I'm not dead! + DJing, and The Selection Show (21/11/13)

Hi there, first and foremost, I'm not dead. I haven't updated this site in seven months and in those seven months I've moved house, twice, got a job permanently and, quite frankly, put freelance journalism on the back burner.

I'm not saying I won't be doing any more articles or listings ever again, not at all. I'm just mentally in a different place than where I was when I put this site together three years ago. But I've been mainly updating this site sparsely because I felt I had to, but it's just not the case. I'll have a passion for writing again in a few months or years, for sure, but not at the moment.

Which brings me to where I am at, at the moment. For the past year I've bee umming and ahhing over the idea of trying to give radio DJing a shot. Now, I'm a very tentative person when it comes to trying new things and work at a very slow pace. I wanted to wet my feet in the water, so to speak, before announcing anything.

I've worked on only my fourth ever show on Thursday and publically announced this on my Facebook and Twitter pages. I did a requests show in which people could request songs for me to play, and messed about a bit. My microphone is terrible at present and I'm still learning the ropes, but the reception of the show has been mixed to positive so far. Thanks for the support. Any feedback and constructive criticism is welcome.

So, any DJing projects I do now, I'll be promoting on this website, and if you want to listen to the show, email me, or contact me on Facebook or Twitter and I'll tell you how you can listen to it.

Please though, bear with me though, I'm not going to turn into some DJing wizard genius overnight. I'm learning how to do things and putting up with a shit microphone, I also know that I blow on the microphone at times but I'm working on it, so don't give me any shit about that okay?! Cool.

So, if you've come here for any new articles, I'm really sorry to disappoint. You're more than welcome to look around and see any of my previous work over the last 10 years but at the moment, I'm moving in a different direction. If you're interested, please support me. I appreciate it. Until next time, take care.
