Love Links #23

Just a quickie this week, folks, cos I be super busy. I have paid work to power through and I really need to get it done not just because it’s due but also because I’m obsessed with The Umbrella Academy on Netflix and I must continue watching. I honestly can’t remember the last time a show made me properly LOL all the way through and my life now depends on all that giggling. Here are a few hot picks that I’ve read this week, I hope you enjoy them 😎 Continue reading “Love Links #23”

Love Links #22

Something that never fails to shock the shit out of me is seeing the date I published my last blog-link love-in. It never feels like it, but months and months pass and I’m left wondering (hoping?) I’ve been abducted by aliens cos where the fuck do all those days go?

See, while I do my very best to read my fellow bloggers works of wonder as often as I can, I nearly always do it from my mobile phone. When I find something I love I take screenshots, telling myself that they’ll help me remember which posts I wanted to share. And I promise myself that, when I’m putting my post together on the computer, I’ll try to comment or at least abuse the like button to let folks know that I’ve stopped by. Then I purge my phone’s gallery and lose all the sodding screenshots.

Times are a’changin’ though, cos I got a miraculous thing this week and it’s super sad how much it’s transformed the way I do things. Folks, I’m 39 in a few months and I just got my first table-top planner. A pretty paper and pen job that’s turned me from a tit who’s constantly chasing her own tail to someone who, you know, plans stuff. And it works even better than my bujo! Well, not when it comes to tracking my water intake and my poops, but I digress.

But yeah, instead of screenshots that get lost, I use the planner. A quick note of the bloggers’ names reminds me I wanna share their shit. And I can’t lose this list like I do Post-Its cos it’s massive. Thus, the first fruit of this new organisational marvel is the comeback of Love Links! Enjoy, folks 🖤 Continue reading “Love Links #22”

Love Links #21

In the past two weeks I’ve been ruined, folks. Ruined in the best of ways. How? It was my turn to do roundups for Wicked Wednesday last week and Masturbation Monday this week, and meme queens, Marie Rebelle and Kayla Lords, both gave me super spooky, Halloween themed prompts! My fellow bloggers brought the tricks and the treats with some fabulous pieces, making choosing my top picks so very hard. You’ll find links to my fave threes below, along with some other awesome posts. Not all of them are Halloween themed, but I promise you that they all deserve your clicks. Check them out and don’t forget to leave some comment love, give ’em a share, or mash the old like button so all these lovely blogger folks know you stopped by. Continue reading “Love Links #21”

Love Links #20

Ah, we’re halfway through October and I’m the happiest I’ve been since… well, since last October. My house is full of flashing pumpkins, witchy candles, and the smell of wintery spices, as well as home baking that I shouldn’t but have been indiscriminately shovelling down my neck. My bedside table is piled high with ghost story books, my DVD player has been a conveyor belt of Halloween movies.

But not really scary ones, though. Cos, fun fact, I can’t watch horror movies cos I’m a big ole coward.

Seriously, she who was recently called the goddess of gothic erotica by one of her fave writers (my ego came hard when I read that tweet, lemme tell ya) can’t watch anything too creepy/stabby/psychologically head-fucky without chucking up then sleeping with the lights on for half a year. I like my words to be as black as ink and straight from hell, but I prefer my Halloween movies to come with a double dose of Disney.

I’m on my tod tonight so I’m gonna snuggle with my kitties and watch something old (Death Becomes Her). Then I’m gonna snuggle the Fella’s pillow and read something new (Prince Lestat). Before I do any of that, though, I’m gonna provide y’all with some links to some awesome blogs. I hope that you enjoy them as much as I did.  Continue reading “Love Links #20”

Love Links #19

If y’all could see me now, you’d see a pink-cheeked gal with her shoulders hunched, shaking her head at her own soft cockedness. Why am I a soft cock? Well, after reading a post by the lovely Floss of Floss Does Life, I’ve realised that I’ve allowed my concerns about not being constructive enough in my comments on other bloggers’ work to prevent me from being a giving member of the sex blogging community. I’ve been too airheaded to remember to share awesome stuff on social media, I’ve been stingy with the like button and too socially awkward to join in with conversations. Basically, I’ve been shite and I’m ashamed of that.

I know how important it is for me to have my work acknowledged by others and to have them want to talk to me, and so many folks do give me that…but I don’t give back. They get my attention, sure, and my clicks, but they don’t ever know I’ve been to their sites to marvel over their words or salivate over their images cos I never frigging say anything. I’ll often type up a comment (sometimes lengthy, sometimes not) and then delete it after the thought ‘who do you think you are‘ pops into my head. Imposter syndrome is alive n’ thrivin’ in Scandarella House.

So, I’m striving to teach myself that acknowledgement and support doesn’t need to come in the form of an in-depth analysis of someone’s blog post. I do love receiving insightful comments, sure, but I also love the single word comments, too. I should never have convinced myself that others wouldn’t feel the same.

Anyway, here’s a bunch of stuff that’s captured and held my attention while I’ve been scouring blogs today. Check them out and if you enjoy them as much as I did – and if you can – consider giving that like/share button some love. Continue reading “Love Links #19”

Love Links #18

So much time has elapsed since I started compiling Love Links #18 you’ll find that some of these posts are a couple of months old. I wish I could say I’d spent a lot of that time being a busy wee bee, but I’d be lying. Some of it was spent on the sofa feeling sorry for myself, and only the latter few weeks have seen me emerge from the hole I was in. If you wanna, you can read my whinge about that here. But if you’d rather read some awesome, non-whingy stuff, check out the links below. Each and every one will lead you to marvellous places, I promise you. Continue reading “Love Links #18”
