The Edit’s Media Week kicked off on Monday with two stylish guest speakers from the fashion blogging and magazine industry. Wendy Gilmour, from Glasgow’s West End gave a detailed and funny chat about the most important things to do when blogging, and how she turned fashion and lifestyle blog Thankfifi.com into the huge success it is today.

Nadine Hawkins compiled a humorous but very helpful list of ‘dos and don’ts’ for those of us who are wanting to get into the magazine industry. Apparently one student got their mum to phone up and apply for a work experience placement for her – did this person really think they would get a placement? She was genuine and gave lots of helpful advice and information about what goes into the running and organisation of a magazine.

A big thank you goes out to Wendy, Nadine and everyone who has come along to the Media Week chats so far – hope to see more of you there tomorrow!
