An Explanation In Which I Bluff A Bunch

*waves awkwardly* Well, er, hi. Yes, this is Helen. Yes, she has returned from the dead. Yes, her blog looks really odd now. Yes, she is a certified psycho who is incredibly indecisive and can't choose between designs.

The truth is, though no one really cares, I am a fledgling blogger who is bad at accomplishing stuff. I see blogs that went like, "Oh I was only about a month old and had only a couple hundred followers but I still got ARCs and cool swag from publishers BUT YOU SHOULD BE AT LEAST SIX MONTHS OLD." HAHAHAHAHAH I am six months old and I have like 1 follower. (Hey, better than 0!)

Also I am very good at wasting time. I just get on Pinterest or Tumblr or Twitter or Wattpad and spend lots of time doing stuff. I don't even know what I do. I just WASTE TIME. URGH. THE CURSE OF THE SOCIAL MEDIA. Also I waste a lot of time obsessing over what my blog looks like, and it doesn't even matter because it's the content that should be obsessed over. URGH. HELEN WHY ARE YOU SUCH AN IDIOT. You guys be like:

Oh well. Bear with me, please. I'm working on multiple reviews right now (We Are The Ants & The Forbidden Wish), and both books are AMAZING books (because I don't review books that I don't like because I frankly have nothing to say besides cussing it out a bunch XD) so it's incredibly hard to do justice to them. *sigh* #TheStruggleIsReal (Edit: Lady Midnight TOO! At this point, it'll probably be a series of mini-reviews)

Also, this IS totally a filler post because I feel I haven't been posting even every other week! And that feeling sucks, because I know I have a LOT to put into this blog, and I really really really want it all to work! My brain constantly goes, "HELEN. NEW IDEA. PUT IT OUT NOW." Then I lack the motivation to actually push through and make an actual POST about it. There's just SO MANY! And I'd love to have discussions, but those would probably flop because I don't have followers? Or many people that come by here regularly? AND I TOTALLY WISH I DID. URGH. I also hate that new readers will have to see this post when they come... ANYWAY.

The point is, a total bookish related post is coming up! And I don't want you to think that I've died and fallen off a cliff and then the blog died too! Don't worry. If you're here, I LOVE YOU.

    HELEN I FEEL YOU. I'm still not 100% satisfied with my blog, and I feel like I should have more followers than I do after two whole years of blogging. :-/ I remember feeling really discouraged after six months of blogging, but what really got me back into the groove was making new friends and venturing onto other blogs! (By the way, if Blogger is hard at finding similar blogs, I luurrrvvveee bloglovin.com)

    And I KNOW what you mean. I have soo many different internet personalities, ha! I thought I was the only one! It depends on what social media I'm on that makes my personality. It's like all of them are a part of me, lol. I'm glad to hear I'm not alone. ;)

    1. Aw! THANKS SO MUCH! (by the looks of it, Wordpress didn't work ugh google comments)

      Bloglovin is a big help! I love making new friends and finding fabulous new blogs but sometimes I feel like I should be doing MORE.

      The Internet kind of forces you to be the kind of person that that platform is good for! On Twitter, I just cram as much randomness as I can into 140 characters! On Tumblr, I'm just overcrazed fandom trash. On here, I feel like I can be more of myself! That's why I started a blog!

  3. Pinterest is such a drain! WHERE DOES THE TIME GO?!?

    "I also hate that new readers will have to see *this* post when they come..." -- I FEEL THIS SO MUCH. I'm always terrified that my particular post I'm posting will put everyone off! Posts just never feel perfect. And then I have to remind myself to find my freaking chill because it's my blog!

    But worry not because this post made me smile XD

    Thanks for stopping by Ink, Inc.! I responded to your SS queries :)
