An Actors Blog . . .

Thursday, 30 August 2012


My new blog has really started to take off folks! ENJOY!
I Have A New Blog

It is true folks - My 'Actors Blog' is going to become a little stagnant over the next few months. You may have noticed the decline in my posts recently anyway and for this I can only apologise as I have done over and over again on this blog many a time.

Currently, my mind has been a little tied up by other things. Namely, these sort of things:

Yes! I am to become a Mom on the 30 November and am the most excited I think I have ever been. So, I have decided to start my own 'Mommy Blog' I understand that some of you may despise of the idea and jump off the Jessica band-wagon. But, it is something that I really want to do and am having fun planning. It would be so lovely to see you all over there if I'm honest. It would be great to have you following my journey.

The new blog goes by the name of 'Moms The Word' and you can get to it here:

I really hope you enjoy my new blog as much as I hope you have enjoyed this one. This is not goodbye to 'An Actors Blog' it's merely - 'One will be back soon!'

Autumn 2012 Season

Arena Theatre Launches Autumn Season

So for those of tyou that have followed my blog for a while, you are probably aware that I currently work at the Arena Theatre and I am in charge of their marketing for the time being. Well, I wanted to dedicate this post to the launch of new season here at the Arena Theatre.

We have quite a wonderful Season lined up for you if I am honest. I am quite excited by it. We even have a week's worht of 'Mad Science' workshops for all kids aged 4 - 12 years in the October half term plus it has a Haloween theme to it for extra pizazz. So if you do have children that you are stuck with in the half term - you should enquire here at the Arena for fun things to do.

Of course, when launching a new season you always need a new brochure and this is where I have come in with Marketing this Season. The September - December seasons brochure has took many a proof and a spell check but I have managed to complete it with little mistakes (Fingers crossed) I am quite proud of myself in a way as a designer I am not but I have given it my best shot. I have managed to get an online version for you to browse through. See below:

All in all, quite a hot season. I believe it to be quite a 'celebratory' season if you like as we as a Theatre are doing alot to celebrate 'Black History Month' with some wonderful shows coming to us from the likes of Gazebo Theatre, Jamfolk, Fittings Multimedia Arts and many many more. Plus, we like to celebrate that old Festive time - Christmas with quite a few Christmas shows coming to us. This makes me happy as Christmas is easily the best time of year and one that I feel everyone should celebrate and enjoy! :-)

Blog help ...


Folks! I have probably been quite an annoyance to those of you that follow my blog (Followed rather) as you can't really follow something that hasn't been followable for a while. Completely my fault as I have been quite a lazy blogger and for that I apologise. As I always do.

I have been 'umming' and 'ahhing' as to whether to keep my blog going or not? I am aware that I ask this question quite a bit and get a few answers. My reason for asking is - Do you find my blog enjoyable to read and would you wish to continue to do so on a daily basis? I really enjoy writitng my blog and find it a great way of looking back over all of the things that I have done and am proud of. I find it wonderful that I am able to share all my experiences with you guys and hear what you all have to say! 

I want to continue with my blog and become devoted and committed to it once again. But, I feel the need for a change and I would really appreciate your help in this change, if at all possible? When I say change - I do quite literally mean a change. I want to change the design of my blog and freshen it up etc:

When I posed a similar question to this to my followers a while back I did receive an email stating that I should perhaps focus my blog a bit more to one specific thing rather than my day to day things and as much as I respect that opinion and am very appreciative to the persons opinion - I don't feel that is necessary. I enjoy writing my day to day speel and I like the fact that my blog is somewhat random if you like. I know it isn't to everyone's tastes and perhaps I should listen to the advice of one reader but I am willing to decline that advice (gracefully of course.) and continue to write my life in words. However, that doesn't mean that I am not willing to write more or less on a specific topic etc etc:

Am I making sense? I fear I'm not - I regularly don't! :-)

So ladies and gents all I ask of you is - Blog ideas please? and any other opinions or comments on my blog would be greatly appreciated.
