News + Updates

Well, hello there! Monday sure snuck up on me quickly this week, but I just wanted to start off the day with a few quick updates:


I realize advertising in the context of a blog tends to polarize people. Everyone has their own opinion, and usually it’s a strong one, no matter which direction it reaches. And while I appreciate those who oppose advertising in this forum, it’s a matter of fact that dwl takes quite a bit of time and money to run. So inserting a little bit of advertising seems to be the next, logical step for us as we continue to expand and improve this blog. This new venture will be a bit of an experiment to start as we figure out what works best. However, I can assure you that dwl will never be a blog plastered with flashing banner ads. We intend to keep this simple—for now, we will have just one ad per month in the sidebar—and it will be a priority to avoid any sort of disruption in your browsing experience.

If you are happen to be a business owner looking to snatch up that spot, you con contact us here, through Buy Sell Ads.


Although I’ve mentioned it from time to time on this blog, I’ve been a little hesitant to directly link to my wedding blog Head vs. Heart, as it’s been more of a personal venture. However, now that our wedding is past it will be the home blog for Seamless Paperie, our sister site where we design wedding and event-related paper goods. hvh will continue to be updated with bits of inspiration and design that pertain specifically to weddings and events, and anything else I find inspiring that may not exactly fit the framework of this blog. So if you’re interested, please follow me over there.


Back in June I posted our first Let’s Talk post, a feature that I mentioned would be a recurring column. There are a couple of these posts planned for the near future, however we’re looking for your ideas. If you have a topic you’d like us to discuss, or if you would like to guest contribute a post for this column be sure to get in touch with us.


A quick note to let you know I’ve joined Pinterest and I love it. It’s much more efficient than my previous system of keeping separate folders of inspiration on my desktop. If you’d like to follow my boards check it out right here.

Well, that’s all for now. We do still have a redesign in the works, which will bring with it more changes, and we’ll be sure to keep you posted as they come up. A million thanks to those artists and designers out there who continue to make inspiring work for us to feature, and for your continued support as readers.
