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 […]

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.

5 reasons why getting ‘Freshly Pressed’ isn’t ‘all that’

And so, the opposing arguments…. Time. It already takes me a very long time to get through the, oooooh, ten comments I get a day and what with trying to figure out why I’ve approved a comment but can’t comment on it yet or why sometimes I comment as ‘holly’ and sometimes ‘momentsnotmemories’ or why […]

5 things I wish I’d known about before Summer 2012

Seinfeld. Need I say more? Probably actually. For those of you yet to discover the delights of this old-fashioned and therefore one hundred per cent more funny than anything more recent sitcom, it is about a group of four friends, three men and a woman. She provides us with just enough oestrogen for my liking. (Personally, I always […]
