It’s that time of month (the end) where I look back at the past month, try my best to find some highlights and moan a lot. I also try and give a bit of space to the things my minions have been saying this month!
I’ve been fairly active in getting people visiting my blog over the past month and so I’ve received a lot more comments than usual. Here’s some of the best, with my responses.
Sogata Khan (on the Friday Review): Hi, wouldn't it be better to write each review as a separate post. the way i see it, you have already done the hard work. why make it look like 1 when it can be 5-6. anyways nice blog.
I could do that but the Friday Review works wonderfully and seems to be pretty popular. I’m not a lazy blogger and think that I’d rather write one long review post every few weeks rather than short reviews more regularly. The Friday Review is the one bit of this blog I know actually works!
I received an interesting mix of comments on my silly Money Saving Tips:
Jay: I literally laughed out loud at this and my boyfriend thought something was wrong with me, so thanks.
Vimal Dwivedi: That were the funniest recommendations I have ever read..... I am surely not gonna try any of these...
Daniel Kidd: I think you were almost trying to be funny. Good effort but barely got a laugh out of me- probably a difference in British/American humour.
I think that last one might be my first “hate” comments. Of course I was trying to be funny, it would be pretty awful if I accidentally was funny. It’s clear who appears to be in the minority here though. If I didn’t find it funny I think I would have had the decency to have not said anything though. Some people just can’t help but be critical. *awaits response and hopes for big fight on internet*
A few general good ones now, because these all made me smile.
Vimal Dwivedi: The post is awesome and it bound me till the end. Keep Blogging...
I.B.G.: Hi! Thanx for joining the group in bloggers. You are so gorgeous. Love your blog so much
MedReigns: Hey, good stuff man...keep at it
Jay: There you go making me enjoy learning again
Thanks for those lovely nice ones and for all the comments I have received, including many more that I couldn’t fit in here. It’s really good to hear what people think so please continue to comment and tell me! One more comment for this section which makes no sense whatsoever:
Anon: I'm in the weird part of YouTube again...
So many questions! Who are you? What the hell are you talking about, the post didn’t have anything at all to do with Youtube. And how can you be in Youtube? Sucked into cyberspace? The mind boggles!
Minion of the Month: This month the award goes to the lovely Ellen because as well as commenting a few times here I’ve noticed her presence on various part of my blog’s world, like the Google+ page. Thanks Ellen and may I add how lovely it is to have you back in the blogging world!
The One Post You Should Go Back and Read: My posts seem to have varied a lot this month, looking back my blog has gone a bit crazy! The one post I’m sending you back to is Money Saving Tips, which is unfortunately the dullest sounding title ever. It’s actually a fun post in which I sort of parody online articles about saving money by suggesting outrageous things to do. If you haven't read it go and do so and decided whether you are on the love team or the hate team!
Blog of the Month: Sometimes this award is challenging to decide on but without a doubt January 2012’s blog of the month is A Bit of a Geek by Miranda. It’s a fantastic geeky blog which is well written, looks great and is just generally brilliant. I would think there’s something for everyone there too in terms of what she posts about. Go and check it out, it’s really worth a read.
And now to finish with the ominous personal review of the month. In a word, rubbish. Complete and utter garbage. The worst month in a fair while and the worst start to 2012 I could have possibly hoped for. Everything’s gone wrong and I feel so low it’s unreal. More details on that tomorrow. I have little hope that any month this year will be much better to be honest, although my month in placement (March) has a little potential. We shall see. If there’s a God or such thing as destiny, I think that I must deserve some goodness. I always try to do the right thing and be the best person that I can but I get nothing for it. It just doesn’t seem fair…
