Rant: Blogging Pet Peeves

I’m going to burn in blogger hell for this post, but it’s finally time I get it out there. My gripes with several blogging practices are certainly in the minority, as countless bloggers do all of these things- huge bloggers who will have more new followers in week than I will ever have in my life- but they turn me off of blogs pretty quickly. So. if you aren’t interested in hearing blogging gripes, feel free to take a day off and check back in tomorrow! If you are, read on…

Quick Question, 25 April 2017

This week’s Quick Question is all about what we do- blogging, to carry on from my post yesterday! I find that a lot of people don’t often discuss blogging.

Way Back When Dinosaurs Roamed My Blog…

The very wonderful Charlotte has nominated me to travel back in time and bring back my very post on the blog! At first I had a slight panic attack- I don’t think that any of us really love going back to the beginnings of our blogs, when we knew nothing and tried out everything and blogged a million times a day. (I’m guilty of that in the first few months, without a doubt- why did I think that people would come to a blog three different times in the same day?!?) So, without any further waiting, here are my beginnings….
