The first post!

Ever since I was in 5th grade, I've had an interest in journalism. I first published a work called "The Hannah News" -- I know, creative! Anyway, It had articles about people in my family who believed in aliens, poems that my little cousins had written, a story about extremely good intuition on the part of a family member. Nothing special, but definately a good start as a 10 year old. I made about 4 or 5 issues and even started charging for a subscription to my mini- newspaper/magazine! Eventually I ran out of things to write about, because quite honestly I was to lazy to actually do any real research, and too young to understand most of the interesting things happening around me anyway.

Now, as a high school student, I'm taking the first step in making "The Hannah News" come back to life. My new magazine/newspaper will most likely to called "Bubbles", the reason for which I will discuss soon. I know that my writing won't be perfect, and to be realistic, it isn't likely that I will keep it up for a long time, but I'm going to try and write articles about whatever interests me at the time, normally about things like books, movies, technology, and my personal opinion on what's happening in the world. I'll probably sound naive to some, but I'm hoping that this blog will help me become a better writer, and help me be more comprehending about, well, everything.

And, the reason I named it "Bubbles" is that my favorite author, Scott Westerfeld, just published a guide book on my favorite series, Uglies, called "Bogus to Bubbly". His blog is great for me to read! He posts a lot, and always about things that I find relevant, so "Bubbles" seemed appropriate.

Keep reading everyone, I'll post more as soon as I can!
