Pop Reviews Now is alive because of my love for writing, it's alive because I want to change the pop music industry and shift the focus back to the actual music. Last year was a brilliant year for me, I know I keep on saying it but it's true. Little did I know that this year, bigger things would be happening to me and this tiny little blog.
My year started with PRN being linked to Babelpop and me writing for OMGKPOP. I got hired as a Global Moderator for The Kpop Nation, got promoted to Administrator/News Editor. That's what happened to be in January - PRN, Babelpop, OMGKPOP and The Kpop Nation.
It's February 5 and this morning I got an e-mail that I personally think will turn my whole year around for the best - I'm being offered a writing position at Virgin.com's music section. That's like, THE BIGGEST THING EVER. Like, it's not just some website put up by fans - THIS IS VIRGIN.COM FOR CRAP'S SAKE. That's like writing for DMG or PopJustice only without the stuff that make those blogs them.
OK. I'm still overwhelmed, forgive me if I said something strange. ANYWAY. I took a day to think about it and after talking to 5 people whose opinions MATTER for me, I took the job.
YES, I am now a contributing writer for virgin.com/music/top-music-blogs. My first article should be up sometime this weekend.
