Invisible old blog posts

Today’s word in Ragtag Daily Prompt is, Invisible. I have written about this before, so here are the old posts from my archive. Nothing much has changed since then when it comes to my thoughts.

Thinking of my life so far, it has really been very inefficient. I don’t really have anything special to tell the future generations. My biggest achievement is probably staying alive this far. Or I haven’t killed anyone yet. That counts for something, doesn’t it?

There is a song by Queen called ‘The invisible man‘ That’s what I feel but as a woman. I’m an invisible individual that no one seems to care about in real life. Except for my dad. I’m totally fine with that because I don’t want that much attention.

This is a sketch from the British comedy show, The Fast Show. I don’t know why the word camouflage reminded me of this. Sometimes it feels like I’m invisible. But in some things, it’s kind of good. I don’t want that much attention from other people.

Slumber blogging

It’s been a bit slumber on my part when it comes to blogging. Well, 7 days isn’t much of a break. It feels that I’ve already said everything I wanted here. Some days just are lazier than others. You can’t write a blog post properly if you slumber because then you get nothing done. Well, you can, but it won’t make any sense. I don’t slumber at the moment, but still, this post might look like it. You be the judge. This makes sense, or it doesn’t.

I can’t force inspiration to just pop up in my head. That goes with almost everything creative. I can slumber if I’m bored or when things don’t interest me. Or if I haven’t slept enough. Blogging is like driving a car. You shouldn’t do it if you’re tired or even slumber. You should have energy and have the feeling to do it. If you don’t, you should do something else instead. I have a few writing projects going on at the same time. It’s because I want a change from time to time.

When you see tips about writing a blog post, they say it shouldn’t be too short. It depends on what kind of blog you have. I don’t like reading long posts. They make me slumber. If the posts are interesting, then I might not. I don’t even like to read long articles. I just look through them. I might start to read them, but then I read something else if it’s not interesting enough. I especially dislike reading articles where you have to search for what is said in the title. Blog posts and articles of news are different things. I might read the whole blog post, but not when it comes to an article.

My blogging has been a little slumber this year. I have written 11 posts this year. A year before, I had written 18 posts. That’s how it goes. I hope no one of you feels slumber when you read this blog. I can understand if you do because that’s what I feel sometimes. A night of good night sleep is good medicine for that—so sweet dreams.

My year in blogging (part 1)

Year 2014 is soon coming to an end. It’s time to recap. I went through every post and boy were there many. I had a few post in 2013 but it was only this year I started to write more. I had a few spelling errors but they were minor so nobody noticed. Here is my countdown in short.

It started on January 1. I wanted a fresh start after my mother died. Blogging was one of them. Zero to Hero challenge was a good start. That helped a lot and taught me about blogging. It got my blog “out there” I also got a OMG moment. I never knew my family would share a birthday with so many actors. Especially with Lee Pace. So proud of that 😀
I took part in Weekly Writing challenge (still do) I wrote “In the mind of a dolphin killer” Inspired by the dolphin and small whale slaughtering in Taiji which still goes on.

It was the Winter Olympics month. Finland won bronze in ice hockey. The ladies got silver in cross-country skiing and men won gold. After the Zero and Hero challenge was over, it felt like blogging wouldn’t be so much fun. But I still kept going. I wrote about Sherlock and the actors who’s played him. Then Finland went crazy because Benedict Cumberbatch was seen in the country.

I wrote about introversion. Wrote my first fanfiction based on movie/book character. The Oscars were a farce. Some movie called Gravity won most of it and American Hustle won none. Good thing was that I got more followers. I also wrote what I found humorous.
18 posts

Blogging 201 and IBQ Writing Prompt but the latter wasn’t very long. I did write the 100th post on my blog. But still I didn’t get that many comments. I bought The Hobbit book to read it the 2nd time. Nothing beats a DVD of The Desolation of Smaugh though.

It was my first Mother’s Day without mother. The series 24: Live another day finally arrived on Finnish TV so that was a great comfort. Finland also won silver in Men’s Ice hockey world championship. I also got accepted to the photography school I applied to.
