Blog News- September Issue
I did something very stupid today. So, apparently I had to sign an agreement sheet today at a hair salon to get my eyebrows waxed (they did a very good job by the way) and under the date I put 10-31-11. And I did that because I couldn't remember the date and the lady doing my eyebrows told me that was the date. And I didn't realize this mistake until later. Apparently I need to pay closer attention to the date and go over how many days are in each month again. Epic fail.
Welcome New Members!
Welcome new members who have joined in the month of September! We love seeing your friendly avie there in the follower box! Last month we had a total of twenty four and this month we jumped to twenty-five. Okay not that much of a jump, but hey, welcome new member!
Because I've been too busy to read as many books as I'd like, I've changed Mondays to Game Nights. Every Monday I will post some kind of game or a link to a game and I'll post how to play too. The games (if it's hosted by me) will be runned until it's finished or someone wins unless it becomes a never ending game. I don't have any prizes yet, but if you have any suggestions, I'd love to know!
Pen name changed!
Yep, I've changed my pen name here from Peony to Sareh because that's what my actual pen name will be. I haven't told you what my last name pen name will be, but I will if/when I get published!
Reminders from last month:
Did you recently come across an interesting article or piece of news? Do you have a favorite picture/video that inspires you or you think is just awesome? Is there a great site you visit all the time? Or do you have a great idea for a blog post or a topic you would like to see discussed? If you have a suggestion for something or maybe you would even like to do/see a blog post on something, please let me know though either the facebook page, the contact form at the bottom of the About page, or by emailing me (email address at the bottom of the About page).
Because it's already getting pretty long and so far I've only added books and websites to it, I was wondering if I should add a category for individual pages? I'm not sure if this new category would be organized at all. So what do you think?
Wanted- Writing Ideas and Prompts
My brain isn't great with coming up good ideas, so if you have any writing prompts or ideas you'd like to share, please do so! Or maybe you have a funny story or something random/cool, that works too. Maybe a picture or video?
Yes! We finally have a facebook page! If you haven't liked it so far, please do so! Remember that you can post suggestions and other stuff on it if you'd like but just remember to keep it clean and safe. No swearing or anything with offensive stuff. I'll try my best to keep it updated with blog posts from here and news or whatever else.
