Moving On to New and Better?

Earlier this week my email started to get filled with messages from Bloglovin' indicating that I had new followers.  "What the hell," I thought, "Did someone put out the word about my blog on Bloglovin'?"  Then I read other blogs and realized what was going on.  You all know what I'm talking about....the death of Google Reader.  Now I have never used GR for my own blog perusal.  I personally follow all my favorite blogs by email (so I don't miss a single post) and the ones that don't allow for that option, I read through my blog roll, so I am not panicking.  (Why is there a K tacked on to panic when you add ING?  Thank goodness for spell check!  I digress.  What was I talkin' about?  Oh yeah, obituaries.)  

Thanks to all who already changed to Bloglovin'.  I love you all!  It means so much to know that I am not just talking to myself here in my little corner of the blogosphere.  If you haven't already switched, I added a button over there on the right.  I have always had this option, but it wasn't very obvious because there was no button.

On to new and better!  The Let It Snow challenge is over so I have been looking for my "next thing".  You may notice that I am a challengaholic (spell check really hates that word tee hee).  "Why?", you may ask.  Because I am lazy.  Does that make any sense at all?  Joining challenges pushes me to keep painting and posting.  Maybe some day soon I will not need this push and will do it "all on my own", but for now I like the challenges.

That being said, let's see what you can expect over the next few months here at Light of the Moon.  The first is my own little challenge to myself called "Fashion Fridays".  My Pinterest boards are filled with fashion inspiration for manis'.  It is time to get them off the boards and onto my nails.  This feature will start this Friday and will go until I run out of inspiration or steam.  Most likely the latter.

I am also going to try to do Monkey See, Monkey Do Mondays.  This is feature run by some of Crumpets Nail Tarts.  I am really excited about this, because there is sooo much nail inspiration out there, girls (and guys) that I really want to copy and give kudos to.  I did this a lot at the beginning of this adventure, but have noticed that I haven't done it as much recently.  That is a good thing, it means that I am doing my own ideas.....but I miss linking all the wonderful, talented bloggers out there, so this is my way of getting back into that habit.

Finally, I am doing ANOTHER Crumpet's Nail Tarts challenge, one that I think will push my humble boundaries, the Tri Polish Challenge.  I was going to lay out everything here, but this is getting a little long, so I will summarize.  Each month Crumpets Nail Tarts will set 3 colors for the challenge.  I then pick 1 polish for for each color and must use those exact three polishes throughout the challenge.  You have to create 4 looks with the exact same polishes, which are posted the 3rd and 4th Tuesday and Thursday of the month.  Confused?  Check out Debbie's post about the challenge HERE.

Do you think that is enough (tee hee)?  Thanks to all who got to the end of this post, those of you who follow my blog and especially those who comment.  I love your comments!  See you again soon!
