I PRESENT TO YOU MY EMAIL LIST!

Screen Shot 2019-10-06 at 6.10.17 PM.png

 

SUBSCRIBE!!!!

On the email list there’s going to be all the following!

  • A weekly email (obviously) every Monday!
  • The email will contain: me reviewing/recommending/raving/ranting over books to you guys that I’ve recently read or am currently reading, an awesome inspirational quote designed by me at the beginning, and news about my life. 
  • And the freebie is..!: DING-DING-DING!!! Desktop backgrounds!!!! Course, not just any old random desktop backgrounds! They’re backgrounds designed by me, AND the backgrounds have writing, reading, OR inspirational/motivational quotes on them! There’s 10 in all, and I am currently LOVING my desktop right now!
  • And finally…the whole entire email list will be about…LOTS OF FUN!!!

(Fun fact, the first time I was creating the graphic I was listing off things that would be included in the email list, and I had said, “drawings, my life, and much more!” I had always suspected that something was grammatically wrong with that sentence, and FINALLY it occurred to me that, no, I was not giving away my entire life for free on an email list XDDD)

 

Hit of the Piñata #2

Okay guys, I just had add this in as well! 

Sooo….SURPRISE! I’ve updated all my pages!!!!

anigif_enhanced-buzz-23469-1435276061-5.gif

Basically this means that on my homepage that small ‘about me’ thing that introduces myself is COMPLETELY updated, my ‘About Me, Myself, and I‘ page is 100000% re-done, a few words were changed on my ‘Contact‘ anddddd ‘Awesome Stuff About My Books‘ was updated and refurbished so that it’s not as messy as it was before, and now has a few more neat things about my book!

And….I CAME OUT WITH A NEW PAGE!

giphy

Someone SUPER awesome requested on my survey that I should have a spot on my blog where I have some of your favorite books for people to check out, which I thought was an awesome idea, so thank you so much to whoever requested that! (I don’t believe there was a name, but you know who you are!)

Go check out here my newest page: 

Awesomest Books Ever

 

ALSO, (although small) I’ve updated all pictures of myself, which a few of you might have already noticed by now. 

 

Blow to the Piñata #3

Yeeeeahhh, this one wasn’t worthy of being a hit, it was a BLOW.

I was innocently *TAKE NOTE OF THE INNOCENCE* writing this very blog post when I clicked off to check on something else and accidentally ended up clicking on WordPress themes. 

I looovveee looking at themes and graphics and such, so I shrugged and ooooooHhHHHhHHh, look! There’s some new themes! 

INNOCENTLY, guys, INNOCENTLY, I click on one theme, click on the button where there was supposed to be a customize button……………….well.

I sure did click on that button. 

That traitorous button

giphy.gif

SO APPARENTLY, it instantly changed my ENTIRE THEME THAT I’VE BEEN USING FOR AN ENTIRE YEAR!!!!

I freaked out, and madly searched through the themes…only to realize…the theme I was using was….

Gone.

source

WELL, WordPress wanted to be just soooooo amazing, and decided to boot out old themes and throw in, like, four new ones. 

SO, WHAT? WITH TWO CLICKS MY THEME THAT I’VE BEEN USING FOR A WHOLE YEAR IS KAPOOT?????

original.gif

Apparently so….

Sooooo…I went through every theme. 

Yes, literally EVERY. THEME.

HandsomeFakeGopher-small

I came upon  one which I believe is the updated version of my old theme??? It looks fairly similar to the one I had besides my logo being sadly a LOT smaller, and also it’s harder for my featured image to show up properly (so sorry if I have to use different images for my featured image and my graphic, now you know why…) Anywho, I sucked up the pain…

giphy-3.gif

…and just basically I’m trying to embrace the new, and go along with this whole thing! not like I can go back even if I wanted to...

Anywho, to those of you who read my blog posts on my blog, thatttt…kinda explains the changes. 

To those of you who read my posts on WordPress reader, go check out the new blog! I dearly hope you like it haha

I mean, this sucks to the fullest…but I better make the most of it! 

 

Final Hit of the Pinata:

Sooooo…..hi?????

I *coughs* kinda quit last week *shaky laughs*

I was working an insane amount of of time on this blog post-figuring out all the links to this email list and automated emails and designing things and ahhhhhhh it was SO much…

It was too much, actually. 

I couldn’t even post on Monday, no matter how much I had wanted too, it just couldn’t work because I hadn’t realized how much work I needed to do to get this email list up and running. 

So, yes, that’s number one: Sorry for taking last week off

I had to kind of close down the site because I was making SO many changes (the theme did NOT help my case with running around doing this email list, lemme tell you that.) so I threw it up on Private, so sorry to any of you who wanted to go onto my blog and couldn’t and I’m so sorry I didn’t approve any requests to view my blog because I just wanted to save all of this as a surprise for today, you know?

And…here’s the big thing: After scaring you guys half to death about me disappearing last week (*raises eyebrow* I should certainly hope you guys noticed I was gone…?)

I’m going on hiatus. 

*cues screaming and shattering of cups and everyone’s running around crying and sobbing because I’m going-

So most of the time hiatus’s are when bloggers make deep heartfelt speeches about how blogging is too much for them…

…well I’m not gunna do that, ’cause…well first off I didn’t prepare a speech, and second blogging is not too much for me. 

This hiatus is far from me me quitting.

Sooo why the cause for this sudden going away party???

Basically; one word: SCHOOL.

I’m going into grade 9 that sounds wayyyy tooooo olllddddd and I’m going to be using all of September to get back into the flow of mounds of school-work piled on myself. Sooo…I’ll be taking 5 weeks off. (But don’t trust my math. It’s summer…I can’t do math in summer, my brain refuses to.) Uhm…let’s just be safe and say: all of September.

I wish I didn’t have to, because taking a break like this will be a serious decrease in the growth of my blog, and it’s going to pain me a lot to take a break from it. 

But don’t worry! I’m hoping to use this break well; I aim to write enough blog posts during September that I’ll be able to have enough ready for all of October. Also, I will be around the blogosphere, although of course not as much because school is basically all day until dinner. (Mwhahahha, you can’t escape me that easily…) so I’ll be around as much as I can!

So, in conclusion, I won’t be blogging for the next few weeks, BUT all those amazing people who decide to sign up for my email list will be getting their first email the first Monday of October. *grins broadly*

 

*pauses*

*looks up*

*clears throat*

 

Oh my.

I do believe that was equivalent to a speech of some sort. 

….what have I done.

The moral of the story is: Writing blog posts are dangerous.

And clicking buttons. 

Sooo…*coughs* look before you click. 

 

 

Okaokayokayyyy!!!!!! I gotta go run off and party now! *bolts off screen and you totally hear the cliche crashing and glass shattering and the cat meowing and-*

 

*Passes out your favorite kind of cake to you* Eek!! I hope you guys enjoyed the party!!!

Are you guys excited for my email list!? Are you going to sign up for it!?

What do you guys think of the new blog theme? Did you check out my newly updated pages?

(P.S. The 18th was my older sister’s, Julia’s, birthday! Go visit her blog and leave a few likes and comments and make her day and be a special awesome person to surprise her by telling her happy birthday!)

 

I hope you enjoyed this post! If you have any questions or thoughts, leave a comment down below.

Thanks for reading!

Mary

  1. I just was sitting there and watching the one GIF of the little girl screaming at her iPad over and over. 😂 Congratulations on your 1-year blogiversary! That’s a great milestone! 😃

  2. LOL! I know I’m waaaaayyyy too late. Like really, REALLY late, but I was randomly looking around your blog and stumbled upon this post and, well let’s just say it’s the funniest thing I’ve read all day. 🤣🤣🤣🤣 But…um…is the theme you’re using now the same one you ended up changing it to in the post, or did you change it again? (No idea why this is THAT important to me.)

    It’s AMAZING how long you’ve been blogging!!! I’m still new to a lot of different things with the blogosphere. Although, is is just me, or does blogs and comments completely change you? ‘Cause now it’s like I have to reply or like every single comment I read on OTHER PEOPLE’S SITES!!!!! Is it just me? Yeah, it’s probably just me. I think I’m getting crazier by the day. Really, my latest blog post was just waaaayyyy to insane, even for me. 😂 (And that’s seriously saying something.) Anyway, I have no idea why I’m typing up this long, random comment. I think I’m just trying to avoid all the writing I need to get working on. (Serious procrastinator over here.) Well, I’m just gonna stop this comment, before I bug you. 😉

    1. LOL hi! Thanks for looking around 😆 Some of these posts are SUPER cringey, so beware when looking, but there might be some good content hidden…somewhere…under mounds of cringeiness..
      ANYWAY, I’m so glad it was funny!! Also yeah I’m still using the theme I accidentally threw myself into.
      ……..I still don’t like it to this day 😂

      Thanks!! Ikr I feel so old…Yeah, there’s always so much to learn! Man, they DO! Oh my gosh, I know right!!! (also I wholeheartedly agree, I get crazier by the day too).
      Hahaha I love long comments, they’re the best. Hehe, feel free to procrastinate on my blog (until maybe one of my posts inspires you, because that’s cool too 😆).
