As you may have seen on Instagram, I recently graduated from college. Since so much of my blogging journey has centred on being a “college blogger,” a life update (and blog update!) seems to be in order.
First of all, the life update, a bit of what’s next for me, personally and professionally, outside of For the Sake of Good Taste:
If you were following along on Twitter or our other social media challenge, you already know that I was applying to several grad schools back in the UK. In the end, I only applied to my top choice, Bath Spa University (if you’ve read our Traveller’s Guide to Bath or have seen my references to my study abroad programme in the city, you’ll understand).
I did, in fact, receive an offer to enroll in their Creative Writing masters programme this fall, but, after hours of consideration, I’ve decided to decline.
While I won’t be getting my masters right now, I fully intend to keep writing in the meantime! I’m currently working on a second and third chapbook (have you got your copy of Mistakes Were Made yet? Be sure to check it out before the next two are released!), as well as a novel and biography. I’ve been regularly submitting poems to literary magazines as well, so stay tuned for updates on potential publications!
I’ll also continue to take on freelance writing and editing projects! Check out my writing website if you’re interested in these services.
I’ve also taken on a job as a transcriptionist, which has proven to be pretty amazing. It’s entirely remote, the hours are flexible, and the pay is excellent. I can’t complain!
So, what does all of this mean for the blog?
Have no fear: you’ll see little to no major changes to the blog as I start my postgrad life. I’ve been transitioning the site from “college blog” to “lifestyle blog” since we first moved to For the Sake of Good Taste, so any remaining transition should be painless.
What this does mean, though, is that I have the flexibility to blog regularly once again. Despite a plethora of unrelated projects, blogging is a priority once more! From new content to exciting collaborations, I have lots planned for the coming months, so keep an eye out and make sure you’ve signed up for our mailing list for updates.
As always, thank you all for following along and for supporting For the Sake of Good Taste! I’m eternally grateful for our amazing readers and followers.
