Back to Start

After some diligent prodding by one of my mentors, I am back on the blogosphere. This time, with more purpose and drive. After all, I am no longer constricted to writing for a grade. The only purpose here is learning.

I began this blog earlier in the year for my Interactive Media class simply as part of the graduation requirement for my Telecommunication degree. 6 months ago, all that was on my mind was getting out of college and entering the real world.

Well, I graduated alright. I was then faced with the daunting question: Now what?  Silence is always deafening.

The basic principles of broadcast journalism, my prior field of study, are being redrafted as we enter a world of media convergence. ¬†As such, I’m no longer looking for the typical TV reporter job. ¬†Those jobs are still there but I’m looking ahead to where media might be 5, 10 years from now. 6:30 evening news? Not quite.

So essentially, real life is presenting me with a whole new sort of education. Equipped with a forward-thinking approach, entrepreneurial zest, along with a necessary dose of humility, I’m preparing myself. There is SO much to learn.

I head to New York tomorrow. ¬†My goal: learn social. ¬†I’ve always loved good conversation so I kid you not when I tell you the next up and coming thing are conversation agencies! ¬†They help brands listen, engage, and understand conversations in social media. ¬†I’m not a huge expert in the social realm, but I’m out to learn. ¬†Or at least, have a good conversation about it.
