WHY I BLOG? WHY I WRITE? WHY I BREATHE.

Blog’s have become a huge opportunity for writers globally, to communicate within one post. A tool, that can give you freedom to express, describe or translate. The ability to be your own creator. In other words, your own boss. Some writers do it for money, or studies, or for even their work. For me? I do it for passion. Something I’ve never been able to not do. Even if it is writing just a quote a day, or a bunch of lyrics, or a heartfelt essay of collection of thoughts and feelings. It’s almost like breathing to me. IT BECOMES NATURAL.

You can always read examples for help, you can find four common styles of writing. Expository, Descriptive, Persuasive, and…

DO MANNERS MATTER? LIVING IN THE UK

In this post, we are going to talk about English manners and what kind of behaviour is considered to be polite and what impolite. In England, people place a great deal of importance in good manners. It is well known that this is a multicultural place and you can find people here from all around the world, especially in London. As a result, you will often come across different accents and cultures in your every day life. Having a broken English accent isn’t a problem really, but not being aware of the basic British etiquette rules can be. You may sometimes upset people by things that you say or do, even if these things seem perfectly normal in your own culture. Despite who you are or where you came from, your manners have a direct impact on your social and professional success. Follow this list of important social etiquettes and Londoners…
