Assignment 10 :troubles
I have just gone through assignment 10 and realise i don’t really want to create a media kit right now. For various reasons I havn’t been able to travel as much as i’ve liked : dammed English teaching, laziness, football etc. but i plan to remedy this as soon as possible.
I have returned to the course after a fair few months away concentrating on my blog http://www.footballintheclouds.wordpress.org.
Although it is not strictly a travel blog it is about myself and my visits to football stadium in Ecuador as a Scotsman. My blog is receiving 200-300 hits a day and my stories/articles have been picked up by a few sites in the UK and Europe but alas for no money.
At present I am quite happy writing away to my followers and random readers picked up on Stumbleupon, Digg, social media and the websites I write for.
I have learned a lot doing this course and i plan to go back over some of the modules and invest a bit more time in the future. I have just completed a better blogging course with CTJT in London and together with the Matador course I should be able to improve many parts of my admittedly, rough blog.
To be honest I not too sure if I want to be a travel writer/blogger. I would rather just write stories/experiences as i come across them on my travels. I have had the chance to read a lot of my fellow students blogs and while they are all well written and good i am not too sure that they are in my same field of interest.
I can’t see myself as a full-time travel writer but more a travelling Sports/football journalist (which i have been completing many courses for) however I can see where i can parts of the course to benefit this career.
I am going to complete the course then go over it again to see where i can reuse particular modules. The WordPress specialist module has been useful too.
We’re no longer accepting new assignments until MatadorU V2 is launched this week, and then you can submit directly through the new Dashboard. Deets here:
