A Ruthless Rant

I like to voice my opinion. Take it or leave it, I don’t really mind.

This section is for all my ranty style posts, a topic I want to write about each week with my diary updates at the bottom.

My style of blogging has changed over time and some reviews are within bigger posts and include items on other topics.
