A bit about writing
Imagine me as one of those crazy 7 in 1 anti-bac sprays that you keep in your cupboard. Okay, that’s a shocking example but work with me here… Since graduating, I’ve thrown myself in to educating myself in everything PR and beyond (and I thought uni’d be the end of my learning days.). Competent in SEO, creative content marketing and PR – I love to combine the three to create really successful campaigns for others. That’s by day anyway…
And by night… Well, ever keen to continue writing (like a book with no end) I also write on a freelance basis as well as on this blog. I am currently accepting freelance work amid the few clients I already have on board. And, I’m always available for journalism commissions too – I’ve written words in The Independent, The Guardian and Global Seven News and I’m always on the hunt for more. So drop me a line. (Oh, and I also dabble in a little design work too, I love creating infographics and logos (now you’re seeing why I used that quite-tragic 7 in 1 metaphor, right?))
A bit about this blog
I created this blog in 2017 after blogging for around a year on another (and admittedly a bit-of-a-failure) site. In the past, I used to only blog about music, but after becoming more comfortable with blogging and expressing my views (and since my music taste pretty much nosedived to only listening to The Greatest Showman on repeat) I no longer wanted to constrict myself to one genre of writing and thus I founded this blog. After posting frequently since creating this blog, I started to edge towards more PR/Marketing focused writing and this is what I plan to continue with – but take that with a pinch of salt as I pretty much unapologetically write whatever I feel like writing.
I finally became http://www.thoughtsofjessica.com at the start of 2018, and my monthly visitors spiked to the thousands (and you guys have stuck around – so thank you).
A bit about PR
I wanted to study PR because I love how it’s always changing and always exciting. I’ve worked in a number of fast-paced agencies and I love the urgency of it. And not only this, but there’s no feeling quite to describe seeing the results of my work, I think that’s what PR is all about. (Journalists, you should know us PRs do a mini super happy dance whenever you cover our stories).
Everything you do or say is PR.
I chose my Business & PR course at university without really knowing what to expect, but three years in I can confidently say I couldn’t have made a better choice. I know I’ve chosen a career in which I’ll never be bored and for me, that is everything.
And a bit about me
Writing is, and always has been an utmost passion of mine, so you can expect a lot of ramblings on this blog. One thing I can promise you is that you’ll never be short of posts from me, I love to write and if anything, you’ll be wanting to shut me up. (Hey I’ve been chatting away on this site for 2 years now, and I’ve still not tired of things to say).
I am 21-year-old Digital PR & Outreach Executive at Tecmark in Manchester. A black country girl living up north – I backed my bags to see the city, and I’ve never looked back.
All of my contact details can be found on my contact page, and you can get through to my social media through the links on my home page – I’d love to hear from you. (Be it a collab opportunity, comments or even just a hello! Meeting new people is great.)
Thank you for following me throughout my PR journey, and throughout all my other journeys along the way. I’ll leave you with one of my favourite quotes and one that resides with me every day to inspire me to be the best I can always be.
It’s never too late to be who you could have been.
