Sometime in November I decided that I was going to do Blogmas. Y’know, that thing bloggers do where they post every day in the lead up to Christmas? Yeah. That.
Now if you’ve been here for a while, you’ll know that back in June (before I revamped Petticoats and Patriarchy), I attempted to Blog Every Day in June. I lasted about 14 days before I gave up completely because I was bored and the posts I was putting out were mediocre at best.
So why the fuck are you attempting Blogmas?! I hear you cry.
Because I’m a fucking nutcase, alright?
But attempting it I am, so to kick proceedings off I thought I’d prepare you for what to expect from Blogmas on Petticoats and Patriarchy. Think of this post as a Shakespearian prologue, if you will.
Sex (drugs, and sausage rolls)
Okay, so no drugs. Or sausage rolls. But definitely sex.
Now I’m not going to be sharing intimate details about my sex life cos that ain’t my style – but I will be posting some sex ed content. So if you wanna learn about periods, hormones, and the female anatomy, stick around dear readers!
A Brief History Of…
You may or may not have noticed that the world has, quite frankly, gone to shit this year. Britain fucking Brexited; America played their fucking Trump card; and things are just generally a bit shit if you enjoy civil liberties and you’re not a straight, white, cis, wealthy man.
As a History graduate, I firmly believe that understanding the past is the key to changing the future. So you can expect lots of political educational content this month – covering everything from A Brief History of Fascism; to A Brief History of Islamophobia; to a Brief History of the UK Major Political Parties.
My hope is that by trying to understand how the world got to be as fucked up as it is, we might be able to do something about it. Or at least be able to argue more coherently in the pub.
Cos I’m on brand, innit.
Now you may have noticed that none of that sounds very festive – and that’s because it isn’t. Most bloggers spend Blogmas writing gift guides and baking recipes and DIY tutorials (all of which I love, don’t get me wrong), but that’s just not my style. Do you know what is my style? Angry, ranty, ramblings.
So if any of the above sounds appealing to you, keep your eyes peeled this month! You can also follow me on Twitter where I’ll be shamelessly promoting all my Blogmas posts, and generally just being highly amusing.
