About Me

Hey everyone! My name is Ashley, I’m 15 years old, in 10th grade and I study online using the RonPaulCurriculum. I live in Montana, USA and I love the Old West, the ocean, winter and Donald Trump.

I love to play ping-pong and I write stories in my spare time. I’m also totally horse crazy! I read any horse book I can get my hands on, and I’m building a model horse collection. ย I also like to play chess and checkers, I read a lot and when winter comes around I can’t wait to go skiing!

  1. Hey Ashley I was just in Montana this last Thursday! We went to a hot springs resort called Quinns near Paradise. Have you ever been there?
    I love your state! Maybe next time I pass through we could meeet up!

      1. Paradise is a very small town in eastern Montana. It is sort of in a valley but unfortunately I don’t think it is called Paradise Valley. It is about 30 miles away from St. Regis MT, 5 miles away from Plains MT, and 35 miles away from Thompson Falls, MT which really close to the Idaho border.
        There is a very likely chance that we will be returning to Montana in the near future. I’ll keep you posted ๐Ÿ™‚

        1. Okay. Livingston is almost all the way on the other side of Montana. It’s an hour’s drive from Yellowstone Park and close to the Southeastern border. I don’t think we can meet up unless your parents are willing to drive really far.

          1. I’m planning to rename my blog The Essay House or The House Of Essays and the tagline Life Is Fun. I’m also planing to change the theme to adventure journal.

    1. Thank you! I really didn’t do anything on purpose to make me ‘famous.’ I have had my blog for a year, and I have had many ups and downs. The thing that I think is most important, besides content, is consistency. If you post consistently, say, every week a new post, people will come to check you out every week. Another key is tagging. I tag my posts a lot. Also, I offer other content than just my essays. I think that time and consistency will make you famous. That’s all I did.

    1. It was mostly you and me talking the other day, before that I had only thirty. How long have you had your blog? If you’ve had it for only a month or so, you’ll get more views, don’t worry, it just takes time. ๐Ÿ™‚

  4. Just reading about you, you love literally everything I like to do. I am 13. My favorite animals are horses. We just moved to Idaho and we now have the space to get horses! I love writing and I have even before I knew how to write! I would scribble on the lines of the paper. I paint and draw all the time! Just in these few days, I have drawn poppies and Lavender flowers.

    Great job with your blog and keep moving forward!

    1. It’s a theme called Spirit. It’s free and you can have the background in light blue (what I have), midnight blue, green and grey. I change to it around Christmas time and then I change back to my old blog. Happy you like it!

    1. Thanks, Hanna! I’ve been teetering for a long time on between this new theme and the old one, Big Brother. I was afraid that the menu would be hard to navigate, but I’m glad it’s not. Thank you!!

  5. I only have one complaint about your otherwise awesome blog. Under School Essays, then High School, then Ninth Grade, then business (or biology, etc.), it goes on for so long that I can’t read what is next! xD Is there a way that you could move it so that it doesn’t go off my screen?

    1. I know!! It’s so annoying. I can’t make it any better. It’s a glitch in the theme that I can’t make it go to the left. ๐Ÿ˜ฆ But don’t worry about reading it, because it’s just subtitles for the Business, English I, Biology and P.F. This is what they are (in the order listed above): Business I, Autobiographies, The Study of Life, Personal Finance. Nothing important. Sorry I can’t fix that!

  6. My family had to go through hoops to sell food to people. Licenses and permits and inspections. Did you have to do that? I am only asking (not that I think we are competing!) because some of us spend money to be able to sell and it is kind of unfair. And also you could get in trouble if you don’t have certain papers. You may want to look into the requirements to sell baked goods online in your state.

          1. Yeah, I had my bread in our local grocery store for about a month waaaay back in March and April. Then I downsized the business a little because I wasn’t making any profit, so I a currently selling through my local food pantry to the hospital and I also sell to private people.

          2. Fun!!! I like baking the bread. I do love decorating cakes, though!!! It’s so much fun! I’ve done some simple ones, like for our own birthdays, but never ones as complicated as those!! My mom made a wedding cake once when she worked at a bakery. It was so cool!!!

          3. Cool! you should post pictures of what you made! I need to post some of mine too. That is awesome your Mom made a wedding cake! I made one with my mom last year. It made my mom very nervous. For some reason I wasn’t bothered. I get nervous about piano recitals but not my work. You would think it would be the other way around. lol

  9. Have you ever went skating? Not so many people in the USA have ever went skating. It is maybe because that there is not so many ice rinks. My favourite horse is an Arabian Horse. What is your favourite?

    1. I have been skating a couple of times. My sister really likes skating, although we don’t go very often. I really like draft horses……I think my favorite breed is the Noriker. But I also really like Arabians, Tennessee Walking Horses and the American Standardbred.

      1. Nauvoo has these draft horse rides that are for free. They have three types of draft horses. They have Belgians, Percheron and I forget what was the other breed. I got absolutely no idea if you have been to Nauvoo. They have this show that is every day like at seven. If you have not been to Nauvoo you should go. It is fun over there. They do not really have a grocery store.

  10. Have you ever read Princess Academy or Rangers Apprentice or Brother Band Chronicles or Warriors. So far the most common book that I know is Harry Potter. I haven’t read Harry Potter myself. My favourite book is Warriors by Erin Hunter. It is about cats. I cannot figure out which one is my second favourite.

    1. The first two books of Ranger Apprentice is not so good. But if you get past those two books it gets way more interesting. To either understand Brotherband Chronicles completely, you need to read Ranger Apprentice. Ranger Apprentice ties in one of the Brotherband Chronicles books

      P.S The Rangers have specially trained horses. They even can read the horses body language, but that is because the horse and Ranger are BFF’s. In Halt’s Peril it is hilarious.

          1. Oooph, I think I really like a book called John Adams. It’s a biography. I also like the Whalesong Trilogy. The Secret of the Andes, Gentle Ben and Longfellow’s poems all rank up there too. It’s so hard to pick a favorite!!

          2. John Adams is a biography about the second president, the Secret of the Andes is about an Incan boy who takes care of llamas and how he has to find himself and what he really wants, Gentle Ben is about a boy who has an Alaskan brown bear for a pet, the Whalesong Trilogy is about whales and the ocean. It’s really, really awesome. And I guess you know Longfellow.

    1. Thanks, Justice. On my blog it’s automatic….let’s see if I can find it for you…
      Okay, so you go to “General Settings”, scroll down, and near the bottom you should see a box that you can click that should say “Show falling snow on my blog until January 4th”. And that’s it! I think after you click it once it does it every year. Happy I could help!

    1. Thanks!! Hm…..I’d say be consistent (something I’m very bad at, ๐Ÿ˜€ ) and post interesting stuff, which you have. Other than that, just be you on there, same as you would be with your friends and enjoy!! I didn’t do anything to get popular (if I am). It just happened. Put your stuff out there and see who grabs. Good luck!
