Big Announcement: Complete Blog Makeover!

You may have noticed posts have slowed down a bit here at Leah Marie V…. and that is because we’re in the process of some BIG changes. We’ve done a complete makeover of our site, and I can’t wait to share it with you!

Thanks to Aimee at byAimee.com Websites & Graphic Design, things are about to get classy around here. If you haven’t heard of Aimee, well, you are missing out! She (and her team) have got loads of crazy talent! Here is a sneak peak of the changes to come (this weekend!).

Drop me a line and let me know what you think – I bet you’ll love it as much as I do and I would love to hear your feedback! And stop by and check out Aimee’s site (and awesome blog too!).

Sneak peek for the next week: stay tuned for the bathroom reveal, floor sanding tutorial and more!!


Blogging Tips: The Basics

I could  spend HOURS reading other people’s blogs to get advice, tips, and hunt around for great ideas. Typically I forget why I got on the computer to begin with (was I checking email or sitting down to write for a client.. hummm) and end with a million tabs open, pended for “future” reading.

Through all of this searching I have certainly found ridiculous advice, amazing ideas, and generally fantastic sources of useful blogging information. I thought I would share those sources with you today and see what YOU use as your blogging-bible.

How-To Do… Just About Anything to your blog. Little Miss Momma dishes the real scoop on what to do and how to blog from her personal experience here (among other excellent posts!)

How to Grow your blog. Careful here, once you enter Craftaholics Anonymous you might get sucked in to one of her amazing, thrifty ideas!

Craftaholics Anonymous

The hard work, never-ending hours of blogging fun. You have to get creative, get over those writing blocks, and be prepared for the long haul. We all know the folks at Young House Love well, but we remember here that they were once like us (kind of…).


Taking good photos  to show off that awesome stuff you made! Both Centsational Girl and The Lettered Cottage have great tips and photos you could get lost in.


More to come, this enough to keep you busy for awhile! Where have you found the best advice for blogging and writing?? Happy Thursday to everyone!
