I have been writing blog since December, 2010. I learned creating and using blog from
“WeBlog” project held by Ireli Public Union. Creating and writing for the blog, I justthought about sharing my knowledge and my point of view on various issues, as well as some of my translations with different people. As I have a different profession, I didn’t intend to become a journalist. However, day by day I began learning about blogging instantly, using social media equipments
which I owe to “Podblog” Podcasting project held by Netizen New Media organization, revealing what’s inside myself, revealing what I think about every-day events. All these made me keeping more in touch with social events, reading more and writing constantly. I liked it to see how my site stats grow, how there are more likes and comments. That meant, there are people who read my blog, there are people who like my writings. What a great motivation these LIKEs give!
And on a one nice day , I saw an announcement for a social correspondent on Women’s forum site. I read the requirements and thought, “Yes, this is for me. I have to try my hand on this.” Here I would write about women’s problems, here I would highlight social problems that I’m worried about. Here I can reveal what I think, how I feel to more readers. And at last here I would learn, practise and improve my skills as a social correspondent more. As I have always thought, “a success is 1 drop of talent and 99 drops of sweat.” If I have this 1 drop, why not to shed 99 drops? That was how I applied for the position of a social correcpondent.
Now I’m in the training held by Women’s forum and writing this article. I was not mistaken. After interview, they called me telling that I meet their requirements and I’ll begin writing for them after our two days’ training on blogging and journalism. I was very happy being one of 6 bloggers who won this competition. I’m at the beginning of the way now. I will do my best to be useful for women, for society. And it will be my pleasure to improve as a journalist.
I wish good luck to all the participants of the project and thank to our mentors and trainers Bailey and Aaron very much.
