Word of March: Talk

I'm not much of a talker (although Rich would disagree!). I've always been a little socially awkward and afraid of talking to people, although once I know them well, I never shut up! Luckily for me, in this day and age, the need to talk in person (or on the phone, which is one of my most hated things to do!) has diminished, so it's a lot easier for me to communicate.

Having said all that, I want to push myself this month. This is going to be the month of talk, both offline and on. Let's take a look at my goals.
I'm gathering a bunch of bloggers to come to the Pixar Pyjama Party at Prince Charles Cinema at the end of the month. I'm hoping there'll be a fair few people there- I'd love to meet 10 new bloggers!
  • Maybe talk to some of my inspirations.
Twice this month, I will be attending presentations at the Southbank Centre by two of my inspirations, Grayson Perry and Malala Yousafzai. If I get the opportunity to talk to them (which I know is very unlikely), I'm going to bite the bullet and go for it! 
  • Reply to blog comments every Sunday

A few weeks ago, I started replying to blog comments every Sunday since I was finding it difficult to stay on top of it. It started off well, but I've had such a busy week that I've fallen behind. I'm definitely going to get back on it! 

Hopefully, this will push me to talk more in my life! 


  1. I'm quite similar in the way that I'm very quiet around people I don't know, but as soon as I become more comfortable around them I'm difficult to shut up! I still utterly despise talking on the phone but hopefully I'll grow up a bit year seeing as it's becoming something I have to do more often and can't just leave to my mum and dad x

    1. Talking on the phone is the worst thing in the world! I try to get Rich to do it if possible!

  2. I'm exactly the same - very shy around new people but once I get to know someone then I can talk for England! Having a set day to reply to blog comments is good, I'm starting to get a few more and need to reply to them so think doing all the responses on a particular day will help me stay on top of them. And looking forward to meeting you at the pyjama party!

    1. As you can see, this is my set comment replying time! I can't wait to meet you too!


I read all comments and appreciate every single one, even if I can't always reply. If you have a question or need a reply, feel free to tweet me @BeckyBedbug- I always reply to tweets!
