*Aren't they cute XD* Hi again and we're back for part 2 of thy blog-o-versary! If you missed the first part click here and enter the giveaway that ends TONIGHT at 12am here! Now onto the post.
As we continue this trip back in time...I love bookish SWAG and giveaways! Not just entering but also hosting them. Want to know why? Because I got most of my books and signed goodies from them, so i love spreading the love and making someone else out there get some feels at winning something. To me I had NEVER won anything from a giveaway and then I suddenly was winning a giveaway almost every day, it was utter crazy! The first signed book I won was SWEET EVIL by Wendy Higgins. She sent it all fancy and I even did a whole post on it here.
Want to know something crazy, I didn't request any physical ARCS until this past summer :O All the ARCS up until then had been won through giveaways or I requested online but never had a physical copy until in my hands. So no I didn't start this blog for the free books or ARCS either, I literally just though "hey why not? I see a lot of cool people here doing it" so I did XP
Now let's travel through blog headers!!! My blog has really changed from it's early days. It's gone from weird to generic to crazy to bookish to *hopefully* cool. I can't really stick with one design all the time. That's why I never payed for a design and picked up coding and designing. Now I was pretty good at art but I had never dabbled in the magical world of computer graphics before. So it was all so confusing and foreign to me. My first blog header was a complete MESS. Well see how I improved below [l to r]:
See ALL THAT! Those took hours of work to get these babies up on the blog but I had at least 3 different variations for each one XD OH THE WORK!! But in the end it led me to become a better graphic designer and make loads of blog designs for other people. I love making things and this is a place where I can show and share all the cool things I was able to create.
So I guess that's it for today. Oh yeah the giveaway! Almost forgot *silly me* There will be TWO winners; ONE WINNER WILL GET A COMPLETE BLOG DESIGN FROM ME and ONE WINNER WILL WIN A RANDOM YA BOOK! All you have to do is ANSWER THE QUESTIONS BELOW AND LEAVE UR EMAIL IN THE COMMENTS! It's open internationally and ENDS SUNDAY at 12am! Question's below:
