Friday Favorites: Book Rep Search + Mayday Parade Show!

Posted April 28, 2017 by shooting in Uncategorized / 27 Comments

I can’t believe it’s Friday again. I don’t know if I have 5 favorites from the week, but I do have some so read on!

One: Mayday Parade is a band that I really enjoy and they are currently on tour celebrating the 10 year anniversary of their debut album, A Lesson in Romantics. Myself, my sister, and another friend were able to attend the concert in Cincinnati, OH last night and it was great. They played the whole album and then some extra songs at the end.

One of my favorites is “Miserable at Best” so it was great to hear live. None of us had ever seen the band live, so this was a great show. They are about halfway through the tour, so if they are coming near you still – check it out!

Two: You might have seen this on my Twitter or Instagram already – or you just noticed when you visited the blog – but I have an official domain name now. That means I’m using WordPress instead of Blogger for this blog. It’ll take some time to get used to, but I’m loving it so far. I really like that my blog feels all official now. My Blogoversary this August is for 10 years so it was about time!

Three: I’m still looking for some book reps for Usborne! If you’re interested, please get in touch. My original post on Instagram says you have to post on Insta to “apply” but that’s not necessarily true. You can just contact me about your interest and share your links/where you plan to share about the books.

In basic terms – you get 3 free books (over a 3 month period) to help me spread the word about Usborne and my specific shop since I’m seeking more sales and for people to have online parties. If you want do an online party, that works too! Just let me know – I can be reached at lauren51990 AT aol DOT com or you can express interest in the comments and leave a way for me to get back to you!

Check out the books we offer here (activity books, books for babies- middle school, coloring books, and more):

And I think that’s it for the week. I hope you all have a great weekend. I’m ready for May – it’s my birthday month!

  1. Always lovely to see a band you enjoy perform live. Glad you had a great time.

    That book quote is brilliant 🙂

    Have a great weekend.

  2. Good on you taking the plunge and getting your own domain name. Now that I’m working again I’m contemplating the same thing, just to make things so much easier for blogging! You go gal!

  3. That’s so exciting that 1) you got your own domain (congrats!!) and 2) that you’ve been blogging almost 10 years! I don’t think I knew that?? that’s wonderful!

    Also I’ve never heard of that band before, but there is nothing quite like live music, eh? 🙂 Glad to hear you had a great time! XOXO and have a fun weekend!

  4. Live music is the best, I haven’t been to a concert in awhile. I hope to remedy that this summer! And having your own domain is the best. Happy weekend!!

  6. Congrats for your new domain I know how you feel also for being 10 years blogging I can imagine how amazing it can be. Have a nice weekend

  7. Welcome to WordPress! It does take some getting used to, but once you figure it out it’s amazing! The only reason I’d ever go back to blogger is if Alise and I couldn’t afford to pay for the WordPress and stuff anymore.

  8. Hooray for getting to go to a concert by an artist you really like!!! 😀 I got to do that last fall for the first time in forever and I was soso happy!! 😛

  9. Congrats on the blog move. Something that’s been on my list for years! I don’t think I know any Mayday Parade, but I can relate, last year I went to Jack’s Mannequin “Everything In Transit” – 10 year tour, and it was AMAZING. MY high school self was SO HAPPY! So glad you had a great time!! XO – Alexandra

    Yay on the blog address move! That is super exciting! Ten years of blogging is quite the accomplishment. I am hoping to be able to do a party for you, but things are so crazy right now. I am taking it slow with everything. That seems to work better for the whole recovery process 🙂
