Well, look at what time it is again! How about that! It's time for another party post to celebrate this blog's 200th entry! Hard to believe that the last one was just in September. In fact, it's almost been exactly six months. Does that mean we'll be having a party post every six months? Maybe! Who cares! More gifs and stat fun! There's also a contest at the end of this post, so stick around!

That's right Pikachu. That's right.

 Since last making a party post, a couple things have changed in this blog. First, which most people probably never noticed, I've stopped mirroring posts at Livejournal. It was just too annoying. Yup. Second, I have over 110 followers! Awesome! I appreciate everyone who takes the time to read my entries and even comment on them. What's the point of talking to myself?

I've also started posting on a more regular schedule, as can be seen on the right. Oh, but you don't care about that. Before getting to contest crap, you're here to read about my wonky-ass stats.

Y'all are creepers.
At the time of posting this entry I currently have over 220,000 views. Now, before y'all go willy-wally on me and start asking me "WHAT'S YOUR SECRET?" and "GURL ADSENSE THIS PLACE UP" I think we should talk about where all (or about 95%) of these views are coming from.

lol gonna just stop there. You can already guess what's going on. Bots love my ass. Either that or I am a god in Latvia and nobody's informed me.
 But nobody actually cares about the bots that plague my place and thus would never click on Adsense ads (crying shame. Because I obviously want to bombard all my human readers with ads.) Nope. Time to check out search terms! There's some really  good ones in here this time!

fantasy maps - 4
how much adco metronidazole to give dogs -2
middle earth tolkien map - 2
powered by phpbb equine science degree - 2
профсоюзное право контрольные - 2
aleah jasmine vancouver escort - 1
animalhentai porn video gallery - 1

I think what gets me is that the last two people searching for those...terms...actually clicked on my damn blog. I mean, what?

I can't. This is not a Vancouver escort hentai blog.
Okay, well, we did. I'll shut up now.

Guess I'll just have to talk about the contest then.

To celebrate 100 posts, I posted a character profile template. Since I have way more followers now, I think it's time to up the ante a bit.

You know, I've been editing a lot lately. I'm kinda tired of critically reading my own stuff. Maybe it's time to critically read somebody else's stuff?

Since I'm poor (and moving abroad. Again.) it's kinda hard for me to have a contest that costs me money at this point in time. So to celebrate 200 entries of Musings of a Procrastinating Author, I'm having a

First 20 pages critique contest!

First drafts, final drafts; original fiction, fan-fiction (although it may help if I know the fandom, eh?); adult, young adult...I'll read it and critique it if you win. The only thing I'll ask for is forewarning of unsettling content, if applicable.

  2. Would very much like to enter! I'll leave links to the proof on the facebook post, if that's okay; I don't like to conflate my various accounts. (This is just the one I had that already had a blogger thing attached to it.)
