As a blogger trying to increase my reader count it’s posts like this that help a but load! What makes it so much better is the fact that it’s short and sweet. Long in depth posts have a lot of beneficial information, but reading it can often be intimidating….

I highly recommend you check out this post and the amazing blog it goes with!

If you’re reading this the likelihood is you already run a blog. Many people today have their own blogs, as there are many different benefits. Whether you’re a student, a business or a singer, a blog can benefit you in many different ways. For instance, it can;

– Help you to reach a wide audience

– Make you money!

All of these things can benefit you personally, and there are various ways to help your blog be as successful as it possibly could be. Here are three ways to help your blog become successful;

– Write short posts. Most people who read content online are used to jumping from snippet to snippet, so they expect posts to be written in easy, digestible chunks. Posts between 300 or 600…

Two years ago to the day An Opinionated World was born! Two years ago to the day, bored with all my spare time I created this blog to host my various ramblings. Two years is a decently long time. So much can happen! You can get two years older, grow a decent length beard, write a book, read plenty of books, procrastinate excessively, obtain degrees, re-think life, join a cult, give up on life, and so many more other kinds of SPECIAL things.

How far I have come (in my mind) since that day is amazing! The piece below is roughly 60 words long. In two years I have gone from 60 words to posts of 300 words on average and have even wrote two or three (I believe it’s two but I’m not sure) posts with word counts exceeding 1000. Before I started blogging I had written a number of pieces over 300 words for school but when I had the idea to start my blog, I would never have thought that I would consistently write posts around and or above 300 words.

Since starting blogging my love and passion for witting has greatly increased. I wanted to he an author long before I started blogging but how much I enjoy and get out of it is ten times as high as I could have imagined it would be. On top of that, my writing ability has improve as a whole through writing I enjoy causing it to become more second nature than it is already. Even my writing for school has improved.

My blogging goals for the future:
Mostly I just want to keep writing for my blog and increase my reader count on top of that though I do have some goals I would like to achieve. Midway through last year I attempted to put together a group blog entitled All That Happy Jazz in aim of creating a blog that brought different kinds of writing together into one centralized point. To do this I enlisted the help of a number of friends and people I had worked with and they became my rag tag team of writers. Unfortunately my plan fell through as I discovered most of the writers had too much going on at the time to commit to regular posting. Although this was unfortunate and didn’t work the way I wanted it to, I wasn’t mad. I couldn’t blame them for having personal lives outside of blogging. Not everyone is overly passionate about blogging. Although my idea was a bit of a failure as well as it’s attempted rebirth shortly after it’s collapse, It’s still an idea I would like to work on and hope it can work one day.

I also aim to improve my writing so I can one day obtain the coveted honor of having a post of mine featured on the wordpress Freshly Pressed page. Like with most successes, achieving this takes time and although none of my 200+ posts so far have been featured on the page, I am still motivated to achieve this goal.

Thank you so much for supporting me over the past two years. As always I have greatly enjoyed putting out new content as often as I could in hope it may entertain you for at least the time it takes you to read it or maybe even more. I am excited for what my writing has in store for me in the future and I greatly await my 3rd anniversary in 365 days.

My first post:

An Opinion:

A view or judgement formed about something, not necessarily based on fact or knowledge.

Opinions are what my writing is based about, sure there will be fact behind some of it but I wont always be right. I have come to wordpress so I can just… let out about what ever I have choose … Anyone is welcome to join the conversation.

A lot is definitely going on for me this week and in the weeks to come! some good stuff, some boring stuff. Just all around jam packed full o’ stuff.

P.S. On a more exciting note… Tomorrow is going to be a very good day, one you could say I have been waiting a long time for. Everything will be explained tomorrow so look out for my post.

It’s a very cold and wet day today as it pours down with rain. It’s coming down heavy on the roof as I sit here writing this now. I’m not overly sure why, but part of me wants a thunder-storm to happen. I guess I just enjoy the gloominess of it.

On a slightly less depressing note, my two-year blogging anniversary is gradually getting closer and I have an idea about what I’m going to do for it.

An open letter to the mothers of the world.

Posted on Updated on

Most of the open letters I have seen have been ones full of anger. Most of the open letters I have seen have been used for someone to let out their anger at someone they don’t directly know in hope they may see it and for others to see and use as a life lesson, but not this one. This open letter IS for letting out emotion, but that emotion is not anger. Today I’m letting out love and appreciation for every mother on this earth.

Dear Mothers,

THANK YOU!

For 365 days a year you are nothing but amazing to us. Us your children, your husbands or wives, your partners, your family and your friends. For 365 days a year you cook, you clean and you do what ever you can to help us. Thank you.

Thank you for pestering us to clean our rooms, to clean the house, to do our homework and to make the right choices in life. Thank you for giving us on advice on absolutely anything and thank you for being there for us through absolutely everything.

And most definitely, thank you for letting us live in your house.

Love from,
EVeryone.

Admittedly that wasn’t the most amazing open letter to ever be written, but still I appreciate our mothers. Mothers are probably some of the most selfless people I have ever known and quite honestly there are times where they don’t need to be. Kids get to that point where we can do quite a lot on our own without the help of our mothers yet our mothers are always there to help. Without the amazing mothers of the world life for some people would have been incredibly hard.

So on that note, to all the mothers out there…. Thank you for everything you do.

Happy Mothers day!

I only woke up a short while mainly because the only reason I am awake is because my brother yelled out at me. However I am very happy to wake up and see some of my Facebook posts view counts into the hundreds. I just hope now that some of those views equate to views here on the blog and new subscribers here and on the Facebook page.

The sheer concept that more and more people are reading my content causes me to work harder to release better content.

Suing ALL the homosexuals.

Posted on Updated on

I have now seen it all ladies and gentle men. To be honest I thought I had seen it all before I heard about this but clearly I was wrong! I thought I had heard of all the ways one could possibly be stupid in this world, but today I have been ripped a new one as someone has just proven me wrong and quite easily I might add.

66-year-old Nebraskan woman Sylvia Ann Driskell has recently filed court documents attempting to sue EVERY SINGLE homosexual person. WHAT ON THIS WEIRD EARTH!?

According to the INSANE documents she filed, she sees herself as an “ambassador of the plaintiffs God and His Son, Jesus Christ”…. AGAIN… WHAT ON THIS WEIRD EARTH?

I have NOOOOOO idea why this DOES or should exist. I have no idea what would have to happen in this ladies strange mind to make her want to sue every homosexual in existence for “breaking religious and moral laws”.

I’m seriously sick of this “homosexuality is a sin” crap! Yes freedom of speech is something I support and will always support ’till the day I keel over and die, but WHY OH SCIENCE WHY do people have to go and use their freedom of speech to say stuff like this;

“…homosexuality is a sin and that they the homosexuals know it is a sin to live a life of homosexuality. Why else would they have been hiding in the closet?”

and,

“I’m sixty-six-years-old, and I never thought that I would see the day in which our Great Nation or Our Great State of Nebraska would become so compliant to the complicity of some people’s lewd behaviour.”
(Both comments of Miss Driskell’s).

SHE DIDN’T even specify how she want’s them to be punished. All she wants is a judge to decide whether or not homosexuality is a sin.

WOW some people confuse me!!!!

For the full article and more, see below.

P.S. I love ALL people on this beautiful earth (well at least the ones that aren’t crazily suing other people) and I hope this just goes away nice and quick like

P.P.S. There’s a new Facebook exclusive post up about two of my favourite people in the world!

I attended a careers evening at my school last night which had representatives from some of the major universities and tertiary institutions in Australia. It wasn’t a very long night but it was rather beneficial to be able to discuss my options and thoughts on what it is I want to do after high school.

Although university/ tafe  is just another kind of education I may not like, I’m super excited to be able to get into it and use it to continue to work on my writing and learn more about media.

P.S. I’m interested in doing creative writing and media, possibly even majoring in both (not quite a double degree though).

Thank you Ryan Gosling.

Posted on Updated on

Generally people thank Ryan Gosling simply for existing and being Ryan Gosling however recently I have found something slightly more legitimate to thank our dearest Ryan for.

A quick side note: Originally I wanted to write something of decent length about this giving plenty of thanks and using nice words but sadly I couldn’t honestly think of a lot. HOWEVER I refused not to write this. I just COULD NOT possibly go any more time without letting you know this happened, so I greatly hope you enjoy.

Since short video and social media application Vine was launched, many a popular video and series of short videos have been created. One of these many series is the one simply entitled “Ryan Gosling won’t eat his cereal” and as much as I could possibly glorify it, it was quite simply just 6 second videos of Ryan Gosling not eating his cereal.

Let me now get to the point in all of this:

Ryan McHenry the creator of the vine meme lost his battle to bone cancer and over the weekend passed away at the age of 27.

And as a tribute…. Ryan Gosling finally ate his cereal.

Thank you Ryan Gosling.

To round this sad post out I give you two links…
