Announcement: My New Blog!

You guys may have noticed my mentions of a secret project lately. I've been keeping pretty quiet about it, but haven't been able to help but say it a couple of times. It's very difficult for me to keep secrets, so as an alternative to telling, I tend to just bring it up from time to time. ("Hey guys, did you know I have a SECRET?")

Anyway, I'm not sure that anybody but me will be excited, if I'm honest. BUT, it is huge news for Kittens and Books, because I won't be blogging here as often anymore.

Right now I'm working to move things over to my NEW BLOG, which is called BookMatcher. I would absolutely love if you guys could check it out, although some of the content might be repeated for awhile. (Just until I get things transferred over, and there will also be new, original content in between that you can watch out for!)

I've decided to make this move for a number of reasons. Mainly, I like Wordpress. Since I switched over to Blogger, fairly early in my blogging days, I always kind of thought about switching back. The thing is, Blogger gives me more freedom when it comes to customization - but I think I like just about everything else about Wordpress more.

So I wanted to return to Wordpress. I have also had these ideas in my head for awhile - ideas that didn't quite fit my mental image of Kittens and Books. But I feel they're unique ideas, great blog features, and I wanted to use them. I kept thinking, How can I fit this into my current blog?

BookMatcher kind of covers what I want to do. For some reason, I just really like the concept of matching books to things. Whether I'm matching covers, or taking pictures of my cats with books that they look good next to (which I might have been doing far too often since getting this idea), it's just something I enjoy. It brought back that spark, that enjoyment for blogging.

I can't say for sure when the time will come to end Kittens and Books. As of now, I don't plan on ending it completely - I will still post reviews and discussions, some of which will also be posted to BookMatcher, and some of which probably won't. I really consider two different images in my head when I think of Kittens and Books compared to BookMatcher, so what works for one blog won't necessarily transfer to the other.

Anyway, I hope you guys stick with me and at least head over to check out my new blog. Think of it as a move for Kittens and Books, except I've changed the name and added tons of fun features!

(I will post here again when I decide to permanently end the blog, probably just with a quick farewell and reminder to follow BookMatcher, for people who might have missed this post, and of course to keep you all updated as well!)
