Goodbye 2014, Hello 2015

Happy New Year!  You can insert the sound of one of those party horn/whistle things here.

Go ahead.. imagine some streamers.  Maybe some confetti.  And pretend I'm typing this whilst in a party dress with impeccable hair (the wave stayed) and makeup (the glitter is staying on my eyes where it should be).   Whatever you do, don't imagine me in my PJs sitting at my desk, contemplating what box set to watch now that I've finished season one of Brooklyn Nine Nine (binge-watched in 24 hours, thats how much I liked it) and Netflix doesn't have season two yet.

I don't know what it is about this time of year that makes me want to start a blog.  I've blogged before in my time, but those have been long deleted.  Currently, I have a YouTube channel.  I tweet.  I Instagram. Sometimes, I even podcast.

But the blog thing... I never seem to be happy with it.  So I'm trying again in 2015.

Mostly I'll be trying not to compare myself to others (I have terrible blog envy and the blogs I envy love will before long be listed in the blogroll above).  I'll be writing my thoughts, experiences and all that jazz.  Probably not a lot of jazz, actually.  I just didn't want to say "stuff" because it feels like such a lazy word and I was trying to avoid being a lazy blogger.  Am I overthinking this already?  I am aren't I?

Okay.  I'll finish this post here.  First posts are always so awkward. Thanks for reading, hopefully you'll stop by again (please?!).

I have no idea what 2015 has in store for me, but I'm excited to see whats coming up.

More concise blog posts, hopefully.


  1. Happy New Year! Don't let other 'perfect' blogs get you down. Sometimes I find myself looking at the perfect blogs and think, "Why the actual eff am I even tryyying?!" But I push through because I find enjoyment out of it. Nope, my posts may not be as spectacular or polished as most of the big name bloggers out there and probably never will be, but I'm going to continue doing it just because I like the blogging community. Everyone is SO kind! You seem to have a fun personality, so I look forward to what you do in 2015!
