itself.
I just wanted to say thank you.
