Mid-Year Resolutions

I actually didn’t make any concrete resolutions for 2019. Not as the bells rang it in anyway. Later I would vow to stop shopping and the less said about that the better*. But we’re six months into the year (SIX MONTHS WHAT THE FUCK) and I thought I’d revisit the concept of resolutions and change, and maybe set down some small goals for the … Read More Mid-Year Resolutions

The Abyss

Kath recently talked about how blogging sometimes feels like screaming into the void and it’s got me to thinking about my own motivations. I agree to a certain extent that sometimes it feels like you’re pouring out your innermost thoughts only to yourself, and maybe one or two other people. I know my mum is my number one fan who often references the things … Read More The Abyss

Other People’s Blogs

I’m a very bad blogger. I mean, I post regularly on my own blog which is fine but I’m bad at commenting and keeping up with other people’s blogs and I wish to change that. We’re a community after all and spreading the love is the right thing to do. Here are a few blogs I read as much as I can – some … Read More Other People’s Blogs

Strange Weather

You may have noticed some changes around here lately, the name mostly. I’m having a flash of inspiration again and since it seems to have been stunted for a while, I’m going to go with it. I only did my last housekeeping back in January but I’ve decided that The Middle Row only covers a part of who I am. Welcome to Strange Weather. … Read More Strange Weather

PRO-crastination

‘Amazing April’ hasn’t exactly started with a bang. I just haven’t had the adequate oompf to even get it started. I’ve been feeling pretty run down this week and I’ve been going to bed at a ridiculously early hour most nights to try and combat that. Woe is me, huh? This is me being all period-y and needy – nobody needs to hear it. … Read More PRO-crastination

Amazing April

I’m in a bit of a slump at the moment with the blog. I mean, I have been blogging regularly but it’s been mainly film reviews (which obviously I LOVE) but this isn’t exclusively a film blog and I want more of *me* to shine through. I’m just having a problem with content, like what do I want to talk about? I’m sure if … Read More Amazing April

5 Years of A Voluptuous Mind + 2019 Foreword

According to my WordPress stats, today is my five year anniversary. Looking back I see that five years ago almost to the day A Voluptuous Mind was born. A LOT has changed since I wrote that foreword, including the name of my blog and a lot of my likes and dislikes. I can’t remember being so into Matthew McConaughey to be honest, and of … Read More 5 Years of A Voluptuous Mind + 2019 Foreword

New Blog, New Me

Happy New Year! 2019 looks set to be quite the year but I’m choosing to stay optimistic. I thought I’d begin the year with a semi-fresh start and a new blog name and goal. Which is equal parts exciting and downright pant-wetting. I’m hanging up A Voluptuous Mind after several years for something more me. So welcome to The Middle Row, named after my … Read More New Blog, New Me

A to Z of Advice

I’m not too proud to admit I turned to the internet for inspiration this week. It’s not that I don’t have my own ideas or experiences to chat about but sometimes it’s good to branch out a little and take your lead from someone else. Hence this little bad boy, which was actually fun to fill in. I found it via a blog called … Read More A to Z of Advice

Plan B

Blogging has been sparse since the wonderful #blogtober wrapped up and I don’t really like that, so I’m setting myself some writing goals for the next couple of months. November is half done of course so I’ve been slack as usual but it’s never too late to pull it together. I’ve got plans for #blogmas too, my own take on bloggers fave #vlogmas.

Blogtober 2018 – Round Up

Not my finest Blogtober but it wasn’t a complete disaster by any stretch. I managed 28/31 posts and that’s okay with me. I had two Halloween parties and lots of other October engagements, what’s a gal to do? I do really love writing a post every day though, it really inspires me to think outside the box when it comes to content and the … Read More Blogtober 2018 – Round Up

Drafts

I’ve got some annual leave this week. While I’ve made a few plans – dinner with a friend, cinema, tattoo on Thursday – let’s not pretend I’m not spending the majority of it on the sofa with The Handmaid’s Tale and various films, while my tea kettle works over time. My intention is to also blog as much as I can because it’s one … Read More Drafts
