Wie is Papierkind? // Who is Papierkind?

//ENGLISH FOLLOWS AFRIKAANS//

Welkom, ek is Jaco-Mari, noem my sommer JM. Hierdie is ‘n persoonlike blog (nee, nie ‘n dagboek nie), maar die inhoud van hierdie blog reflekteer my belangstellings en my perspektief op ons wêreld. Op hierdie platform skryf ek oor dit waaroor ek passievol voel. Jy kan gerus by my Reis, Lewe, Mense, Portefeulje, Kreatiewe Skrywe en my Persoonlike Joernaal inloer om te kyk wat jou belangstelling prikkel.

Wie is Jaco-Mari Futcher?

Om mee te begin wil ek noem dat ek baie passievol is oor woorde, hoe dit lyk en hoe dit klink. Ek is ‘n creator en woorde is die gereedskap waarmee ek mense aanraak. Ek is ook ‘n bietjie van ‘n hopeless romantic, maar wys vir my ‘n skrywer wat nie een is nie?

Ek is ook baie lief vir musiek en ek glo dat lekker kos en goeie geselskap die sleutel tot geluk is, dus sal jy my altyd met ‘n koffie of ‘n slice pizza in die hand sien.

Waar kom ek vandaan?

Ek was onlangs ‘n student aan die Noordwes-Universiteit  se Potchefstroomkampus. Ek het op 29 Maart 2012 hierdie blog begin om my skryf-vaardighede te oefen nadat die redakteur van my tuisdorp, Vryburg, se gemeenskapskoerant dit vir my voorgestel het. Ek het pas my honneurs in joernalistiek aand ie NWU voltooi en my langtermyndoelwit is om ‘n joernalis by ‘n Suid-Afrikaanse koerant of tydskrif te wees.

Hierdie blog is in 2012 aangewys as 4de op JIP se Top 10 Tienerblogs. Ek geniet steeds elke sekonde van skryf en om my lewe met julle te deel.

Welcome, I’m Jaco-Mari but you can call me JM. This is a personal blog (no, it’s not a diary), but the content of this blog reflects my interests and my perspective on the world. On this platform, I write about what I feel passionate about. You can feel free to check out my Travel, Life, PersonalitiesPortfolioCreative Writing and Personal Journal to see what interests you. In January 2018 I decided to write in both Afrikaans and English and unfortunately everything before 2018 is written in Afrikaans. I look forward to writing and interacting with my new English audience.

Who is Jaco-Mari Futcher?

I am very passionate about words, how it looks and how it sounds. I am a creator and words are the tools I use to touch the hearts of people. I’m also a bit of a hopeless romantic, but show me a writer who’s not one?

I also love music and I believe that good food and good company are the keys to happiness, so you will always see me with a cup of coffee or a slice of cheesy pizza when I with friends or family.

Where do I come from?

I am recently was a student at the Northwest University’s (NWU) Potchefstroom Campus. On 29 March 2012, I started this blog to practice my writing skills after the editor of my hometown’s community newspaper, suggested it to me. I have just completed my honors degree in journalism at the NWU and my long-term goal is to be a journalist at a South African newspaper or magazine.

This blog placed 4th on JIP’s Top 10 Teen blogs in 2012. I still enjoy writing and sharing my life with you every second.
