Celebrating My 3 Year Blogiversary! (+ All Your Writing Questions Answered!!!)

GUYS. 

IT’S BEEN 3 YEARS SINCE WILD WRITING DREAMS WAS BORN.

Let’s get this party starrrrtteeeeeddd!Screen Shot 2019-02-10 at 2.39.03 PM

*slams spoon against glass and everyone screams because their ears hurt* “AaaaaaaHHHHHEMMmmm,” I clear my throat. “I’m about to say a few words about Wild Writing Dreams.”

Nah I’m just kidding, I’ll spare all your ears this time ’cause a speech is boring.

What I’m REALLY doing today is saying, HI, I’M ALIVE.

Did I spend more than “a few weeks” away from this blog? Yes, yes I did.

Am I officially back from my break? Weeeelllll, not exactly. But more on that later! Because I’M CELEBRATING MY 3 YEAR BLOGIVERSARY!

Today I didn’t want to JUST post about my blogiversary, though. I also wanted to address why I’ve been taking so long to come back to blogging.

*dramatic music starts playing and I clear my throat and with tears in my eyes I give that speech I really was not supposed to give* Today isn’t just about celebrating three whole years on Wild Writing Dreams *cue dramatic sniff from me with violins playing in the background* It’s also a day marking a half-way point for me as a writer this year. And at this halfway point….IIIiiiii don’t have much inspiration. *music screeches to a halt*

Sooo I’m coming back here on the blog today to ask for some help from YOU. And it’s going to be awesome for you as well.

I find that the one thing that inspires me the most when blogging is the fact that I can help you guys! And my favorite way to do that is, obviously, through writing advice. So I’m here today to ask if you can help me out by answering one question for me:

  • What have you always wanted to know/struggled with when it comes to writing?

You can let me know in the comments down below, OR you can just type it into the survey down below! And the best part is: you can submit MULTIPLE problems/questions you’ve had about writing. How ever many you want!

And don’t feel pressured to submit them all in one go – feel free to come back and write up more things you want to learn about later!

Click to Submit Some Answers!

Now, why would you want to do all this?

Because:

  1. Writing problems/questions you’ve wondered about or had trouble with will be answered…
  2. …because I’m writing a literal post on Wild Writing Dreams ANSWERING YOUR QUESTIONS AND PROBLEMS!!!
  3. And if you have a blog I will link to it with your name for others to check out and enjoy!

*Unfortunately I cannot edit the survey to make it more clear, but for Question #2 you can tell me both the name of your blog and link to it, or just link to it. Whichever you prefer!

What do I mean about “not exactly” being back from my elongated break? I mean that I still need some more time to flesh out the posts I have, plus I really want to spend a lot of time delving into your guys’s questions. 

When will I come back, you might ask?

good-question

Maybe beginning of September. And if not, for sure in October. (In which case, I would probably publish at least ONE post in September, ’cause how can I not!)

*Also, if any of you noticed I took down some pages from my blog *cue everyone just noticing right now* it’s ’cause I had some people stealing some of my stuff and putting it on Pinterest. So I sadly had to shut down my “About My Book” page. The other one I just sorta deleted along with it…In any case, I’m hoping to open up another “About My Book” page sometime in the near future!

Alrighty, tally-ho my friends! I can’t wait to hear what you’ve always wanted to learn about when it comes to writing!

What’s up with you guys lately!? It’s been so long!

Also, fun fact, my real blogiversary date is actually tomorrow hehehehe…

  1. Nice to see you again. I’ve returned from my holiday, and I hoped to get some inpiration being out in the nature, but I focused on the hike while out and was too tired to let my imagination run wild after (I guess walking 25km/day does that). But I had two or three small ideas, and two more since my return, so at least something…

  3. AHHHH congrats, Mary!!!!! I’m so glad you’re *sort of* back! 😂🎉 I hope your hiatus was awesomeeeeee!!
    And wait. How dare someone steal your ideas! 😠😠 That is HORRIBLE – why do we have to deal with quite so many copiers? Probably because our work is awesome – but seriously, they need to stop. 🙁

  5. WHOO-HOOOOO!!!!!! HAPPY 3 YEARS OF BLOGGING, GIRL!!!!! *throws confetti and gives you cake and ice cream* I hope you had an AWESOME hiatus, but, of course, I’ve sorely missed your posts and am SO EXCITED you’ll be back to a regular blogging schedule soon!!!!

    *GASPS* OooOoooh, I CAN’T WAIT to submit some questions!!!! I’ll try to submit some now, but knowing me, I’ll completely forget everything I’ve needed help on in writing and have to come back later once I remember them…XD

    *GASPS AGAIN* WHAAAAT?!?!?! People have been copying your work!?!?! *huffs and crosses arms* Man, that is so lame! I mean, I guess you could take it as a compliment, but they could at least give ya some credit. 😦 Too bad there isn’t some kind of Blogging Police who can take care of that. XD

    BUT ANYWAY, again it is SOOOOO good to have you back (or at least, *kinda* back right now) 😉 and I hope you have MANY MANY MORE amaaaaazing blogging years ahead!!!!! 😀 ❤

    1. WOOOOHOOOOOO, THANK YOU VICTORIA!! *dances in confetti and stuffs cake and ice cream into mouth* Thank you! And aww thanks I really appreciate that!!

      *GASPS WITH YOU* AHHH I CAN’T WAIT TO SEE THEM! Ahahaha, that is SO ME. But honestly I wouldn’t mind at all if you ended up submitting like five different things 😂

      *GASPS AGAIN WITH YOU* I KNOW RIGHT!? Super lame! LOL, that’s what I thought at first, like: I think I’d usually be honored…but like they’re /stealing/ from me…😂 Gah, yes, that would be SO helpful. I just happened to stumble across it – totally pure coincidence – and if I hadn’t I never would have known…so, yes, Blogging Police would’ve been very helpful 😆

      AWW THANK YOU SO MUCH VICTORIA FOR THIS AMAZING COMMENT!!! ☺️

  6. Hello Mary! I’m not here to submit a question I’m here to congratulate you on having this blog for THREE LONG YEARS!! I’m a new blogger myself and it’s hard to imagine my blog in the far off future of three years! I hope you can keep blogging for three MORE years and then three MORE years after that and then THIRTY more years after that!!! Keep at it girl!!! Also you’re hilarious 😉 While I’m here I’ll give you some advise of my own. If you need inspiration just look around you. I have so many book ideas because I keep getting inspiration from other books, movies, tv, music, my friends, among other things. God put inspiration for whatever you write right under your nose, now go find it. (also Pinterest writing prompts have some cool ideas, just saying) Have a wonderful day! BYE!!!!!

      Aahh, yes, that is some AMAZING advice right there, thank you very much!! It’s SO true!! (and the Pinterest tip is also very true as well 😂)
