Hey. I’m Francesca. I’m a writer (you might know me from The Princess and the Dragon and Other Stories About Unlikely Heroes), I swear a lot and I still haven’t recovered from the end reunion of My Chemical Romance.

Indifferent Ignorance started in 2009 when I was a pissy 14-year-old and thought it would be fun to make a blog about people’s indifferent ignorance (yes, it was me who added that to Urban Dictionary).

If you’ve found me via a weird and clever piece of stationery, perhaps purchased from Etsy or Folksy, then, hi, welcome to hell. You can learn more about my books and stationery on my slightly-sweary cool-shit-I-make website.

Occasionally Asked Questions

Do you do sponsored posts? No. I don’t do affiliate linking either, except for Bookshop. But if you’re an indie blogger, writer or artist and you’ve made a book/zine/CD/sculpture made from elastic bands, or if you’re a publicist associated with a blogger/writer/artist, MAIL ME IMMEDIATELY at indifferentignorance@hotmail.co.uk and we can be indie bloggers/writers/ artists together! I will always say when I’ve been sent something to review and I am honest to the point of being a horrible person, so impartiality is assured.

Do you want to support this page and/or enjoy exclusive access to stories and chatter from me? Join the No. 1 Reader’s Club on Patreon! Or we could just get coffee?

How come you’re a reasonably well-informed civil rights advocate in your recent posts but occasionally I find things like this? I wasn’t always this well-informed. Plus I was 14 when I started writing here, and – no disrespect to 14-year-olds – my world view hadn’t finished cooking (I’ll let you know when it does but spoiler alert it will be when I’m dead).

Why do your older posts’ images not contain credits or links to the original source? Aged 14 I was not aware of the manners surrounding copyright. I couldn’t find the original images if I tried now, so if you have a source, let me know and I’ll update the post.

  1. A little bit rude????

    Frank, your probably the most outright, rudest person i know!! (in a good way 🙂 )

    you need to change that to say yes i am a rude person, and yes i speak my mind. And i tell people to their faces. etc.

    THAT would be more truthful!
    And just coz im allowed to say this- LOTS OF EMPHASIS ON THE SHORT SIDE!!!!


    Bel x 🙂

    P.s got new just dance 🙂


    1. I think saying ‘You will hate me because I tell you what I think of you,” might get me even less hits than I do at the moment, somehow…




    1. Here’s how it goes, on here anyway:

      I write politically incorrect, funny rants on various topics a few times a week. You subscribe to this blog, using the sidebar, and get an email every time I post something.

      Then, unlike your daughter, you visit the actual website by clicking on the blog heading on the email, read what I have to say and comment with your opinion on my opinion. Comprende?

      Oh, ‘blog’ is short for ‘weblog’ and is a sort of online diary.

      Except this is nothing like my actual diary… People have my permission to read this.



  2. Ermm…..I’ll sign it, if I can see it.

    (This comment is now up for verification, don’t say I didn’t send it if YOU can’t see it.)


    Love, Pugsley.
