So I totally had a serious post planned for today. I’ve been receiving a fair few emails and questions regarding blog growth, monetisation etc and was intending on tackling that today.
However, over the weekend my friend linked me to this gem of a BuzzFeed piece titled ‘The “New York” On A Bed Meme Is The Only Meme You Need This Summer.’
After giggling like a two year old, sharing it all over Facebook and giggling like a two year old again, I realised so many other situations which deserved that meme- Especially in my personal life and recent events in New York City.
So friends, let’s rephrase that.
The ‘Arman in New York’ on a couch Meme is the only Meme you need this Summer.
