For those of you who stalk me on Facebook, you know by now that I’ve resigned from my postion as the Assistant News Editor at the Nevada Sagebrush a few hours ago. I don’t want to go into the details because I don’t believe in dwelling on the past, so here’s what I want to do for the future.
- Begin blogging: Because this is my own personal blog, I’m not hindered by any page constraints, word counts or specific topics. I love sports, design, and learning about journalism, and I want to share all everything that I find. I’ll be rolling out some daily and weekly features soon.
- Original Reporting: Even though I no longer work for a newspaper, that doesn’t mean that I can’t produce original content. I have several ideas for long-form, in-depth stories that I can actually take the time to work on, rather than shambling together a few interviews in time for the weekly deadline.
- Working toward the future: I do plan to go back to the Sagebrush next semester, so I’ll need to start finding better ways to tell stories, manage a staff and build relationships with future coworkers.
For now, I want to focus on getting a job, helping make my fraternity excellent, stay active on social media and to not become complacent. It’s a cliche by now, but today’s the first step in a new direction for me. And I’m excited.
