Here, Have Some Cake! // Blog Party

blog party

WELCOME TO THE NEW BLOG! I know, I know — I finally changed something. I’ve been wanting to change my theme for positively aeons, but that came with a healthy dose of procrastination. I’m still twiddling with several things, but I’m 89% sure the general feel will be staying the same.

Also! It’s my two year blogoversary. And I (fairly) recently reached 400 followers. I really think it was excellent timing. πŸ˜‰ To celebrate all these things: I HAVE FILMED A VLOG. *hides*

A couple of people suggested this in the comments, so I may as well do it now. Even though it is my face, and also me talking and being very very sentimental. The things I do. *shakes head* (Just kidding. It was actuallyΒ kind ofΒ fun. If scary.)

Some things that have happened over the last year:

  • I went to my first ever con. Actually my first two cons — and they were both so fabulous that I’m going to MCM London again in October. If any of you guys are going, I’d love to say hi!
  • I wrote poetry. I haven’t posted any since spring, but I’M REALLY HOPING TO SHARE SOME SOON. I promise. Otherwise, nudge me because I’ve probably forgotten again.
  • I liked Les Mis a lot. Um, in case you missed it. (I absolutely need to show you the looovely illustrated edition I got for my birthday. PLUS, I WENT TO SEE IT AT THE THEATRE ASDFJKL I think I need to write about that soon.)
  • Actually, I just liked a lot of books.
  • I discovered a ton of awesome new blogs. And I am STILL discovering them.
  • I completed my first actual NaNo during Camp NaNo. I’m actually hoping to rewrite that for this NaNo, but I STILL COMPLETED AN ACTUAL GOAL. Of the same project. Which is not something I usually do.
  • I listened to a lot of new music. Spotify and 8tracks have basically made me realise THERE IS A LOT OF MUSIC THAT IS NICE TO LISTEN TO WHAT IT IS THIS COOL NEW SONG?!? etc. etc.

PeopleΒ who make blogging more awesome!

I love the social aspect of blogging. It’s the nicest thing to read blogs and fangirl/discuss like sane humans together instead of alone at a keyboard. Thank you so much to all the lovely blogs that I read, and all the people who comment. YOU ARE ALL FABULOUS. *hugs*

Adventuring Through Pages / Books and Bark / The Devil Orders Takeout / A Hufflepuff’s Thoughts / Musings From Neville’s Navel / Mixolydian Musings / Nut Free Nerd / Quenching the Quill / The Writing Hufflepuff / Six Impossible Things / Starry Stories / Stay and Watch the Stars

I am very indebted to you. Here, let me hand you a slice of cake. (Or something else nice; perhaps a book? XD) Actually, LET ME HAND YOU ALL SOME CAKE. Even if I have forgotten you off this list, which will undoubtedly happen because I can have the memory of a goldfish — my cheesy gratefulness to all my followers is in no way lessened. πŸ˜‰

Plus, since I’m not confident that any cake I send will make it through the computer screen: I’m hosting a giveaway! The winner will get receive a book of their choice, up to the value of Β£10. It’s open to all countries The Book Depository ships to. (Hopefully that covers most of you.)

  1. EVE YOU ARE SO CUTE AND FUNNY MAKE MORE VLOGS (but if you don’t want to of course that’s alright! πŸ™‚ ) HAPPY BIRTHDAY AND CONGRATS ON 400 FOLLOWERS THAT IS AWESOME. The cake thing would’ve been a bit cruel haha, also what would you do with all that cake since we don’t have awesome technology that let’s you transport food to other people through their screens? (woah that’s a long sentence) Though eating it all by yourself doesn’t sound like a bad option haha. If you wanted to be REALLY cruel, you should’ve done that in front of the camera πŸ˜‰

    1. AAAH THANK YOU EEK Probably not loads? But I’d definitely like to make a few more vlogs in the future. πŸ™‚
      I am…kind of realising that now, haha. I SWEAR, I WASN’T TRYING TO SOUND LIKE I ENJOY THAT SORT OF THING. Scrap google glasses; I need food teleportation! XD
      Maybe I could make purposefully make a disgusting cake but decorate it prettily… Then I wouldn’t have to feel so bad? Maybe? (This train of thought is getting so complicated, haha.)

      1. Yay I’ll b looking forward to those! πŸ™‚
        FOOD TELEPORTATION WOULD BE SO AWESOME IF IT HAPPENED IT WOULD BE THE BEST INVENTION OF THE CENTURY
        Haha but that’s such a waste! Just make a delicious one πŸ™‚

  2. I had no clue your name was Eve! We’re almost name twins (unless, of course, your real name is actually Eve, so then we would only be first letter twins, for Evi is a pseudonym πŸ˜€ ). ANYHOW CONGRATULATIONS MY FRIEND ON TWO YEARS AND 400 FOLLOWERS! You are an amazing blogger and a fabulous person and I love your blog to bits! *supreme hugs*
    You saw the play?!?!?! OMG was it fabulous? How were the songs? *fangirl rants* I’d love to see some of your poetry as well, and vlogs if you want to!
    The new blog looks FANTASTIC, btw. It’s so crisp and clean and amazing! πŸ˜€
    BASICALLY: lots of love and more cake for you, my friend!

      1. Ahaha, no worries! I think it’ll be easier if I just reply to one comment, though. πŸ˜›
        Thank you so much! ❀ (I don't know why I keep saying thank you for this, because I have no part in making my accent. But THANK YOU ON BEHALF OF ALL PEOPLE WHO FORMED THE BRITISH ACCENT. *nods*) I really don't know, but…I find American accents so nice too? Actually: I just kind of like all accents,P. THEY'RE ALL SO CUTE.
        Eeep, thank you! *ducks head*

    1. Yeaaah, a lot of people seemed to be getting confused so I just decided to go with that instead of variations of Apple/Taile. (I almost said various variations there. Whoops.) And YES we are name twins yay! *high fives*
      Thank you so much! ❀ *hugs back* It's always so fabulous reading your blog and chatting to you, eep.
      AAH OH MY GOSH IT WAS SOOOO GOOD. I have very long bullet-pointed list of All My Thoughts stored on my phone. THE SET IS SO COOL. I has no idea it was going to be like that! Eponine & Javert in particular were faaabulous. And the live orchestra. *flails* :C
      Yay, I’m really glad you like it! I WAS SO SCARED OF CHANGING IT.

  3. I have to say, though, your header font really is the most gorgeous. What’s it called, I’m wondering?

    Happy blogoversary, and congratulations on all the amazing milestones so far! Looking forward to seeing the fruits of this coming NaNo — on the blog, perhaps ;P And also your poetry, which is flourishing beautifully. I’m delighted to see your vlog — I’m also considering moving into them myself. And thank you very much for the shout out!

    1. Oh, yeah, I was so lucky to find it — It’s called Wanderlust Letters!
      Thank you so much! I’m SERIOUSLY hoping that I have a bit more to show for this NaNo than the last ones. (I’m trying to take it a bit more, well…seriously.)
      Ooh, if you’d like to to then I’d love to see a vlog! πŸ™‚

  4. I absolutely lovelovelovelove your new blog design!! It’s so fun and visually appealing. And congratulations on your blogoversary! That’s a huge milestone – and it was nice to see the face behind the amazing blog posts πŸ™‚

    Just wanted to let you know that I deleted my old blog and created a new one at starrywriteblog.wordpress.com. I’d love if you could follow me on there πŸ™‚

    1. Thank you so much! Ahaha, I was pretty nervous about both the vlog & the new blog design, so I’m really glad you like them.
      Sure, I’ll follow you right away! πŸ™‚

  5. Eeep! Your new design is gorgeous! Your designs always have that playful element, which I really like (I’ll miss the cat tail in the previous design though πŸ˜› ) Anyway, happy blogoversary and congratulations on reaching 400 followers! Also, I really enjoy your vlog; it’s always fun to see how the bloggers are in real life (or, as real as it can get…)
    Thanks so much for the shout out *hugs back* YOU made blogging more awesome too πŸ™‚

    1. Thank you so much! Haha, I do think I need to find some other cat-related design I can put somewhere…
      Yeah, I know writing style can be different to how people act so I think it’s nice to try a different medium.
      You’re very welcome! Thanks so much for being an awesome blogger, and such a lovely person to chat to. πŸ™‚

  6. YOUR DESIGN ASDKLHJ. I love love love the font and the prettiness. Oh, and congrats Eve :’) 200 FOLLOWERS?! *flings balloons and confetti and happiness at you* I really really really need to see the vlog, but my server’s down. So I’ll be saving my reaction to seeing you irl (or through the screen, but that’s as close as it gets, eh? xD ) when I can access YouTube again.

    Oh, and thank YOU for making the blogosphere awesome. OH AND YOU COMPLETED NANO. Finally. I’m getting left behind then. *sniffles* Maybe I can do it this time. Maybe, oh just maybe.

    1. THANK YOU SO MUCH aah! πŸ™‚ Oh, no worries — I hope it gets fixed soon. (Or fixes itself? Or comes back online? LIKE, WHATEVER NEEDS TO HAPPEN.)
      It’s definitely not as impressive as it sounds…like, now I’m scrapping that entire mish-mash of things and starting again, so. πŸ˜› If you do do it this year, then at least be comforted in that I will probably be more frenetic and panicked than you?
