Ugh. I am literally insane.
More than that, I am tired and insane. Let’s preface everything else with this: the first person who feels bad because they did less than I did will get my fist through their face.
Except that is mean, so I will just glare at you disapprovingly, because who the heck wants to listen to a bunch of people compare themselves to you in a negative way? Not me.
What statistics do you have to share?Goal: Get through Bloglovin’ posts
From the 160-170 posts I had to read to begin with, now only ONE remains. And that is this month’s Beautiful People because I need to post mine still.
Goal: 60 blogs, 210 comments
I visited 123 blogs; 41 of them were new to me. On those blogs I read 210 posts (exactly) and commented on almost each one (some people don’t allow comments, blah) .
Goal: Add/subtract various blogs
I did not keep track of who got kept and who got left, but suffice it to say it did happen and I am pleased with the bloggers I am now following and also pleased with my cleaner Bloglovin’ feed.
Goal: Comment back to every commenter
If you have ever commented on my blog and you have written a blog post since the last time I visited, I commented.
Goal: Write three WiaB posts
Yes, a few more. I’m actually doing a 30 Day Challenge over there, where I just write 250+ words a day about something or other.
Goal: Pay more attention to my WIPs.
HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHHAHA. That didn’t happen.
If you were curious, the most-read blog was Cait’s Paper Fury, at 10 posts. Clockwork Desires and Go Teen Writers were the runners-up.
Also, I shared five of those posts on Facebook daily, tweeted thrice daily, and pinned almost every post on Pinterest. Also, I had a big spreadsheet.
Did you find or learn anything new and exciting this week?
I learned some stuff.
For example, For the Bookish, which I have seen around from Ana, is not said the same way you would say, “Do it for the vine!” Bookish, like bookish people, the same way you say nuevas, like nuevas personas. Ha. I am smart.
Don’t make the page font really weird; save it for titles and headings.
Avoid sounding like you are nine in your writing.
Saying “thank you” is enough.
Making candles sounds cool.
I have so many books to read.
Also, I learned that there are a lot of people younger than me. Like, sometimes it feels like “Oh, I am so similar in age to Aimee and Alyssa” but no. I am not. I am old. *headdesk*
Are there any blogs that made you want to make you change something about your own?
Mostly it’s a design thing. Like, I don’t think SIAS looks hideous but I don’t think it looks super professional either. I like the white, I like the font, but I don’t know what else I’d really want.
Anyway, I probably will not because I am too tired to do all that redesigning again. BS-ing my coding skills is great sometimes, and other times it is not.
What was your favorite part? Your least favorite part?
The best part? Everything is done. Good grief, everything is done. No more posts, no more comments back, no more frantic search for more posts because I ran out just as I reached the 200 mark.
I have met great people and read great posts and I have done great things. It was good.
The worst part? I am exhausted. I have not done any homework since Thursday. I don’t have a ton of stuff prepped for SIAS this week. And I kind of feel like I never want to look at a blog post ever again.
You have to realize, my superpower is also my weakness. I can get anything done that I want to get done. Just at a detriment to my own soul.
(Also, I’m an introvert and you would think that blog post comments would not be exhausting stimulation but you would be wrong.)
Did you enjoy your experience? Would you do it again?
Ask me in six months.
Just kidding, I would. But maybe I’d do it during a week I had off from school instead of doing it during the school week. That was not my most brilliant idea. On the bright side now it is spring break, so that is not a problem.
Other things of note, if you were curious:
- finished first round reads for my CP, Alyssa
- completely abandoned Alyssa and didn’t touch that folder since Thursday
- did not write any of my own stuff
- reading Ceremony for school
- I think I’ve forgotten that I love to read but that’s okay
- started a WiaB 30 Day Challenge
- totally didn’t post a new Love a Blogger because no way José
- learned to put my hair in a bun
- three hour discussion of philosophy, life, school, books, and Twilight on Friday
- watched new Annie movie (!)
- my philosophy class may be ordering t-shirts
- why don’t you take a look for yourself?
So, I’m going to go watch Finian’s Rainbow and not blog. Don’t worry, though—there’s gonna be another awesome guest post tomorrow and I bet you’re going to love it.
