I am a student in my final year of a Master of Psychology and currently taking time away from my thesis (which is due in 17 days) to work on my Blogcademy scholarship application instead! I was unable to afford a ticket to the now sold out workshop in Melbourne, which is why I am applying for a scholarship place instead.
So without further ado, here is my entry....
Dear Gala, Shauna and Kat,
I would love an opportunity to attend your Blogcademy workshop in Melbourne because I am re-launching my blog and online business (selling my handmade jewellery and accessories). I love to write about things I am passionate about and share my art and creations with others. I am absolutely clueless about the techniques and skills needed to build a successful blog and business and I think I would benefit greatly from learning the tricks of the trade from three hard working ladies who are currently living the blogging dream. The three of you have such a strong vision for what can make an ordinary blog go from fine to FABULOUS, and that's exactly the type of guidance I need need to make my blogging dream a reality.
Since I will be using my blog to launch my accessory business 'Kyriake's Kaboodle', I thought, what better way is there to start than by making you all a Headmistress bracelet? It is made with lettering and rose-quartz beads to chanel all that radical Blogcademy love!
I also wrote you a love letter to explain my reasoning behind the choice...
I had so much fun painting, making and creating this for you, and if anything it just reminded me of how passionate I am about it all. I really would be so grateful for an opportunity to attend, and if I do attend I'd be happy to bring along some button bracelets to pop into your goody bags for the other Blogcadettes too!
My fingers and toes are crossed!
Lots of love and glitter,
