Ten Types Of Blog(ger)s That Are Probably Waddling Around In Your Blog Feed Right This Instant

good morning, Cyberspace!

Today, we are going to be talking about bloggers. And not just any old bloggers — alllll of the bloggers.

Or at least all of the bloggers that I can think of straight off the bat. Because that is a totally thorough and exhaustive interpretation of every single blogger of ever, so if you’re a blogger and do not see yourself anywhere on this list, then technically you don’t even exist and should probably consult your imaginary friends for help.

There are literally a TON more bloggers out there in the universe than what’s on this list, but since I am basically just a smol bean sprout with literally no drive to do anything, I’m just going to take a dramatic stab in the dark with my rusty pitchfork and list off a few of them. Particularly the blogs that you are most likely following right this instant. Because I am a psychic.

And also a wizard.

And as a bonus, I’m willing to bet that YOU happen to fall underneath one (or more…?) of these categories yourself! So if you’re looking for some further enlightenment of who you truly are, then keep reading, my friends. Deeper understanding is only a few clicks away.

(disclaimer: this list is not sarcastic in any way, shape, or form, and should be taken at the highest level of seriousness you — a human — are possibly capable of) Continue reading “Ten Types Of Blog(ger)s That Are Probably Waddling Around In Your Blog Feed Right This Instant”

The First Tag (in which I try and remember my terrible first attempts at being a rip-off writer [and also a sneak peek at my very first use of a writing prompt?])

good morning, Cyberspace!

Now that I’m back from Hiatus, I figure it’s high time that I begin resurrecting myself from the never-ending pit of tags that have apparently been molding and festering in the darkest corner of my studio for the past three years.

(I haven’t even been blogging for three years. #fail)

Apparently I am a very slappable person, folks, because I keep getting slapped in the face with tags.

Which is great, by the way. I love getting tagged. It gives me validation. Continue reading “The First Tag (in which I try and remember my terrible first attempts at being a rip-off writer [and also a sneak peek at my very first use of a writing prompt?])”

14 Things That I Absolutely Love!!!. . .besides writing. (wait what?)

good morning, Cyberspace!

It is officially the first Tuesday of February! Ack! Where has the time gone? Just yesterday we were starting the new year, and suddenly I’m back on the blogging train, rip-roaring past the I-Didn’t-Schedule-Any-Posts-Like-I-Had-Planned-To station.

Man, I love that station. I fly past it every week on my commute. Continue reading “14 Things That I Absolutely Love!!!. . .besides writing. (wait what?)”

Merry Christmas, Cyberspace!!! (and also I’m disappearing #what)


EEP! Can you guys believe that it is Christmas ALREADY?! I can’t. It feels like just yesterday that we were trapped within the hot and sweaty days of summer, and now we’re smack-dab in the middle of snow and flurries and Christmas and cookies and Special K Bars (please tell me at least one of you knows what those are) and PRESENTS and love and goodwill towards all small men and — above every single one of those lovely things — the celebration of Jesus’ birth.

Now, I’m not going to sit here and smack you guys upside the head with all of the particulars on how He is the Reason for The Season and all that like some angry Christian person trying to slice your soul open with a paper leaflet, because odds are you already know the story of the manger and the wise men and the shepherds watching o’er their flocks by night and the angels and the very rude innkeeper and the elves by now.

But just for a moment, in between all of this present-giving and receiving and laughter and eating and Special K Bar enjoying, let’s all just stop and take a single heartbeat to remember the true meaning of Christmas. Let us take three seconds out of our Christmas day to wish a Happy Birthday to the one who the day actually belongs to — to the one who came to lay down his life so that we could be saved.

Let’s take a moment to remember, in a world where everything that matters is forgotten.

As The Sun Sets, The Moon Rises

good morning, cyberspace!

2017 is ending. Can you believe it? In just a few short weeks, we shall be standing on the thin precipice of the years, wobbling unsteadily in the darkened space between the familiar of 2017 and the nightmarish unknown of 2018.

I’m sure none of you remember this, but for me, 2017 was supposed to be The Sunset Year. I was supposed to write ALL OF THE THINGS ond participate in ALL OF THE NANO’S and basically fill my life with books and stories and dragons and gnomes and sunsets and colors all that glorious stuff.

And — as is unfortunately quite usual for me — I failed.

Quite miserably.

This year, on January 3rd, I made a tiny little list of all the things I was hoping to accomplish on this blog in 2017. That list consisted of three things, and three things only.

You would think I’d be able to complete them.

Ha. Ha ha.

Not Today.

Good Morning, Cyberspace!

Now, I am perfectly aware that it has literally been foreeeevvveeerrrr since I’ve actually posted a somewhat normal post around here (a.k,a LISTS and WRITERLY THINGS and also probably more LISTS), but I’m sure we can all agree that NaNoWriMo is somewhat of an attention hogger, which means that between all of the NaNoWriMo Dare Squad posts and the actually trying to conquer the NaNo stuff going on last month, pretty much all of my ‘writerly blog post ideas’ are dead and buried six feet under a blueberry patch mulled over by a puddle of cement.

In other words — they do not exist. Continue reading “Not Today.”

The Twelve Days of Writing – A Musical Parody

My brain is fried potato today, Cyberspace.

NaNoWriMo was — to put it simply — draining. My writerly tube has been completely emptied of all its carefully stored up creative juices, and I am officially a dried up potato fry.

isn’t this wonderful

But it is Tuesday! And Tuesdays mean blog posts, and since I have absolutely no drafts backed up that look appealing in the least, it is time to whip up something drastic.

So here we go, Cyberspace. Prepare yourself. Continue reading “The Twelve Days of Writing – A Musical Parody”

The NaNoWriMo Dare Squad: Your Death Awaits. . .

Happy Tuesday, Cyberspace, and welcome to the final day of NaNoWriMo!

Today is a day of endings. A day of celebration.

A day of death.

That is correct, dearest Cyberspace. At long, long last, the day is finally here. Today, we roll the dice, determine our fates, and potentially throw our fellow teammates who have supported us throughout this entire ordeal under the bus to be irrevocably mutilated by tires and gravel. (wait what.) Continue reading “The NaNoWriMo Dare Squad: Your Death Awaits. . .”

The NaNoWriMo Dare Squad: The Final Pep Talk

Happy Tuesday, Cyberspace, and welcome to the final pep-talk for The NaNoWriMo Dare Squad!

I think I can honestly say that this has been — by far — the oddest NaNoWriMo I have ever experienced.

Sure, there was the Epic Fail of 2015, and the Peculiar Disappearance of the July Camper.

And, of course, let us not forget that one Camp NaNoWriMo wherein I tried tracking my progress via hours instead of words. *dramatically salutes my brain’s rather untimely demise*

But out of all the bizarre NaNoWriMo seasons I’ve gone through, I must say that November of 2017 really takes the cake. Continue reading “The NaNoWriMo Dare Squad: The Final Pep Talk”
