I was checking out the layout of this blog and flipped that the followers are near a 100. I’ve been blogging on and off since graduating High School, and though “following” a blog didn’t start becoming a thing until much later, I never really kept a blog long enough to see if people would be interested. I used to just ramble about stuff and though I could have posted something more personal and is actually happening in my life – when there were actual things happening in my life – back then it felt too personal and talking about it in a blog would somehow decrease it’s “meaning”. Or maybe it’s just the insecurities working it’s magic, making me feel like I’m a less interesting person than I actually am. I mean I get it, a major part of living my life is making it a lot more interesting for me, and I’m living it. Ok, let’s not go there.
WordPress has been really good to me. And I actually feel I have actual friends that stemmed from being more open about my opinions and what not. Even if I talk a lot of nonsense. Who knew right?
But! In the interest of keeping this blog relevant and interesting – for all of us – I thought of making some changes and I’d like to get your opinion on it. Or not. Blogging to me has always been a one sided conversation but you’re always free to butt in. Come on. Do it.
Some ideas old and new
CPCWC – Crappy Pictures of Crap With Witty Captions
I don’t take a lot of pictures, especially of myself. I’m just awkward about it. Plus, I’m not confident enough to produce a selfie. But, I did enjoy sharing some Crappy Pictures with you guys. So maybe I can keep doing that and just have different editions. Like Crappy Pictures – High School edition, where I show you stupid pictures from my teenage years. Crappy Pictures – Phone storage edition, where I show you some of the pictures that is stored on my phone for some reason that I should really be deleting. But the challenge is, coming up with a witty caption besides #nofilter.
Dora’s Book Club
It sounds a bit narcissistic naming a book club after me, but I made an Instagram account for this thing and dorasbookclub was available as a username and I can only tolerate “username not available” a few times. But the idea is to read books to be assigned on a weekly basis – or depends on the length of the book – and have a review and discussion about it. I’m really into books and I think writing about them is a good way of flexing my writing skills. So if you like books and talking about books and if you like recommending books or if you’re a writer that we should know about. Jump in!
Reactions to The Walking Dead
of course! Or until the season ends. Then we’ll see if there’s any other show worth talking about. Of course there are, but you know what I mean.
I’m still keeping this thing. I enjoy this waaay too much to stop doing this. I know I missed on last Wednesday but I was busy with work and I don’t half ass Weird Wednesdays. Ever.
The lack of Dear Dora post is not lost on me. I have several emails pending for this segment, to which I have already extended my apologies, but I was thinking of making this in a video format actually, since some of you (actually about 3 of you – you know who you guys are) enjoyed that stupid video that I made during my illness, maybe I should keep doing it.
And also I have a Facebook page that I thought would be a great tie up with this because oddly enough, 1 or 2 of the kids who sent me Dear Dora related emails do not have WordPress and I really want them to see the response that some of you may have about their dilemmas.
P.S. The Facebook page is still under construction. But what isn’t under construction?
Where I talk about a shitload of things that are making me sooo happy that I flail.
I’m on Twitter now (shameful plug)! Because why not. Twitter Tuesdays is when I can answer any tweeted questions in 140 characters. Also when I follow lovely people on Twitter, so if you’re on Twitter, send me a hello and I will hunt you down.
Ok I’m done. I think I’m out of ideas.
Stay sexy WordPress.
