Our little Poetry Bar community is growing on Instagram as well! This actually comes as a surprise to me because The Poetry Bar Instagram is not as active as The Poetry Bar here because not all of you have Instagram accounts and I don’t like sharing your work there if I can’t tag your IG as well for other people to check you out.
Anyways, I am very happy to see we hit 300 followers on our Poetry Bar Instagram account yesterday. I will put in much more effort to grow that platform as well for all of you to enjoy 🙂
I hope you are all staying safe during this difficult times. Feel free to comment below how are you feeling and reach out if you need some help. We are all in this together <3
I wish a happy holiday to everyone, I hope you are having a wonderful time. I know I already feel fat with all of the food my mother has been preparing lately. Also, I finally have days off work so I can be at home, with my family, rest and dedicate my time to my blog.
This last part is what I actually want to speak to you about. At the end of each year my brain, without my complete consent, starts to compare my life a year ago to my life today and I realized that my months of dedicating to much of my time and energy to my jobs and going through writer’s block has resulted in ny blog engagement and quality to decrease. The quality decrease is not referring to The Poetry Bar submissions, they are actually what keeps our community going, but the content I have been uploading is not what it was before and I feel very bad and guilty about it.
I am growing up, I do not have as much time as I had during my uni days but still this is not an excuse. I had big plans for this blog and for us as a community, I wanted us to expand and I neglected this blog because I was chasing paychecks and stressing about my jobs even when I had days off.
To sum this up, I decided to GET MI SHIT TOGETHER! Any time you feel like I am absent or that I am neglecting you, call me out on that. Write down in the comments that I am being a bad blogger again, keep me accountable for my actions.
I decided to change the blog a bit when it comes to my personal posts. I will still be posting my poetry work because poetry is life, but I will also dedicate more posts to my love for dressing up which you could have noticed on Instagram where I post my poetry works typed on my typewriter Olivia and my outfits. I am no fashion blogger but I do like dressing up because as much as I express myself through poetry I express myself through clothes and the way I look. The instagram:
Also, I thought of starting a little column type of thing. Before I would upload these longer posts on Saturdays where I would ramble on about stuff I thought about and wanted to share with you. Yesterday while reviewing my blog I came up with the idea to make a series called Coffee date with Luna. Here I would resuscitate those columns of mine and discuss different topics from what happens in my life to whatever you would like to read about and we would have discussions in the comment section because I love it when you leave comments and talk to each other. I even thought of filming videos and posting them for the Coffee Date but I am not making this promise yet. I will still stick to my keyboard and not to a camera. Make sure to write down in the comments what you think about this idea and what would you like to read about during out Coffee dates!
I have seriously been rambling on in this post. Anyway, this is all I had to say blog wise for the upcoming year. Whenever I will be changing something, I will let you know. Can’t wait to see your comments!
Lately I have been trying to stay active on my social media such as Instagram, Facebook and Twitter and let me just tell you that I suck at it. I am not a social media person but I am working on it because I know that social media can increase our blog stats and bring more people to The Poetry Bar and to your blogs!
I will put the links to all of the social media we have and I have a question for you. Which one do you prefer: Facebook, Instagram or Twitter?
In my last outfit post I told you all about the work my mom and me have been doing in our apartment and I told you I had a fridge in my room and a bunch of furniture. Well, it’s gone! Finally!
Things are going to get even messier the next week but this weekend I can actually walk to my bed without jumping over something or attaining random bruises from bumping into 6 pieces of furniture all around my room.
I spend most of the morning working like an idiot because we had to clear all of the trash and old furniture from the apartment. I can’t feel my arms and my legs hurt like hell, but it had to be done. My weekend is lazy and party-free again. Also I am incredibly broke so let me tell you about this shirt I thrift shopped a while ago.
Since I am broke and love clothes I have to thriftshop. I just love this skirt because it really shapes my body well, I think it’s really elegant and can be worn in any occasion. The top is from Stradivarius. I actually always felt like I shouldn’t leave the house in it because it kind of looks like lingerie but who gives a crap. I don’t. I really like the outfit and will be posting more this week so make sure to follow me on Instagram at @luna.theblog.
I know that my blog completely revolves around writing and poetry but I’ve always kept this category called “My Life” where I wanted to post stuff that happen to me, where I go etc., but I am not really the kind of person to take pics when I am out, having a good time, hanging out with my friends. Currently the only thing I have going on for me is work. I go to work, come home, blog, blog, blog, shower, blog, blog, blog, pass out in bed. That’s my life for the past… for a while now but I still wanted to keep this category alive until I get out there and get a life so here’s an outfit I posted today. I wore it nowhere because I can’t come dressed like this to work and I think it would be uncomfortable to sleep in it. I am just being embarrassingly honest in this post. I have no life. Can someone relate so I don’t feel alone in this all hustle and grind lifestyle?
Since there has been many new members of The Poetry Bar, sippin’ coffee and reading poetry with us I just want to give a quick reminder to all of you that The Poetry Bar has it’s own Instagram account and that you should check it out and follow. Not all of the works are there, but many of them are. Here’s the link:
Happy International Women’s Day to all of you wonderful, strong, powerful, beautiful women! I just want you to know that I want you to always be ambitious, strive for happiness and fight for yourself. Live life at your own terms and don’t let anything or anyone define who you are. Your worth can’t be measured. I hope you all have a great day and a great weekend.
My Women’s Day started yesterday actually. I celebrated a little with my boyfriend and today he woke me up with a surprise flower delivery to my door and I just can’t seem to erase this smile off of my face. This evening I am going out with my girl Isabella. We have a table at our favorite bar and a bottle that’s going to make us make fun decisions and good memories. Love you all, have a great day!
So guys, I already told you about Olivia, my typewriter that I found in my mother’s apartment. I am so happy that I have her and I’ve decided to post some of my poetry that I typewrite up on Instagram. Do you like it?
As I said I would, so I did. The Poetry Bar has an Instagram account! I have a few pieces published, mostly from authors who do have Instagram so that I could tag them. All of you who want to have your work on that Instagram page will have it I just need your Instagram links and also I would like for you to write if you’re okay with me posting your work on social media. I know that The Poetry Bar Instagram doesn’t have so many followers but just as any other project in life, we have to work together to make it bigger, grow audience and reach more people.
