After an amazing year of blogging and an exciting first blogoversary, I’ve been thinking a lot about ways I can improve and expand this blog.
While I absolutely love my home here at Blogger, I think it may be time for me to step it up and move to my own domain.
I already own the domain https://jessicalawlor.com. It currently serves as my personal portfolio to house my resume, writing samples, recommendations and freelance services. I was heavily using this site when I was searching for a job this past spring. Now that I’m happily employed, I’d love to move this blog over to my main website to keep all of my content in one place.
I absolutely love my website design on my personal website. I love the Jessica Lawlor header; it’s totally me. However, I also love my blogs header and title: Cover to Cover. However, if I move all of this content over to jessicalawlor.com, the title Cover to Cover has to go because I want to keep the Jessica Lawlor header. I am multi-passionate. I want to combine all of my interests under this one blog: I want to brand myself as a book blogger, an aspiring author, a freelance writer and a communicator who can offer PR services. Lucky for me, all of my passions do go hand in hand; I’m just struggling with a way to communicate this all on one website so as not to turn away other book bloggers or communicators.
Here’s Where You Come In
I’d like to come up with a new tagline to replace the current “PR-Writing-Social Media” to one that encompasses all of my interests. I want the tagline to let readers know that if they are looking for book reviews, author interviews, thoughts about the writing process and publishing, as well as social media and PR advice and commentary, they have come to the right place. I realize this is a daunting task to come up with a tagline that covers so much ground, but that’s why I’m asking you! I’ve been rolling this over in my head for the past few months and my goal is to have the new site up and running by September 1.
Please leave your ideas for my new tagline or any other idea you have about how to make my blog transition work. You can leave one idea or you can leave 10! Before September 1 (though I may extend this giveaway, if needed!), I will choose a tagline and the winner of the tagline I choose will win a $20 Amazon gift card.

Please feel free to tweet and blog about this contest! I’d love all the input I can get to make this blog even better. Once I make the big switch, I’ll be hosting another giveaway to celebrate the re-launch of my blog! Go for it, everyone. I’m so excited to hear what you think!
