What’s good on the internet & what’s good in life?
Welcome to AkiemBailum.com, the official website of journalist Akiem Bailum.
First, I would like to start off by thanking every single person whom I have met thus far in my 24 years that has led me to where I am right now. I may not be where I want to be, but I shudder to think where I would be if it were not for the amazing friends and family that I have in my life. I cannot thank them enough, which is why I try and help them as much as they have helped me!
And I cannot thank you enough for reading this first blog post. All of the information there is about me is on the various pages.
About Akiem—a biography of my life thus far and a listing of the things I like to do when I’m not busy either writing, shooting with a camera, or editing.
Bailum Reports—a compilation of my news reports. Future broadcast stories I cover will be uploaded to Bailum Reports as it serves as its own news website.
Contact Me—how to get in touch with me.
Influences—those who have influenced me to pursue journalism. These include both personal and professional influences.
Resume—an overview of what I have done thus far.
Voiceover work—various voiceovers that I have recorded for radio shows.
Writing Samples—Examples of the work I have put in on a print basis for various internet and print news/sports sites and publications. This, along with Bailum Reports will also be updated regularly as I write more and more.
YouTube—the YouTube videos I have recorded from 2009 until 2014.
I’ll keep this as my main blog post for now before I start updating this website with daily blog posts. What will they be about? They’ll be about, basically anything. Some will be pertaining to sports, others about radio, others about issues I may be going through in life, and others will be simply about occasional randomness (aka anything).
In addition, as a show of appreciation to my great friends and readers, I plan to feature a guest writer once every week. I’ll feature a short description of who you are and your picture (if you choose) prior to your blog post. Even though my name is on this website, I want to be interactive and include you as part of this as well!
Again, one more thanks for reading this first blog post! I’ll be seeing you on the Internet somewhere!
