I spent a lot of yesterday reading other people's blogs (ie. Hayley, Rosi, and Maureen Johnson herself) and it has made me realize I should start to be a better blogger.
Not that there was anything WRONG with how I blog, it's just that there is everything RIGHT about how THEY blog.
So hi. First I am here to pimp a blog I love/kind of help with but havent actually posted on in months. Basically if you love giraffes, you should go follow it. It's not a BEDA blog, but it's good anyway.
GIRAFFE BRANCH IS LOVE.
I love how many more comments I've been receiving on my blog since BEDA started. Blogging, until now, has always sort of been that thing everyone does and feels slightly guilty about because how many outlets of expression do we REALLY need (facebook, youtube, twitter, dailybooth, oh my). But this month is fun, it's like celebrating that EVERYONE is narcissistic and feels like their faces and opinions should be strewn as far and wide as they can be, right?
So basically, thank you for making this lovely little blogging community. I think this means I should comment more.
I am very excited because my download of the Office seasons 1-4 has JUST finished; I heard the little "ding!" as I was typing this blog. Now I can finally watch them and feel like I am not a human being walking around missing my left arm or something, like many people make me feel for not having watched the Office prior to now.
Tonight I believe I am going to go home to my parents' house for my first manual car driving lesson. Wish me luck. :/
Hayley does this cute little thing at the end of her blog where she says what's sexy and unsexy; I'm not going to BLATANTLY copy her, but I have an idea for something like this too. In the comments of my last blog, people were leaving me their silly word verification words. One person even went so far as to make up a definition for this new invented word.
So I think over the course of this month, we should invent a new sort of blogger's dictionary together. It'll give this blog a purpose for existing, and I'll even have something to show for the month of April when it's over.
Create a New Word Every Day in April. CNWEDA. Sinweeda? Sinweeda = the act of making up new words? Okay, clearly I suck at this, so that's where I need your help. If you follow me on blogger, you can try to translate your word verification word, unless it's something like Xjarnok in which case you could just go name the main character of your novel that like Alex Day. If your word verification sucks, or you follow me on Maureen's ning, just think of something at random! I'll pick the best one to be the following day's word of the day.
Today's Word: Blegonin.
A verb used to describe the process of noises and movements a person makes when getting the frog out of their throat in the morning.
Like, my science teacher asked me a question today, and I started to answer but I had the raspy voice of a grandpop. So do my process of coughing and what not, and after he smiles and says "What was that?" and I simply reply, slightly embarrassed, "Sorry; I was blegonin. I'm better now." - by Dana Vlahos.
Since I am a douche and want to copy Hayley more, I'm also going to track my subscriber count all month. Wooo YouTube.
