Reasons to blog

Hey readers,

I have been blogging for over three years now and feel that some experience of this whole blogging malarky. If you have never blogged let me enlighten you as to why you should consider, as there are many positives attached to being a blogger.

Creativity.

Firstly, blogging can allow you to be creative. You don’t have to be a niche but if you want to that is cool because it will be your blog. Blogging can be about anything, it is diverse in the blogging world. You can literally write about anything from domestic abuse to reasons to eat baked beans. It is a great tool for creativity and a way to express yourself to the world.

Therapy.

When I started blogging it was a distraction as I was going through some personal trauma. Blogging also helped me write down my feelings and express myself. I have autism and really struggle with verbal and trying to work out how I feel. With blogging, I can take my time and ponder. Blogging has helped me express myself when I maybe wouldn’t have. Writing has helped me grow in confidence with working out how I feel and exploring reasons why I respond in the way that I do.

Spread awareness.

One positive about blogging is it can help raise awareness of a message you want to spread. Blog posts are fantastic as they are from the individual rather than an organisation. They are personal and tend to be raw, making it feel more real in a sense. Blogging is a platform to get your voice out there, anyone can read it and it isn’t edited like professionals and I think that is one of the best things about blogs is that they tend to be first-hand accounts. I have always loved when exploring topics to reach out to the first-hand account as it feels real, people have lived it and know what they are talking about.

You learn about yourself.

I think exploring yourself can be quite hard but when you write it allows you to think about things. It makes your analysis and sees things maybe you might not instantly think of. Over time I have learned more about me through blogging and expanding areas of myself when I write.

Built an engagement.

Now, I am no great communicator but I will say that it has helped me get engaged with people. You may stumble across people that in normal life you would never have the opportunity to meet. Some bloggers make long-term friendship and think that is beautiful that something positive can come out of blogging.

Opens up to opportunities.

Blogging opens up to opportunities such as reviewing items or attending events. I am not the most successful blogger in this aspect but reading a lot of blogs if you are good at the social side of things then there are many doors that can be opened.

Make money.

Now, I have made the odd bit of money here and there which is fab as it has helped me when I really needed it. Some people can make a career out of blogging which I think is such an amazing opportunity to do something that you love.

Better writer.

As I have been blogging for a long period of time I feel that it has helped me be a better writer. I can write more words and can express myself better, which is always a positive.

Dating for the older person

Hey readers,

Who says you can’t date when you’re older, not now we live in a more liberal era and rightly slow. You can still have fun and meet people to have a good time together when you’re older.

A great way to find new and fun people to share your time with and go on dates is through dating sites.

Husband & Wife

Now, I know what you are thinking, ugh dating sites are full of creeps but actually many people have been successful. With the older dating sites is a great way to meet like-minded older people to connect with.

There are so many dating websites to chose from, however, websites like older-dating.co.uk is appealing because it is designed specifically for the older person. As you get older it can be problematic to find people who are of similar age who is also looking to date. That is one of the good reasons to check out senior dating websites because there is more choice and you can find who is available.

I know there are a lot of websites that require membership but luckily there are also other websites that are free and let’s face it who doesn’t like something for free.

One good thing about online dating is that you can do it from the comfort of your own home, you can take your time and don’t have to rush. You can change your mind at any point and you’re in control of who you want to know.

With older dating, it is safe and easy to navigate so all you have to worry about is what kind of person you are looking for. With dating websites, you have the choice who you want to get to know. Each person registered with the dating website means they come with a profile – which in essence is their way to sell themselves. You can get a feel for that person and whether there is something that you like or something you have in common with. It is also fun to find new people especially if you have something in common with them.

Another bonus point to dating websites online is there is so much choice and you can look through different areas of the UK so you’re not just stuck in one place, therefore opening up more choice of different people available.

With looking at profiles you can look at specific categories that suit you and your personality. Whether it is religion, gender, smoker drinker etc.

With free online dating, there is no limitation with the number of profiles you can look at or how many messages you can send, giving you more flexibility to further your chance of finding a perfect match to you and your needs.

There is also support from the website regarding help with questions or concerns you may have. The sites also provide information on how to save when meeting people and also if you are struggling to navigate around the website they can assist you. Therefore making you feel comfortable in knowing what you are doing and having the safety to explore.

Specially delivered chocolate

Hey readers,

As we are fast approachFathers day (17th June) I think I have found the perfect present for any chocolate-loving daddy out there. It is personalised chocolate from an online company called Morse Toad. The idea is to choose a bad pun gifts and put it on to some tasty chocolate into a box. It is a fun and lovely way to add a personal touch to a present. Sometimes it can be hard to find a present for a man and not to make it so predictable so this is a perfect gift that adds a touch of thought to the gift.

I think one of the most appealing things about this chocolate gift is that it is a letterbox gifts so if your in a rush, you don’t have to go anywhere and can do all the work online and wait for it to be delievered to your letterbox.

You can add a picture card also to the box with a message. The picture card is something you can be kept after all the chocolate is eaten. It is an ideal size for putting in the wallet or on the fridge.

The delivery is super fast within 3 to 5 days and it is secure and comes in a shiny gold envelope making it feel luxurious.

You can add bad puns which are a playful way to add to a gift. I have used super dad that you can see in the pictures above so very ideal for Father’s day. to the chocolate such as super dads like I have in my pictures which is great for Father’s Day there.

I really like the packaging of the box, it is not over the top put fun and character to it. It will definitely put a smile on anyone’s face if they received this personalised gifts .

Also, do check out Morse Toad’s competiton where you can be in the chance to win £100 and 25 free boxes. You can enter here.

Looking for cheap transport?

Hey readers,

Travelling can be expensive business whether that be using or car or even public transport. A better way to travel and save costs is cycling, not only that but your doing exercise as well kills two birds with one stone.

To cut down costs even more instead of a good way to do research beforehand on deals before heading straight in and flashing the cash.

If you are browsing the internet a good place to explore is www.bike-discounts.co.uk.

Bike-discounts is a great site to check out the latest deals on bikes. Did you know that the site does not only cover bikes but also bike accessories from the top leading brands, such as Go Outdoors and Halfords.
