How I would survive if I was on Channel 4’s ‘Hunted’
We’ve all dreamt of getting away with a crime as children. Some adults still do – but most won’t act on those thoughts. You’d hope.
My recurrent dream is quite simple: how I would evade capture if I was on the show Hunted.
Of course, this is the fantasy and surrealist side of my brain talking; if I were to actually be on the show, or ever in a position where I was on the run, I would probably be found within a day or two, so.
But I have a plan, anyway.Continue reading “How I would survive if I was on Channel 4’s ‘Hunted’”

9 DPR campaigns I’ve loved working on over the last 12 months
It was shocking for me to realise the other day that I have been working in the digital PR industry now for over twelve months!
I have learnt so much this past year, from what digital PR actually is, how it can aid with search engine ranking, and what makes an effective campaign.
Since starting, I’ve had the privilege of working on over 70 different campaigns for a large variety of clients. At the start of 2021, I set upon myself to achieve 500 placements (mentions and links, on sites with a DA of 20+) before December 31st, and I am so chuffed to say that today (Oct. 26) I reached it!
In the light of having something to celebrate, I thought I would look back on all of the campaigns I have done the last year and highlight 11 of my favourites.Continue reading “9 DPR campaigns I’ve loved working on over the last 12 months”
Words from Friends: My Personal Opinion on the Hijab
Judy is an MA English Literature student at Aberystwyth University. During Ramadan this year, she took the time to explain what wearing the hijab as part of her religion meant to her. I’m very excited to share her opinion as the first of this new series, ‘Words from Friends’, where I aim to publicise different voices about issues that are important to them.

Summer Solstice 2020
Happy Summer Solstice everyone! Even though the weather might not seem to have gotten the memo, (we’ve had plenty of lightning storms here in the Midlands over the last week), we are now entering summer! And I’m here to tell you a little bit about the summer solstice, or as its more commonly known, the longest day of the year.
Returning to Birmingham was unplanned, sporadic, urgent; it was a decision made out of my hands and accompanied by an exhausting, inexplicable mix of emotions. I think a lot of students have felt the same way, and I can’t help but ramble on.
Mental Health in a Time of Mass Hysteria
I’m going to start this post by announcing some content warnings; please do not read ahead if you are vulnerable to talks of self-harm. Originally, this was going to be a post about coping with self-harm, but with the current climate and the ever-evolving information about Covid-19, it seemed best to tweak the subject matter somewhat.
