Lets face it. Teens are dramatic ♡

Lets face it. Us teens are dramatic. Less than an hour ago i was lying on my floor crying because i didn’t understand one of my mock gcse revision questions. But its not easy being a teenager. That’s why i made a blog. I need somewhere where i can be my dramatic teenage self.

This is my first ever post and we all know that in a few months or a few years I’m going to look back on this and cringe. But that’s part of growing up right ?? I made this basically to vent, its hard to find people who understand everything your going through and its even harder to find people who will listen without judging. But that’s what i hope to build here a little corner of the internet where i can just be me without anyone wanting me to change or be something I’m not. I wanted to make this first post about …. me i guess. That sound so big headed and self centred but i feel like that’s a common first blog. Anyway my names Eloise Williams but i can’t stand the name Eloise ( no offense if that’s your name it just doesn’t suit me) so i go as Ellie. I’m 14 and i live in wales. I’m a dancer and i love makeup. That’s really the only things i do in my spare time. The rest of the time you will find me curled up in bed watching Black Mirror or some other tv show. That’s most teenagers for you though. When me and my two best girl friends spend time together we are usually shopping, getting our nails or hair done, or watching a move in bed. That’s about all there is to me. I’m your bog standard teenage girl who is constantly tired, constantly crying and obsessed with makeup ( the last two don’t go together trust me. One thing that i have learnt lately is always carry mascara round with you. You never know when you’ll end up with mascara running down your face and you might need to re-apply it phaha.) Anyway last thing, I’m really bad at spelling and i mean really bad. The other day i was sitting in English for at least 20 minutes wondering how to spell there. THERE. who can’t spell there. So anyway i apologies in advance for any spelling mistakes even though i will go through this many times to try make sure there aren’t any. But i can still promise i will miss some. Also if anyones reading this who knows who to use the app well or would just like to give me some advice the comments are always open

Introduce Yourself (Example Post)

This is an example post, originally published as part of Blogging University. Enroll in one of our ten programs, and start your blog right.

You’re going to publish a post today. Don’t worry about how your blog looks. Don’t worry if you haven’t given it a name yet, or you’re feeling overwhelmed. Just click the “New Post” button, and tell us why you’re here.

Why do this?

  • Because it gives new readers context. What are you about? Why should they read your blog?
  • Because it will help you focus you own ideas about your blog and what you’d like to do with it.

The post can be short or long, a personal intro to your life or a bloggy mission statement, a manifesto for the future or a simple outline of your the types of things you hope to publish.

To help you get started, here are a few questions:

  • Why are you blogging publicly, rather than keeping a personal journal?
  • What topics do you think you’ll write about?
  • Who would you love to connect with via your blog?
  • If you blog successfully throughout the next year, what would you hope to have accomplished?

You’re not locked into any of this; one of the wonderful things about blogs is how they constantly evolve as we learn, grow, and interact with one another — but it’s good to know where and why you started, and articulating your goals may just give you a few other post ideas.

Can’t think how to get started? Just write the first thing that pops into your head. Anne Lamott, author of a book on writing we love, says that you need to give yourself permission to write a “crappy first draft”. Anne makes a great point — just start writing, and worry about editing it later.

When you’re ready to publish, give your post three to five tags that describe your blog’s focus — writing, photography, fiction, parenting, food, cars, movies, sports, whatever. These tags will help others who care about your topics find you in the Reader. Make sure one of the tags is “zerotohero,” so other new bloggers can find you, too.
