Twelfth Night, Act 1, Scene 3
So this is my fiftieth post, and I can’t quite believe ‘Mingled Yarns’ has been running for almost ten months 🙂 Weirdly enough, I’ve also just hit 50 followers, which makes me even happier – people are actually reading the reviews I’ve been putting off schoolwork to do!
So in celebration, I thought we’d have a little party.
First we need some music to create some atmosphere…
(Obviously it had to be Shakespeare-themed – what sort of Bardnerd would I be without t?)
Then maybe some cake; what party is complete without cake?!
And then I’ll introduce you to some of my guests; in other words, just a few of the amazing followers who I love and adore:
Emma, one of my best friends who runs an awesome blogspot blog (I know, boo, hiss!) about everything and anything she thinks about: http://stuffiponder.blogspot.co.uk/
http://beautifulorange.wordpress.com/, one of my especial favourites because not only are his posts interesting, but he comments. Seriously, take the hint guys, I love hearing from you, and I’ll try to comment a lot more myself in return.
Leah, http://ermergerdwerds.wordpress.com/ , who I realise I actually haven’t talked to a lot, but I feel we’ve bonded over a mutual hatred of ‘Jane Eyre’ and ‘Wuthering Heights’ and her posts are always fun.
http://inbetweenthelines1.wordpress.com/, another commenter who not only posts about books, but also my other true love, cake. What more can I ask for?
Tom, a school friend of mine, who never fails to have an opinion, and who expresses it in the nicest way possible. He’s only written one post so far, but I’m hoping for more in the future: http://tomproffitt.wordpress.com/
My English coursework and uni interviews would have severely suffered without http://interestingliterature.wordpress.com/ . Tons of cool facts about different authors and books.
My two super long-time supporters: http://game4learning.com/ and http://lesleycarter.wordpress.com/, who, despite having ridiculously popular blogs themselves, still take the time to like almost every post I’ve ever done. Thanks guys 🙂
And my first ever follower: http://crashandbern.wordpress.com/ Hooray for grammar obsessives!
Plus people who read all the time but don’t have blogs: Sophie, literally the most opinionated person I know, who never fails to make me re-think what I’ve written and make it better and my ex-history teacher Mr Dodd who not only writes countless references for me and edits my personal statements, but also gives me amazing books to read and films to watch so that I have more to blog to y’all about.
If I’ve accidentally failed to mention anyone who has a crazy amazing blog, please please comment below so I can check it out and we can have all sorts of exciting literary discussions. Or any discussions to be honest, I’m not that picky.
