I often sit in front of my little computer, brainstorming ideas to write about. All I get is a literal brain storm. I procrastinate easily (for example, I wrote this whilst in class and it has been sitting in drafts for a month). People always say that blogging isn’t about the readers, it’s about the writer. It’s our way of expressing our way of words. Apparently, I haven’t had many words to express lately. By the looks of things, this is a blog about what to blog about on your blog when you’re out of blog ideas. Snazzy.
The first month of college has been hell. Did I say hell? I meant hell-a awesome. You don’t have to sit through classes that you don’t like (maths) and you can wear what ever you like (so many fur coats).
In my English class, our homework is to write about what matters to us. Easy, right? I care about a lot of things. Until I had paper infront of me and tried to write about something that mattered. I decided to write in a way that I already know works for me. Exactly like this.
I think having a sense of humour is important (if you haven’t met me, I like to have a laugh and I like to make people laugh. A lot). Being funny and appreciating funny things matters to me. And so, I begin the process of writing an essay about being funny. If it doesn’t get an A+ then I don’t know what will.
I write articles based on what I think people will read (bad). But I have my own writing style which makes anything I write fun (better). I write about things that I like, and it’s just an extraordinary bonus when an extra 30,000 people like it, too (very good). Lots of people ask me advice on how to write, what to write about, how to get people reading it. However, I am nobody but myself. I’m just Ellie to you (“E” to some). I write the way I want to because that’s the only way it’s different. I write things that interest me, which some people will find interesting too, and some won’t.
Things to keep in mind when you’re a blogger (or you want to be one (or you just need help with words)):
- Write for yourself, not for the likes and comments.
- I find that you tend to write better about something you care about (hence why I write a lot of fashion posts. I can’t get enough fur coats and leather jeans).
- If you wouldn’t say it in real life, don’t say it online.
- I like reading blogs where the author’s personality shines through their writing. If you like to crack jokes, share them. If you’re opinionated, tell us. Don’t be afraid, you can’t be judged here in the blog-o-sphere.
I proofread writing as I go along. So far, this has been about college, my English homework, what you should all write about, and I’m only 500 words in. If you are still reading, I applaud you greatly. True fans you are.
Back to where I started, college is so much better than high school. There’s lots of work but if you focus in class, no probs. Also, the college parties are crazy. I’m joking, we don’t get invited to parties because we sit at home reading books and eating pizza. Except for one time a few weeks ago, two of my girlfriends came over and we danced around my living room with Britney Spears cranked up and danced with my Louis Tomlinson cardboard cut-out.
(If you have nothing to write about, the above paragraph is an absolute last resort. I feel like you guys know too much.)
After one month of having writer’s block, I think this has proved to be a pretty informative post. I must say myself, I’m rather impressed. A little bit of everything and nothing at the same time.
Has anybody else noticed that it’s almost April? I swear that it was January like, two days ago.
