  • To The Bloggers Who Think They Are Not Good Enough; You Are

    Everyone has doubts. We all have days when we feel small – smaller than others – and inappropriate. It’s always an uncomfortable situation, regardless of what you do. If you work in an office, for instance, your coworkers might notice that you are becoming a little quiet than usual, as if waiting for a better time when you would feel stronger and safer. Days like this happen to the best of us! But if you’re a blogger, you don’t have the luxury of staying quiet. The purpose of your activity is to be seen and read, which can feel like an impossible challenge when your self-confidence becomes an obstacle. You…

  • Making that leap! When the world is trying to discourage you.

    Obstacles are thrown in our path all of the time, and in the world of creativity, there appears to be the perception that it’s a pipe dream, something that isn’t attained, apart from it being a “nice hobby”- something that doesn’t pay the bills! And as a blogger, facing discouragement is par for the course. And after a while, it’s not just frustrating, but it can be supremely annoying that you’ve got to face people putting you down.

  • Keeping Things Fresh

    A couple of posts ago, I wrote about my boyfriend and I being “that couple” and the responce was overwhelming! Needless to say we are still that couple and I started thinking about all of the things we do for each other that keep us that way. It’s almost been 1 year and we haven’t stopped trying to keep things “fresh” since day 1. I really enjoy that we BOTH make such an effort in our relationship. Most of you know prior to this relationship I’ve been in nothing but terrible ones, ones that involved me doing everything and geting nothing in return. I can’t even describe how differntly things…

  • Top 5 Favorites

    I was tagged by my girl Lindsay @ The Flynnigans to share some of my top 5 favorites, which you’ll see below.  This tag was created by Hannah from A Tiny Girl’s Big World. She wanted to create a tag that would allow a little bit of an insight into the writer of their favourite blog. The idea of the tag is: “There are a series of topics and you have to answer each one with 5 answers (Only once in your post can you add a sixth if you’re really stuck on a particular topic). This way, your readers have a chance to find out a little more about you and…

  • Always wear your invisible crown

    Well it’s March 14 and it’s a damn blizzard here in Rhode Island with spring right around the corner. I’m on my 2nd girly rom-com of the day and my first can of soup. Needless to say I thought it would be a good time give you guys some personal stuff, since I have been slacking on the blogging sphere. The biggest news is that I’m MOVING!! Yes, you are reading that right, I am finally moving out, since ending my relationship last October and living with my mother. I found the cutest place in North Attleboro, MA, so yes, I am leaving the 401 for now. I’m moving in…
