    How Do You Feel about Halloween? (Guest Post)

    ‘Ello, For this next blog post I figured it would be cool to see what everyone thinks about Halloween. Some of us love it, some of us hate it. So I’ve rounded up four bloggers to give us their opinions on Halloween. Imogen Do I love or hate Halloween? Now, that’s a bit of a tricky question as I wouldn’t say I outright hate Halloween but at the same time you probably won’t see me eagerly counting down till the celebration. I’m on a middle ground with Halloween but I wouldn’t be too sad if it just didn’t happen here either. Growing up me and my family never celebrated Halloween in the…

    To All The Friends That Have Let Me Down

    Welcome, In my last post, I wrote an open letter to all the friends that I’ve let down. Therefore, it seemed only fair that I voiced my feelings about the friends that have let me down. I’m not naming or shaming anyone. Sometimes, I think it’s just helpful for people to see the impact they’ve had on another person so they can grow as a person. To All the Friends that have let me down, Maybe you know who you are, and maybe you don’t. I won’t name names because there’s no use to that.

    To All The Friends That I’ve Let Down

So this one is to all the friends that feel I’ve let them down.   None of us are ‘perfect’ friends no matter how hard we try to be. I know this because I’ve tried really hard to do that myself. It is an impossible task. I’m terrible at replying to messages. I can read a message,…

    October Blogging Goals

    ‘Ello, Septembers goals were not met but I’m not disappointed. The truth is I didn’t work hard enough on social media to reap the rewards, so to speak. Being a blogger is hard work and sometimes it’s hard to keep on top of everything. So I’m going to start afresh for October with some new ones. These are not going to include a numerical value because I’d like to focus more on talking with other bloggers. Engage with more Bloggers I’ve never been great at keeping on top of twitter chats or generally communicating with other bloggers. In August and September, I did manage to make some small improvements in…
