Will not be silenced

I am sooooo frustrated at Blogger right now. It's messing up my page layout for no reason.

I like to click around on the blogger bar that says "next blog". From there, I can check out random blogs around the community. I know that's what Blogs Of Note is for, but I have a bit of an ego, and it gets me down when I'm constantly bombarded with blogs that are better than mine. (Doh! Why didn't I think of that idea?) my inner blogger yells at me. From clicking around on the blog community, I have noticed these consistencies:
~Parents like to post pictures of their babies.
~Teenage girls like to post pictures of fashion, or music, or their lives
~artists(THEY always get lots of followers) post pictures of there art.
~other people post random pictures of random things.
I just clicked the "Next blog" button twice. The first was one about inspiring photos.(see?) The second one was lots of pictures of a little boy in a language which I can't comprehend.

What gets me really confused sometimes, is these blogs are popular.  These people get hundreds of followers by posting pictures of flowers and shoes! Maybe I'm just jealous. I've only been around a little while. My posting is erratic and inconsistent. Is it just me, or does it take a lot to get settled into the online Star Wars community? Maybe it's the fact that I don't always post just about Star Wars, but lots of random things as well.

I don't want to post only about one thing though. That seems kind of...limiting. Most of the news that gets circulated about Star Wars is the same thing. New lightsaber chapstick, reviews of TCW, viral fan videos...? With all the other sources of Star Wars news, why would they pick a random girl who also posts about trees and spaghetti, and whose blog design changes drastically every couple hours?

Also, I would rather have a couple loyal followers who are like friends and leave personal comments, than 3000 followers whose comments I don't have time to read?(Exception: Allie Brosh, of Hyperbole and Half, should be applauded for personally reading and responding to every one of her often 100+ comments on every post.)

You guys wouldn't like it if I posted only about shoes just to gain popularity, right?

 I'll try it:

Look! Shoes! They um...go on your feet. You would wear a shoe like this to.....actually, I don't like high heels. They hurt my feet. I would much rather prefer boots. Like Obi Wan's in Attack of the Clones! They're leather and they have these leather straps at the top... ooohhhhhhh

I don't think this is working that well for me, guys....



  1. "I don't want to post only about one thing though. That seems kind of...limiting."

    I agree. I've come across lots of blogs where post after post is on the same topic. It seems to be the accepted thing to do, but like you I prefer to cover a wide range of subjects. That said, a big slice of my blog covers Hong Kong [where I live], China and Chinese culture generally. I see that you like travelling, so you might like some of my Hong Kong posts, written from the point of view of a long-time resident.

    Here is the link.

  2. HAhahaha!!! Jedi boots all the way, sister!

  3. Amaranthine, thanks for visiting my blog. In answer to the question you posed, I live in Hong Kong because my wife is a local Chinese and a professor at HKU. And I'd rather be here than back in the UK. The food's better for a start.

Amaranthine <3's you. Thanks for the comment!

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…
