Hi guys! Oh my gosh it feels so good to be finally back. I’ve really really missed this.
So as I’m sure you’ve noticed, I took a bit of an unintentional blogging break for 3 weeks. January and February are usually extremely hectic for me because all of our final assignments are due, final presentations have to be presented and exams have to be sat for. So in between pulling all-nighters, compiling work, panicking, sleeping late, waking up early and having meltdowns and fights, I found that I could really not do much else. In fact, I have actually only read one book this whole month. One book. It was just that I barely had time to do anything besides, work, eat and attempt to catch as much sleep as I could. And yes. It was in that order. You know how when you have been working so hard and your brain is just so exhausted that just looking at a book makes everything in you just recoil? Yeah.
On the bright side, I did rediscover all the ways I used to rot my brains. I discovered Friends this month and I’m on season 2 now. I’ve also managed to get a sizeable following on that new Kendall and Kylie game (yes I succumbed. It’s a fun game where a pair of shorts cost more then a house. What’s not to love?)
So obviously, all that left no room for blogging and that was really hard for me because I just had so many ideas this month and for some reason, this month I was just really inspired. So what I did was, I made myself an editorial calendar. Yup. I finally decided that Tina probably was on to something with all her organising and scheduled posts and this weird thing she does where she actually plans ahead. So I made a calendar. Following it is another thing but at least I’m trying right?
I’ve also decided that I need to do better with this thing called interacting. So I have actually revived my blog’s Twitter page and I have been trying to participate in as many blogger chats as possible as well as scheduling tweets (thanks Tina). I have also revived my Bookstagram (It’s slow progress but I’m working on that one). So you know, if you love me, you could head on over and give me a little follow *hint hint*.
I have also finally figured out how to properly do my blog’s navigation! Yes I know. I know. I am quite slow. But you see I’ve been wanting a drop down menu for the longest time and I’ve wanted to properly organise my blog posts so that they are easier to find but I never knew how. So finally, Tina (I think we have all established that she is a much better blogger then me) taught me how to do it and whoopdeedo it was the simplest thing I’ve ever seen. I told you I’m slow. So yeah, look out for better navigation in the coming days!
Anyway, I am so exhausted right now. I need to sleep for like ten years before I can function again. This was just a quick update for you guys. I have planned a lot of posts up till March 14th which is when my holidays end and I start my 6-month long editorial internship at Youth.sg (it’s an online place for articles…and writing…and that kind of stuff…you know what I mean!) You can actually check out that site to see some of my work when I start working which would be cool.
But yes, I am so excited to be back. Thank you for sticking with me and thank you for being patient. I can’t wait to dive back into reading and working to take my blog to another level. I’m sorry that this was just a simple post but I just wanted to give you all a quick update. Tomorrow I have a very exciting giveaway that I will be posting about so stay tuned for that.
P.S. Go check Tina’s blog out and show her some love for being such an amazing and dedicated blogger as well as a generally awesome human being.
