No more online moping + a short survey

It’s not really much fun reading about someone feeling sorry for themselves is it?

You have humoured me with those couple of break-up posts, where I wallow in self-pity in return for virtual hugs, but it’s not jolly. Nobody actually wants to hear about how sad someone else is, and it doesn’t exactly fit with the tongue-in-cheek, heavily self-deprecating, often-times blatantly promotional tone now does it?

Enough already.

Instead I shall sob quietly into my pillow alone and return to complaining about really unimportant things like car air fresheners, offering you competitions and occasionally trying to persuade you to buy something. Come on everyone, let’s embrace the spirit of modern day blogging!

In fact, how about if we switch it around, have a bit of a fresh start, and you tell me what you’d like to read about? Do you like it when I rant, or do you prefer heartfelt monologues? Are you after world events or something a little more frivolous? Want to see pictures of every room in my house or read recipes? Perhaps you love my made-up infographics?

Or maybe your vote is with a picture everyday of an animal in a different item of festive clothing?

    I like a bit of everything, but while I don’t want you to feel sad, do feel that it’s nice to actually see a bit of real you in between all the other stuff :)

      Thanks Jax – it’s actually been a very useful reminder to me to make things more personal. I think I get so carried away with the online persona that I forget that people might actually be interested in me without all the gin-swilling ‘trying to be funny’ stuff.

    I would like to vote for little animals in clothes please.

    All of the above, it’s the variety that keeps me coming back to your blog!

    Can you blog about fun things to do in Norwich if you are stuck here for the day. Oh, and can you blog it in the next twenty minutes as I’ve been here since 8am and am here until 6pm…thanks :-)

    I vote for pictures of animals in costumes, featuring you in a matching outfit! No seriously I actually would like a bit more ‘real you, real life’ stuff in amongst plenty of frivolous rants.
