Out and About.

Despite my little pause for however long that was, I am really and honestly trying to update with more regularity. At the moment I've been struck down by some kind of cold that is making the rounds, and also, it is raining almost as much as possible. Normally I am perfectly pleased to roll around in puddles but at the moment I'd rather have some mild sun.

I thought though, I'd take the opportunity to offer the other places on the internet where you might follow me!

The tumblr to go with this blog can be found here. It's still on wobbly little legs, but it's there. If you followed my tumblr back when I first started it, you probably noticed it quickly devolved into internet-screaming about Harry Potter and cat gifs, with a healthy dose of my deep and inscrutable feelings regarding whatever book, object, TV show, or dress was making me feel things. That tumblr is still up-and-running, but it has little-to-nothing to do with my blog, really, so I pulled the two apart. 

The blog's facebook is over here and I do use it pretty regularly. I throw a link up when I've updated the actual site, and also use it for pictures of things that don't really belong in an individual post, or that are just cell-phone pictures, but that I still want to share. 

Twitter is, of course, here although it is going a bit of the way of the first tumblr. Lots of caps-locking and losing my mind over things like Harry Potter, lack of Pottermore e-mail, Downton Abbey, and what I am eating. I also post blog updates and sometimes things that are clothing-related. 

I tried using lastfm but couldn't stick with it. Thankfully, 8tracks seems to have rescued me. I don't make a whole lot of mixes on there, but I pop in now and then to put up whatever I'm currently listening to or things I think fit together nicely. 

Since I talk about books fairly often on here, I got myself a Shelfari, because I liked the way it looked better than the other personal library-cataloguing sites out there. It's generally correct, but I tend to update it in bursts. 

I recently hopped on the pinterest train, and while I love it, I am getting really, really frustrated with the places I find images from that don't credit the source. A lot of things I've pinned are from my tumblr favorites, which inevitably don't include credit so I tried to include a link to the original post that I found it, at the very least, but if it's something that has pretty much no source I usually just won't pin it. The Cats board is getting a lot of pins from me, as is the Hungry one. 

Flickr is still running pretty much as smoothly as ever!

I think that's it! I have a terrible habit of signing up for everything, but these are my most frequent or useful haunts. Please feel free to add or follow me, I try my best to add or follow back, but I'm a bit slow so introduce yourself on any of these sites if you'd like! Hopefully all these links work, phew!


  1. Splendid! Pinterest looks really cool, actually - perhaps I'll sign up.

    Also, Pottermore! I totally felt your pain, so I sympathise. Bon courage!

  2. i totally missed the pottermore train. and i understand about the updating regularly. i've been down in the dumps so it's hard to want to do anything at all.

    yay 8tracks! i have one, and i'm going to follow you.

  3. Pinterest and Tumblr are great places for inspiration, I'll be sure to follow you!

  4. So many social media sites! I get so overwhelmed so I haven't hopped on many of these trains... I try to blog consistently, I made a tumblr for my cat but got bored, I still like twitter intermittently...

    I keep forgetting about pinterest, even though I signed up a while ago. Must check it out for real now!

  5. So much imagery! Perused your flickr most thoroughly. How lovely to see how you've moved through the last five years!
    Making me want the full extent of my wardrobe when all I have is a suitcase worth (which is also taken up by sleeping bags and other non wearable items).
    I'll just have to get creative I think.
    Great Job! You do good!

  6. I adore Pinterest, a total addict. I get really annoyed when people don't link sources properly too... nearly all my pins like properly though. I look forward to seeing your pins now too!

  7. hope to see you posting more soon! and feeling better, of course!
    Oh, and I've just added a blogroll to my blog, you're on it!

  8. I haven't blogged in so long, but I'm back and following you!

  9. I just got my Pottermore e-mail yesterday. I think I almost forgot about it, until you mentioned it. And then it came. Wanna be friends on Pottermore (when you get your e-mail)?

  10. I follow you on twitter.
    And have to say you are adorable.

  11. I'm right there with you re: Pottermore! Losing my mind every morning when I sift through the emails with no luck :( And I love tumblr - I'm and I'm addicted to pretty much the same things - Harry Potter and cat gifs forever!!

  13. I know this a random question, but I am desperate. It seems like you've done a good job with creating your blog template. Is there any possible way you could teach me how?

  14. I just went and added you to my pinterst account. Lovely!
