So, in completely crazy town news, I was recently interviewed for a television segment about blogging!

It was my first time on screen (actually it was my first time in any kind of face-to-face interview) so I was super nervous. Thankfully the Today Tonight (local current affairs show) reporter and her film crew were really nice.

The interview went for quite a while but they only used a tiny snippet. Unfortunately I don’t feel it really captured what I wanted to say (which was that it’s a lot of hard work but it’s so rewarding connecting with readers). But of course they had their own angle – that we apparently make squillions of dollars, when in reality the vast majority (myself included) are simply covering costs or making a bit of pocket money.

That said, it was a nice positive piece and I’m happy with it overall.

I went a bit nuts tidying the house because I wasn’t sure what they were going to film. I picked up some fresh flowers from Lotus which came in handy (I actually took the above photo while the dude was filming me).

If you like, you can watch the segment here.
