1 year of blogging: Best PR Student Blogger 2017

I hadn’t even realised until the other day that my blog is now a year old. In all honesty, I feel like I have cheated a bit saying that – I originally started out as LifeofaPRstudent but I have been blogging for a year. When I realised that I was hitting this anniversary, I thought back to my first few months of blogging. I was always so nervous when I posted a piece of writing. It took me a long while to even attempt to publish a PR related post. I was constantly worried that people would hate my blog…

Life Update: End of year stress and the London countdown

So it has come as no surprise that this blog has taken a bit of a back seat recently. It is that time of year.

Seeing as I am being asked this a lot and…

#ThursdayThought : Using Snapchat to gain publicity with The White Moose Cafe

So, this week’s ThursdayThought isn’t with anybody else – it is just my thoughts for this week. The reason for this is that life has been a little crazy at the moment – everything seems to happen all at once! More interesting #ThursdayThought interviews are on their way, just enjoy a few week’s of my thoughts again whilst I get everything back to normal. This week I have been thinking about how businesses use social media effectively or in different ways. This immediately led me to think of the White Moose Cafe. You may not recognise the name, but you…
