Hear ‘ye! Hear ‘ye! The time I moved to WordPress.

Look!! A newbie (sort of)

 I am so happy and thrilled to finally be part of the blogging community. This will be my corner on the internet where I can share my thoughts about.. well, about everything! But mostly about books, of course. If you guys don’t know it already, I’ve been lurking around. Kind of testing the waters? Also, I’ve been  posting my reviews on my Tumblr Blog for awhile now. Five months to be exact. I know, I’m still a baby. I still have a lot to learn about this book blogging thing. That’s actually one of the reasons I want to move.. I think it would be more awesome if I’m intearcting with other book bloggers as well. Blogging is more fun together! That’s what I realized this past few weeks. I mean, yes, i do have  friends and book buddies that I talk to in Tumblr (which is awesome by the way) but I feel like I’ll be more connected if I move to WordPress. WordPress really was my first idea anyway, it’s just that HTML makes me nervous and I know.. it doesn’t make any sense. But anyway, here I am.

But here’s the truth. When I first wrote my first review, I honestly don’t know what I’m doing. All I know is that “I AM GOING TO EXPLODE IF I WILL NOT TELL THE WORLD MY FEELINGS ABOUT THIS BOOK! I NEED TO TELL EVERYBODYYYY!!” But still

Just. like. now. I don’t know what to say anymore. I’m just rambling, I don’t know if you’re noticing it already but before I embarrass myself even more, I would like to thank some people.. It’s a list.

 

  • So first, I would like to thank the Authors that works hard for their stories. If it wasn’t for them, how could I even Fangirl? If any authors is reading this, I just want to say that you’re brave and amazing for doing what you do. As long as you’re  not hurting anybody (except for your reader’s heart and emotions) Then, please, continue being awesome!
  • Next is friends! You know, I always talk about this blogging thing with my friends in real life (I talk a lot) and at first, I said, “I don’t think I have the right to be a Reviewer.” or “Maybe if I made a Blog, it wouldn’t have any readers at all. Only me or my Grandmother (Hello lola!!!)” So, THANK YOU!  My dear loving, beautiful, and caring  friends for telling me that my passion for books and my way of saying how good the book is enough. THANK YOU! STAY FABULOUS!

  • Good grief. That gif is sooo creepy. Anyway, next up is my bookish friends. I’m so happy that I met these people, I might cry. SERIOUSLY. I’M STILL AMAZED THAT PEOPLE LIKE THEM EXIST. Thank you, FAYE (The Social Potato) for being kindhearted and talking to me, replying to my tweets that sometimes, I know, doesn’t even make any sense. (Sometimes, I tweet like I’m drunk. It just kind of happens) Faye is so awesome you guys, I discovered her on goodreads then just started stalking her. I REGRET NOTHING. To Aimee, who is, wow! young at age but very mature and such a funny and intelligent lady, yes I just called you a lady.. To the people who talks to me, yes, they really talk to me! Snob isn’t in their vocabularies! To Amir (ate amir! mehehehe) from Not-So-Literary-Heiresses. And the rest of her crew, Ella, who I envy for knowing how to bake (The Filipina Book Note), Francine, one of my #WayOfKingsRA buddies (FrancineSoleil) THANK YOU. To Dre, who is so fierce and fab and that’s why I envy her also, she’s such a nice human being, always giving wisdom and stuff 😛 (Sporadic Reads) To the riot of a group that I hangout with at Hangouts!! YOU GUYS ARE TOO AWESOME FOR WORDS!

  • And lastly.. Thank you to my life, my love, the one that gives me the power to push through.. THE INTERNET. I cannot even. I just love Internet so much.
  • So yeah, that’s it. My big fat Thank you’sss, from me to you. I feel like I just graduated.
  • And I should probably stop using bullets now,
  • but I’m enjoying it. :p

Since I’m a newbie, here’s some quick and short and random stuff about me:

  • Yay, bullets again!
  • Uhm, this is my FIRST book blog. Like, officially. I’ve had tumblr blogs before but I ended up deleting them because that’s how weird I am. But I’m sticking up with this one. At least, I’ll try. Feel free to shout at me at Twitter if you think I’m slacking up.
  • I don’t cuss. Okay, let me just discuss this a liitle. I don’t cuss but that doesn’t mean I dislike people who do. That’s just stupid. I wish people who think that way would think this kind of thing through. I respect people and I don’t think it’s not that bad to also expect that in return. We all have our own choices and it’s a free country. And for the record, I have lots of friends in real life that looks like an angel but eats and talk like a truckdriver. AND I LOVE THEM. I really hope this confession I made doesn’t gets in the way of me making friends.
  • I’m not really fluent in this language. Honestly, I’m not even good. So feel free to point out to me if I have some grammar/spelling mistakes. I would really appreciate that.
  • I’m a heavy drinker. Of coffee. Seriously, I don’t function without it.
  • I am soooo bad at Math. Until now, I’m still surprised that I finished High School without a failing grade in that subject. I can look really pitiful when I want to, I guess.
  • I like to talk to random people whenever I get the chance to, after all, we all start as strangers.
  • So, HI! 🙂

LOL, that is not short. ANYWAY, I guess that’s it. If you actually took the time out of your life to read all that, congratulations champion, give yourself a pat on the back, you deserve it. And don’t forget

(let’s just pretend that AND in the .gif is a typo)

There’s still A LOT of works to be done. I’ll be transferring my reviews from my TumBlog, you’re probably not interested in all of this, but I have a lot of Blog tours and Reviews coming up. I’ll be updating. 🙂 Oh gosh, I’ll be updating. That’s so funny coming from me since I’m so lazy. BUT I’M REALLY TRYING TO BE RESPONSIBLE NOW. I’ll start lurking around tomorrow. Bombarding people, which is what I do best. THANK YOU EVERYONE, I’M REALLY LOOKING FORWARD TO OUR BOOKISH ADVENTURES TOGETHER.

  1. Oh my God I envy your theme’s commenting. I don’t know if my theme has those name entry field but I hope they do and if it doesn’t I may have to check this theme out. Not that I could make it look good though I suck with backgrounds.

    And hey, nice to meet you and welcome to using free WordPress! Get annoyed by the limitations! Tumblr is definitely better theme-wise in my opinion. So many great theme makers there. But enjoy exploring WP, my favorite function would have to be the ability to copy a post. And while Tumblr may be more interactive, we’re pretty interactive too! Just with discussions though.

    And I love the GIFs you used! They’re perfection.

    1. Look at your pretty banner. And YOU made it. You’re so talented. 🙁 I’m just jealous. Haha!

      Thank you Shannelle for the warm welcome! I’m looking forward to your posts! And I agree with the Tumblr being better when it comes to themes. I feel like a theme-goddess there. Switching every now and then since it’s very easy. WordPress’ different though. I think this’ll be my theme for 74653536 years.

  2. *celebratory hug*
    awesome move and speech!! ^___^ ..now I’m thinking of moving to wordpress too just to stalk your awesome self!!! (but I’m too lazy 😛 )

    1. Rory!! You adorable creature. Thank you so much for being awesome. It’s very contagious. And thank you for accepting my weird self even though I suck at Buddyreading 🙁

  3. Welcome to blogging! I love reading the random stuff about you (do I sound like stalker-ish?). I don’t cuss much either and yes, I don’t like it when people do. It makes them look bad for me.

    1. Eeee :’) I love random stuff. And thanks Irish, for the warm welcome! I’m looking forward to your bookish posts/discussions. Love your blog!!!! 🙁 Sad face, because i’m jealous. Hahahaha.

  4. Oh, Paula! I’ve been waiting ages for you to move out of Tumblr already 😉 Tumblr blogs are good for micro-blogging, but I always had a hard time following reviews there! With this new wordpress site in tow, it would be easier to stalk your updates as well. Welcome to the world of book blogging and I hope you enjoy it in its entirety (the positive and the negative aspects of it… but hey, we’re here to help you deal ;D)

    I cuss a lot when I review negative books. It doesn’t mean I’m like that in real life, though. I just do it for emphasis and to let the reader feel that this certain thing really annoyed me. Plus, it also adds to comical relief. I’m glad to know you don’t judge those who do, because it’s only a form of expression.

    And thank you for the shout-out!! 😀 Glad to be on the list of awesome people!

    Faye at The Social Potato Reviews

    1. Eeeep! Finally. I’ll be on your every post now. Mwahahaha. And of course you’re on the list 😉 Looking forward to more bookish (or/and personal? :P) adventures with you, Faye

      And for the record, even though I wasn’t in WordPress yet, I already feel welcome. Thanks to you guys! I mean, girls! 😛

  5. YES THAT’S AWESOME! I WILL NOW FOLLOW YOU ON BOTH WORDPRESS AND TUMBLR 😀

    I can’t wait to see all your reviews and stuff, especially on this theme. I also use this theme for my personal (which is probably where the link will take you back, ugh sad life, I’m trying to fix that), BUT ISN’T IT COOL?????? I can’t wait to see all your reviews! AND YES THANK THE HEAVENS FOR THE INTERNET.

    I will be lurking and commenting. And we all started as babies once, heck I’m still a baby. BUT WE’RE AWESOME BABIES. But don’t forget to HAVE FUN!

  6. Awwww, I’m so sorry I’m late in this Paula but thank you for the shout out! And Yaaaay! Congratulations to you new wordpress home! And being one of Cristina’s co-bloggers! She is AWESOME. Just remember, if you ever need any help with anything, just give me shout and I’ll help you in any way that I can 🙂

    P.S. Dre is an ate too.
    Hahahaha.

  7. Awww, I started out like that as well Paula! I reviewed the books I read at Tumblr for maybe 3-5 months? Haha, then I decided to go make a blog with a different platform and the rest is history. Don’t worry much about writing a perfect review, let the words flow, and I love a good rant and fangirl post 🙂

    Can’t wait to see more of you 😀 !
