It’s done!

Well, almost. I need to figure out how to get the logo picture to show up on the header and I need to go back to my older posts and update the color scheme of the links, but for all intents and purposes I’m finished with the updates. 🙂

So, what did I do? I wanted to make the blog more streamlined and clean looking so I took away the left side bar and some of the images/links that I had on the side bar I  now have on a separate page. I also went with a softer purple and blue color scheme which feels much more “me” and looks appealing (I think so, anyway).  My goal, ultimately, was to make the blog more simple, readable and less cluttered.

I also added a welcome page to give new readers a little “tour” of what’s available on the blog and of course, added an opt-in box so people can sign up for blog updates and get their free eBook.

What do you think?  (If you read this via a RSS reader or email, you will have to click over to the website to see the changes.)


  1. I like it. Love the color. I know how harrowing it is to mess with this blog stuff. You’ve got more staying power than yours truly.

      Thank you, Joann. It really can be harrowing. Yesterday I spent three hours and I still couldn’t get the darn picture to show up in the header. As much as I hate the idea, I may have to admit defeat and pay an expert to figure it out for me. :/

  2. Hello Carol, I also like the color and the layout…nice job.

  3. Good job, Carol. I pay a WordPress geek person to make major changes because I don’t do HTML and will surely screw everything up big time. Your courage is inspiring.

    Thanks, Barb. I know enough HTML to be dangerous so I have to be careful what I mess with or I might inflict irreparable damage! LOL! Luckily, I have the Atahualpa WordPress them which makes making most changes painless; except for the header, obviously!

  5. Great job! Love it!
