Firstly I would like to apologize to anyone who has been following my career from the start. I know this seems like my 100th website and blog and that’s because it is but at the age of 27 with the next chapter of my life about to take off, I decided it was time to finally be a grown up and finally time to have my own .com website.
So why now you may ask. What is this next chapter I speak of? Well if you did follow my other 100 blogs you may know that I recently took a job as the lead reporter and content creator with the newly established National Lacrosse League Productions team. Basically my job is to create stories and content in hopes of helping grow the game across the nation and I must say, I L-O-V-E my job.
I have held many different titles, positions, and hats during my 5 short years in the media industry, but what I have learned in this time is that it is rapidly changing. What I think I love most about NLL Productions and the soon to be launched NLL TV is how ahead they are from the pack. With fewer cable subscriptions and less people sitting down to watch on TV, we are charging head first into the digital world.
I have certainly experienced the changing media world first hand. It wasn’t too long ago that the TV station I worked for shut down, leaving hundreds of employees trying to find work in a very competitive industry. Later, I watched as dozens of my friends lost their job when another station declared bankruptcy. It was evident that the media broadcast industry as we knew it was changing rapidly and the way to keep up was transitioning to the digital world.
So we now come full circle, just like the broadcast industry transitions to the digital world, so must Mia Gordon. I intend to use this website as an opportunity to share the stories I care about and that I am able to put together for the NLL, to share with you my passions, travels, hobbies, and causes that matter to me. For those of you who have followed my career through all 100 websites I say thank you, and to those who are joining the journey now, welcome I can’t wait to share my future adventures!
