(BEDM* is my attempt to blog each day of May – just to see if I can.)
Oh noes! I wrote my post yesterday – I swear I did!! – but then got interrupted, saved it as a draft and… and… forgot to post it. O.o Does that mean I FAIL at Blog Every Day May?
No, it does not. (I make the rules here!) Let us just pretend that, right now, it is Friday. Here is my Friday blog post. *has shifty eyes* Later today there will be the Official Saturday Post, and then we’ll be back on track. ‘Kay? 😉
Today has been a busy writing day. I have been writing my essay on The Vampire Diaries for SmartPop books. I know I talk about this a lot, but honestly… I am so unbelievably excited that I get to write about one of my favourite TV shows – and get paid for it – it just boggles my mind. Srsly(tm). Here, let me post the pretty cover again, just because I can (I’ll shut up then, I promise *g*):
I’m having a Francesca Lia Block fangirl moment or two. How gorgeous is this cover?
This is Pretty Dead, which came out in hardback last year. I hope it’s released in paperback soon!
Ms. Block also has a gorgeous blog, Love in the Time of Global Warming…
…which is where I found out about this beautiful site, Bliss by Jacqueline. I could spend waaay too long scrolling through the stuff on her blog. This photograph is pretty, but it also sums up how I feel about my life right now:
I have fallen in love with Mel’s Curiosity Shoppe – check out the beautiful charm bracelets (and everything else) on her site. The prices are ridiculously reasonable. And I totally adore the Nancy Drew range, appropriate that I found these when this year we’re celebrating eighty years of everybody’s favourite strawberry-blonde amateur sleuth:

I might’ve *cough* ordered something… 😉
Finally, I loved this video that I first saw on the always awesome HipWriterMama‘s blog:
