I always say that one of the nicest things about blogging is seeing those names of readers on your notifications who were in sense, with you when it all began. Of course, I don’t claim to be a blog of epic proportions, worthy of offering endorsements or advertisements or such things, but what I mean is that the journey has been a long one.
I remember beginning this blog whilst doing my A-levels and I would leave little slips of paper with my URL around the college. Now, as the last four weeks of classes of my English degree approach, those days seem a long way away. So I would like to take this moment to thank all of you who have been on this journey with me, and to welcome the newest friends who have now helped me reach 4000+ followers. (Woohoo time to update the line on my CV.)
I’ve also begun posting my links onto Facebook which means I now have friends coming up to me and talking about some of my posts. This takes a bit of getting used to as previously the blogosphere and friends felt like two completely different worlds. So its a nice and refreshing change and also one that increases my motivation to blog frequently. So thanks people!
Blogging is fun and it makes your brain constantly be on the prowl for the next post but it also means that as an English student, it can begin to feel like all you do is type. Typing essays, typing assignments, typing notes and typing blogs. Its important to feed your mind with food and if there is one perk to leaving the cosy life of university, it is that I will finally have my own reading time back. Instead of having it dictated to me by module lists, I will be able to enjoy reading freely again. Of course, there is still the small matter of not having a job lined up yet post-university so I guess that equals more reading time right?
Let’s cut this short now, I have a screenplay scene to write and a couple hundred pages to skim through.
Until Next Time
A Worried Student
