30 Days of Tumblr

30 Days of Tumblr Blogging Challenge



#01 - How did you find out about Tumblr? 

Probably on LiveJournal. I used to be pretty active on there but as it died down more and more people moved over to Tumblr.



#02 - Have you had another account before this one?

No; I've just changed usernames a few times.



#03 - What other URLs have you had?

I don't remember them all, but they include starrrz, babiafi, and horrorsaurus.



#04 - What does your current URL mean?

Serenwib is Welsh for shooting star - all my fandom accounts have names related to stars.



#05 - How many posts do you have?

852. I go through now and then and delete posts that are no longer relevant, etc.



#06 - Is your portrait photo actually you?

Nope, not unless my mirror has been lying all these years...

Blue Stripe Background



#07 - Let’s see your Tumblr crushes!

All the fanartists. They're amazing! <3



#08 - How many followers do you have?

726.



#09 - How many people do you follow?

4683.



#10: Do you follow back?

Yes, unless it's a spambot or something.



#11 - Have you ever submitted something to a blog?

Probably, but it's not something I do often.



#12 - Do you run any other blogs?

Yes, but not on Tumblr.



#13 - What theme are you using?

Oscar, apparently.



#14 - Who is your go-to theme maker?

I just use the basic free ones.



#15 - What is your Tumblr pet peeve?

It's more of a general fandom pet peeve, but it's still annoying: people misusing the term 'drabble'. It means a story of exactly 100 words. A 'double drabble' is a story of 200 words. Other lengths below 1,000 words are a 'ficlet'. A 1,200 word fic is never going to be a drabble. Don't call it one!



#16 - Give a shout-out to your followers! What would you like to tell them?

Thank you for putting up with me! :)



#17 - Do you think there should be an age limit on Tumblr?

Definitely. If I wanted to talk to kids I wouldn't be on the internet avoiding them.



#18 - Are you 'Tumblr Famous'? Do you want to be?

No and, sure, why not? Gotta get my five minutes somewhere, after all!



#19 - What is your favourite FuckYeah_____ blog?

Heck Yeah Tumblr Challenges!



#20 - What’s a blog you really enjoy that you don’t think gets enough love, promote them today!

Brainy Facts. So much trivia, so little time.



#21 - How many of your followers do you know in real life?

Only a handful.



#22 - Do you have your Tumblr connected to / advertised on your other accounts (Facebook, YouTube, Twitter?)

No, and it's not a prominent link on my blog either. I like having a network that's a little more private and disconnected from my work / public life.



#23 - What’s the main difference between Tumblr and Facebook for you?

Facebook is a public facing network full of people I know - just another channel where people contact me for work or stuff I need to do. Tumblr, in contrast, is full of people I've never met 'IRL' and is where I talk about fun hobby things.



#24 - What’s the most amount of notes one of your posts has gotten?

No idea! Maybe a couple of hundred.



#25 - If you could only ever post text or photo posts ever again, which would you choose?

Text. Surely the whole point of a free blogging platform is for me to share my mundane thoughts with the rest of the world?



#26 - What do you think of anon ask box questions/comments?

I love them! It's one of the better features of the site.



#27 - If someone was checking out your blog for the first time today, tell them what they would expect to see if they followed you.

Lots of Gotham stuff, interspersed with giveaways and random pretty pictures and gifsets.

#28 - Ask your followers a question for them to answer in your ask box!

Done and dusted.



#29 - How many posts do you have in your queue?

Only three at the moment.



#30 - Post a verification picture today! (A picture of yourself holding up a paper with your URL written on it)

In the immortal words of The Pretenders - maybe tomorrow, maybe someday...

British Food

A/N: On a previous blog wrote a whole series of posts on British life, explained for American fiction writers. This week I'm reposting the entry explaining British cuisine... Britain is world renowned for its stodgy, uninspiring cuisine. (Which should explain the deep suspicion Britons have of most foreign cuisine, unless it's been suitably adapted for the British palette.) BBC sitcom Goodness Gracious Me explains it best via the 'going for an English' sketch - a play on the popular British past time of 'going for an Indian (i.e. curry)'. " What's the blandest thing on the menu? " asks one character, later encouraging another, " Just have something a little bland, huh? Waiter, what have you got that is not totally tasteless? " Because, the truth is that traditional British fare is far from a taste sensation for those who haven't been raised on the stuff. Still, read on, and you can judge for yourself...

Simply Cook Review

I kept seeing ads and deals for Simply Cook everywhere, so as there was a special offer on at OhMyDosh! Rewards (£3 for the box and £3.50 cashback) I figured I had nothing to lose by giving it a try. What Is It? Recipe kits packed into boxes which fit through your letterbox. The usual price is £9.99 for a kit of 4, with each one serving 2-4 people depending on your serving sizes. All you need to do is buy the fresh ingredients required and follow the instructions. Here is Simply Cook's own helpful diagram: Does It Work? For me, as the person just eating it, it was awesome. Everything tasted great - the mushroom penne in particular was so good I went back for seconds - and I liked that the sauces weren't as rich as Anthony would usually make them. For Anthony, who cooked them, they weren't as impressive. He complained that the food was bland and that it was actually quite a lot of faff, as Lidl didn't stock everything we needed which meant another trip ou
