Guys, it’s almost Christmas 2015! This is so exciting! A lot of great, crazy things have happened this year and I love having Christmas and New Year’s as a time to reflect on everything that has happened. Thank you so much to everyone for always being there for me no matter what. I’ve had an absolutely amazing time this year with my friends, family, and new co-workers! This year I discovered even more about myself, even thought I thought I knew all I needed to!
Last year when I was reliving moments from my childhood by watching old creepy cartoons from decades ago, I stumbled across one with a really old Christmas song. For a whole year I tried searching for it—and I was determined to finally find it this year. After hours of searching on Google, I finally found it! What a relief. It was on a woman’s blog, who, yes, also searched for it for ages until she found it and was kind enough to post it on her own blog to end the suffering of others. It’s a song from 1946 and it’s called “All Around The Christmas Tree”. It is WAY too underrated. There’s two videos of it on YouTube with a very small view count, not to mention the fact that I spent a year looking for it. I feel like it has the potential of being a Christmas classic. Too late, I guess. Check it out here:
There’s less than two weeks until Christmas time. That means under two weeks to buy the perfect present(s), get all your Christmas movie watching time in, and all of the awesome Christmas goodies you get to eat! I hope everyone has a great holiday season. Make it the best one yet! xoxo
Now that Christmas and NYE are both over, it’s time for us to go back to school/work and it’s pretty unfortunate. But hopefully we’ve all had an amazing break and will continue to prosper in the new year. So, I ask: How was your holiday?
Since it’s less than two days away until the new year, I decided to write a blog post about blog posts. Literally. So today’s topic is: why I started to blog. I definitely don’t blog as much as I should, but for what I do, I like it. Blogging’s fun. It’s like an online journal for the whole world to read. Somewhere you can place everything you love and write about anything that interests you at all. When I first got my blog, I just wanted it to be a website about me, my novels, my acting career, and my motivational speaking career. Then as time went on, I realized that WordPress was specifically designed to be a blogging platform. So, I began to write more blogs. A lot of opinion pieces, influential quotes, stuff like that. Then as I acted a bit more and did a public speaking event, I realized that juggling three things (being a novelist, actress, and public activist) was too much for me to handle as a career and I just wanted one thing to focus on. Since I’ve been writing books since a little girl, I decided on dropping the acting and motivational speaking titles and just continue on with writing. This is why my blogs are a lot more wordy now, rather than just quotes like they used to be. But I do love quotes still! You probably noticed. My favourite author and I talk sometimes (I know, she’s totally awesome) and she told me that publishers enjoy looking at blog posts and that every good author should have one. Right on! I’m going to stop rambling on now. But in conclusion, what I thought about the day I started writing on my blog was: “Writing’s fun. Blogs are fun. Let’s do this.” And so I have! Oh, and, I get to proclaim my obsession for the colour pink. Also in case you haven’t noticed, which you probably have.
