An interview with Issy Goode, a student and author of the blog, Life and Times of a Student. Issy spoke to us about her blog getting over 8,000 views in the run up to freshers’ week 2013, answering student queries that universities can’t and getting her first feel of what marketers want from her content.
Why should people read your blog? What makes it different? As a student blog, I offer not only advice based on my own experience of university, but also advice gathered from the experience of others. In the past I’ve conducted interviews with students from all over the country detailing the ups and downs of their first year. I also offer very honest accounts of my experience, from the serious to the embarrassing; I choose not to leave a stone unturned because I believe that people ought to know what to expect from university – it is fun and games, but like everything else in life it has its ups and downs. And I personally believe that my honesty and involving other students on my blog makes it quite unique.
