I don’t talk about it as much on this blog/story/radio thing I have going on here, but everyone that knows me knows that I am pretty much obsessed with everything Japanese.
The language, the culture, the media, the music, and the celebrities. Anything you name, as long as it’s Japanese, even if I am not obsessed with it I’ll have some basic/rudimentary knowledge on the topic.
I could go on about how this obsession came to be and how long I’ve had it but this post isn’t about that, it’s about how I’ve become a little volunteer writer for JROCK NEWS.
So I love rock music, I personally think the heavier the better but then again I also like the more softer country vibes or nu-metal stuff (honestly it depends on my mood).
I ventured into JROCK, Japanese rock music when I was 14, so it’s been four years now. I won’t say I’m the most knowledgeable on the topic but I have many bands I love and music I listen to.
As some of my more faithful readers know I study Journalism and Politics at undergraduate level (1st year) and I’ve been trying to get more experience in writing. Then I notice that JROCK NEWS, this news website that I’ve been low key religiously following for a while, had an option to join their team.
JROCK NEWS is one of the leading news sites for Japanese alternative music in the West. In one of my earlier posts I showed the article I used in my application, there were other things as well that I had to write about to apply, but I’m not going to get into that. Long story short I became a writer for the website.
I am super happy right now. I have so much free time now because of the University strikes that I mentioned in an earlier post. So I started writing for them and now two of my articles are up on their site.
I’m still a beginner and I’m trying to improve, I had to do a lot of revisions on these articles 😫but I’m doing my best. I can feel myself getting better.
So check out my articles on their site and tell me what you think!!!! It would mean the world to me 😃
