Currently – An Instagram Blogging Experiment Update

Instagram blogging, thoughts about life and plans for the future. Catch up with me!

Currently - Instagram blogging Update

Hello friends, family, and gentle humans!

It is I, the Uphill Writer. I have returned after a brief hiatus from the blog after a (short) Instagram experiment.

At the start of Feb 2018, I wrote a post where I chatted about the little experiment I was going to attempt. You can read all about it here, but basically, I was going to attempt to blog exclusively on my Uphill Writer Instagram account for the rest of 2018.

Here’s the thing, I failed at that Instagram blogging experiment. Ha! I did a few posts (which I’ll list below), but overall, it was just too restrictive. There’s a character limit, no formatting, and it just didn’t scratch that blogging itch the way I had hoped it would. So I’ve decided to kick that idea to the curb and I’m back here on the blog where I belong!

I’m on holiday at the moment so I thought I’d do a quick ‘currently’ catch up post now that I’m back.

News, Plans & Experiments

Experiments at Uphill Writer

Hello friends and readers! Welcome to 2018.

Seeing as February has arrived (and we all know that January is the first pancake of the year), it’s time to make a few changes around here!

What would life be without a little fun and change? Boring, that’s what. I’ve decided to do a little experimenting on the blog, because I can. This isĀ my blog after all.

Basically, I’ve been struggling to blog lately. As much as I love it, I simply get really busy and in the list of things that need to be done, blogging has fallen to the bottom. Another issue I seem to be having is that my laptop is for work and my PC is for gaming, which means my brain won’t get into blogging mode! I realise this is weird.

Bringing memories to life with PrintWild

I have a confession to make, you guys. I work a lot and I’m also a serial procrastinator. It’s probably one of the reasons that I’ve been married for 3 years and up until recently, I hadn’t printed a single photo of my wedding for my own home. I don’t know how or why, it just hadn’t happened.

That’s why, when PrintWild.co.za contacted me via Instagram and wanted to give me a little gift, I couldn’t say no.

Photos and memories with Printwild

(Actually, the lovely folks from PrintWild contacted me via Pixel and Pip’s Instagram account! Who would’ve thought the little rascals would grab so much attention.)

Like I said, I couldn’t resist when PrintWild sent through a little gift that meant I could print photos for my home. I had a choice of their products and I grabbed the opportunity to print a few Faceblocks. I was able to print 7 Faceblocks in fact and I love them.
