An interview with Laura Belshaw, author of the student lifestyle blog, The Confessions of a Professional Drama Queen. Laura spoke to us about the drama that draws people to her site, how she works with brand marketers representing different sectors and graduating and stepping into the job market.
Why should people read your blog? What makes it different? In all honesty? I’m bonkers. Well I think I am…and my bubbly personality shines through my blog. It works for me because I constantly get told how I’ve brought a smile or a laugh to someones face and that my writing style is hilarious. I never thought of myself in that way but to know my crazy self is making people across the globe laugh is brilliant so if you’re looking for a laugh and something unique in blogging, head on over!
How do you work with marketers and PRs? Normally they will email me introducing themselves and how my blog or myself can help them with a product or a campaign. I usually ask them about what sort of things they would wish me to do for them and we come to an arrangement. I tend to have a post up and running with 24 hours of PRs contacting me – I like to be efficient and enjoy it so much that I can never switch off from my blog!
What will be big in your blogosphere in the coming months? Oh tough question.I have more brand collaborations coming up in the future, so stay tuned for that. I have also just graduated and am looking for a career in marketing and PR so that is bound to have a huge impact on the content of my blog. I look forward to writing about the adventure!
