Blogging Yields Fruit (Like An Internship)

Remember why students should blog? Well I’m happy to announce that the third internship worked out and I start on Wednesday. Exact details won’t be posted because of confidentiality issues, but suffice to say it’s social media related.

To me the biggest value is to be thrown into the “real world” and see if the stuff I’ve been blogging about makes sense, or am I living in this dream from the outside looking in. Could be a harsh slap of reality, but better now than later.

The downside is that it’s only six weeks (because I’ve committed the whole of July and half of August to my previous employer, MTV to work on the MTV Asia Awards held in Malaysia. That is going to be a blast!

However, rest assured the blogging here will not be changed in anyway. I definitely won’t be blogging about work unless given express permission, and if I do, it will be fully disclosed. I might end up blogging less than normal because of work hours, but that’s what RSS is for! (Don’t know how to subscribe, here’s my handy guide).

Finally, I want to thank everyone who’s been reading, commenting or interacting with this blog in any way. This could be the best blog in the world (it’s not), but if no one was reading it, it would be useful. So thanks for supporting me by reading, talking to someone else about me, attending Social Media Breakfast: Singapore. It’s because of you that I landed this internship. So let me end this post with: thank you for reading

    Congrats, Daryl. Haha. Blogging has paid off in a lot of ways for me as well – the virtual internship with Seth Godin, the chance to be part of AoC 2008, etc. It’s awesome how many opportunities blogging can bring about, isn’t it? =).

    And when you start working, even in social media, you might not find the time to blog.

    Welcome to the real world!

    *please reject my previous comment.. have spelling error…*

    lol, I’m jobless and I’m finding myself having problems to blog regularly.. I think you won’t have much time since you’re working le.

  10. Daryl Tay Says:

    @Mediaslut and Jester: Haha I think I’ll definitely have time to blog, but maybe every other day instead of everyday. After all, I managed from January until April with 10-12hr days in school 😉
