Blogger vs wordpress

Why I moved from blogger to wordpress


It’s hard to know what your blog will become on day one. When I created my very first blog I was merely 16  and had not a clue what I was doing. I didn’t know the difference between blogspot and wordpress. SEO sounded like a UFO and HTML was literally a foreign language to me.  I didn’t expect to keep…

Mix Tapes


Even though CDs are going out of fashion and it’s becoming increasingly hard to find a suitable player for them, I still love to make my own mix tapes. The first one I ever made was back in 2007, just over 10 years ago! It featured some terrible club songs and everything was a remix. To be honest, I didn’t…

Blogging Struggles


Everyone wants their blog to be a success. Perhaps you’re not interested in the amount of followers you have or the page views on your latest post but I’m almost certain that you don’t blog with the intention of nobody reading it. If that were the case then you should have bought a diary and not a domain. But success…

V-Day Feminism


Happy V-Day to all the men, women and and other genders out there. The ‘V’ in this case stands for Victory, Valentine and Vagina. Upon stumbling across Emma Watson’s instagram page at the start of the new year, I found myself joining her online book club. The book of the month happened to be The Vagina Monologues by Eve Ensler.…

Another Year Gone


 As Professor Dumbledore does say. It’s funny how as I get older the years seem to get shorter. Today a year is merely 1/20th of my life. Whereas when I was 4, a year was a whole quarter of my life! It’s all about perspective. Compared to this time a year ago, when I was planning for my year ahead,…

Repeal The Eighth


So, What is The Eighth? The 8th refers to the Eighth Amendment of the Constitution which guarantees the equal right to life of the unborn and the mother. This law that was brought in in 1983 means that abortion is illegal in Ireland except if there is a substantial risk to the life of the mother. This forces women to…

Kitty Hawk [Books Two and Three]


I must thank the publisher and author Iain Reading for sending me these books. Of course this has no way affected my opinion or review but free books are absolutely awesome! I am super excited to continue this series. Especially since the next one is apparently in Ireland and also features the Titanic! One of my many favourite things. The…

Blog Post comes with Free Cake


*** OYSTERS, CLAMS AND COCKLES *** Or if none of those tickles your taste buds I also bring Cake! I realise that it has been quite a while since I’ve posted on my blog. 2 months, 3 days, 3 hours, 48 minutes and 12 seconds. And that’s 2 months, 2 days, 5 hours too long. I hope the cake makes…

Stacking The Shelves


Over the years, I’ve managed to acquire quite a large “to be read” list.  Right now it is probably nearing 8 stories tall. It’s my tower of magnificent, beautiful, wonderful books. You see I’m planning to build a castle. Yes a castle of books. And then live in it. And I want a dragon too. Outside she will guard my…
