Wow, 1000 views! I know for you big-time blog buffs that might not seem like a lot, but to a teenager who just started blogging in March, it's kind of a big deal. I just want to thank (holds up coffee cup pretending it's an Oscar) my friends, particularly Bambi and Crow for their promotion and inspiration, but also Phoenix, Wolf and Black Sheep for probably refreshing the page 300 times each, just to be nice ;)
I also want to let you all know that I've joined Pinterest. My first pinboard is called "Catherine Ann's Writing-Related Gems" and it's going to be full of inspirational pictures and also links to blogs I enjoy reading, as I think it's really important to share good writing with the world. So if you have a blog or any kind of content, do let me know so I can check it out and "pin" it if I like it. (This is an example of the first five minutes of joining a website when I get thoroughly over-excited, so make the most of it!)
I decided a while ago that when I reached 1000 views, I would hold a competition. I've decided to make it an art contest, because my blog looks quite plain and, as someone who isn't artistic at all, I really admire people who have that talent.
More details will be announced over the weekend, but it's going to be a competition for pictures of any kind, whether it be a painting, drawing, photograph or even collage... anything that can be scanned onto a screen! So get your thinking caps on and artistic muscles flexed, and watch this space for more info. Think about the themes of the blog so far, and what you'd like to see on it.
Hope to see you all again soon!
