Hi, I’m Tyneesha! This is my blog. This is going to start out sounding like a horror story. I started putting every thought I had on the internet around the age of 15. Terminally chatty and brimming with unresearched opinions, I thought it best to throw my thoughts to the web rather than continue to subject my friends and family to torment.

Luckily, none of my uninformed teenage musings hold up as particularly controversial pieces, and the only real push back I ever received was from an old troll named Donald who commented homophobic profanities on my piece about the same-sex marriage referendum. Whatever, Donald.

I also just wanted to be a writer when I grew up. This blog, and my long-time dedication to it, has blessed me with an incredible number of opportunities and experiences that have ‌led me down the road I’ll likely stay on for the rest of my life. I’ve gotten in touch with some of my favourite artists via writing about their work. I’ve written single release promotions for local bands, I’ve used this site to lift the creative works of my friends and idols, and honestly, the existence of this blog made up most of the chatter in my university admission interview.

This blog continues to be something my employers view and value, and it gave me a huge leg-up during my communication and media degree. I’ve had the chance to develop content and media skills at my pace.

Throughout lockdowns and times of overwhelming change and disruption, this space has remained a cultivated environment for me to think, explore, and share. It’s the most introspective and rewarding experience I’ve invested in. And best of all, it never has to be anything other than mine. While it’s happily housed my university work over the last few years, there’s no significant pressure on it, academically or professionally speaking.

Almost a decade later, and up a journalism degree, I’m significantly less hopeful to make writing listicles for BuzzFeed a full-time mortgage-paying gig. I have shifted my focus towards making my business Neesh Photography, my life’s work – but I still find enjoyment in writing and I wouldn’t mind pursuing a career in the journalism/content creation field. It’s a great outlet and in today’s age, media skills are increasingly valuable – so the blog lives to see another day.

I’m excited to see how this space might grow and change with me in the coming years – and I thank you sincerely for taking the time to have a look around.
