From the time I was old enough to know what one was, I have loved books. All sorts of books make my heart skip a beat. E-books and hardcover books, non fiction and fiction, poetry and young adult fiction too. I penned my first booklet when I was in grade two, illustrated and cowritten with a cute little tow headed boy named Matt who was paired with me often for team work projects. Back then my Book Posts and Booklets were cardboard paper and pencil with some staples thrown in. Digital publishing has come a long way since the second grade. I wrote for a lot of years before I started blogging. I studied literature and collected bylines and adored reading and writing so much I made it my career. Five years ago I started my main blog Thrifty Momma’s Tips. The main blog is still live and going stronger than ever. In the interest of keeping my passion for reading and books alive I started a book review blog in November of 2009, roughly six months after I started the main blog. Thrifty Momma’s Brain Food was born. Hard to believe, I have had a book review blog living over on blogger for almost five years. But recently I decided I wanted to make the leap to WordPress. So I contacted my amazing friend Kristen Paskus and asked her what she thought. Kristen is a talented blogger living in Alberta. She is a Mom of three great kids and a cat lover. You can read her blog here at My Three Lil Kittens. She is also super talented at web design and web makeovers and she offered to help me move my blog and get familiar with WordPress. And so, for the month of July, we have been working on this little project. Today, it’s ready for the big reveal and I am ready to breathe a new life into this space. The move to WordPress from Blogger has been a long time coming. A few factors tipped the scale for me. The SEO options and the plug ins are the biggest reason for me to finally make the move to WordPress. I think Kristen did an awesome job and I am happy to be able to share this newer, improved version of my book review blog with all my readers.
I hope you will find something fun to read here, or an idea for your next great read. What do you think of the makeover?
