What it’s Like to be… an SEO Strategy Lead


I’ve been doing a lot of thinking recently about what I want to be when I grow up* and I realised I really enjoyed making my How To Get A Job series last year – and that recruitment is a pretty interesting subject.

With this in mind, I wanted to go a little further down this rabbit hole and look into the different areas of work people can go into. I had a fairly rural upbringing and when I was a kid, everyone’s parents were very basic jobs – teachers, secretaries, police officers etc. I look at my friends now and realise that I have so many people doing really amazing things, so I decided to question them!

Lazy Sunday Links Oct 8th

I had Friday night set out to write this, but I went home from work with a headcold, then slept for the rest of the day. On Saturday I was at a friend’s wedding and today I’ve been on a date – it’s been non-stop!

I hope you have some time for these fresh linkies though!

Let’s linkie

Amanda is training to be a doula – if you know any new mothers, please send them her way!

Ollie tries to create Cambridge’s best burger (though it’s not veggie so it can’t go on my list).

Loving Lizzie’s #OnePerfectThing right now!

I want to get an iPhone so I can buy ALL the Skinny Dip cases. They even have a PSL range now!!!!

Anyone want to go to Monaco with me?

Or Northern Ireland?

Some great advice about starting a job when you have anxiety.

Have an awesome rest of Sunday!

Books: The Fox of Richmond Park

Years ago, when we were about 11, I reached behind Kate‘s rows of Animal Ark books to find a series of books she’d written herself. I can’t remember many of them but I know that one was called “What Sounds Do Giraffes Make”.

It was an amazing story, as all stories written by 11 year olds are.

Fast forward to us being adults, and I watch in awe as Kate leaves her full time job to write a book – crowdfunding it all the way. The book she wrote is The Fox of Richmond Park. [Read more…]

Friday Links September 29th

It’s back to my busy work life, as the events calendar at work is now in full swing, and school events are happening at least a couple of times a week. It means that I’m back to flat shoes that I can run around a school in, and soft trousers that allow me to move about when I teach. It’s cheaper than going to a gym.

Tomorrow I’ll be going to Leeds to the Bloggers’ Blogging Awards, in which I was a judge. I’m really looking forward to hanging out with some of my favourite bloggers and meeting them in real life – though I’m quite nervous as well!

Let’s linkie!

If like me you have too much month at the end of your money, you might want to check out some of these money apps. (I’ve just downloaded an Andoid version of Mint – will be testing it out!)

Sarah talks about going on Weight Watchers (I really want to join Slimming World to see how that helps me lose weight as well)

Slightly less diet-friendly is this Toblerone icecream

My Pinterest currently looks like October has exploded all over it, but if you would like some Autumn on your Insta feed as well, here are some amazing feeds to follow.

A very interesting Atlantic piece about women bullying each other in the workplace.

Amanda is going to a plant-based diet now and I would love to learn from her.

As someone who blogs alongside a very busy job, I related so much to this post about juggling the two.

There’s some awesome things going on in October in London.

Claire is showing us her pen obsession – and has a fab giveaway!

Who wants to treat me to a meal here for my birthday (next week!!!)

I’ll leave you with the funniest thing I have seen all week. Enjoy!
