I know its been awhile, and I ‘ve been really busy. Not only finishing up on my thesis but preparing to become the newest Bee on WeddingBee! For my readers who have no idea what the hoot WeddingBee is, let me explain. WeddingBee is a wedding blog that I have followed for the past 2 years Mr. Knight and I have been engaged. It has been the source of many of my DIY projects, ideas, and has answered many tough questions for me during the planning process. It’s a community of brides. When Mr. Knight and I decided to start Gator Bride, last June (oh my goodness we are almost at our 1 year mark!) it was loosely based of WeddingBee.
WeddingBee has Brides blogging about their weddings from all across the Country and they blog under a moniker, aka Miss Star, Miss Avocado, Miss Penguin, etc, to protect their identity (plus, isn’t it more fun blogging under a faux name then your real name? I certainly think so!). Being selected to be a Bee on WeddingBee is a big honor, as so many Brides apply every day/week/year. They have a highly selective process.
I decided to submit an application to become their newest blogger about 2 months ago. My reasoning?
- To spread my Gator Lovin‘ to a larger audience and to raise the awareness of Gator Brides!!!
- To give back to the community of Brides who made me who I am today, as a Blogger and as a Bride.
- To become more involved in the online Wedding community, as I plan to open my own design company after our Wedding this May.
So what does this mean for Gator Bride?
Absolutely nothing! Nothing will change over here at the home of orange and blue wedding love. I will blog normally, as I always do (minus my terribly low blogging activity I’ve had the past few weeks!), and blog entires over here at Gator Bride that pertain to our wedding/weddings/orange and blue goodness will be repeated over on WeddingBee under my WeddingBee moniker, Miss Dolphin.
Entries I write that pertain to school, Gator events here in Gainesville, humor, my personal life, etc. will most likely not be repeated over on WeddingBee, so my lovely Gator Brid-ers will always get a little more from me here. :-)
As for now, I’m off to eat lunch with Mr. Knight and work on some much needed housework and designing my portfolio, cause this girl needs a day job like WOAH!
What’s in store for this week? Recap on all the Bridal Shower Mayhem, Cute/Modern/Easy/Cheap-o Table Numbers, Gator-ific Graduation Invitations (designed by me and made by Mr. Knight).
Stay tuned lov-ahs!
