For the last three years, July 14th has coincided with landmarks in my life. In 2010, I saw the supergroup Tired Pony play their debut show in London with my Mum. It was the first time either of us had ever travelled to see a band and it opened up a whole new world of gig-going. This time last year we saw Bruce Springsteen play Hyde Park.
In between those adventures, I joined Buzznet. On July 14th 2011, I was inspired by 'The Summer Of Buzz' contest (which I later won) to sign up and start writing - and I haven’t looked back since.
Buzznet has not only given me the platform to interview some great artists, which is something I could have only dreamed of when I began, but it's also allowed me to make friends worldwide and even meet some in real life.
Today, I'm starting another chapter in my life; I'm buying myself a domain name. It may sound like something small, but I've got big plans.
July 14th will always be special to me because I will make it so. The best advice I’ve ever received is to make my own luck; so if you have an idea or a dream, go for it! And if that dream is becoming a Buzzmaker then I welcome any rivals (kidding, we'll be friends).
I just wanted to say thank you for all comments, buzzes and support. I’m looking forward to my third year of blogging. Here’s to many more “Pinch me” moments!
When did you join Buzznet?
