    Bye (For Now!)

    My move to self-hosted is going to start soon so I don’t know when I’ll post next but I will post as soon as possible. I may take a few days off to just chill and take a break from blogging since it’s my mid-term break next week anyway. And I feel like I need a mental health break after everything that has happened with WP over the last few days. I also want to take some time to customize my blog after the move and just get everything perfect before I start posting again. I also have some SEO stuff I need to work on. BUT I have so…

    What Self-Hosting Means For You

    Self-Hosting And How This Will Effect You I just wanted to confirm that I will be self-hosting from here onwards. I contacted WP on multiple occasions asking them to unblock me but they completely ignored me and encouraged me to leave so that’s exactly what I will be doing. To be honest I no longer want to be on a platform that does not really care about its users. Here’s a great article on the basics of self-hosting: https://ellesunpopularopinions.com/the-basics-of-understanding-self-hosting/ I have received multiple emails and messages about the situation and what it will mean for my audience/followers. That’s why I wanted to post this as soon as possible to explain…

    Edit: I’ve decided to start posting regularly again and I wanted to post about something totally random because I am kind of sick of thinking about WP lol. Thank you for your support and understanding and I hope you enjoy this post! Most of us live pretty busy lives. Most of us work jobs that we have to commute to, or we are working from home and having to adapt to the new working circumstances or if you’re a student like me you are doing online classes or in-school classes. Many of us have children to take care of or pets who we have to walk and groom. That’s before…

    I'm Done With WordPress

    If you read yesterdays post you probably know that I was having trouble with my WordPress site. I was not surprised because that happens quite often because WordPress does have quite a few bugs it needs to work on. The problem was that I was not able to like or follow other blogs/posts. I contacted the Happiness Engineers and although they were very nice they were not able to fix the problem and I was told the team was working on it. I was busy yesterday so I just hoped for the best and moved on. Today I did a bit more research and from other peoples experience it says…

    Cancel Culture- My Thoughts

    What Is Cancel Culture? Cancel culture refers to the popular practice of withdrawing support for (canceling) public figures and companies after they have done or said something considered objectionable or offensive. Cancel culture is generally discussed as being performed on social media in the form of group shaming. – Source: https://www.dictionary.com/e/pop-culture/cancel-culture/ My Thoughts Before I give my opinion on cancel culture I just wanted to have a little introduction. The reason I decided to discuss this topic today was because cancel culture is something you can’t get away from right now especially if you use social media. I had been meaning to write this post for a while now but to be…

    How To Feel At Peace With The Way You Look

    Perfections And Imperfections (Unsplash CC0) Self-esteem and body image sometimes go together. When we’re not happy with the way we look, we can lose confidence, and hide away from others. On the flip side, when we do feel happy about our appearance, we can act confidently and feel better within ourselves. This is something you might identify with. Of course, your appearance shouldn’t define the way you feel about yourself. None of us are perfect, so you shouldn’t let any so-called imperfections get you down. I know it can be a struggle to accept your imperfections and to love your body the way it is- it has definitely been a…
