What's Cool? The Escapist.

Hey everyone! It's been forever since we talked about Cool stuff. Today I'm going to share you a really Cool thing--which I guess you already know. ;)

What's Cool? is an anytime meme created by yours truly. Let's talk about the Cool things I got, happened, about to happen and anything that I think is Cool!

  • The Escapist
Michelle Shouts Random is now The Escapist! Apart from that, I also launched the new blog look and celebrated my first blogoversary. This wonderful event won't be Cool without all of you who's been with me since the past year, the new people I met, and the awesome publishers and authors. Thank you so much, guys. You make all this blogging life so happy and exciting (apart from books). :)

Since I changed pretty much everything--title, layout, blog address--I also have to adjust some following stuff. I honestly didn't consider about it. I thought it won't bother if I change the blog address. But then I realized my feeds aren't updating on Networked Blogs, RSS and email. Thankfully, I have fixed them (except for the email; I have to check on that). I also created a new Facebook page (I was thinking of changing the name instead but Facebook won't let me because they are only allowing that for pages with 150 likes below) and Bloglovin. My Tumblr name has been changed as well. Make sure to check them all out and follow. If you're not into following but rather visit this page, it won't be a problem. You can add on your bookmark or just simply type it! :)

  • Heads up
So as you all know, I'm always busy and now that my senior year in college had started, I'm 100x busier. I just want to let you know that I may not update my blog as often as you're seeing right now. My schedule is super tight and I'll try my best to write a blog post. Don't worry, I won't be leaving blogging community (I can't imagine my life without this now). I'm just giving you a heads up with what you can expect here. But I promise that you'll enjoy my posts. :)

Once again, thank YOU for being Cool! Now it's your turn to talk about the Cool things you've got or happened!
