Blogs of Today

It is incredibly rare, to find a good blog that is updated on a regular occasion.

I myself, have spent years trying to find good blogs, that would always have something different when I next looked and so I always had something good to read on the internet.

Of course one of the obvious exceptions is this blog (as we all know it is the best) but I have still composed a short list for you, on some of my favorite blogs.

Genius Words

This site is full to bursting with phrases and words that the author considers ‘Genius’.

It also sometimes has reviews on books and TV Shows on which the author has some intresting views.

Check it out. It’s Genius!

An English Teacher’s Toolbox

This one’s an intresting one as I can’t particuarily say it would be much good to an English teacher.

However it does have a really good collection of cool pictures, phrases and statistics.

You have to see it to know what I mean.

Doctor Who TV

For fans of Doctor Who such as I, this blog is a minefield of imformation.

It has practically everything you want to know about Doctor Who, and is updated everyday as well!

Quotational Quotes

It is pretty obvious to guess what this one is about, but I’ll tell you anyway.

It’s full of quotes! I know. Genius! Whatever you want a quote for, it will be there.

And new ones are added everyday.

Ok, so we’ve rapped up my little summary of blogs. I know there are hundreds more good ones but these are the ones I decided to write summaries about.

Check um’ out. And tell everybody about this one because it’s even better then those.

Bye!

Coming Soon: Facebook vs Twitter

Mad about Pottermore

 I pride myself as being a great fan of Harry Potter. I have read the first book 16 times and the rest countless more times. I know nearly everything there is to know about the Potter universe and have memorised great chunks of the text.

So I, like many others, was very sad when the last film came out, as it marked the end of the time when I would always be looking forward to the release of the next book or film.

However I soon heard tell about a brand new, interactive Potter website which would be coming online at the end of the year. Its name, Pottermore!

And so I waited for this new site that would be coming open soon. And waited. And waited.

6 months later than promised. I was allowed in.

 Although annoyed about having to wait so long for them to fix a couple of server problems, I cannot deny that the chance to explore Pottermore was exciting. You emerge into a bright purple ‘Gateway’ filled with mysterious swirls and graphics which had obviously not come cheap.

As you explore the world of Pottermore you can see all parts of the story that you never see in the films and to an extent, the books either. Scattered along the way are objects, books and even specially written content by JK Rowling.

You also get a chance to be sorted into one of the houses yourself. GO GRYFFINDOR!

Trust me. Pottermore is amazing. Try it out.

And while you’re there, you can add me            ^^^^^^.

Let the blogging commence

I would not say that I commit myself to many things. But when I do, I always give it my best shot.

This blog; PenPal is really just a place where I can scrawl out all my thoughts; whether it be a good book I have just read, quote I have heard, or just something that I have decided that others may be mildly interested to see.

I have had a blog before. A moderately well-known Doctor Who site which still manages to rope in 20 or so internet wonderers a day. And I hope to continue my blogging success here.

Keep reading. You don’t know what might be going on!
