130. #Blogger Problems

I can’t be the only one.

  1. Spend three hours writing a post. 3 likes. Spend 20 minutes writing a post. 20 likes.
  2. Getting annoyed because the WordPress reader preview ends just before the part where your post gets interesting.
  3. Spend ages writing a post but decide not to publish that day. Re-read the next day and decide it’s crap.
  4. Write what you think is an amazing post only to read one by someone else on the same topic that is miles better than your own.
  5. Write an absolutely fabulous post. 2 likes. Read one on the same topic by someone else that’s not as entertaining as yours. 50 likes.
  6. Spend half an hour writing a post. Spend the next hour on formatting and deciding which images should accompany it.
  7. Write an awesome post but can’t for the life of you come up with a good enough title for it.
  8. Your post was viewed 20 times. No-one liked it.
  9. Asking a question to your readers in your post. No-one replies.
  10. You want to rant about someone but then realise you can’t because they read your blog.
  11. Always getting lots of ideas for posts when you have no time to write and then getting writer’s block when you do finally have time.
  12. Trying to avoid this: ‘Heyy how was the party/internship/cool experience?’ ‘Read my blog’.

109. Oooh an award!

I’d like to share some good news with you guys; I’ve been awarded the Versatile Blogger award by Joe at Confessions of a Technophile and George from [insertnamehere], both of which are awesome blogs (check them out!). Thank you for nominating me *runs around in circles*. It made me feel very happy and warm inside!

Similar to the Liebster award there are a few steps to this:

  • Thank the person who nominated you.
  • Put the Versatile blogger badge on your blog.
  • Spread the love and nominate 15 other people.
  • Post 7 facts about yourself

Righty I’m going to start with the 7 facts. These really are random.

  1. I have had crushes on animated characters including Yu-Gi (the Pharoah not the kid) and Flynn Rider from Tangled. I think there’s something about the hair…
  2. When I was a toddler I point blank refused to drink my milk unless it was in a big bottle and filled right to the top. Quite a madam at even a young age…
  3. I would like to be buried with my glasses on.
  4. I dance in empty elevators every opportunity I get.
  5. One week in secondary school there were cameramen filming some shots for a promo video to be shown on open evenings. I was filmed cooking an omelette but when I flipped it I got nervous and it broke (and I looked horrifed). Yeah they put that shot in the video. I’d say several thousand parents have laughed at my cooking incompetency since.
  6. I absolutely despise red varnish. It makes me think of hookers.
  7. One of my uncles once lifted me from my forearms and I dislocated my elbow. My dad told me put some ice on it. We only went to the hospital 2 hours later.

And my nominees are:

Emmajeanss: Insightful, interesting posts with a health dose of humour. Deffo ones for the girls!

Khinjarsi: a fellow university go-er and Neopet-er! She talks about uni, diets, jobs, friends and life. Sounds versatile to me!

Mitten’s Kittens: a blog about writing, jobs, and books with lots of thought provoking articles in between!

The Thought Buffet: random, brutally honest and amusing!

BULLSHiT: posts from several people on an array of topics. Really fun read!

The scribbling train: the scribbles and thoughts of an English Lit student on things from books to make-up!

The Gratitudenist: an almost eclectic mix of posts but that’s what keeps this blog fresh!

We Can Always Dance Tomorrow: a blog about music, being a woman and life!

I’d also like to make a special mention to  Omnia and Ibtehaal because they both have awesome blogs too but they seem to be on hiatus 😦

I know this isn’t 15 but I’d rather nominate blogs that I can actually really really like than add some that I don’t know very well. I’ll post on all of your about pages tomorrow.

For now I must sleep!

Thank youuuuuuuu
