PeaceOwl and more

September 9, 2010

Holy molars. I can’t believe I haven’t updated since May. Wow. That’s quite impressive. I didn’t do a huge amount of writing over the summer because I was busy working full-time and hanging out with friends, but I have a few articles and a project that I can show off here today. 🙂

The main project I finished this summer was the peace-lovin’ 1960s history-learnin’ blog, PeaceOwl. It was debuted on August 15th, the 41st anniversary of Woodstock. Includes book and movie reviews, photos from now and the past, green news, interviews (coming soon!) and more. You can get updates about PeaceOwl by following @_PeaceOwl_ on Twitter. If you’re interested in helping out with the blog, email me at peaceowl@live.ca with your name and blog post idea.

I also have another article published at TalentEgg: LAUNCH: A Student Survival Guide to Summer Concerts and Festivals.

I also reunited with the myUsearch blog (my old stomping ground) to do a two-part series on packing for college:

And yesterday, I started the Interactive Multimedia program at Holland College in Charlottetown, the same school I graduated from in May. I look forward to developing my craft and combining it with my writing skills and seeing where it takes me.

An update!

May 2, 2010

Well, I’m officially finished Journalism at Holland College. Two internships completed successfully. Graduation is slated for May 21st.

I made an update to my résumé on this blog, as I’m now working for Apple as a technical support advisor. I’m in training for three weeks before I get to don the headset.

A bunch more of my articles and reviews have been published at TalentEgg‘s LAUNCH. Choose from any of the links below to check them out.

Two travel articles!

March 31, 2010

I’ve recently been trying my hand at travel writing – all the while staying stationary. Here are excerpts from two travel articles, recently published on other sites.

A Girl’s Travel Guide to Charlottetown

  • Charlottetown is the capital city of Prince Edward Island, Canada’s smallest province. Nestled into Canada’s rugged east coast, PEI is a lush, green island, best known for being the home of Canada’s Confederation, gorgeous red sand beaches, rolling potato fields, and Anne of Green Gables… (Continue reading.)

10 UK Hostels That Are Far From “Hostile”

  • I’m desperate to take a jaunt over to the UK for a couple months after I graduate from college next year. When I started my travel planning, I quickly realized staying in hotels would simply not be an option for me, as my wallet would be stretched to the limit anyway… (Continue reading.)

J-H.com redesign

March 17, 2010

As the title says, I’ve redesigned Jillianne-Hamilton.com. I like it. It’s both pretty, practical, simple and displays my various websites and blogs to my liking. Feel free to shower me with compliments.

I’ve also started a travel blog called Jaunt. The following links are my posts there, so far.

I also have a new post at TalentEgg LAUNCH: How to Rock a Tattoo in the Workplace

I’ve got two more blog posts published at LAUNCH.

Two more at TalentEgg!

March 1, 2010

This new gig at TalentEgg’s LAUNCH seems to be going quite well. I recently had two new articles published.

I’m especially proud of the second article, as some of my best photos act as visual stimulation for the reader.

I’m currently working on a redesign of J-H.com. I think I’ve come up with a better, more efficient way of showcasing all my different blogs and websites on one screen without the visitor having to search through a bunch of links.

Plus, I’ve been tooling around with a new image editing program, so that’s always fun.

Until next time- tally ho!

My first article with Talent Egg has been published at their lifestyle magazine site, LAUNCH. Click the link below to check it out.

5 Movies That Make Us Believe in Love Again

——————————————————-

I just finished my first week back at Holland College Journalism. My experience at the Sackville Tribune-Post was definitely a good one. Thanks to Scott, Katie, Jane and Susan for making my time there not only tolerable, but even enjoyable. 🙂

It feels weird being back at school. A lot of the 2nd-years float in and out, doing stories here and there but mostly working by their own schedules. Before I know it, I’ll be wearing a cap and gown and getting my diploma- and symbolic red pen.

It’s bizarre, really.
