Writing Contest! And Some Other Stuff

Hello everyone! Today I have another educational/exciting sort of post because I really have nothing to post about! Super duper sorry! I have a post schedule in my Blog Binder (which I am hoping to do a post on for BBK, soon) but I haven't been able to do it for a long time. I also have had a writing contest planned since JUNE but haven't been able to finally get to it.

Today's post is going to be on writing. A lot of you love writing, hence the writing contest and the learning about writing.

My writing contest is going to be featured on letters so today I am going to talk about the different types of letters allowed in the contest.

A letter to a friend. This letter can be to a friend that you want to say something to, something you've wanted to say for a long time or a feeling that you've had.

A persuasive letter. This letter can be to your parents asking them for an iPhone. It can really be any letter that is persuading someone to do something.

A promotional letter. This letter is sort of a promotion toward your blog or something else. It is totally excepted and I'd love to see what you come up with.


Now, for the moment we've all been waiting for.........

This will have an HTML soon!

 
RULES AND REGULATIONS:
 
1) The topic is letters, I talked about the types of letters above and you must choose one!
 
2) The word limit is no more than 500 words and no less than 40 words. If you ask me for an exception I might give it.
 
3) The deadline is October 20, those who go past that date will not be judged. I only give extensions if asked.
 
4) There will be a first place only until I get more than 6 entries, then I will do 2,3 and maybe 4th place.
 
5) The prize is pretty exciting if I do say so myself.
-Your blog on BBK Biz Day
-A special feature on my blog.
-A pass for a free guest post either asking me on your blog or you on my blog.
-And a set of Blog Binder Printouts, created by me and my dad (who is a specialist in creating PDF files) for your blog binder! I will give pictures in next post!
 
 
I hope you all enjoy the contest and if you have any questions email me or comment. Contest entries can be emailed or posted on blog.
 
 
Thanks for reading,

Let's Talk About My Boring Life

Hello everyone! I have nothing to post about so let's talk about me today! Yay?

I got a letter in the mail asking if I wanted to be part of the math team for my school. At first I was like: (TENTH DOCTOR PIC!)

 
I read a little farther and saw "Each member of the winning team gets 100 dollars"
 
 
 
 
That's enough of math. Eww. Anyways, let's talk about Halloween! Yay?? I am going to be the Eleventh Doctor for Halloween! If you don't know who that is here is a fabulous pic of him:
 
 
 
And here is another fabulous picture of Matt Smith, the actor who plays him:
 
 
 
Perfection, in a picture. Okay, I am soooo rambling. This was a super short post but I am so sorry! Be sure to enter the BBK Feature Challenge! You are awesome people!

Fashion: The Result of Me Being Bored

Hello everyone! I don't know what to post about. I really have no clue. So, I am going to have to go to fashion posting, an idea I had a long time ago but ditched. I don't have any fashion sense whatsoever, but let's see what I think is "cute".

So, I went on Justice.com. I browsed through all the sections and saved some of the outfits I liked. These pictures are not mine, by the way.

 
I honestly really want this. I love the color, I love these kind of sweaters, and I LOVE the saying "Amazing things will happen". This sweater is like asking me to put it on.
 
 
Every girl needs a pair of simple leggings. I love black leggings, I have like 4 pairs. They go with every single shirt and are just fabulous. (In fact I am wearing some now.)
 
 
You guys all know how much I love to say the word Fabulous. Now, I can put it on a sweater! FABULOUS! It would go really well with those black leggings up there!
 
 
For some reason, I love these kinds of sweaters. They are just really cute. I like the gray one the best. (They had black and white) I would suggest wearing it with a white or black tanktop underneath and really any color leggings.
 
 
One word, UNICORNS! Two of some of my favorite things combined: unicorns and Halloween. This shirt is perfection.
 
 
Yay, soccer! I also really like the color of the shirt, that greenish-blue is very pretty and it looks like the color on my nails!
 
 
Zebra leggings! Could this post get any more perfect? Even better, the website says the leggings are sparkly! Ultra fabulous! I would sooooo buy these.
 
 
Now to end the post with some fabulous tribal leggings. These things are too cute, I lovveeeeee them. I also saw some yellow and red ones that were cute too. (Am I secretly in Amity? Only Divergent fans would know.)
 
 

 
Welp, that's enough of horrible fashion sense! Tell me in the comments which one you liked best and be sure to enter the BBK Feature Challenge!
 
Thanks for reading,

Mount Tambora: The Volcano You Don't Know About

Hello everyone! Today, I am talking about a volcano which you probably have not learned or heard about, Mount Tambora. But first, lets go through this week's post schedule. I decided to do this just to help me out and for you guys to see what will most likely be happening on the blog until next Saturday. (Somedays I will not be posting

RULES: For some days I will have two options, you as readers can choose which one!

Monday: DIY (ideas, anyone?) or opinion post.
Wednesday: Lifestyle posting: Cultural Food
Friday: Free Choice Friday (Vote at the end of post)
Saturday: Educational Post (ideas....)


What is/was Mount Tambora?

Have you heard of Mount Tambora? I'll give you a hint, it is on the island of Sumbawa. Still nothing? Okay here is a map of Sumbawa for you:

 
 
Now you see it? Well, Sumbawa is an island in Indonesia and Mount Tambora is one of the deadliest volcanos in the world.
 
 
What did Mount Tambora do?
 
In around 1815, a volcano called Mount Tambora exploded. No one knew it was a volcano, it was just a mountain. A quiet mountain, until one ominous day.
 
When it erupted, a pyroclastic surge boomed out from the volcano, destroying everything in its path. 12,000 people were killed almost instantly, houses and crops were destroyed, and the once beautiful island of Sumbawa was now in ruins. 90,000 more people were died of hunger in the months following.
 
 
 
 
How Did the World React?
 
To be honest, the world didn't even know. British sailors saw the eruption happen but since it took 4 months to travel from Sumbawa to London, there was nothing that could be done.
 
Some Englanders knew about the eruption, but didn't really do anything about it. They didn't know where Sumbawa was and it was way too far away.
 
 
What Happened After?
 
The year after, 1816, was a disaster. Weather all around the world was so abnormal.
 
In North America, there were unusual snowstorms, in June. In Europe, many northern seas
(which were supposed to be frozen) unfroze so British sailors thought it was safe to sail on; many got frozen when the ocean unexpectedly froze up again.
 
In India, there was an abnormal monsoon season (rainy season). There were floods which caused an outbreak of a disease called cholera. In China, cold weather killed crops and cattle so people starved to death.
 
How Did This Happen?
 
Scientists are not actually completely sure on what happened but I'll give you the basics.
 
Usually when a volcano erupts, the volcanic cloud disappears almost immediately. For Tambora, it was a different case. The cloud went high up into the stratosphere (because of the immense power of the volcano) and ejected high amounts of volcanic ash into the air, causing the weather to change.
 
Scientists studied a different volcano, Mount Pinatubo in order to help learn more about Tambora.
 
What Happens to Tambora Now?
 
According to my sources, Tambora is still active. There are signs that it could erupt again but the chance is very low. If it were to erupt again, we would be more prepared and we could be there to help because of today's technology.
 
 
Alright guys, I hope you enjoyed! I also hope you learned something new!
 
As an extra, answer this question: "Why don't people know about Tambora?". Maybe your answer will be featured in another post or on a BBK Biz Day post! (Whoops, I might have revealed the special surprise....)
 
Thanks for reading,
Noor

I Am Malala- Book Talk

Hello everyone! I recently finished the book I Am Malala. I decided to do a book talk because there are a lot of things I wanted to talk about.

THE OVERVIEW

Malala Yousafzai is a 16 (I think) year old Pakistani girl who has a big story. When she was only 15 years old, she was shot in the head. She was a big activist for women's rights and more specifically women's education. Her home, Swat Valley in Pakistan, didn't give very equal rights to women. They believed that women should stay home and cook, clean, and take care of children. Men were thought as the superior gender.

She and her family didn't believe in this, she stood up for what she believed in and wrote a blog about her life as a girl living in Swat under a different name. Her father was also an activist so she started to go to a lot of events and soon started giving speeches of her own. Malala was Pakistan's heroine. She believed everyone is equal and so do I.

THE TALK

I believe no man/woman is greater than the other, we are all equal.
No matter how tall, or how small, we are all equal.
No matter what gender, man or women, we are all equal.
Age doesn't matter either, we are still all equal.
We were created to help, not harm.
We were created to save, not kill.
If every human being in this world believes like me, we will be equal.

I wrote this little poem, We Are All Equal, to share how I feel and how Malala feels. She was shot, but she was shot for a reason that she felt so passionate about. It inspired me and she inspired me to write this blog. I wanted and still want to be just like her when I grow up.

The book was amazing. It was detailed and written so beautifully. I enjoyed reading about how Malala lived. It was so interesting to learn about where my mother visits every year. (I'll explain in the next paragraph)

Every year, my mom goes to Pakistan. She visits family and does research. Most of her research is on Swat Valley. She learned about the Taliban (a terrorist group in Pakistan) and how girls/women like Malala lived. She even met Malala's father which I thought was awesome.


Anyways, I should stop before I ramble too much. I totally recommend this book and give it a 4 out of 5 stars. I hope you enjoyed and be sure to enter the BBK Feature Challenge, we've had our first entry but June of Curious Pieces!

Thanks for reading,
Noor

Goals

Hello everyone! You must be like WHHHHAATT? Two posts in a row? Awesome! (Maybe…) But today I want to talk about goals, how to set them and how it feels like when you achieve them. As an example, I am going to use my blogging goal. 

When I started blogging, which was February 2013, I thought I would never get to where I am now. But then, I created a goal. My goal was to get an average of 2 comments a post, 30 page views a post, and a feature/link to my blog that I didn't ask for. Guess what? I achieved all of those goals. 

Wanna know how? Hard work. I commented, posted, and linked all day. (I'll explain allll about that on Thursday in my BBK post.) I never gave up. No matter how unpopular my blog was, I didn't care. My goal was to do what I said I would do and that's it. 

Finally, after 1 month of working. I got my first comment. Then more comments rushed in. Now, I get an average of 3 comments per post. That's more than I wanted! 

Soon, my page view numbers started rising. Now, I get 40-50 page views per post. Again, more than my goal was. My most popular post has 356 page views! WOWWW! 

What's left? A feature/link. Now that took some time. I didn't learn that I had one (four actually) until 2 weeks ago. Teachers have been teaching their kids about blogging and used my blog as an example. I know that may not seem like much but it is awesome. My blog is good enough that it can be a teaching example, that's cool. I even got some feedback from some of the students which helped me a lot.

So basically, there are 4 steps to setting goals.

1. Create a reasonable goal. Don't make the goal too hard like: score 10 goals in a soccer game. Not even the Germans could do that!

2. Work! A very big factor in achieving your goal is to work for it. If you really want to achieve that goal, you gotta work hard! That goal isn't gonna achieve itself!

3. Wait. It is going to take time to achieve your goal. (Unless it is a quick goal, not like mine) Don't worry if you don't get your goal of 50 page views in the time you wanted. You have to wait for people to find your blog. Or if it is something else, then you still have to be patient.

4. Feel proud. You did it! You achieved your goal. Go ahead, pat yourself on the back. Doesn't it feel great to achieve your goals! 


Hope you enjoyed today's post and be sure tell me what your goals are in the comments! Don't forget to enter the BBK Feature Challenge! Deadline is Sept 30!!!

Thanks for reading,
Noor

Autumn

Autumn
I walk outside on a chilly, autumn day.
The quiet breeze makes the leaves on the trees dance.
As I walk, the leaves rustle and crunch under my feet.
Another breeze makes the trees sway to and fro.
I grab my sweater and keep moving.
A small chipmunk scurries away, into a dark hole.
A little doe runs swiftly to find its mother.
I sit for a while, admiring nature.
Watching the trees dance, the squirrels run around each other.
I know, autumn is here.
 
 
Hello everyone! I hoped you enjoyed that little poem. I wrote it as I took a walk in my backyard. I also took some pictures, want to see?  I hope you like it....
 
Autumn is.............

Fabulous FRIDAY= DIVERGENT!!

Hello everyone! Today, I am doing a book review/book talk about the book DIVERGENT. I just finished Insurgent today but I will do a review on that later...

DESCRIPTION

In Beatrice Prior’s dystopian Chicago world, society is divided into five factions, each dedicated to the cultivation of a particular virtue—Candor (the honest), Abnegation (the selfless), Dauntless (the brave), Amity (the peaceful), and Erudite (the intelligent). On an appointed day of every year, all sixteen-year-olds must select the faction to which they will devote the rest of their lives. For Beatrice, the decision is between staying with her family and being who she really is—she can’t have both. So she makes a choice that surprises everyone, including herself.
During the highly competitive initiation that follows, Beatrice renames herself Tris and struggles alongside her fellow initiates to live out the choice they have made. Together they must undergo extreme physical tests of endurance and intense psychological simulations, some with devastating consequences. As initiation transforms them all, Tris must determine who her friends really are—and where, exactly, a romance with a sometimes fascinating, sometimes exasperating boy fits into the life she's chosen. But Tris also has a secret, one she's kept hidden from everyone because she's been warned it can mean death. And as she discovers unrest and growing conflict that threaten to unravel her seemingly perfect society, she also learns that her secret might help her save those she loves . . . or it might destroy her.

REVIEW

I adored this book. It has now ended up as my second favorite book. I love how it is written, how you can always understand what is going on. Also, I couldn't put the book down. I read it from start to finish for 2 hours straight. It was impossible to stop, they are that good. I would totally recommend this book although it does have some strong kissing scenes so maybe 10+. I would rate it 4 stars. Next up I have the fangirling section which has all the spoilers so if you have read the book, you may view the next section.


FANGIRLING

Veronica Roth, I hate you, but I love you at the same time. Okay so TRIS and FOUR!!! Totally the best couple since Amy and Rory/Hermione and Ron. They are like totally perfect.

 
But why must you kill, Veronica? WHY? Will was like my favorite character, he was so awesome, but nope, under simulation, dead.
 
 
 
 
Plus, Tris's reaction when her mom died, I cried like a lot.
 
 
There were a lot of things I didn't like such as how it was soooo much like the Hunger Games. I liked this one better but still. Factions= Districts. War between factions= war between Capitol and rebels. SAME THING.
 
 
 
I kind of wanted Christina and Caleb to be a thing. It would be like Ron and Hermione. The fun one bringing joy and fun to the smart and quiet one, perfect!
 
 
 





But I did totally fangirl at every Tris and Four moment, it was magical! I also fangirled when Christina told Tris she kissed Will.

 
 
 
 
Welp, that's enough fangirling for one day! Make sure to enter the BBK Feature Challenge! Even if you have already been featured, you can still win something cool!
