Give me 10 minutes of your day.

10 minutes. Just 1/144 of your day. Tell me about you. I want to hear your stories, worries, fears, what you had for breakfast.
I want to know things. It seems strange, and it seems slightly creepy- but surely it is human to be curious? Is it not okay to treat other people as equal to me? This isn’t a one-sided thing; I don’t want to sit here and write about my life while strangers come and go, dipping in and out. I want the people who read my blog to be more than just the audience. I want them to take part in the show.
So take 600 seconds and write me a story. Anything. Your hair colour. Your gender, sexuality, ethnicity, religion. Your favourite band. Comment on here, or if you’re feeling adventurous, head over to my Instagram or Twitter and send me a few words.
I promise, it will only take 10 minutes;)

  1. “Schmelted” … What an interesting post. It’s interesting that you seem genuinely interested in your reader. That is, for the Internet, quite refreshing. I commend you, my friend.

  2. I am just me! Is there more to it than that? I love a variety of things, and think that diversity is the spice to life! I think that it is great that everyone is different, and yet… at the heart we are all the same. I am full of idiosyncrasy and oxymoronic thoughts. I hate being labeled and frequently live outside the box… I am a paradox!

  3. My name’s Elm, and my story isn’t the most interesting. I’m 15, come from the UK, have olive skin, am bisexual, have a good home life. It’s not the kind of thing people WANT to read, and I know that. But I want to write it, because I’m more than just my physical appearance. I’m more than just a couple of labels, that people judge me on and say I’m “fortunate”. The thing that makes them say ‘Oh NO! Your life must be awful!’ is the fact that I’m blind. That’s completely wrong, because I don’t think it’s made my life any more difficult. I’ve got a good life when it comes to materialistic things, but sometimes I feel awful about myself. You can’t show that often, though, though I do try. That’s my motto: I always try.

      • It’s great to be curious! 🙂 Well, I have a thing called a braillenote which is basically a computer without a screen. And then I have a phone (iPhone) with Voiceover, and both can access the internet. Because the BN’s internet access isn’t as good (and also because I’m lazy) I connect the BN to the phone and use the wordpress app 😀
        Thank you! Elm isn’t my real name, but I do love it.

  4. I love this post.
    I’ve just finished my one year placement and have almost 2 months before I start my graduate job. So I’m his enjoying being free.
    It’s weird when I read your post I really wanted to contribute – to spend my 10 mins here. But now I’m not so sure how to summarise myself into 10 minutes. Well, I’m brown, I’m a Londoner, I’m Muslim, I’m a women. Strange how in introducing myself I think of all the labels people give me or I give myself.
    I’d like to say I’m friendly, outgoing, brave. But I don’t know – those night things I am on the outside. What I feel inside changes often.

    • I like this. It’s strange hearing people describe themselves with the labels given to them by other people, because although they may stay the same all through our lives, the person we are can vary.

  5. I loved this post, especially going through the comments. It was refreshing to find someone who’s genuinely interested in other people’s stories. It’s a quite a commendable trait to have, especially at 15 (not many adults can say the same).

    My story – I’m 23 and eldest of three daughters. I’ve recently started a blog to discover my writing voice and I dream of one day travelling the world.

    What yours?
