Stuff To Do When You’re Bored

Hello everyone! I’m writing this because I’m bored, and because I wanted to do this post of late.

So, without further ado, I present to you, some of the things I do when I’m bored!

P.S Don’t take my word for this, there could be other things out there that you do when you’re bored!


• Play around with social media

If you have Pinterest, Instagram or any social media at all,you can just surf on your feed. Sometimes, I like to search up celebrity names to find out if they have an account. 😜

• Blog

Like I’m doing now! Here are some post ideas: Easy Snack Ideas, Free Stock Images, ( And you could have a lot of fun taking the photos) and like this post, Stuff to Do When You’re Bored.

• Listen to songs

I don’t know about you, but when I’m bored, I like to sing along to my favorite songs.

• Prank call your friends

If you friends doesn’t have your parents’ number, use their phone, call your friend’s number and stay silent when they pick up. I actually got this idea from my own friend, who did that to me once.

• Binge-watch your favourite television series

Sometimes TV can be your best friend. 😅

• And last of all, read

This is for all the bookworms out there, and I one of my favourite reading spots is in the corner of my room, and I’ll just curl up with a book.

A few blogging tips

I have seen a lot of these posts recently, and I decided to give it a shot!

1. Stick to your plan

If your blog is about photography, but then you go write a post that’s about, I don’t know, books, then that doesn’t make sense. A lot of the blogs I see and follow are lifestyle, writing or cooking blogs.

2. Be kind

You may see this pop up a lot, but it’s true. A few tips for being kind is that when someone follows you, try to check out their blog. I mean, they follow you for a reason right? Also, when someone comments, always always reply.

3. Post frequently

It can be once a week, once a day or even a few times a month. But no reader wants to read a blog that’s inactive. My goal is 3 posts a day, not counting the daily quotes.

4. Post pictures

Pictures are there to jazz up the post and add a bit of color. Even if it’s taken by your mobile phone, phones are also cameras! Or, if you want to skip the photo taking, you can also create your own featured images online. I love to use Canva, just that I’m sometimes too lazy to open it up. My blog logo is made using Canva.
