“Dude, it’s August today so you’d better be writing a blog” Urm… balls. Day One
Ok, so it’s currently 11:03pm when I started writing this, so I don’t have long or I fail this whole thing (I forget what it’s called) that SOMEONE wants me to do.
So yeah, I’m currently listening to Phil Collins, so expect this to be a chilled blog. Whatever that may be.
It’s been a VERY long time since i’ve blogged, mainly I forgot about it. Secondly Lucy kept nagging at how terrible my writing/grammar/punctuation is. It’s good enough to do well in my English GCSE however, at least I hope so! Possibly one of the reasons I forgot about my blog was the lack of readers and feedback I received. I honestly don’t know how to make it so it’s more read, sure I can write something good, but how do I write something that a large audience would like? Most large-bloggers I see have YouTube channels, or other sources of internet fame, maybe authors? Be it Fan-Fic or something else.
I know it’s very naive, but it’s true. A lot of the time, it feels like i’m writing to no-one, sure it was nice when I was not feeling too great and I could let off some steam. Last autumn and winter was very bad for me, I was definitely not in a good place in my life, so I had a lot of vent. But now, life is great I have a lot of great and close friends, I go out often, socialise a lot, the lot. I am happy. Because of this, I don’t have anything to vent, meaning I have to find another source of blogging material, there is possibly no point doing the news, or games, someone is paid to do it, and they do it so much better. To me, it only left one option, review stuff! Share my experiences on stuff perhaps, but mostly give my opinion on books, films, television programmes and games. I could also express my opinion on stuff in the news.
But here’s my point; venting is ok when there is no readers. But reviews and sharing stories and experiences of myself, that is pointless without people to read it. Sure it may be good to read back on, but lets face it, that’s only good when i’m a lot older, I doubt i’ll remember this website then.
I do not care how bad or shallow it is, I want more readers. And to do this, I guess I’ll have to just do the above, and hopefully, people will read it. Because of this one-month thing, I’ll do it daily (To the best of my ability) I would do it in the morning so I don’t forget, but then i’d have nothing to write about! So I aim to either 1. Get Lucy to remind me 😉 2. Use my shiny new iPhone 4s (iPhone > Android) to remind me. 3. Or just use my brain. I’m counting on number one.
So that’s my first blog, a ‘small’ idea of what to expect over the next couple of weeks, and I slight excuse to my lack. Reviews/Experiences/Opinions to come!
Also a quick note, after reading The Fault In Our Stars by John Green. (Read it. It’s great.) I had a slight notion to possibly write a short story of my own, with multiple influences of authors, more so Greens, due to how profound he his. But i’m not that smart, so it may be fantasy based, rather than a modern day setting. How does medieval-like sound? I think writing combat would be fun!
That’s it, Day one. Thanks for reading.
And to whoever reads this, thank you, I’m pretty sure who that one person is, but I want to say; you inspire me, you always push me to do cool stuff which may require effort, but I do enjoy it. You’re nearly always write on good books/films. Your such a awesome person. And I aspire to follow in your tracks. Despite us being the same age, you are a lot more mature than I.
You are awesome.
Thanks for reading!
