Churner Prize

I do like this. Clearly the Churner Prize has been started by a bunch of disillusioned hacks who, like me, went into the industry full of wide-eyed optimism and came out right cynical bastards, yet still love the industry. It’s the kind of thing blogging was built for. And they’ve got a point.

Quite how I found them is interesting in itself. They subscribed to my Twitter feed – either they’re devoted readers of this blog, if such a description isn’t an oxymoron,  or they just saw me on a couple of feeds I follow and thought ‘bugger it, this chap looks like he’s interested in the media’. Either way, I’m quite glad they did.

    I enjoy reading your blog as well, and am now following you on Twitter. Does that make me a disillusioned hack?

    Possibly. Do you suffer from bouts of misanthropy and gallows humour? If so, join the club.

    If pressed, I would probably describe myself as a misanthropist who suffers from bouts of good cheer. It’s a side effect of dealing with the public, I suppose.
