Happy birthday, little blog! It has been exactly one year since the first post. Between then and now, I've learned so much about writing, and also a little about blog design, which is why the Art of Storytelling has a brand new look! Shout-out to Hannah Williams for artistically critiquing the header. It looks much better after her advice.
For those of you who are from the year 2035, when I'm a famous author, and are stalking my childhood blog, don't fear. It always bothers me when a blogger announces that they've changed their look, but you can't remember what their old look was. Here, for reference, is an old picture:
I think it looks much better now.
My first year of blogging has been made wonderful by so many different people. I would like to thank Hannah Williams, Ghost Ryter, and Clara Diane Thompson for helping out so much. And I would like to thank all of you, dear readers! You are what make writing worthwhile.
And on that topic...
The 2015 Blogger Awards are just around the corner! I hope to expand the event this year, so we're looking for more judges. If anyone with a functional blog who can commit to the series wants to participate, please e-mail me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
I think I'll eat cake now to celebrate.
