2) A very big welcome to one of my best friends, Sami, to the blog world! It's the most rewarding feeling having someone tell you that you've inspired them to create their own blog. Sami lived on my floor this year, and we wrote for the Chronicle together, and went to the CMA conference in NYC together and shared a room. She's honestly one of my best friends, and one of the most amazing girls who shares a lot of things with me. She's also one of the best people to talk to!
3) Um, HI NEW BLOG COVER AND LOGO! Not sure if you noticed, but I got a little upgrade to my blog, thanks to my great friend Hannah! She was amazing and designed it all by herself, and she hit the nail right on the head with it. (Seriously, how me is that "the" with the heart.. so cute!) I've also been designing my own things, like my EC giveaway photo here, and the Friday Five logo above.
4) I just signed up for this blogger course with Blogelina (the best in the biz!) She teaches you all about how to revolutionize your blog, and she's phenomenal! I've only heard great things about her! Anyways, I've gotten a code to provide my readers with the course FOR FREE! The course is usually $17, and includes a free year of web hosting! But if you enter caromarie217 when they ask you for a code, you'll get the four-week course for free! It's entirely online, and even if you can't make a class (every Tuesday, 8-9pm), she emails you with what you missed! Seriously don't miss out! Click here to sign up!
