What do you do when you want to buy something that doesn’t exist? You make it yourself, of course!
Clara from Clara and Co did just that. When she couldn’t find a subscription box for bloggers, a lightbulb went off inside of her head. She realized she could create one for bloggers and other content creators.
It was the end of July, a few days before my family was to leave for vacation. I was pondering what to post. My mind was drawing a blank. I felt this pressure to post certain things and make my blog a certain way.
I stepped away from my computer, grabbed a piece of paper and wrote out my honest thoughts about blogging. I realized I didn’t love blogging. I had loved it when I started, but my love had fizzled out.
At first, I was shocked. I knew I didn’t love it, but I didn’t want to stop.
On this day, 2017, an excited Rose ran downstairs. Today was to be the day that she started her blog. She and her friend had been excitedly discussing creating blogs as a summer project during lunch. Her friend had started hers as soon as school got out. About a week later, it was Rose’s turn.
She opened up her laptop and went to the WordPress home page. This was it, the moment she had been waiting for. Her mom by her side, she began to register. But, what was to be the name?
For weeks now, she had mentally gone over what seemed like hundreds of blog name choices. But she fittingly found the one in a book.
The book was Blueberry Pancakes Forever by Angelica Banks, a recent library read. There it was, sitting on the page, “A purpose of winged dogs.” The name was the collective noun (what you call a group of things) for a group of winged dogs. It was creative and represented what she had wanted to blog about to a “t”. Rose had found her blog name.
Well, it’s been a while! Hello guys! I believe it’s been about half of a month since I’ve posted, which is kind of crazy. I did miss this blog a lot and I’m very glad to be back. This post is kind of an updates post about this blog and also about what happened during my absence.
It feels amazing to be back. I’ve missed you all so much and I have so many post ideas! Taking a small break from this blog is exactly what I needed. I became more inspired, and my view on blogging changed for the better. I’m feeling refreshed and ready to introduce the brand new A Purpose of Winged Dogs to you.
Good day, Winged Wonders! It is with a smile towards the future that I make this announcement. As you may know, I have been blogging for six months. I can’t believe it. When I started on this blogging journey, my goal was to share my love of books with the world. And that happened…. at first.
Then came the days where I was caught up in the stats, posting only with the goal of gaining more followers. I have grown to not love this blog as much as I want to.
2017 was quite the year for writing. I wrote my first novel ever (Eek!), then I wrote a novel in one month during NaNoWriMo. So, after having never finished a novel before (There were countless starts), I managed to write two this year.
I’m amazed, really. But, there are so many more that I’d like to write. There are so many that I’d like to see become real books. 2017 was my practice writing year. I wrote tons, and I’m really proud of it. However, my novels were short and uncomplicated. My NaNo novel was purely experimental. But 2018, I want to write like crazy.
In 2018, I’d like to write three novels and edit my other two. I’m quite the dreamer. But, I can explain. One of those three is going to be the sequel to my first novel, the one that I wrote over the Summer. The other two are going to be really in-depth novels. One, I think is going to be fantasy and the other realistic fiction.
So basically, I’ll be working on 5 books in 2018. Here is my month-by-month plan.
Guys, I am super excited to announce this! Seriously, you have no idea. Okay, here is the announcement (Since it wasn’t obvious in the title lol)
I Started Another Blog!!!!!!!!!!!!
That’s right! I have two blogs now! My new blog is all about my American Girl Dolls. Together, my little sister and I have 5 American Girl dolls, and I have been wanting to post about them for some time on here.
But then, I thought Why not just make an entire blog for them? So, I did. I created A Doll-op of AG. I will be posting twice a week, on Tuesdays and Saturdays. I will post photo shoots, photo stories, DIYs, reviews, and so much more. This is sort of the blog of my dreams, the one I’ve wanted to start for a while.
But, do not worry! I will still be posting as usual on this blog. I still love it! So please, check out my new blog. Be sure to comment, like and follow!
