Just a Heads Up

I think, though I’m not sure, that some of you who follow this blog probably intended to follow my other blog, Candidly Coraline, rather than this one. Just a heads up and a link to help out just in case.

But I appreciate followers here as well—very much so! I’ve actually been writing more lately, so this will probably be getting updated more often.
