So I’m trying my hand again at Tumblr. Macro-blogging no longer seems to be my forte, but I like gifs and micro updates, so Tumblr seems like the platform to do that. You can follow me over there, although I will be honest and admit that I’m still getting the hang of it. But it’s amandahocking.tumblr.com.
I also believe there’s a feature where you can ask me questions, and I am open to receiving questions, and I am also very open to receiving tips on how to better enjoy my Tumblr experience.
I guess my one issue with is that I see people reblogging all sorts of great and interesting content, but how do you find it in the first place? I’ve stumbled across a few neat things, but I don’t know how to figure how to find neat things consistently.
I’ve also been experimenting on Pinterest. I’ve got a couple boards going on now, with books and movies and just random things I like. I’ve used other boards to post inspiration for the Kanin series, and they’re secret right now, but I plan on making them public in the future. So you can check out my Pinterest boards here (if you’re into that sorta thing): www.pinterest.com/aehocking/
Also, I’ve updated my All Books tab to include Trylle: The Complete Trilogy. It’s a 3-in-1 special edition paperback that includes Switched, Torn, and Ascend, and it’s coming out January 6, 2015. It’s a great way check out series if you haven’t already, or to introduce to any of your friends that haven’t read it yet. And it’s just time for the release of Frostfire, the first book in the spin off series, The Kanin Chronicles.
And finally, in just some fun news, I got some fresh ink the other day. I’ve been plotting getting new tattoos to add to my arm for over a year, and I finally got around to do it earlier this week.
It’s a blue and purple peony, so I finally added some more color. I also had the black vines on my hand touched up, because they weren’t done very well the first time (or the second time around). I cannot stress enough how important is to vet your tattoo artist. Ink is permanent. Make you sure get it done right.
