Thank you to Sophie from Sophie Speaks Up for nominating me for this challenge! I always get nervous when I type the name of a blogger on my blog, in case it’s the wrong name. Especially when they’ve nominated me for something. Gosh, it would be so embarrassing if I got it wrong… So, in the hopes of preventing a potential faux pas, I always go onto the person’s “About” and check about five times just to make sure that I’ve read their name correctly.
In this case I can assure you that Sophie’s full name is Sophia Katharin, or Sophie Kat for short. See, I’ve done my homework. Hehe. Now it will be REALLY embarrassing if it actually turned out that it wasn’t her that nominated me, and I’d just innocently clicked on some other blogger’s “About” that was open in a tab on my computer… The idea of the situation is making me shiver with fear and humiliation. Gosh. Please. Be. Sophie. You did nominate me for the challenge, right?
See, that’s another thing I worry about – that I wasn’t nominated for the challenge. LOL. And it’s okay that I used the word “LOL” here, despite it being a drastically informal and typically-teenage-girl word, because I literally laughed out loud. Yes, alone in my room, with my computer in front of me, I laughed at the screen. ALOUD. So, LOL it is, if it turns out that I haven’t been nominated for this. Haha. I laughed again. In real life. Like, imagine if I’d just read someone’s post and then convinced myself that it had linked to Thisizapen. Self-Nomination. Hah!
I don’t know WHY I find that so funny. It just makes me laugh imagining it!!
SHUT UP Jamila and get ON with this thing.
Okay, yeah, I am.
No, you’re not, you’re procrastinating.
That’s because you’re making me.
No, you’re making me.
Here are the rules for this:
1) Copy-paste, link, pingback or whatever way you want to, your first post.
2) State what type of post that was. E.G. Introduction, Story, Poem.
3) Explain why that was your first post.
4) Nominate 5 other bloggers. Five because I know the pain of opening a lot of tabs at once.
Obviously I copy-and-pasted them because I couldn’t be bothered to try to re-word the rules 🙂
Here is my first post (Go read it now
if you want to live):
I wrote that as an introduction to my blog, listing my interests so that people who liked similar things could follow me. Just to make it clear, NO, I did not think that Nirvana was a heavy metal band; I listed the fact that I liked Nirvana separately to the fact that I liked learning about Heavy Metal. So, no connection between them. I like Nirvana, which is GRUNGE and I also like learning about Heavy Metal bands.
That post actually got ZERO likes, despite me tagging it! I’ve also noticed that I didn’t use capital letters for each word in the title. That makes me uncomfortable.
I made “What this blog is about” my first post to give people an idea of what I would be writing about. Obviously I could have just done that in my “About” – but that wasn’t good enough for me; I was young and reckless then. I liked to live fast; I wanted to die young. Aah, good times, good times. But them days are over now. And, like I said, I made that my first post so that people with similar interests would find it and follow me.
My second post, Reasons You MUST Go To Stonehenge On The Solstice had precisely TWO likes. It took me ages to write… I wrote it last year when I’d just got back from Stonehenge on the Summer Solstice for the first time. Unfortunately my dad won’t take me there this year… However YOU still have hope! Go now, my child, complete your destiny, before it is too late! XD
