Blog: Olly WehringJust-drinks new news editor - She speaks!

Olly Wehring | 20 April 2007

As a change from the usual blog, as written by my esteemed editor, let me introduce myself. I’m Jessica Harvey, and I’m now the news editor here at just-drinks. It’s been a busy first week.

Here begins the unstructured warble:

Firstly, thanks to everyone who has been kind enough to get in contact. I promise to answer all of your emails personally very soon and look forward to meeting most of you in person at some stage too.

In an effort to summarise my impressions of entering the drinks industry and not sounding like too much of a naïve, swotty little upstart (that I am), I shall keep it short.

In fact, I’ll bullet point. Here goes. My week has been filled with:

Early starts, travelling outside of Central London, press releases, international dialling codes, wine tasting, unique content, Olly forcing his music taste on me, learning keyboard shortcuts, drinking on an empty stomach, MSN Messenger, spilling stuff dangerously close to the laptop.

I thank you.

Drop me a line soon. It gives me an excuse to use my new calendar.

 

Jessica can be contacted at editor@just-drinks.com.
