Why hello dear readers. In this divine weather we’ve been having it it often difficult to focus ones mind on the important things in life. No- I’m not talking about studying for those vital exams in a few short weeks.. (gulp) ‘Tis blogging! I’m ashamed to say I’ve neglected my baby for a wee bitty bit too long. One of life’s unanswerable questions is the reason as to why we procrastinate so much, and why we put things off, when our span on this planet is so tragically short.
My question today is, if you find the time in your oh-so-busy schedule to read this rather pointless post, who would you like to see featured on this blog? Do you, or someone you know deserve more recognition on the webosphere?
I have some rather exciting blogging projects coming up, as well as an interview with one of my favourite people in the world. But in the meantime, my aim is to liven up this quiet feed and get you more involved in my antics (oo er).
Happy Easter !
