New Blog Layout & Contest!

After blogging for a little over a year now, I’ve finally had my blog layout redone!

I’ll be honest, when it comes to the technical aspects of blogging, I’m completely lost. I could have never accomplished such an amazing layout without the expertise of Janice from TwoScoopz, who was amazingly patient with all my questions and confusion! AND she made a pretty amazing layout, in my opinion! You can check out her website HERE. Information about her blog services can be found under “design.”

To celebrate the changes at The Hiding Spot, I’m holding a contest for all my wonderful followers! I’m nearly at 550, which I never dreamed would happen! Thank you all so much for reading! 😀 And since this is open to all my followers, it must of course be INTERNATIONAL!
