So I haven’t updated this blog in ages and I though it would be good to keep you informed on what I am currently up to.
So to start of with I am about half way though my masters degree in Magazine Journalism at the University of Central Lancashire. I am studying for my NTCJ exams including shorthand, very please to say I am up to 70 words per minute and only been learning since October.
I have already done modules on specialist writing, creating content, digital journalism, law and public affairs. I am currently working in a group module producing two magazines: a business and a consumer.
With that three day, full time course, I am also working at a jewellers in Lancaster whist studying for my masters. It makes me very busy but it is very rewarding.
My other blogs are going steady at the moment with me updating as normal. However my YouTube channel has exploded with views over the past month and a half. It has gone from 750 subscribers to 2,300 in less than 50 days!
With this the focus of my portfolio online will be on that channel and I have been putting a lot of time and energy in to making that the best representation of my work as possible.
So in between a full time course, a part time job and my online adventures I am keeping myself very busy with also the look to also be applying for jobs in the magazine or publishing world. Keeping busy keeps me happy!
