Fresh New Look


If you usually read my blog with a reader* take a minute and click over to the real thing tonight so you can marvel at the talents of Erin at Designer Blogs. For the second year in a row, Erin gave my blog a makerover. About once a year I feel the need to shake things up around here so when I discovered Erin last year I found a person who can take my random ideas and turn it into something amazing.

I decided to really treat myself this year with a few little extras - a snazzy flavicon (next to the web address) and at long last a button - so if you want a splash of orange goodness on your blog, feel free to grab the code.

Many of you have the skills to create your "look" yourself, but for folks like me who need a little help, I can highly recommend Designer Blogs. They do amazing work, are reasonably priced and an all-around joy to work with. If only my home remodeling projects were going so smoothly!

*Note: if you are wondering just what a reader is, drop me a line and I'll give you the details. Google Reader makes my life so much better. I read a TON of blogs and it is so easy to have them all in one place.

Here's a little Brooke Waggoner - "Fresh Pair of Eyes" in honor of my the fresh new blog before my eyes.

I love the new look!! Orange is one of my favorite colors. I need to figure out Google Reader. It would probably save me hours, but then again I would miss beautiful blogs.

Nikki said...

I love the new colors and background pattern! I need me one of those favicons.

I love your new blog and realised that I am not actually on your follower list - I was sure I was but am now. Can you please tell me what a reader is? I have no idea and people keep talking about them so.

Really cute my dear! I've always wanted to know a little more about HTML and graphic designing and I love what she's done to your little space!

Lookin' good, very uptown!

I love your new look. So fresh and modern. After the first of the year I may need to contact Erin, I keep fiddling with my blog, and am never happy with it. Perhaps it's time to let someone who actually knows what to do, do it. :)
