Notice anything different?

Today (or really Saturday) I'm debuting the new and improved Poodleism! I've really just changed the look and feel, your regularly-scheduled nuggets of genius and hilarity aren't going anywhere...don't worry. I felt like it was time for a little change. Sometimes we all need a change. This is kind of the new me, refreshed, excited and ready for  new starts. YAY! 

A sweet designer friend of mine helped me out, and I'm loving it. Thank you!!!!

Another reason for this upgrade....POODLEISM IS 2 YEARS OLD!!!

I cannot believe I've been doing this for 2 whole years. I'm proud of myself for sticking with it. It's turning out to be one of the longest-running things I've got going on in my life right now. On top of the collection of thoughts/feelings/observations that I've been able to collect (which isn't something I usually keep in a tidy little container), I've figured some stuff about myself and what I think about the world. Somewhere between Twilight mania, fantasy boyfriends club and Ke$ha, I got a little closer to being a grown up. Weird.

Also, I've learned lots of stuff about blogging...

1. If you make a rule that you have to stay positive/sunny/upbeat on your blog, it might just spill over to your life. That's not 100% true for all moments in life, but it definitely is a good thing.

2. I want this blog to be popular and get jillions of followers and become a millionaire from it...duh. But, I'm most dedicated to keeping my voice the main thing people come to it for. I try to balance linkups/blog hopping/pimping  to get followers with my own original content. This hinders my growth, I think, but I don't know if I care anymore.

3. There are like 4-5 repeat offenders (like herher, her and her) who visit this blog and comment often. These are relative internet strangers who check in on me. THIS. MELTS. MY. HEART.

4. Sometimes it's hard to think of ideas. So, I have to jot notes down whenever I see blogworthy items out in the world. I have like 62 sticky notes in the bottom of all my purses with miscellaneous ideas on them. Yes, I'm aware there probably could be some kind of electronic system for this via iPhone, but that's just no fun.

5.  Don't dis Harry Potter. Just don't.

So, for all the following, encouragement and giggles, I say...

I've got some fun and exciting new things up my sleeve, so stick around. Also, if you're new, tell me in the comments, I'll go follow you back! I do love when I get new followers, but I also love finding new blog friends.  Reach out to a sister! You can always find me at casey{at}poodleism{dot}com, too. 

Can't wait for another couple years with you guys!


  1. Gorgeous new design!! I think I need a face lift too!

  2. I love the new design!! I changed mine a little bit, but nothing too dramatic. Just wanted a new background.
