thoughts and ideas

For me, social media offers the opportunity for new and exciting writing platforms. Its a chance to express thoughts, opinions and facts to a wide range of different people and audiences.

Working as a press officer, you usually have to operate under certain writing constraints.A formulaic ‘press release style’ which often doesn’t allow for creativity. This course has shown me in particular how blogs and tweets can offer an increase in writing freedom and are a great addition for working alongside more traditional forms of media such as TV and radio.

Some intrepid Aston University graduates have just completed a taxi journey around the world – creating a new world record in the process! This story is a good example of something which\ will work great for both traditional and new media.

I’ve also decided that I’m better off behind the camera than in front of it!!
