So, if you have been following my #BCM241 blog posts, you would have noticed I was dancing around my media niche, unsure of where to head exactly.
I knew my interest lays with mental health. I was on the pursuit for self-development, but found that this, is quite a large and A complexed media ‘niche’. I needed to narrow it down, yet again.
So, now we have it. Mindfulness.
I can now confidently say I know what my media niche is. How nice.
Below is my video pitch for the BCM241 research project.
Hopefully your standards were low. I can only improve from here?
In the pitch video I didn’t expand on my field site so much. Essentially, my field site consists of social media platforms such as Facebook, Instagram, YouTube and Twitter. However, due to time restrictions, my main focus will be on Instagram, as this is what I spend majority of my time on in comparison to the other platforms. Plus, I feel people similar to me with the same interest would be too.
The Urban list identified 9 of the best mindfulness podcasts to listen to in which I will jump on. I mentioned in my pitch that I will be engaging in mindfulness activities with the applications of Headspace, Smiling Mind and Calm. No, I will not be making these applications compete for my approval. It is essentially to immerse myself in the culture of Mindfulness.
For the Digital Artifact (DA) I aim to create a personal narrative in the form of a creative blog. I would like to incorporate my creative design skills in the blog, such as making digital art collages and graphics. The DA will include relevant links to resources and profiles that I found to stand out in the field of mindfulness.
Thank you for reading.
