I love blogging.  I spend way more time blogging than I ever imagined but it doesn’t bother me at all because it is something that I truly enjoy.  That said though, I have a few favorite blogging tools that make my life a little easier and blogging a little faster.  I know I am always wondering what other bloggers use for their day to day blogging stuff so I thought I would share mine with you!

The Updated Blog

So, last week, you guys got a fun surprise and new blog design showed up here!  Monica, from Designer Blogs, worked her buns off to create the awesome design and all the great stuff that went along with it.  If you are shopping for a new blog design, I HIGHLY recommend them {and no, they did not pay or perk me to say that}!

A few of the highlights of the new design:
- Drop down menus: This will make it easier for you guys to find posts that fit into the categories you are interested in.  These do require me to update the categories on all of my posts which is a slow process so be patient with me…I will get them all organized!

- New Buttons:  Yep, those changed too!  Please be sure to update the button on your page :) You can grab the code from the sidebar or by visiting the Grab a Button page.

- Additional social media buttons.  You can now follow me via Google+ and BlogLovin simply by clicking on the icons in the sidebar.

- A fancy new picture.  I have the lovely Elevee Photography to thank for my awesome pictures.  My friend, Kere, hooked me up with some Stella & Dot jewelry to wear and Erica worked her camera magic.  I’m still trying to decide which picture is my favorite so you may see that picture in the sidebar change a few times :)

- LinkWithin – Now, each post has links to other relevant posts at the bottom. I hope it helps you find more content that interests you!

I think those are the major highlights of the blog design.  I had a great time working with Monica and she really helped me put my ideas into a real website.
