Laura HartleyDateline: What's Hot?
Laura Hartley. Student.16.London. There's not a lot more to say really. I started this blog because I was extremely disappointed that the editor of the new school magazine had decided to only include one paragraph of my writing, despite the fact that I had written 20 pages worth of articles. I wanted my posts to be seen and so I posted them here on blogger. At first I thought that this was going to be a fashion blog (was that a groan I heard?), but then I realised that fashion blogging really wasn't my thing. Nobody should tell you what looks good or what's on trend, you should decide. I spend a f*** load of time watching movies, television and reading books and once I started reviewing I realised that I actually really love writing and hey, perhaps one day I'll be a critic. I'm not very proud of the posts I wrote when I just started out, I'd like to think that my posts have improved considerably since I began. I hope that by blogging regularly I'm not only doing something extra to add to my CV but also coming out of my shell, expressing my opinions, and hopefully improving my English! I'm not really sure what the future holds for me... I actually started this blog because I wanted to be a journalist and I thought this was a good way of getting into it and giving myself a tiny bit of experience; however, as time has gone on I've realised perhaps journalism isn't for me, but some form of writing is still on the cards. Yet again, I find myself waffling, so, I shall leave you to explore my blog. Enjoy!
