What Kind Of Blogger Are You? #ThrowbackThursday

I often read some posts in amazement.

The time a blogger has taken to write their post, the attention to detail, the sheer beauty of their creation, and I wonder whether I am doing things right.

Don’t get me wrong, I can also be relatively thorough, and craft a pretty post, with all-singing, all-dancing links, photos, and lots of information, but I am seriously in awe of those who manage these types of posts on a regular basis!

but I think I am most definitely a fly-by-the-seat-of-my-pants kinda gal. When something comes to mind, I need to write it then and there, and preferably post it straight away too!

Case in question, I was sat in my car, in the Asda carpark this morning, when the thought for this post came up. Forget my frozen food, slowly thawing in the boot, and the fact that I needed to get back to bake a carrot cake for Lil Man… words were bubbling in my brain! I needed to get them out, and typed up as fast as I could! Thank you so much Notes App on my phone!

The following verse is what flowed, to a background noise of shoppers and car washers, cars and kids!

Which One?
Are you a grafter
A blog post grafter?
Spending days, if not weeks
Making minute tweaks
A masterpiece creator
Looking up data
Editing until words swim around
Thankful you corrected the errors you found
Able to post a piece that is perfect
And sure it’ll have the desired effect
Or are you a blogger
Who seizes that fodder
And write as it hits
No idea will you miss
You write from the heart
All areas you chart
Some post, short and sweet
Some long, written in heat
Some that you treasure and some that you rue
All showing a true reflection of you

So, what kind of blogger are you?

#SoCS Oct. 21/17 – Season

Linda’s back with another great #SoCS prompt!

Your Friday prompt for Stream of Consciousness Saturday is “season.” Use the word “season,” add a suffix to it, or write about one. Bonus points if the first and last word of your post is a season or a seasoning. Extra bonus points if you have pictures. Enjoy!

I penned a poem for this!

Spring arrives
With a bright new beginning
Use basil or mint
Just stick a few leaves in

Spices, Spice Mix, Colorful, Curry

Summer blazes
What spices to put in?
Use ginger, cilantro
Or even cumin

Spices, White, Pepper, Nutmeg, Cloves

Autumn brings evenings
Bathed early in gold
Use fennel or turmeric
To combat that cold

Spices, Cinnamon Sticks, Odor, Aroma

Winter creeps up on us
Colder than ever
Cinnamon, cardamom, cloves
Great together

Spice, Chiles, Paprika, Chili, Powder

Seasons come
Bringing flavours new
To spruce up your salad
Or your stew

Dinner, Burger, Salt And Pepper, Meal

And no matter what
The season or weather
Don’t ever forget
Your salt and your pepper!

Seasons, Four Seasons, Tree, Nature

Dark Mornings

As Autumn bows her weary head
Over her shoulder does Winter peek
Dark mornings call for you to lay in bed
The day outside looks bleak

The children fight to open their eyes
Surely it’s the middle of the night?
Households filled with cries and whys
Sleep won’t give up the fight

But don’t fret, it wont be long
Until our clocks fall back
And your alarm won’t feel like a gong
Bodies won’t be out of whack

Written for all those currently struggling to rouse their kids as the dark mornings are so deceptive… and they cause chaos with morning routines!!!

Lovebirds (even though they’re Parrotlets!) #RomanticTuesday

A little entry for #RomanticTuesday.


Sometimes I may do you wrong
I’m not perfect, see
It makes you sad and angry
You turn your head from me


But given time you realise
I’m not all that bad
I’m just a man, not tactful
Your average kinda lad


Then we settle right back down
Doing the things we do
Because I know that you love me
And you know I love you too

#SoCS Aug. 5/17 – High/Low

fLinda’s #SoCS prompt this week…

Your Friday prompt for Stream of Consciousness Saturday is: “high/low.” Use one, use both, bonus points for starting and finishing with one or both. Have fun!

So, here’s my off-the-cuff poem for today! Y’all can’t keep me down!!!

High flying thoughts and wild ideas
Refusing to listen to anyone’s fears
No worries that I’ll crash and burn
From any mistake, I shall learn
Belief in me, that’s what’s inside
The crest of hope, that’s what I ride
And anywhere that I shall go
I’ll not let anyone make me feel low

Shit Stevie Says

Good Shit, bad shit, funny shit, sad shit. Maybe I'll inspire you! Or maybe I won't... Perhaps I'll talk about worldly matters, or maybe my not so subtle obsession with aliens, or (if you're really lucky) I just might one day give insight on how to make the worlds best sandwich. Guess you'll only find out if you read. So sit back, grab a glass of wine (because there is a 100% chance I indulged in one while writing), and enjoy. Welcome to the enigma that is my brain. My name is Stevie Jackson, and I have shit to say.
