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