Hello, Hi & Everything In Between!

Hello, awesome creatures of the universe.

Welcome to the explosion of life: MY BLOG.  Though I’m not sure if it’s mine. It’s a bit of wild beast at the moment who apparently does not like cages that are disguised as labels. I’m working on it.

I am gladly handing out some ice cream to you all, vanilla if you’re wondering so that the fun can really begin! You’re probably hearing from my old blog MBL which I honestly DO NOT want to talk about anymore, but hello to any new readers or blogger friends!

Now, I have this reputation of being SLIGHTLY horrendous at introductions (understatement of the YEAR) but anything for the fans (which apparently don’t exist)!

I’m Ilsa. Some of you might know me by my alternate name but you shall now all bow down to this amazing pseudonym (I actually know how to spell this) You can read my ABOUT page if you want to know more about the fantastic me and all my ramblings, for now, though I suggest you don’t let your ice creams melt.

Though some things I don’t mention on my About page is how I am so very addicted to BBC Sherlock (anyone else??) and that’s kind of the only TV show I watch, I’m more of a books person…If you have not guessed (where have you been?)

I’m sure you have LOTS of questions, and now that I have said HI and Hello, it’s time for that ‘Everything In Between’ (See I stay true to my titles)

WHAT’S NEW?

So, what’s different? Are MBL and AWOI going to be the same blogs? OF COURSE NOT. My old blog was…

  • cluttered
  • ugly
  • CLOGGY
  • disgusting
  • boring
  • unnecessary
  • all over the place

AND MY NEW BLOG will be nothing of the sort(in my dreams)! There will be all the fun, bookish discussions, reviews and MUCH MUCH MORE (well I can’t really think of anything right now excuse my soul) So my new blog is a fabulous list will be

  • clean
  • awesome
  • exciting
  • good quality
  • unique
  • DID I MENTION AWESOME?
  • FUUUUNNN
  • Icecream (yes adjective as well as noun *glares*)
  • a bit crazy
  • with a drizzle of London

Also, I have a new design! It’s just a header at the moment but Emily @ Books and Cleverness has been making some incredible changes to my graphics on the blog and I can’t wait to see the end result!

The pictures on here will all be mine and in black and white because I suck at photography! Yes, that paper clip one is mine and I’m scarily proud of it? My featured image layout is inspired by a range of favourite bloggers but honestly, i just used a template from Canva.

I will be changing all my names everywhere. On Twitter I am now @WhisperOfInk, on Goodreads, I am Ilsa Nite and my email is ilsa.nite.blog@gmail.com if you want to get in touch. My Pinterest will be Ilsa Nite too and I will be re-doing all of it because it is SUCH a mess right now.

And THERE IS A NEW SCHEDULE. Which is obviously maybe perhaps going to change, who knows? For now, though it will be as follows (WHO IS THIS FORMAL BEING?)

  • Tuesday – TTT/bookish post
  • Friday – announcement/re-blog/interviews (ONLY SOMETIMES)
  • Sunday – book review/tag

Fridays will be if I urgently need to post something like an update or some sort or something that doesn’t fit into the schedule. My main schedule will be every Tuesday and Sunday which is ONLY 2 days but what most people like. I HAVE LE POLL.

Short-Divider

SOME THINGS NEVER CHANGE 

It’s still a book blog people! And my fantastic 1000 followers (OMIGOSH THANK YOU) are still here ready to support me! And I still don’t ‘button swap’. I’m still the same person on the inside. I’m still as awesome as ever, thank you very much. And you guys are still rebellious as ever.

Anyways, I hope you enjoy your stay! Followers, I welcome you. People who shout out my new blog, I thank you. And everyone else, ICECREAM?

Let's Whisper

So, what’s your favourite Ice cream? Impressions of my new blog? Are you insanely excited? Whats your thoughts on the designs/name? Have you got my new email saved? Question: Do you like GIFS in blog posts or not? I need answers people, I demand them (ice cream if you do)

  5. Hellooooo Ilsa !!

    I’m SO EXCITED about this new blog of yours 😁!! Can’t wait to see the new design 😀! Also, hi5 on loving BBC Sherlock 🙌 I don’t like how I’m not able to add GIFs here.
    My favourite ice-creams though are tender-coconut, fig and honey, and Vanilla. But really, I LOVE ice-creams, give me any flavour (that’s not too odd) and I’ll have it.

  6. DUDE YOU KNOW I LOOOOOVE GIFS IN A POST. They just make the post SO. MUCH. BETTER. Anywaaaays, I’m so excited! Dude, MBL was NOT all the things you listed! It was so awesome. (But AWOI will be even more awesome.) Oh when I saw that featured image I was like OOH THAT’S REALLY COOL and NOW IT’S EVEN COOLER BECAUSE YOU TOOK IT!!! I honestly would take photos to use on my blog buuuuut I have to steal my mom’s phone to take the photos and my mom is at work most of the time. But you might’ve inspired me to do that??? Idk.

    NO NO NO WHY IS IT VANILLA ICE CREAM DEFINITELY CHOCOLATE ICE CREAM OR BETTER YET COOKIES AND CREAM ICE CREAM.

    I love the new design and I can’t wait to see more of it! And dude I don’t need to save your email, I already got it memorized. #nearphotographicmemory

    1. OKAY seems everyone loves GIFS so I have to start including them in my posts! Dude, let’s not lie, MBL WAS all those things on that list. IMO anwyays. I’m actually so proud of that image tbh. Here’s my photography skills that will soon fail. Agh May, a born thief!

      VANILLA IS CHEAP. i literally just had cookies & Cream Ice cream today and IT WAS FABULOUS.

      I wish I had photographic memory. Or photographic skills for that matter XD

      1. Yes duh everyone loves gifs! Well as long as they’re funny. Sometimes I’ll just be reading the text calmly and burst out laughing from the gif. IT’S A WONDERFUL IMAGE!

        Would you rather have quality or cheap? XD AND COOKIES AND CREAM IS SO GREAT!!!

        Well I don’t have it COMPLETELY. And I won’t remember it forever. And it doesn’t help much when I’m reading books. HEY YOU HAVE PHOTOGRAPHIC SKILLS!

      2. Well on my Twitter Poll 12% of humans don’t like them so??? I LOVE GIFS TOO but I’m sacred to put them in my posts for some reason.

        Let’ s be real..I’m broke here. And Vanilla is like a neutral flavour..everyone loves it? RIGHT

        THE LIES. I cannot take photos. TO SAVE MY LIFE.

      3. (Don’t use gifs. They sometimes are kind of unprofessional and I feel like blogs look better without them.)

        Don’t mind me. You weren’t asking my opinion anyway. I was just comment stalking.

  9. Hurray! Issa, you new blog is gorgeous! I’m so excited for you, but I will miss MBL. You’re taking all your own photos? That’s awesome! I try, I really do, but sometimes they are less than great, and then I don’t even want to post them. But good luck to on your photos, your graphics and most importantly, you blog!

  12. HI ILSA!!! I’ve migrated from My Bookish Life to here, and I LOVE YOUR PICTURE. YES. IT IS GREAT. Anyway, vanilla ice cream is clearly the best, and for anyone who disagrees, I will respect your opinion, but an essay on why vanilla is the best ice cream flavor will be in order.

    Liked by 1 person

      1. YES, IT DOES. Vanilla is clearly the best flavor. It tastes amazing on it’s own, AND you can add toppings without them clashing with the delicious subtle vanilla flavoring.

  13. Hey Ilsa,(oh god that was weird)
    I can’t believe this is what your blog looks like! It looks so amazing gahhh. (Totally fangirling) THROWBACK: I know I am not a very active follower nor have I been following you from the beginning(I think it was around the time you hit 200 followers) but I can genuinely say, I, Shania Ahmed, has watched Ilsa Nite grow from her humble little beginnings to reaching 1000 followers and being one of the best blogs I read(even better than Cosmo) Congratulations!♡

  14. don’t ask me to choose my favorite icecream flavor #rude. I love it! I was scared you were going to disappear from the internet when you were contemplating a new blog but I AM A FAN.
    Also, ugh i absolutely ADORE low saturation/black and white photos as you may have noticed on my blog?? I don’t know, I just really, really like them. NEW SCHEDULE, SWOOP. Schedules are a good thing to have. Even if you are me and you don’t follow them, because then they way over your head guiltily and then you pull a post out of your brain and throw it at the internet. Yes, this works for motivation for me.
    Love it, Ilsa 😉

I don’t really want to answer that questio- wait I’ll get ice cream? Promise??? Well in THAT CASE, I like gifs! They kind of liven up the entire post imo.

      Most people like the GIFs for some reason so they will be added but not TOO much because that are some humans (*cough*) that do not like them, apparently.

    You know, on the posts, they should add a ‘love’ button because your posts are just ASDFGHJK; awesome. (see me restraining my use of exclamation mark??) I am so excited to read all your wonderful posts!

    My favourite ice- cream is cookies and cream or good ol’ vanilla! (But never chocolate- I just don’t like it in ice-cream. I don’t know why?! It tastes fine on its own!)

    And for the big question: I like gifs in posts but only about 2 or 3. Too many gets kind of annoying! DO I GET ICE-CREAM NOW? I’LL TRADE YOU SOME DOUGHNUTS! 😄😃😊😁♥🍩🍨🍧 xx
