Here we are now.

All the lads.

On Day 3 of the Bloggers Challenge.

Today’s assigned post is on the “Positives about blogging”

Firstly, I apologise in advance as day 3 has coincided with my niece’s christening and thus I have overindulged in one wine too many.

Therefore, I am possibly in the midst of writing my very first drunken blog post. Uh oh! Yeoo!

So bear with me while I attempt to remain classy, dignified and interesting.

I’m really bad at this.

You know when you’re trying so hard to seem sober that you overact and make a bigger dickhead of yourself than had you actually been sober?

Well, that’s me at present.

Does that last sentence even make sense?

Fuck knows.


“Positives about blogging”.

A few weeks back, I was at a wedding where I was giving myself the old drunken mirror pep talk.

You know, where you look in the mirror, establish your current state of intoxication, give yourself a nod and a giggle and tell yourself to cool your shenanigans.

“They’ve had enough of you for one night” I told myself.

Just then, a girl approached me…

Telling me she had heard of my blog…

…Well, didn’t I nearly die.

I truly panic when someone mentions my blog.

That coupled with the lingering pause before they pass comment on it makes me feel nauseous.

She thinks I’m an arsehole.

I can see it in her eyes.

Look at her looking at me with the hurt and the disappointment.


Yes. Hurt.

…And why would she be hurt exactly?

‘Cos she’s a woman with thoughts, dreams and feelings and she’s allowed to hurt.

…Um, carry on then…

She then goes on to say that she hasn’t read it herself but she has heard good things.

I could have kissed her.

Honestly, to hear of someone taking the time to read, let alone enjoy the crap I write has to be one of the biggest compliments in the world.

That right there has to be one of the biggest positives.

I’ve always known I need to write.

It sounds ridiculous.

It sounds cringey.

Just admitting it makes me want to punch myself in the face.

Yet the unshakable urge remains.

It is incredibly frustrating and daunting to have no idea what you should write or where to begin but blogging, I hope, will help me figure it all out.

As I’ve told several others, if you feel like blogging, go for it!

You won’t regret it.

Now I’ve lost my train of thought so I’m off to get myself another glass of wine.

I’m not sure this post makes the slightest bit of sense but I guess that’s part of the mystery…

Live long and prosper.
