I’m writing to announce, if you haven’t noticed already, that I have finally changed my domain name for my book blog! Ink Keys & Other Things is now Books and Pixels, which I think is name that much better suits what I blog about here on this website: books, writing, and my studies of all things digital (i.e. stuff made of pixels).
This is something I’ve been wanting to do for a long time, but my old domain name expiring this month really put the pressure on to finally address this issue today. Also, I’ve wanted to make sure to end 2016 with a bang and for me that meant revamping my blog, so I’m also on the lookout for a new blog theme.
Nothing else will really be changing here, except that hopefully I will become a bit more active with posting and interacting online. The semester is almost over and I will have all of December to plan and create and hopefully I will be able to share new things that you find exciting and useful. So that this happens, I’ll probably be creating a poll this weekend I can insert here on the blog so that you can vote for what you most want to see more of on this blog.
In celebration of my blog rejuvenation, I want to host my first blog giveaway at the end of the month as a way to say thanks! I also hope it will get word of my blog out there and help new followers who might like my the content of my blog find it.
I never thought I would do a giveaway, because they always seem so insincere and purely motivated by the desire to hype a so-so book or the so-so blog that hosts it. So I want to really make this giveaway personal to me, the books I like, and the kinds of people who I think will really like my blog. Therefore, I think I’m going to personally select the books that will be in the giveaway and select entry methods that make sure the winner is someone who will hopefully truly appreciate the grand prize.
Expect more on this giveaway at the end of the month probably around Thanksgiving Break. There is one specific book I already know I’d like to be in the giveaway that debuts at the end of the month (hint, hint) and I really hope the winner of the giveaway is as big a fan of this book’s series as I am!
I hope you’re as excited as I am about the future of this blog. I will have another post out tomorrow about how I’ve been doing on the first week of NaNoWriMo. If you’re participating, I hope you’re managing to stay afloat and take of yourself. If you like my blog or the direction it’s been going, please feel free to leave a comment down below or share my blog. (If you do share my blog on your own, let me know in the comments because I don’t get notifications when my blog URL is posted somewhere and I’d really like to go show your blog some love as well! <3)
