Starting a new month has always been a pretty exciting time for me. I love the idea that a new start is here and I get to reevaluate my life and my goals. Am I making progress on my goals? Are the goals I’ve set still relevant? If the answer is no, then I get to rethink the goals and see how I can keep improving myself and my life.
For those of you who read my last blog post, you’ll know that my life has been changing a lot. Since those changes, I’ve been thinking about my goals even more. So I figured that this would be a perfect time to write a post here all about my July goals.
Today is 1st of April which signifies the first day of Stress Awareness Month. I feel like stress is something that is often ignored as we all just assume that it’s ‘normal’ to be stressed. However, stress is not something that should be ignored because it can lead to people feeling depressed and anxious. That’s why it’s so important to start talking about stress right now.
During our lives, we encounter a lot of times that we face moments of stress. Maybe we don’t even recognise the stress or maybe the stress simply overwhelms us. No matter what kind of stress you are feeling, it is valid and needs to be spoken about.
The WWE Royal Rumble 2020 in on Sunday, January 26th, live on the WWE Network. I’m pretty excited as I only fully got into WWE last year for the Royal Rumble 2019 so I’m a bit of a fan over the pay-per-view. It’s the time of year where all the wrestlers point at the WrestleMania sign and the crowd all cheer.
As always the PPV will feature the 30-person Royal Rumble matches for both the women and the men. There’s also matches for the Universal Championship and the Women’s Championships.
Here’s the match card as we know: 1. Men’s Royal Rumble Match 2. Women’s Royal Rumble Match 3. Strap Match for the Universal Championship: The Fiend Bray Wyatt (c) vs. Daniel Bryan 4. Raw Women’s Championship Match: Becky Lynch (c) vs. Asuka 5. Smackdown Women’s Championship Match: Bayley (c) vs. Lacey Evans 6. Falls Count Anywhere Match: Roman Reigns vs. King Corbin 7. Sheamus vs. Shorty G 8. United States Championship Match: Andrade (c) vs. Humberto Carrillo
I figured that I would share my predictions and wishes for the Royal Rumble because it’s a fun way to get involved.
I realise that we are over halfway through the first month of 2020 but I feel like sharing this post will help myself and while I’m here, it might help you out too.
During 2019, I grew gradually on most of my social media accounts. I think that the only platform that didn’t grow much was Instagram as I didn’t put in much effort on that platform at all.
Don’t get me wrong, I do love Instagram for the Stories and keeping up with people’s lives but I never know what to post on my feed which makes my photo uploads a little bit messy so people won’t care for my account, which is fine because everyone is allowed to enjoy or not enjoy whatever they want.
I can’t tell if it’s just me or if the world of blogging seems to be turning more and more selfish. People only tend to be commenting on other people’s posts if they will get a comment back. People only tend to retweet someone’s promo tweet if they think you’ll retweet theirs. It’s as if everyone is just out for themselves and they will only help you if it will also help them.
Don’t get me wrong, there are nice people out there who just want to help you. Some of the people in the blogosphere are so so so kind that I just want to hug them and never let them go!
There are two things that I just wish people would start doing in the world of blogging..
Actually Read Blogger’s Posts
I feel like this is the one thing that people aren’t doing anymore. When people are taking part in a comment swap, they scan the post and leave a very generic comment. It kind of annoys me though because people spend a lot of time writing there posts. Sure, we love getting comments but if you’re anything like me, I am pretty sure that you would would way prefer people to actually read the post.
More writing instead of 100 photos per post
Something that I noticed recently is that people are hardly writing things on their blog anymore. They are becoming more and more like photo diaries. Don’t get me wrong, I do love looking at photos but if I want to do that then I will head over to Instagram. If I’m reading your blog then I mostly want to hear what you have to see and maybe see the odd photo or two throughout the post. Maybe that’s just my personal preference but that’s just what I want to see.
I hope that the world of blogging in 2020 brings you lots of joy no matter what you choose to do with your blog. What would you like to see more of in the blogosphere?
