Blogging

Here’s to 2013

It is 2013. For some reason, people think this year is going be really good… or something (maybe it’s a post-(fail)apocalypse thing). Well, in that spirit, I’m making this post. First, let’s take a look at years past, shall we?

Review

GAHGEESHGAROO! (That should be some type of animal… *strokes imaginary beard*…) I just realized I missed my 2012 blogiversary… which mean I’ve now been blogging 5.5 years………… *turns inside out and then explodes*. FIVE AND A HALF YEARS? It feels closer to three and a half… Ah well, let’s look at what I have to show for my five and a half years.

Posts: Counting this one? 111. A cool number, granted, but…. Really? Only 111??? That’s like… 20 posts per year!

Comments: 345 goodies, (again a cool number) and 3,645 spammies.

Subscribers/Followers: 7ish. Mostly family and friends.

My biggest categories are:

  1. Stories, at 25
  2. Blogging, at 21
  3. Miscellaneous, at 20

So, yeah… That’s all I have to show for the first 5.5 years, but what comes next?

Way Too Many Drafts

So, I realize I haven’t posted anything in a while. So I was trying make a new post and that wasn’t working, so I went to look at my drafts to see if I had anything started that I could finish. And I saw that I had ten drafts.

A couple are just something I put up to play around with, some are things from ages ago, like, 2011 Christmas. One even from early on in 2010. Yup, so just think, if I’d posted all those posts I’d have 112 posts on my blog.

Well, actually not quite, ’cause a couple of them weren’t made to be posted, they were just for me to test stuff in. If I got rid of those…

*minute later*

Okay, so closer to about 109 I think.

Anyway, so this is really a random post about nothing, I grabbed a post titled “. . .” from my drafts folder, and it was blank, so I just renamed it and started typing this in it. So now I only have 9 drafts, yay me.

And why would I write a post about my drafts? Same reason I write most my random stuff: Because I’m braindead and haven’t posted in a while and need something to talk about.

What a great first post for 2012… YAY!!! I’M 13 NOW!!! Like, a month late… Hmm, maybe I’ll just consider this a place holder in case I ever decide to write a special post as a first for 2012…

Nah, I probably just won’t do one.

Anyway, hopefully I’ll post again soon, about something that’s actually interesting… Anyway, bye!!!!

100th Post, Writing, Nano, and Badges

Okay, I’m going to rush-talk cause I have a lotish to talk about. Ooh, lotish, that sounds interesting, LOTISH! XD Lottish is probably how you’d really spell it. Anyway, what I was going talk about:

Joking, I’m not going to rush through it that much. Anyway, so this is my hundredth post. Awesome, huh? Yeah, I feel so…. so…. okay, I got nothing. But I have some cool stuff planned out, sorta. Hundredth = 100th = uhm… I don’t know how else to write it, so useless random point over. Anyway, here’s what’ll (probably) be coming up soon:

Well, it’s November, and most people, at least those who have been reading my blog since around this time last year, can guess at what that means. Besides thanksgiving. FOOOOOOOD. :P, no, I’m talking about *drumroll*:

23 and counting

So, just the other day something happened in the world of bloggers, especially homeschooled ones! Bet you’ve guessed what it is: The 23rd Homeschooled Kids Blog Carnival!

This time around, if you read far enough you can find the first entry of my “The Pale Warrior” series.

Four years in the . . . er . . . book?

Fours years now that I’ve been on the internet. I’ve enjoyed my time here, and I’m looking forward to the times to come. It’ll be long and hard, and I’ll probably never be very good at keeping up with the posting, but it’ll also be fun. Who knows, maybe I’ll someday end up as popular as my mom’s blog, Let’s Play Math. I doubt that though, because I have a feeling her math blog is easier to find because it’s math related :P.

Still, I’m actually happy to just have a small crowd. It doesn’t make me feel as pressured to work on my stories (though maybe that’s a bad thing), not just my random posts that are mostly related to my life.

Anyway, in honor of this Blogoversary, I’ve decided to post links to most of my fellow bloggers whom I’ve met on the way. If I forget anyone (which is why I said most), feel free to remind me, :P.

COLLABORATORS UNITE! Wait, uhm. . .

Er, isn’t the point of collaborating and collaborators is that they are united? *Shake head* Oh, well.

Anyway, why am I talking about collaborators and collaborating? Because I am one. Yesterday me and Gecko got together a shared blog. It’s call *druuuuuuum roooooooooll* Collaborative Randomness and the idea for it started with my post about dividing by zero (the one right below this ‘un). In fact, we might have a continued story line from that there post on Collaborative Randomness (Also known as: Coll. Rand.).

We created this new blog for two purposes: 1. because we’ve always been curious about the whole shared blogging  thing, and 2. because Gecko is moving to an (apparently squarish [see coll. rand]) state. WAAAH ): WAAH! I NO GET TO SEE HIM NO MORE *sits in corner* Waaaaaaaaaah DDD:::::::

Anyway, now we have a shared blog, and it’s awesome . . . and it’s random . . . and it is
