Blogging No Man's Land

"Good morning, gooood morning! It's great to stay up late..." ♫ ♪

Even though I didn't stay up late and was naturally up quite early this morning. When I woke up, however, I couldn't breathe and my face felt like a balloon as it seems my housemate left the heating on all night! 

I digress.
I realised, after over 18months of this blog (with rather inconsistent posts, I must add), I am still in blogging no man's land! I don't really know what I want this blog to be about. Well, I know I want it to be about me (why did that sound so self-absorbed?!), all the things I like, and hate, doing and just generally about my (limp excuse of a) life but I never know which things to include or leave out. 

Admittedly, most of the time, there's no post because I end up not having time (read: I don't make time) to sit down and post content I had planned. And then the topic feels stale so I just toss it aside, maybe for a rainy day.

I think I shall just stop worrying about what to post and just post it! And of course, make time to actually sit down and post it. If I just stayed in at the weekend and blogged, rather than going out shopping and/or partying, my bank account would be hella happy!

So, matter resolved? Yeh, probably. I seem to have just 'talked it out' with myself, right here, for your viewing pleasure. Aren't you just so thankful. 

But now, sadly, I have to leave you to complete my long list of errands and chores today e.g. bank, food shopping, bathroom cleaning, vacuuming, and completing an all-important beautifying ritual for my dinner date with R tonight. ;) He seems to think we will just be able to turn up to this nice Italian restaurant tonight and get a table. It is normally pretty quiet, I suppose. Fingers crossed.

I did have some topics in the pipeline so I hope to be finished with my duties to share them with you -- even if the Valentine's themed DIY, crafts and cooking maaaay be a tad late now.

Right, shower time (should sound distinctly similar to hammer time).



  1. Ultimately your blog is an extension of yourself so just post things you want to post :)

    Happy Valentine's Day to you, Gingerella! ♥♥

  2. I've been going through a bit of angst about my own blog lately, but I think that's only natural - most people go through periods of being less certain about ourselves and that makes us question things like blogs which, I think, are projections of ouselves onto the Internet.

    I really enjoy your posts anyway, so keep up the good work!

  3. I went thru that the early part of last year, but that was only because I wasn't being TRUE to myself....and blogging about: ME. Now, like overnight, I became a "blogger success"...when I finally just blogged about what's funny and inspires me, people just came in and shared their thoughts. I think beyond me having to BE true to myself,I just had to find my audience.

  4. Yeah, I used to be like that but then I decided that...

    Fuck it. Just don't think and just post. It's gotten me this far.

  5. Hope the date went well :)

    Happy Valentine's Day!


  6. if this is blogging in no man's land than i'm impressed :)

  7. Hi Gingerella

    Hope you had a good weekend - don't forget to tell us all about it!

    Anyway, there's a little something for you over at my blog.
