Shame.. If it was an Arsenal blog I would have spread the word
It is very well written though! Do you write as a profession?

Oh no, not an Arsenal fan! Anything but an Arsenal fan! lol
And thanks for that, I appreciate it! For a living? Noooo, I'm yet to leave secondary school! I'm only in yr 11... I wouldn't mind becoming a Sports Journalist though...

Haha! Well you have a good talent for words then! Make sure you take all your English subjects etc then! I want to become a fashion journalist but didnt realise until last year so I've picked all the wrong subjects I'll get there though

It doesn't tend to matter what subject you do for journalism, I have just finished a journalism degree but it tends to matter more on what experience you have and how much you can hold out through the *****yness of some people where you get any internships.

So you reckon I'd be able to find a job in journalism after doing German at university?

Yeah, languages are always good. Of course it'll be hard but it's hard regardless- you may find it harder to get internships straight away at fashion magazines etc but start low and you'll be fine. Apparently parenting magazines are a pretty easy starting place.

I need to find a job myself now.

Thanks for the advice! And good luck with the job hunting!

Yep, I decided to take English literature though... Not sure whether Lang & Lit would be better though...
What subjects did you take?

I took German, Geography, Maths & Chemistry

I'm desperately trying to do outside work for online magazines etc to try and get my journalism portfolio up but it's hard with all the exams I have at the moment!

I'm sure you'll be fine with German and Geography! Geog because it's fairly analytical, they'll like that.
As for a portfolio, start that in the summer! It's only a couple of weeks away! Helps if you know someone, or a friend of a friend (which I don't I'm afraid). Good luck with that and your exams, anyway!

Just realised that this was filed under Fashion and Beauty btw... Ooops!

I am trying to revamp it, make it less girly (it's too pink) and make it more mature and professional/serious (if that makes sense). Everytime I go to add a new background, it only fits half the page! :-/ I also want to add favourite blogs on the side.

I just want to make my blog abit more friendly and less bare :-/.

Do you select 'tile background' (or something) in template designer? This'll mean that it doesn't just take up half the page.
