Sponsor Spotlight #3

Blogging

It's time again for another Sponsor Spotlight!! Wahoo! This time I'm featuring the lovely Jessica (our names are the same!!) who runs the Etsy shop Honeybee Alley! Which makes beautiful handmade jewelry and some of it is nickel free! Which means I can wear it, which is totally awesome!!  1. Tell us a little about yourself and your shop. How did you come up with your shop's name? I am a nerdy…

The Boyworm Introduction

Posts by Alex

Hey everyone, Alex here. Jess is officially off to Korea so that means we get to party! Woo hoo! Since I'll be sort of kind of taking over the blog (at least half way), I figured you'd all like to get to know me a little more and see what you can expect this place to look like for a while. Aside from my terrible writing style, you could probably…

The Bookworm is Taking a Break

Blogging, Life

Before anyone panics (not that I think anyone would panic over this haha) I'm not really taking a break, per say. I still will post, but only on Thursdays. The reason?  I'm going to Korea!! Yep, that's right! I'm going to visit Sarah in South Korea and while I'm there, we are traveling to Japan! Ahhh! It's SO EXCITING!! So, on that note, I'll be posting weekly mini updates about…

Great Christmas Exchange!

Blogging

This year I participated in the Great Christmas Exchange, which was hosted via Elfster! It was pretty awesome, I've never used it's service before, but it was really easy and fun to use! I drew Megan, who blogs over at Latte Everyday! She cooks a lot, so I got her some cooking supplies and a trusty starbucks gift card, because Latte is in her blog name after all! Anyways, I…

Sponsor Spotlight #2

Blogging

It's time for my second sponsor spotlight! Wow! I'm so happy to have my blogging friends hanging out on my sidebar!! I feel like I've lost some steam this month, but I'm going to get it back!! I will have some special announcements about the month of January, but I'll keep those under wraps for now! (Some people already know though haha!) Anyways, let's get started with highlighting my sponsors…

The Bookworm Does: 11 Facts

Blogging, Life

I was tagged for this 11 fact list by my lovely blogger friend Taylor! You can see her button over on my sidebar as well! She has a wonderful little blog and I'd suggest checking her out and reading through her pages! Anyways. I'm a huge fan of lists! Reading lists, to-do lists, christmas gift lists, and anything lists! So without further ado... If you could up and go to…

Sponsor Spotlight + Giveaway!

This is my first time ever doing a sponsor spotlight! I finally opened up my sidebar to sponsors and so far it's been a blast! I'm so thankful for my first ever set of two lovely paid sponsors! I'm also really happy about officially offering ad swaps as well for these lovely ladies: Jasmine, Jess & Loran, and The Subtle Hipster!!

I hadn't had time to fit it into my blog schedule until now but...thank you Marla! (Check out her blog! She has some lovely posts like: A Zodiac Post &  great travel tuesdays!)

Editorial Calendar

Blogging, Design

As I work on further growing my blog and on staying more organized (so I stop forgetting/mixing up dates) I've been working on a little personal design project, which is creating a really kick-butt editorial calendar for myself! I used to just keep to-do lists of blog posts in a little notebook and then I'd post ahead in Blogger by making empty drafts on whatever day I wanted a post…

Look Back at Old Series

Blogging

(function(i,s,o,g,r,a,m){i['GoogleAnalyticsObject']=r;i[r]=i[r]||function(){ (i[r].q=i[r].q||[]).push(arguments)},i[r].l=1*new Date();a=s.createElement(o), m=s.getElementsByTagName(o)[0];a.async=1;a.src=g;m.parentNode.insertBefore(a,m) })(window,document,'script','//www.google-analytics.com/analytics.js','ga'); ga('create', 'UA-44399366-1', 'auto'); ga('send', 'pageview'); I thought it'd be cool to look back at some of the old series I used to do on the blog. I might have only been blogging for a year, but things have really changed since I first started this blog. I've become a little more narrowed in my direction instead of pin balling all around the blogsphere. The series…
