Best blogs on campus
And you spend your spare time reading The Tab
When it comes to the art of blogging Leeds isn’t too shabby, with most of our uni’s brightest and best feeling the need to constantly update their followers on their trendy outfits or the hottest spots to grab a fluffed up cappucino or vegan cupcake.
Our worth is now based on how many likes a picture rakes in or on our choice of filter – and some are much better than others. We went on a quest to find the best bloggers on campus, so you can work out what you’re missing.
