The Nili Pod: News Headlines

Nia's Blogging and Vlogging Website

Photo of newsreader reading the newsThis is one of my favourite features, where I trawl through the week's newspapers and online news websites, looking for the most interesting headlines that I can write about.

I particularly like entertainment news and 'nice' gossip, keeping an eye out for things that I'd like to hear about myself. There is never a shortage of newsworthy articles and funny 'non-stories' to discuss, and so it is often a case of having too many for the website, so I try to choose only the very best to write and chat about.
