A tearful goodbye.
Today marks my 5th and final day in the blogpaper office. Not eventful but i've had positive feedback on all my doings within the company, a guaranteed reference and thats good enough for me.
My time here has led to some insightful knowledge on the publication industry and some of the lengths required to get a fledgling company up and running. I've had to think about demographics, innovative publicity strategies and a hint at the headaches involved with attracting investors.
My last parting gift (as i like to think) was a genuine request by Karl and Anton (the founders) to give critical feedback on their imminent presentation for UK investors. I felt that a 'Britons got talent' buzzer would of added a nice style to my critique, which all in all was very sparse as they seemed to know what they were talking about. Company projections and long term goals make feel slightly insecure about my future, (post degree), what do I want to do, who with, and where are all questions floating around my head.
Although I've enjoyed the viral side of my intern duties, (I think it's my witty quips and comments on Facebook and the blogpaper articles), and the recent election has created an abundance of topical issues to squark about on twitter and alike. I think that for myself personally I would like to point my future career a little closer to the creative side of a publication, i.e shoot production or editorial aspects, seeing as I am a photographer. I still love to organize and write lists so with any luck I do that in my spare time.
But for now, I thank the blogpaper, Anton, Karl, Felix, for their help and for providing this opportunity for me. And if you are reading this as an impartial party sign up, start writing and you could get published.
