Giveaway | Win makeup

It has been ages since I last did a giveaway. I don’t do them too often, but I think it is time to give back. And for two reasons! On 4 September 2018, this blog, this little nook on the WWW came up on its 8th anniversary. 8 years! As if things could not get…

Why this isn’t a beauty blog

Today’s post was a spur of the moment idea. Not because I didn’t know what to blog about, but because I suddenly felt an urge to say a bit more about my blog and my reasons for doing things the way I do them. Of course, if you have any suggestions for improvement, I’m all…

Happy 4th blog anniversary!

Today is the day! September 4th 2010 was the first day my blog went live. I knew nothing about blogging, had never done it before and had no idea what to do. Here we are 4 years later and still going strong. And what a ride it’s been. Earlier this year I finally decided what…

Happy 3rd blog anniversary to me!

Whoops I completely forgot, but thankfully WordPress reminded me. Three years ago, it was a cold, dreary September evening. It was Friday and I was bored. So I decided to do what any bored person would do: I started a blog. Springing from my desire to write, I had no direction, no idea, nor did…

Poll: what would you like to see on Floating in Dreams?

It’s been a while since I did one of these. In fact, the last time I asked what you, the reader, would like to see on here was almost 2 years ago. I have been noticing that new people have started reading my blog and so I am interested in what you would like to…

Blogs I read

Where yesterday I had a post up on writing, today it will be about reading. Just the other day I realized I never shared the blogs I like to read. I have shared youtube channels before, but no blogs as such. First up I’d like to say: I don’t read many blogs. I’m not one…

How not to write… or?

I had grand plans to write a long post on how I exactly write my blogs. Due to the loveliest of lovely weathers and my willingness to enjoy as much of it as I possibly can, I figured that that would have to wait a bit. Instead, I would like to show you the following…

Website: Letters of Note

A few days ago I came across this really nice blog called Letters of Note. This blog has regular posts with letters of famous authors, politicians and the like. Some sent to family members, others to newspapers, publishers, friends and partners. Now, if you like languages like I do, then I’m sure you will enjoy…

500 blog post giveaway contest

It’s finally here! My 500 blog post giveaway! A little over a month ago I posted my 500th blog on this little nook on the web. At the time of that post I promised that I would have a giveaway contest to honor this amazing fact as without the people reading my daily musings this…

Dialectblog.com: On language variation

Just the other day I found one of the coolest blogs on the web: dialectblog.com. Of course you do have to like English language variation for this, but I think it’s pretty neat. Not only does it list American, British and Irish accents and their features, but the author also delves into language variation phenomenon,…
