T-Shirts, Confessions, Tips, and More… 

Hi everyone!

So, it has been a while since I last posted any sort of announcement on this blog. In fact, there haven’t been many posts at all on this blog lately. Submissions have been sorely lacking! 

In this post I’d like to address a couple of topics related to the running of this blog (besides asking you to submit more awesome memes, of course).

First, to those who have been asking, there is not template for the English Major Confessions. Just send them in as an ask and I will put them into an image and queue them up! The same sort of rules apply to confessions that have applied to memes, of course. Be respectful, do not attack each other. :)

Second, I’m also taking submissions (in the same format as the confessions) for English Major Tips! These can be lighthearted or serious. Any kind of tip that you have for your fellow Armadillos to make their lives easier or more enjoyable! 

Finally, I’m still serious about doing some kind of tshirts with this blog. Please tell me what you’d like to see! Memes on shirts? Buttons? Magnets? I’m planning on doing it through Zazzle, so there are a lot of options. It’s up to YOU to let me know what you want to see! 

Thanks so much for continuing to follow this blog everyone!

English Major Confession: I have an unhealthy obsession with the seven deadly sins. I almost always have a copy of The Inferno on my person. I want to learn Italian just so I can read the words as Dante wrote them.

"It’s the emptiest and yet the fullest of all human messages: ‘Good-bye.’" 

     This post has been a long time coming, I’m afraid. I had considered writing it many times, but whenever frustrations neared an insurmountable peak someone would sincerely ask for help or send in a heartfelt message of thanks. I now realize that my lingering presence is unfair, however. You all deserve another dedicated mod. 

     I haven’t been very faithful to the inbox and forum these past couple months. Arguably, I was busy with the tail end of my junior year. With the semester now over, though, I’m preparing to embark on a new journey; I’ll be leaving for Vienna, Austria in less than a week, and I’ll be gone for well over a month. When I return, I’ll be just as distracted as I am now, trying to fit in one last summer of reading on the beach before settling into senior year. 

     So I leave this blog once again in the capable hands of Tori, the lovely mod that started all of this madness. It has been a good year (indeed, I started moderating a year ago today), but it’s time to say goodbye. I wish Tori the best of luck on the search for a new mod. If any of you wonderful Armadillos wish to keep in contact, I’ll still be blathering on about Shakespeare, German language, and college, over at my personal blog

    Have a wonderful summer, everyone. Good luck in all of your English Major adventures!

So the consensus on new additions to the blog seems to be the following: 

  • Book recommendations
  • Tips for English Majors
  • more Etsy items
  • and, interestingly, tshirts!

I think weekly book recs might be a good idea, then they could have their own page on the blog as well, separated by genre! Suggestions submissions could be taken for those as well as for the Tips for English Majors, which I’ll work on some kind of basic post template for soon. :D I’ll try to queue some more Etsy items up today as well!

As far as tshirts are concerned….well…I’ll try and brainstorm a bit….but if anyone has any ideas or suggestions, send them our way! 

Thanks for all the feedback everyone!
