Despite the fact I wrote a post about how bloggers should do whatever the hell they want, listen to no one, rock to the beat of their own drum and all that, there’s no denying that some things on Twitter are just a no-go. Like, it’s not about “doing whatever you want” anymore, it’s simply about not being a annoying twit. And Twitter seems to be the main place where the twits of the world congregate. Where blogging is concerned, Twitter can be an exceptionally effective tool for growing your blog, making friends, getting involved and gaining opportunities. But at the end of the day, none of us want to follow a twit do we?
We all want to be the very best like no one ever was (please tell me in the comments if you know where this line is from) and it’s super difficult to do that in blogging when there’s tens of thousands of other bloggers around you all trying to be the best too. But in order to be a good blogger, you need to follow the rules and stick to the guidelines. Here is a small list of things that will turn you from an ‘alright’ blogger to a bloody good one!
You’ve seen the blog posts and you’ve seen the tweets and you’ll know that the blogging world is a very exclusive and complicated place. We all want apart of it and we all try and portray it like it’s the best thing ever. There’s plenty of misconceptions about the blogging world and the bloggers within in and I’m here to put the record straight. Here are some things that bloggers don’t actually tell you…
I don’t know about the rest of the world but here in Britain, we are known for notoriously apologising. Starting our sentences with, “Sorry but…”, even inanimate objects – you name it, we’ve apologied for it. Often, for absolutely no reason what-so-ever. I am guilty of this for sure – I apologise for breathing sometimes but why do we feel the need to apologise relentlessly for things we do not need to be sorry for? Whoever you are and wherever you are in the world, here are 7 things you never, ever have to apologise for (even though you and I both know we do)
You know lately, I’ve been feeling out of touch with the human world. Like, no offence mum if you’re reading this but humans just aren’t doing it for me at the moment and I’d much rather spend my time alone, in peace and solitude, with just my dog for company because let’s face it, dogs are better than humans. Humans suck, actually. And these are my reasons why I do, in fact, prefer dogs to humans.
In case you missed the spoiler alert in the title, you might not wanna continue through this post if you plan on watching or are in the middle of watching Stranger Things. Some spoilers may be included in the points I’m going to make. Stranger Things has taken over TV screens, laptops and iPhones all over the globe since its release on Netflix. Sci-Fi combined with Drama combined with Horror combined with a kick-ass Winona Ryder made for a show which gripped the lives of millions. Mine included. Having just finished the first (and currently only) season and not quite knowing what to do with myself or where I go from here until season 2 is released, I decided to share with you the thoughts I had during my time watching Stranger Things.
A good while ago now, I wrote this post about things that irritate me. I was feeling particularly uhm, irritable let’s say (damn hormones) and as I mentioned in the beginning of that post, I wanted to channel my annoyance in a healthy way. So instead of punching someone, I wrote a blog post. Today, I’m doing the same because once again, I was feeling particularly irritable (that happens, usually once a month. It’s called periods, look it up) and I have a whole lovely jubbly new set of things that really, royally irritate the living crap out of me.
I’ve seen a few YouTuber’s do this lately (yeah, I know, I’m like totes in YouTuber’s now) and thought it would be a laugh to do myself (but blog format obviously, videos scare me). I used to be an avid Insta user. Like, one of those super annoying ones that would do hundreds of “shout out for shout outs” and be obsessed with followers. You know the kinda dickhead I mean and I love going over my old Instagram photos and crying into a slice of pizza at how much of an idiot I was. So I thought I’d share that with you, so gather up all your pity while I react to my old Instagram photos.
Another leg shot
There are definitely some topics that are considered ‘taboo’ in the blogosphere. Little things that we don’t like to admit – to ourselves or others – but we all know are true. Clichés and opinions we like to keep to ourselves but today I want to share with you 20, very honest things I’ve thought about as a blogger.
If you ever need to look for a real-life Elsa, you need look no further. I am the human equivalent in that I love the cold. Like seriously, love it. So naturally, I have a bit of a freak-out every time summer comes around and aside from all of the BBQ’s, there’s not a single thing I like about it. Here is my list of 15 reasons why I hate summer which you can read whilst I hibernate until October.
