Q & A! Writing, Ancestry, Fears and more…

Last week I said I’d do a Q & A to celebrate one year of The Electric Oracle; as promised, here it is! Thank you very much for your questions and kind words.

Love and luck,

The Electric Oracle – Happy 1st Birthday! Q & A to follow, comment questions…

 

I can’t quite believe I’m writing this, but today, the 4th of July, marks one whole year since the beginning of The Electric Oracle!

This space was born out of a need for expression and release; I never thought I would find such a sense of community through my interactions with readers and other writers. I feel incredibly lucky to have this (unexpected) platform. You can read my first ever post here.

Thank you all so, so much for sticking with me this year, all 1226 of you. It is an absolute joy to interact with each and every one of you. I have sought much guidance and wisdom from various comments and exchanges – you have no idea how grateful I am for it all.

In light of this celebration, I have decided to do a Q & A session! Somehow I’ve never done one before…

If you’d like to, leave a question in the comments below and I will answer it in my next post. You can ask whatever you like (provided it’s not NSFW!), whether it be about writing, life, or something more personal. I’ll be accepting questions until this Sunday the 8th July.

You can also comment a question on my latest video here.

Thank you so, so, SO much for this year,

Love and luck,

Here I am chatting about my plans for the future, and how I intend to take a gap year having finished my degree. Enjoy!

Love and luck,

one thousand of you | festivities

Screen Shot 2017-12-23 at 19.38.55I promise this is the last milestone I’ll write about on here, but I do feel like this is a (relatively) big one. This week, The Electric Oracle hit 1,000 followers! To say I’m surprised would be an overstatement, but to say that I’m grateful would be an understatement.

Thank you so, so much for sticking with me, in spite of how erratic my posts have become. If I’m being honest I did not expect final year to hit me as hard as it has, so posting every week has proved a challenge. The idea of posting for the sake of it seems deplorable to me, hence the irregularity.

In the New Year I hope to broaden The Electric Oracle with new kinds of posts. I also look forward to engaging with even more of you, potentially via different platforms.

As I write this it is  – bafflingly –  two days ’til Christmas; 2017 has whizzed past, but I am so glad that I found the time to put my toe in the water with The Electric Oracle. If you celebrate Christmas, I hope you have a glorious day. If you celebrate Christmas and you’re struggling, I’m so sorry. I understand how Christmas magnifies any surrounding negativity and strife. Remember that this will pass, now is not forever. Lastly, if you don’t celebrate Christmas at all, I hope you enjoy the holiday period nonetheless!

Thank you endlessly for your support, it means more than you could ever know.

Love and luck,

site redesign, seven hundred + posting schedule | update

Some of you may have noticed that The Electric Oracle is looking a little different these days; I decided to change things up and redesign the layout. Personally I think it looks sharper – I hope you all like it!

We also hit 700 followers this weekend – as always, thank you endlessly for your support.

Speaking of followers, I’ve been having trouble following people all weekend –  I promise I’m not ignoring anyone! Hopefully the glitch will be resolved soon.

The last thing I wanted to address was a posting schedule for the coming months; I’ll be heading into my final year of my degree in late September, which means I’ll be busy. Very, very busy! In light of this, I’ve decided that any new post I make will go up on Friday, hopefully before 2pm GMT. There will be exceptions to the schedule, but by in large this is how it’ll be.

I hope you’re all as happy and healthy as can be; I can hardly believe we’re in the throes of autumn, summer whizzed past! Hopefully autumn will bring even more new horizons. I’m hoping to make more videos (you can watch the one I’ve already made here) as well as continue writing – what are all of your hopes for the coming season?

Love and luck,

six hundred of you | gratitude + shameless plug

I hadn’t planned on posting today, but a teeny tiny celebration is in order –  thank you for 600 followers?! Having made it to 500 I thought it would take a lot longer to break another hundred, but the internet can be unpredictable at the best of times. Thank you so much for being here, I appreciate it beyond words.

Since I don’t have a whole lot to say, I thought I’d just remind you all of where else you can find The Electric Oracle;

five hundred of you | something different

I’ve gone through about 14 clichés trying to come up with an introduction to this post. THANK YOU FOR 500! As always, I never ever expected to gain any kind of following when I started The Electric Oracle, so to see it grow like this is wonderful.

To celebrate this milestone (of sorts), I’ve put together something a little bit different…

I thought it would be nice to ~expand my horizons~, so there you have it! I won’t necessarily be making videos on a regular basis, but I enjoyed putting this one together + I hope you enjoy watching it just as much. I mean, it’s shoddily edited and very very cringeworthy, but hey. Life is too short to care, “those who mind don’t matter and those who matter don’t mind” etc etc etc. If you make it to the end of the video, I applaud you.

Love, luck & gratitude,
