It's Fresher's Week here at Bangor University, but luckily I'm living in a returners hall this year, so it's lovely and quiet, filled with third years who are concentrating on their dissertations. I moved back to university on Saturday and have spent my time since then catching up with friends and preparing for the Fresher's Fair, where all the clubs and societies Bangor has to offer come together to attract new members. This year, the Bangor Craft and Sewing Society has gone all out - I spent my Sunday putting together key-rings and cutting out 300 flyers!
As Publicity Officer for the society, my main job is to advertise what we're about and try to draw in new faces. Last year, I made flyers to advertise our main events, set up a Facebook page and ordered society hoodies; this year, however, I want to do more, starting with setting up a society blog!
The blog, 'Sew What?', is in its infancy at the moment, but over the course of this academic year I'm hoping to develop it and include weekly workshop updates, tutorials and posts from guest bloggers. Although the blog is primarily targeted at students, I'm hoping that the content will be relevant and accessible enough to attract readers from outside the Craft and Sewing Society. If you're interested in keeping up with any society news or looking out for the odd crafting tutorial, then head on over there and please do feel free to give us a follow on Bloglovin' or Google+.
I'm only aiming to put up a post or two a week, so you won't be totally spammed - the main purpose of the blog is to allow us to connect with members of the society who don't have the time to attend weekly workshops, and give us a platform through which to easily share information about the society.
I hope you all have a fantastic week and thank you, as always, for taking the time to read,
