Blog 23 – The Proper use of English – Why Bother?


slang-language-300x216I’ve noticed people using slang excessively on the Internet recently…

Don’t get me wrong, I like slang.

Slang is convenient.

It is totally acceptable on the Internet as well as in a normal conversation nowadays…But something about it has been bothering me…

Yes, that’s right. Surprise, surprise.

“A mini rant with a sprinkle of what the actual fuck” is the forecast for the next 30 seconds.

Yes, I made this meme. I had that much time on my hands – Syd

  1. I have decided to start a new series of blog posts (along with everything else) that basically consists of things that bother me, in a fun, bite-size format that you can spend a minute or two reading and hopefully have a little chuckle at…The series will be called “Why Bother?”
  2. Creative writing has always been something I have been generally interested in. Therefore I will be releasing two-part mini stories every so often, trying to perfect the art of creating effective cliffhangers, as a creative exercise. Hope you guys enjoy it…This series will be called “Blogisode
  3. I also have one or two other things currently up my sleeve (no, not tissues or anything like that) for this blog, so do hit that follow button if you want to read some creative mini-stories and some little ranty posts you can read at breakfast.

Peace,

Syd

Oh, and since I’m on the laptop, I’ll start things off by giving you a Why Bother? Blog as soon as I write it up!

Blog 22 – My Thoughts on Social Networking


This article has been chosen by readers (via the poll in this blog http://wp.me/p3jOHU-eU) to be written next. Well, sort of anyway ;-)

social-networks-masthead.20120606230818We live in a world where people poke one another, write on each other’s walls, like every single thing they do, follow one another, repeat(retweet) what people say and even add them to circles. All virtually of course…otherwise that’d be a bit…weird, to say the least.

Blog 21 – The Kidnapping (Chapter 4)


Note: Please vote in the Poll at the end of this post. YOU get to decide what I should write next! I also have a new “project” coming out on my blog very soon, which will be more creative writing but a tad different to The Kidnapping. Watch this space. Here is the long-awaited Chapter 4 of  my suspense/thriller eBook; The Kidnapping. Enjoy!

Don’t play games, kid. It won’t work with ussomenextghar

A few hours had passed since Piedro had left…The sun had risen and the heat was increasing rapidly. Jason was still hunched up, sitting against the very same wall that Piedro had slammed him against. His eyes were swollen with the lack of sleep and anxiety, yet he forced himself to be awake, almost to slow down the time. By this time, Drew and Arthur were taking it in turns to sleep on the bunks, and it was Arthur’s turn to sleep and Drew’s turn to keep guard of the hostage.

Blog 20 – Where Technology will be in 20 Years


PS4 vs Xbox One compositeSo this week, Technology nerds must have exploded in more ways than one, what with E3 and WWDC and the introduction of next-gen gaming/smartphone technology.

So initially, I was going to do an Xbox One Vs Ps4 article. But I didn’t really think that it would be ideal for me to write because;

Blog 19 – How Celebrities Cause Injustice


English: Rapper Wiz Khalifa performing at the ...

Lately, I have had a major sense of discomfort when it comes to celebrities…Notably one in particular(but I’ll get to that in just a second, even though you’ve probably already guessed by the picture).

When I say ‘Celebrities’, I mean Singers/Rappers mainly.

Before I get into this, I don’t endorse criminal activity of any sort but nor am I targeting a specific use of drug as ‘bad’ or a specific person as being ‘bad’. It’s just a pessimistic view on things, like a lot of other things I write.
