Welcome to my new blog home!
I’ve got a welcome giveaway at the end of this post but first I can’t wait to show you around a little :) I’ve chosen a clean and simple design for my blog to reflect my personal style. In order to keep things nice and tidy I’ve kept the sidebar elements minimal. However over there under my picture you will find some social media icons. I’m hoping you will follow me as I continue my blog journey. I’ve opened up as many options as I can think of to allow people to keep up with this blog as easily as possible. So the posts will link into my Facebook and Twitter feeds, then there’s an option for BlogLovin’ and one to my Pinterest where I pop my cards but also the fabulous creations I see while hopping around your posts. Finally there’s RSS options to the Reader of your choice and where you can also sign up for email updates. Any questions; there’s an envelope icon to get in touch with me via email. If there is anything I can help with, pop me an email and we’ll sort it out :) Underneath those icons is another option; to follow by Feedly. I am currently trying out both BlogLovin’ and Feedly as a replacement for Google Reader. So far Feedly is winning out and I am delighted to see that my old blog has so many subscribers there so I guess I’m not the only one liking the Feedly format.
Now if you like something you see here and want to share it (great and thank you!) then I’ve got links to a whole bunch of options at the end of each post. Social media these days is fabulous and there are lots of different ways for people to gather inspiration so rather than stick to just one or two options, I’ve added lots of choices. I’m hoping you like the new format; to me it keeps everything nicely together and yet again that clean look I strive for.
Edited to add: the giveaway is now closed.
Now onto the fun part for you! I really appreciate everyone who calls by my blog and stops for a while. What better way to say thank you than a giveaway :) Please subscribe/follow this blog and then leave me a comment by 23:59 EST on 17 April on how you like to keep up with other bloggers; do you email subscribe, use a Reader, Facebook etc and I will draw a winner. If you share this on Facebook or Twitter you can pop back and leave another comment letting me know you’ve done so – two chances to win! Now I was pondering what to offer as my giveaway; stamps, dies, inks etc, and then it occurred to me that this post is all about choices – those available to follow and share this blog. With this in mind I thought I’d give you the choice about what you’d like to receive in this giveaway with a $30 gift certificate to my favourite online store Simon Says Stamp!
So what do you think? I hope you will stay a while and find your way around Lime Doodle Design :)
