Notice anything different? Look closer... LOOOOOOOOK closer.
So happy 2014 everyone! (Well, tomorrow, but still...)
Yes. It's time to party because you've reached another year and a lot more stuff. Plus, I'm still on school break so I'm allowed to party.
But back to the "looking" thing. Do you see what's new? It's a new year so I thought I'd make some changes! And trust me, these changes are going to BLOW YO MIND! (And it blew mine because I never thought I'd be able to think of them.)
I don't know what I'm going to do this year, but it's going to be awesome. And I'm totally going to get to 100 thousand tweets! (Is it kind of sad that this is my main goal?)
The biggest change is the beautiful design and name.
Wanna hear about where "Out of Time" came from? So I was WHINING (yep, I really was) over DM with Jessi over my blog name. Then it got to the topic of Musings of a Blogder. Still can't get over how sucky that is. Ew. I still love my "Blogder" term, but it's lame and not even witty. No wonder I never get any ARCs. Haha.
Anyway, I wanted to name it "Teardrops on my Kindle" because I like Taylor Swift. (Fun Fact: this is also how Jessi got her blog name! So cool!) But I don't know if i'll still like Taylor afterwards and I don't want to change it AGAIN.
So why Out of Time?
I was about to have an aneurysm about the name. I wanted it to be a double meaning, but not too many words. It has to be about books and music yet not too obvious. I want something that's sort of a conversation starter.
"Ooh, what does (blog name) here mean?"
"What's the meaning bejind your blog name?"
Out of Time says two different things at once. It displays my lack of reading time and how I'm drowning in my TBR
See how smart Nova got? (Still think that I just got lucky.)
Who better than Stephanie at Hopeless Romantics? She's a fairy and she's amazing. Her designs are so pretty. They really are! And it was a friend named Dana who got her blog done and it caught my eye (here). I FREAKED out when I saw this design. My heart STOPPED. She sent me a proof of this design after she was done. This is (an underexaggeration) of my face:
It's similar to mine in the way where it still feels like home; a more furnished, matching and drool-worthy home.
So what do you think of the new blog? I'm still Nova and this is still my little blog. It's got a new look and a new name, but I've still got my "fresh" personality to keep this blog unique! And in 2014, I'm going to be trying to let go of the whole "nice, new girl" persona. Reality is that I'm way snarkier than I let on and it would be more fun if I showed that off. I'm so tired of playing it safe.
So what is your goal in 2014?
