Quick Question, 9 May 2017

Hello hello, it’s that time again! The Quick Question- I’m gonna get to know you, you are gonna get to know me, and hopefully we all have a little fun. Sometimes blogging can be a little distancing, because I’m writing it but I’ve no idea how you are reading and interpreting it. The little things are what make life what it is, and this little thing is more important than some people might think…

Mystery Blogger Award

This post is due to Charlotte and her lovely nomination for the Mystery Blogger Award! I particularly love this award given my fascination with mysteries- I’m hoping that I can still maintain an air of mystery throughout my life. (“Was she a professional cookie maker? Do dogs seek her out? Can she really cartwheel through the snow?” These are all questions I hope people will ask about me.)

Top Instagram Posts, April 2017

Now that I am spending a decent amount of time and effort on Instagram and I’m slowly connecting with people, I thought I would do a monthly round up of the most popular posts on my Instagram account! Although most of the pictures I post are related to the blog post of that day, I will try to give a little more background into the image itself. This was supposed to be the top five pictures but of course there was a three way tie in the fourth spot, so you get six! And if you would like to connect on Instagram, please leave your Instagram handle in the comments!

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. I’m not sure if it’s too meta or if people simply don’t like writing about blogging itself, but I do think it’s pretty interesting. This is a question that I hadn’t considered until a few days ago:

4 Things I Have Learned From Blogging

I’ve been blogging for over two years now. I know that I’m fairly small and insignificant in the world of blogging, but if nothing else I’ve learned a few things along the way. I don’t proclaim to be some sort of blogging guru- I certainly make mistakes regularly- but I hope that today’s post is helpful in looking at your own blog in some way! These are the big lessons that I have learned from 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….
