Today has been a strange day, I actually had a media person request that I stop blogging or retract my ideas and opinions. Basically it was voiced that if I had not put it out there , it could have been kept quiet. Does writing a blog create attention or is the attention already there, I just put it into words. Does a blog give the power of opinions, legs for stories. This is what has taken up my thoughts today. Oh well, the power of the pen or here the power of the typed word.
Once a digging journalist always a journalist. I was taught from the best "editor Mr. Jimmy Hatten", he always said write it like you see it. Make sure you have the facts. check out the sources, get three quotes, then let it write itself. And most important write from your heart and mean what you say!
I have had the good blessings to work with interns within the three Universities. Those interns have done so well after finding their passion. I hope I instill just a little of what he taught me.
I guess what I am saying is the blog will go on. I am sorry I have ruffled feathers. I enjoy the written word but most of all I enjoy getting the info out there.
No one can ever say that blogging does not cause attention. The phone call today proved that. I will decide what I say and will only put out there what I believe!
let the good times roll , and here some of the not so good times.
