Hey, y’all! Hello!
Today, we have quite the news for you! If you’re reading it, you’ve already seen part of it. WE HAVE A NEW THEME!!! 😀 It’s called Scratchpad and is adorable. If you don’t believe me, keep scrolling down until you find the pencil sharpener. Or a pencil shaving. 😉
Along with this adorable update, we changed our “About Us.” It made me realize that we were babies (the smallest of beans with questionable access to the internet) when we wrote it the first time and that we actually can’t still high five sometimes. Although, TIP: LOOK AT THE PERSON’S ELBOW APPARENTLY!
And the final bit of news that really does not concern our readers too much: we finally made an official profile for just this blog instead of using ACG’s account! That’s true. It was a headache to switch until we found the transfer button, but it’s for the best and I’m excited to have it feel even more official than it has. Apparently, a separate login does that. LOL @)
To illustrate what a change this was, below is the old and new versions of our “About Us.”
2011 – 2017
Well, it’s not really “about me” it’s an “about uS.” Just sayin’. We can’t high five, we’re insane, and we like chocolate. Oh, wait, that’s like a lot of girls.
Okay, now let’s get serious. There are two of us. There’s Anna the Country Girl (ACG) and there’s Anna, Just Anna (AJA).
The real things we like books, boys (fictional boys sometimes more than real), and creating people in our minds to talk to when we’re not together. Of course, we write them down, so I guess you could call us a couple of writers.
So, in short, keep your head in the clouds, feet on the ground, and READ ON!!!
About The Blog
Hello! Hey, y’all! If you’ve stumbled upon this piece of the internet, you’re in for some…well, interesting weekly posts and occasional pictures. This blog began way back at the dawn of time in 2014 when we were still adorable and slightly confused high schoolers. The anniversary of its start is celebrated by a new carved pumpkin every October because we were entering a competition, and it stuck. Of course, though the pumpkins have changed (and hopefully improved) over time, we still love this blog and posting about usually not-so-serious things. We have grown and changed right along with the blog, but some things about us have stayed the same. We are still best friends, writers, and two girls with thoughts to share (and sometimes our heads in the clouds 😉 ).
*Note: our identities on this site were created at the beginning of the blog. For consistency, these will remain, although we much prefer being simply Anna and Anna.
Anna the Country Girl (ACG)
I’m generally the optimist of the pair who loves to use y’all and gives pointless advice at the end. “AJA” tricked me (I’m teasing. I totally went willingly.) into doing what I do on the internet today. From social media to blogging, it’s thanks to her, and I’m so glad that we have this together and have had it as long as we have. I’m still scared of a large portion of the vast expanse that is The Internet, so I hope y’all appreciate her puns and meme references.
Fun facts: I’m an Aries and tend to match the descriptions. Sarcasm is actually my first language. My favorite colors are red and purple, and fantasy (werewolves specifically) is my favorite genre to read. I don’t like sports, but I have a dad and brother that do, so it’s a part of my life come fall. I use a lot of emoticons, and the poop emoji is my favorite of all time. I love colored pens, especially if they have glitter in them.
That’s me in a nutshell! Keep your heads in the clouds and your pens to the paper! 😛 ❤ 😉 O.o 😀
Anna, Just Anna (AJA)
A female bean who was born in 1997 and is learning to cope with being an adult bean. I tend to use bold font, internet slang (ironically, of course), and terrible puns as my favorite forms of communication. My signature is “drive safely.” I have been friends with “ACG” for 6 years (as of 2017) and am not sure that I would ever survive without her. Writing has always been a survival tool of mine, so running a blog with my BFF was a no brainer.
A few more fun facts: I’m a Virgo–you know what that means–and I like to argue. My favorite color is generally black, unless it’s yellow. Oh, and I have always liked chocolate and been uncoordinated as is ACG. 😉
I hope you enjoy seeing our nonsense and always remember to drive safely. ❤
Hopefully our new about is less…awkward and…immature, but still just as informative, if not–you know–more so. I have to go with moreso, because the last one didn’t make a ton of sense. Not really. It was a little…silly, which wasn’t bad for a couple of young eleventh graders instead of college sophomores (ACG is a sophomore, don’t argue with me, dual enrollment or dad -_-). But, it’s better now, and we have the old one here to forever look back on in memory. RIP old theme and old about!
We’re glad to get this updated and a new look for the blog as a whole, and we hope that y’all love it as much as we do! Keep your hearts in your minds and your hands in the air! ❤ 🙂 ;P
One thing that hasn’t changed this week is that you should drive safely. ❤
