At last! The recognition I deserve

I was interviewed by a journalist from the Guardian last night about my paragliding hobby. It was a phone interview - she does a small weekly column on people with ordinary jobs but extraordinary pastimes.I really enjoyed the experience - I don't often get the chance to talk at length about one of my obsessions with someone who genuinely wants to hear my answers! Most people nod politely for a few minutes then change the subject. It will probably go out in the Monday Guardian Media section in two or three weeks time. I will keep you posted....

Wow! How did they find out about you? Do you need a press manager?

Wow! The Guardian! Nice work. I did my first interview this week (via email), it was a very strange experience.

<<...people with ordinary jobs but extraordinary pastimes>> and I thought, at last The Guardian will be covering boardgames properly. Congrats anyway

with someone who genuinely wants to hear my answers!

She was journalist. Her only interest in your answers was that they fill column inches.
