Don’t you hate it when you can’t remember the name of something? I don’t know what it is and I’m too young for memory loss, my friend. It happens way to often for me to say without being embarrassed, so lets just say a lot. Anyway, that’s what actually happened when I came across this DIY. I don’t know if you’ve heard of the blog Campfire Chic, but that was the site that I couldn’t for the life of me remember what the name was. I remembered the author’s face, what the site looked like, what the article I was looking for was about, but I couldn’t for the life of me remember the name! What’s even worse, I was convinced that I had a) followed the blog in my blog reader (which has been acting up lately) and b) bookmarked that specific article. I even remembered that it was featured on Gypsy in Jasper’s site, in a girl’s of the mountain type of post featuring bloggers that live on mountains… wasn’t there. You can imagine my frustration.
Anyway, I found it once I stopped looking for it (literally) and found this fun DIY instead on Five Sixteenths’ blog. Subsequently I found Campfire Chic’s blog on that blog while going through old Blogtober posts (a wealth of information and helpful advice on blogging). It’s a fun, easy, and very quick way to make a useful blogging tool, and you can customize it any way you want. You’ll see from mine that I just used blank printer paper because it’s what I had and then drew a mock-up of my blog header. It looks great to me and I’ve already started filling it up with post ideas.
I hope you guys enjoyed taking a peak into my new blogging notebook! Be sure to give it a try, it was incredibly easy. It took me maybe 2 minutes. For step by step instructions, it is Design Love Fest's orginal DIY, so she does a way better pictorial of the step by step process than I ever could (the pictures move!).
