My Blogger Essentials

img_20190905_175627_5922195517143107056890.jpg


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.

The ball is rolling

YES I’VE DONE IT

IT’S BEEN GOING AROUND IN MY MIND

ALL THE WORDS I WANT TO WRITE

WERE REALLY HARD TO FIND

🌸

I finally got my act together and thought about this book i have been willing to write. I want to make it perfect, not just for me but perfect for all who read it.

So today I have come up with a plan and of course the title.

The cover at the moment is simple and I think I may leave it like that as nobody likes a garish looking book.

So if I plan to do two or three pages a night, I hope to have it completed by the end of the year if not before.

🌸

YES MY BOOK WILL BE HELPFUL, WHAT ELSE DID YOU EXPECT. YOU’LL WANT TO REACH FOR IT MAYBE IN A TIME OF NEED.

Wish me luck 🍀

I am someone who…

For old readers and new i thought this would be an easy read and since its baking hot today it’ll just be what comes to mind, as i love to blog and publish on the same day. like keeping it fresh…so here goes

I AM SOMEONE WHO

LOVES : Spending time with others who make me feel alive (happy, giggly and loved)

HATES : Backstabbers, gossips and fakery – they are just the worst

CANT: Go a day without eating either cheese or chocolate…oh or mayo

CAN: be there for those who need me and perk someone up when they are feeling down.

WILL NEVER: Give up when my illness is trying to irritate the hell out of me.

HAS: Been on a rough journey through life (bullying, sexual abuse, divorce of parents, lost my brother and chronic illness) and still i smile though it all.

CANT WAIT TO: Get my writing head back on and write and publish a book suitable for everyone – self help me thinks

HAS NEVER: Tried drugs, i mean each to their own but it doesn’t float my boat or appeal to me in any way.

WISHES: There was a cure for Cancer and Dementia as its two of the most cruelest diseases ever.

TRIED: To learn to drive but i had bad anxiety and just lost all confidence. Give me a road with nobody else driving on it and i’ll be fine.

USUALLY FORGETS: what i go upstairs for, then come back downstairs to then remember. so annoying.

WILL PROBABLY END UP: that old bird with a pink rinse and probably a perm.

IS THANKFUL FOR: all the thoughtful people i have in my life, the roof i have over my head and the things we all take for granted like our phones and laptops.

Anyway, there you have it, i guess you know me a little better than you did before.

What are you writing about?

From when you were small and you learnt to write your name….

Little did you know that you would be writing your whole life.

Though we all use writing differently.

If you are reading my blog and you blog too then you have a talent with your writing, or if you are an author I take my hat off to you too.

These 3 books play an important role in my life.

This is my journal where I write down whatever comes into my head I think is worth writing down and looking back at.

This one is where I see all the self care tips and those hacks and such like I put them in here so I know when I need some encouragement it’s in here.

Finally this is where I write all my ideas for blog ideas and of course my future book when I get round to writing it.

I write pretty much all the time as I adore it so much.

Thanks for stopping by

Let me think about it

It’s Saturday night it’s been so bloody hot today here in England.

so I thought let’s do a nice easy Q and A from the comfort of my nice cool bedroom.

OK its called 5 favourites and I’ve chosen 5 questions from the list…

Oh this is my thinking face too 🙈

  • 5 favourite celebrities : Micky Flanagan, Colin Firth, Meryl Streep, Phillip Schofield and Cameron Diaz (3 eye candy and 2 fab women)
  • 5 favourite words/sayings you use too much: peachy, beaut, I love it, you’re special, ya (like the German for yeah) that ones just become a habit 🙈
  • 5 favourite movies of all time : Bridget Jones Diary – the first one, Now and then, 10 things I hate about you, The kissing booth and of course Dirty Dancing…. There’s so many than 5 I’ll do a blog post on it at a later date.
  • 5 favourite pictures on my phone that are not people :

and finally

5 favourite quotes:

  1. live well, laugh often, love much.
  2. If it doesn’t make me feel fabulous I don’t want it.
  3. The greater the storm the brighter the rainbow.
  4. Love yourself like your not waiting for someone else to do it
  5. It’s not about the size you wear but how you wear your size.

Hope you enjoyed the read 🌸

Keeping you in the loop

I want to keep you, my lovely followers informed of what’s going on with my blog.

So I want to get some sort of normality to it and start a schedule again so it’ll keep me writing and not get writers block or lack of motivation so here’s what days I intend on having posts up

THIS IS BRITISH TIME GMT – IF YOU DONT WANT TO MISS A POST TURN YOUR NOTIFICATIONS ON

You know I like to bring to the blog a range of topics to make you laugh, think and inspire…so I’ll do my best with my upcoming posts

The only times I may not be able to post is when I’m ill as I have a few chronic illnesses that get in the way when I least expect them to.

Best get my planning head on for this weeks trio of posts

THINK I HAVE OVERUSED THE WORD POST TODAY 🙈

See you in a few days

A little celebration

3 years ago I decided to embark on my blogging journey.

To be honest I wasn’t sure what I was going to write or if anyone was going to be interested in hearing what little me had to say.

❤️ Turns out I’ve shared my health problems and the ups and downs of them.

❤️ In turn that’s made me a more positive person and I love to share those positive vibes and help anyone out who’s feeling down as I’ve been there once upon a time.

❤️ I’m a right girly girl so of course there was going to be beauty and a bit of fashion thrown in for good measure.

❤️ If I have some tips to get you through everyday life of course I’m going to share. All have been tried and tested. I’d never tell you to try something I hadn’t already.

❤️ Love me a monthly favourite looking back at the month just been and what bits and pieces have made me smile.

❤️ Growing up I never loved myself so now I’m older I really urge anyone to love who they are and it doesn’t make you vain or stuck up. So you’ll find me always spreading the self love message.

Here are a few blog posts I thought I’d add in so you can have a nosey

HOW DO YOU BLOG?

20 THINGS YOU NEED TO START DOING

DIARIES VS BULLET JOURNALS

DISABLED NOT DUMB

DAD I’LL NEVER GIVE UP ON YOU

MY ANXIETY TIPS

Also without all of you supporting me by reading my blog it wouldn’t keep me going.

Writing is my passion so having HOLZIELOVES is really an outlet for whatever comes into my head that I fancy sharing.

Much loves, you keep up your journeys too
