Social Media: How has it changed the way we live?

Hey guys! It’s KK! So today I am going to be talking about social media. Lots of people around the world use it. As you know, a form of social media can be in apps. The most popular ones are Instagram, WhatsApp, Facebook , Snapchat and TikTok. Of course, there are many more. In my opinion, I think nowadays, people use social media a lot and I think we almost rely on it. So obviously, it has changed the world. But how much ?…

All social media apps have an age restriction. Some of them are higher than others. If you are under age and you have these apps it may be classified as a crime. If you look thoroughly through my website, you will see the Pinterest and Instagram icons. I am under age to have these apps, however they are managed by my mum. A large amount of kids have social media accounts. Do the companies or police do anything about it? NO! I think it is okay for children to have these apps as long as the companies and their parents monitor them.

Just like most things, there are pros and cons to social media. Nowadays, it is much easier to connect with friends, family and colleagues. WhatsApp allows you to text or call contacts for free and Facebook lets you connect with people like many other apps. Other social media apps give you the chance to showcase your work and you passions. On Instagram, you can post photos, have stories that last for 24 hours and also send direct messages. Social media also gives lots of opportunities, such as brands can reaching out to you. LinkedIn can help you find a job or let you speak to colleagues. 

However, behind the perfection, there is a dark side to it all. Nowadays, teenagers specifically have a larger amount of mental health problems than ever before. A few posts have been found on Instagram promoting self harm and suicide. This needs to stop NOW! The apps should monitor the posts more often and deal with the situation. If you have seen my Instagram, you would know that I like makeup and beauty, therefore I follow a lot of beauty influencers. It almost seems as if there is a way you should look; there is a set image. People should realise that they are beautiful the way they are but you have the right to do whatever you want with yourself. You do you boo!!!

There is one more thing I have thought about. Do we really need it? In fact, I personally use social media often. I text my friends and family, post on my stories and more. I think it is very useful, however I CERTAINLY believe that people around the world could use it less. Why not have face to face conversations?

So that’s it for today guys. This was a different kind if post and it was quite lengthly. This was based on my own opinion so please don’t be offended or upset by anything I have said. What do you think about social media? Comment or contact me with your thoughts on my contact page. 

AU REVOIR!

Did you miss me?

Hey guys!! It’s KK! I’m back! It has been so long since I have posted on my blog. As you would have already realised, I have changed the theme of my blog. I thought it needed an update. I am now 11 years old and am in Year 6. If you live in the UK, you would know that in may, Year 6 do their SATs. They are tests you take to see how much you have learned and tell your new secondary school where you are at. This means that I will be extremely busy.

 Oh! I also forgot to say Happy New Year! 🥳 Welcome to 2019! One of my New Years resolutions was to post on my blog more often. One thing I have been doing is posting a bit more on my instagram. If you would like to check it out its @kreativekenza or if you don’t have an account there should be a button either on the side of my posts or at the very bottom.( it depends on what device you are on ). There is also a widget for my Pinterest. If you look at my instagram feed, you wold see that I have started a bullet journal. It is a journal the you draw and write in. You can be very kreative ( see what I did there ) and you may have a monthly theme . For January, I decided to go with fireworks. I get my inspiration from a YouTuber called Amandarachlee. Her videos are really awesome you should go check them out.

If you read my last post, you would have seen that I had started my Five weeks of food… and I didn’t finish it. It’s was my second attempt and yet again I failed.🙁 Anyway, I won’t be attempting that again but if you have any other ideas let me know by commenting or contacting me. If this post is dragging on I’m sorry.

Also, I would like to mention is that I have reached over 900 hits!! I would literally scream if I get 1000 hits. It really cool to see that loads of people from the world have checked out my blog. That means that I have a diverse, multi-cultural audience.

Another thing, is that this year I have been elected for school council. I am one of three people from my class. Every Friday, have a meeting with the rest of school council from the other years and we discuss the thing on our agenda. This is my second time being school council. I was elected in Year 4. Since we are on the topic of school, I thought I should mention that we have already been on our annual theatre trip. From Year 3 upwards, our school goes to the Royal Theatre in Stratford to watch a pantomime. This year, we watched a modern retelling of Sleeping beauty. It was kind of bittersweet for me as it will be my last pantomime with my class. I will not write everything that happened in the pantomime ,however I will consider doing that for my next post.

Well I think that I have written enough for today. It was really nice to sit down once again and type up my post.

So that’s it for today! AU REVOIR

P.S. Shout out to my friend Eliza who encouraged me to write a new post.

Exciting Re-announcement

Hey guys! What’s up it’s, KK. As, you can see by the title of this post, today I am going to announce something VERY exciting, however I have already announced this. Like I promised in my last post, I will be redoing 5 weeks of food. Basically, how it will work is for 5 weeks (every Wednesday) I will write a recipe for food whether it’s a meal, a dessert or a snack! I’m guessing a lot of you guys who are reading this are wondering ` why is she doing this? ` well the reason is that I know there are a lot of foodies out there and it would be a great hit!

So now for the details. 5 Weeks of Food will take place from 30th May- 27th June. If you would like to suggest anything, just go to my contacts page and fill out the form. But remember, don’t tell me how to make it since I will look it up. I hope this post wasn’t too boring and keep in mind to check my blog to see if your ideas were used!

So that’s it for today! AU REVOIR!

P.S. Shout out to my friend Blanca for become a new follower of my blog!
