Oooohhhh Pretty...Come and See....

...my new look.  Not me, me (no purple hair...yet!), but my blog.  My fabulous, talented, sweet friend Sarah put this together for me.  I love it - it includes many of my favorite things.  Travel, writing and tea!  I'm sipping some now - English Breakfast decaf ;>

Sooooo...... What do you think?

I'm hoping the new look will help motivate me to blog more - I do have ideas and posts ready to be assembled (pictures uploaded, links found, etc...).  Time will tell :)

Maybe it'll be a person you meet or a event that happens . Being the amazing author you are ,you'll find something. Live long and prosper.

  11. Oh I'm totally going to be the Scrooge here - I really like it (I do!), but it also really bothers me when text overflows outside of a design and there's no way to get back to the main blog page from a post.

    I definitely have the urge to start writing all over the pages however and take notes in the margins. :D

    2. Hi Rywn! :)
      I've noticed it, and had the issue of not having a way to get back to the main page on my list for a while now. It worked fine on the main page (not so helpful there!) but not on the individual post pages. The coding for blogger is like a hybrid html. Some things are the same and some are slightly different. :) With some help from my amazing and awesome husband, who knows coding better than I do, there are now a couple of links back to the Main Page. You can click the "Home" text link, or on the main banner at the top.
      I'm not sure what you mean by text overflowing outside the margins of the design. I'm only noticing it when I shrink the browser down to less than 800px wide - which is a lot smaller than the monitor sizes typically used now. Perhaps your screen is smaller, or you keep your browser window small? It may also depend on your browser as they all react to the code slightly different.
      I hope that helps! :) Thanks for the feedback!

  13. Have you ever tried a wordpress blog? You'd still have the ease of blogspot but you'd have more control over the template. Perhaps you could get a web designer to help you out.
