Blogging life

As my time draws near to giving the baton to another fellow student in the History of Art department to take over the running of the student blog, I have been thinking a lot about the future of this blog. Many probably do not know that I have used to have my own personal blog on a different domain, however, with the role of running this student blog I have long neglected my other site! For that reason, and the reason that I am really proud of this blog, I will now make this my new personal site! Although I will begin taking my posts in a different direction – mainly focusing on my time in Paris this year (Gulp, I am getting nervous!), I will still continue to have my posts about History of Art. This year I will begin my application to Masters programmes, and so this blog will also document this personal journey of mine.


So keep checking for updates on my gap-year, Masters applications, tips and general guides for studying History of Art where ever you are (I have lots of blog posts planned, and am currently writing one with my tips for Dissertations – watch this space!) and other things.


I hope everyone is having a wonderful summer 🙂
