As most of you know this blog started simply as a project for my Online Journalism class, which I only decided to take two weeks before classes started. I can honestly say this has been the most beneficial and fun class I have ever taken in my college career. I feel as though I have learned so much not only about Journalism but myself. It’s funny to me that I began this class getting ready to take the LSAT and was narrowing my choices for Law School. Now I’m busy applying to Multi-Media post-graduate programs abroad and applying for jobs in PR and the News in New York City (have to keep my options open).
This journey has been the thrill of my lifetime. I am supposed to write a farewell post but I can tell you all, happily, that this will not be goodbye. This blog has become my baby and I am so proud of the work we have accomplished together. Online Journalism has come to an end but this blog will be updated as regularly as possible. I am going to do my absolute best to come up with new and exciting things for you.
The success of this blog would not be possible if it was not for my readers. I cannot thank you all enough. You came back every week to see what I had to say and it means more to me than you can ever imagine. If you know me at all I love to write but never feel as if anything is ever publish ready and this class forced me to put my thoughts out there. The response from everyone was astronomical and without it I probably would not be pursuing the news industry in such a big city (New York or London). You all kept me on my toes and pushing myself to come up with something interesting and well-written for you.
I need to stop and thank my best friends for being so supportive this entire time. They have listened to me complain about assignments and how I had no idea what to do, they were forced to come to the bars with me, and they were certainly ready to shoot me due to my incessant discussion about this blog (it’s all I ever talk about). You all know who you are and I cannot thank you guys enough. Love you babes.
Thanks for sticking through this emotionally charged and long post. Until next week….
