New Month, New Material: April 2011

*singing* "GOOD MORNING
*hush, Nicky Blonsky! I've got to give the people an update!*
As you can tell by Nicky's over-zealousness, the month of April will be a VERY jubilous one for the blog! As most of you should know- seeing as I harped on and on about it- April 14th will mark my blog's 1 year anniversary! Who would have thunk? I am very excited to celebrate this special event with you all! I am a very sentimental type of girl, so expect a blast from the past of memorable times this crazy year has provided the blog with.
Not Another Romance Blog really is like my baby- and should I ever be blessed in to have a (real) child of my own, I think I would celebrate its 1st birthday in a similar fashion to the blog's birthday. A small, intimate little event, all about what this past year has meant, thanking the people who supported steadfastly- Sorry, no big blow outs this year (that's for 2012!). Obviously I'll do a nice giveaway, post some of my maudlin memories...Nothing too major. I really just want to take the time out this month and on the 14th in particular to thank all of you who have supported the blog, commented, liked on facebook, followed (at your own risk) on twitter...You guys make me smile everyday!
Also, as most of you may know, I am finishing up my first semester of college- which means finals are right around the corner. You'll have to forgive and bare with me a bit longer as I take care of my studies and clear my summer schedule so we rock out with our...BOOK THONGS OUT once the sunshine hits. I PROMISE you're in for some fun events!
I am also very excited to announce that the fabulous Barbara from Happily Forever After held a blog design giveaway on her blog last month and the gods smiled down on me because I was the winner! A brand spankin' new blog design will be 'launched' on the 14th (I've seen the finish product and it's heavenly!) and the next chapter in N.A.R.B's adventures in blogland will start off on the right foot!
But I'll try not to get TOO carried away this month with blogoversary stuff that I slack (more than usual) on the main focus of this blog. I've got some stellar reviews, interviews, guest posts, and giveaways planned to keep you guys entertained the other 29 days of this month ;)
And since the blog is getting a makeover, I'll be sprucing up the pages and side bars a bit to make everything more easily accessible and attractive-so please excuse any experimenting/construction you may stumble upon. 
I also have a whole bunch of forms for you guys to fill out! lol. Not a 1040, I promise!- but I do want to get you guys even more involved with what content gets posted, so I'll be creating a 'Suggestion Box' form along with some others so I can get your feedback and make Year 2 on N.A.R.B even better than this first one has been!

The month may change, the BLOGOVERSARY countdown clock may change, but the mission stays the same: To make your followership of Not Another Romance Blog worthwhile!

Here's some of what to expect this month:
*Starts with an R and rhymes with Zeviews...okay, REVIEWS!
*Amazing authors like Anna Campbell and Kristan Higgins (among more) will stop by for book chat and giveaways
*If you haven't caught the hints by now: The Blogoversary celebrations 
*The Blog's extreme makeover 
*More chances to leave your feedback and get involved in what gets posted/discussed!

And so much more!
Until Next Post<3...
