Welcome to my Blog site.
I’ve worked as a journalist, and TV newsreader for many years, and now amid the fast-changing media landscape, I’ve become a Blogger and these days, also very much focusing on performing and writing music.
In the last decade, I also started another new career path – in RADIO – joining the smoothfm More Music Breakfast Show with Mike Perso. I had a wonderful nine years – reading news updates and chatting with Mike about what was going on in Melbourne AND in our lives. But I decided to leave SMOOTH at the end of last year – for a myriad of reasons which I’ll write about soon in an upcoming Blog!
It’s hard to believe, but I began this Blog back in 2012. I’ve taken a bit of a break from writing in the last twelve months, but now feel it’s time to start telling stories once more. I think another upcoming story will be about WHY I needed some time-out from writing.
Now it’s time to get back in the saddle – so to speak – in my trusty worn white leather chair in my office. Of course, the wonderful thing about writing a Blog is that you can talk about anything you like because you are your own boss. Nothing like the independence of being a Free Spirit! As well, I can write in any time-frame I choose and not feel the pressure of deadlines.
Some say Bloggers should stick to a particular theme. Coming from a general news background, I prefer to call my Blog a ‘magazine-style’ website – covering a range of topics. My interests are varied and I don’t like being restricted by focusing on one area of life.
I love telling stories and I love helping people. I also love writing about issues and products that interest and inspire me, that I hope will interest and inspire you too. Everyone has a story to tell. So even if I am talking about a product, I hope I can find a story within to bring some humanity and meaning to the subject.
If I’m talking about my family, I refer to my husband (whom some of you may know as Dr Karl Kennedy from Neighbours) as Fletch, and our children are Veronica (Ronnie) and Tom. And yes, I’m supposed to check with them first before blogging about anything that concerns them… (supposed being the operative word)
My views and opinions will of course be entirely my own. I also look forward to reading your comments and feedback.
Thanks for joining me on my continuing venture into the Blogosphere.
