Don’t forget to have fun with blogging

Why do people blog? To share their interests, to interact with a community, to express themselves in a way they may be unable to in real life. Whatever reason people blog, they all have one main aim in common; for people to see their content. So it can be frustrating when you’re pouring your heart and soul, all the love for your passion into a blog post and getting no engagement. No likes, no comments. Nothing.  Read more

The Monthly Notes- July + August 2020

The Monthly Notes are back in sync! Finally! 

 I often go back to What Olivia Did, the blog that inspired the Monthly Notes for inspiration. She put two months’ playlists in one post so I decided to do the same. So, I’m pleased to say that September’s playlist will be on time. Read more

Copyright Basics

A late night edition of the Musing Notes (I know it’s not that late).

First of all apologies for the late post. We were supposed to go out but we postponed it for tomorrow and I wasn’t really into writing today’s post. But I believe this post is important so here it is!

My relationship with poetry over the years

Poetry
noun

  1. literary work in which the expression of feelings and ideas is given intensity by the use of distinctive style and rhythm; poems collectively or as a genre of literature.
  2. a quality of beauty and intensity of emotion regarded as characteristic of poems.
  3. something regarded as comparable to poetry in its beauty.

All these definitions of poetry are perfect. Poetry is beautiful and it took me a couple of years to realise that. Yes, this is a hate to love story. I began to establish my opinion on poetry in Year 11, when I was doing poetry in English Literature but I decided to go further back and look at all the times I’ve looked at poetry in my life.

Renewed focus on social media

Two weeks ago, I wrote about changing up my blog. I talked about re-evaluating the purpose of my blog and the approach. I reflected on my thoughts from when I had first started my blog and compared it to now. I mentioned specific things I’d be focusing on. One of those things was social media. Read More

The Monthly Notes- June 2020

(I really need to synch these playlists up…)

Hello readers, happy August! Though this isn’t the summer we wanted/expected, I hope you’ll find some way to enjoy yourselves. If during the peak of lockdown, you didn’t find a new hobby, you can use this time to do so. But if you don’t that’s fine. This year has been stressful for everyone so anytime you have to unwind, don’t waste it. You deserve it! Read more

To Falling in Love with Writing (Again)

For the past couple of weeks, I’ve been thinking about my writing habits. To put it simply, they’re not good. Apart from my blog, it’s been years since I used to sit down and spend hours writing, bringing the many ideas that lived in my mind to life. I intended my blog to be a portfolio for journalistic writing, but I can see after over a year that it hasn’t gone in that direction. However, I wouldn’t change that for the world, I really like the categories that The Musing Notes have but after a year, I think it’s time to renew the focus on creating a portfolio for articles. There’s also my future to think about. I want to be a journalist, but how can I say that when I barely sit and write articles. Again, this is what I wanted The Musing Notes for but it turned into a different direction.  Read more

Is Vlogging For You?

‘College’ is officially over for the summer. I’m so relieved! Though this will be far from a relaxing summer, I’m pretty much free. I’ve been looking forward to the end of school for ages. I have so many ideas for the blog and I can’t wait to bring them to life. Read more

The Monthly Notes- May 2020

So…

Here I am again. Another music playlist post late. 

In my defence, May’s playlist was quite hard to put together. I thought March was difficult, but May was.. Well the fact that you’re reading this in July should tell you enough. I resorted to filling it with four songs from last year that I’d never had in a favorites playlist. It’s not ideal, but there’s nothing wrong with rediscovery. In fact it can be pretty wonderful.
