The WordPress.com stats helper monkeys prepared a 2015 annual report for this blog.

Here’s an excerpt:

Elusiveness…a state of mind!

Recently I was described by a colleague as being elusive, (after a search, Google spouted out a load of definitions but the top two were: difficult to find/catch or track down; preferring or living in solitude and anonymity). Not sure if it fits the bill but, what happened next was that I thought about this blog which to be honest I hadn’t done in months and I took it as a sign… 🙂

I know this post is a bit random, but what am I trying to say here, is that as much as I love the time I spent away from the internet I have missed writing and blogging.

Just to show how happy I’m glad to be back, here’s an image of the planet Pluto which I’m sure everyone has seen by now.

Yo, Pluto!

Yo, Pluto!

Adios, until next time…

A new direction for Najmah Writes

Hey hey!

It’s a quick update but firstly, I’m extremely sorry that I have been away for months and I know no amount of excuses can cover it. But I have some very exciting news to share with all of you.

After months of contemplating, I’m so so happy to announce that my blog is now . . . najmahwrites.com. 🙂

Najmah Writes

najmahwrites.com

Don’t ask me why Najmah Writes…(cos I know, I haven’t been doing a whole lot of writing in the last few months), but to be honest that was the only one that stuck out from the rest!

Anyway, keep a look out as there will many changes coming in the next few weeks which I’m pretty psyched about. Leave your comments, feedback on the new site, I would love to read them.

Thank you!

The year that was 2013…

Hey hey!

Bye bye 2013, Welcome 2014!

I hope you have had a wonderful Christmas but in a few short hours we’ll all be saying goodbye to 2013 and welcome to 2014!

Personally for me, this past year has whizzed by. It feels like yesterday when I was stressing over my dissertation, literally worrying myself sick whether it would EVER get finished on time? Now I have graduated, which still seems unreal to me sometimes. One promise I have made to myself, is that travelling will definitely be on the agenda next year; either in the UK or going abroad.

Graduation, like for many other graduates was a huge deal for me, it meant I would now be known as a qualified journalist.

Graduation 2013As the event was taking place in the evening, I remember taking all morning to get ready. So while hobbling on my heels, being constantly irritated by the robes and hoping I wouldn’t become the laughing stock of the ceremony by tripping or falling over, especially in front of my family and friends. I finally graduated. Then with the endless clapping it was over, like a blink of an eye. It was quite emotional at the time; as I was taking away four years of memories with me but I wouldn’t change anything for the world

Over the summer I worked on the Crimestoppers Cycle Theft Campaign with a group of Criminology students; we organised a event where we gave out information to prevent cycles from being stolen in the Peterborough area. I took the PR role of the team. I wrote press releases for the event, became active on social media wesbites such as Facebook and Twitter to spread the word, which received good response. We ended up winning the ‘Crimestopper of the Month’ award, which was awesome!

All in all this year has definitely been great. Here’s hoping that 2014 will bring more opportunities and in general be bigger and better.

I’ll be spending the last day of 2013 with my family, it certainly beats being out in the cold!

So long 2013, you were great. Bring on 2014, I’m ready…:)

HAPPY NEW YEAR!
