Blog Face Lift

Hello.
Please forgive me. I couldn't stand my blog layout one more minute. If you really want to know what was bugging me, it was the lower case font on my dates and sidebar titles. I just can't deal with it. I picked this new, more subtle blog layout until something "zazzy" comes along. I am sorry if this causes anyone to "loose their way." I think, for the most part, "things" are in the same place. I kept messing with the colors trying to get a satisfying result and finally "ta-da" it came to me. And then I knew what had to change, the whole darn thing!

In my Circle of Books this weekend, I will be reading:
Life after Genius,
Little Women, (Wikipedia Link),
The Firemaster's Mistress.

Doesn't that sound like a good mixture for the mind? I have the weekend off and look forward to reading and blog hopping.

Happy Weekend Readers!

I know exactly how you are feeling, Toni. I went through about 5 blog 'face lifts' in matter of a few days.

This looks nice Toni...simple and easy to read! I know what you mean...I want three columnns but like my blog template colors etc. I may try one of those free templates and trial it out on another temporary blog. I'm afraid that I will lose what I have!

Hi Jenn and Bonnie.. I guess when I was first trying it out, I had NO material on it. So It seemed okay. But then everything seemed to clash and day after day I couldn't get over the lower case font. I don't think this is my forever blog, but I feel a bit better.. however a bit plain. (for those that know me, plain is not me). I am html challenged. :)

Bonnie.. I like your colors and the home-y-ness, of your blog. Jenn yours is great also it is very signature.... and stylish.

I do think three columns is a bit easier for readers.. less scrolling down... easy to find all the goodies.

Take Care.

For your reading, can I make a suggestion? If you enjoy fantasy, try "Outcasts Of Skagaray". There are sample chapters on www.threeswans.com.au for a free preview,and you should find reviews online if you type the title into a search. If you read and enjoy it I will be delighted. My blog is http://threeswans.blogspot.com if you feel like visiting. Happy reading, whatever happens.

It looks good Toni. I don't remember noticing the small font before. Do you remember what the name of this one is.

Toni said...

Hi Dar.. it is called Denim. Still wondering if I have some other choices. :) Since typically I am not a "blue" girl. ;)

Dar said...

Hey Toni, check out this website. It's what I used when I made mine into 3 column. It only has a few of the blogger designs but denim is one of them:

Hey just stopping to to find out how you're doing with the life after genius tour.I'm going to start writing my review today but I'm not sure what to write yet.

Hi Sharonanne!
I finished the book last night and have a rough draft of my blog tour post to post tomorrow. I used some of the links provided on the page by Miram at the book blogs site. Good luck with the tour. I will check in on you tomorrow. :)
