What’s your blog all about?

The everyday thoughts and ideas of your average university student.

Describe your blog in three words

Unique.

Creative.

Funny.

Why did you start your blog?

I wanted the opportunity to speak out and have my opinions heard across the internet. I wanted to help people around the world who shared my opinions and, more importantly,experiences, through the medium of the internet. It was very important for me to be able to help those who were suffering, be that through making them laugh through a blog post or discussing real issues that would help people realise that they aren't alone.

Gemma Parry is our blogger of the week

How long have you been running it?

Seven months .

What makes it different from the rest?

Its approach to serious topics makes it incredibly unique. The blog is able to discuss serious issues that are not usually discussed in an open, friendly and amusing way, meaning that they are more likely to be discussed. For example, previous blog posts include discussions of depression, love addiction, male feminists and gay marriage.

Who would be your dream guest blogger?

I'm not sure! But I'd be looking for someone who is confident about their ideas, creative and open minded.

What was your last blog post about?

The importance of students' unions and societies for students.

What’s been your “blog highlight”?

I wrote a post about love addiction last year and so far, it has the highest amount of views. It made me really pleased that I was able to reach and help so many people who were suffering from love addiction.
