Let the blogging begin…

 

This is Writehandmedia’s first blog.  Over the next few months I’ll be writing about the things that interest me and that I hope will interest you too.

My interests are wide-ranging, for example, I love rugby having played for both Saracens and Wasps and, without wishing to blow my own trumpet, for England too.  (You really do get a cap by the way, and it’s very cute.)  Given that the World Cup’s upon us, I must also confess to having a passing interest in football as well.

I’m fascinated by the Labour party leadership race and the fuss surrounding Diane Abbott’s nomination.  Whatever your thoughts, she is now a contender and the next few weeks will be very interesting for those who care about the future of the Labour Party and even for those who don’t.

But the most important reason for this blog is to talk about my work as a writer.  I make a living through writing copy on a range of subjects: speeches, features, web content, funding bids, business reports, the list goes on.  I contribute the occasional book chapter depending on the subject, I proofread and copyedit and I read books voraciously.  I love the written word and over the months and years ahead, I’ll be using this blog to hopefully stimulate some thoughtful discussion about what makes good copy.

Finally, if anyone has an iPad that they’re not using, Writehandmedia would love to have one!

    Mmm…hear what you are saying about Ms Abbot and recognise she has been a pioneer in British polictics for my gender and race, however, I some time feel she opens up her big month without much consideration.

    I tend to side with those who find her a little hyprocritical in particular for sending her son to private school.

    She has campaigned ‘to promote positive images for young black people’.

    How disappointing that she couldn’t prove to everyone that she could send her child through the state system to be educated and still produce a star. I have no doubt she would have made sure he performed to the highest standard as ‘west indian mothers’ do.

    I think it’s a load of rubbish when people, like her claim in order to save their children from street gangs and ending up on the wrong side of the law they have to revert to private education.

    Yes I agree there are outside influences that may distract your child from achieving to their full potential, however, school has a small amount of influence on a childs performance. A childs achievements is as much to do with social up bringing and basically what values you, as a parent, instill at an early age accounts for more.

    I have lived in Brixton all my life my parents tried their best with myself and my siblings. We manage to survive the influences around us and pray my daughter will too.

    I don’t know if my parents had money and we were able to go to private school would we have been even greater achievers?

    Regardless you’re just a sell out in the end Ms Abbot!
