Beware the Flutterbat! She's going to suck your Apples!


This is an astounding testament to how quick and skilled this fandom is. Honestly, it's hardly been a day since Bats! aired and some talented brony has already made this completely fab handmade Flutterbat plushie. Here's the link to the eBay listing!

It's already as of this post got 77 bids and at a whopping $1050, that's roughly £635. It even hangs..!


Advertising!


For the longest time I was against putting adverts on this blog. Since it's just a blog after all, I have no finical cost with running this site and especially since the guys over at the UKoE manage to host a huge forums and pay for all of it out of their own pocket, I certainly didn't think adverts on my site would be a good or fitting idea.

However, there has been one little thing plaguing me! You guys should remember the contest we ran for Halloween! The banner contest and the winner got a £10 Amazon gift card! Well I paid for that myself, obviously but i'd love to do more contests throughout 2014. But for that we need a bit of a fund, or at least something to go towards the cost of buying prizes! So, this is where adverts come in! Using an online calculator i've figured out that we could get around £5 a month. Ok it's not exactly a huge sum of money, certainly not going to buy my way to Mexico to live with the Cholo Bronies. But it sure is going to allow me to run more contests and offer better prizes!

Now I am uncertain how much revenue we could be getting from this. So this is my promise to you all, if after a good couple of months we're seeing no finical gain from this, I'll be booting the ads! Not going to have them there if they aren't serving a purpose! Don't worry, i'll make sure there are prizes no matter what! Even if it's a dinner date with me and MUSH, I am sure you'll all enjoy that.

>the feel when the only ads we're getting are for Google's products

Merry Hearths Warming!


Hope you're all enjoying your Christmas so far. I for one am, woke up to some dollar, yeah, dollar, not Sterling. I swear I am not denouncing the monarch or anything, rather I am going to America in a few months, just had to mention that. 

Oh and Film4 are currently airing Spirited Away so you guys should totally watch it.

Once again, Merry Christmas! I hope Santa brought you all like a shed load of ponies.

BronyScot updates it's image and Logo!


BronyScot, the upcoming convention in Edinburgh, Scotland, has just announced a new brand and logo~! Designed by the wonderful Katie Ferguson (remember, the winner from our banner contest??!). I love it, and so does the rest of the committee. It's unique, modern and of course, very Scottish.

To go along with the new logo, Katie also drew a fantastic high detail Nessie, the convention's mascot! Check out her Deviant Art here!


Nessie's creator, Darren, should totally have some sort of story written up for her at some point soon. We'll have to keep poking him.. with haggis.

Moth Ponies, now a thing.


So the Bat-Pony threads have taken one of their oddest turns yet. Moth ponies are now a thing. I guess this has something to do with Glaze? Certainly an adorable filly, I do in fact want to see where this one's going to go. Though there is always the chance they'll fade away into nothing within a few hours, like the kangaroo ponies did. Now they were weird!
