Hey Everyone! I am SO EXCITED that it is time for the Biannual Blogathon Bash again! I don’t think that there has been one since the summer of 2014(I checked my archives and that was the last one I had a post for!and I generally participate every time there is one in some way or another! It isn’t too late to sign up if you haven’t yet, you can just check out the site and find all of the information that you might need! There are also twitter parties, mini challenges and a photo challenge you can check out, as well as a facebook group too! You can find new blogs to follow and new friends and get tons of blog work done at the same time- oh and did I mention that there are prizes too?
So in case you didn’t know and you don’t feel like poking around a bit since you are busy participating in the bash, I will do a quick intro about me & my blog,and then a list of things I hope that I can accomplish this weekend!
I was totally going to add some pics in this section but for some reason wordpress isn’t allowing any pics from my camera to be uploaded due to size and i know i have uploaded before so.. 🙁
I am Nichole and I am 31 (32 next month, but lets not dwell on that!) I am Married to David for 8 years (9 this june) we met in January 2007, got engaged in Feb 2007 and Married in June 2007- which is one of those crazy weird tidbits that everyone always loves! I have a cat named Sam who is evil in a fur orange coat who I have had for 6 years and I have a dog named Marley who is my little princess (she’s just heinz 57/mutt- we think she is part terrier but other than that?) who we have had a little over 2 years. If you have time to poke around check out my fur babes page for a cute story about how we got her 🙂
I like all things Pink, Girly-Girl ,wine, headbands (especially the ones with big flowers) blogging (apparently all together I have had 5 domains I think- 3 of which are still active! Taking pics (just bought a cannon rebel t5 for myself for Christmas!) Listening to/Singing along with music (i’m not that great but I have fun!) reading, watching lots of tv (pretty little liars and lots of older shows like the nanny, designing women,etc- oh and I HATE that they cancelled the PLL spinoff Ravenswood- I LOVED IT!)
About Autumn Rain/Me & Blogging
I started “blogging” well before it was ever called blogging! I started out in like 1998/1999 and was doing soap opera fan pages for Another World, Days Of Our Lives, As The World turns, Sunset Beach- etc. I actually just started a site called Vintage Soap which is supposed to be an Another World fan site but will likely turn into some others added on but I haven’t really had time to work on it.
Autumn-Rain was purchased in May of 2010 because it was just a name that fit me and I never thought that one day I would be doing reviews and attending conferences. I know that it is an odd name but I like to be a bit odd. I don’t fit in a niche and I pretty well just blog about daily ramblings and mix in pics and reviews and whatever and it just works for me! I just blog and do everything for myself and try to meet others and have fun along the way- i’m not a big fan of blogging for a professional sort of thing- but that is me personally and I don’t knock those who do- it just isn’t something for me!
You can find me on social media as xxpollypocket pretty well everywhere- you can easily find links to follow the blog and me over on the side bar! my favorite is instagram 🙂 I also own Southern-Belle.net but I haven’t really got a flow for it just yet (and i’ve had it two years but this blog keeps me so busy!)
Goals for Blogathon:
Send out Pitches
Reply to pitches/follow up on pitches
write reviews- i need to at least do 3 but more would be great. I like to mix them in with regular posts so that at least doubles my amount of posts. great weekend for bloagthon because that will make it easier
clean out emails
organize pitches that I have received
participate in some twitter parties
participate in some mini challenges
meet and follow new folks
Do something with Vintage Soap or Southern Belle if I have a chance- anything would be great
and about 500 other things i’m not thinking of right now!
