When I started this blog, I hoped I would get lots of brilliant people volunteering to write for me and within a year I’d be able to reach out to brands and companies and tell them about this little community I’d built.
I underestimated how much work this would take – well, I didn’t, I knew it would take a lot of work but I overestimated how much time I’d have to do this work.
At present, I’ve been trying my best to find out new contributors and writing posts of my own in the mean time to make sure the blog stays updated. In total I was trying to come with ideas for and write five blog posts a week and with all my second year assignments at uni, other society commitments and trying to have some sort of control over my health and sanity.
This isn’t me giving up on this blog – in the Summer when I have more time, I intend to look for someone to help me co-run the blog, as well as approaching bloggers specifically and asking them to contribute and perhaps even reaching out to brands and asking to collaborate. Maybe a contributors Facebook page would be useful too.
I have so many ideas and so much hope and passion for this blog that I don’t want this to be the end, but right now I can’t give it the attention it deserves to be as great as I know it can be.
Thank you for your continued support and to everyone who’s ever written for The Student Seat – you’re what made the last six months great.
