Blogspiration (1)

Blogspiration is a weekly meme hosted by GrowingUp YA & saz101. The meme was created to help spark inspiration among bloggers, readers & writers alike. An inspirational quote/picture/video is posted weekly, on the day of the author's choosing, so that it may inspire creativity, conversation & just a little SOMETHING.
Okay... is anyone really surprised that my post is a Hufflepuff-centric one? I haven't really made it a secret that I am a Hufflepuff and I'm immensely proud of my house.

I feel like Hufflepuff gets overlooked. We're accepting and will take people of all types, so I guess people take that to mean that Hufflepuffs are the "leftovers" and the "losers." So not true.

I have always wanted to be a Hufflepuff because their qualities are the ones I value most: kindness, loyalty and compassion. Okay, sure, it's great to be brave and smart and ambitious. If that's what's the most important to you, I'm certainly not against it!

For me, being a Hufflepuff has always meant putting kindness first. It means that being an understanding, non-judgemental person is more important than being an intelligent one. It means that you stick by what you believe in, even if you're made fun of for it. I'm hard-working. I'm fair. I'm tolerant. I'm a particularly good finder! (haha, no I'm not actually... but forget that)

So that is why I proudly wave my Hufflepuff banner. BADGER PRIDE!


  1. Woohhooo! Fellow hufflepuff here.


    Oh, seriously, I LOVE that it's Hufflepuff-centric, and I love that you're a proud Hufflepuff, because, I mean, what's not to love? Hufflepuffs personify everything that makes a fantastic human being. Friendly, kind, accepting and loyal. Compassionate. Who WOULDN'T be a Hufflepuff?

  3. haha God, I needed to google it to find out what you've meant :P :P And now that I know, I completely agree with you :) It nice to see that there are some people left in the world who values such things :) :) I like that! Thanks for sharing this! Great blogspiration :) ;)

  4. Awesome blogspiration post! You gotta love the Hufflepuffs!

  5. I just love this post! Something happened to me today that this just fits perfectly with. It made me laugh. Thank you.

  6. PUFFLEHUFF!!! Okay, so I lovelovelove your post and your badger pride SHINES through <3

    I always considered myself a Hufflepuff and was convinced that if (when) I went to Hogwarts, that's where the sorting hat would place me. Because contrary to what most think, it's COOL! But then Pottermore sorted me into Ravenclaw and at first I thought... oh. But when I read the welcome message, my gosh, I fell in love with my new blue and bronze heart. So while I am apparently a true Ravenclaw and love it, my heart will always have a soft spot for Hufflepuff <3

    I hate reality sometimes. I want to go to goddamn Hogwarts. So. Bad :(

  7. Awesome post! I love the Hufflepuff badger :). I'm with Brodie here - WHY ISN'T HOGWARTS REAL?

  8. AAAAAHHHHH!!!! The underdog is finally coming out to play!!

    I can't explain how much I love that this is a Hufflepuff Blogspiration post :D It's so great that you're proud of your house. And seriously? It's times like these that I wish magic were real...

  9. :0 Its great that you are a tenacious hufflepuff. My sister is also a Hufflepuff and one of the best people I know!

    I think Hufflepuff is a great house of empathetic people.
