Idea to promote following, guest blogger!

Hello dudes! You have probably read on the left-hand side of this post that we have an idea to promote following. Well, I was lying. We have 3 ideas! Isobel will be doing 2 that she made up and I will be doing 1 that I made up. We hope that we get more followers from these ideas! Isobel will (or may have already,) explained to you her ideas, anyway, here's mine!

We are going to have a guest blogger for a day!

Here's what the guest blogger will get to do;

1. come up with a post that you will get to write,

2. come up with a poll,

3. show a link to a website video or photo, (if it's like a youtube video or something we can actually get it on the site, not link or anything,)

4. If you come up with something reasonable that was not mentioned here, you might be able to do it as well.

Here is how you will do it;

1. write in a comment the exact wording of the post you would want to do, include the options and title for a poll you would want to do, the link to whatever you would want to show, (if anything,) an extra idea for something you might want to do as guest blogger if you have one, and last but not least, why you want to be the guest blogger.

2. if you get chosen to be guest blogger, you'll know because it will say so in a post.

3. We'll worry about the rest, like putting it on the site and stuff, and you can just sit back and relax while eating pie or something.


1. basically there is just one rule. Everything you do on the blog has to be absolutely original!!!!! No copying things you saw on other websites, or ideas other people commented on or really anything. You have to come up with it yourself, no exceptions.

Have fun!

And also, September 1 is the dead line for this. you can take however long you want to write the comment with your ideas, but the blogger for the day is going to be chosen on September 1. the stuff will be published on September 2. I chose the deadline randomly.



  1. Hi girls! I would love, love, love to be a guest blogger on your adorable blog site. I don't know if my posting will be as funny and charming as yours though. I've never blogged before, so I don't really know how to do it, but I will give it a try. So here goes!

    So, I'm visiting my dear friends in Chicago for a few days. Chicago is a big beautiful city in the midwest on Lake Michigan. There is so much to do here. Yesterday, we went to the Art Institute, and took a river boat cruise. It's amazing how much of this city is near the Chicago river. You wouldn't want to swim in the river though! It's too dirty, but it's still pretty to look at. If you want to go swimming you can go swim in the lake! Chicago is also a great place for shopping. There are tons of great shops, and wonderful restaurants too. It's not a good place for a diet! So, since there is so much to do in Chicago, I thought it would be fun to have a poll about the best things to do in Chicago. So, my poll is titled "Favorite things to do in Chicago". The choices are: 1) Play in the waterfall at Millenium Park 2) Go to a concert at the Pritzker pavilion 3) Shop on Michigan Avenue 4) Swim in Lake Michigan 5) Go to the top of the Sears Tower 6) Go to 6 Flags 7) Stay home and play with friends. I hope you have fun taking my poll! I can't wait to see what the results are.

    XOXOXO Suzanne

  2. Hi Isobel and Iris,

    I've got some friends over, and we've spent about 90 minutes so far deciding what we are going to all do tomorrow. There are 8 people- 3 adults, girls aged 9 to 15 and a boy aged 7, so it's been a nightmare deciding what to do!
    If I am chosen to be your guest blogger, my poll would be about everyone's favourite activities- 1)Staying home and watching DVDs
    2)Going shopping
    3)Going to the cinema
    4)Doing an outdoor activity
    So I hope that I am chosen as Guest Blogger, so I can blog about different activities anbd discover what all of your favourite activities are!

    Lots of love from Rachael xx

  3. I've had a crazy three weeks in London. We've been rushing around visiting all our friends and family as well as getting in some classic tourist sights like the Tower of London, and Borough Market. We only have one more week before going home, and I can't decide if I'm happy or sad about it - on the one hand, it will be so so lovely to see the cats again, check on my garden (I can't wait to see how everything has grown in our absence), and be in my lovely, clean house in my own bed with my own things around me. But, me and the girls have so much fun in London. It's simply brilliant to hang out with my family, go to Sainsburies for all our fave English food, have the girls go horseriding, and listen as they slowly get their English accents back. Well, it is what it is, in six days we'll be home.
    The decision on where to go for vacation is such a personal thing. I have so many friends in Chicago who in the middle of winter, when you've lost all hope of ever seeing the sun or anything green ever again, use valuable vacation days to go skiing. That's right -- they are surrounded by snow and ice, and decide that their perfect vacation is to fly to somewhere, at great expense, that has more snow and ice. Why? It's beyond me.
    So here is my poll. You have a weeks vacation in the middle of winter, where would you choose to go? a) A beach vacation somewhere tropical b) A ski vacation somewhere freezing or c) a European city vacation with lots of culture.
