The End Of This Blog

I made a new blog! Click HERE to check it out!

 

Are you following yet? Go do that now!

 

You guys probably want an explanation as to why I’ve created a new blog, right? As you may have noticed, my content on here has been lacking. I post when I need to, not when I want to. I’ve also grown to dislike the name of my blog: personally, I felt it was too childish. Talking of childish, that’s also how I viewed my blog content.

 

Even so, my new blog is still me! The change between this content and that content isn’t drastic, so I’m sure you’ll love my new blog even more than you love this one! It would mean the world to me if you decided to go and follow my new blog!!

Going Crazy (A Short Story)

Walking into her dining room, she stops in the doorway. What exactly was she here for? Raising an eyebrow, she laughes it off, and walks away shaking her head.

Stepping into a new room this time, her bedroom, she sits at her desk with her laptop open and notices an almost empty draft in front of her. What exactly was she writing? Raising both eyebrows, she allows her head to fall into her hands, the way she herself fell onto the chair, and a sigh of defeat to escape her lips.

Venturing to a third room, the kitchen this time, she opens up a cupboard, before slowly shutting it again. What exactly was she planning on getting? 

Finally, giving up, she heads outside, and collapses down on a sunbed. Sitting up suddenly, it all comes back to her. She was in her dining room to get her phone from the table, then she was going to write a German essay before grabbing a cereal bar from the kitchen. 

This, she reminds herself, is what a sleep deprived brain does to her. Never again will she function on a mere hour of sleep. Of course, by the time another late evening has arrived she’ll likely have forgotten that vow, and will instead have to watch the small hours of the morning grow ever larger once more.

An Interview With A Small Blogger

I was emailed recently about being interviewed about blogging and life in general so, naturally, I said yes! As I’m still only a small blogger, I was thrilled about the opportunity and, of course, I decided I would share the interview on here:

How would you describe your personality in one word?

Ahhh, that’s’ really hard! Uhh, charismatic?

Who inspired you to blog?

I don’t remember exactly who was my inspiration, however, I remember finding out about blogging through popular YouTubers who mentioned it in their videos.

What common barriers did you face while achieving 1000 followers?

Finding the time to post! Sometimes time is just not on my side and I’ll end up sat with a mountain of work to do and no blogs posts written! I tend to pre-write now so that I never place myself in that stressful position.

What more are you hoping for from your blog?

Of course I’m hoping to grow, but I don’t like to focus on numbers. Interaction such as comments and emails are always what I strive for!

Your blog title is really interesting, how did you come up with the name?

If I remember correctly, I’m pretty sure I placed a load of random names I liked into a generator and ‘My Life Online’ was what came out of it!

How do you manage your blog and other activities? Do you get stuck?

Pre-writing posts is definitely a saviour! Many of my posts are scheduled so that on especially busy days I can turn my phone off and know that I have still posted. Then I make sure to dedicate an hour or so at night to replying to comments, checking out people’s blogs and reading posts!

In today’s age, everyone tries to be an inspiration to someone – do you think you’re an inspiration to your readers?

I hope so! I’ve had many people tell me they have been inspired by me and lots of people base their blog posts around something I’ve written – I see it as an honour and take it as a huge compliment!

Why did you choose WordPress to blog on?

I love web design and often make websites in my free time, however, I didn’t want to have to pay and so, for me, WordPress seemed ideal as you still get a reasonable amount of freedom with a free plan.

Do you want to explore more of the blogging world?

Of course! I love anything to do with blogging and I’m happy to explore as I go!

Will we see your blog with an individual domain in the future?

Possibly. If I decide to take blogging further than just a hobby, I’d be willing to pay for a custom domain, however, for now I don’t think it’s necessary.

How well do you know your followers? 

I’d like to think I know them quite well as a general group. I’ve picked up what posts they enjoy the most over time and I’m starting to cater to what they enjoy to read whilst still keeping to what I enjoy writing. Of course, I don’t have the time to get to know every follower individually, however, I make an effort to reply to every comment and now recognise many of them as individuals.

Finally, what’s your top piece of advice for new bloggers?

Don’t compare yourself to others! It’ll only make you disheartened – you have to remember that everyone grows at different rates! ❤

~Thank you too this blogger for the interview questions!~

Thoughts On An Airplane

Well, I’m sat on an airplane right now so this post seems relevant:

Okay, can I just start with something that’s been going through my head since I got to the airport – why is it spelled ‘airplane’ but pronounced ‘air-o-plane’? Does that make sense? No? Okay
okay that was stupid, in the UK we spell it aeroplane pahaha
If you attached wings to an aero chocolate bar would it become an ‘aero-plane’? Haha I’m so punny….

No miss air hostess lady, I do not have any rubbish…did you have to wake me up to ask that?

Turbulence is weird….why am I willingly sat on something flying through the sky that could fall at any moment? Oh god, why did I say that.

How do planes even work? I mean, it’s basically like a giant car that flies…omg I want to ride in that flying car from Harry Potter. Actually, no I don’t. That looks scary.

What country am I in right now? Wait, I’m not even in a country…I’m in the air.

Okay, this confuses the life out of me…say you take off in the afternoon and arrive in early morning yet the flight was only a few hours, do those lost hours just disappear into a vortex?

 What about when you end up landing before you took off? 

Flying is time traveling, airplanes are a tardis, a pilot is doctor who, you’re welcome!

I think the planes going to crash,what’s happening! Oh my god I hate turbulence! I can actu- … Nah, I’m just kidding,I’m fine

How many photos of the view out the window is too many? I think I’ve crossed that line…

Ooh the song ‘up and up’ just came on… I should of listened to that as we took off…

What’s the time? Actually i don’t think that question can be answered, we probably pass through a new time zone every half an hour.

Why is it that the higher you go up, the colder it is? I mean, we’re getting closer to the sun so shouldn’t it be warmer? I can clearly see the sun yet there is frost on the outside of my window…what?

Oh my god sunsets are so pretty! Wait, why is the sun setting? It’s like seven? Oh right, I’m not in the U.K anymore… Haha that was stupid…

No, I still don’t have any rubbish..you asked me this a few minutes ago.

Are people watching this plane fly above them right now? That’s so cool! Actually they can’t be, we’re above the clouds…haha oops

Oh my god I just realized I was mouthing the words to the song I’m listening to…through my headphones…

Temporarily thought we were flying over a snowy country…it was clouds

I swear I just saw a strike of lightning I’m actually freaking out. [EDIT: Read more about that here]

Is it just me or does the moon look like half a polo?

I’d love to sit on the wing of an airplane and watch the sunset. Actually, I most definitely do not want to do that, it’s slightly dangerous to say the least.

How come when you’re in a plane you never pass another plane? Yet loads fly at the same time? Ahh, they have trackers to stop that happening don’t they….

Oh my god this plane is so shaky! I can actually see the wings shaking…eek!

What’s the time in Greece? Should I be asleep right now? Am I going to be jet lagged?

Wait…I think I’m going to miss a whole night of sleep…if only someone would tell me whether I should be asleep right now or not!

Ugh stop shaking plane, I’m trying to write! Goodness, have some respect!

I don’t get time zones. What even is the time? Actually, that’s not important right now…I don’t even know what day it is!

Okay so the sun has almost completely set, that means it’s night right? But in what country is it night?

Does the sun set twice as fast when your flying? Because that sun set was awfully short…possibly because we were flying away from the sun. 

Nah, I’m in a tardis right now so I’m going to believe that time is traveling in varied degrees of speed. Granted, it probably is because you know, time zones. Maybe I’m not totally off with my doctor who theory?

Part one is completed! Thank you for reading my random rambles, feel free to leave some of your own down below!
