Might do everything backwards today because I feel like it and because I can hehe. So yesterday (14th March 2018) from the minute I woke up to the time I went to bed had to be one of those days where I was like I was being back at my old job that everything seemed to be going wrong but it wasn’t. However today on #throwbackthursday I wanted to share with you guys something very special and something that I’ve only just learnt recently.
If you remember me starting out from day one back in November 2015 where I was starting out but haven’t got a clue what I was doing. I learnt that the other day I had a loads of subscribers without even noticing I had that category my apologies to anyone that I completely ignored. It was set up by an email that I didn’t know at the time or figured out to access it; I’ve now changed so that I know who is registering and who’s posting, if you are one of those people that I didn’t haven’t clue about I’m 100% sorry but this blog is for you. I wanted to share how many subscribers I’ve got so far with you guys and I’m so proud that you guys have been subscribing to me and continuing to as well. Thank you ever so much guys.
We come to followers yes it’s only 5 followers but I’m pretty sure it will raise slowly; yet it got me thinking why everyone is boasting about the whole how many followers they were getting, I was like I’m not getting much no matter how many blogs I do and so on. That’s when I realised everyone has been subscribing to my blog website; I don’t mind either way if you follow you follow you subscribe you subscribe, either which I’m happy but secretly would be nice to see more than 5 and that’s just me to be honest I think I just need to work on that a bit more haha.
Making the mark of 50 likes of my blog post is a great sense of achievement because it shows that my work is actually amazing because I know how critical I am about my work and my pictures. The fact that it’s giving me the voting confidence and believe in myself that it isn’t rubbish but also starting to find my leash or niche whatever you call it theses days. Just want to say a massive thank you to you guys in believing in me and liking my blogs.
I just want to say thank you to everybody so far reading my blogs; I am internal grateful for continuing to come back each day, reading my stories and other blogs that are surrounding them. I’m so glad that you guys like them very muchly not sure if that’s a word but it is now haha.
The fact that you guys are giving me so much positivity of being able to continue to write; I know that 20-30 views along with 10-20 visitors isn’t a big deal to anyone but to me, I am glad that I’ve got the regular people who like to come back and read them time and time again. I’m having awesome time writing these sort of things as if I know what I meant to be writing; that’s what she said, but at the end of the day you guys are the ones that are making it happen and by that you’re getting good blogs out of it all.
I wonder if you remember earlier this week on Monday 5th January 2018 that I had launched a payment/donation page along side my Hustle and Bustle Advice of Blogging this week about it. If you can donate anything it would be grand if you are under the age of 16 please ask your parents permission to help donate the two charities that are listed in the page in the top box. I have also attached the button down below also. You’re help, kindness, generosity and thoughtful many will help others in a long run. Let’s turn this world into a positive one for who we are.
Fun fact that I’ve just created at least three in one night before today’s blogs post probably saying that by now I would of fallen a sleep writing this if I’ve finish this by the end I’ll write I haven’t fallen asleep on this one for tonight’s post. The fact is that I am on a role right now for blogging so no time to sleep even though I’ve got work and etc but right now I don’t care.
“So how do I do that when I write emotional stories and publish it afterwards?” “Like Lizzysweeklyblogs have you seen her blog posts recently?” To be honest I struggle at the best of times if you ask me oh wait you did. Ha. Well to be honest music and just typing in first liners generators so that I can get some idea of what I can feed off the lines of them. Meaning to get a story out of the lines as I mostly get a good story out them; yet with some of the songs you can just bulk out the lines in a story cut some of the lines out that you don’t want, put in what you want use your emotions and feelings inside you onto the paper or screen.
The arts of writing is that everyone has a story to tell; everyone has a voice, everyone has a life, everyone has experiences and it depends on how they want to show it to the world. I for one can’t keep a diary I’ve tried but never works out for me in the slightest but I transfer it all into a story to where I get the characters tell the story of how they feel, what’s happening and etc. I genuinely feel better about it because it just gets my anger, helplessness, and most importantly helps clears my mind also.
So you could say story writing for me is like my journal or diary of how I am feeling on the day. Yet I’m sharing it with the characters who aren’t real and I don’t have to talk about it to anyone else who is real. It’s all there in the story. You just have to be patient with the whole system to be honest and most importantly find your own style of writing at the end of the day.
It took me all day to write Tuesday’s online blog (20.2.18) until I had the realisation of how anger and hurt I was feeling. Then this song that I haven’t heard in a very long time came into my head then it was like the past week I was like yeah I don’t know what to do since you’ve been gone never felt so alone. I had work it out how I was going to write it with that sort of line of words because I still loved them no matter what was going on in my head.
Story writing for me is a work of art once you’ve got something to write about write about it because at the end of the day the characters are the one telling the story and so are you but via them. That’s how I see it you. It’s like directors working with actors on a film set; for me it’s me working with characters so they can understand me and I can understand them, it’s quite cleaver how it all works once you know what your doing. Sometime I don’t even know what I’m doing most of the time.
Yep that’s me done for a Wednesday Evening Post this week and I haven’t stopped half way through last night. So that’s a bonus which I normally do because I get distracted quite easily; no I’m not what you think it is can’t remember the letter for it, I think it’s ADHD or something close to that, it’s just me with a few other things. Good night peeps.
Each and every blogger have different difficulties when they come to their blogging; mine was not having enough ideas for blogs which is known to writers as writers block, wanting to give up on my writing and blogging and not wanting to achieve anything. Part of it was down to the personal issues at the time when I reached to those points of giving up on everything; due to the fact that I thought it was pointless at the time nothing was happening, they weren’t great blogs at all, to be able to overcome those negative thoughts and the writers block I had to decide to create a different niche of things for my readers to read.
Most importantly keep them interested in reading them but how? I wondered and pounded for awhile; researched things what other people have done but sometimes never came out anything good, then it occurred to me what about Diary Entries and Challenges everyone seems to like them one way or another. I gave it ago to see where they would take me.To my surprise I had noticed that they had taken off quite well as they seemed to be liked more and more as each challenge came about. Even with the Online Diary Entries encouraged other blogs that I had forgotten that I had written came swimming back up to the top.
I always believed that you should always take some time out at the end of the day when your stuck for ideas take a break time to time; so that when you clear your head you’ll get fresh new ideas coming to you, and think oh yeah that will be a great idea to do something like that. Then you think yes! That’s a great way of doing things. Always take a break but don’t leave it too long otherwise it will take you ages to get back into it again. Also believe that you can overcome your fears that may cause your difficulties in the near future but tackling it dead on instead.
Come on Lizzy get the right picture on the picture wakey wakey. Just put the wrong picture up when I was planning this before I posted it up; typical me to be honest haha I know right guys, silly me. Any who as you may of noticed over the weekend that I’ve completed my Valentines Challenge and they are now up for scheduled for each day. Finally I do say so myself because I was really struggling and wanted to stop writing them but I plod through.
Now they are ready to go out on time each day until the day of the event. I can now start filling in the blanks around them with my other blogs that may come to mind at the time. It’s not going to be easy but I’ve managed to do it so far in the past few days adding in a few blogs here and there but who knows.
If you have made a self challenge when blogging it’s probably easy so that you know that you got something for the day or just something like an Online Diary Entries for example to be scheduled or something. So when the idea comes that you really want to talk about you know you can just post it up. Doesn’t really matter how many you post up in one day or when you spread it out only you can decide if you should or should not. It’s your blog at the end of the day no one else’s; trust me it’s better than having no blogs at all for weeks on end, I’ve done that a few times and it’s taking me about a month to get back into writing for my main categories because I didn’t know what to write but I used like challenges that I set myself and Everyday Online Diary Entries to get my by so I can find away of having some sort of idea that I want to write.
Trying new things always seem to work for me because they stick and I can always fall back onto my old categories as well. So that it ways up more chances and draw people in and wanting to come back for more.
Everyone has a complete run of planning and scheduling in one block but then at the best of times after a good block you get the bad block of non- planning and scheduling. It’s okay to have a positive and a negative bouncing off each other at the best of times; I should know because I have them all the time as you should know, hence why I create things that are different to keep me going even if it’s not what I want at the time but to keep my audience interested and grabbing their attention all the time.
It’s good to know when you look at your stats everyday and record them to know what’s the best outcomes of things than meaning; what works and what doesn’t work, so that you know what to expect in the mean time as well and sometimes you get nice surprise of readers going back to your old blog post as well. It just gives you the most positive outcome when you know that when you plan and schedule your blogs people enjoy reading them.
Non-planning and non-scheduling it’s hard when you have the writer’s block you think “oh no one is going to read my blogs anymore. I might as well give up now” how many times have I confessed to you guys about me wanting to give up writing and etc. One to many in my opinion. Yet I still work out some ways to post things up when I know the feeling I’ve got something is good and etc.
Trust me if I didn’t start writing the daily diary for each day to keep me going until something amazing comes to mind for my major events. That’s when I know I haven’t got something to worry about; as I know that I’ve got something to fall back on if I’m struggling to write something, I’m also quite fortunate that I’ve got Valentine’s Challenge coming up and I know that will be a sell out due to my two previous challenges that I’ve did at the end of last year.
I do recommend keep changing how you work things with your blog because it will draw your readers in along with updating pictures along side every so often. You may bring more readers into your website than ever before. That’s even with social media as well.
As you have noticed that this is my first major blog post of the year; the reason why is I wanted to take it slow because I thought I can collect my thoughts on what topics I can come up with, also it’s only the new year on our third week and we got the rest of the year to contend with. I like having the time off every so often so that I can work on myself as well outside of the blogging world as well.
I’ve also been revisiting some of my old blogs that I’ve done in the past, rewriting them and reposting them along with Online Diaries for each day. Little things like that has helped me get back into what I want to write and I love the fact that you guys read my Online Diary Entries take it in what I write. I always like to give you a chance to have a opinion on things but knowing that I know the truth when I write them you give the respect back as well.
I love just the fact that you guys give me the chance of coming up with new ideas and still continue to read my old blogs as well. Some that I’ve forgotten all about as well; I’m like which one is that? I either look back at it or I don’t I’m like “oh yeah I remember that one” sorry this is short and sweet but this week it’s one of those days I can’t think what to write about.
