My First Blogging Job - Becoming a Content Ambassador for My University

Thursday, November 15, 2018


So this is kind of a random midweek post, but I just thought it was worth updating you with the exciting news. If any of you don't already know, I'm currently in my first year at The University of Manchester, studying English Literature. A couple of months ago, I applied to the 'content ambassador' programme, which is basically a group of students creating content for the university, in the form of blog posts, videos, podcasts and anything else you can think of!

After sending off my application, all about myself and my blog, I made it through to the next round of 'workshops', where a select few people got to share their ideas and discuss some potential content for the programme. A few weeks ago, I found out that I was successful, making me an official blogger for my university!

This is honestly such an exciting opportunity for me, as I've blogged for 4 and a half years but now is my chance to expand my blog onto another platform and reach a much wider audience, and I definitely think I have a lot of valuable advice to share. It'll also be the first time that my blog will turn into a part-time job for me, as beforehand I've always done it solely for the enjoyment, but now it'll turn into more of a job for me, which is very exciting.

So what does that mean for Daisies and Delights?
Don't worry, nothing will be changing on my blog here! I'll still be uploading blog posts 3 times a week (although I might miss the occasional one as uni becomes very hectic!), but it means that you'll also be getting some extra content from me. I aim to upload 1-3 times a month on the Manchester University blog, and I'll obviously be sharing that with you guys. It also means that there'll be a chance to see a variety of different types of content from me, whether that's videos, podcasts or anything else you can imagine - now's the time that I can explore that!

I hope you enjoyed this blog post, even if it might be kind of pointless, but I just wanted to share this exciting new opportunity of blogging with you guys. I'll be sharing all the posts I write for The University of Manchester on Twitter, and I might even do a little round-up post of them every month on my blog, so make sure you keep an eye out for that. Thanks for reading and I'll see you on Sunday with another new blog post!

Love from Daisy x
