Changes are happening!
I’ve been toying with the idea of changing the look of this blog for a few months, but I never really got around to it. When bed rest started last week, I knew that THIS was the perfect opportunity to brainstorm, design, and make some changes to the blog. In doing this, I also seem to be scratching that slightly obnoxious nesting itch that I seem to have all day, everyday.
Let me first start off by saying that the change is more of a facelift. The content, posting schedule, etc. will stay (relatively) the same. The one area that I’m hoping to change is increasing MY interaction with you all. To be honest, I’m not sure what that will look like; it’ll be a surprise to us all!
Now you may be wondering how The Colorful Notebooks title came about…
In trying to come up with a name for anything, for me, is complicated. This blog was no exception. I wanted a name that yelled that’s Alaina when people visited my little space of the internet. While brainstorming, I realized that I was surrounded by notebooks, planners, color-coordinated calendars (both paper and digital), and colorful pens. Every idea, list, event, bill, pre-planing thought, and beyond sits in one of the MANY colorful notebooks. You could flip open any one of my notebooks and know exactly what occurred that day and time.
It seemed that renaming the blog The Colorful Notebooks was that quintessential Alaina thing I had been looking for.
So now that we’ve gotten the obvious out of the way, I’m curious as to what you all would like to see. It can be wanting to see more or less of a type of post, a new idea or series you’d like me to discuss, ANYTHING. I am open to suggestions and curious as to what you’re interested in! You can let me know in the comments below or on any of my social media platforms (Instagram, Facebook).
