As my blog is growing and I’m gaining more views and followers each day, I decided that it was time to develop my website and create a brand. I honestly love the name of my website because I feel like, it is not just relatable to students but to literally anyone whilst collectively categorising ‘us’ as one. I’m sure we’ve all been there; we ask ourselves why we were not told certain things as we were growing up and I guess that’s where the idea came from. Although primarily focused on all things student-related, I wish to develop the blog in years to come offering advice on any experiences that I have encountered that would be useful for anyone younger than me to know.
Slogan and Logo
Although I’m not hugely fussed on my slogan “From one student to another”, it clearly states that I am offering you, the reader, any advice that I feel would be suitable and useful for you.
My close friend Beth Williams, a student in Bournemouth studying Visual Communication, created my logo and the icon used in the URL box (both shown below). I love both of these designs, particularly the colours used. If any of you would like to contact Beth or view some of her work, you can find her on http://bethanamberwilliams.com
Beliefs and Values
I believe that each individual person has their own path to follow and shouldn’t be influenced by anyone to make their own decisions. I do however believe that advice and guidance is the key to success, of which there certainly is a lack of. That’s where ‘Things They Never Told Us’ comes in. I want to offer little tips and tricks that might make your life as a student a little easier and more enjoyable.
I value that everyone has an opinion and a voice, and everyone has and will experience different experiences to the next person. That’s why I encourage discussion on my Campus Society channel http://www.campussociety.com/channel/1858060
If however, you are not on Campus Society, then please leave comments below any of my posts and I will reply as quickly as I can. I’d love to hear what you all have to say.
You probably question the feature image choice used in all my posts. I love anything and everything arty and although the images don’t necessarily go with the posts, I thought it was a way to add something creative to my blog. Additionally, I wanted all my work to be my own and not copied from the internet.
I am hoping to create a Facebook page where I will be able to keep my readers up to date on all things studenty outside of my blog. I understand that not everyone on my personal Facebook account is into reading blog posts, so hopefully this will be an alternative of bombarding my friends with things they might not want to read.
I am very much open to publishing guest posts, as long as I am certain that the post is completely relevant to my readers. I will clearly state whether the post is written by a guest, by stating the author and displaying a link to the original post. I am unable to follow a post back to the original publication unless a trackback URL is provided, so please keep this in mind.
I’ve been so busy recently with uni work that I haven’t been posting as frequently as I’d like. However, with lectures finished for the year, I will aim to publish at least one post a week, if not more. I have a lot of ideas but I just need to get round to writing them for you all.
Thank you all for your continued support and kind words. It means a lot for fellow students and companies to contact me telling me how much they like my blog and how much it has helped them. So thank you!
