About

Hi everyone

My name is Rhian Westbury and this here is my little hub of the internet dedicated to my world. I am a Creative Writing graduate from Watford (Yes, where the Harry Potter studios are!) and I graduated five years ago from Brunel University in London. I’ve always loved writing but it was just after leaving uni that my love blossomed, it’s definitely more enjoyable when you’re not being forced to do it for grades!
Having always said to my parents that I wanted to be author (even at the ripe age of five!) I have always written, although it took a while for me to realise the scope of choice to write online. When I left university I started writing for every online website that would have me which led to me writing for Dead Press, Hit The Floor, Bring The Noise, Stencil Magazine, Ramzine, Propaganda blog, Onset Music and Live The Scene at the same time.
During my time with these sites I got some fantastic opportunities, I got to interview and meet bands and attend shows which made me realise that music journalism was exactly what I wanted to do. After stepping down from some publications I eventually chose to focus all of my attention on one publication from June 2013.

That leads us to today where I am the current Editor at Hit The Floors sister rock site Mosh mosh.hitthefloor.com and I couldn’t be prouder to be part of the team. The website has developed and grown almost beyond recognition. It’s sometimes a wonder I get any time to sleep, but I’ve had so many fantastic opportunities and genuinely work with some of the best people so it’s all worth it. Aside from my musical endeavours I am a full-time SEO and Content Marketing Assistant after I finally made the jump out of retail management (Hello weekends and bank holidays!) And it was the best decision I made, yes I do miss the people I worked with and the excitement of helping someone choose an engagement ring but marketing was a fantastic move for me.

In my spare time to earn some extra pennies I am a Freelance Copywriter writing across a range of topics from product descriptions, retail blogs and commercial B2B articles to blog writing for music and beauty websites. I have written for a large range of topics, just check out my portfolio. I love a challenge and will undertake anything thrown at me.

Life isn’t all about work, work, work and I do love to catch up with friends and family, eat out, watch movies (especially if they’re directed by Tim Burton or feature superheroes), read, crawl through mud while doing obstacle course runs and go shopping.

This blog is just an outlet for everything that interests me and some of the things I get up to in my life from fitness and travel to music and beauty.
