Five things Bloggers Love! ๐Ÿ’›

Hello friends, itโ€™s me! ๐Ÿ’›

I recently saw a blog post that was titled 5 Things Bloggers Love, (link below) and I thought it was super good, but also I felt that there was more to say, so here I am. โœจ

I also feel like the points where geared towards more professional bloggers than bloggers who do it for fun. So letโ€™s hop into it- and non-bloggers, pay attention! Haha!

โœจ๐Ÿ’›โœจ

-leave a long comment๐Ÿ’Œ-

Guys, If you want to make any bloggerโ€™s day 100% times better, leave a long, detailed comment telling us everything you liked about the post. If you really enjoyed the post, donโ€™t just say, โ€œGreat post!โ€ Which gets old or seeing that 12 times a post on average, you could leave that blog post sized comment. ๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚ Iโ€™ve seen this once or twice where it was a literal blog post in the comment section.

-comment on pages๐Ÿ’Œ-

Ooh this never gets old. Anytime I see a random comment on my pages, itโ€™s makes me so happy to know people are actually on my site! ๐Ÿ’›๐Ÿ’› Case closed right?

– tell us how โœจbeautifulโœจ our blog design looks-

Yasss this makes my week, quite possibly my month! So if you know a blogger whoโ€™s having a hard time, just shoot them and email! Tell them their blog is awesome and beautiful, they will always love it!

-Rough Feedback๐Ÿ’Œ-

This may not be for everyone, but if I ever get any harsh feedback, it helps so much! Other then โ€œYou blog is perfect!โ€ it would help to say, โ€œ I think your post should have more length, and to use more proper grammar like โ€˜thoughโ€™ instead of โ€˜thoโ€™โ€ Always helps! The last thing with this point is donโ€™t be mean about it. โ€œYour grammar is awful, try using real words…๐Ÿ˜’โ€ is not helpful! Itโ€™s more so discouraging than helpful.

-showing full support ๐Ÿ’Œ๐Ÿ’›-

Being a blogger is flat out hard sometimes, like getting out blog posts often, dealing with drama, trying to gain more followers, (it doesnโ€™t happen over night, even though it seems like it a lot) or even just having the motivation. And it makes it a lot harder thinking people could care less if they quit. (Iโ€™ve had these thoughts before!) but if you tell them to keep blogging and that they should never quit cause theyโ€™re awesome etc, it will be so easy to keep motivation, and to keep going! Support is basically what powers a blogger! So be generous with it! ๐Ÿ‘โœจ

โœจ๐Ÿ’›โœจ

Thanks for reading this post, and be sure to tell me if I missed anything, or what makes your day as a blogger!

And a huge thank you to everyone who reads and likes my posts, even simple likes just lets me know you care! ๐Ÿฅฐ I promise I will โœจtryโœจ to keep a steady schedule this year!

The Feelings Tag – Thanks Reese!

Helleaux Y’all!

Welcome back to Middle Mary! Since this is the first post of the month, I’ll be doing a tag that I was so excited to be tagged for!

Today I’ll be doing The Feelings Tag! I was nominated by Reese, so give her a big thank you by checking out her blog for me!

Before we get started, I’d just like to say that I have 200 Followers! I can’t thank all of you enough! What to you think I should do to celebrate?

The Feelings Tag

  • Thank the blogger who nominated you and give a link to the blog. – Thank you, Reese! (We’ve actually done a collab together, Two Book I Like VS Two Books I Dislike)
  • Answer the 5 feelings given to you. – How about no? ๐Ÿ˜‚ Ofc, that is why I’m doing this tag…
  • Write the reason in 5 to 6 lines of why does that particular book come under that feeling. – This should be the most painful tag for me yet.
  • Nominate between 5-12 other bloggers. – I’ll do 6, plus if you want to do this tag I’ll add your name.
  • Give your nominees 5 feelings too. – This feels like Inside Out meets is in a book club.
  • Notify your nominees once youโ€™ve uploaded your post. – I already do ๐Ÿ™‚

#1 A Book That Made You Laugh

(Does anyone ever look over to their bookshelf and their just like, “Hmmm..” ๐Ÿ˜‚)

I’m going to have to say Schooled by Gordon Korman โ˜ฎ. It’s about a teenager who was homeschooled by his hippie grandma named Rain (I can remember rain but not the main characters name???), and when his grandma gets into an accident, he has to live with strangers and go to a real school.

Basically the whole book I was either ‘๐Ÿคฃ’ or ‘๐Ÿ˜”’. It’s a really good book and I’recommendnd it ages 12 to 16.

#2 A Book That Made You Mad

I don’t think I’ve ever read a book that I was like, “Arg I hate you book! YOU MAKE ME ANGRY.” *throws book across the room*

BUT, I’m going to have to say Tales of a Fourth-Grade Nothing ๐Ÿข, because I hate this one character. The mom!

She is totally oblivious to her sons’ behavior. The kid is literally destroying the store and she’s all like,

“Oh we just have to let him throw his tantrums, he’s just angry. Sweetie can you please calm down?๐Ÿ˜Š๐Ÿ˜˜”

The woman doesn’t know how to parent. Just saying.

#3 A Book That Lifted Your Spirits

Jacky Ha-Ha. ๐ŸŽญ

A girl who found her love of theater, even though she had a speech impediment, she still overcame it in the end. Love, loss, suspicious people (lol), a daring deed, and a really good role model (I’m so cheesy๐Ÿ™ˆ). I was so happy they had a sequel, which I recently read.

Honestly, if you haven’t read this book, what’s the reason not too?

#4 A Book That Felt Like It Was Written Just For You

Sadly, I haven’t found that book yet.

But, one that came pretty close was Auggie and Me ๐Ÿ’•, because I am so much like Charlotte! I can relate to her so much. She’s like my book alter-ego.

I also love all the different POVs, and a POV from Julian?! I don’t hate him as much since I read it, but I mean, he’s still not all that likeable.

#5 A Book That Was Okay

Slider by Pete Hautman. ๐Ÿ”

I didn’t take away as much as I wanted too, and I felt like the kid just got by on a lucky break. But, it was a good book, and I definitely didn’t hate it. You can read it, and you might take away more, but for now, this book was just okay.

Plus, I really liked the characters. ๐Ÿ˜‚

ALL THE FEELS

– A book that was way too long

– The book in which the movie based on it was better

– A book with the worst characters

– A book in which had the most unexpected plot twist

– A book you used to like, but not anymore

NOMINEES


Life Updates:

I didn’t post last Friday because I got braces!

And since then I’ve gotten pretty used to them, and they don’t hurt to bad, but probably because they have to put more appliances in, like separators or something? ๐Ÿคทโ€โ™€๏ธ

And today marks the day in which there is only FOUR DAYS until Unlocked Book 8.5! So to all you Keeper Fans out there, I AM SO EXCITED! ๐ŸŽ‰

Again, thank you to Reese for tagging me!

If anybody has any ideas of what I should do to celebrate 200 Followers, leave your ideas below! And then my next post, I’ll make a poll, and then once the votes are in we can start celebrating!

Until then!

Take my Improvement Survey

(I would also like to give everyone a four leaf clover on this unlucky day of Friday the 13th. ๐Ÿ€๐Ÿคฃ)

3 Reasons to go from Blogger to WordPress

Heleaux Y’all!

(Where we come from, EAUX makes the ‘O’ sound)

Today, I’ll be sharing 5 reasons to move your blog to the wonderful formatting that is WordPress. I actually had a blogger blog for 4EverAG, until I realized that WordPress was the much better option.

So here I am, three years (?) later, telling you that moving my blog was one of the best decisions I ever made.

And I’ll tell you a bit more about it right after this announcement!

I am re-doing my blog! I’m changing page names, adding more pages, deleating pages, doing a different design, fixing catagories…. So really I’m just renovating. Of course, I’ll be using my own design, Cool Cloud Design CO, to re-do it.

NOW, UNTO THE POST!

img_7674

1. Appearance

One of the main problems I had was with the main design. There wasn’t much to chose from, it was just default, and the main post formatting was uninviting.

I think it’s what bothered me the most is how the backgrounds looked. It kind of looked unprofessional.

Some blogger blogs look nice, but still, difficult to navigate!


img_9569

2. Notifacations

This is very frustrating. If someone comments on my post, if someone likes my post, someone liked a comment, replied to a comment, or followed my blog, I would have to look at the blog and check, but with wordpress, it’s easily handled with using the handy-dandy notifacation center.

That pink dot on the bell lets me know everything I need to know. ๐Ÿ™‚ And I don’t even have to move from the site. Who wants a billion tabs open?


img_6982

3. Sleek and Simple

One of the other things I like about WordPress is how it is so easy to operate! I can get wherever I need to go with just a few clicks of a mouse. While with wordpress you have to suffer through the painful search for, “What on earth is a favicon?!” or, “Why is the favicon to small?!”

It’s very confusing.

I love how sleek everything is, it’s like I can glance to the right and see how many views I got. Simple to read too!

That’s all I have for today, Thank you so much for reading and be sure to check out my latest post, Mแƒง Dษพาฝฮฑษฑ Bาฝิƒษพฯƒฯƒษฑ. 

I also I need some advice! Should I still do feathers, or no feathers?

Stay classy,

Top 10 Disney+ Recommendations

Hello Dumplings!

Today I’ll be sharing my favorite Disney + shows and movies, because whenever you’re scrolling through looking for something good, and you end up watching Bambi.

Don’t get me wrong, I love all the classics. But they tend to get a little old whenever you’re watching them every other night.

So I am here with my Top 10 Recommendations.

Lets get started!


Movies:

Onward | Disney Movies

Guys, this is my new favorite movie.ย 

I could go on and on about it, but here’s the bottom line,

THIS IS A MUST WATCH!ย 

Amazon.com: Frozen 2: The Official Movie Special Book ...

So, I was actually anticipating this movie ever since February 2019. A long time to wait for a movie.

So as soon as it came out on Disney+, I had to watch it. (It was Febuary 2020 when I first watched it. Plot twist lol)

I love the songs almost as much as the original! I think I might like Frozen 2 better than the first.

You must watch this movie!

 

Amazon.com: BIG HERO 6 MOVIE POSTER 2 Sided ORIGINAL FINAL 27x40 ...

Oh my gosh, people.

I have no words for the amazingness of this awesome movie.

If you have Disney Plus, stop reading this post and watch this movie.

Like, now!

Why are you still here??

High School Musical (TV Movie 2006) - IMDb

Ahhh! So clichรฉ I know but….

The songs are probably the only reason I like this movie honestly. And in my Quarintine Fever, I’ve been dancing along.

STICK TO THE STATUS QUO OH OH OHH OH OH OH OH

(I’m cool I swear.)

Lady and the Tramp (2019 film) - Wikipedia

*Smiles* This movie was so stinking SWEET.

I absolutely adore this movie so much. The characters, the actors, the sript….

Watch it, and when you do, come and thank me for making your life better.

Muppet Movie' Blu-Ray Arrives on Tuesday

No, I’m not kidding.

This movie is so funny, so entertaining, and over all, has great songs. Trust me, you’ll laugh out loud whenever you watch this, guaranteed!

Series:

Big Hero 6: The Seriesโ€”Technology is Unbeatable - Comics by comiXology

With sadly only one season, this series was almost as good as the orginal.

It was so funny, so relatable, and like the movie, it took entertainment to the next level.

Its a great show to watch with your younger siblings, or just by yourself. But make sure to have plenty of popcorn, because it’s going to get crazy.

Girl Meets World (TV Series 2014โ€“2017) - IMDb

Potter Puppet Pals Wizard Angst GIF - Find & Share on GIPHY

*smiles evilly* Guys, this show. โค

Is for you, and your eyes only. Because you don’t want to start bawiling your eyes out in front of your siblings.

*cries just thinking about it*

With only three seasons, it feels like it goes on forever, and that you know all the characters by heart.

And now my heart hurts.

Petition ยท Netflix: Put Suite Life of Zack and Cody and Suite Life ...

I had to put both posters, because they are two different series based on the same characters.

Guys, this series is the funniest of them all. It has like, the best ships, the best characters, the best of the best.

Please watch it, I’m begging you.

Jessie (TV Series 2011โ€“2015) - IMDb

RIP Cameron Boyce *triggers international sobbing*

Jessie is a super sweet show, and perfect for the sibs and you to watch.

It’s an amazing show that makes me sob every time I watch the last episode. The characters are so original, and the script is so perfect, it kills me.


That is all for this post, I hope you enjoyed reading it as much as I did making it!

If you don’t have Disney+, then I would highly recommend getting it, because it is so worth it right now.

Peace out homies!

Your Assumptions About Me + Answers Edition

Hello Dumplings!

Today I will be posting your assumptions about me and answering them. I think this turned out pretty great honestly! I really enjoyed reading them, and I know this will also be awesome!

Let’s read on!

*marches away but then realizes I need to continue the post*

From Libby Loo:

Your favorite color is Pink.
and
Youโ€™re probably going to end up having three children and some kind of small pet when youโ€™re older.

Swipe Right Yes GIF - Find & Share on GIPHY

My favorite color is rose-gold, but you are correct!

I can’t answer that last one, but yes, those are my plans! Well, maybe two golden retrivers named Barley and Fern. But if I can’t have dogs I’ll have a cat named Boo. (I just came up with that and I love it lol)

From Raegan:

You want a horse farm when you grow up.
You are good at photography.
You are artistic.

A horse farm…โ€ฆ Hmmmmmmmโ€ฆ.. Lets add that to the list! (yes, I have a list.)

Am I good at photography? I mean, I think I am but I’m not super sure….

Is it weird that I see colors when I listen to music? It’s like my mind is Fantasia when I listen to music. Bet yes, I do get artistic kicks.

From Beckwith407:

you will not โ€œLikeโ€ like this comment.

I did like your comment!

From Chalice:

You are homeschooled.
You would love to travel somewhere.
You want to learn French.
When life gives you lemons, you make lemonade.
You donโ€™t like pineapple.

Girlllll you only got one wrong. Well 1 ยฝ.

Yes, I am homeschooled. Just because I don’t go to public school doesn’t mean I don’t suffer in quarantine. Ha.

I would love to travel to an exotic destination and eat pineapple. (Yes, I like PiNeApPLe)

I would love to learn French! Merci Chalice!

I don’t really know how to answer that. I mean, life gives me lemons, I intend to make lemonade, but they sometimes go missing…

100 Christmas Gifts -:Day One:-

Hello! With the nearing Christmas season, it’s a little hard to know what to get someone. Especially if they already seem to haveย everything.ย Anything you pick up they probably already have one.ย  It seems like there’sย nothingย new. Or maybe it’s that they are really picky. And you can’t findย anything. All the sites you look at seem to only have junk that no one really wants.

Well here’s news for you.ย I’ve done it all Christmas shopping for you.ย 

Every day until December 16th I will post 10 Christmas Gifts a day. 10 genres.ย And since I know there are boys on that Christmas list too, I willย have to include them too.

So without further ado, the first genre,

Makeup Lover. She loves makeup, and she loves all things sparkly! (Sometimes) This is also good for any older sister you might have or a younger sister who is just starting out with Makeup.

 

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

So? What do you think? Do you have any makeup lovers in your family? What should the next genre be?

Comment Below My Friends!

And check out this gift guide as well!:

Hannah Snoke

And remember, no matter what you get them they are still going to love because it came from the heart. And they’ll also know that the greatest gift of all was given, and gift that money couldn’t buy.

Cheers to 2,000 years! XD

First Day Of Fall Pool Party!

Well hey again. How long has it been?

I can’t see why it’s not cold yet. At least the Leaves are falling. Don’t you think it should be at least 76? Maybe even a rough 80?

NOPE! The Louisiana first day of fall pool party! Welcome to home sweet home, where it’s always burning up outside! But whenever you want it to be hot, it gets COLD!

The weather forecast for today, a whooping 86!

I don’t understand. Maybe if I lived in Florida, it would be nice.

BUT THIS IS Louisiana!! It’s always SWELDERING!

Hey wanna hear something funny? Last night I had a dream it was Christmas. When really, it was only the first day of fall. My mind is on the Moon. Check back later!

But ya know, things don’t always turn out the way we want them to. And guess what else? I checked the weather for Christmas, and you know how hot it is suppossed to be? A nice 63. Not 50, not 40, BUT 63!

I’m waiting on Christmas pool party. That would be…..

Weird.

This was taken in the middle of summer.

You know what would be AWESOME? Thanksgiving in the smokies.

And your all like, YASSSS. Freezing cold outside, hot coco, Snowball fights with the siblings. *sigh* how nice.

BUT NOOOOO. IT HAS TO BE 68!

Now, don’t get me wrong I love the cold dewy mornings, and the pumkin patch, and playing football. And the Thanksgiving day parade.

Know that I think about it, I wouldn’t rather be anywhere else with my family on thanksgiving. And that is what really matters.

I’m going to ask Mom if we can a huge cabin in the smokies for the WHOLE family. (Cousins, Aunts, Uncles, MawMaw PawPaw)

Peace Out!

I’m kidding! Although that would be an awesome idea.

Of Course You… // A Rant
