New Posts on My Other Blogs and a Few More Updates

Hey everyone!  I'm home sick from church today with an annoying cold. :}  I realized this morning that I'd told you I would link here when there were new posts up on Jane Austen and Unicorns and on Belle's Bulletins, and I never did.

Tess and Maggie just posted about their Ladies Retreat trip yesterday.  You can read all about it HERE.

Belle has two new posts up.  The first is HERE and the second is HERE.  If you've been following her attempts to work up the courage to sing to her husband over the past year or so, you'll definitely want to read both. :)

This month I'm hoping to do some re-evaluation of my blogging: what works and what doesn't, the best schedule for all three blogs, and that sort of thing.  I also hope to get caught up on my email responses.  I'm dreadfully sorry to all of you who have emailed me in the past couple of months.  Aside from the few emails I happened to read at the right time when I could sit and respond to them right away, I've been horrible at getting back to people.  Please be patient with me...I'll try to get back to everyone as soon as possible.

I've also decided to cancel my Twitter account, which will happen later today.  When I added Twitter, Facebook, and Pinterest at the beginning of this year, it was kind of on a trial basis.  I've found that I'm getting a bit overwhelmed with everything I'm trying to do.  I love Pinterest, so that's staying. ;)  Facebook works much better for me than Twitter at this point, and I don't feel that I have the proper time to invest to make my Twitter account really useful, so out it goes.  I do apologize to my 12 followers there.

You'll probably notice a definite focus this month.  I have a lot of Lalaloopsy and My Little Pony posts that have been accumulating, so I've officially decided that October will be the "Lala-Pony-Palooza" month. ;)  I'll have other posts too, but I'd really like to try to get these posts out.  I had originally thought about doing a week of Lala posts and a week of Pony posts, but to be honest, posting every day is just a bit too much for me right now. :}  So stay tuned for more news on that.

I am also determined to update the "Meet My Dolls" and "Meet My Friends" pages on this blog and the other two.  I've decided that I'm going to move the page with my dolls' personality profiles to "Jane Austen and Unicorns", as that is the character blog (don't tell Maggie I'm talking like this...she'll get all huffy about the fact that I'm talking like I write their blog). ;)  On the "My Dolls" page here on NGU, I'll just have pictures and information about where I got them.  The "Meet My Friends" page on Belle's Bulletins REALLY needs to be updated, as many of you have mentioned, so that's another goal for this month. As you can imagine, these projects will take some time, but I hope by the end of the month to have everything all finished. :)

As (I think) you already know, Belle's Bulletins will also draw to a close this month (although the last few posts may stretch into the beginning of November).  It's been a wonderful journey with Belle and her friends, but she and I are ready to move on. :}  Be sure to stay tuned over there so you don't miss any of the last posts!

One last thing.  I realize that I'm constantly stating what I'm "going to do" on this blog and not necessarily following through with it.  (Nothing is more embarrassing to me than reading back through past posts and finding all the things I said I was "going to do" and realizing that I never did them.) :}  So basically, take this post as "Beast'sbelle's Goals" for the month of October, not necessarily "things Beast'sbelle shall accomplish for sure". ;}

I guess that's about it for now.  Have a wonderful Sunday, everyone! :)

Is your planned novel going to be a children's, young adult, or adult series?

I know the feeling, My blog hasn't had new post up in a while... I honestly don't want Belle's Bulletins to end, her life will always continue though, and plus, some other Disney doll needs to have their hands at successful blogging, ;) Hey, you never know, Emilie might start up a habit of blogging some day. ;)

Abbie,

Hi Anonymous. My plan is to write the series for adults unless I'm directed otherwise. My goal is to write it content-wise so that a YA audience could read it as well. :)

Hi Abbie. I definitely have mixed feelings about letting Belle's Bulletins go, but I just feel that it's time. Who knows? Maybe in the future I'll decide to take it up again, or pass the mantle on to someone else. I just know I have a few too many irons in the fire right now, and I can't keep going like I am. ;)

Are you going to leave Belle's Bulletins open and just stop posting there? Or are you going to delete Belle's Bulletins?

beastsbelle said...

I'll leave it up so people can still read it, but Belle won't post there actively anymore. She has informed me that she'll still respond to comments when she can. ;)

Any updates on your custom Monster High doll?

beastsbelle said...

Well, I managed to break the piece of her neck that holds her head on and break a piece of her back. :{ So that kind of messed up the whole process...

I also need to get more supplies: watercolored pencils, sealants, and more. It may be a while before I finish, and when I do, she'll need a new body. :}

What about tess and maggies blogaversary giveaway

beastsbelle said...

Oh dear, Anonymous...I'll remind them that they still haven't done that. Sometimes things aren't always very organized around here. :} I'll make sure they get that taken care of before the end of the month. ;)

I hope you're feeling better Beastbelle! I loved reading about your trip on Tess and Maggie's blog! Awesome pictures too!

beastsbelle said...

Thanks, OnceUponADollCollection. I'm feeling a little better today. Still have a scratchy throat, but at least I'm not sneezing and blowing my nose constantly. :}

Glad you enjoyed the pics! We had a great time. :)
