Blogging Confessions:P

Today, I actually thought of something fun and original! Yay! I'm having a good week. Tomorrow's my party and yesterday I won Tessa Emily Hall's giveaway. I won an autographed copy of Purple Moon, plus some other great stuff. AND an autograph copy of Purple Moon!!! Let's just say I'm a little excited.

Today, I decided to write a post with blog confessions. If anyone wants to write a post about their own personal blog confessions, go ahead. Okay, I'm going to try to make this as interesting as possible.

1. I get 90% of my blog posts ideas in the shower.

I'm not sure why this is. I usually like to relax in the shower. Whenever I relax, I make a point to make sure my brain is hard at work thinking of new ideas. For some reason, there are blog posts. An idea pops into my mind and seconds later, I'm speaking out loud in sentences... yeah, I'm weird. But I'm related to Bernie, so what do you expect?

2. I don't comment on other people's posts like I should.

I feel terrible about this. You guys take time to post this wonderful comments that make my day and I haven't repaid you like I should. The best excuse I can think of is that I read a lot of blog posts on my iPod and it's a tad bit different to post comments on your iPod. BUT, I DO read them! Make no mistake about that. And I will try to get better about this.

3. At times, I've considered giving up this blog.
Let's just say it took awhile for me to get regular readers. I used to rarely get comments or any other indication that my blog was being read. (other than my stats.) But the thing was, my love for writing always seems to overrule my common sense. When other people would say, "This is pointless. No one reads my posts!" I say, "No one reads my posts, but writing is so much fun!" There were times when I seriously almost gave up. But now, I'm so happy that I didn't because I have so many good friends on blogging. Thank you guys so much for taking time to read my posts! So, new bloggers, don't give up.

4.   If I ever become a famous author, I never want to stop blogging. Like ever.
That is a MAJOR "if." I guess what I'm trying to say here is, no matter what happens in my life, and no matter how busy I get, I always want to blog. Especially if I become an author. The main reason is because I think it would be so cool if some of my favorite authors had a regular blog. Yes, some of them do and I know the popular ones are busy. But if I ever write a story that's good enough to be published, I always want to blog.

I was originally planning to write five, but four's a nice number too. Today is my "birthday" party. My birthday is actually next week, but I'm doing it a week earlier because this week is when my best friend is going to be in town. I haven't seen her in a few months so it's going to be so much fun.

Yesterday, I happened to watch "Ella Enchanted" for the first time in many years. And wow... it wasn't as bad as I remembered. The truth is, it was much worse. I hold Ella Enchanted dear to my heart because it was one of the books that got me into writing. The movie producers made it into some stupid comedy, when anyone who has read the book, will know that it is much more.

Well, I just felt the need to get that off my chest. Thank you reading this post:)


  1. Happy early birthday and have fun with your best friend!
    I think everyone struggles with not commenting on other people's blogs, but that's okay because everyone is busy in their own ways! I have definitely gotten better about commenting on people's post, but sometimes there are more important things that have to get done!
    I agree with you! I almost gave up blogging because nobody ever read my blog but I finally got it out there and I have found an awesome blogging community!

    1. Thank you! Thanks for understanding as well. I will try my hardest to get better about that. I'm so glad you didn't give up .Your blog is awesome:)
      In Christ,

  2. Happy Happy (early) Birthday!! I heard you are having a skating party!! That's amazing. =D I loved this list!! I watched Ella Enchanted for the very first time about a week ago. It wasn't bad...Hattie and Olive were PERFECTLY described/acted, in my opinion, but other than that, it really wasn't on the book at all. The same characters, but not the same plot...At all. So, that stinks. =P Anyway, have a lovely birthday party!!

    Love ya!

    1. Thank you! We had a lot of fun! Yeah, Hattie and Olive were wonderfully done, as well as a few other things, but other than that, it wasn't the same at all. No wonder the author said she only watched it once. Lol.
      Love you too!
