My Makeover

As you can see, I recently had a makeover…to my blog. I decided it was time to get a real personal feel to my blog, nothing too girly but fun at the same time. I’d been saying for a while I was going to have Leanne design a theme for me and I finally bit the bullet.

I find it nerve wracking to have someone design your home for you (and this is one of my homes) because what if their idea is totally different than yours and you end up stuck with something that just doesn’t fit. Luckily Leanne is very intuitive and I didn’t change my mind too many times.

Now that I have a fancy new look and a little extra spunk to go along with it I’m ready to take over the world…or at least the blogosphere 👿 Aren’t I pretty? Don’t you want to pet me and tie me to a tree? :cheesy:


I woke up feeling fine this morning, no soreness, no pain :thumbsup:

Actually, I just realized my back/neck area is a bit sore, nothing excruciating.

    It is totally awesome but I was a bit confused on where to comment! :lmfao: Could just be me though!

    I think all new themes take a couple times to get used to or it could just be you :crazy:

    I love the new look. The colors and over all design looks great, seriously great! But ITA on the comments, I was a bit confused myself.

    I like the new look – it did take a minute to figure out how to comment, though.

    And a few things I’ve noticed:

    1. Even though I’m logged in, it still makes me type my information in every time I want to comment. You might want to stick a simple post footer that also lets them comment. Some people will never figure it out.

    2. The font in this box as I’m typing is tiny. I can barely read it.

    3. You don’t use tags at all?

    1. Comments link added :thumbsup:
    2. Better size? She’s trying to figure out how to login through popup comments but the login works on the regular page comments :dunno:
    3. I do, I just hadn’t reactivated the plugin yet…now I have…wasn’t sure if anyone actually used them :unsure:

    The login works on the main page now – cool.

    It’s just that typing in this text box is soooo tiny, although it looks fine once you submit it.

    I don’t use tags, but I was just surprised not to see them.

    I still have to type my information into the comment fields even through I’m logged in, and it doesn’t remember me from last night.


    Other than that – loving the new look!

    You have a great looking place here! Leanne does a great job, doesn’t she? I had her overhaul mine just a couple weeks ago! I am in heaven with the results!! Congrats on your new digs! :thumbsup:

    See that… and here I thought it was just another one of your oh… dozen or so templates popping up. I like it though. :clap:

    I’m allowed to change my mind, I rearranged the livingroom this past weekend.

    I should have a clause – you can’t change your theme for at least 30 days. Heh.

    (I know better!)

    I didn’t say you weren’t allowed… I was just saying that I think you have more blog themes than clothes in your closet. Not really a bad thing… or is it?

    But…I need to keep all the voices in my head happy…it’s not easy you know :twitchy:

  21. Robin

    April 4, 2007 at 3:46 pm

    Leanne – I think I’ll be quite happy for a long time…it’s like getting a bunch of clothes from Target and then finally splurging on a really nice pair of jeans you want to wear everyday. I feel all shiny and pretty now…not changing anytime soon. The voices will just have to get over it.

    I think it’s missing something.

    I just can’t put my finger on it.

    Oh, yeah…it’s needs ORANGE!

    Wow, really nice design! I haven’t seen a blog design this different in a long time… different in a good way I mean. And thank you for not have a shred of pink anywhere!!

    I haven’t been in a pink mood lately…no pink even in my wedding :heartbeat:

  29. Gemini

    I like the colors that you picked for the wedding.. until the voices tell you that it should be another color… and then I will like those colors… :ohgreatone:
    I don’t want to get on the voices bad side… :dazed:

    Just dont pick Orange… haha I would look like a pumpkin! :lmao:
