I can only apologise to you guys for the length of time between this blog post and my last. I have had a very busy few weeks to say the least, but it’s all for a very exciting reason so I hope you aren’t too mad at me! The photo above gives it away just a little…I am very, very happy to say that I am now officially a TV presenter!
For those of you who are recently followers of my blog, let me give you a little background. Three years ago I graduated from university after studying Broadcast Journalism, and for longer than I can remember TV presenting has been my goal. At this point let me just say – it’s not going to change anything else I do. I am still working with Simple (and loving it as much as ever!) and I am of course going to be making all of my YouTube videos as normal too. I’m just lucky enough now that I get to start living my TV presenter dream alongside all of my other work, which makes me a very happy bunny indeed!
The station is That’s Manchester, and it’s available to watch in and around the Manchester area on freeview channel 8. I have been presenting my show (oh yes…I have my own talk show! *pinches self*) for the past couple of weeks and I absolutely love it. My guests are some of Manchester’s top social media personalities – in the photo above I was joined for the day by fellow bloggers Lima and Heather, and we had a ball!
Back in 2012, I published a post on my blog about reaching your dreams, and never giving up. I remember writing that post so vividly…I just read it back, and experienced the strangest feeling. I’ve got my feet on the path I’ve wanted to be on for so long, and it has taken a whole lot of hard work, patience and sheer determination, but I’m doing it. Crikey. I’m doing it.
I’m going to be posting lots more about my daily antics on Instagram, so be sure to follow me on there. I can’t wait to take you guys on this journey with me!
