Crab Shaped Harvest Box

This is around the 5th time I have tried to write this blog today.
My hands are cold and typing is a good way in which to warm them up, so I will update you on my hands at the end of the blog.

Yesterday just before I was about to go to bed I received an email from a person called David, this is what it said:

Hey Blogger - My name is David,

I have been searching the Internet for the most well-written blogs and was impressed by yours. I wanted to invite you to become a paid blogger at Blog Distributor. (please understand that I do not send this invitation to every blogger I come across.)

Here is a link that describes how it all works in a little more detail:

Our system is set up so that bloggers can make more money with us than with any other blog-for-pay firm. In short, we are the middle man between you and the advertiser. We match the correct blogs with the correct advertisers, who pay us to do so. And then we pay you, the blogger on behalf of the advertiser. You only take the advertisements that you want and are comfortable with. In no way does this alter the owersship of your blog. You simply get paid to write postings on your blog that you choose to write. You do what you want, when you want.

I thought this was pretty odd, seeing as hardly anyone reads my blog and it is mainly for my purpose to log my days in a diary format rather than for anyone else (keep reading if you are! I LOVE YOU). So I have a feeling that ignoring this email is the best option for me because (1) I don't really want to advertise randomly in my blog (2) if I actually have any readers you will not want to see BUY THIS ITEM in my writing (3) I just want to blog for that sake of it, because I think it is fun and the internet is a place where things never die, so this is documented, will never be lost, may never be found, and something I can look back on in years to come. Almost like the room of requirement. :)
It was quite nice to receive an email like this though, and it made me happy to think that (if it is actually genuine) this person thought I was a good writer. So thank you person.

I had awkwardness today wasn't the nicest thing, but what can you do.

I did buy Alex Day's album yesterday and I am REALLY excited about getting it. Yey, plus, this is the first time I will have bought a REAL CD in a long time rather than downloading it from itunes. Happy times. I am actually very happy at the moment, although I have an English presentation which I can't actually remember what to say about. If I fail, I fail and what can be done. I am okay with making things up on the spot, but when it has to be about a certain topic and you get penalized for saying "um" and "err" and "like" or any colloquial saying, I am not too confident, because I want to talk to my class friends as if I am talking to them just generally... which is not what my teacher wants me to do.

I have to remember my harvest food tomorrow, because my form tutor is about to go crazy about me not having bought anything in for our form's Crab shaped harvest box that we have decorated. Harvest is so late in England.

I made a vlog today as well as it is Wednesday, so head on over to the emeraldsandstuff YouTube channel here if you want to watch it, and some of our other vlogs as well.

Don't you hate it when people say "Oh my gosh, I have a secret, but I can't tell you!"
I do.
