Ah, writer's block. The Arch Nemesis of every writer. After starting my blog almost two months ago (as I check the date I realise it has been exactly two months) I aimed to write and publish posts regularly. I averaged I think about two or three posts a week, although there were many days in … Continue reading How I’m Dealing with Writer’s Block
Isn’t it weird that we’re taught the old adage, ‘don’t judge a book by its cover’, but the one exception to this rule is when looking at actual books? I mean think about it.

A week ago I finally officially started a blog by creating this blog and writing my first blog post. When I did that, I wasn’t entirely sure if I would even continue writing more posts or not. Nevertheless, I felt inspired and motivated, and decided to strive for at least one blog post a day … Continue reading Happy one week to my blog!
I have wanted to start a blog for years. Finally, last night on a whim I created this blog and wrote my first blog post. But why did I choose the blog name “A Conglomeration of Thoughts”? Honestly, I don’t really have an answer to that question. I really just don’t know. Just like the … Continue reading Why “A Conglomeration of Thoughts”?
