I’m doing well, it’s the second day of Blog Every Day in May and I’m still on track! Today’s prompt encourages me to share my five favourite posts from my own blog. When I first read it, two posts sprang immediately to mind, and then I had to think quite hard about the other three. With a bit of reading back, I’ve identified five in total, but I can’t guarantee that they are necessarily my actual five favourites, they are just the ones that I could think of in the time I had to spare!
Childhood Summer Vacations
In August 2012, I took part in 20SB’s guest post swap, for which the subject was Childhood Summer Vacations. I followed all the rules, sending my post to my partner and hosting her post, and then a couple of days later, she decided to delete my guest post! As I was quite pleased with the post, I decided to repost it here, and I’m glad I did, because I love all the photos! I have such fond memories of all my family holidays as a child, and it was nice to go through photos and realise that we did almost the same thing every single year, but that I wouldn’t have changed it for all the world.
Hello old friend, and here we are, you and me, on the last page
In October 2012, I was lucky enough to go along with my friend Richard to Cardiff and see an advance screening of The Angels Take Manhattan, the final episode of Doctor Who to feature Amy and Rory as companions. We got to spend the day in Cardiff, looking around different Doctor Who landmarks, and then we got to see the episode in the company of Steven Moffat and a few other luminaries. I also got to spend the whole day with Richard, which is something that sadly doesn’t happen too often. I really like writing the post about it, and showing off all my photos of us larking around outside the Torchwood building.
30 Before 30 ~ Go for a bra fitting
Another post from October 2012; one of my 30 Before 30 goals (that feels so long ago now) was to have a bra fitting. I’d never in my life had one, always just wearing the size that my mum had guessed at when I first started needing to wear a bra. I was miles out with regards to what I was wearing and what I should have been wearing, but, as I explain in the post, I actually think the woman who measured me got it wrong. Since then, I haven’t been measured again, but I have plans to, because I’m still not wearing the size that she told me I was, and I’m curious to see if it would be different now, eighteen months on.
This isn’t a post that I necessarily feel particularly proud of, because all I did was collate a number of photos all around the subject of the US presidency. But I love the US presidency, and I really love looking at all the photos!
This post is from earlier this year, when I took a photo of myself au naturel for a FMS Photo a Day prompt, and then decided to write a blog post around it. I may call this a lifestyle blog, but I don’t do an awful lot of ‘sharing’ on here. Nothing too private or personal really makes it through, so this was a bit of a detour for me. It got a pretty great response though, so I was pleased that I had shared.
So there you have five of my favourite posts. I am sure there are others that I have loved writing (I’ve already thought of two!), but these are the ones that I wanted to share today.
