Blog Bedazzling

First of all, I completed NaBloPoMo this year! Yay! 30 days worth of posts.

Second, I’ve been looking more and more into themes and ideas for my new blog. And by new blog I mean I’m going to buy a domain and upgrade the blog I’m using right now. I just like calling it a new blog. Anyways, I went crazy downloading fonts the other night, and I’ve also been acquiring some new patterns and styles for Photoshop. Check out my background on Twitter for a peak at the color scheme and design aesthetic I have in mind for the blog!

I’m going to try and keep the daily posts going through December. I’m not sure if I’ll get every single day, but I’ll get most of them at least.

Sticking My Feelers Out

I couldn’t resist having that as the title. I’ve been looking into blog networking more, and other resources. I really am excited to take my blog to the next level this summer.

Now, I’m still heavily addicted to Twitter and I think it’s a great resource. Thanks to NaBloPoMo I’ve been getting more readers this month, as I did last year. However, this year I’m trying to comment around on other blogs more, which seems to be helping, according to my stats. Apparently I’ve been saying things that interest at least one person.

I’ve also been looking into StumbleUpon after reading an older post on Five Blondes. I take Five Blondes pretty seriously when it comes to social media since the eldest blonde, Erica, is a guru when it comes to that. StumbleUpon is interesting but I’m not sure I quite understand it yet. Also, I don’t believe I can currently use it on my blog since I’m not self-hosted. WordPress.com users really are screwed when it comes to making their blogs fancier. Most services allow you to use Blogger, and TypePad but they only extend their program to WordPress.org users.

I also joined MyBlogLog after reading about it on I’m Blogging That. Yes, I’m going a bit crazy with the links right now. MyBlogLog is a blogging network where you have “Communities”. It’s kind of like the groups on NaBloPoMo. I’m still deciding what my opinion is on both StumbleUpon and MyBlogLog. But… I wasn’t a fan of Twitter when I first joined and look at me now. Things may change.

I’m Back!

So, I’m still alive. Life got hectic during May and… I just couldn’t seem to get into the blogging mood. But now it is summer and I’ve got no excuse.

Since I’ve last blogged:

-I had prom. Which will definitely be a topic I’ll have to come back to in the next couple days. I went without a date.

-Best Friend found herself a new “Gentleman Caller”.

-I took the AP test, SAT subject tests, and the SAT. Tomorrow I’ve got the ACT and then I’m free!!

-I survived finals and all the end of year madness.

-I’ve become a Twitter addict.

I probably won’t get around to blogging tomorrow since I’ve got the ACT and then a graduation party to attend, but I’m not falling off the radar again. I’ll be back on Sunday for sure, and probably with a retelling of prom. Yay!
