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).
