Blabbing on about journalism, writing for free and, er, Britney Spears

The other week, designer/developer Jamie Rumbelow interviewed me for his podcast. It’s online now, and provides a startling insight into just how many times a Scotsman can say “um” during an interview. I was on to talk about journalism – how to get into online journalism, what scams to watch out for, why books don’t usually make money and how to motivate yourself to write when the creative juices aren’t flowing. So it’s basically me blabbing on about bugger-all through a heavy head cold.
