Hello, and welcome to Lead the Revels. You know me (probably?? I mean, possibly?) as Daisy Paquet, blogger, author, sarcastic tweeter, sporadic instagrammer, dragoncologist, Goodreads reviewer, YWP’er, etc… and actually a lot of these things are… no longer true. I no longer do Instagram or Twitter and I am taking a long break from the YWP and Goodreads. So… I mean, I’m still Batgirl and I’m still a dragoncologist??
But it was time for something fresh, new, and shiny. I blogged at Caught Daydreaming for, like, ever (okay for years isn’t forever, shut up.) but I was getting a little… tied down, boxed in. I’ve grown in four years, and it was time for a fresh start with a new shiny batmobile. Like when Michael Keaton was replaced by Christian Bale (except tbh Keaton was better… not my best analogy…. give me a second… *drops notecards* ) AND STUFF LIKE THAT.
This project is something I’ve kept secret for so long (okay, a month, good grief guys) and I’m so excited to FINALLY be unveiling the new blog–
LEAD THE REVELS: Reveling in God’s creation.
What does that gif have to do with leading the Revels? Plenty of things. For instance– Oh, wow, you’re absolutely right. It has nothing to do with leading the revels. (I almost typed ‘them rebels’ so um yeah…)
IF SOMEHOW YOU’RE NEW TO THE PERSON WHO IS DAISY AND THE BLOGS THAT HAVE BEEN HER I’ll break it down for you, man.
I’m a Christian, selfpub authoress and a batman-obsessed dragon queen. The mortals should fear me. I have too many fandoms and the TBR is my bff, man. Zaphod Beeblebrox is my SPIRIT ANIMAL. I’m BATMAN. I will be reviewing books, sharing writing snippets, sassing you to death, and being a froody being. I’m a little bit crazy, but since I know I’m crazy, I can’t be crazy, right?
This blog is meant to commemorate a new era in my writing life, in my spiritual life, in my Dragoncologist life, in my batman-ing and basically… just a new era in general. I mean, the Old Taylor is dead so it was time for a fresh start for everyone, right??
This blog will still have the following: sarcasm, batman references, and book reviews. The book reviews will have more content ratings (!!!) and will hopefully be… a bit… longer.
This blog will also have: More stuff about my family, my life, my awkward attempts to conquer realms, more encouraging posts, and more dragons. Because we all needed more dragons, right? Of course we do! What a silly question.
Before I had not wanted this to be a ‘lifestyle’ blog because so many lifestyle blogs felt… fake to me. Or kind of like they were trying to TELL me how to live MY life. I never wanted to do those things?? And I still don’t. My goal with this blog is to share Christ’s love, encouragement, and Batman to the very ends of the earth and beyond.
So, in a way, I guess this is a lifestyle blog. Kind of. It’s not an ordinary lifestyle blog; it’s a Daisy-style lifestyle blog, which means ‘I’ll share funny stuff and encouragingish stuff and basically hope that I’m enriching your lives although I seriously doubt it, Merry Christmas everybody.’
My mom said this was ‘a lot of rambling’ and for that I’m sorry, guys. It’s kind of hard to get my thoughts together sometimes.
So. Yeah. Now that that’s sorted, I’m going to go find some delicious and amazingly warm coffee. It’s cold in the winter.
Remember, keep reveling in God’s creation.
How do you like the new site? Excited? Disappointed in me (how could you)? Are you a froody being (pfft of course you are)? Keaton or Bale or Noncommittal Grunt? I’M GOING TO BE MAKING MORE FORMATTING/GRAPHICS CHANGES BTW SO ARE YOU EXCITED?
Have a decent rest of the day, earthlings and extraterrestrials! 😉
