LOOK!! IT'S MY BLOG BIRTHDAY!!

by - June 10, 2018

HELLO TO YOU TOO, DARLING READER and today I'm super happy because I GET TO WRITE A BLOGOVERSARY CELEBRATION POST!! *happy dancing*

I've wanted to write a blogoversary post forever ^-^





1.


Rewind back to one and a half years ago. That's when I discovered the blogosphere. Around December 2016/January 2017.

The first blog I ever landed on was Bookish Serendipity kept by a 15-yr-old Canadian called Jessica Bernt, and I found her because she'd been interviewed in The Writer Magazine in March 2016. If that blog still existed today it would be at the very top of the list. From reading it I learned what blogging really was, about different styles of book reviews, and I found you. I found this community.

But yeah, Jessica Bernt has pretty much disappeared from the face of the Internet, as far as I can see, and it is so sad *cries*

Anyway! The second blog I found was For The Bookish and from the "friends" page on there I found A Writer's Faith and Fishing For Ideas (plus others of course, but it was these two that stuck with me till now) and here I am.

So I started following blogs - not actually subscribing, of course, but checking back every other day in hopes of a new post XDD I read archives. Oh boy, did I read the archives. Every spare minute I had I was reading archives. Archives that I devoured WHOLE include Writer Emily Mundell, To The Barricade, The Left-Handed Typist, and Sunshine and Scribblings.

Then, in June (not July lol) I STARTED MY OWN BLOG. Called Inkwell (come to think of it, if I were starting my blog now I would give it a different name, but whatever. Inkwell means a lot to me you know XD)

And that's my story!!

2.



Here comes my favorite part of ever! THE ACKNOWLEDGEMENTS. I adore reading book acknowledgements and I feel that I need to do the same thing for my blog, because I wouldn't be where I am without so many of you.

God, first of all, because I'm quite convinced You brought me here, and for that I'm eternally grateful ^-^

My amazing cousin, Syl, because it was your idea to "start a blog to showcase [my] work" and while I've been very bad at showcasing my stories like you suggested, I've certainly benefited in so many other ways. I credit this to you ;)

My family too! Because they are my biggest fans, critiques, and promoters - (my mom = my fan, my sibs = my critiques, my dad = my promoter :P).

I'd like to shout out to my role models in blogging (aka those whom I admired even before I began) -

Katie Grace, because you welcomed me with open arms;

Jonathan, because you also found this newbie my first Camp Nano cabin;

Emily, because you let me read an ARC of your book, and participate in your blog tour (two firsts for me at the time!);

Mary, because you were one of the first to see my blog in all its newness and you told me it was  amazing (#mindblown);

Savannah, because your blog has taught me so much by being 100% #goals;

Cait at Paperfury (though you probably are not reading this), for teaching me about voice and how to write FUN book reviews XD;

Abbiee, because without your wisdom, I wouldn't be anywhere;

Rosalie, because you were the first flash fiction fan I ever stumbled upon (and that means A LOT lol);

Tracey, because you were the first TED DEKKER fan I found and asdfdfdfdkfjsalkfj words can't express how head over heels happy I was;

Abi, because you were my first author friend, and the first to allow me to beta read your work, and the first to put my name in the acknowledgements of a book

THANKS SO MUCH TO ALL OF YOU, MY SUPER BLOGGER ROLE MODELS - all I've learned about this game, I owe it to you <3


3.


OK ALSO SO MANY THANK YOUS TO ALL OF THE AMAZING BLOGGERS I FOUND ALONG THE WAY -

especially -

Ivie - because ... because WHAT? HOW CAN I LIST EVERYTHING?? You're such a lovely human and one of my best blogging friends <3;

Karyssa - my one and only plotting buddy who rescues me from plot bunnies;

Sare - the author of MY SECOND FAVE BLOG OF ALL TIME;

Julia - my third favorite poet of ever and that's saying A LOT;

Kenzie - because actually it was your blog and your blog only that inspired my newest aesthetic (surprised? you shouldn't be);

Amanda - YOUR TRADEMARK HUMOR (your posts always make my day);

Ella - your PROFESSIONALISM blows me away (and as a fairly new blogger myself - *ahem* yes, I am older than you - I know what an achievement that is - and you inspire me);

Gray - I think you're the most real blogger I've ever seen (and I'm sorry that word cannot describe half of what it means);

and then there's Anna, and Catherine, and Lila, and Skye, and True, and Snapper, and Hanne, and Elaikie, and Ang, and Jem and Julian who deserve a BIG SHOUT OUT for being my squad (so to speak) - most frequent commenters and making me feel so at home where I am ;D

AND THEN THERE'S YOU. All of you who ever read, who ever comment, who follow - THANKS FOR TAKING THE TIME TO READ WHAT I HAVE TO SAY. I wouldn't be here without you <333 And I wish I could go on listing everyone I follow, and everyone who follows me - but that would take so much space. Still I'm going to feel endlessly guilty for NOT MENTIONING you in any other way than this :P

4.


SO WHAT NEXT??

MY SPECIAL CONTEST ^-^

I had this spectacular idea for a prize (*ahem* yes, you heard right XD) which actually involves my faithful minion toiling night and day to prepare it for you and since I was mistaken about the date of my blogoversary (#oops) the prize isn't actually 100% ready yet -_-

HOWEVER.

My Special Celebratory Event is to be a contest, and seeing as you need time to enter, I have decided to let it run for ONE MONTH before picking the winner. That will also give time for me (and my minion) to prepare the prize.


^^ What is the prize, you might ask?
Sorry, folks, the contest first.


At first I was thinking a giveaway. But I decided no on that because

  • It's too easy for all of you while
  • we still need to work hard on the prize
  • and it's not very fun for anyone except the winner -_-

SO, that left the option of A CONTEST open! Since I adore short stories, I thought "why not a short story contest?" The answer to that is ...
  • it means I have to read a lot of short stories and try to pick my favorite #tough
  • it means you have to spend a long time (and yes, short stories take a long time) to write your entries
  • it means I won't get as many entries as I'd like 

Therefore, I decided on something in between. A MICRO-FICTION CONTEST.

^^ What is micro-fiction, you might ask? 
It's fiction under 300 words.

I KNOW! YOU ARE EVEN MORE DAUNTED THAN BEFORE!

Don't worry! My main idea here is not to create award wining pieces (even though there is an award lol) but for you to have fun! (and for me to have fun and read your stories lol)

I have provided you with a selection of prompts and your job is to be inspired. Then, write your piece. Fast. Punchy. Only one point.

My tips for writing these kinds of stories are 

  • start very very short. you can always add more words later. 
  • stick to ONLY ONE main idea.
  • show a moment. it doesn't have to be a full story. the idea with flash fiction is to show a conflict, and the character's reaction.
  • have a conflict, like I said above. you don't need to show how it began, or how it ends. you will find it helpful to throw your reader right into the middle of the "action".
  • show emotion. rather than resolving it, you know, you want to show how your character reacts.
  • cut out adjectives and adverbs. "never use a long word when a short one will do" (or, never use a group of words when one will do).
  • HAVE FUN. that's my main requirement. 
  • in essence - keep it quick, keep it intense, have fun.

Are you on board? Great! My rules are as follows:

  • be inspired by the prompt
  • keep your story as clean as possible
  • keep your story under 300 words
  • deadline is July 10th.

AND ABOUT THE PRIZE NOW. Since many bloggers are fans of GIFs (and they are hilarious after all) I am giving the winner a pack of GIFs. And no, not just any old GIFs either. Hand drawn (digitally) by my faithful minion (and/or me - who knows? I'm very busy -_-). 

Here are a couple of examples to what we do:


This is the rougher version XDD




And this is one of my faves lol

Since the blog birthday crept up on me unawares, I am not yet totally sure exactly how many gifs that will be, but! It will be 50+.

And I'm hoping to be able to gift something to the second/third place winners as well. I'm not sure WHAT EXACTLY YET but we'll see ;D

And I hope to have the chance to publish some of these stories on my blog - so I'm giving you an option in my entry form to say "yes" or "no" to that ;D

Oh and never fear, if you win and don't like gifs, I can always send you some cool wallpaper painted/designed by me ;D


So without further ado:


Your prompt is this. Go to this amazing blog and choose any poem and write a story inspired by that poem. No, you don't need to quote or refer to the words in the poem in any way, so long as it was the inspiration behind your story.

And here's your entry form:





Note: a huge huge thank you to my faithful minion Retse Dragon for inspiring and helping with the prize XDD

SO. THAT'S THAT. Hopefully you enjoyed this blog birthday post *throws confetti* and hopefully you'll find time to enter this :D 

Also, I'd be super grateful if you shared this around, just cos the more the merrier! But no pressure, of course XD


so, happy blogoversary to inkwell, 
and what did you think of my contest idea? will you be entering? how long have you been blogging?

  17. First off, happy blogiversary! I have stumbled on your blog once or twice before, and haven't actually subscribed, but Julia linked to you and I wanted to say
    1. Congratulations!
    2. HTTYD GIFS, awwwwww! I don't use gifs, but my sis does and I love Toothless, sooo ;)...
    3. I submitted a story. I saw your post yesterday, and started writing a story last night. I'm never this spontaneous, like, I have no idea how I let this happen. I hope I don't regret it. I mean, I rarely write, not because I don't have ideas, but because I don't want to do injustice to the stories I see in my own head, and I never share the stories I do write, so I don't know why I did this time, haha. But I seriously thought it was the neatest idea! (My story was like 541 words though. Do you KNOW how much it hurt to cut it? Like, the whole first entrance paragraph is cut out. And the "bookend" opening and closing. Gahhhh. It was hard.)
    Anyhoot. Congrats again on blogging for a year!
    Rejoicing in Hope,
