Blog 51 – Stopping half way through a sentence – Why Bother?

silence

So some (none) of you may have noticed that I haven’t posted for about 2 weeks. Sure I miss the occasional weekly post… But for two darn weeks I went silent.

I went quiet quiet. not even a tweet from either @EssWhyDeeBlog or @EssWhyTech

Sure, It isn’t a huge deal. But what if there was a deeper meaning to the silence?

Just think… Continue reading

Blog 43 – Speaking Normally – Why Bother?

shockwm

What the actual fuck goes on here?

Certain people have this habit. The habit of whispering instead of talking.

Whaaat? Why would you even do such a thing?

As it is, We’re in a noisy environment. These people then decide to go on and actually WHISPER (or near about) as a means of communication.

As if I haven’t had a tiring day and want to just kick back. Now I have to put in all that extra brain-power to solely focus on the bullshit coming outta their collective mouths.

Blog 41 – The Human Jolt (Awkward Sidesteps in Public)

Leicester_City_Centre

I haven’t posted in a while. Which is good news for society because that usually means that nothing is annoying me enough to sit down write about it.

Anyway, today I experienced the human jolt. You heard… The human jolt… – That sidestep thingy we’re forced to do in public.

You know… When two people are walking in opposite directions to each other and you try to judge the other person’s movement and steps to see which side of the narrow pavement they are going to walk on. In movies, It’s a great scene, sure… Some would say it’s ‘cute’, even. But real life tells a whole different story. Believe me… Continue reading

A Quick Overview

coverpicwithedge

Over the past day or two, I have hyped up that I have a few good posts coming up on this blog. I do have the ideas written down, but nothing has been put on WordPress as of yet… I’m holding fire to space out my posts a bit more. Do expect some half decent, well thought out articles in this week and the next.

Not to say that they’ll be the best articles to come from my strange mind… But It’ll be good for a final push to get me about 5 more followers (you’ll soon see why).

Shit… I hope I haven’t upped your expectations too much. Oh, Urm…. Continue reading

Blog 37 – Going Back on my Word

knowledge_hub_fb_hashtags-300x300

The very first readers of The EssWhyDee Blog may or may not recall my first ever rant. It was titled “Blog 3 – Hash Tagging on Facebook” and pretty much laid down the foundation for future rants to come and similar articles. So you could say that it was the beginning of this legacy I have created (not).

It wasn’t massively popular as It was still early days for myself, blogging… But it did end up bringing in some valuable early views. Anyway… A while back, it was pointed out to me that Hash tagging now works on Facebook and so I had to make a decision. Delete, or amend.

I chose neither…

Blog 36 – Secondary Blog?

Orange Employee Multitasking While Operating Four Laptop Computers At Two Different Desks In An Office

Yesterday night, I made the decision to go ahead and delete Blog 36. I realised that it wasn’t the type of post I usually share and therefore would be robbing my regular readers of an entire article in place of a post full of GIF images… If you don’t know what I’m on about, don’t worry. I deleted soon after publishing so you might not have seen it.

Anyway, this gave me a thought… What if I created a secondary blog… One with a niche. I wonder how that would fare compared to this niche-less beast of a blog (barely). So I started thinking… How about technology? My 3 most viewed articles of all time are regarding technology

But then I had second thoughts…

individualMedium

Today, my friends… I will show you the light.

I shall show you how to defend yourself in an argument, how to be untouchable. You heard…

Untouchable.

Blog 34 – Swearing in Pictures – Why Bother?

Quick note: The EssWhyDee Blog has reached 3,000 views! That’s 3K. 3 grand. That’s 10 x 300. That’s five times the population of… Oh never mind, I’m sure you get the picture. – Hold your applause, people. I know. I know.

Don’t you think this GIF is just awesome?!

I might get a lot of stick for this post… But whatever. This isn’t aimed at any particular person so just take it with a pinch of salt.

Swearing in pictures has always baffled me… People flip the camera off, actually posing with their middle finger raised.

It’s just so… Weird.

I genuinely cannot find a logical explanation behind this phenomena, so give me a sec while I get my shit together…

You know what annoys me a substantial amount?

Ok then, if you insist. Here goes…

Blog 30 – Evolution of The EssWhyDee Blog

Official Esswhydeeblog Logo

So… It all started as a mere idea.

I was on a gap year and I had a desire to express my views… In particular, I wanted to share a story.

The first hurdle for me, was choosing the right blogging platform for myself. Blogger seemed like the obvious option, but immediately I was put off… Same situation with Tumblr, but decided I wasn’t going to be a micro-blogger. Finally, I found WordPress, downloaded the Android app and stuck with it… And boy am I glad that I did.

So I finally typed up the story I had to tell. It was called My Bizarre Experience. I split it into two parts because initially, I wanted the very first readers of my blog to return a few days later. I had chosen a very bad, dark theme at the time and everything was all very… Urm… Amateur.

Seriously?

Who even wears sunglasses indoors?

Why would you do such a thing?

Does the Sun penetrate your ceiling, before burning the insides of your retina???

Blog 28 – A Dramatic Little Red Riding Hood Story – Blogisodes

OK… So this is the first in the Blogisodes series… Don’t take it too seriously as It’s only a bit of creative writing… I don’t expect this to garner many likes… But if you do like a bit of fiction now and again… ENJOY!

English: Little Red Riding Hood, illustration ...

It was five in the morning, the Sun was still rising, there was a small sprinkle of rain and the birds were starting to wake. The traffic of London was returning to its usual hectic self and it seemed to be a normal Spring morning.

Although it seemed that the majority of locals were asleep, there was one street, not too far away from the city centre that was more alive than usual. The side street was filled with sirens of police cars and ambulances alike. Every member of the neighbourhood was out on their doorsteps looking on at the tragedy that had just transpired.

Blog 27 – Have you Ever…? ( A Tearjerker )

tennant

What you’ll read below was written out of boredom and has been sitting in my drafts for a very long time.

Usually, If a post goes into my drafts folder, it doesn’t end up getting published…Ever. What goes in, doesn’t necessarily come back out. (Cue evil laughter)

I’ve published it because it had the highest votes in the poll, within this article. However, I don’t expect it to gather many views or likes as it was written very quickly. (Wait, have I just put you off reading the rest of this article?)

But anyway, Get your tissues ready, because you are about to enter the emotional roller-coaster! (Height restrictions apply)

Have you ever…
