Howdy! You might notice that “The Bitter Lemon” got a bit of a facelift. It’s something I’ve been wanting to do for awhile now, but it took me a bit to find something that felt right.
So, welcome! It’s still going to be the same content you’re used to, just a bit of a different look – and I hope you’ll stick around.
I’ve been redecorating my apartment (which I will show here once I’m finished) and I’ve been showing bits and pieces of my life on my Instagram stories (@Orangejulius7), and I felt like my blog may as well reflect all of these changes, too!
As the new year approaches, I’m hoping to integrate even MORE of my life into the blog – such as – I’d love to make Blanche’s Book Club more interactive. I’ve even considered a podcast and/or downloadable travel guides (I’ve been spending hours planning my upcoming trip).
I’ve also been wanting to connect with people via Spotify – I love making playlists and discovering new music. So, to kick things off – I’d love for you to follow me on Spotify! My username is: 9krlbi2u656y0ykrz3cxfqu8f
I’m currently working on some holiday and travel playlists, but I want to see what you all are listening to!
In other news, I have been working on more gift guides that I’ll be posting ASAP. December is right around the corner, and if you’re anything like me and love to find a bargain, then it’s crunch-time for the holidays!
Finally, today is Small Business Saturday, and well, I’m a small business owner. I’ve got my Etsy Shop, which is currently hosting a 20% off sale (buy any 2 items, get 20% off + free shipping) – so if you need ornaments, costume pieces, or custom jewelry, please consider shopping small.
I also do contract work – social media, blogging, blog designing, blog consulting, so if you’re considering a New Year’s Resolution of blogging or creating an online presence, let’s chat: Holly@thebitterlemon.com.
And that’s that! I hope you all love the new look, and have a fantastic rest of your holiday weekend!
