Although my name never appeared on the leaked Ashley Madison files, I still have a confession to make: I have been cheating on you, dear Bar Zine reader.
Sure, I’ve been writing detailed wine reviews and covering contemporary artists such as Billy Joel for your delectation, but on the side I have been writing and editing about … well, writing and editing on my other site, Media Survival.
And it’s time to come clean.
You see, although people think I just drink, read and listen to Billy Joel all day, I actually make a living teaching writing workshops and providing editing services.
For some reason, I actually enjoy this – which is odd, since I have always detested every other form of work.
Most of my workshops are taught in-house for organisations, although I do have a writing for the web course in October that anyone can join (to atone for my sins, I’ll even offer Bar Zine readers a 20% discount – just go to my Eventbrite page and enter “barzine” as the promotional code).
So it was just a matter of time before I started cheating on Bar Zine by starting a blog about writing, editing, typography and usability – all of which excite me as much as a free bottle of booze.
And that’s saying something.
As for those who aren’t into words like I am: never fear, for I will still continue Bar Zine in its current haphazard form, meaning you will never know if or when another article will come out or what on earth it will be about (I call this dubious artform “blogging roulette”).
You have been warned.
