For five years I’ve worked as a local blogger turned hack, covering local politics and news in Ipswich and the local area. Having worked hard to help build a hyperlocal news website, I’m leaving to pursue new ideas. I wish my former colleagues all the luck in the world, and I am sure they will still produce top quality local news.
As for me, I am going back to writing – something that I was becoming increasingly isolated from. I will be covering local, regional, national and even international news and politics. Free from the straitjacket of commercial business, I hope to bring my unique style to areas that I was unable to consider when writing just about my local town.
If you don’t like what I write, well nobody is forcing you to read it. If you want to contribute to the debate, use the comments.
