#FridayFive: Five Things to Consider Before Starting a Blog

There are many things to consider before starting a blog, and I definitely wouldn’t recommend just jumping in and winging it (like I have done myself in the past). If you’re serious about blogging and want to give a really good crack at it, then by all means, go right…

#FridayFive: Five Things I Hope to Achieve in the Next Five Years

Happy Friday! If you know me, then you’ll know I always like to have a plan in place, goals to meet and targets to achieve. I always like to set myself goals whether that be in my personal life, my career plan or blog-wise. Having goals always gives me something…

#BloggersWanted: Lazy or Tactful?

I have this niggling annoyance with the #BloggersWanted hashtag on Twitter. I see PRs and Marketers sending out tweets asking for bloggers to get in contact for possible collaborations, review products or be added to mailing lists.

Holly Nichols – Let’s Hear it for the Girls Campaign

Are You Ready For This Year’s Liverpool ONE Student Event?

You know the saying, ‘Loan’s in, wit’s out,’ right? If not, it basically means ‘More money than sense.’ Well it’s almost that time of year again when your bank balance increases and you suddenly feel like a millionaire – a student-style millionaire, anyway. But the wit doesn’t need to be…
