Introducing An Experimental Blog Series

For most of the past year I’ve had this blog, I haven’t really known what to do on Fridays. In this past month I’ve gotten an idea, but I haven’t gotten around to taking the pictures to start. But now I have. This is a variation on what I did as a much younger child.

Meet the Ingalls, my paper doll family. They star in plays and adventures with their friends, whom you will meet at later dates.

Sadly, Jack is missing.

Often they will be seen with their house in the background. But my computer, my bookshelf, the pfaff, and other such things will be fun props.

Are you interested?

Wardrobe Dreams

When ever it was I wrote about Wardrobe Plans. They are sensible things that frequently get mixed up with wardrobe dreams.

I love wardrobe dreams. They are very impractical. It’s when you see something and you love, but you don’t know where in the world you would where it. If you wore it to a wedding they would accuse you of trying to outshine the bride.

These are things you would only wear to a dress up party. Or to a super fancy formal event. Or maybe some historical or cultural event.

These lists can be cool, pointless, and fun. Here are a few items on my list:

Traditional Korean Hanbok. They have full wrap around silk skirts.Korean Hanbok dress shop | Hanboksarang

Most things from Armstreet. Okay I would actually wear their clothes in everyday life if I could afford it.

Frye Boots. Honestly I’d almost never wear them and they cost a lot, but …

 

 

The End (Of The Knock-Knock Joke)

I may be the only person to care about and remember back towards the beginning of my blog, I posted a knock-knock joke. It is a proper knock-knock joke. You can tell because it uses a real first name. As much as I enjoy certain non real ones, they simply aren’t as fun.

I truly suggest checking out that old post because this joke is the one that comes after it. This joke won’t make sense without the first one.

Knock-Knock.

Who’s there?

Andy.

Andy who?

Andy he bit me again.

Why I’ve Been Doing So Many Blog Tours (And Why You Might Want To Consider Doing A Few)

As my followers may have noticed, I’ve been doing lots of blog tours recently. Partly it is because I want to show my support for these cool people and their dreams, but it also goes deeper than that.

I love my blog. I love posting three or four times a week. Lately though I’ve been busy. Some of what has been making me busy is bloggable, but a lot isn’t. There just isn’t much I can say about, “so my computer is slightly crazy and every Monday for the past month I’ve been adding software” or “had to shorten my bed so my oldest sister could have a mattress” or “it’s been so wet everything has stalled”  and “preparing for a bunch of crazy summer trips” is simply exhausting.

Also I’ve been having slight blogging burnout. Ideas start to come, but before I can get them written down they are gone. Or I’ll have a couple of good ideas about the same subject, but I can only post one at a time and by the next week I don’t care about that thought anymore.

So the blog tours have been giving me something set in stone to write about. They are showing off cool books. They give me a chance to connect with and share some of the bloggers I enjoy reading.

So I’m sorry. This isn’t a book blog. Books will only be on Fridays and some Tuesdays. As much as I love books and will continue joining in on blog tours, I don’t want to seem like that is all I’m doing. I don’t really have plans for what will be on my blog coming up, but it won’t be this barrage of blog tours.

Logo FINAL

Like I’ve said, blog tours are great. Especially if (like me) you feel like you might be nearing burnout. Or if your ordinary life will be getting super busy. Signing on as a spotlighter or an interviewer is easy. And then you’ll get a cool post you just have to edit.

Camp NaNoWriMo!!! April 2019 Halfway

Ok so it’s closer to two thirds…… But

Camp NaNoWriMo

I decided to spend this Camp Nano finishing Aleah Ash and plotting another story.

I ended Aleah Ash the way M says I always end my stories,

Well, That was fun.

I don’t know what I will do with it now. Maybe edit it and see if I can find it some beta readers.

And the plotting has gotten half a dozen chapters planned out, then I realized I’m planning a travel story loosely based on the real world.

Since then I’ve been using google maps to figure out travel paths. Did you know that Concrete is next to Grassmere? And there is a town called Huzzah.

I fell behind on the first couple of days, but by the middle of the month I was back on track. Then this past Wednesday I got a reading headache. And now I’m super behind.

My Computer

A lot has happened to my computer since the last time I posted.

1. It has become officially mine and only mine. B who was technically sharing it with me got his own computer. It’s a black and red colored acer.

2. B has offered to upgrade it. I don’t know what all he plans on doing, but he mentioned getting rid of his side. I’m thinking I may ask him to do it next week. I want to have as few tabs up as possible.

3. The cord broke for the second time. My cord had finally broken for the first time about a week ago. (I hate my current cord, I been waiting for it to break for two years) B soldered it back together, but the solder quickly broke, due to the fact that it wasn’t really supported. (I was right in the middle of trying to figure out my Barnes and Noble order.)

Sorry for the lousy picture, but that is the end of my cord as it now is

I have a DELL. It is fancy. Along with the normal laptop mouse pad, it has a touch screen. It also has a pen and a middle of the keyboard mouse. Did I mention that the screen rotates and lies flat…

If you are not a geek why are you reading this post? I use Linux. I most commonly use Manjaro, but I also have Ubuntu. I hope to start switching back and forth between the two OS’s someday.
