365 days, 252 “You know you’re a yerd when…” posts and 1 Yearbook Discoveries cover later, the one year anniversary of this blog has arrived!
And although I haven’t been solely in charge for a few months, I wanted to say thank you to each and every person who has ventured onto this page, shared it with their staff, rep, friend, or just scrolled through since October 2 last year.
Yearbook has had a huge impact on my life and I cannot imagine my life without the elective I chose to sign up for my sophomore year in high school. I hope you learn to love the yearbook world as much as I have, or at least you learn a little more about yourself in the publication process.
I’ll be in touch again shortly!
Much yerd love,
P.S. Read the Yearbook Discoveries article about me here. Especially because Ann Akers is a goddess and makes me sound far more awesome than I actually am.

9 captions for one photo. Sound crazy? Check out this short video to find inspirational tips and tricks for increasing coverage while keeping your visuals interesting.
I figured I wasn’t exactly able to use my traditional “Yerds Helping Yerds” post for this information, but I needed to let you know the editor list is updated. Utterly and completely. I apologize wholeheartedly it took weeks upon weeks, but if you sent me something, it can be found here.
Secondly, if you’re interested in sharing something you’ve learned about yearbook with a famous adviser who might include it in an address presented to even more famous, yerdy people, click here to ask for it. Because if you don’t ask, you don’t receive.
This is from one of Mr. Mike Simons’ students. Oh, West High… you guys are too cool.
It’s been quite some time since this photo was posted! But yes, I do need your help!
I received a call for help from a rather influential yearbook adviser looking for Yerds (experienced or not) to share some things they have learned from their time on the yearbook staff. If you would be at all interested in sharing what you know with the yearbook community, click here to send me a message so I can pass along an email address and a little more information to you. I won’t even know if you actually end up sending anything, so you might as well just send me an ask just so you know what’s up in the yearbook world.
You know how Tumblr changed its layout? Well, I can’t figure out how to “customize” a secondary blog and update the pages and whatnot. And I’ve been trying to figure this out so the editor list can be updated along with a few other things. Any thoughts?
