Summer '17 Vlog // Giveaway Winner + Book Haul
(We're just pretending that this was posted on Thursday, not Friday. Okay? *quietly backs away*)
Greetings, bookdragons of the internet! Today I bring tidings of great joy!
...Or sorrow, depending on how much they like seeing your face.
*glares at Lieutenant Bradshaw* As I was saying, today I'm bringing you all a vlog! It's been a long time since I've done one, so I thought it would be a nice change.
Actually, you're wrong. It would be a horrible change.
Just...stop. You always ruin everything.
Well, excuse me for speaking truthfully here. I wasn't aware that freedom of speech didn't exist on your blog. Though I guess it's not much of a shocker really.
WILL YOU PLEASE BE QUIET? *sighs* Just ignore Lieutenant Bradshaw, everyone. He's rather annoying at times.
Someone has to make it more interesting around here, you know.
Back to my original thought. *taps chin* Oh! Yes! The vlog! It's been about 9 months now since I've recorded a vlog, and I just spontaneously decided to do one at midnight.
I mentioned last week that nobody actually guessed the two lies for my 10 Truths and 2 Lies challenge...buuuuut I decided I was going to pick a winner anyway. I put everyone's names in a hat, shook them around, and picked the person lucky enough to receive a prize.
I think the correct term is unlucky.
I'm just pretending you don't exist.
Go ahead and ignore reality. That's one of your best skills anyway.
*sighs angrily* What are you doing here, anyway? You should be sitting in the unstarted draft of a sequel.
Ahh, so you are writing a sequel? This is news to me.
It depends how well you cooperate. If you don't shut up, I might just never continue your story.
Eh. I could care less.
Or I could kill you in the first chapter of the sequel. Whichever you prefer.
*grumbles* All right, evil author. You win.
*victorious smile* Thank you.
Now before the world's most annoying lieutenant decides to appear again, I should get onto the vlog. I drew the name of the giveaway winner (YAY!!) and rambled on about books I've purchased/borrowed/received for review lately. SO YEAH. This is just me being random essentially.
Um. Hopefully that wasn't too bad?
Don't worry, it was.
Go. Away. Right. Now.
*clears throat and steps out of room*
I hope that you at least partially enjoyed the vlog! I know I rambled quite a bit, haha. I promise there will be a Realm Makers recap post coming soon! (But maybe not a Camp NaNo recap post. All you really need to know is that I lowered my goal--again--to 10k. And I reached it! YAY! This is kind of a big deal since I had such a crazy month in July. *shrugs*)
ALSO. I'm having issues with spam bots subscribing to my blog. Anybody ever had that happen? I'm trying to figure out a way to add a CAPTCHA to the "subscribe by email" gadget. Or to completely change out that gadget and replace it with something else. Basically, I need tech help. Please. XD
I also wanted to let you know that I'm not sure how frequently I'll be blogging for the unforeseeable future. I want to blog, but I just feel like the quality of my posts isn't what it should be. I don't know. I may be posting less frequently, I may not. WE'LL JUST HAVE TO SEE. But I really really really want to reply to your comments and produce good posts. So that will probably become the priority in the next few weeks.
But hang tight! 'Cause I've got some cool posts headed your way soon. ;)
Now all you have to do is stop talking. Then we can get peace and quiet.
I swear, if you say one more snarky comment, I'm going to start plotting your tragic death scene.
Sometimes I really hate you.
