Beach!!!

Right now me, Kat, my grandparents, my aunt, my uncle, and my cousins are on our yearly trip to Ocean City, NJ. 🙂 I L-O-V-E the beach, if you haven’t found out already from an earlier post. Today we stayed there for four hours! I probably haven’t wrote in a while because last week I went to an overnight camp and I didn’t exactly have any computers out there. 🙂 Anyway, I know exactly what’s going to happen this week: time’s going to go by too fast. Summer’s going by too fast. Soon I’m going to go back to school. Ugh. 😦 More tests, more exams. Whatever, I’m going to try and NOT think about school. Got to go!

New Puppy to Post About!

Here are some pictures of our new puppy, Cookie! A Boston terrier dachshund mix, and she weighs only 3.5 pounds! She was the smallest puppy in the store we went to, and the only one with spots. Cookie loves to sleep on anyone. I figured out that even though Cooper cuddles with me, Cookie would be the more likely one to fall asleep on you. It’s SO cute! Right now I’m typing with one hand, because if I just put her in my lap she would come right back into my arms. 🙂

The Land of 100 Posts

Here’s a post from 20four12.wordpress.com that I found on Freshly Pressed. I thought it was a very well-written post so I wanted to share this with everyone, even if almost everyone in WordPress read it. 🙂

20four12

Like a lot of people, I tried several times before I figured out the blogging thing. There are the remains of about half a dozen blogs out there somewhere from my failed attempts, but with 20four12 I’ve finally managed to figure out the winning formula for me and my blogging style. Reaching 100 posts (which happened a couple of days ago) was a huge milestone for me and I can’t put into words how excited I was to realize I had finally made it to that mark. I’m fairly certain I never even made it to 20 posts on any other blog.

WHAT I’VE LEARNED SO FAR…

First and foremost, the biggest lesson I’ve learned is you have to make goals for blogging and stick to them because otherwise you will find yourself drifting along trying to find some sort of direction you want to take your blog. The goal…
