    How did you make this blog? I wanted to make one for my 365 day project!

      My blog is a self-hosted WordPress site but has the WordPress.com framework. I have a lot of bells and whistles that don’t come with a free wordpress.com site though Glad you are going to start a 365 :)

        Is it hard to make one and can I make it private??

          No, not if you use one of their pre made templates. And yes, you can make it private.

    Hey there!
    I think I dropped you a line a few weeks ago about a photography question. I had one more for you if you don’t mind. :) I’m looking into buying a Maco Lens for my Nikon D5000. I was to eventually upgrade my camera but not at this time. Which Macro Lens would you recommend for me to use for a newborn session to get up close of eyelashes, nose, ears, fingers, and toes?? I know they are very expensive but maybe if you could through me a couple ideas of which ones may work? I’ve looked at the 105mm 2.8 which is pretty pricey for me right now. There are very good reviews.
    Thank you for your time. Hope to hear from you! Your blog is awesome! :)
