How has your 2011 been?

So far 2011 has proven to be a very busy, productive time.

I turned 28 earlier this month, and my husband surprised me with a Nook Color! He loved it so much that he had to go out and get himself one, too.

One of the things I love best about the Nook Color is magazine subscriptions. I’ve cancelled my print subscriptions to Glamour and Marie Claire and switched over to getting them on the Nook. I also subscribed to Spin Magazine, since it’s only 50 cents a month! My other favorite magazines — Allure and Real Simple — aren’t on Nook Color yet, but I’m sure they will be soon.

I’ve been busy volunteering with some professional organizations here in Birmingham too, and spending some time with some great new sociallyminded friends. I’m also thinking about a complete blog/personal brand makeover, complete with the hop over to WordPress. Any advice? I’m hesitant to pay for monthly hosting and all the bells and whistles, but I know I won’t be happy unless I get it a certain way design-wise.

I’m also in the midst of merging my two Twitter accounts — I’m retiring my closed “personal” account and going forward will use my open “professional” account.

So please, don’t mind the dust as I get things situated around here over the next month or two.
