Blogging Talk 2!

Hi Guys,

I'm really sorry that I didn't upload on Wednesday. I was at Fame from half five until well after 10! Only a month and a half in and I have already broken my resolution to upload on time. Oops...

As you can tell by the title,the continuous topic through this post will be blogging. Last time I made a post abut blogging I discussed finding topics and followers. One opinion I posed was if my readers would enjoy it... it turned out you did! I got so much great feedback from that post and gained a lot of followers which was wonderful!

I started my blog not to have a huge following base but to develop a writing style and get my opinions out to the world. As my blog has progressed, I have realised how wonderful it feels to check your 'stats'.

If you don't have a blog (or just haven't realised) if you go on to the design section of your blog a menu will come up on the left hand of your screen. There is a section on it that you can click which will allow you to view your stats. It shows you all kind of things; your page views; what countries view your blog; even what browser was used!

It is a really great feeling to look at it all because it gives you such a great sense of achievement and makes you believe that all of your effort is worth while. At the moment I am at 738 page views which is crazy! Thank you so much to everyone who in the past 4/5 months has got my view count to that many! Also thank you to any one who has followed me publicly. It is great that you have helped me get closer to my goal of 14 followers by the end of February!

That was a pretty long post but thank you for getting to the end! I hope you have an amazing Valentines day!

Thanks for Reading

November's Essay...

I haven't been feeling very well this month. I took my first day of school- in a few years- on Monday because of how bad it was. Physically, I had a cold. No, I'm not one of those people! (Side note...) It always irritates me when people have a bit of a sniffly nose and then take two weeks off from school. There's just no need! My moto is: have a bit of lemsip and get over it. I'll drag myself into school practically unconscious with a bus stuck in my side and still plaster a smile onto my face. This month, however, I finally admitted there was something wrong.

A day was spent under a blanket with Gossip Girl on. In the end I put 'After Laughter' on and woke up two hours later, confused, wondering why the music had stopped. Even though I felt awful the next day (I always get massive colds!), I went back into school. That day at home did me good though because it was nice to spend some time resting and not being stressed. That's something that I don't do …

A Zillenial on the Eighties...

Now, let's throw it back to the glorious year of 2004. Shrek 2 was hitting our screens, Jeremy Clarckson was hitting Piers Morgan in the face and Maria Julia Mantilla was being crowned 'Miss World' over in China. I, a bit closer to home, was enjoying the early years of life. However, across the sea 'Bowling for Soup' were releasing '1985': a bop that I would only come to appreciate about twelve years later. The song contains references to many pop-culture focal points that I have never understood... until now! It's time for me to explore the eighties! 

First off is 'Whitesnake'. For the past few years, I've thought that 'Whitesnake' was one person (a rapper or something? I don't know!) but it turns out that they're a band! The were a British hard rock band who rose to fame in the 80s, originally formed in 1977. Another band that I believed to be a single person was 'Blondie'. My friend recently went to see them, althou…
