I’ve finally introduced an actual blog part to this site – it used to just be my projects. I’mreally looking forward to start publishing some media related posts on here. As you might know, I also have another blog – KAMZ ONLINE which is a personal lifestyle, uni and travel site. I will most probably be a lot more active on there.
I got pushed towards the idea to put a blog page on this portfolio site when talking to some people about digital and online portfolios. On here, I can talk about my career, education, media work, inspirations and ambitions, which is something I can’t really do on the other blog.
Plus, what a great opportunity to show more of what I do or what I have to say to someone who is interested in my digital portfolio or in my work. If you do have a similar site, I do really recommend doing the same – especially that it keeps your site more active!
What have I been up to? If you’ve been on here before, you’ll see that I haven’t updated my projects in a long time. The truth is, I haven’t even finished putting up all my old work, never mind any new work. The other truth is – there isn’t as much new work. I will really get on top of that as soon as possible, but I’m struggling for time currently. Why?
- Uni work – As it’s coming towards the end of my second year, everything’s piling up. I had a few weeks of complete non stop essays – soon as that finished, it’s exams, then more essays in the future! On the other hand, my classes finish next week (crazy how soon it is, right?) and I only have about a month left of assessments. After that, I’m finally free to prioritise everything else (and binge on those TV shows I’ve been missing).
- Placement search – After not being sure whether to go on a placement year, I finally decided to try and find one. However, a placement search is a really difficult, especially that many of them have their deadlines so soon (some have even already passed) but I’m staying positive! It just takes a lot of time, especially that in this industry it seems vital to amend your CV for each position and have everything up
to date online (including this, oooops).
- Media work – Although I said there isn’t much new work, I have been working on some stuff that I will put up soon. That includes some graphic design and some photography/video footage. I have also done some volunteering with the Yorkshire Sport Foundation, where I got to be a part of the media team during the South Yorkshire School Games – I’ll write a separate post on that, and hopefully will also get to upload some work from that soon.
I can not wait to finish this term’s modules, so that I can do all the things I have planned to do this summer. Until I post more, do check out my projects, find me on social media (which you can find on the side bar) and check out my other blog!
