Spring Cleaning


care_n_clean_african_am_ladySpring cleaning is usually applied to the tidying of the indoors, but there’s no reason not to tidy up the blog too. There are several posts I’m considering taking down, for the sake of neatness. If there is anything that you would like me to keep up, let me know and I will leave it as-is. Here’s the current list, with links:

1. All posts under the category “Summer Vacation”

2. All posts under the category “The Seemingly Stupid Adventures of Non Sequitor” (In my opinion, these are kinda funny, but no one else seems to agree with me)

3. All posts under the category “Reblogs” (both of these are from blogs my friends had, and have since discontinued)

4. All posts under the category “My Life Inside of the Little City on a Computer Chip” (these will probably go up on their own blog, under a different title, when I’m done with Frozen Landscapes)

That is all for now, but I’ll post any updates if I decide to single out posts, either in the comments or in a new post.

Thank for any input. Please let me know if I am making good decisions!

Ciao for now,

Mikki

Wow. I’m Getting Old.


Guess how long I’ve been blogging on mikkiaaron. Take a shot. No risk.

It’s been two years. Maybe that doesn’t seem like a long time. In some ways, I’m still an internet novice. However, the past two years have been some of the most dramatic in my life so far, and I’m so glad I had the opportunity to share them with my readers.

An even 270 are currently following mikkiaaron. Each one subscriber, whether you have been with me since 2012 or since yesterday, has helped me grow. Just the sheer number is astounding. All of the positive feedback I’ve received in the comments has brought me so far as a writer. Thank you.

It truly has been an adventure. Looking back at my earlier posts and coming forward, it’s easy to watch parts of my life story play out. Sometimes, during the process of writing things to be published on my blog, I have discovered truths about myself and the little world I live in. I’ve shared so much of myself on this platform and it’s been taken so gracefully. For this, I am truly grateful.

I know I haven’t been keeping up with the blog lately. The posts will return to normal as soon as I get used to having a daily routine again, which should be fairly soon.

Until then,

Ciao for now,

Mikki

 

Spam: A Poem


Author’s Note: 100% of the following was copied and pasted directly from spam comments on this blog. The only thing I changed was the line spacing, since, clearly, they weren’t already in poem form. Also, some of the spam had to be shortened for the sake of not being boring. Without further ado, here goes nothing.

Good day! I know this is kind of off topic but
I was wondering which blog platform are you using for this website?

I’m getting sick and tired of WordPress because I’ve
had problems with hackers and I’m looking at alternatives for another platform.
I would be fantastic if you could point me in the direction of a good platform.

Hmm it appears like your website ate my first comment (it
was extremely long) so I guess I’ll just sum it up what I submitted and say, I’m thoroughly
enjoying your blog. I as well am an aspiring blog blogger
but I’m still new to everything. Do you have any helpful hints for inexperienced blog writers?
I’d certainly appreciate it.

Hello Web Admin, I noticed that your On-Page SEO is is missing a few
factors, for one you do not use all three H tags
in your post, also I notice that you are not using bold or italics properly in your SEO optimization.

On-Page SEO means more now than ever since the new Google update: Panda.

.….wait there’s even more Now what if i told you there was a simple WordPress plugin
that does all the On-Page SEO, and automatically for you?
That’s right AUTOMATICALLY, just watch this 4minute video for more information at. Seo Plugin

Hello you have a great site over here! Thanks for posting
this interesting stuff for us! If you keep up the great work
I’ll visit your site again. Thanks!

10-Day Blog Challenge…Day 10 (Thank Goodness It’s Over)


This could get interesting.

Picture 20One Confession

1. I’m not sure if writing a book is for me.

You know those two posts I did about writing a book and how much fun it was? I’ve stopped writing that book. I simply lost interest and stopped writing. It makes me very sad, but it is what it is. Maybe you never will see a book with “By Mikki Aaron” on the front cover.

Don’t start crying yet! Don’t lose hope! Things could turn around. Maybe there will be a book. Just not soon.

In hindsight, this might not be the most shocking confession I could have made, but the most shocking one could put my life on the line, not to mention the lives of countless civilians, my loved ones, and people who read this blog.

Blogging is just my escape, the way Clark Kent is Superman’s escape. It’s hard to be…you know, whatever…all the time. Sometimes you have to pretend you have a normal life. Tony Stark and I used to jokingly call this our “day job” until he decided to be an idiot and tell everyone that he’s Iron Man. So all this “mikkiaaron” and “Mikki Aaron” and “romantic poetry” and “mindless stupidity” I’m doing…it’s all just pretend. Even a…you know…needs a break sometimes. You know?

But in more important news, maybe all this book writing nonsense could have gone more smoothly. And maybe a novelist isn’t on my list of possible careers. Oh well, right?

Ciao for now,

10-Day Blog Challenge…Day 9


This has got to be one of the worst prompts of all time. But here we go.

Picture 20Two Smileys that Describe My Life Right Now

1.

Look at how frustrated he is. He looks like he’s about to murder something. He’s saying, “I’m gonna freaking cut you.”

I’m not this frustrated, but I am pretty darn frustrated. There are lots of things that are frustrating, almost exclusively having to do with my social life and/or family life.They’re normal person frustrations, but despite the fact that they could be much worse, they are quite frustrating.

2.

This guy looks so darn happy. I mean really. Just look at him.

This face is totally me because, despite my mild frustrations, I am content. Also, considering my tendency to think about romance…a lot…this blushy little thing could be me most waking hours.

Ciao for now,

Mikki

10-Day Blog Challenge…Day 8


Picture 20Three Turn-ons

1. Intelligence. I honestly do not have the power within me to date someone unintelligent. And when I meet someone who clearly is brighter than your average lightbulb, it kind of sets off a spark.

2. A well-dressed guy. There are a few looks that aren’t appealing to me at all––slouchy, swaggy, MC Hammer, and hipster, to give a few examples––but there is one that will just about do me in. That’s right: classy. Classy guys aren’t necessarily wearing hoity-toity suits with fancy ties. It could be as simple as a shirt that’s the right size and shorts that are an appropriate length (just above to just below the knee). Classy could be sweaters and dress shirts too, just don’t do it like this:

3. A nice laugh or smile. For some people, a smile can brighten up a whole face. In my eyes, someone who is enjoying himself is the most attractive. My favorite kind of smile is the one with teeth showing. My favorite kind of laugh is pretty much any laugh (unless it sounds like a choking horse; that’s what mind sounds like).

10-Day Blog Challenge…Day 7


Picture 20

Four Turn-Offs

1. Tobacco and/or drugs and/or alcohol. I don’t want to date someone who smokes. I don’t want to date someone who will be obedient to some dealer, for the purpose of illegal substances. And I most certainly do not want to date someone who gets drunk regularly.

2. Those shirts with memes on them. They seem to display that the wearer has no life, and on top of that can’t come up with jokes by himself.

No, just not interested.

No, just not interested.

Yes, yes you are.

Yes, yes you are.

…is what you'll be doing when I reject you, Lady Gaga.

…is what you’ll be doing when I reject you, Lady Gaga.

3. Annoying opinions. I won’t go into specifics ‘cuz I don’t want to offend anybody, but there are a lot of opinions that really tick me off. And those opinions will prevent me from dating the poor sucker who has them.

4. Moustaches. I get it, the whole “moustache” thing is in right now, what with necklaces and t-shirts. But they are not attractive. They make you look like a weird, creepy person when they’re by themselves on your face. And that’s why I will never date a guy with a moustache.

Oh, gross.

Oh, gross.

Ciao for now,

Mikki
