Reality Ravings News – I Now Have Intern – Welcome Anthony Trung Mai

Who said people should watch what they say in the social media as it can cost you a job? The exact opposite occurred when I was on the look out for an intern….

I realised that I was not getting as many blog posts up as I would like and missing some crucial reality TV news so it was time to discard my inner control freak and step into the world of interns.

Also it will allow me to put more energy to increase resources to keep Reality Ravings ticking over.

And lucky for me I met nine months ago on Twitter. One of the great things about the online world is you get to connect with people you would not normally meet in real life.

Let me introduce him –  his name is Anthony Trung Mai and he is a communications student with a wicked sense of humour.  For months we have been chatting and joking and when I came to the realisation that I needed an intern he was the first person I thought of.  Lucky for me he agreed. And once I met him I couldn’t believe my luck at how lovely, articulate and intelligent he was. Also he comes with some great ideas and one of his roles to push me out of my comfort zone as I do not like change, and also he can give me a Gen Y perspective.

And he has auditioned for Australian Idol when it was on – so hoping for a blog post on that experience!

So please make him feel welcome we are seriously lucky to have him this will mean more blog posts and more reality TV news.

You can follow him on Twitter at @AM_092

Welcome Anthony! I look forward to your blog posts. Great idea getting an intern RR. Even with our reality TV bestie, Foxtel IQ, I don’t know how you managed to blog about all those shows!

Andrea – sorry you have not felt welcome and please enjoy yourself here.

17 Andrea { 02.15.12 at 6:35 pm }

This is the first blog I have been on and I love it! I was meaning people in my life, family and friends who say get a life, not other bloggers who understand it all and have fun with it.

18 smauge { 02.15.12 at 6:57 pm }

Well welcome to you too Andrea! I look forward to your contributions too.
