What should my next post be about?

While I post some of the pictures I take and plan to learn more about photography, I also like to write about my thoughts, and share my knowledge and experience with you.

There are times I’m not very inspired, and times I have so much inspiration I don’t even know what I should begin with.

I thought of letting you choose what my next post should be about.

It will help me know what content you’d like to read the most.

Maybe this is just an excuse to get some extra motivation.

Let me briefly explain the options.

 

My personal experience with OCPD

I didn’t get an official diagnosis, but I believe most of the traits described in the Obsessive-compulsive Personality Disorder are relatable and affected my life negatively.

Actually, they still do. If you’d like to know more about this disorder, please read the article I posted here on Virily.

I hope sharing my own experience will spread awareness about the most common personality disorder in the US.

 

Racism in Italy

I know, not a positive topic, yet I think it could be interesting to read.

Lately, racial tensions have been rising all over the world, especially in Europe. However, if you’d like to get a different insight from a person who was born and raised in Italy, you know what to vote for.

 

Astrology

Oh no, another post about astrology!

I’m undecided, making this an option with two options.

I could either share my views and the coincidences I experienced, or pick a planet and describe its features, and how it acts in each sign and house.

You can leave a comment telling me what you prefer, but I’m more likely to go for the latter.

 

Poll about make-up

The easiest content, right? Well, I plan to add pictures of me, so it won’t be THAT easy.

I won’t spend money on cheap products I don’t use, that could also ruin my skin. I think I will rely on an app to get false lashes and a countoured face. I don’t even know how to apply that stuff anyway.

I will ask about your make-up routine, habits and preferences.

 

I’ll be grateful if you cast your vote and help me with the following question.

Why do Americans often use apostrophes as ‘quotes’, and not “quotes”? It makes sense when you deal with double quotations, but I’ve seen that happening when it didn’t make any sense. It influences me to the point I sometimes follow that ‘rule’.

  • What should my next post be about?

    • Personal experience with OCPD
    • Racism in Italy
    • Astrology
    • Poll about make-up
  • Do you often put words into ‘apostrophes’ instead of “quotes”?

    • Yes, I often use ‘apostrophes’
    • No, I use “quotation marks”, they were given that name for a reason

What do you think?

  1. It’s funny I never thought about β€˜apostrophes’ verses “quotation marks” before. I always use “quotation marks” out of an old habit. When I’m reading I have always treated them the same. I don’t even really notice when β€˜apostrophes’ are used instead. Now, I will probably notice but it is still “mox nix” to me. Whatever someone wants to use. — I like your bravery of letting readers choose.

    • I guess foreign English speakers pay more attention to grammar rules, because they play an important role when learning a new language, while native speakers seem to give several things for granted. πŸ™‚ I’ve been writing in English for a while, on a daily basis, so I’ve been starting to ignore “your” instead of “you’re” or “their” instead of “they’re”. πŸ˜„
      I kind of regret having let the readers choose, as the winning topic (racism in Italy) is very complex and it’s what led me to take a break. I’m now recovering and writing drafts.

    • I think most prejudices are justified, but a chance should be given to the minorities to make them prove otherwise and earn a better reputation. I’m having a hard time writing an article about racism in Italy, as the trend is recent and we don’t really have the same serious racism (supremacism) of the US… except what comes from the very few fascists left.

    • Now I read everything you wrote here and I have to broaden my previous answer hehehe ;D

      First…, I often feel the same as you when it comes to posting… πŸ˜€

      Second, I think all of these are very interesting, except racism since I don;t like such themes… The first suggestion is also a little harsh but useful at the same time…

      Third, I like everything you suggested when it comes to astrology, all of those are VERY interesting and would love to learn and find out more about it… πŸ™‚

      Fourth, I thought it would be really your make-up not just an app but it could be interesting too…

      PS thanks for being this funny…! πŸ™‚

  2. Racism was a huge problem in the Serie A this season. I like to watch Lazio play, but I cannot root for them because their fans are so racist. The whole incident with Moise Kean and Bonucci was absolutely ridiculous. Fans were so racist towards Koulibaly this season that he is looking to play in England next season. He is looking to leave Italy for England. That’s how racist Italy is.

    • Lazio is one extreme case that thankfully doesn’t represent the whole country. The fans are such a shame. I didn’t know about the incident with Kean and Bonucci. It’s true the fans can be easily provoked, but it doesn’t justify the racism. It takes a high level of stupidity to insult someone because of their skin color.
      At the same time, there are cases where people exploit their condition of being a minority, and play the so called “race card” when it was clear no racism was involved.
      There’s much worse outside soccer, and much better as well, fortunately.
