Blogging updates!! 300 followers and more!


The thick of it:

So it's been 3 and a half months since I began Blogger-ing (I had one on LJ for a brief period, before). Words on Paper's birthday is the 14th June 2010. Ahh...it feels like it was only yesterday when I posted my very first post. My blog has become something of a baby of mine, as I've watched it grow. And it's still growing, and it will begin to grow, because it seems that everyday I learn something new, I find a new blog...

ANYWAY, so I hit 300 followers last night. Pretty cool! Unfortunately for you, I'm not hosting another giveaway for a while, until November. We don't celebrate Halloween here in Australia, so...yeah. 

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

 A couple weeks ago, I won a contest for $40 at My Designer Girl, courtesy of Pages. So, that means I'll be having a FULL layout makeover! Yay! I expressed that I wanted to keep my blog header image, so that old followers will still recognise my blog. :) Hehe. Can't wait to see what it looks like!

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

 I have reviews scheduled for the coming weeks, hopefully enough to get me through to November. However, it is very possible that I'll miss a week or two in posts completely, due to exams. :/ Not much I can do about that, but hope you stick around for the parties from November-February!! These parties will be adorned with the tag-line "Giveaways, interviews and guest posts"; though this may transform into something of more in the metaphorical sense of the word party. So, yeah. Just stick around, please!

GLEE! How good was this week's episode? Britney Spears, meet Brittany (?) S. Pears. You have just met your maker, because that GLEE episode was HOT! After a rather disappointing first episode for Season Two, I'm glad that Glee hit it hard with this one.

How I Met Your Mother!! Oh my! I didn't even know this was coming back so soon. I'm so glad. I only got to watch the first episode, but I'm already seeing potential. Maybe I can forgive the writers for their less-than-perfect performance for Season Five, and fall in love with HIMYM all over again. Sure, it didn't really drive the plot forward; I haven't been watching HIMYM for that reason in a LONG time. I keep coming back because I love the characters, and the storylines are usually fresh and cute, the jokes funny and easygoing.




RECAP (+ extras):
  • 300 followers. Whoo!
  • New layout coming in October. Professionally done by My Designer Girl
  • Almost at 100 blog posts! :D
  • Cass begs followers & readers to stick around with bribes such as metaphorical parties
  • TV love! Well, of course, Cass has been enjoying her books lately, too.
  • Cass went to Angus & Robertson and bought her first book in a month! It's for school, but it's a book. Well, okay...it's a formula book for maths, which Cass already had two copies of but both have mysteriously disappeared while in her care.
    Note: Cass is not too good at not losing things.

Congrats on the 300 followers! :D

I so agree with what you said about Glee! Last week I was super disappointed with the season premier, but the Britney episode was fabulous! :)

Congrats, Cass! You are absolutely awesome and totally deserve your large (and fast) following! Any tips for us? ;)

I wish you the best of luck with your HSC(? I think? We call it VCE. XD)

I can't wait to see your giveaways, they should be great.

Best wishes,
Tina

Yay 300 followers, yay giveaways! Congratulations.

I loved the episode of Glee too, Brittany was so good as Britney, especially her dancing, amazing, I wish I could dance like that.

Good luck with your exams, I have one next Friday for statistics which I'm not looking forward to at least it's open book though.

Ohhh I can't wait to see your new layout.

Have a great weekend :)

That's awesome that you reached 300 followers. I also just reached that, and I have also been blogging for about three months. Craziness. Anyway, I really enjoy your site and can't wait to see what your makeover will look like. :)

Congrats on 300 followers! That's an insanely large number. xD

I totally agree with you on Glee! I was kind of disappointed with the premiere, so I was super happy with the Britney episode! I LOVED I'm a Slave for you and Toxic. I LOL'ed so much at "Brittany S. Pearce" xD

Also, I think I'm in love with you for mentioning HIMYM. :)

Lastly, I wanted to tell you I awarded you with the Life is Good Award! :D Stop by and pick up your award! <3
