Pet Peeves At A Concert; A Rant Coming Up!

Good morning!
Recently, I was lucky enough to be able to see Emeli Sande live in concert, thanks to a very generous offer of press tickets. But whilst I was there, a few things really annoyed me, whilst trying to enjoy a good concert. So, but if a grumpy post today, but here are my pet peeves at a concert:
The person always on their phone.

Throughout the concert, they will be on Facebook, Instagram, even Snapchat. And only part of this is to document the concert going on in front of them. The huge, lumimous screen is the distraction-seemingly exarcebated by the darkness a concert usually takes place in. Can’t we just enjoy it, without technology, for once? Like back when Rock concerts were a full foot-stamping-sing-along affair? Because that looks far more entertaining and enjoyable.

People moving about the row.
Or even just walking out. There’s probably a clearer cut exit path than having to bumble down one fully packed out row. Instead of going through a throng of people, and treading in their toes, why not go out the right way?

Hecklers
At a stand up concert, the put downs can be rather funny. (Look up Jimmy Carr vs Blonde Women on YouTube if you don’t believe me!) But at a concert? I remember seeing Anastacia back in 2015, yet whilst she was talking-due to a Q&A feature of the Resurrection tour-a group were constantly heckling her, meaning we couldn’t hear her. It’s not funny! And it was all really crude axioms, seemingly sexual, that were being shouted. I wish for the artist to be in control, and to enjoy their show. Heckling is not very funny at a rock concert.
Playing your own music.
You pay decent money to watch a show, but then there’s always one person who gets their phone out, in order to play their own music, usually during the middle of a song. Why?! Just Why?! We come to hear the artist, often on in a quite pricey ticket, not your rap music that’s muffled in its sound. Turn it off, sit down, and enjoy the show. You won’t annoy anyone, promise.

Feet on seats.

Why is it acceptable to put your feet up on the back of somebody else’s chair? Even if there is very limited leg room, I don’t wish to smell your stinky shoes, or to be annoyed at you kicking my chair. Besides, you can always stamp your feet in time to the beat on the floor.
What are your pet peeves at a concert?

Blogging Myths Debunked.

When I’ve been chatting to a few Friends, there has been a few misconceptions-and they largely revolve around my blog. So, for this post, I thought I would debunk a few blogging myths.

  • I get paid for blogging.

Nope, not at all. I do not get paid for any of the posts I wrote-and I largely consider brand samples to be a sufficient payment at the moment. Whilst I would love to monetise my blog-as in, get paid-I haven’t yet been able to. I’m not enough of an influencer to be considered for this. And besides, though a possible source of income, it wouldn’t necessarily account for a real wage. 

  • I meet a lot of famous people.

The interviews you sometimes read are with semi-famous people; because, after all, fame is something incredibly subjective. However, I have only carried out one interview face to face-and that wasn’t even for is website! So, I don’t really meet a lot of famous people. I do however get to go to concerts, etc, thus seeing them live and in action. (I meet the occasional person-yet this is not really notable.)

  • I don’t spend a lot of time writing.

This is the one that frustrates me the most; I put a lot of time and effort into my posts, and I also post every day. A lot of time is spent creating content-so, photography, words, guest posts, etc.

  • That I am obsessed with social media.

Social media, whilst useful for any blogger, in order to promote their posts, I actually find quite cumbersome in reality. For me, it is quite hard to operate-and I’m not always aware of invisible social codes. Twitter is one of the easiest, yet I get bored of trolls very easily; and why be bitchy, any way? Technology could be used for something higher-ratherthan being   trivialised, and used to be nasty.

What blogging myths have you recently come across?
