good morning, cyberspace!

Guys. FriendsI think there are some things we need to talk about.

Say, for instance, this blog. And also how terrible I’ve been at running it lately.

I know, I know, you’ve probably seen this coming for a while now. What with my posts becoming fewer and farther between, and the content being somewhat. . .undesirable, I think it’s safe to assume that we all knew this had to happen eventually.

We all knew it had to come to an end.

So after much debate — and after countless tears, I can assure you — I have been forced to make one of the hardest decisions of my life. Continue reading “Goodbye, August! Goodbye, Friends! (feat. the blogiversary Q&A, where i am going, and a few random tidbits of excitment)”

Since I’ve Been Gone. . .

 

good morning, cyberspace!

and welcome to July! In case some of you missed my last post (in which i detail everything about my recent hiatus) I have officially returned to the blogosphere.

. . .and it feels so, so good.

I’ve missed you guys. I truly have. Although my Hiatus was definitely not refreshing and creatively filling for my poor raisin of a brain, I have missed this constant struggle of coming up with a new post idea every week. (lol, it’s monday, again, guys. SURPRISE!) Of course, I was supposed to take last month’s hiatus as an opportunity to backlog some new posts for July-August, but apparently I am a pathological liar and basically did nothing productive for this blog at all during June.

Which I am honestly not all that surprised about.

And so, it stands to reason that I also lied about something else. Let’s roll the quotes, shall we? Continue reading “Since I’ve Been Gone. . .”

12 Things I Learned In 100 Blog Posts

good morning, cyberspace!

Today marks a very important moment in Smudged Thoughts History, my friends. On this very day, by the time I hit that massive PUBLISH button glaring at me angrily, Smudged Thoughts will have officially hit 100 posts.

And I am screaming.

I can’t even believe this blog has stuck around this long, to be honest. For those of you who know me, you’re already well aware of the fact that I am a flighty little octopus. I like to do ALL OF THE THINGS! which means that I basically end up doing NONE OF THE THINGS! as I will have dropped whatever it was that I was squealing mercilessly about three days ago by the time I actually decide to follow through with it. So the fact that Smudged Thoughts didn’t just miraculously drop off the face of the planet three months into publication is a massive electrical shock to my instability.

This blog shouldn’t even be here, guys. It should have been swallowed up by the giant maw of Cyberspace and lost to the swirling vortex of projects gone wrong a loooong time ago.

And yet. . .here we are. I’m still blogging. I’m still posting. I’m currently working on updating my webpage so that it feels a tad bit more cartoony and adorable and Kenzie-esque. So — horror of all horrors — it looks as though I’m sticking around for a while.

Which is good. Because I don’t think bombing out right after hitting the 100 post milestone would help out my unstable track record very much.

But anyway. Seeing as though this is my 100th blog post, I have humbly decided that obviously I am a master at this whole blogging thing, and therefore have ALL OF THE ANSWERS when it comes to the art and craft that is owning a blog. (obviously. it’s not like i’m still a newb at this at all. *nervous eye-twitching*)

100 posts* teaches you things, my friends. Sometimes it’s good things. Sometimes it’s not-so good things. Sometimes it’s spam comments. And since I am nothing if not a lovely, calm, completely helpful bean, I think it’s time that I impart all of my blogging wisdom upon your smol soul. 

(because i am obviously a professional when it comes to blogging and am definitely not a smol little newb in any way, shape, or form lol)

*let us completely ignore the glaring fact that I’ve only written 99 posts hahahahahahaha everything is under control here Continue reading “12 Things I Learned In 100 Blog Posts”
