Hurray!! I'm so excited to be sharing this on here with you - my first free e-book on For the easily distracted... woop woop.
This year is my little blogs 5th anniversary. Scary huh :) It was actually 5 in February and I was quite happy to leave it as a non event, but my friends weren't so impressed about that when it happened to come up in conversation (I'm now wondering why I mentioned it haha).
So after some (not so) gentle (pestering) nudging, we tried to figure out something I could do to celebrate... and this is the result. A free ebook for my readers and blog friends.
I actually wrote most of this book last year as a possible presentation to do at Elizabeth from Rosalilium's Blognix event, but the dates didn't work out for me to be able to attend (and actually I have no idea if she would have even wanted me there haha but I suggested myself anyway, like you do...) and it has been sat in my documents file for a while just waiting to be used in one way or another.
After deciding to put it all together as a book, I knew that it needed something else to compliment it, something that wasn't my photos... something exciting and fun.
And immediately Che from Indieberries popped into my head. I had the delight to meet Che quickly when I was last in London and she was kind enough to say yes to my request and donate her time and talents to this book. All the illustrations in the book (which are awesome) are by her and I am so pleased to see our work next to each other, it definitely adds another dimension to the book and I love it.
Also, Che has upgraded from Blogger to her own website - you should definitely check that out. She is pure talent wrapped in a lovely, (crazy), blonde bundle and I adore her.
I could happily write more about this book - but everything you really need to know - the why's, the what's, the who's and, of course, the 'thing's' are all contained inside... so without further ado, here is the link to my first ever, free, downloadable e-book, here on my little blog. I hope you enjoy it!!!
If you love it - why not share about it with your friends! Tweet, Facebook, Instagram, whatever, I don't mind, but I would truly LOVE to see it reach as many people as possible as it's a topic I feel quite strongly about and I think others do too. Also, please let me know what you think about the book in the comments - I'm nervous and excited to see what other people make of it!
I feel like I should take this moment to thank you all so, so much for your amazing support in the last 5 years - I never imagined I would still be here when I first created my blog but I'm so happy that I am and that I've had the opportunity to meet so many amazing people and have so many great experiences because of this blog. It hasn't been all sunshine and rainbows (as this book definitely shows) but the hard work, sweat and worry have most definitely been outweighed by the positives and I hope that continues.
p.s. The book is 22 pages long, I got a bit carried away... it's good though, I promise!
Feel free to donate...
If you really, really love this book and you feel like it is worth paying a little something something for - I've (hopefully, sneakily, indulgently, over ambitiously - any of these will work) set up a little contribution button below. I'm not really expecting anyone to use it (because free is free right and I really want people to have this book without cost being a factor) but just in case you're feeling generous (or like you've stolen quality goods haha) there is a payment button below.
