#FridayReads – The Robin War

Now I’ll admit that I read this on a Saturday, but it was with the specific intent of writing this post. So, because of other prior commitments, I will be spending the whole week writing this post, and it should be ready for Friday. Please be warned, this post is going to get quite a bit spoilery.

First thing’s first, I love Robin. I have a special place in my heart for Dick Grayson, I think Damian Wayne is an absolute beast, and I happily subscribe to We Are Robin. When I was first made aware of the Robin War, I was under the impression that Damian Wayne was coming back to Gotham to take out all of the other Robins because they were being financed with Damian’s inheritance. Turns out, that’s not what the Robin War is really about, but can you imagine if it was? The whole of Gotham would be razed. Damian does not play that.

Anakin Skywalker Never Had a Chance

Originally written for Fandom Following.

I don’t know if I’ve said it before, but I am an Anakin Skywalker fan. Not Darth Vader, Anakin “Creeper Stance” Skywalker. Don’t get me wrong; I don’t absolve him of any of his crimes. Anakin Skywalker is a murderer, wife-abuser, and the cause of the downfall of the Jedi Order, these are things I will never deny. However, I’ve come to realize that it was inevitable that Anakin would go to the Darkside. Even without knowing that he would eventually become Darth Vader, it’s plain to see that Anakin never stood a chance.

Day Fourteen – Extend Your Brand

So like, originally, when I read today’s email, I thought it was too early for me to do any branding. I mean, yea, I’ve gotten to fifty followers (Thanks guys!), but I’m not really known, you know? Who’s really interested in a lifestyle blog written by a random fangirl who hasn’t quite nailed down her regular posts? A couple of friends and some mutually following bloggers, that’s who.

Again, thank you all.

Day 11 – Your Learning Style

Learning Style

So Day 11’s task was to find a personalized prompt, and the daily prompt on WordPress’ daily post seemed to work just fine for me.

So, as a teacher you are taught that there are many different kinds of learners. Although everyone can be grouped into something like 8 different categories, no two people are going to learn things exactly the same. As a teacher, you are expected to experiment with how you present a lesson in order to find the technique that best maximizes your students’ potential to understand, execute, and retain whatever is being taught to them that day. You aren’t going to catch everybody, but, once you’ve gotten that first set sorted, that’s more time to help the individuals who need some extra help.

I haven’t written a post in about ten days, according to my stats. The funny thing about it is that I literally have a calendar full of days when I’m supposed to publish different types of posts. Technically, I have done the post that was scheduled for earlier this week, but it went to another blog entirely. I was quite serious when I said I run other blogs. In fact, I’m going to take the time to talk about one of them today.

Day 4 – The Ideal Reader

I decided to rewrite this post because the first draft kind of derailed. It happens. I tend to write just to write these days. I really should get back to my NaNoWriMo story, but that’s neither here nor there.

I know who my readers are: fangirls, fanboys, my WordPress followers, and nosy TurkCaicians. The last two groups are inevitable because you need WordPress followers to survive on WordPress, and I myself am a nosy TurkCaician who allows her posts to show up on Facebook. However, the first two groups? I kinda identify with them.

So the Day 3 topic for Blogging University – didn’t I tell you I was doing that? – was to build your blogging community by going out and reading other blogs. You would then like said new blogs, and follow 5 that really stood out to you. Sounds simple right? Sure.

That didn’t work out so well for me. Here’s the thing: I’m not all that great with WordPress tags. Tags on Tumblr are easy for me. I know the specific thing that I want, I type it into the search bar, and BOOM! Millions of results for me to look through. Most of the time I’m looking for fan stuff and people who ship my favorite ships, so Tumblr works pretty damn well for people like me. WordPress? Not so much.

5 Reasons to #RenewMinorityReport

As someone who was very taken with the show, Minority Report, it will come as no surprise to anyone that I took the time to write a list of reasons as to why it should be renewed. I absolutely adored the ten episodes that we did get, but I’ll always wonder about the things that we were forced to miss out on after the season order was cut. So, in the off chance that the show is renewed or picked up by another network, I have compiled a list of things that the fans loved and need to be further explored going forward.

The Reason Why We Sing

“Someone asked the question, why do we sing? When we lift our hands to Jesus, what do we really mean?”

Hi! My name is Courtnee Eurydice Howell, and this is my blog.
