Day 1 – 14DaysOfWriting

A 15 minute stream of consciousness writing exercise. Help, where do I start? Already misspelled my first word but what can you do. I’m looking forward to the rest of the 14 days of writing, wherever that will take me. I’m officially starting on day 3 due to my mother being here and just not…

Hippie

Back in July 2014, I wrote this post: Earlier today, I got this tweet from one of my friends: “In fact I double dare you! 🙂 Writers yearn to be read! Let us read you!” and decided to start this blog. I’m scared of people actually reading my random thoughts, short stories and random ramblings…

Back to Youtube?

Wait, video? Seems I’m recording more videos than blogging these days, even though #Blogtober preparations are well on the way at this stage! I used to love making video and uploading them to YouTube. General silliness, Ice Bucket challenge in 2014, drunk chatty videos, everything. Hope to do more with it, including businessy stuff for…

#WhoNeedsYourYes

Apologies, My foreign readers. This is a very open post about the upcoming referendum in Ireland about repealing the Eighth Amendment. Feel free to stop reading, unless you’re interested in pregnant people’s rights, abortion and why this is extremely personal to me.

Nerd on the Radio funny!

Oops! Honestly, I’ve been surprising myself this last year that I haven’t had an awful lot of big fails since the start of my radioshow, Nerd on the Radio. That also meant that something was about to happen sooner or later. And it did, today. A little backstory might be in order here. I have…

Back to blogging, for me.

Back to blogging, for me? Back to blogging, for me. I don’t know why I stopped, think it was a combination of writer’s block and complete lack of motivation to do anything. SAD tends to hit during the wintertime and I generally don’t want to get out of bed or do anything while it’s in…

30. Vlogtober on Youtube!

Vlogtober? After talking about it (and sometimes actually uploading) for years, I finally started a proper Youtube channel. This month, October, is Vlogtober over on the channel. What that means is that I will be posting a new video every day. Sometimes it will be an actual vlog and I’ll post about my day, sometimes…
