The Versatile Blogger Award

So yesterday I had two notifications from two of my favourite writers letting me know that they both nominated me for the Versatile Blogger Award!

Okay, so: Unknown facts about me, lets have a think…I share a lot with you y’know internet. Right. Uhm.

  1.  When I was little I wanted to be a jockey. I ended up only being 5″5, maybe I wasn’t even that mad to dream..
  2. In my home town a bull once escaped from the farmer’s market and strolled down the street past my brothers and I playing football.
  3. I have a lot of charming nicknames from friends / brothers that seem to stick. (Benjamin Button, Yoda, Frodo, Tina, Swampy..I could probably go on, but they’re the notable ones. You get the idea.
  4. I had long hair, right down to my arse at one point. From maybe 12 or so? to 18, it was awful. But I think more a point of being different than anything, and my parents let me do anything I wanted.
  5. I overly romanticise everything, be it from the past or thoughts of the future.
  6. I fucking hate Leonardo DiCaprio to the point of avoiding most movies he’s in for years before watching. I don’t even have a strong reason, don’t ask me.
  7. Other than sharing on the internet, I’ve only sung properly in front of two people in person. I get massive solo anxiety, even thought I played in bands in my teen years.

I came to the realisation that I don’t read as many blogs as I should. I sort of have a small amount of favourites that I stumbled upon and haven’t branched out much more. I don’t really have a top 15, I’m awful, I know.

So, these are my absolute favourites that I get excited to read with every new post they make, I love them all for varying reasons. Check them all out, because they’re brilliant in their own individual and awesome ways.

I quite commonly just quietly observe and relate to these people, I occasionally drop by with messages. I should comment more often, because I know how it’s such a nice feeling to know people are appreciating your writing.

Existentialists R Us

in the end, it’s smoke

Tired Of Dating




(My latest addition is a more recent discovery, I read the line “One thing is for sure, I’m in love with love. It’s such a beautiful thing.” and from there I’m sold, reading more of this blog today!

So there are only 8 blogs that I’m currently keeping up with on a constant basic, please point me towards more great people. I clearly don’t look enough, I’ve just happened to stumble across these ones along the way.

These guys are all great writers and are really interesting people, more importantly. I’d happily grab a pint (or a whiskey, or whatever other drink of choice) with each and every one of them and have an awesome time chatting about everything and anything.

Thanks for joining me along the way and for some reason finding me amusing. It’s muchly appreciated and to those I’ve mentioned in this blog: Thanks for being awesome, keep on keeping on. I love getting to read your newest posts.

  1. Whaaat!? Hair down to your bum bum bum! That’s awesome haha!

    There was a point in my life where I was in LOVE with Leo. Thank God that ship has sailed or else our friendship would be doomed!

    And, I hear you, I get AWFUL stage freight. It’s something that can be fixed-it just takes practice.

    I’m glad we stumbled upon each other. You’re awesome. Don’t ever forget that! xx

    • I did! It was quite a statement considering I played on every sports team and got so much shit for it!
      Thank god you don’t love Leo, I don’t know what it is about him, I just HATE his stupid face haha.
      I absolutely want to conquer the stage fright problem, I guess i’m fairly content recording and sharing my stuff online just now 🙂

      I’m really happy we stumbled upon each other, you have this good habit of making my day! So keep that up 🙂 ps, I obviously nominated you for the versatile blogger award too, figure it went without saying! xx

      • You girls are too kind :3
        I’ll do more I promise! ps, totally open to requests that I may or may not be able to cover! I get short of inspiration, and i’m a total perfectionist working on my own songs!

  2. Thanks for listing me, huzzah!

    I’m with her^ You had hair that long?! I’m totally jealous. Dang.
    You need to post more songs!!!! Make sure you let me know!!! I can understand performance anxiety though… I get that way when I let someone read my writing, I’m like “Oh lord, is it terrible? It’s terrible, isn’t it? You hate it. You hate me. I hate me.” It’s great.

    • I did! When I was maybe 10 or so my Uncle that lived in America came to visit and he had long hair, so I was sure that it was okay for guys to have long hair and my ‘rents let me grow it!
      I’m working on more songs I promise! I’ve been working on stuff this week but hitting speedbumps trying to edit and mix for the first time, I’m a total amateur.
      I promise something’s on the way soon and I’ll be sure to let you know!

      I’m exactly the same, I’ve only shared this blog with a couple of close friends and I rethink my writing now just because of that, I’m absolutely awful haha. I feel you.

      • I’m so glad we share that opinion! I try to just write exactly what’s on my mind, I never re-read my own blog posts too hah, I’d probably cringe and rewrite them all :p

  3. thank you so much and im so sorry i just got to see this! i opened the notification, and went to go back and couldnt find it ): but thank you thats so sweet and i love your blog as well and youre a great writer!
