Kynren Blog – Media Day (Part 1)

IMG_9279

On Saturday 25th March, I took part in my own Media Day as a way to promote my Kynren Blog in anticipation of the UK Blog Awards held on Friday 21st April in Westminster, London.

As a nominated finalist it was always my only intention to try and promote the Kynren project to a wider audience and promote the shows.

Earlier in the week I contacted local radio station Bishop FM to ask if they would be interested in doing an interview, I was surprised and delighted to hear that they would be, and they invited me in for a live interview segment on their Saturday morning breakfast show with Gary Burgham, as pictured below.

On the morning of the broadcast I was feeling quite relaxed, despite never being interviewed live on air before.

I took it as a good opportunity to talk to the many listeners about Kynren and how this project has had a positive impact on my life.

Although once the interview started, I must admit it was quite daunting, hoping I wouldn’t pause too much and struggle to get my words out.

I have also prearranged with Gary that I will look to do a follow up interview after the awards ceremony, to inform his listeners of how the awards went on the evening.

Hopefully bringing back to Bishop Auckland the converted title of Individual Events & Weddings Blog of the Year.

Here’s hoping anyway.
