Life on the Darkside – Personal Post

So just when I decide to go back to more posts and better communication on this blog, I lose my internet connection for almost two days! 😅☹️ Let’s just say it was difficult for me to be without an internet connection because since we’re in level 3 lockdown still (and no way of coming out of it), nobody can go anywhere or do anything. So that meant I couldn’t work either, which some might think was a bonus lol but it definitely wasn’t.

Time went by super slowly, and it was frustrating. But at the same time, I didn’t like feeling like I had become addicted to the internet and that I couldn’t help feeling useless without it.

Anyway, I am BACK, thank goodness! And rearing to go (and write!) and talk about Star Wars. I also had an exciting thing happen before I lost my internet connection on Instagram – and it’s me “chasing” those stats again 😅

Also, I have job-related news, and it’s terrible ☹️😩🥺 but I think I am going to hold off on revealing what it is until I know for sure what it is. What I can say is we’re going through another restructure, and this time four of us will be losing our jobs/reinstated elsewhere. Yeah. More on that when I know more.

For now, I hope you are ALL keeping safe out there and staying productive! I miss you guys 😅

Eight Years of Blogging on WordPress!

Yup that is what WordPress are telling me today – I have been blogging on this blog for eight years today! When I check my stats it’s a totally different story however and I didn’t write my first blog post on this blog until 2016. So I figured I must have signed up in 2013 and just didn’t use my blog until 2016 😂

I also didn’t really consider myself a blogger until around 2017 when I started to blog a lot more regularly. In 2016 I blogged exactly once😂 so that’s why I wouldn’t consider 2016 the year I “started” blogging. For me that was definitely 2017 because I started to feel like I wanted to blog and create something to hopefully share with other Star Wars fans.

My humble little blog has grown over the years into something I truly feel proud of. I’ve met some wonderful people on my journey and that in itself was worth it.

Think about your blogging journey. When did you start blogging and why did you start blogging? Hit me up in the comments as always dear friends! If I don’t see you there, I’ll catch you in the next one!

Wonderful Blog Milestone – 804 Readers and STILL Growing!

Well, hello everyone, long time no post! As some of my readers and friends will be aware, life decided to throw me several curveballs at once 😩🤯. So I’ve had less energy to post (anywhere, not just on this blog) while I focus on sorting out some of my “issues” offline. In terms of progress reports, we are still waiting on the status of our car. It’s taking a really long time to get assessed, and my patience with this is wearing incredibly thin. Thankfully, my partner has the patience of a saint and manages to calm me down when I’m closer to imploding, lol. 🤣😅

To help me feel less stressed, I have been updating my other blog’s theme, which takes up a lot of time but gets my mind off stressful things. And I’ve been thinking about my immediate future should I find myself without a job. This is a HUGE thing for me because I have been through ups and downs at work before, but even then, I still had a job. This time around, it might not be that way, and my relatively stable lifestyle could end. I have no plans other than what I’ve been focusing on for a while now, which is getting my freelancing gig together. But it’s harder to achieve when you already have a job because it makes it less of a “thing” you have to do right away. Now it has become an actual thing I have to do right NOW, and well, I’m a bit overwhelmed.

HOWEVER, all that stuff aside, my little star wars blog is STILL saving me from an otherwise awful few weeks and finally made the big 800 mark! I know this isn’t a big number, but it’s not the number that matters. It’s THE WONDERFUL people my love for star wars has brought into my life. Some I am lucky enough to call “friends” over years of debating star wars and a galaxy far, far away.

SO HERE’S to all my amazing readers – without you, my dark and overwhelming days would be even more difficult. Thank you for all the new readers I’ve had lately, and once my life begins to become more manageable, I’ll be blogging back on the regular once more 😄 At least, that’s the plan!

Thanks again to EVERYONE and I’ll catch you in the comments!

Welcome to All My New Readers 😄😃

Hi everyone! I hope you are all looking forward to the weekend!

It has been a couple of months since I did a “welcome” message to all my new readers so I thought I should do that today!

So welcome to everyone that has followed me in the last few months! And thank you for doing so! I would like to give you a quick run-down on what you can expect to see on my blog. First and foremost, this is a Star Wars blog, and I will post regularly about Star Wars. I see some people following me after reading some of my “blogging and social media” posts, and while I welcome each and every reader to my blog, I do not blog about blogging or social media daily. This is just a heads-up for you in case you are looking for that type of blog specifically. Feel free to unfollow me if you like; I wish you all the best with your blog search if you do 😊

I also blog about art, specifically edits I make using Adobe software and tutorials, which I review and post about. If you like Star Wars, art and Adobe, you will see me blog about these things but again, not daily.

So that’s about it really, the rest is all up to you, my dear readers! I hope to talk with you soon, and I am very active in the comments section, so you can always approach me there. 😊

Thank you for choosing to “follow” me, and I hope you find some enjoyment from my humble little blog.

Please comment wherever you want. I am always happy to receive feedback and comments, which I enjoy reading. I will always try to reply.
