This little ol’ blog turns SIX YEARS OLD tomorrow! And to celebrate, I have done as I promised and filmed my first-ever VLOG! Yikes! (but also… kinda fun…?)
Anyway, the vlog is me answering all of YOUR questions that you submitted throughout November, and since you guys sent in SO MANY awesome questions, AND since only like 2 of them had super simple answers… the vlog has been split up into 4 parts and I will post them throughout the month to make it a little more manageable both for myself and for anyone who bothers to watch them. *grin* This first installment is the longest of the four, because I was still trying to figure out what I was doing. The rest are shorter.
A couple of fun stats I thought I’d share about this blog:
My MOST VIEWED POST to date is Ring Around the Rose: Beauty and the Beast – which was a post I wrote when Five Enchanted Roses was releasing and it answers the questions: What are your thoughts on Beauty and the Beast? And what is your favorite version of Beauty and the Beast?
One of my LEAST VIEWED POSTS is Henry Fairchild and the Montague Caper – which is really kind of a shame because I thought it was pretty clever… I guess it doesn’t have much to do with fantasy, but still… it made me laugh several times when I was writing it. If you haven’t read that particular adventure of Mr. Fairchild’s, go give it some love. I think you’ll be entertained.
Not at all surprisingly, my Most Viewed Post THIS YEAR was the post where I opened nominations for this year’s Least Competent Henchman awards. I… had fun putting together the GIFs for that one.
Well, I guess I’ve stalled long enough, huh? Without further ado… my first vlog. *hides*
And for those of you like me, who don’t enjoy watching videos… here’s a TOC for you, so if there’s a question you just REALLY want to know the answer to, you can skip to that!
