Posted by Jessi (Geo) on September 9, 2012 | 6 Comments

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). I’m not too thrilled about it, but it’s not exactly an original name. So, my solution is: Change the name! Simple and easy (not to mention […]

Domain name and design change!

Domain name and design change!

I am happy to announce that I now officially host my own domain! I switched to custom domain from blogspot a couple days ago. The blogspot.com address should forward you to auntiespinellireads.com eventually, but right now it is still in the process of switching. This is why you can’t see my GFC widget. It can only be seen from auntiespinellireads.com from now on. Also, after many grueling hours and a little bit too much money spent, I have finally finished re-designing! YAY! I am […]

Or maybe not so speechless. Because I just can’t keep my mouth shut about my opinions…. I have spent the last hour and a half looking over tons of posts about the recent shame committed by Kristi @ The Story Siren, and I am simply taken aback. I could hardly believe it when I saw the news and as I’ve been reading, it’s become more and more obvious that it was not a simple mistake made out of ignorance. I am […]
