Stock photography is a cool thing, especially for bloggers. I will often look to some sites that offer "free-use" photos when I am stuck and do not have an image of my own to use for my posts. There are just some images that I have in mind, but have not been able to execute … Continue reading ShutterStock Portfolio
Five years ago, this blog came into existence. It's hard to believe that it's been five years already! There I was, sitting in the computer lab at a new school, when I got the idea to start a blog. I didn't have a real plan going into it - I just thought it'd be fun … Continue reading 5 Years of Blogging
Blogging is something that I've come to really enjoy over the years... to the point where I wish I had started doing it earlier in my life. Of course, I'd guess blogging since 2009 is considered a long time to most people. I wasn't a consistent blogger in the beginning. I really only wrote when … Continue reading My Blogging Journey
I've been a real hermit lately, even on the Internet. Assuming you're all still here, you've noticed this is my first post in a few weeks. Sorry about that. I just sort of lost myself into a deep state of introversion that I just plain didn't feel like coming up with any blog posts. As … Continue reading Introversion
Well the other night I rang in the New Year the best way possible... By sleeping into it. Yes, I crashed at 10pm New Year's Eve and I have no regrets. I was just so exhausted the entire day. I think the only time I was awake was just after work when my mom and … Continue reading Goals for 2016
In my experience of writing over the past 12 years, I think writing prompts are essential for writers. "But isn't everyone just writing about the same thing?" Well, yes and no. While writers might use the same prompt, the separate pieces of work will never come out exactly the same. Everyone has their own interpretation … Continue reading To Prompt, or Not to Prompt?
What is my life without a computer? I've been without my computer quite a few times. It is very hard for me to function doing everyday things without it. I do all my banking, most of my shopping, schoolwork and work on my computer. I probably would not have been in school for the past … Continue reading Life Without a Computer
Don't judge the title... it's pretty late right now. Anyway, I came across Bloglovin' a few months ago and signed up, but I honestly didn't think I'd end up using it. Well, I do. I found quite a few new blogs that I fell in love with while browsing the site and I know I … Continue reading Bloglovin’ It Up
In the words of the minions I love so much from Despicable Me... Whaaaaat? I'm shocked and also honored to be a nominee for this award. I believe I had to read the comment jestimous left on my blog about five, six... eighteen times before I could even start to believe it. And actually, I'm … Continue reading Sisterhood of the World Bloggers Award Nomination!
Out of curiosity I searched what the popular New Year's Resolutions are and as you can already guess, many of them are to lose weight/diet, quit smoking, save money, get fit, get a better eduction or something related to any of those. However, one post from BuzzFeed caught my attention as it was called, '49 … Continue reading Interesting New Year’s Resolutions
I'm not one for New Year's resolutions for the simple fact that I can never keep them. I guess things have to change though, right? The hard part for me is figuring out exactly what I want my resolutions to be. I don't want to get too crazy with them or bite off more than … Continue reading Goals for 2015
