Blogger Spotlight Feature Update: Name Change

Blogger Spotlight Feature Update: Name Change

If you’ve been following Auntie Spinelli Reads, you know about my Tuesday feature, Blogger Spotlight, that I started back in July.    There have been a lot of other blogs starting something similar, and the name ‘Blogger Spotlight’ has now been taken by another blog (as well as ‘Book Blogger Spotlight’ by yet another).

Domain name and design change!

Also, after many grueling hours and a little bit too much money spent, I have finally finished re-designing! YAY! I am […]
