The (Potential) Return Of The Vlogger

The (Potential) Return Of The Vlogger

I haven’t uploaded a vlog since I tried about my ‘Medievalist Miriam‘ idea in May or June of last year. I wanted to. I filmed a couple, including a room tour of my college room this year because those have been popular in the past, mainly around Newnham applicants and offer-holders who wanted to know more about the college.

Regular blog readers will have noticed one of my frequent commenters. She used to comment under the name of Spook, and now she’s Charley R, but whatever she’s known as, she’s still the same person! I met Spook, or Charley, on the writing website Protagonize in September of 2009. I joined at the beginning of August, she at the end, and through collaborating on a story entitled the Protagonize Bus, we became friends. We’ve got to the point where we trust…
