I Try The 100 Word 100 Day Blog Challenge

I found this meme the other day and it was really interesting (I thought!) so I’ve decided to try it. Apparently what you do is write down a list of 100 random words and then in the next 100 days you write a post about one of the 100 words. This is going to be……interesting.

Inside The Junk Drawer’s First Blogoversary! :D

Well, today is Inside The Junk Drawer’s first birthday!

Welcome to the party. We have chocolate cake, fruit punch, and vanilla ice cream.

It seems a lot of the blogs I follow/read/really like have all had blogoversaries lately. (Well, maybe not all of them. But a lot!)

I remember just setting this blog up. I wanted another blog where I could just write about anything. I thought it would be fun! I was right! 😀 I had a hard time finding a good URL, though. I finally settled on weirdalocity.wordpress.com, hoping my readers could spell it. The title, subtitle, and widgets have changed over the one year that I’ve been here. I think the title has gone over seven changes. The theme changes number at least over twenty. I do enjoy playing with those themes. 🙂

Last year, I was an inexperienced blogger, and not officially a “teen” yet. You can tell I had a hard time finding stuff to blog about. Look here and here. You are free to laugh-I did. (Gosh, I was downright terrible!) You can tell that I had no idea what, how, or when, or where to blog. Hopefully, you think I’m better than I was a year ago. I remember writing that second post. It was my first official post, and I really didn’t want to watch the show, so I said to myself, “Oh, I’ll just blog instead!”

I really enjoy hitting the “Publish” button and knowing my work is out soaring through the Internet, reaching the 22 subscribers I have garnered through one year. I know that a few of those readers and subscribers will read it. They will like it. They might comment. I’ve got a goal for Inside The Junk Drawer’s second year in existence. Comment more! I know a few other bloggers have done it, Miriam Joy and nevillegirl for starters. It’s easy and makes me feel happy. So please try. If we all commented more, the blogosphere would be a happy place with lots of comments. The more, the better! 😀

 

Enough rambling. Here come the thank-yous, in no particular order.

  1. To wreakinghavoc14, for being my first subscriber. I hope you’re not drowning in high-school homework. Here’s a robot to do your homework for you.
  2. To Nerdygirl98, for leading me into the wonderful world of TCWT. Here is a lifetime supply of patterned duct tape for you.
  3. To Teens Can Write, Too! for teaching me that teens can write, too! And creating the blog chain, which is a monthly part of my life. Here’s a paragraph about you: TCWT is AWESOME. I love TCWT. I have no idea where in my writing life I would be without TCWT.
  4. To Allegra Davis and John Hansen, for hosting TCWT, at one point or another, and for both having awesome writerly blogs. Here’s a box of writerly awesomeness for you both.
  5. To Shonti, for being one of the few people I know in real life with to read this blog, and for co-hosting Brains! with me and putting up with my weirdness. Here’s a giant box of Hunger Games stuff for you.
  6. To nevillegirl, for making me laugh with your awesomeness/weirdness/writing. I like your blog. Maybe someday mine will be as awesome as yours. Here’s Dobby the house-elf and Hermione J. Granger’s Guide To House-Elves.
  7. To Miriam Joy,  for writing one of the best writing blogs I know of, and writing this post, which I totally love. Here’s the biggest library in the world, with lots of books/CDs/whatever you want.
  8. To WordPress, for letting me have a blog in the first place. Here’s a rating of WordPress: Amazing!
  9. To Chaperone2, for co-hosting Brains! with me and lending me your Maximum Ride books. Here’s a zoo.
  10. To Jeyna Grace, for writing awesome fanfictions, etc.  about the Hunger Games and Harry Potter. Here’s J.K. Rowling to write more Harry Potter books for you.
  11. To Mike, for making me laugh. Here’s the most complete zebra encyclopedia ever written.
  12. To Lily, for writing about frying pans, a very under appreciated subject. Here’s a make-your-own-battle-frying-pan kit.
  13. To everybody else for reading/liking/subscribing/whatever and whoever is reading this right now. Here’s some rubber chickens and chocolate.

So thank you!

It’s been one interesting year, and the next one is sure to be just as interesting(or possibly more interesting! 😀 )

A Pretty Poll For You!
