One Year Of Blogging // 10 Truths And 2 Lies


September 12, 2017


   Whoa.

   I've officially been blogging for one year now. Can you believe that? Because I can't xD.

one year of blogging and ten truths and two lies [header image]


   My first year of blogging has been AH-MAZING, and you guys were definitely the biggest part of it. I'm so so thankful for all of you that read and comment on my ramblings. You're all incredible *hugs*.

   Special thanks to Christine Smith and Katie Grace, who were the first to show me that there's an epic community of blogging writers out there. I know that my first-ever comment on a bigger blog was on one of yours ... I just can't remember who's xD. But you're both amazing, and you continue to inspire! And special thanks also go to Go Teen Writers, who helps tons of teenage writers (including me!), and I probably wouldn't be where I am without them. And LASTLY (but not least!), to my sister Ariel, who should be credited for a lot of my book pictures on Scattered Scribblings. I hold the books, she takes the pictures xD.

   I wish I had the time to thank ALL of you, I really do, but then this post would get so long! But y'all should know that I appreciate every single one of you like crazy, and all of your comments never fail to make me smile. ;)

Stats from my first year of blogging: 


   followers (between GFC and email subscribers): 135
   page views: 40k
   posts: 96
   most popular post: to all the young writers (okay, so it's the second most popular - but it's also one of my favorites, so)   

   Alright, alright - let's skip the rambling and get straight to the point of this post.

   I'm finally doing 10 truths and 2 lies!


   The rules to the game are easy - I'll be posting 12 facts about me, and ten of them will be true while two of them are actually lies. Your job is to figure out which two you think are lies, and post them in the comments below! I've seen other bloggers play this game, and it's always a ton of fun - though I'm afraid I don't have a prize to offer to the winner like most of them do - but you can go enter the giveaway that's still running! And if you enter the giveaway and guess the lies correctly, I guess I'll give you three extra entries into the giveaway xD.

   Better channel your inner Sherlock Holmes, bloggers.


   1. I wear contacts 

   2. I sleep with a notebook and pens under my pillow 

   3. I own less than 50 ebooks

   4. I kept a dream diary for four years 

   5. I had a private blog before I started Scattered Scribblings 

   6. I'm not an early bird. 

   7. I've ridden on a Ferris wheel and a rollercoaster. 

   8. I'm a quarter Korean 

   9. I've only read the Harry Potter series once. 

Harry Potter And The Sorcerer's Stone Book Picture


   10. Buffalo chicken pizza is a my favorite 

   11. I rarely buy notebooks 

   12. I've purposefully ripped up books before  


   There you have it - I did my best to make the lies hard for you guys to guess, so I suppose we'll see how sneaky I was once this ends! You have until the 23th to comment your guesses - I'm curious to see which of these you think are lies! xD

  2. Congrats on your one year anniversary! I've only been reading your blog for a few months now (and only just started commenting), but I found you through Go Teen Writers. I always enjoy checking on your blog, and reading your posts is both helpful and fun. Thank you for much for creating this! You're doing so well, especially for just one year.
    Oh gosh - you did a good job about making it tricky for us to guess! I'm pretty sure I'm guessing wrong, but my inner (probably malfunctioning) Sherlock is saying . . . 7 and 10?

  6. I feel like I have an advantage here, since I know you personally, but I still had to think about it. . . I'm guessing 1 and 2. Not sure if that's right (just tried to type "write--ha), but there's a few I KNOW are true. :)

    1. Ugh, misread one of the statements! Can I change it to 1 and 9?

      Delete
    2. Well I TRIED to do ones that even you probably wouldn't know (even my sisters don't know some of these xD) - and yes, since you misread I'll let you re-guess, I just don't want everyone trying to switch their guesses a bunch after they make them ;).

  7. OHH YESSS I LOVE THIS GAME MWAHAHA. *stalker mode engaged* I rarely get it right though... I'm guessing it's #1 and #8. Number one because that seems like it's just subtly sneaking in right there at the beginning and number eight because you don't look Asian at all. *nods* XD

    1. I KNOW, RIGHT? I wish more people did 10 truths and 2 lies! And GOOD LUCK - we'll see if your guesses were right when I do the results post xD.

  10. I'm guessing that you own MORE than 50 ebooks, and that you buy notebooks compulsively.

    Or that you don't wear contacts.

    What a fun idea for a blog post. And happy blog-o-versary!!

  11. ummmmmm, I'm gonna say, #4 and #9 are the lies. I don't know you all that well, so those were complete guesses. ;D

    1. But making a guess is certainly better than nothing! ;D

  12. WOOT. *throws confetti* CONGRATS ON THE ONE YEAR!!!! *tosses pizza too* I'm so excited for you.

    Aaack I love these guessing games but I HAVE NO IDEA. LEGIT. *chews fingernails* I'm just going to pick two random ones here. 7 and 10??? I DON'T KNOW. XD Number eight is kind of suspicious too though, and I feel like number one is a little hmm... *squints* OH WELL. I'm just going to stick with the ones I've got now. XD

  24. I'm thinking #9 (because if you have read it only once I. am. shocked. Also #12, because I'm thinking you appreciate books more than that ... xD

    You are quarter Korean though. Because I saw you say it somewhere before. (Hey fellow blogger with some mixed Asian ethnicity, nice to meet you! I am a half-Asian blood as well xD)

  25. Maybe I should do this too at some point ... xD

    ReplyDelete
  26. I mean ... unless that's a trick question and those "books" you ripped up were your own notebooks????

    ReplyDelete
  27. I didn't even see number ten cause it's squashed in next to the image from where I'm seeing it, but I googled and buffalo chicken pizza (though it sounds really ... crazy?) is a legit thing so ...

    (sorry for the flood of comments from me xD)

    1. Haha, the flood of comments is fine (I'll just reply to them all here xD). And ... okay, seeing as you already know, YES, I am a quarter Korean. And seriously, you're part Asian too??
