four hundred of you | mini update

Today we hit 400 followers on The Electric Oracle – as always, THANK YOU for following! I appreciate it more than you could ever imagine.

I know that I was meant to post something a little longer + more substantial by the end of this week, but I promise it’ll be up by Wednesday of this coming week. It’s going to be related to my experience in college / university so far, should that tickle your fancy.

We’re also relatively close to hitting 5,000 views on here which is wild, by my standards. When we hit 10,000 views I might do a kind of ‘get to know me’ post, or possibly a Q & A. Let me know in the comments if you have any thoughts or suggestions.

I wish you all the very best of health and happiness for the coming week; thank you for being here. ❤

Love and luck,

Clodagh X

just say it | saying everything says nothing

It’s incredibly easy to go overboard when writing. There is, however, a lot to be said for just saying something. No frills. Just get to the point.

We try so hard at times to add depth to something by making it more complex. We hurl in adjectives with all our might, hoping we will strike a more powerful chord as a result. Does it work? In my opinion, not really. It results in nothing but confusion for whoever your message is intended for.

I also believe that an overuse of words conveys fear. A fear of committing to what you are saying, to just spitting it out for the world to hear. For your world to hear; maybe even for you to hear. 

Don’t worry about saying everything. Just say it. Maybe you’ll surprise yourself.
