In life there are some things you can’t control but there are plenty of things you can.
Here are a few below to digest
How honest you are
Who your friends are
What books you read
How often you exercise
What food you eat
What risks you take
How kind you are
How often you say I love you
How often you say thank you
How you express your feelings
Whether or not you ask for help
How many times a day you smile
The amount of effort you put into things
How much money you spend
How much time you spend worrying
How often you think about the past
Whether you judge someone or not
Whether to try again
How to appreciate the things you do have
I hope this gives you some food for thought
Til next time
Some of us just write a blog post and post it and aren’t overly fussed about how it does or who it’s inspired.
However the majority of us do, as it shows how you grow in your journey of blogging.
So I thought about the types of things we all could do throughout the month to stay ahead of ourselves.
– Publish new blog post
– Respond to comments
– Ensure all links in post work correctly
– Comment on 5-10 peoples blog posts
– Browse Internet for inspiration
– Promote on all your social media platforms
– Check and respond to ant emails / DMs you have
– Plan and start writing your next post
– Make mind maps or bullet points for future posts
– Use Pinterest to get ideas
– Take photographs, find graphics and quotes to use in your blog posts.
– Continue to share your posts over on your socials but don’t over do it… You don’t want to appear annoying.
– Have a evaluation of how your blog is performing, print out the insights and see which ones your readers are most interested in
– Improve on things in your blog that you spot isn’t working so great, maybe your schedule of the days you post or the type of content you put out.
– Look at the theme and think do you still love it, because if you don’t… It needs to change.
I could go on and on but those were just a few pointers.
The most important thing is to interact with your readers in your blog post, the comments and then in their blog posts too. Be a loyal follower 🌸
So I bought my laptop in October 2017 and for about 3 months it looked pretty boring on the outside.
For those wondering it’s an Asus Transformer Mini.
So according to my photo album in January 2018 I decided to jazz it up a bit with some stickers I’d found on Google and Pinterest.
It was very much based on social media, blogging, and of course Netflix.
I loved it but after 22 months it started to peel a little and it just didn’t look pretty to me anymore.
So I got some more self adhesive photo paper and this is what it looks like as of today
I love my chick flicks, music, sleep, YouTube, I own a cactus, love a good quote and my cute little niece is called Daisy so that’s why they are on there.
It’s nice to add a bit of character and a personal touch to things.
after you’ve had a laugh at my drawing I wanted just a little catch up with you all.
You may have noticed by the look of my blog that I’ve given it a little makeover
Click here after reading and you’ll see what I mean
Seeing the home page you will see a little intro in my own little style, a sneak at my other social media posts and I let you know how you find my other posts whether you are on a phone or computer.
I want to make my blog as informative yet fun.
You know I love to write so I will be posting whenever I get inspired to.
I appreciate each and every one of you who take the time to read my blog.

As a blogger there are always the essentials you need other than WiFi 🙈
So first of all I get my whiteboard out, think about which category I want to touch on, and then I mind map and see what I can come up with.
I have my notepad handy for list-making, researching and just taking note of things I want to go into a blog post. Of course there are doodles when my mind just goes blank but it’s always good to have a notepad handy.
My laptop of course is when I have my Blogger head on and don’t just want to do it from my phone. It’s always good to see what the bigger picture looks like if you get me.
My diary is where I can schedule in my blog posts and also keep an eye on how many I’ve done. I tend to not write too much in advance unless I know I won’t be able to write for a while.
The cute pen just makes me feel productive. Plus how could I walk past a fluffy pen…It gave me 90s vibes.
Til next time my beauts
So it’s nearly the end of June, the 6th month of the year, half way through the year of 2019 and I think it’s great to look back and write down what things have occurred and how it’s changed you/ your life
So grab a pen and paper and write down the questions I’m going to answer, you’ll be pleasantly surprised
🌞 NAME THREE CHANGES YOU’VE ACTIVELY MADE ?
– I have cared less about people who don’t give two hoots about me
– I have gone through my big surgery to try better my health
– I have started looking into spiritual things and being more chilled than stressed
🌞 WHATS THE BEST ADVICE YOU’VE HEARD?
Don’t give up on what you love, on yourself and on those you love ( would I?… NEVER )
I guess on those days when you think why do I bother doing this, nobody cares, yes they do and the one person that it should really matter who cares is you,so stop doubting yourself .
🌞 ONE WORD TO DESCRIBE THIS YEAR SO FAR?
I’d have to say TRYING. Our family as a whole have been through the mill over the past 6 months so at this point in time I think that’s my word.
🌞 BEST MOVIE YOU’VE WATCHED THIS YEAR?
Without a doubt it has to be Bohemian Rhapsody, I adore Freddie Mercury and all he was. His music, his carefree attitude and all round from the film you can see he’d been through things we never knew. A true legend that will live on in many peoples hearts
🌞 FAVOURITE SONG?
Singrid – Don’t feel like crying
This year this song has appeared on the radio when I felt a bit tearful and it was almost like a sign to say cheer up, you don’t really feel like crying.
🌞 ONE GOAL YOU ARE STILL STRIVING FOR?
I want to make a difference to people who like myself suffer from anxiety so whether it’s a book or some project or I may even get creative and make some relievers ( they definitely help me ) so if I could make some for others that’ll be great.
I find a bit of reflection is therapeutic if you just let yourself go and just write ✍🏻
Thanks for stopping by
