Guest Post and Update

Hi there, folks!

It's early as I write this, much earlier than I like my brain to be awake on a Saturday. So if there are typos or illogical thoughts, I give you my weakest apologies. I've been really busy this week, and had very little time to post. I'm a bit disgruntled that I'm out of bed at the moment, actually. I need sleep. Oh well. This might be the only time I have to post today, so I can't really complain.

Anyway, I wanted to let my readers know that this past Wednesday, July 3, I was able to contribute a guest post to one of my favorite blogs, Beneath the Tangles. The post is called Confessions of a Complaining Naruto Fan. I was going to post a link to it the day it came out, but I've been busy having fun with family and friends away from my computer screen. If you wander over there to read it, I recommend sticking around and seeing what else the site has to offer. Charles/TWWK and his co-bloggers have some pretty good material up.

In other news, in case you haven't noticed, Annalyn's Thoughts got a Facebook page a little over two weeks ago! I even made myself a new avatar for the occasion, as you see to the left. I'm not quite ready to switch from my usual screenshot of Lydia to this girl on most sites, but I wanted something I made myself for my blog's Facebook profile picture. I'm enjoying getting familiar with out Facebook pages works as I post and follow other pages.

Also, I've been considering doing a kind of "Throwback Thursday" thing where I feature something I treasure from days past - be it a blog post here, a anime review or blog post from other sites, a comment on an anime I used to love (and maybe still do). I dunno. What do you think?


  1. For the Throwback Thursday thing, rather than reposting old blog posts, perhaps you could write about an anime (or anything really) that you enjoyed (or hated) but that you haven't actually posted about on the site before. Like with my Weekly Ramblings, just sit down for 15 minutes and write.
    It's good because it allows you to share more of the things you like with your readers without burning out any of your will to write(and it feels good because it means you've put up another original post =) ).

    1. Great idea! I'd thought about commenting on an anime from my past, but for some reason, seeing you say it solidifies the idea. Thank you! And 15 minutes is a great time limit, for the very reasons you stated. Now I really want to start... but it's Saturday, and I already put up a post anyway.

      I'm not sure if I want to call it "Throwback Thursday," since that's just a phrase I've seen tossed around social media. Maybe I'll come up with something slightly more original to call it... and possibly choose a different day. I think I'll start this week (though I never like to say "for certain" until it actually happens).

  2. Thank you for the guest post!!! And "Throwback Thursday" sounds like a fun idea! Just don't burn yourself out on posts. :P


CAREFUL! Read the buttons before you click!

Google decided to put a "sign out" button in the spot that some of us expect a "post comment" button. If you accidentally click "sign out," then you will lose everything you just wrote. I've done that several times right here, on my very own blog. Don't be like me. Pay attention to what you're clicking.

Thank you for reading. And thank you for commenting. Every comment puts a smile on my face. ^_^
