The Life Cycle of A Blog

Hey guys! I've made my first cartoon. I'm still not too good with the paint program, but see how I did. The purpose wasn't to point fingers or make fun of anybody, just a reminder that everything, including blogging, takes constant work, care and maintenance. Good blogs are hard to maintain, but worth it! (I'm still working on mine!)
Here's the cartoon.(click to make it bigger.)

Good work to all of you who work hard at blogging(though it IS boring sometimes, admit it, especially after the excitement fades) and thanks to all of my followers who encourage me through reading my stuff, and the occasional comment. Nothing is more encouraging than comments!

If you have your own "dead" blog(I have one, too) then I would like to encourage you to keep at it! If you haven't blogged recently, then no worries, no one expects you to blog everyday. Just keep your mind open for ideas, and even if you think no one's reading what you write, keep at it! If you have a "baby" blog(in it's first few stages of life) then feel free to give me the address and I'll follow you and encourage you!  


  1. Hey, my blog had her 1st birthday last June, and she's not dead yet!!!

    It's totally true that you can't really have a good blog without comments, but I think the real purpose (at least for me) was to just practice writing skillz and have fun telling people about myself and my life. I don't much care how many people see it or like it (well, ok, I do, but not enough to try to grow my blog at all).

    9 days till Mockingjay!!!

(fangirl flapping of arms and running around in circles) (eee) (ignore this)(spoilers for Son of Neptune)

my fangirl obsessions go in cycles...this week, it's totally Heroes of Olympus/Percy Jackson(again)

There's this amazing artist on deviantart...burdge-bug...who does AMAZING Percy Jackson, Hunger Games, Harry Potter, Maximum Ride, and even HOWL'S MOVING CASTLE fanart. Now, we need to get her to read Artemis Fowl...XD.

Anyways, here are some of my favorites of hers.

I kind of want to pull a Ms. Black and blast Jason right off the tapestry. There's some speculation to whether or not Annabeth will be on the Argo II. I kind of don't want her to be, so Nico can join instead. Then again, if Nico is already in Rome(as speculated at the end of Neptune) there's still room.  GAH RR WHY MUST YOU TORMENT US SO

love this scene...Senatus Populusque Romanus FTW.

Which do you think is cooler? Camp Half Blood or Camp Jupiter? Camp Jupiter definitely has a more efficient way of doing things(separating by cohort instead of parentage, sending large groups instead o…

Ciel Phantomhive vs. Artemis Fowl

Don't laugh. XD
The similarities between the two characters are so distinct and obvious that comparison is inevitable for anyone who's read/watched both series. I seriously thought when I first noticed Black Butler(more popularly referred to as Kuroshitsuji) that it was literally an anime adaption of Artemis Fowl.  Other people have read Artemis Fowl and thought "CIEL HAS A CLONE??!?"
So I thought I'd outline some of the differences and analyze who would win. XD
Appearance:  This is the first similarity, and one of the most major, because if they didn't look so darn alike I don't think the comparison would have been as striking. The above picture of Artemis is a fanart, because there aren't really any good pictures of Artemis, and the manga style makes it more obvious. They are both from the British Isles and have black hair and blue eyes. Both of them lose/change/switch an eye resulting in two different colors. 
Circumstance: They both s…

updates on life(aka excuses to post tumblr gifs)

If I had to describe my life in one word right now, it'd be cold. Brr.

Let's see..what's happening?

I got my back bend kickover from le ground in acro. It's awesome. :) I never thought I'd be able to do it XD

Of course, it's not with straight legs(yet). And I don't hit my splits in the middle. Come to think of it, it's actually sort of a back flop-over.

I read Skeleton Key and Eagle Strike(next two Alex Rider books) last night. The series has gotten better, but it still has the same problems. Just like Suzanne Collins makes the simplest events seem chilling and scary, the numerous random deaths in Alex Rider are just like "meh...whatever."

They all still have similar plots. Such as:

1. The book opens with some sort of mysterious circumstance. Usually an assasination or an exchange where one of the members gets stabbed in the back(sometimes literal, sometimes not) and killed. Either way, someone usually dies.
2. Alex Rider is hanging out drinkin…
