Budding Blogger: How Do You Know What To Blog About?

Q: Ever since I've told the world, okay the people I know, about my blog, I get loads of girls coming up to me and saying: 'I really want to start a blog; I just don't know what to write.' To be honest, I don't really ever have a specific answer for them as blogging is different for every individual. The reasons why you blog should be for yourself and what you post should be completely up to you. However, I can give you some help into finding what you should blog about...

A: You shouldn't follow the crowd and post what everyone else is posting unless it really interests you. If it doesn't interest you it will show in your writing and no one will read it... you probably wont even read it.
When I first started blogging I thought I should do what everyone else did and that was monthly favourites. Ohhh, how I hate monthly favourites. I wrote some anyway and found whilst reading them back that I sounded so bored and dull and that was because I was bored and dull and uninterested in what I was writing. 

So, I guess I can say this to them: write what you want to write. Write what you are generally interested in. If you are not interested in it- don't write about it. Simple. The more you write about what you are interested in the more feedback and communication you will receive from others as you will enjoy doing it. 

Just remember, everything takes time. It does. It will take a good few months of blogging and reading other blogs to find what you are most interested in.

Bookworm #4: The Hunger Games: Catching Fire Review

I know, I know you were probably expecting a review on the movie... sorry. Also, I hate to break it to you but the books are always, ALWAYS better.

Out of all three books, Catching Fire is definitely my favourite and that's not just because of the character of Finnick. Trust me, Finnick will steal your heart, both book and probably movie. Also, I love the twist of the book; all of the former winners have to go back and compete. It was interesting to read how the Capitol came up with all the tricks and turns when in the games and I believe Suzanne Collins did an excellent job in imagining everything.

Once again, the outfits worn by Katniss are so amazing and I cant wait to see them in the movie. I also can't wait to see them go into the Capitol on their little adventures. I'm really trying not to give anything away here... just look forward to a whole load of Katniss and Peter and blubbering (not blubbering, just a tiny depression.)

Overall, Catching Fire is an amazing book, which was written very well. It has a lot of surprises and quick turns whilst the team battles the Capitol in both the Games and the City.

Have you read the Hunger Games books? Which one was your favourite?
