|Sneak peak of my business cards courtesy of KD Designs!|
Look at this beautiful new blog design! The flowers, the pink, the greens, the fonts! I'm so in love with it I could just cry! (My eyes are already suspiciously shiny.) The spectacular, wonderful, amazing, insert-every-good-adjective-here Katie from KD Designs made this blog design for me. Guys, if you need any blog design work done, business cards, bookmarks, invitations, etc. Katie is your girl. She's sweet, professional and extremely patient with people. Especially someone like me that didn't really have a clue what I wanted until Katie showed it to me. She was also willing to go above and beyond to make sure my design was exactly how I wanted it. Agh, I just want to hug her so much! (Katie also happens to be the brilliant mind behind Sophistikatied Reviews, check out her blog if you like.)
Guess What? I also have brand-spanking-new business cards! Me! They actually say YA Book Blogger on them, are so gorgeous and have all my information. I can't wait to go to a book event and hand them out. This is incredibly exciting to me!
There has been a drop in posting recently. Many reasons exist for this, none of which I feel inclined to bore you with or defend. Basically, I recently re-examined my view of the blog and how I was treating it. I was extremely unhappy to realize I'd basically been half-assing my involvement for months. Blogging is something I love (as much as it doesn't seem like it at times). I'm greatly disappointed in myself for using the advice "you don't have to post something every day" as an excuse not to post anything at all.
Starting now, I'm renewing my dedication and commitment to this blog. Posting will be more consistent and well thought out. I will continue the things I've started and see them through. The blog is going to become a place I am proud to call my creation again. I am taking back what is mine, no more half-assery.
That is all the news I have for now, stay tuned for further updates!
