Creative Jewelling & Life

Journalism can be many things. Sometimes we can read articles, as were they found in the air of something not existing, which then lead us to think, why at all write an article, if nothing is true anyway.

There are good journalism too, the one that call for us to read all the article and not just some of it. Some have this ability to be able to catch us, just like a great author. They write what they think may be the truth and nothing else…

Years ago I worked with journalism, while I published first newspapers and since magazines, I found out how easy it was to be an honest writer and how unpopular I could be, if I was too honest, while I wrote reviews for books, restaurants etc.

I had the minding that I denied to write at all, if I did not like what I should write about. It could be a book, where the publisher send me a box with different books, as they would like me to write reviews about. Or a restaurant who wanted me to write they were the best, which I denied to do, unless they really did create great food.

Journalism can be a great way to keep track at our lives too, we can create our own kind of journal with goals, dreams and hope for our lives. To write what we dream about is also a great way to kickstart the mind about going for our dreams.

Do you go for your dreams?

  1. Irene, I completely go with my dream of having a family business doing what I love most, writing about the things I teach and intend to teach, writing about our island home, both journaling and keeping track of life, but also to highlight the many wonders that might attract one here.
    It is lovely to see this side of you and to discover more of your personality. Very nice post!

    • Thank you Melissa for your kind comment 😀
      I find it important to go for our dreams and we will not have much to regret later in life. Wonderful to read that you really go for your dream. In this way you also show your kids, that all is possible, if you really wish too 😉

  2. I am learning to go for my dreams. I understand that writing with frankness and honesty can make one unpopular, especially when giving reviews. Opinions though are highly subjective.

    • Thank you for your comment 😉
      I prefer honesty, but instead of writing my negative review, I found it better to contact the publisher and tell them why I would not give my review. Opinions are subjective and why destroy the writers big work, just to write bad?

  3. I think Irene that is what we as a society have slipped so easily into doing… Telling people what they want to hear instead of telling the Truth..
    The whole world is now built on untruths as we skim over the nitty-gritty .. And Society allows it for its now blind to the lies which often stems from bad journalism to sensationalise stories..
    We here in the UK are still investigating phone tapping by journalists to who invaded peoples privacy to get that scoop ..

    They are the one’s who give good journalism a bad name..
    Good for your for sticking to your principles

    Hugs Sue

  4. I really don’t like reading a news story or article or watching a news story and not being convinced. I know we can be too truthful, but I would rather have truth than half-truths and lies. People aren’t authentic and it drives me crazy.
    Great post here.

    • Thank you. There are many people who prefer to hear what they wish to hear and not mind so much in the truth, just look at the politicians up to elections, how much they talk and promise for the future, if you vote at them…..
      They say what many wish to hear, but how much come true after their winning?
      Thank you for your visit and comment 😉

  5. I would always wish to hear the truth over what I preferred to hear, so I admire your integrity in not choosing to write what people wanted you to.
