Check out the new blog!

Hi guys!

So I am now a writer for another blog which I talked about a couple posts back. It’s called The Pen of the Peculiar.

It’s written by me, Grace, Brea, Aislinn and Haileigh. I have mentioned Grace a lot on my blog since she nominates me for a lot of blogging challenges, but you’ll get to know everyone else on The Pen of the Peculiar.

KEEP IN MIND that at the time this article is posted, The Pen of the Peculiar is still a NEW BLOG. There is not a lot going on with it yet, but hopefully, you will see a lot of cool updates on it πŸ™‚ For example, we’re working on a “Writers” page, so you can get to know all of our EPIC writers!

I hope you guys take the time to check out the blog and give it a follow, so you can keep up with all the cool posts and updates.

Also, I have about fifteen followers on MMM now and I just wanted to thank you guys. It’s really awesome to know that people are reading my posts and I hope you guys enjoy them.

Tell me in the comments what kind of posts you want to see on my blog, or comment what posts of mine you enjoy reading. πŸ™‚

As always, thanks for reading guys!

Hi guys!

Thank you so much Grace for nominating me! I absolutely love these challenges! Go check out Grace’s blog, she is a fantastic writer and has great posts!

Alright, let’s get to the……

RULES (Every child’s FAVORITE part of anything :P):

  1. Thank the person that nominated you and link their blog. (Check and check)
  2. Write a post to show the award. Attach the logo to your post. (Checkedy, check check check!)
  3. Give a brief story of how your blog started (Doing it RIGHT now :)). At the beginning of this school year, I signed up for FLVS (Florida Virtual School). I soon joined the newspaper club (check niac.flvs.net for some super awesome student-written articles) and one of my new NIAC friends said that we should start a WordPress blog. She set it up and I found out about WordPress as a blog host and here we are! I now have my own blog! πŸ™‚ (pretty brief story! :P)
  4. Give a piece of advice to new bloggers. I think I would just say, post as often as you can. I don’t post too much anymore, but I noticed that the more I post, the more people see my blog. So if you WANT people to see your blog, post like CRAZY (although I suggesting not posting TOO many a day, just so people won’t be constantly searching through pages and pages and pages of your new posts). Also, be yourself. Be nice. Don’t hurt anyone. Cyber-bullying can be painful; sometimes it could even hurt more than real bullying. ALWAYS be nice. On and offline.
  5. Select 10 other blogs to give the award to… Okay, this is why I ask you guys to comment. I don’t know any blogs (except for Grace’s blog and FLVS Scribbles) and I want to know you guys! I want to talk to the people who read my posts! YOU! yeah you! Stop reading this right now, and comment down below. Say hi. Give me the chance to check out your blog. We could be good buddies! I nominate my pal who got me on WordPress, Brea on our blog “The Pegaelf”. Β And once it opens up, I nominate Aislinn and Haileigh who are to write for our new up and coming blog. πŸ™‚ I also nominate every single person reading this. If you read that last sentence, you’re nominated. Just follow the rules and post it on the blog. Comment the link to the post below so I can read it πŸ™‚

Thank you guys for reading and COMMENT, COMMENT, COMMENT. I want to see more blogs! I want some more good reads! I want to talk to you guys!! πŸ˜€

Thanks for reading guys and enjoy the rest of your weekend!

New idea… Cyber-pet Weekly!

Hi guys!

So I think I’m going to try this new thing, where every week, I have a new cyber-pet for you to see! I’m going to use this website called Bunnyhero Labs. I am going to create a pet each week and give it a name, personality and stuff like that. A little character creation for you guys πŸ™‚

Here is the first one (sorry for the bad photo quality):


 

Prickly the Hedgehog

Untitled

Name: Prickly

Age group: Baby

Favorite snack: Strawberries

Likes to: Follow me around

Prickly is a sweet hedgehog who just wants to cuddle (how unfortunate…) and he really enjoys eating strawberries. He doesn’t like hedgehog stereotypes (like the whole “hedgehogs are part of the pig family” thing) but he does enjoy playing Sonic on the PlayStation.


There you have it! First pet of the week! Again, sorry for the bad quality. I may not always do this on Thursdays, I just happened to start it today. And I may do two pets of the week, there’s no rules! Hopefully you’ll see the next pet soon!

Comment down below if you’ve used Bunnyhero Labs pets or if you liked this/want to see more of it!

Thanks for reading!

New blog? You could be a part of it!

Hi guys!

I got this WONDERFUL idea from this blog called Girls Writing for Gods Glory. I think I’m going to start another blog, but it will be a group blog. I will have a bunch of writers that can post whenever they want. I’m not sure exactly what the posts will be about (like if they’ll just be about writing or if I’ll allow other stuff), but there will probably be some short stories or poems.

The great thing is, you could be a part of it! If you’re a reader, writer, actor, or stuff like that, you can be on the blog.

You can share your experiences about the jobs you’ve been in, or your favorite books, or even what your favorite color is and why! It would be all about the experiences you had, and how you want to share them with others!!

Again, this is just an idea. I will MOST LIKELY do it, but I need enough writers.

I like this idea because lots of times I don’t post frequently on my blog, and having a group of writers on one blog will probably add more posts at once.

If you want to be a part of the blog, comment down below, and I will answer you ASAP with how you could be a part of the blog (which I really hope will happen!).

Gotta go set up the new blog idea! Hope it will work out!

Thanks for reading guys!

The Liebster Award

Hi guys!

I am excited to do this challenge!! πŸ™‚ Thanks averagemads from The Trifling Vagrant for nominating me!

I am going to answer these questions:

Do you wish you had started your blog differently?

Umm… No. I am happy with the way I started it. Any mistakes I made were because I was a beginner, I still am.

 

Favorite thing you last heard?

Like, song-wise? If so, then probably…. hmm…. Better Than Revenge by Taylor Swift. I got her album for Christmas and I listen to it every night. It’s a really pumped up song.

 

One word to describe your online life?

Kind-of-sort-of-different-from-my-regular-life-except-not-really-except-kind-of. No, but really, I would probably say “Confident”. Because I’m pretty shy when I have to face IRL, but online it’s easier for me to express myself in a less shy way.

 

Do you think of yourself as an optimist or pessimist?

Everyone wishes they were a complete optimist, but I think I’m half and half. It depends on the situation. I’m an optimist in good situations and a pessimist in others. If I had a full glass of water and had half of it, I might say it was half empty. If I only filled it up halfway, I would probably say it was half full. So, both.

 

A physical attribute you notice first in others?

O.M.G. I don’t know! If it were NON-physical I would probably say kindness. Umm… I cannot answer this question, I apologize. I don’t really notice anything to start with. I see someone, and that’s it. I don’t focus on what I might focus on first (does that make sense)?

 

Camping or napping?

Umm… I’ve never been camping, but as a Florida girl, I don’t really like the outdoors (heat and bugs, blegh), so napping (even though I just CANNOT nap, like I literally can’t do it. I don’t know why…).

 

Stars in the sky or Christmas lights in your room?

Christmas lights in my room would be EPIC!! πŸ˜€

 

Favorite quality in others’ writings?

Oh, umm…. I like a lot of things in writings. I think what I like most is when it’s relaxed and friendly.

 

Something you despise?

When people are rude or mean to people who haven’t done anything. Or when people think they’re better than others.

 

One thing you wish you wrote more about?

In blogging, books I’m reading/love and stuff like that. In stories, anything that interests me.

 

Okay, I don’t know too many blogs, so I nominate everyone reading this, but there is one person who I would like to see do one of these challenges.

Mrs. Emery from the Creative Writing Club. Mrs. Emery, I challenge you to answer the following questions and post them on the FLVS Scribbles blog!

  1. What is your favorite book and why?
  2. What is one of your biggest pet peeves?
  3. What is/was your favorite subject in school?
  4. If you had to pick between narwhals and unicorns, which would you pick (choose wisely)?
  5. Do you do any performing arts?
  6. Who is your biggest inspiration in anything?
  7. Star Wars or Star Trek?
  8. Coffee or Tea?
  9. Has any of your work ever been published?
  10. Do you have any pets?

I hope to see your responses Mrs. Emery and everyone else reading! πŸ˜‰

Thanks for reading guys!
