New Year New Look

I've been thinking for a while that I'd like a new look for this blog, but I just kept putting it off because changing everything sounded like a lot of work. Back when we were having our tile put in, I helped my friend Nancy set up a website for their business. Instead of building a traditional website, I had her set up a blog, because it will be a lot easier for her to update. When we picked the template she used for her blog - Eltrich Enterprises - I found one I really liked on the same site - this Wooden Fence template. So I downloaded it. I also noticed after I downloaded it that Misty liked it, too. I think we have pretty good taste. Or at least we must have similar taste, because she didn't end up using this template, but Misty did recently change the template on her blog - and she chose one that I'm using on my recipe blog!

It's been a while since I downloaded the template, but I finally decided to go for it. I went searching for a way to save my widgets first, because I really did not want to have to rebuild my blog lists and things like that. I found this really helpful article on keeping your widgets when changing your template last night and tried it out on my test blog. It worked! So, today when Jeffrey and I decided to just be lazy and hang around at home, I decided today would be the perfect time to update my layout.

I'm liking it! There are some similarities to my old layout, but overall it's a fresh look. It does have me thinking of Spring, and since we're in the middle of a cold winter, I'm wondering at the logic of that - but maybe it's just something to look forward to. Anyway, let me know what you think. Like it? Are there any display issues I may not have noticed? Let me know, OK?

  1. Anna!!! I LOVE it! Actually, I really, really want to use this template for my other blog, but I couldn't figure out how to replace the pictures on the clothespins with my own photos. That's the ONLY reason I haven't used it.
