Come See What I Did!

Monday, August 1, 2011

If you are reading this first sentence from a reader, stop cheating! You have to be on the actual blog for the full surprise and YES, it will be different.

Before I went to serious work on my temporary project, I left something hanging. Rather than wait for the entire re-vamp I am unavailing my new look.

New month, new look; why not? So, what do you think? I was sort of sick of pastels and wanted something a bit more true to me. I have more changes to complete however; I will handle that in stages. Hope I did not freak you out. Now…

Four weeks ago I sort of fell off the blog edge to work for money, Thursday that will end. My ability to once again earn money will be over, for now; back to blogging.

For all of you who have stuck with me, I thank you from the bottom of my heart. I have missed you; I have missed reading about all your adventures, reviews, advise, stories, poems and in general, you.

I’ll be making the rounds to drop little smiley faces and comments your way. For now though I just wanted to let you know about the new look. You are in the right place, but if not, click the follow button anyway.
Open-mouthed smile

I think it looks great. And, as an added bonus, it used to take a minute or two for your page to load; now it comes up in a flash!(no pun intended ;) I love the scrolling awards banner on the right - very cool.
On a selfish note - glad to have you back soon.

Wonderful new look. I like it better than the pastels, too. I'm sorry work is ending, but glad to know you'll be around more.

FYI, your page loads much faster now!

Hope you're staying cool. Our ac hasn't shut off in over a week. The heat has been unbearable.

I love this new look. Very edgy and sophisticated. The colors and the fonts make it easy to read as well as the layout. Brilliant! And it is great to have you back blogging. Whoo Hoo!!!

Very nice! I give it a thumbs up-- the blue is striking, the font easy to read against the white background. That picture of Lucy cracks me up-- she always has had such a cartoonish look, and that captures it perfectly.

I LOVE your look and the headers is awesome! For some reason I think this 'bursting blue' fits you better... probably because you have such a bursting awesome personality!!

So glad your back! Now you can keep me 'on track'. My attention span is getting worst with age... so I tend to wonder off for a few days without even realizing it at times. lol

Here's your Big Hug for being You, Jules!! XOXO
