“New Journalist” or just incompetent?
So how’d the interview go? many of you are no doubt wondering. Let’s just say I’d never make a living as a serious journalist. Make no mistake, I prepared my question list, had my themes all worked out…and my whole elegant plan fell apart in the first fifteen seconds. Why? I succumbed to the urge to simply gab. Over the course of the interview — which lasted about two hours — we covered just about every topic under the sun other than baking. I’m going to do my best to organize all the tape into meaningful dialogue, and will be putting it up in sections. Whether this approach will turn out to be “taking full advantage of the blogging medium” or just a mess, I really don’t know. Let’s hope for the best.
