I have decided to set up a post-university blog to try and find my place on the internet. I aim to incorporate my journalism skills that I have learned and use them to talk about all the things I have a buzz around. I will try to include as much multimedia in my posts as well.
This blog constitutes mainly of pop culture areas such as video games, anime, movies, music and whatever else I find entertainment (or not) in and feel it should be written about.
Want to know a little about me?
1. I am Travis Ward, 22 and from Sheffield.
2. I am a video game collector and collect for all console post-NES (Nintendo Entertainment System)
3. I am a musician and play guitar and bass. I try to dabble with other instruments, but the best I’ve gotten at is with ukulele. I might post any relevant music work I have on YouTube on this page.
4. I finished my three year degree in BA Journalism Studies at Russell Group: University of Sheffield in July 2016.
5. I work at HMV and are still pursuing work in journalism (It’s bloody hard in South Yorkshire). Because of this I have set up my blog to continue my journalism.
6. I love music and listen to a vast mixture from classical to emo to indie to experimental rock.
7. I am a big video game fanatic and hope to be a professional video game journalist.
