Daily Star niche stories 18/06- 22/06

Personal update: For the past three months, I have been working with the Daily Star as a niche writer. Not sure what it means?

To sum up: I write news stories on topics that are relevant to websites that are affiliated with the Daily Star and its parent companies.

This means that most of the articles I write are based around four topics-

  • death and funerals
  • Maths and tutoring
  • Travel
  • Dogs

At first I wasn’t sure how to share these stories the 6-8 stories that I write on a daily basis. I don’t want my blog to only be about the stuff I write for the Daily Star, which is why it makes sense to compiled a bunch of articles into one post and share them.

With that said, if there’s any stories I found particularly interesting, I will definitely share them individually as a separate post.

So here we go:
