Hello fabulous friends of the internet! I hope you are having the loveliest of days today. So, this post is basically going to be about things I want to learn some more about and improve on or simply a few skills I'd love to try out! 


My Blogging Break

Hello wonderful people, it's been a while am I right? Anyways, I did a poll on twitter seeing what you guys would like to see for my first post back and this one won by a landslide. Today I'm going to be talking about my blogging break.


A-Z of The Ordinary Blogger!

Hey guys! Since it's back to school season, I thought I'd do an education-based post involving the alphabet! I've seen a few people do this type of post before so I thought I'd give it a try because I always love reading them. I hope you enjoy!


How to Clean Your Room (My Cleaning Routine, Tips + FREE PRINTABLE)

Hello there all you wonderful people! Today I'm going to be talking about something that not many of us enjoy, cleaning our room. I know, I know, you're probably thinking "Who does this this girl think she is, my mom? You can't tell me how to clean my room" and to that I say you're absolutely right! If you want to just shove all your clothes in your wardrobe and pray they don't all fall out on top of you next time you open it by all means leave. If you want the process to be a little more efficient, stay tuned. 

By the way as I'm writing this I'm literally cleaning my room so this is my full process in case anyone was wondering :)'

So I have some blog post ideas to share with you guys which I will definitely maybe be pulling out when I'm suffering from some writer's block myself.

So without further ado, here's 52 blog post ideas to destroy your writer's block!


10 Things You'll Relate To If You're Pale

Hey guys! As you may know, I'm Irish and although it's not always the case ( some of my friends are blessed with glowing, bronzed skin ) we tend to be pretty pale. Sadly I'm not an exception to the rule and I'm as white as a ghost. I don't want to ramble on so without further ado here's 10 things you'll relate to if you're pale!


The Shuffle Songs Tag

Hey guys! I know it's not a Sunday so this is a bit of a bonus post, lucky you! I've recently been tagged to do this by Ellie from who is the creator of this challenge (as far as I know). For the challenge you have to press shuffle on your music library and then share the first 10 songs that come up. So without further ado join me on this trip down music memory lane!


My Workout Routine

Hey guys! Today I'm gonna be sharing my workout routine with you guys. I did a poll on twitter asking if this was something you guys would be interested in and the results were yes by quite a significant margin so I thought I'd share what I usually do at the gym. (Also my friend and I do this workout together so a few of the exercises may be for two people). 

***NOTE: I am NOT a qualified trainer, this post is for entertainment purposes only. If you are going to do this routine ask a qualified trainer to ensure it is suitable for you and to check you are doing the exercises correctly***

10 Things You Will Relate To If You Grew Up In Ireland

Hey guys! So I recently did a poll on Twitter (follow here if you aren't already) asking what types of posts you would like to see. The most popular was these list-type posts so I figured I'd do another one for this week since people seem to enjoy them. Don't worry if you voted for something else, I plan on doing all of the types I mentioned at some point so they should be coming soon. So I've mentioned before that I live in Ireland, well I've lived here my entire life and we definitely have some quirks. I've seen a lot of "things you will relate to if you grew up in the UK" or from other countries but not too many about where I grew up. So here's my list of 10 things you will relate to if you grew up in Ireland! (Sorry about the long intro)


Tall Girl Problems!

Hey guys! So right now I'm 15 and as far as I know I'm about 5 foot 10 inches tall. Having always been tall for my age I was always told how lucky I am, even when I was a kid and I know there are advantages to being tall . But there are also some annoying downfalls which tend to be overlooked. So today I'm going to be sharing some struggles of being tall.


Storytime: The Halloween Fiasco of 2016

Hey guys! I thought this week I'd do a storytime type post. I've seen these floating around youtube and have always found them pretty interesting so I figured I'd give it a go. I know it's not even close to halloween at the moment but anyways, I hope you enjoy!


Things I Love

Hey guys! Recently I've noticed the world is becoming more and more full of negativity and hate that seems unstoppable. So, I decided that a good step towards getting rid of all the hate would be to spread some positivity around. That's why I decided to make this post as an appreciation post about the things I love.

Hey guys! So, I recently attended a leadership course where I ,and about 50 other teenagers, were taught how to achieve our leadership goals. I learnt a lot about leading a team but one other aspect we talked about was community and things we would change about our community. I noticed that there was one outstanding thing that we would change. Our reputation.


My Top 10 Favourite TV Shows on Netflix

Hey guys! So I don't know about you but I am a regular Netflix-watcher. Unfortunately I often find that I can't find new tv shows to watch. That's why I decided to make this list of my top 10 favourite tv shows on Netflix (since I live in Ireland some of these shows may not be available in certain countries).


Review: It Only Happens In The Movies

Hey Guys! So if you've read my "Hello Internet" post (I'll leave a link at the end) you may remember that I hoped to write some book reviews. Well, here I am doing just that. I hope you enjoy my first book review as the ordinary blogger.

My Dream Job

Hey guys! So as you may know, I'm 15 and in my third year of secondary school. This means not only are we stuck doing our junior cert, we also have to decide what subjects we want to do in transition year. We choose six subjects which we sample to see if we want to do them for our leaving cert. We also have to do work experience which means we have to start thinking about our future careers. 


Gaeltacht packing tips!

Hey guys! I decided I'd make a post about what to bring with you to the Gaeltacht if you are going. If anyone from outside of Ireland is reading, the Gaeltacht is when Irish teenagers spend a few weeks of their summer in an area, which speaks only Irish, to help the earn the language better. I went to a watersport-based Gaeltacht so some of these things may be exclusive to that but most of these will work for all areas. So without further ado, here are my Gaeltacht packing tips!


Storytime: Deciding on a Blog Name

Hey guys! I've decided to write about how I decided on my name for this blog. I know this was probably the most difficult thing about creating this so I decided, why not share it?


Hello Internet!

Hello there internet! I'm the ordinary blogger and this is my first post on my new blog! This is going to be anonymous but I feel I should tell you all a little bit about myself. I'm fifteen and I'm from Ireland. I dream of travelling the world someday. I love sports, reading, drawing, playing music and of course writing. I'm in third year in secondary school and as most Irish readers would know, that is the year of the dreaded junior cert. I think I'm surviving it pretty well so far but who knows?
