New Features!




Hello, Readers!
You probably have noticed that my blog has a new look now.  Allie D. has kindly made me this wonderful design, and I am so excited! Please be sure to check out her design blog if you ever need a a custom blog design. :)

There will also be some other changes coming up. For one, I would like to have a regular feature of some sort every other week. But that's were you wonderful readers come in! I have come up with
a few ideas for features, but I need your vote on it! Below are my ideas:


Poetry Day--
Twice a month, I will post a poem with a short review. The subjects will vary from faith, nature, inspirational, or any other subject that I come across that's interesting. I may even share some poems that I have written....if you can bear it. :P And if you want this feature, please suggest a better name for it!! ;D


The Guessing Game--
Okay, I need help with that name as well! The idea for this one is a post that contains a short selection from a book. It could be a classic, a more modern book, or anywhere in between. Readers will guess in the comments which book they think the selection is from. There won't be a prize for this, it;s just a fun little game. I will announce the winner's names, however!


Some other features that would be lovely to have would be:

Monthly Highlights--
At the end of each month, I would post about the random things I've done, books I've read, music I listened to, etc.


Blog Recommendations--
Probably the thing I love the most about being a blogger is all the wonderful friends you can make! With blog recommendations, I would share blogs and Christian websites that I read and love, and that I hope you will too!


Christian Living Posts--
Posts about what I'm learning in my walk with Christ, and other encouraging, faith-filled tidbits!



Other New Features--
Other things that I can include on a regular basis  would be favorite recipes, book/series recommendations,and book reviews (yes, I know I have a tab for it already, but if you really want to read book reviews, then tell me and I'll be inspired to actually write one!)


If you have any other ideas that you might like me to do, please tell me! And please suggest some better names for them! :)

Please comment and tell me which of the above features you would like to see on A Purpose and a Promise! 

Have a great weekend!

  5. I love your ideas Emily! All of them. =) Let me think of ideas for the names...hmm...how about Rhyme and Verse for the poetry one? Or Presenting Poetry? Or Prose and Poetry? (if you do some that are not poems) I have no idea! =D

    For the mystery one...maybe Private Prose...or Hidden Volume...or Secret Text... or anything like that. =)

    I hope that helps somewhat! =) I love your ideas!
