I’ve been doing this now for a couple of years now (thank you everyone who has been here from the beginning) and I think it is time to seriously start moving forward with this shit now.
I have been toying with the idea of setting up a patreon for myself and the blog. Whilst I do enjoy doing this, I want to start doing this on a full time level as opposed to part time. The amount of emotional and physical labour it is costing me to try and be two separate people to get by day to day is too much. I also want to finish the book I’ve been writing for the past two years, and possibly start on a couple of others. I believe that me setting up a patreon will not only encourage me by working harder on my posts, it will start to bring in some sort of revenue.
I am still going to continue to write on here, and I will still have all my content on my blog free to readers. That will not change. I just need to start getting professional with it now. I do want to get a business account as soon as I possibly can, if anything , just so I can have free reign and my own domain name. I also want the ability to be able to continue to do reviews. Unfortunately because of my mobility and cut backs, this has become on the verge of impossible. If I can’t get out the house, I can’t see shit, I can’t grab shit and ibcabt purchase things either.
I also want to try and do a podcast to, where I answer questions about sex,dating, rants and trans stuff. Something that had been a huge part of this blog, but unfortunately something I’ve not been able to persue because of issues. I don’t know if these podcasts would be a patreon exclusive or something else entirely.
Finally I want to have more reader based content. Finding stuff to rant about, whilst highly librating, is also exhausting. GIVE ME TOPICS FOLKS! I also do want to bring back “Fuck you, it’s your turn Friday’s”, where readers submissions get posted to the blog. If you do have topics you want me to personally cover, you can always tweet me @tcausten with an idea.
Basically. I need money, I need to do more things, and I need to get my ass into gear. Please give me reasons to continue this ❤
So this afternoon Kai and I decides to go to Aldi to do shopping for the next few days and we came across this bread mix in the flour aisle.
Now for starters, 49p. 49 fucking pence. You can’t even get a freshly baked loaf for less than 99p these days, so I cannot complain about the price. We are thought that even if its awful, it was so cheep we wouldn’t be upset.
Got it home and used it practically right away. The instructions are really easy to use and the only other thing you need is water. You can either use it with a bread machine or bake by hand. We decided to bake by hand.
We followed the instructions to the letter, and we had felt that it hadn’t sufficiently risen before we put it in the oven, but as I said we followed the instructions.
We shoved it in the oven and left it to bake for the 30 minuets and when it came out, it had raised a little bit more, though for a loaf, it was still quite small.
Now as for the taste, fuck me it was amazing . The tomato wasn’t too over powering and it was quite tasty. Honestly for a 49p mix, it is amazing to make a small loaf as a side dish, but not large enough in my eyes for a regular bread. I honestly would recommend trying it, if anything to show you that the cheep companies are starting to make headway in the premium markets. I will defiantly be buying it again.
***Just to clarify that I do not work, or get paid by Aldi, and this review was just an item that I purchased that I wanted other people to know about***
Firstly I would like to thank everyone who reads my blog. I appreciate the views, from something that has been used as a tool to get out my frustration is getting over 100 views a week. This may seem tiny at the moment but I am so happy about this.
Secondly, as you can see I have re vamped the site. There is an easy way to now follow via email, and a box that shows the content that everyone else is viewing. I hope that these new changes make navigating through this site easier.
Thirdly, there are more changes to come. As promised there will be a minimum of 3 posts a week, as well as that, there will (hopefully) be 2 reviews a month on random products/events/whatever I can. As well as this I am planning to still try and do the guest post slot as much as I can. I’m always looking for guest posts for “Fuck you, its your turn”. As you can guess, they will never end up on freshly pressed, but I have no restrictions on content, unless it breaks the law.
There will hopefully be more link ups, and more posts like ” 10 photos I love” , “Ten things I’m thankful for” (which is a weekend based post) and other challenges like them.
If there is anything that you want to see here, please comment. I’m always willing to try out new ideas.
Again thank you for following me, reading my content and beyond that. Hopefully the next 6 months will be as, if not more successful as the first six months of this blog
