My 10 Most Popular Posts This Year

Right, let’s go straight into my 10 most popular posts out of the 37 that I’ve shoved your way this year. And because I’m not the least bit ashamed, I’ll also let you know my least popular post at the end. Just for balance.

Oh, but first please let me say THANK YOU so much for reading my blog. I hope you have enjoyed it as much as I have enjoyed writing it and my blog would be nothing without you all. You’re all superstars!

10. A Guide to Hanging Out with Cloth Ears

deaf culture huh

This may have been even more popular if I hadn’t published it just as a Facebook post first of all. This post runs through everything you need to know if you either want to know what it’s like to be deaf or want to know what to consider if you’re spending time with someone who is hard of hearing. Ignorance is not bliss.

9. Halloween Playlist!

This did surprisingly well and still gets regular views today. Err guys, it’s not Halloween anymore.

8. Just Another Book Club- July Book

My first dabble with my online book club and it went down very well. Lots of people had lots to say about this one.

7. Top 10 TV Character Fashion Idols

Catastrophe

This post provides a run down of all my favourite fashion icons that have ever graced our TV screens. From Denise Huxtable to Sybil Fawlty, it’s an eclectic collection.

6. Just Another Book Club

Books-IFOA-2016-Tanja-Tiziana

An introduction to my idea of holding an online book club and luckily lots of people seemed to be as excited by it as I was. It also gave the list of books to read for the latter part of 2017.

5. F**KING SCOOTERS

I stand by every word of this and I still fucking hate fucking scooters.

4. Love Your Body

A lot of people sadly were able to relate to this. I talked about how there has been a steady increase of eating disorders in very young girls and I suggest ways we can all help to combat this.

3. Everyday Sexual Harassment

Another post that sadly a lot of people could relate to. Whilst it was quite devastating to hear other people’s experiences, it was in some way slightly comforting to know that I am clearly not alone with my experiences of sexual harassment. This post still regularly gets daily views.

2. 10 Most Influential Albums of my Teenage Years

This post is what you might call, a slow burner. It got moderate views when it was first published, but it receives views most days, which meant it slowly crept up my list of most popular posts.

  1. Dear Stephen

hand-on-shoulder-dreams-about-people-who-have-died

Whilst this remains the hardest blog post that I’ve ever written, what is wonderful about this post being so popular is that so many of you lovely people read and heard about my wonderful friend. It helped make it the tribute that I wanted it to be. It would also be nice to think that it may have possibly helped someone somewhere.

The one that didn’t quite make my top ten: The Importance of Creativity for Children 3 views away from making the top 10.

My least popular post this year: Music Tag Thingy, but then again I didn’t really do a very good job of promoting it. It got a paltry 56 views- whoop.

My most popular post ever: Why Women’s Procreation Choices are None of Your Business. Nuff said.

Thanks again and see you next year for more irrelevant and irreverent shit (I really know how to sell myself, don’t I?)

 

Best Oscar Outfits 2016

As everybody else will be banging on about the Oscars this morning, I thought I’d add my twopence worth. Here’s a run down of my favourite outfits from last night’s glamour event of the year (in no particular order).

  • Brie Larson I loved this dress from the Oscar winner for best actress in a leading role (for the excellent Room). I’m also very pleased she won the Oscar too.Brie Larson
  • Alicia Vikander I adore the choice of yellow for the Oscar winner for best actress in a supporting role (for The Danish Girl). She gave a phenomenal performance in the role.Alicia Vikander
  • Cate Blanchett Cate didn’t win the Oscar for her part in Carol, but never mind she looked divine in this pretty dress by Armani. She always gets it right on the red carpet.

  • Saoirse Ronan This is a gorgeous mermaidesque green dress for the Irish Oscar nominee (for the brilliant Brooklyn).

  • Naomi Watts Maybe mermaid was the theme at this year’s Oscars? I love how the different colours merge into each other for Naomi’s outfit.Naomi Watts
  • Margot Robbie Wasn’t it clever of Margot to come dressed as an actual Oscar statue? It’s a stunning dress nonetheless.Margot Robbie
  • Chloe Pirrie This lovely art deco type dress is certainly one of my favourites.Chloe Pirrie
  • Olivia Munn Orange is a colour considered to clash with the red carpet, but I love someone that dares to wear an unusual and bright colour to Oscars.Olivia Munn
  • Emily Blunt Best Oscar maternity dress goes to Emily, who’s pretty pink dress is perfection.

  • Mark Ruffalo And the best dressed male award goes to Mark as he broke the mould and didn’t wear a completely black tuxedo. Also I just wanted to mention him as I absolutely loved him in Spotlight.Mark Ruffalo
