Today, I have some announcements and posts from other blogs to share. One announcement in particular is pretty important so I think I'll start there.
This weekend, all of our email subscribers will be transferred over to MailChimp. Now that I have more experience using MailChimp with my other blog, I feel comfortable making the switch from Feedburner.
So, what does this mean for you? Our emails will now be sent out 3 times a week instead of daily. You don't need to sign up again if you're already subscribed via email. And if you aren't subscribed by email yet, you can sign up here and receive emails when new posts are published. Also, you should enjoy the "pretty" look of the new MailChimp updates.
The very first MailChimp email update should be sent out on Monday. If anyone notices any mistakes or strange happenings, please let me know! Thank you!
So now that the important mail update is out of the way, let's move on to some other news!

- Remember when I asked you to vote for Shiner in the Snouts In The City "Snout Style" photo contest? Well, Shiner did not win first place in the contest but she did win 2nd. There was still a prize for 2nd place which was the awesome t-shirt pictured below. Thank you for your votes!
