Social Media Algorithms | The Good, The Bad and The Ugly

algorithms-landscape

Ooh look another blogger ranting about algorithms!  I have many a social media bone to pick, and today’s particular one is about the SM powers that be deciding what I want to see and when I see it.  So I’m not talking about the struggle to grow your accounts today, as big a deal as that is for bloggers.  Algorithms make bloggy social media shenanigans an utter pain in the arse, but the many algorithm/format changes over the last year…

I Don’t Believe In…

yellow-coat

First things first – I absolutely don’t mean to offend or alienate anyone with this one, so apologies in advance if I unintentionally do.  I figured if it’s OK for people to share the concepts they do believe in, then it’s OK for me to share why I don’t.  Just hear me out on this.  Might make some interesting discussion anyway. 🙂 You may now have the impression from this bullet point list that I’m a cold hearted cynical cow…

Our Changing Tastes in Blogging | What Do We Actually Want to Read and Write Anymore?

messy-bun-hairstyle

Good morning/evening/whenever the hell this goes up.  I’m writing this in the bath, on a Tuesday morning, jotting notes in a new notebook that I seriously hope I don’t now drop in the water.  It almost seems more risky than holding my phone.  I wonder how many phones have been casualties of trying to take a cute bath snap and slipping because your bath bomb made the bottom all slidey? I’m aiming to spend less time aimlessly scrolling (at what…

The Struggle to Pull Yourself Together After Christmas and New Year

smiling-young-woman

Hands up who’s failing a couple of their goals already?  My room’s a tip and I’ve blogged once in 5 days so erm, those two have gone down the toilet already.  Nevertheless, there’s hope for the rest! Can I also get a hands up from all the people who are struggling to kickstart their brain again after Christmas?  Seriously I think my brain cells have deteriorated and the ‘it’s 6pm, what have I actually done all day?!?’ feelings are kicking…

How to Have a Healthy Attitude Towards Health and Fitness in 2017

plt-gym-top

Wouldn’t be new year without at least one health and fitness post would it?  I’m writing this in my pyjamas, having not been to the gym today, and with no intention of squeezing in a gym sesh amongst the other stuff I’ve got on.  I’m also writing this with glutes so sore it hurts to sit down (changed up my leg day routine yesterday and I am FEELING it) so yeah, it’s not all lazy.  Just letting you know that…

2017 New Year Goals | Life, Travel, Blogging, Fitness & How I’ll Up My Game All Round

formby-forest

I think I can safely say that a population has never more glad to see the back end of a year.  2016 will be one for the history books, that’s for sure!  There’s a hell of a lot of pressure on 2017 to be a good one now and I’m worried what meltdowns will occur if it isn’t.  Personally 2016’s been a pretty mixed bag, but overall a good one.  Sadly I can’t influence any global travesties, but I am…

Being Nineteen In 2016 | Social Media, Being Taken Seriously and The ‘No Chill’ Thing

burgundy-jumper-dress

That’s a pretty specific title, I hear you say.  And that’s exactly my point.  During the past few days of taking it easy over Christmas (read: making a bum imprint on the sofa whilst binge watching Harry Potter and eating chocolate coins) I’ve been doing less and thinking more, and the idea crossed my mind. Being 19 in 2016 is very different to being 19 in 2006.  This world is a changing v v fast!  It’s crazy how much of…
