I'm Getting Smarter (Theoretically)

No Have Bus, Will Travel post this week or next week (unless I have a few minutes to go take pics along our "home" route), because I'm taking the GRE next Wednesday and I'm doing my best to devote every spare moment to prep. (I've no idea if the GRE is used outside North America, so if you're confused: It stands for Graduate Record Exam, and it's the baseline exam for getting into graduate school. I kinda want a good score.) So this post, as well as every other one over the next week, is scheduled ahead of time.

So, I'm going to take a moment to do some blog housekeeping. First of all, WELCOME to all new followers! I think most of you are from the Writer's Campaign, and I'm delighted to meet you. If you're in Adult Fiction #3 or Chick Lit #1, I should have come round to visit and follow you already, and you are safely tucked into my blogroll labeled "Write Campaigners" in the sidebar. If you're missing, or you don't recall seeing me at your blog, please do let me know so I can rectify this mistake! Also, if you have a WordPress blog, WordPress hates me. I'm may be in your spam folder-- a few visitors have already told me they found me there and have set my comments free. I don't know what it is about me that upsets WP so much, but I tried everything I could think of-- making my name longer, leaving off my blog address, signing in with Twitter or Facebook-- and I still couldn't get WP to believe that I was legit. Sigh...

Also, I'm closing in on 300 followers, 1000 posts, and my seventh blogversary. (Yes, you'd think I could manage more than 1000 posts in seven years. Well, I took a year off.) So, I'm planning some sort of bash. I don't know what yet, but we'll get there in the end. So, look for that coming up around the end of September!

So, how about you? Anything interesting going on?

Good luck on your GRE! I took it for grad school and did awful. Thankfully my graduate program didn't care what my score was. Celebrate a little afterwards!

Nothing interesting going on here. Good luck on your GRE's. I bet you'll do great.

@Mary: At least one of the programs I'm applying to doesn't require the GRE. Here's hoping; I really want to stand out/appear fabulous/look admittable/whatever.

@JE: Aren't you under 5 feet of water or something? And thanks for the good vibes!

Best of luck with the exam ... and then all the 'smartening up' afterwards

All the best for your GRE. Fancy that many blog posts! Seems only yesterday you arrived on the blogging scene. All success to you.


Myne Whitman said...

Congrats on your followers, I'. glad to be one of them :)

But 1000 posts! wow, lol. I'll be looking forward to the bash, it's well deserved.

Su said...

@Tracy: Thanks! I'll need to smarten up afterwards-- I anticipate being completely flattened!

@L'Aussie: It's just that we've so recently made one another's acquaintance... I've been blogging for a while!

@Myne: I'm glad you're here to participate in the shindig! :D

Hi Su, your 7th blogoversary?! With or without a year off, that is uber impressive. Good luck with the GRE!

Su said...

Thanks, Katie! To both!
