I am suffering from blogging frustration. It seems that my blogging style has gone to pot and I cannot reel it in. My posts always get too long and out of hand, and no one can shut me up and I ramble on and on...
And my writing sense of humour has turned out to be incredibly lame and corny. My reading sense of humour is not like that. The things that make me laugh out loud are witty, ironic, sarcastic, quirky, goofy, rude, and other things as well. But when I write it all comes out as corny word games. I cannot move past my fascination with word games. I need humour therapy, people.
I have been blogging roughly a year now. I think (I bloody well hope) my writing style has improved since then, but it has a long way to go to satisfy me.
I read so many funny and beautifully written blogs. I feel they are what I aspire to in a writing style. I can't believe all the writing talent out there.
DT from Dancefloor tragedy held her own blog non-awards, where she mentioned blog posts that really stuck with her, for various reasons. I think this is a cool idea. I have read so many blog posts that have inspired me or impressed me or stuck with me.
Here, in no particular order, are a few. Don't be offended if I don't mention your blog. This is just the tip of a huge iceberg for me.
brings tears to my eyes:
hilarious, made me laugh out loud:
just personally memorable:
chester pillow - no title (you have to read the comments to truly appreciate this one)
Being Brazen - a decade of me (I know DT listed this one too, but I just loved the way it was written, like a dreamy adventure).
I reckon I will do this again, because there are so many posts that I really enjoyed that I am having a hard time finding them again. Are there any posts that stick in your mind for whatever reason?
And at that I will leave you with this thought: Bugrit. Millenium hand and shrimp.
