A blog design shake-up and a bunch of other stuff!


New Designs:

It's a stormy Saturday night here in Ireland, so I am staying inside and planning on getting some major reading done.  Of course I got sidetracked and started playing around with my blog!  A while back, I commissioned some designs from Rachel at Parajunkee's View, and now you can see those designs on here.  I got a new header, which I love, and also a button for my Delightful Debutantes feature.  If you scroll down the page, you can see it, and if you click on it you can see all the interviews I've done for the feature all lined up ready and waiting for you to read. Fancy, huh!

If you have a particular love for Delightful Debutantes and would like to spread the word far and wide, feel free to grab the button for your blog.

Upcoming Events: 

I've also added a couple of extra features to the blog. I hope it's no too much of an overload for anyone since I like to keep things as simple and streamlined on here as I possibly can.

I've added an upcoming events feature where you can find out about any special upcoming happenings on the blog.  I've also listed upcoming Delightful Debutantes on there, so that if you're waiting on any particular author, now you can see when their Q&A is coming up! Of course, I will probably forget to update this after a couple of weeks, but I'll try not to!

Also, if anyone would like to see a particular author featured in Delightful Debutantes or has anything they'd like to see more of or less of on the blog,  feel free to drop me an email. My contact information is up there ^^ just under my swanky new header!

Bloglovin':

Did you know you can follow this blog on bloglovin'? Bloglovin' is actually my favourite way to follow blogs.  It's so much prettier than google reader, and I've found some great new blogs this way.  There is a bloglovin' widget further down the page if you have an account on there and want to add me. 


A Call for Guest Bloggers:

Melissa from I Swim For Oceans has put a call out for guest bloggers.  She is looking for a BAZILLION guest bloggers, to be exact! So, if you'd like to do a guest post at a great blog, you should head on over there and sign up.  I will be guest blogging over there later this year, but I'll tell you more about that nearer the date!




I think that's everything for now! Let me know what you think of the new designs and extra features, and enjoy the rest of the weekend! :)
