I seem to be an expert at it, as more than a few times lately people say to me all I seem to do is eat cake and drink tea, frequenting local tea rooms. People see me out and about and assume I’m not doing anything productive. (When you and I know that any blogger is always looking for the next post subject)
So is the joy of social media. Where we choose the snapshot of our lives we want to share.
You might think I’m being deceptive, that I make out to be something I’m most definitely not, but the truth is the things I post are real, I do in fact frequent a lot of tea rooms and consume more than my fair amount of tea and cake. (If you are friends with me on my personal FB page, you will have noticed this.) It just so happens that as I do have several (part time) jobs, I am able to fit it all in. And I get to choose my time off. I don’t have a regular working life, my shifts are irregular, some weeks I work a lot, then I may have a few days off, or some weeks I just work evenings which leaves all day to ‘do nothing’.
I actually had my first negative comment on my blog last week, the commenter pretty much blamed me for the fact that she couldn’t get a part time job that fit around her and her child because ‘people like me’ have more than one. (Job not child)Because yeah, I’m sure if I gave up any or all of my part time jobs she would snap them up in a heart beat. (On a side note, after much thoughts of should I reply/delete I chose to ignore the negative comment even though if she were stood in front of me I would have given her all my thoughts on the subject.)
The bottom line is, that I visit blogs that are visually appealing, make me smile, inspire me and make me happy, and so this is what I like to post, happy thoughts, pretty pictures, and maybe occasionally the odd rant. I hope this make visitors smile.
