I've been looking in to blog redesign for a few months now. I asked around, got some recommendations, some prices and even flirted with the idea of moving to Wordpress for all of three minutes (before freaking out because everyone keeps getting hacked) then ran back to my precious Blogger platform to stroke it like a kitten. "It's OK baby, mama won't leave you. I love you."
After all that research, tonight I sat down, slightly despondent that The Weekend Whine had to be postponed for yet another week (because I'm not well and still don't have a voice) and with a "fuck it, I did the first one myself and it wasn't entirely terrible" attitude, created this.
I've said so long to my little stork. Farewell to the little baby. Auf wiedersehen to the light blue background with squiggly swirls. And goodbye to the baby spew tag line since, you know, there is no baby spew these days.
|Bye bye, bloggy baby|
But I gave you BLACK writing on a WHITE background so there will be no more grumbling that my blog isn't white enough mmkay?!
I gave myself a Facebook page makeover and new button too! You want one? It's over in my side bar, just waiting for you to take it home and make it yours. Just remember, a Glow Button isn't just for Christmas, it's for life. Or until you update your sidebar. Whichever comes first.
There's still a few bugs about the place - there is a weird floating invalid app thingy happening on the front page and a bizarre colour change thing going on that I can't fix and will need to pay someone to do for me. But hey, it's not too bad, it's still a work in progress and it only took me a few hours.
Thanks to those who threw words at me the other week when I asked what the first thing that popped in to your head when you thought of me or this blog. Because of you, words like 'eyebrows' and 'hairtastic' are now plastered all over the place for all to see. Just as they should be.
Whatcha reckon? Has my blog grown up?
