If you are reading this, dear reader, I want to thank you. Thank you for being a faithful reader since 2010, thank you for loving my blog posts and sending me words of encouragement. If you’ve just stumbled upon my blog, then word up, welcome to the end of the beginning of my blog.
Dear readers, no friends, no interweb BFFs, I hereby announce that this is the last Ticketstubbies’ blog post. Short story, I am now a full-time Creative Copywriter and time has become an elusive concept to me. If you miss me even a fraction of how much I am going to miss you, please connect with me on LinkedIn, follow my one-forty scribbles on Twitter or flip through my portfolio at MeWriteGood.
My blog is full of reviews, previews and interviews that can still help you decide on an awesome movie before you head off to the DVD or iTunes store, or which comedian you want to see live as Sydney loves her repeat offenders. Perhaps you’d like to re-read my interviews with some pretty special people like Jack Charles, Tom Gleeson and Kitty Flanagan? Just scroll down to the bottom for categories.
I came, I saw and I saved every ticket stubbie. They will remain safe in my cookie tin box of memories. Ok, so really they are in my OfficeWorks plastic folder, but they are there. So long, farewell, auf wiedersehen and good night Sydney.
Well folks, it’s been a while. A month to be exact. What’s happened to TicketStubbies some of you asked and here’s the low down.
On May 12, 82 jobs were cut from The Sydney Morning Herald and The Age. On May 16, street magazine 3D World said its final goodbye, last publication out next week. I’ve contributed articles to both publications. And somewhere around that time, my role as Arts Listings Editor/Deputy Arts Editor with Alternative Media Group was made redundant. I was given a diminished role as a Features Editor but to be honest, who are we kidding? It is true and has been so for a while. Print is taking its last breath.
It’s not all doom and gloom as the digital world is providing a great space for news and entertainment. And that’s why TicketStubbies isn’t going anywhere =) (Whoo hoo! Cheering and clapping!) Truth is, TicketStubbies’ readership had not faltered even in the last month where I hadn’t added new blog posts. This is a great sign especially since I love delivering my weekly e-newsletters to you. TicketStubbies will keep going as long as I write. I still write for a number of publications, almost all of which are transitioning to the interweb and I will post all my articles online.
The first minor change will be that, I will be sending you dear readers my newsletters monthly at this stage. This means well researched and better entertainment information for you.
The second minor change? The website is now going to be called TicketStubbies (Sydney Arts, Entertainment… and Beyond) from the original Sydney Arts & Entertainment. Yep, I’ve planned a few cheeky surprises =) So, stay tuned and thanks for your support.
