Blog Chat Tuesday- Becky Lees

Good Morning, Beauties. How are we?

It's that time of the week again, so flick the kettle on and get comfortable as I catch up with another fellow blogger.



This week I'm chatting with the beautiful, smart and super hard working: Becky Lees


1. Can you tell me a bit about yourself?

My name is Becky Lees, 23 years old, postgraduate student and work at the University of Chester. When I am not working 9-5, or studying you can usually find me hidden in the coves of a coffee shop with my kindle or a book fresh from Waterstones, deep in thought, despair or laughter (Depending on the book I am reading). 


2. Can you tell me a little about your blog? (i.e. whats it about, how did it get started etc?)

My blog is an eclectic mix of posts previously used for work at Chester Students’ Union such as Mental Health and You, conference speeches and information for students. As well as assessment for my MA such as Benefit Street: An ethical minefield? And Is the Sun about to set on page 3? And finally there are also personal reflections on my passions in life which are; my family, education and community work. 


3. What's your favourite thing about blogging?

Reflection. Exploration. Discussion. Discovery. Creativity. Community. 


4. What's your least favourite thing?

I often set out to write a ‘short’ straight to the point blog about a particular issue, 3 days and 3,000 words later I have finally made my point! 


5. If you could write any other type of blog what would it be?

A blog where I was paid to travel the world and reflect upon the adventures. 


6. Do you have any blogs that you'd recommend?

The brilliant Laura’s blog of course! Twentea Something *she's the sweetest!!!* 


7. What three things would you say to wannabe bloggers?

Do it – what have you got to lose (apart from perhaps, an acrylic nail if you are really getting into it!)

Say what you think and be what you say – Do not be scared of using your voice to make a change. 

Don’t do it for the likes, shares and money; do it for the love and the other things will come. 

Don’t be a keyboard warrior – be open minded to other people’s views – you never know, you may 

learn something!

Don’t be afraid of blogging about subjects you are not entirely swotted up on! To know allows you to 

grow. 


8. Anything else you'd like to add. 

Keep in mind that your online footprint will be part of your past, present and future so tread carefully.


Thank you so much for joining me, Becky! Especially at a very busy university time! I love the phrase "keyboard Warrior" and the reminder to be careful about our online footprint! 

What advice would you give to wannabe bloggers?
