Things of Note:
My blogging plan kind of went out the window last week. I don’t even have an excuse for it. I just… didn’t write the posts I had planned to write. The beauty about a drag-and-drop editorial calendar, though, is that I can just move them to a new day. Mwahaha.
Things that happened over the weekend: saw The Giver; it was decent. Started Orphan Black; it’s good. And, in case you missed it yesterday, I’ve started a newsletter for my shops. So if you’re interested in new things for the shops (new designs, new items, sales/discounts, upcoming events), hop on that, because that list will be the first to know. I promise to not bombard you with emails.
Did you find any good reads this week? Any newsletter-sending tips for me?
