This week for the new month and a new week is something that I would like everyone to understand.
For the record of this I would like to remind people what I do and why I do it. I also give people the opportunity of what they believe and what they don’t believe; you may think I’m faking it or lying about my blogs, that’s why I start putting subject headings like my online diary entries because at the end of the day it’s just a story weather it’s real or not. I know the truth otherwise I wouldn’t of published it in the first place. Let me break this down for you so you know how I work and how I do things if you want to become a blogger or a writer.
The burning question of why I blog? This is because I want to be a writer; blogging is another format for me to get myself of the ground, along with the whole base of acknowledging my writing is good and people enjoying my work but also respect me for what I write. Yes I use research and turn into a story or share my views on certain matters of life that means to me. Yes I may share some personal things on my blogs because I believe that people need to understand what people struggling but also to how people can relate to the same things. The fact that I don’t give a too whoots about people who think they are right or they are wrong because at the end of the day they believe what they believe and I believe what I believe at the end of the day. Not everyone is the same as each other otherwise we won’t be able to be controversial at all. The whole world wouldn’t go round if we could even try to make it to.
In life there’s always going to be critics out there; whether it’s Newspapers, media, press, friends, families or even fake friends or just wannabes. You either just have to believe in yourself of not listening to all of the critics who try to take you down because at the end of the day who is right and who is wrong? Your the one who’s going to be right as it’s you who knows what is happening in your life not them, you tell them something and they could just spiral it out of control and put you down no matter what.
Yes it’s horrible and eats you up. At the end of the day you ask yourself do I give up something that you love or continue to push through the pain barriers and stamp out all the negativity that’s coming towards you? Ask yourself those two questions. You don’t have to tell me that’s your choice to tell or not.
To be able to overcome them all is who do you believe your critics or yourself? Someone once told me that you should believe in yourself; take no nonsense of other people because all they want to do is bring you down because they think your better than them and think they are going to loose their power over you. You know something the amount of times I wanted to give up blogging because people come to me and say is it all true and etc because they are concerned or go to someone else and get them involved. That hurts the most; it goes to show how much you can trust people who believe the internet world more than the actual person, and everyone shares their feelings on the internet but for me as a writer and a blogger I use my emotions through the stories that I write because that’s how I know to sell my blogs and stories to people to get them to read it. I don’t actually express my feelings to anyone else when I’m with them unless it’s the most closet friends who actually seen me cry that’s when I talk about things in private.
I like to put this out there when I write blogs I do not have to continually say this is a story or this is a poem or this my actual blog post. I should have the right to be able to express my form of different types writing media in the way that I want to, not having to have people dictating me what I can and can’t do.
The fact that I’m slowly but surly giving up my favourite chocolate and junk food. After having a row with someone which lead me to tears; I thought and agreed with them that I should log out of all of my social media accounts, so far I’m doing great with it after a day.
Why I am I having a detox social media time? It’s because I spend way too much time on it; during the time I’m bored and yes it gets me into trouble when I look up things that I really don’t want to know, that will put thoughts into my head and start believing in things. Then it causes more problems further down the line in your life wether it’s something that you may think “oh no one will find out” sadly it’s true there’s lots of things that people can find out and report back to your work place.
There are so many snitches in this world you barely escape from; to be fair I have had something similar that has happened to me, but heyho not going into that detail. Yeah I still have my accounts on but because I’m not using them it’s far easier for me to focus on what I’m doing like blogging and etc than distracting myself and seeing what other people are talking about.
I still can use them as for my blogging network connection as it’s all connected to each account; the fact that I don’t have to do anything after I pressed published it does everything for me, yes it’s going to be hard after certain number of days but I know I can do it because I’ve just completed day 5 of detoxing my favourite chocolate and junk food even when I want them so badly recently. However it’s getting to the point of pushing me forward in to determination of I want to do this; I want to beat it, there’s nothing stopping me from doing it. It’s okay I still can gain access to them all and be able to respond.
The updates and announcements for this week of 24th July 2017.
This week I want to make a quick announce that I have been posting a few of my blogs on Vocal Media; I’m not leaving my official harding working blog, readers and followers, but I thought of joining with Vocal Media to be able to help fund the official the website to keep it going.
I would like you guys to check it all out along with checking out other people’s blog work as well. I also would like you to help me share the link that I have attached. https://vocal.media/authors/lizzy-arrow
I’m going to give this ago on how to guide you through how to create a blog/website. I your using this guide for any other website; this will help you create the basic layout but from there on, I don’t have much knowledge on the front of selling part. As I am currently focusing on one bit at the time.
Good morning lovely people yep its that time again this morning; that we are here with a new week, new month and summer has finally arrived as the longest day has been and gone. This week I wanted to write about the whole how to create a website guide; I was talking to my friend yes it was Caspian but he was asking me is it possible to create a blog or a page for a charity, so it got me thinking about the way he wanted to know things and how it all worked because he has other people to do that sort of work for him.
I will try my best to guide you all the best of my ability to talk you through it all; as I generally just mess about it with the whole idea of the website idea, to see where it all fits to be honest. People have game plans on how they want their website or blog to work; for me I tried that but it doesn’t work for me, as I am more of a visual learner and explore how things work.
To start with you need to know what you want to call your blog (this is also goes along with the whole company process); a blog name is where you can create and build to make it more stand out than other competition, this will get you know and talked about. For example when I started my blog out for the first time; I wasn’t too sure what to call my blog at the time, I had at least three different types of blogs on the go. Yet lizzysweeklyblogs came out the strongest because I was more on the blog site; creating ideas for it, seeing where it would take me and it wasn’t until august 2016 I started to think hang on let’s see if I can make it into my own blog domin and etc.
Once I had my blog name I went with wordpress.com; with the first basic thing that I tried, it did take me awhile to get going with limit that that I had to begin with. It was okay as I was going as I started to write more blogs; more readers were coming to look at my website, the more encouragement that I had to continue in writing the blogs. This took me about a year and two months to get to build up my readers; the creditably of knowing my work as a blogger, but most importantly a writer within oneself was given the opportunity to know that I am a better than I think I am. To be tell myself to stop being negative towards myself; to say that I am better than this I can do this, your not that sort of person that everyone thinks you are.
In August 2016 I thought I’ll try out the whole run my own domin and etc; so I first went with VistaPrint to be honest it’s okay for normal businesses like shops, etc but I wouldn’t recommend the whole blogging side of things. It was okay doing the layouts and how I wanted it to be like but when it came to the actual blogging side of things; not so great as it wasn’t the way I wanted my blogs to look, as it was big pictures dominating the writing. To which point it wasn’t getting me anywhere; which was bringing me down a lot, as I felt like it was making me a failure as a writer. That was when I went back to my safety net of wordpress.com for a while; so that I could rebuild myself up again, knowing that I’ve got my back up plan to catch me when I needed it the most.
Then by February 2017 I had decided to go and transfer the whole thing to another host; to which is so it made easier for me to still use my domin as I brought it from the previous website that I had started with my own personal domin, this was because I was so use using wordpress and I knew what I was working with and what I wanted my website like to be. Due to the fact that when I was using VistaPrint it wasn’t doing what I wanted it to do; the whole blog post itself wasn’t what I had hoped for. I explained a lot about VistaPrint side of things back in the last paragraph; so I asked in a facebook group of bloggers which is the best blog host and etc to use to keep your blog name but also cheapest, someone had said to me that TOSHost correct me if I got that wrong.
So I went to have a look at it then I started to do the transfer of everything that; I had from applying to take ownership of my blog name, which took 7 days, once that was sorted I had hit another block road and I had to apply for wordpress.com again but this time with my brought domin name. It wasn’t too bad as I had the process was still 7 days but for me it was painful; but I did have my basic line of my old blog website to go on.
After all the hard work of money waiting, paying the fees and etc. I had finally managed to start my new blog website; whilst doing that I was still doing my blogs using my basic blogs, by the time I started to think do I transfer my old blogs or do I start fresh and I decided to start fresh new blogs. Yes the fear of building up my readers and etc is always going to be hard but at the end of the day; what are the risks of taking it serious or not, I kind of do the risk takers at least twice now.
All I can say is that if you want something; people don’t believe in you in your past or around you, you either believe them or you choose to act on it and prove to yourself that you can do it. I did that I keep on proving myself and proving people that I can do things because of rubbing it into people’s faces that I can do things. I believe in myself and prove to people who that I can do it better what they think. You can do the same.
