This blog post containing tweets and analysis is in regards to Live-tweeting exercises I have been participating in for the last 4 weeks for my Future Cultures class (BCM325).

#BCM325 Peer Comments: A Reflection

As a part of my studies in Future Cultures (BCM325) we are required to analyse and comment on our peers’ pitches for the major project. (You can see my own pitch here.)

Reflecting on BCM313- The Future of Work

We now live in an attention-based economy. Mark Manson Information is increasingly limitless and convenient to access, but our time and attention is not.

Narrowing it down & finding my field site!

In my last post ‘My media niche: Skincare, Makeup and TikTok!‘, I realised that the media niche I want to learn more about is the beauty community on TikTok. However, this niche is still super broad! There is all different kinds of content such as makeup tutorials, skincare journeys, product reviews, there’s even a micro-niche knownContinue reading “Narrowing it down & finding my field site!”

My media niche: Skincare, Makeup and TikTok?
