What Not To Do On April Fool’s Day

I’ve crafted this what not to do on April Fool’s Day post with a writing related twist.

  • Claim you are a writer when you clearly aren’t. The writer title isn’t something you can throw around like a boomerang. Take writing seriously or don’t write at all.
  • Lie about your previous accomplishments or past achievements. This is about as helpful as banging a hammer on your hand multiple times over. Be an honest writer or don’t be a writer at all.
  • Steal someone else’s work without crediting them. Why make people question your integrity by doing something so ridiculous? Stay original or stop writing.

Aside from what I’ve mentioned, use your common sense on April Fool’s Day and on every other day of the year. OK?

But I know you are all bright, intellectual people. Still, smart people make dumb choices all the time. Case in point: me.

Happy first day of April everyone! Have a wonderful day (or night).

The End Of This Blog?

Fellow bloggers,

I was thinking about this blog. More specifically, I was thinking about ending this blog. I’m ready to give up on blogging. I’m ready to quit writing. Now’s the time to part from both. Besides, my life is hugely occupied by this blog. If I closed my WordPress account, I would have more time to do other things. After all, I am a student. Everyone says being a student is my first priority. Everything else is secondary. Without blogging in the way, I can focus more on my grades. I can concentrate on my future. Oh, who am I fooling? There is no way I could stop writing or quit blogging. I love this blog like it’s my baby. Happy April Fool’s Day! I hope I didn’t manage to fool you. I know I didn’t fool myself. Especially since giving up and quitting is so unlike me. Anyhow, I’m not trying to be a cruel person by taking advantage of April Fool’s Day. Because…it isn’t just April Fool’s Day! Yep, April 1st, 2013 was the day I created this blog. Although my first post was published on April 2nd, 2013, I still feel like I should celebrate today. It is, in a way, my one year blogging anniversary. So I plan to do something special.

I know I don’t say this enough but hear me out. I think you know I don’t take any of this for granted. Especially since I couldn’t have ran a blog all by myself. Thanks to every single one of you for making my blogging journey so incredibly amazing/enjoyable/every wonderful adjective known to mankind. I appreciate all your support and I am truly grateful for everything.

Lots of love,
