Nerd Church - Dreamers, BE YOU!

This one's for the dreamers; for the writers, the bloggers, the vloggers, the artists, the entrepreneurs.

(This one's for all you rock and rollers, all you crash queens and motor babies... 😉😎)









Be You graphic











Never f**king give up. Show your stars and your scars to the ever-loving world.

And most importantly, be you.

Don't be someone else's idea of you.

Don't do what everyone else does when they wanna stand out from the crowd - BE YOU.










Sure, you'll struggle to define your 'brand' that way - I mean, wtf is my brand exactly?!

Punk nerd?!?! Bookish Rebel?!?! Geek rock?!?! Weird bird profile pic and half-a**ed graphics with stock photos?!?!

(Without copyright-free stock photos, you guys wouldn't get any pictures on here. I really don't have the patience to take my own pics or make my graphics from scratch. #JustSaying.)










BUT - I never hide my walking-contradiction-ness from you, my dearest nerdlets. Because f**k it, if I'm gonna do this, I'm gonna do it MY way.

So say no to the identikit blog styles - everyone writing about the same things with the same damned minimalist templates and teensy fonts (goddamnit MAKE THE FONTS BIGGER!!!)

Unless, in your heart of hearts, you can tell me that you utterly ADORE the vintage washed-out pastels accompanied by swirly fonts and stylised flowers, that I see absolutely every-damned-where, then ditch them.

IF IT AIN'T YOU THEN DITCH IT, M'K?










How many times have you heard 'the next J K Rowling' or 'the next Hunger Games'...?

And guess what, IT'S NEVER THE NEXT J K ROWLING OR THE NEXT HUNGER GAMES.

I don't care if you're diving for seaweed (people do that, right? That's a job...?) or smacking a dustbin with a baseball bat (what you do on your own time is up to you. #NoJudging) DO IT YOUR WAY.









Don't try to be other people. YOU are not other people. You're you. So BE you.

Go out my nerdlets, and show the f**king world what you can do!









(I don't even know where this rant came from by the way 😅)

  2. hahahahahhaah LOVE this post! yup I used to feel so inadequate because my blog theme wasn't ultra feminine with watercolor flowery headings and super spectacular calligraphy fonts. Now that I got into BuJoing even more! blog AND bullet journal image issues LOL!!! But even though I love to see them and find them so aesthetically pleasing that just aint me. I'm not a super girly girl. I have no idea what my brad is yet. I just know I want to blog about books, my writing and the other things I love like my family, my journaling and cooking :)

    1. Thank you! And yeah, I have no problem with the calligraphy/watercolour dealies, but it's like, why are they EVERYWHERE? If your personality suits that design, then fine! But if you're just doing it b/c everyone else is, then stop!!! (And your blog is awesome! Never feel inadequate!)

  3. There is so much advice out there for all the creative people in the world and people trying to make it big, but do it your own way! Like with writing, there are rules. Know them, and then know when to break them.
