Quality Over Quantity

I've seen a lot of posts lately about how people think blogging might go this year etc and I've realised that my main aim for Bethany Georgina, in 2017, is to prioritise quality over quantity. I still want to keep a fairly regular schedule but I want to make sure that I'm 100% happy with every single post before I go ahead and hit publish...

A Wednesday In Whitby

When I was younger, visiting the seaside was something I did a lot more regularly. Up until this trip, I hadn't been to a (British) seaside for at least 10 years! Since Josh had a couple of days off last week, we decided to go on a little day out to Whitby, in North Yorkshire. It's about a 2 hours drive away from where we live but was definitely worth the road trip!

Accepting That Things Take Time

I've realised lately that a lot of my worrying and fretting is often about things in the future; where will I be career-wise in a few years time? Will I ever be able to blog/write full time? When will I save up enough money for a house deposit? When will I get abs? Things that take time. Realistically, unless I win a substantial amount of money, a lot of the things I'd like to happen right now are simply not going to. And that's fine.

Why Word Vomit Is OK Sometimes

I love writing - it's the reason I started blogging, it's the reason I took Journalism at uni, it's the reason I took Media, English Lit AND English Lang at A-Level. But it still doesn't mean that I always know what to write about. I was itching to write a blog post tonight. Purely because I really like the release I feel whilst tapping away at my keyboard - letting all my inner thoughts and ideas out, somewhere in the open. But sometimes I'm a bit like 'errrm?' I have nothing to say. Zero. Zilch. Nada. I mean I could go and edit all the photos I took today at the seaside. But I don't feel like editing each photo within an inch of it's life so it looks #goals. I just want to say shit. But what to say...?

Little Ways To Make Yourself Feel Happier Right Now

First of all, SORRY about the cheesy title. If I read this, I'd probably do a huge eye roll too but hear me out first, okay? This year, one of the main things I wanted to do was focus on my happiness. I find it far too easy to get into a bad mood and not allow myself to escape it. I'll hide away in bed with sad music on, having a little cry, wallowing away in my own pointless, bad thoughts. And, you know what? That's okay. Sometimes I need this. I need to wallow, I need to cry and I need to just feel a little sorry for myself. But I also need to learn how to get myself out of this situation. To not waste an entire day wallowing but to, instead, do something that will switch my mood around. To not allow my mind to take over, basically. I've found a few ways recently that have helped with this and I just thought I'd share 'em on here with you guys!

Easy Ways To Make Extra Cash Online

Okay, so I've done a few posts like this before but I thought I'd do an updated 2017 version for any new readers and, also, for anyone who's just generally interested in making a bit of extra cash online! Someone on Twitter recently asked me to do a post with tips on how I sell things on eBay so I thought I'd just put a post together about making extra money online, in general, and also include some eBay pointers in there, too!

Some Books I Want To Read In 2017

I've set myself the challenge of 'reading more' for the past couple of years, now. Whilst I never go a year without at least reading 5/6 books, I never read enough. I love reading. I'm not someone who just wants to do it because I feel like I should - I genuinely really enjoy it. I miss studying English Literature and dissecting a single quote and thinking about all the different ways it could be interpreted, I miss looking for a hidden message or metaphor behind a seemingly simple sentence. I just really love getting stuck into a good book and I'm always reminded of this when I eventually pick up a book and end up finishing it in a few days flat because I get so hooked.
