blogging world toxic toxicity bloggers stereotypes

My gosh has it been long since i’ve gotten around to writing a Chai with Sai piece. I’ve been inundated with uni assignments but I’m squeezing in time to get back to writing blog posts. So, here I am with a topic that I’ve been thinking about for a little while now. Is the blogging world as toxic as people make it out to be?

Most days I log into twitter and there will be someone talking about the latest in blogging drama or how they don’t feel that the blogging world is as supportive as it used to be. Everyone’s entitled to their opinions and I respect them. But sometimes I wonder if the blogging world is really as toxic as people on the outside feel like it is.

All influencers are painted with the same brush. We’re wannabe-celebrities, money grabbers who have never done a day’s work in their lives. And, of course, we do it for the free stuff. On top of all that, we’re apparently a vicious bunch who are harmful to society. Who blog for our own personal gain and are the least supportive people that you’ll meet. They paint a really nice picture of us, don’t they? View Full Post

social media

Social media. It’s something that the vast majority of people of my generation use. I’ll admit that I’ve got accounts on a lot of social media sites. Between wanting to have a platform to be able to promote my blog and YouTube to being able to keep in touch with people, social media has proved to be the best way to do all of those things. However, it hasn’t always had the best reputation and I can understand why. Data protection, cyber-bullying… there’s a lot of things that can go wrong by being on social media. But I feel like there’s one things that the older generation love to say about social media: it stops young people from being able to talk to anyone face-to-face because the majority of the time, they’re just talking to someone through a screen. Is social media really killing the art of conversation?  View Full Post

degree university I am not a full time blogger and I’m pretty sure that it’s something I’ve mentioned to you guys before. I thought it would be pretty nice to let you guys know what I’m working towards when I’m not running my blog.

Some of you might know that I’m a full time student in my local university. I decided not to move away for uni and I’m pretty glad that I made that decision to be honest. I’m currently in my first year and studying Medical Engineering. Let’s be honest, my discipline of engineering really isn’t the most popular one. And that’s why I wanted to talk to you guys about it.
