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”

Happy Winter Solstice!
A few months back I posted about Summer Solstice celebrations, and so I’ve decided to do the same with the Winter Solstice – as well as a general round up of how 2020 has been for me.
Like the Summer Solstice marks the longest day, the Winter Solstice marks the shortest. Luckily for many, it means the nights are going to begin getting shorter, and we will see more daylight hours as the weeks progress.Continue reading “Winter Solstice and a 2020 Round Up”
Late to awareness of this campaign (Oxfam, if you need a volunteer Marketing Assistant, I am available), Secondhand September was launched at the start of the month. Countryliving explains it best with their article opener of ‘#SecondHandSeptember is a 30-day campaign run by Oxfam encouraging people across the UK to stop buying new clothes for the month in a bid to curb our fast fashion habits’ (source).
I’m here to tell you a little bit about the two main ways you can take part in Secondhand September: Charity shopping, and Upcycling. And best of all? These are practices you can extend beyond September!Continue reading “Secondhand September”
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.

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.
Oh Wonder: My First Solo Concert
Wednesday, February 12th I was brave enough to go and see one of my favourite bands live for an intimate performance in Nottingham. I’d like to start by saying a thank-you to Ysa, who I had a delight meeting and chatting with about hamsters, boys and singing along to their songs.
