Bloggiesta and My New Blog

Maw Books Blog is hosting Bloggiesta to ecourage bloggers to whip their blogs into shape! There are challenges, prizes and great tips from book bloggers on how to improve your blog! The event ends Sunday the 13th.

In my recent post on
Branding, I mentioned I didn't care for my blog (old) name, Time Out. My (old) layout has been giving me issues as well. Bloggiesta has motivated me to make a major change. I have started a new blog with a new URL at The Prairie Library. So, in order to keep following my posts head over to my new (this) site and follow me there (here)! In a few months I will shut down Time Out so, say goodbye to the old and in with the new! I  hope you like my new layout! Other than that, expect more of the same as you get at Time Out.

For the Blog Improvement Mini Challenge: I have three immediate goals: 1 - get my old readers switched over to my new blog! 2) store up posts/book reviews this summer before school starts and pleasure reading goes out the window and 3) get a guest post!


  1. Helloooo Chelle! I've found you again. And followed you, too. The new blog looks great - I fully understand rebranding. I moved 3 times and changed the name of the blog twice before I settled on the current incarnation.

    Every day is Bloggiesta for me so I never participate. Can you alter the comments so that we can add in URLs? At the moment, it won't allow that. It's one of those Blogger quirks.

    And and and: I'm going camping tomorrow. We have a long weekend here (the Queen's Birthday -yes the British Queen). We'll be camping in a very special place for Gary & I - Owen Springs.

    I might post some photos next week.

    Congratulations on the new blog... I'll put it in the Spinifex post for Sunday on Desert Book Chick.

    Happy Reading

  7. Love the name of this blog and it looks fantastic! Good luck this weekend getting everything set up!

  8. Congratulations on your move! When you wrote your post about branding earlier, I was hoping you would follow your gut and just start something new. When you put so much time into something, it's so much nicer to be working on a page that really feels like you!
