As the new academic year has drawn closer, I’ve been thinking back to when I first started my blog in college. When I started, I couldn’t find much advice on how to navigate all of this. I didn’t know how to plan my time, my content, I thought I needed loads of fancy equipment and I felt a bit lost and lonely in it all. At the moment, I feel that many people will probably be starting their own blogs as they want to document a new and exciting time in their life as they go to college or University. Starting a blog is an awesome hobby, I can never seem to get bored with it. So, for those of you considering starting a blog or have just started one, I wanted to share with you a few tips and a bit of advice that I wished someone had told me when I first started. By no means is this an exhaustive list, but I hope this can help you find your feet as you enter the blogging community.Continue reading “How to run a blog as a student”
It’s been far too long since I’ve done one of these posts. Life has been a tad manic with Christmas and January assignments. There hasn’t been all that many opportunity’s for me just to sit down and think. But now what I’ve got a few minuets to myself, I think it’s time to revisit this series.
If you’re new to this then don’t worry, the title is very self explanatory. Throughout the past year I’ve been creating a collection of things I’m grateful for. They don’t make the most exciting blog posts in the world but I like taking the time out to be thankful for what I have, and I always encourage you guys to let me know in the comments three things you’re currently grateful for.
Dear Social Media.
I’ve known you for a while and I can say that I can’t stand you. Hate feels like too strong of a word and anyway, if I truly hated you then why do I spend so much time with you?
I guess you’re something I love to hate.
I don’t know what it is about you, maybe it’s the way you keep me entertained, maybe it’s the way you show me adventures and beautiful places I would have never imagined existed. Maybe its the funny cat videos and the cute puppies that bring a smile to my face. Maybe it’s the dopamine rush I get from people liking a picture of mine.
No matter what it is, I can’t seem to put you down.
You make me feel connected, yet I’ve never been so lonely. I can’t remember the last time I spoke to some of the people on my news feed. I don’t send them a text, I won’t meet them for coffee, why should I? I only have to scroll and I know everything they’ve done for the past year. But hours of scrolling makes me seem dull, friends I once knew pose for a photo and my loneliness only grows. I have a fear of missing out because of you.
