So, I decided to participate in a challenge called Blog Ahead 2015, the purpose of which is to build your list of scheduled blog posts. The challenge comes from Herding Cats and Burning Soup and the goal is the following (text taken from the aforementioned site): The Goal Build your total number of scheduled posts by 31! On October 1st Continue reading The Blog Ahead Challenge 2015!
The other day, my friend Grace tagged me in a blog hop (thank you, Grace!). On closer inspection, I realized that it’s actually a Liebster award blog hop. Since I’ve done the Liebster twice before, once here and once on my Sims 2 blog, I figure I’m gonna skip the nomination bit and just answer the questions: Is this the real Continue reading Little Liebster Hop!
I was recently nominated for the Liebster Award by Paola Crespo, one of my writing Tweeps! Thank you, Paola! So what’s the Liebster Award? Well, it’s more of a sort of blog hop that you pass along to up-and-coming bloggers who perhaps don’t have a lot of followers yet. The rules are as follows: 1. Thank the blogger who nominated Continue reading The Liebster Award! I nominate… You!
So it’s here, the last ThinkKit prompt of the year. I was too sleepy to write it last night after staying up to watch the fireworks and have a delicious dinner with my parents and my bf, so I’m doing it now instead. The prompt, to my delight, was to show something about your past, present and future through… haikus! If Continue reading Five, Seven, Five – ThinkKit Prompt #31
Today’s ThinkKit prompt, the second to last of the year, is to try and find a word with which to sum up your year. Well, I’ve got a word for you: milestones. This year, I published my first book. My boyfriend moved here from Canada. I finally finished a course that’s been tormenting me for a couple of years. And I Continue reading A Single Word – ThinkKit Prompt #30
Today’s ThinkKit prompt is to write about something you can do to support a goal you have for 2015. One of the more specific prompts of the month, I think. Now, I’m not gonna talk about my goals for 2015 since I already blogged about those a few days ago. So instead I’m gonna tell you guys that I signed up on Continue reading One Small Step – ThinkKit Prompt #28
Two ThinkKit prompts in one day today, again. I had actually planned to post yesterday but I ended up going to a late of The Hobbit: The Battle of the Five Armies and when I got back home I was just too sleepy to put the computer on. Yesterday’s prompt was to write about a place that stood out for you in Continue reading Goin’ Places/Show and Tell – ThinkKit Prompt #26 and #27
I was planning to make this a double post, ThinkKit prompt #24 and #25. #25 was to share a photo of a tradition from the past year. I was planning to take a photo of our Christmas Day board game session earlier today but I totally forgot, so I’ll have to stick to #24, which is to talk about what one Continue reading A Dash of Thanks – ThinkKit Prompt #25
Today’s ThinkKit prompt is a free choice (Chef’s choice, as the email said) and since I’ve been thinking lately that I should post about my plans for 2015 on the blog I thought I’d make a “two birds, one stone” thing of it. I’ve been seeing a lot of posts about plans for next year on the blogs of my fellow Continue reading Writing Plans for 2015 (A.k.a. ThinkKit Prompt #22)
Yesterday’s ThinkKit prompt was skipped because I was at a wedding and got home late, but today’s is to write about something that surprised you this year (hence the somewhat suggestive title). Well, a lot of things has surprised me this year, like most years. How much better I sleep with the window open has surprised me. How many socks one Continue reading Ooh! Aaah! – ThinkKit Prompt #21
