Lovely blogs, the lovely bloggers and even lovelier blog-readers…

Forget Freshly Pressed. I prefer getting Awards! They are given by actual other bloggers who know what they’re  doing, enjoy what they’re doing and actually read your blog! They show that you have perseverance; a blog that someone keeps coming back to. They show appreciation. They show hard work. This is my second ever award […]

Apologies…Olympics…You wing it, you win it :)

First and foremost I want to apologise for the complete lack of posting in recent times. It has been exactly…nine days since I last posted :O , and, although I’m sure that probably hasn’t impacted on your life too much, I am sorry. It sucks when you follow a blog and that bloggee fails to […]

post for blogs: patto1992

Found this blog during Euro’s 2012, GREAT. Who? patto1992 What? It’s a blog about many things but mainly centred on football and especially transfers. When? Every other day or so. Sometimes every day. Sometimes every three days. Where? http://www.patto1992.wordpress.com Why? I like it because of the detailed analyses of players, matches and clubs with no […]

What is wrong with these monolingual English people?!

FYI- I am sorry if this is rushed and full of mistakes, I wrote it in an angered state after readin THIS absymal article.   Last October, I did a language/culture exchange trip to Santander in Spain. It was A-MA-ZING😀 I loved every minute of it. Firstly, the weather was good. Secondly the people were nice […]

post for blogs: LScott Poetry

I love reading these poems for a quick happiness pick-me-up Who? LScott Poetry What? A blog about, you guessed it, poetry! When? Every other day, approximately.

The Big Issue costs £2.50…do you pay for the paper or the face?

Today, I bought the big issue for the first time. Partly to read something on the bus. Partly to look at a different type of journalism. Was it worth my £2.50? Yes. One hundred percent. Will I buy it every week from now on? Yes. One hundred percent. Why? Did I enjoy it? Yes. It’s […]

My version of Freshly Pressed :D

Many people blog about how they desperately wants to be Freshly Pressed. Being Freshly Pressed brings more traffic to your site, more comments, more followers, and, ultimately, your ‘popularity’ increases. But, in all honesty, most of us will never get Freshly Pressed. “WHY NOT?!?!” I hear you scream. It’s not because we’re not good bloggers. […]

5 things to know before you begin any work experience

Working in an office is not like working in the office. It will (I guarantee) be boring at some points, if not all points. The people there will not be insane/unsociable rejects of normal society. They will be normal people with their own friends and their own lives; not there to make your work experience […]

Catching Fire, Suzanne Collins

But this time, they are more prepared and, it appears, the enemy is no longer other contestants […]
