A little while ago I was contacted by a group of students to assist with an assignment for their Master's in Media and Journalism / PR. They wanted to base their assignment around a group of local bloggers who have expressed themselves through their own creative blogs. They contacted a few local bloggers - Anthony Dorman Photographer, John Jenkinson Food Blogger Scobberlotch, Alan Reed Painter and me PinkBow for personal style, fashion and beauty.
It was so interesting to take part in such a project and spend some time with a young group of students, it made me wish that such a degree had been available when I was looking for career direction when choosing a university. I loved the finished website they produced, you can see my feature here and visit the whole site here. Also to see the perspective of other local bloggers, as blogging has been relatively slow to get started here in Newcastle upon Tyne in the North East of England.
This was also the first time I have ever been filmed, so it really was a learning curve for me too. I consider myself to be quite a shy person and yet I was surprised that I seemed to come across quite confident. At the same time, I don't really think I look like me at all, I'm sure my face doesn't usually make those odd movements ;-) But I thought I would include it here as I don't often share anything too personal and the little story which accompanies the film and photographs on their site is really quite charming.
