Having worked with several bloggers living in Hull, I am now in contact with many of them. From this, they have got in touch about my going along to their meeting for me to write a story about.
I was very happy about this, as they are keeping me in mind when they have anything that would be worth writing about rather than me getting in touch with them.
From the bloggers I have also found several other stories that I have put forward, one such being the feature I have written about being Merryhide.
I am now putting forward several ideas on a regular basis that could possibly featured in both Femail and The Journal. I feel like I am contributing a lot, and it shows I am interested in both finding and writing stories myself. It also shows that I am using my initiative, instead of just being told what to do.
Suggesting ideas also means I get the chance to write about things that I am interested in, gaining experience in the areas I would like to write about in the future.
