I think I'm setting out on this year's Blog Every Day May with a healthy dose of cynicism. I'm just going to put this out there right now that I'm probably not going to manage to blog every day. However, I'm using the excellent topics that Elizabeth has come up with, in an attempt to get me back into the swing of things. Get me used to writing about things and get the old cogs whirring in the brain again. Too much crocheting of amigurumi animals and watching terrible terrible TV does not do wonders for your brain I can tell you.
So today's topic is supposed to be an introductory one in which I tell the hordes of new readers who have found their way to my blog all about what I'm about.
And I'm already stuck.
I think I fall into the category of Lifestyle blogger. But only if your Lifestyle includes the following:
- Not blogging very often
- Crocheting stuff
When people say "Oh I just blog about this and that" I'm never sure if they mean it or not. I really really do. I might throw in a book review or I might talk about how I'm trying to get better at running. I might post about the castle in the town where I live or I might just shove a picture of a gerbil in your face.
One thing my blog is not is a home for sponsored posts. I realise that that makes me something of a rarity in blogging nowadays. I feel like the cranky old Grandma who talks about how she was blogging before everyone was even born, but when I first started blogging sponsored posts weren't a thing at all and I didn't even realise they were a thing until they snuck up behind me. There was a time when I would have quite liked to do sponsored posts and just didn't get offered to do anything, but I have more recently made a conscious decision not to do sponsored posts (and still don't get offered anything anyway, but that's by the by).
I don't really have the type of blog that lends itself to sponsorship to be honest.
Unless people want to send me gerbil things.
And if you've made it this far and still want to read on then God bless you. I love you already.
You can also follow me on Twitter - I have a protected account due to...well....a whole lot of stuff I won't bore you with, but send me a request and you too can be privy to pictures of crocheted animals and gerbils.
Well. This is off to a good start isn't it?
When really all you need to do is read my Things You Should Know page which contains all the things that you need to know. Probably.
I like gerbils.
