A new Look

  Hello, how do you do? It's Jane Blogger, with some good news.  

Well after deep thought, I decideed to spice up the looks of the Anything Blog. Yes, it was sad to see the pink and red stripes go, but I can always change back to that later. Anyhow, what do you think of the new theme? Is the book tacky for a background, or is it just right for a blog about books? I want your opinion. So yes, it is....



  I'm always taking suggestions so I can use them to make TAB better. Oh, and from now on, I want everyone to email me using this, because it  doesn't contain any personal info:
 Okay, that will be it for today, folks! Coming up on Monday : Do you enjoy it when books focus on one controversial topic and twist it into the plot? I'll have some different opinions for you from some other bloggers. Goodbye, folks!

Essential Elements for a Good Book

  Jane here, fingers eagerly shaking from excitement. I forgot how fun this was! About that, very sorry I haven't been posting. I've been really busy. Here are my elements:

1. A clear plot (obviously so, but sometimes books are all over the place if you understand what I mean.)

2. A message or moral that is intertwined with the characters and events. ( You see, this is important. Not to sound harsh, but I just can't stand books with no message or point.)

3. Characters that I can connect with. This way, you understand the book so much more, and you can feel the emotions they might be feeling.

4. Unique personalities. I'm so tired of the stereotypes. I love it when an author dares to match two totally different personalities to make a friendship, too.

5. A full and satisfactory ending. What I mean is, some books just leave you wondering and confused. Like, "What just happened?" . And other times it just seems empty, like it wasn't really an ending, just another chapter.

 Well, that is it for today, folks. Be sure to Comment and follow, andthink: What are 5 of your essential elements that go into creating an enjoyable book?

The Liebster Award! Questions and Answers

              Hello everyone! I am actually very happy today. Why?

So, looking at my good blogger -friend's blog, I was happy for her. Why? She was nominated for the Liebster Blog Award! How awesome! And congratulations to her! So, you still might be wondering why I'm happy.
  She was supposed to come up with 10 questions for 5 other blogs to participate. I was 4th on the list! So here are her questions ( You can visit this post on her blog Here ):
Now for my own questions.
  1. If you could do one thing that you were guaranteed wouldn’t fail, what would it be?
  2. What is your current favorite song?
  3. Small cottage or huge mansion?
  4. What is your blog’s purpose?
  5. If you could move to anywhere in the world, where would you move?
  6. Name one thing you couldn’t live without.

  8. If you had to live with only one of your five senses, which one would you choose?
  9. Quick, decide between reading or writing!
  10. What is your favorite dessert?
Now for my answers:
1.  Dancing. 
2. Tough one. I really like broadway musicals, so I'm going to have to say "Popular" From Wicked or "I'm a Believer" from Smash Mouth since I'm doing that for my dance.
3. Cottage cottage cottage! A cottage is a perfect place for a writer - cozy, small, yet big enough to think your thoughts.
4.  My blog's purpose. This is hard. "The Anything Blog" is kind of general, but my purpose is to connect to all book lovers, bloggers, and writers everywhere.
5. This is hard. I would probably move to Ireland, to visit where my grandmother was from.
6. Words.
7.  This is hard. I would probably say the sunset by the beach in Belize. It's really amazing.
8.  I would say eyes. I could see things, and silently comment about them.

9. Cheerleading is one of my favorite hobbies.
10. I'm a daddy's girl, while my brother is a mother's child.
11. I really hate when lists end with odd numbers.

Thinking about Handing It Over

                        Hello everyone. Well, you might be wondering what on earth this title means...well, I'll explain in a minute.

  Blogging on The Anything Blog just hasn't been the same anymore.  So, to get my spirits up, I'm looking for a co-writer for about a day. Just to get people's attention. 
 So, that's right. I'm handing the Anything Blog over for a day.
 Well, at first I was considering deleting this blog, or just never going back to it. But that's too rash. I decided to hand it over occasionally to someone else. Because blogging for me hasn't been the same. I haven't moderated comments, haven't gotten excited when I look at my blog every week for anything in the 'reactions' or 'comments' areas. 
 What I'm looking For:
  A good writer who doesn't curse, and doesn't get control-crazy.
How I'll Find This: Introduce yourself in a comment or personal email saying: Hi (or whatever greeting you go by), my name is _____. <optional> I have a blog, which you can visit Here (Just Google). - any other message, saying I hope to get it or something. This is optional. - 
Okay guys! Hope you submit your entries. It's really just something for me to do to get this blog active as it used to be. I don't know what happened. Even though it's not Suggestion Saturday, I'm always taking your opinion in and trying to make TAB better!

I've also been busy with this new story I'm working on : Ruth Augusta and the Seven Spies.   I wouldn't plagiarize if I were you, dears, because the website is copyrighted :P. Plus, it's just flat-out mean. I've explained that in several posts.
