New start, new beginning

After 14 months, a lot of articles and a lot of learning, I’m leaving paidContent:UK at the end of the year to find new opportunities. Jon wrote about it here.

I’ll be working as a freelance and will look to carry on writing about the digital landscape both in print and online, but I’m also looking for opportunities in events, social media & PR. I’m also in the very early stages of planning my own online venture, which I hope to speak more about soon.

It’s been a great year working with some of the best journalists – in fact, the best – covering digital media today and it’s been hugely satisfying seeing PCUK grow in popularity and stature, while also working on the main paidContent.org site. I have no doubts ContentNext will continue to be a success next year and beyond and I can only thank them for giving me the chance to be involved.

Anyone interested in talking about commissions, business ideas, speaking/panel gigs or pints in pubs please drop me a line on Twitter or on patricksmithjournalist at gmail dot com.

paidContent:UK is hiring for another reporter, so if you’re interested, drop the guys a line.

p.s. This isn’t the longest gap between blog posts ever, though it might be close…
