About me

MY name is unimportant. I am in my 30s, I am divorced, and for the past decade I have been a national newspaper reporter.

I've worked in most places in Fleet Street as both staff and freelance - news agencies, broadsheets, tabloids, daily and Sunday papers. So far I have never been successfully sued, although many have tried.

I love this industry and my job, because it's full of fascinating people and I get to travel the world on someone else's dime. But it's also hard, it's not that well-paid, and a lot of people hate you before you even open your mouth. The fun bit happens when - and if - they change their minds.

This blog is a way for me to tell the truth about my trade, as much as I know of it.

And on Fridays you can read my stuff at the Daily Mirror Online.
