Star Light Categories – Hustle and Bustle Advice of Blogging: I haven’t forgotten you guys

How you doing guys? Believe me guys I haven’t forgotten you at all just been busy one thing after another and so on. It may seem to be like that but I haven’t honestly though I haven’t. I have also been working on my other new blog site Follow the footprints on the open pages. 

It’s for my poetry and short stories I’m currently focusing on one area at a time to help build the fan base from there onwards. We all know how tricky it is to build a blog or work with something to improve on. It’s takes me awhile to do whilst not doing other things. The fact that I get good reviews and likes on the blogs when I post them up it’s quite nice that people appreciate them more than anything which is nice. 

I’ve started to do something like this bullet journal thing with my total categories I don’t have space for pictures but I use bright colours to make them into boxes. It’s quite nice to see the whole lay out of things in a way that it’s like very calming and relaxing. I had really good word I wanted to use but couldn’t spell it even trying to sound it out it didn’t want to work; I gave up to be honest something simple in the end, I hope you know what I was trying to say at least I hope.

I’m sorry this is short I’ve been stopping this blog all day today (13.8.18) being doing other things. Boring adult life but it needed doing along. 

Star Light Categories – Hustle and Bustle Advice of Blogging – Follow The Footprints On The Pages Blog Website

Hey guys how’s it all going sorry it’s a bit later on the day for this one but I’ve just released my first writing blog on my new website called ‘Footprints On The Pages’ this is going to be for my short stories and poetry that I enjoy doing. I had it up running but trying to figure out what sort of things that I wanted to do for it and how I want to do it. 

I will still be keeping this one of course as my main one but Footprints On The Pages is more for my short stories and poetry trying to keep them separately from this one so it won’t get so confusing. The website is still on going for improvement with me adding bits to it; now that I know roughly what I’m doing for this main blog, and that I know I can fix this one whilst knowing that I can improve myself for on the other website. 

I don’t even know if that made any sense to you guys or not but I think I knew what I wanted to say but not getting it out from my head to the screen is impossible. That’s how my brain works and I’m like what are you trying to say you doughnut. Since posting my first poetry on there in the space of an hour this morning people literally clicking likes. As you guys know what one it is because I posted it this morning (6.8.18). 

Why not go and follow footprintsonthepages.wordpress.com to keep updated with the whole poetry and stories that will be coming your way. 

Star Light Categories – Hustle and Bustle Advice of Blogging – Do you have problems releasing your creative side? Why do you think that is?

Originally this was meant to be yesterday’s post (29.7.18) but I’ve decided to write it for today’s Hustle and Bustle Advice of Blogging (30.7.18) I thought let’s get today’s out of the way first so that it might actually come to me for Sunday Special or nothing at all. If I have that’s great but if not all well only you guys will know by the time you read this. 

Over the weekend I was having a struggle in releasing my creative side because I was starting to feel so down about myself to the fact that I had been in the house monjority of the week. I think personally I was feeling so tired and low that it just that sometimes I just think what’s the point of me even doing this. I genuinely hate that sort of thing because writing is my life but when I’m having a moment it all stops; personally I do think it’s good to have a few days off in between where you’re having an off day or not you need that sort of a break. 

To be able recuperate and to be able to think fresh for the new week a head and be able to think what to write and feel confident in what I want to write about instead of  forcing myself to write something that I don’t like and feel like it’s not my best work update. Can someone tell me if I spelt “recuperate” right because to me it doesn’t look right? I have the feeling it is right but not 100% sure. If someone says “look it up in a dictionary” you know where the door is…. okay because I still won’t know what I’m looking for in the dictionary. 

Sorry if that sounded rude or not but I’ve come along way without a dictionary. I have used it a few times when I needed to but I find it lot harder when I don’t know how it’s starts or anything. That’s because I’m dyslexic and I’m proud of it even when it’s a pain in the arse at the best of times. Yet you wouldn’t get amazing content without me practicing everyday with my creativity and spelling. 

Creative writing is the one thing that saved my life with spelling and language; so if you thinking of saying, “look it up in the dictionary” there’s the door because that’s one worse thing to say to a dyslexic person who just asked for help by their readers.  I prefer to ask my readers because I like to be able to improve along side my readers so that I know I’m doing good. Either comment or hit the like button if I spelt  “recuperate” right.

Many Thanks guys 

Star Light Categories – Hustle and Bustle Advice of Blogging – Why don’t like the first blog that I originally done?

I’ve countlessly rewriting so many blogs before publishing them on to my website because sometimes I just feel like they aren’t good enough or I’m just not feeling the  love or the passion in them that I normally write. I’ve come to realise I’ve done it quite a few times now and then or I don’t bother at all. 

I personally like to feel the blog or the story that I’m writing like I’m actually in it telling the story because it makes it more real and have that sense of feeling like it has a purpose of being there. If it doesn’t have that feeling or purpose of being there then why should it be there. 

I’ve rewritten at least the first few sentences of my story that I’ve started twice now on my second opening because I literally couldn’t feel myself getting into the story as much as I wanted to be like. So I had to look up opening starters to see what I could do to make it more intriguing and interesting that the first paragraph along with the whole listening to one of the videos that gave me the idea in the first place. It gave me that sense of feeling that I was on the right path to get it right and on the right track. 

I do find you have to your niche and etc it’s okay to have off days when you find that you can’t find what you want to write about. It’s fine the fact that you have your days like; it means you know you got think and take your time to work out something that’s interesting to write about in your own time. No matter how much you want to write you just have those annoying writers blocks and you see people continually posting things everyday and think why are they having so many things to write about and I don’t. 

Trust me everyone has though days you may find they go quiet for a few days and all of the sudden they have a spirt of loads of blog post everyday. It’s natural to have them how many times have I had those moments that I can’t think what to write but yet all of the sudden I have loads. Quite a lot. So it’s okay to have a writer’s block at the end of the day; it’s like having a blocked brick wall in front of you, you try to find something to blow it up and you use everything that you have until you got the one thing that would do it and that’s when your back on that road again. 

Star Light Categories – Hustle and Bustle Advice of Blogging – My two current favourite apps

On Thursday I think it was it could might as well be on Friday last week I had two awesome apps for my iPad (by the way I’m not being sponsored for this) called “MindNode” and “TabletJournal” they are so awesome I fell upon them whilst looking through the whole App Store and I thought why not give them both a go to see what they are like.

Oh my word they are so good you could barely imagine; the reason for this is because it has unleashed my short stories that I’ve been struggling to write for a very long time without any prompts, not saying my daily challenges or any other stories that I’ve written in the past needed the apps but for me personally I found that they’ve woken up an old part of me that I use to do all those years ago. 

I use to do mind maps and everything in journals pieces of paper and so on. Also answer questions that I would write about to get me thinking of what story I wanted to write about. This was when I had word on my old laptop before it dyed on me for being so old; to which I had to buy a new laptop which was Apple Mac Pro I think it was then I sold it, which is annoying but I do hope I get a new one soon and do things again that I want to use it for. 

However my iPad has worked its wonders for now for over a year so it’s all good I like it. Mindnode is basically an app that you can create a mind map of what you want to do whether it’s for blogs, stories, business ideas and etc it’s so handy that you can create lots of different colours with it and many more ways to be creative with it that can help you.

TabletJournal app is like a normal like journal but on a app; you can use it for anything to be honest, I’m just going to use it for my short stories because I find it easier to answer my questions that I have planned out on Mindnode and be able to expand how I want to do but also to know the outline of the story before I write it completely. I use to do this sort of thing years ago to fill in the gaps with questions and colour code them so I know which ones are which. I am so ocd when it comes colour coding and organisations with my blogs and stories. 

You may find it with my pictures there’s certain things that I do with my pictures where I have to have the right sort of pictures for certain categories to the best of my ability. Presentation for me is important for me whether it’s for myself or for you guys. 

Star Light Categories – Hustle and Bustle Advice of Blogging – Organisation goes out of the window over the weekend

So basically as you can tell todays blog post have arrived rather late today (2.7.18) due to things happening that I wish not to speak of right now or might not ever but I’m on the mends slowly. However my apologies for that. I literally had my whole weekend planned to organise myself what I wanted to write all in my head; especially for today’s blog post for Hustle and Bustle Advice of Blogging, this was meant to be about being organised on what you want to write and what ideas you may have in the near future. 

You could say I can still write about it you know. I actually could I just need to stop beating myself up about what happened over the weekend. Which is true. I need to stop and take control again. After falling asleep for a bit to regroup my thoughts and what I want to write about this. I’m not going to change the opening or the title it’s staying as it because knowing me I’ll be ending up saying the same thing to the original piece that I started. 

How to be organise your blog? 

In this side heading you will find in this blog on how to be organised in what you would like to write. This also works with blogging on YouTube than having hit and miss or dropping a load of blogs each day because you feel like you have to and so on. Also it works in normal life as well because I prefer to schedule myself monjority of the time so I know what I’m doing.

To be able to organise your blog you need to know wether your going to have set categories for you blog post like I do or not. I find for myself having set categories for each blog post helps me when I know which ones I’m writing for and then in the titles for example for this one as you can tell I put Star Life Categories – Hustle and Bustle Advice of Blogging – Organisation goes out of the window over the weekend. Sometimes I put the date on sometimes I don’t it depends on how I feel but normally when it’s like Everyday Online Diary Entries or Online Diary Entries I tend to because it will give that feel factor of it’s actually a diary entry. 

I now and then write them for most post but not all the time; you even may notice that I’ve started to write dates in the post like this one because I know in a few days or weeks or months or years to come people will revisit and think oh this was written but it will still have the same effect in the future like the present time. This is because you still want people to read your old past post even they are reading your present; trust me pin pointing my old post and my new post has become so much easier doing the whole categories with the titles, the dates and so fourth and the reason behind it is that when I come to writing up my stats I know where to put them without getting so confused. 

How do you schedule what you want to write?

When it comes to scheduling what you want to write is sometimes hard you may find you just want to upload everything but this may not be a great idea because I’ve made a few mistakes doing that. The reason for it is because you’ll find that it will get missed or not be picked up by your readers as it might be too much for them. 

Sometimes you may find that you write a blog and think this isn’t what I wanted I’m not ready to post them yet. That’s when you find a neat button when you about to upload the post it may say immediate post with the date and time I know WordPress  does because I schedule my blogs all the time. You can set it on a different date and time when you want it; I know that WordPress as about four categories, publish, drafts, schedule and bin. You can always check your schedule what’s going out soon so you can remember and scheduling is also comes under organisation because if you forget a day to post for some odd reason something has happened on the day. You wouldn’t have to worry it be a nice surprise when you look up your stats and be like “oh yeah I remember writing that and schedule that for today. I don’t have to feel so bad about not posting anything” 

It is a common thing to forget or something happens like for example my weekend I know I published over the weekend even when things happened. It’s one of those things I beat myself up about it wether I have or not but at the end of the day I tell myself it’s okay you’ll bounce back. You have your full team of stags behind you and they aren’t leaving you behind. 

Everyday Online Diary Entries: (28.6.18) Thursday – Do you use maths everyday?

Do I use maths everyday? If I can help not really me and maths don’t get on its all to do with dyslexia and etc so I try not if I can. I just generally panic when I see numbers and I gave no matter the time or my energy or brain power to focus it on school or college no matter how many times I took the exam at college until my final year that I manage to pass it. I didn’t bother attending the rest of the lessons as they were doing level 2 numeracy and I just couldn’t be bothered because I was getting frustrated with it all.

The only thing I use maths in is my stats I like to keep a record of how much progress that I have over the weeks and months. Yeah it will take me an hour or so but I have a system of doing it and I’m revisiting my system for next month so that it will work swimmingly because sometimes it gets confusing along side the blog posts when I’ve been creating them. As I’ve been labelling them in away that helps me more what I’m looking at and most importantly my readers (you guys) know that there are more blog post out there of mine and along side old ones to which you guys are now starting to find.

It’s like saying I’m clearing out my blog site but I’m not really at the same time. I know that my blogs probably looking a bit busy or not I don’t know. I just write them, schedule them, post and hope for the best. However it’s making me feel the positive coming through as I’ve been getting the same amount of views each day. I like that a lot.

Star Light Categories: (18.6.18) Hustle and Bustle Advice of Blogging – How many blogs do you blog a day?

Word up guys! I hope you’re having the bless sunny day today (18.6.18) want to say a quick thank you for continuing to read my blogs yesterday (17.6.18) as I had become very ill over the weekend which wasn’t good. I am now on a slow but on the right tracks to get myself back onto the open road again. Along with my stag and you guys coming to the rescue with full force of your stats. Thank you if you are one of those people on here or on my instagram. We can do this together and stand strong. 

Onwards and upwards this is the second attempt of this writing this blog as I was on a role last week. Not 100% why I couldn’t finish it all off but I think I fell asleep whilst writing it. 

I genuinely try and write 2-3 blogs a day for the following day no matter what happens. I just believe that I can push out 3 as my limit but 4 is pure luck. I like the consistent within my blogs as much as I can. Knowing your limit of what you can blog and knowing when they are ready to go out. 

I like the fact that I do 2-3 blogs knowing the success of blogging three blogs out I know how to keep my readers entertained. Also keeps myself writing for you guys and myself to keep ourselves busy and not let our negativity get the better of us. 

Everyday Post: (10.6.8) Sunday – Revisiting Old Blog Posts Catergories

‘“Fine day Sunday. Best day of the weekend why is that Dudley?” Asked Uncle Vernon Dudley shrugged as he took a biscuit from Harry “Theres no post on Sundays” replied Harry offering Uncle Vernon a biscuit “right you are Harry. Ha no post on Sundays ha. Not one single bloody letter not one” excited Uncle Vernon.’

I am afraid to inform you that we are not in the muggle world of not having any post coming through our letter boxes on a Sunday nor are we in the world of wizardry world of the land of Harry Potter. You may ask why? Where are we? The land that you are walking on is the land of the Kennedy’s the most powerful family that ever lived; not the ex presidents of America don’t get me wrong they were amazing in their time of running.

Ah here we are. I have become so pleased that you guys have become extremely excited and finding out more of my other old diary entries. As you could see I’ve changed a fair bit on the whole presenting it with new pictures; new post to go with it, and many more.

I just gives me the pleasure that door has become widely open with flooding arms like an old pal that hasn’t forgotten after all this time. Reinventing old categories like Everyday Online Diary Entries has become more of an eye opener for me because when I first started it I didn’t know what to expect or would it take off like it would have done now.

I am now I’m revisiting some of my old categories and creating new ones for that category as you have now seen one of the new ones Everyday Evening Post. I am currently working on bringing back one of you guys favourite category that I haven’t done for a long time since February 2018. Watch this space with that one but it is in now going to be part of the support of Life On The Open Road Project. So watch out for that one.

Keep an out for the new updated and cool categories coming out over the coming weeks. Remember to subscribe and follow to my blog to be able to stay in touch of what’s coming up or just subscribe as you will get on going emails what’s just been posted.

Now let’s get you guys back home in the comfort of where you left wether it was you’re living room, outside, bedroom, bathroom or where ever you are. Remember you can’t tell anyone where the secret cave is.

Peace and love

Everyday Topics: (7.6.18) Thursday’s Topics: I could shoot myself in the foot with this one.

Okay guys I could shoot myself in the foot with this one here; yet this is my opinion and I respect other people’s opinions too, everyone has opinions neither of us are right or wrong. It’s brought to my attention in the last couple of days that I’ve been watching a few people’s videos to which I’m leaving out because I actually like their content. However what goes behind the scenes doesn’t bother me what so ever because at the end of the day it’s not my business nor do I really want to know what’s going on. I’m one of those people who like to pry on other people’s problems or anything. I just hate the whole attention, attention seeking and play off the whole who has more fan base or subscribers whatever they want to cool it.

I just enjoy the videos that they make at the end of the day; if they make me laugh, make me be on edge, make me want to come back for more then that’s great because at the end of the day I respect them for who they are and don’t really need to share their whole life stories like other people seem to do like it’s a home diary. For example: Big Brother Style. Some people like to do it, some people like to do other things that are different and have their own twist to it all. Yeah I write diary entries but I don’t tell you guys my life story in them; I literally choose what I want to share, what content I want to write about and plan it to make sense.

I don’t understand one thing people who say “I made you big” “no I made you big” and so on and so forth. I don’t actually care how they do it to be honest because at the end of the day fame doesn’t really bother me; you may find how much people think I did this on my own, it took me years to do and etc but yet if someone helped you along the way wouldn’t you be grateful that they helped you to get onto the platform?

Instead of being grateful or anything they just split off from you and cause conflict between all the friends that you both know. It’s just silly and childish at the end of the day. Unless your one of those people who fake making their videos; harass other YouTubers because they like them thinking that you’re going out with them, spreading lies that people stole you’re ideas and everything else. Also making it on the news saying you’re homeless and making a YouTube video saying “today is my last day in my home. I am now homeless” oh come on firstly use your brain and common sense.

First off all if you were made homeless you wouldn’t be still making videos; you wouldn’t have you’re camera to make videos still, and most importantly you wouldn’t have anywhere to edit or upload you’re video or videos. Secondly if you’re account has been cancelled or what ever it is that they do; you can’t make another YouTube account under the same name because they will find out, and shut that one down as well. Thirdly I can tell someone is lying, a fake and everything else years of experience with people in the real world. Acting like you’re all hard paying other people to do the work for you to make you look good because they are terrified of you as you might do something to them. Oh please just get over yourself man.

People take years to get where they are; things don’t happen over night trust me I’ve been doing blogging since the end of November 2015, it’s taken me this far to where I am with 1,317 subscribers I think I last checked and at the end of the day I’m doing the blogging and the writing for myself because I love writing and I want to become a writer. I also like to show people who have confidence issues, low self esteem and many more that they can do things if they put their minds to it and stick at it. Trust me I’ve been through a lot in my life. I’ve taken on so many challenges in my life away from the world of today.

I always say to anyone who is reading this or someone says to me I can’t do this. I stick to this saying for Life On The Open Road Project “be yourself, love yourself, don’t let negativity people bring you down and most importantly don’t let your own negativity mind bring you down” I believe that people can do things if they put their mind to it changing what they think about themselves take chances that you want to do with your life. Just make the right decisions and not the wrong ones.

I know I’m quite straight forward in this blog than I normally am but I just wanted to put it out there that you make a decision wether a youtubers or any other blogger you come across tries to win you over or make you think the other person is wrong. Just don’t let them manipulate you in any other way because at the end of the day it’s you’re mind who you want to watch, read or be friends with if your a blogger reading this or a new blogger just about to start out. Just be you and that’s all that matters don’t let people change of who you are or what you should do with your life or your content.

I just want what’s best for you at the end of the day that’s all. Just be you and stay true to yourself no matter what the out come is. Try their idea if it doesn’t work it doesn’t work because at the end of the day you have to find away what works for you. Apologies if this became a rant but I just wanted to get this sort of topic out there in one peace.

Love you all. You are you that’s what all that matters.
