Blog update

I've made a couple of small changes to the look of my blog.

I updated my blog header last night. I just had a generic header before and wanted to personalize it a bit. And, of course, I can't personalize anything without pictures - pictures of my kids no doubt!

I also added a picture of me. I had to go searching through the photo archives to find one that actually had me looking at the camera and smiling! Clearly I am behind the camera WAY more than in front of it. I think it might be time to get spruced up and have the kids take my picture. And I'm sure I get some of them with me in there too!

I was very excited to figure out how to take the border off of the pictures in the posts! I didn't like it and searched for a few hours last night for someone to tell me how. I couldn't find anyone else's posts on that so I just spent some time looking through the HTML code and playing around until I figured it out. I should have just started with that idea and would have spent lots less time on this little thing.

Finally, I added my signature to my posts. I felt like I always wanted to sign my posts like I am writing a letter or something and hopefully this will help. Or I may think it looks dorky and take it off. Who knows! Now, I wish I could figure out how to change the background of the blog without having to put all my other edits back in (like I would if I just changed the template in blogger).

I realize quite a few folks read my posts in a news reader and the changes I've made don't really affect you unless you stop by to comment. But I like the new look and, really, that's all that matters, right?!

I am one who reads your blog in a reader, but when I read the first sentence, I clicked over to see the changes. I like the new stuff.

It's my first visit, but it looks good.

I think it looks great! You always have a knack for things like that though...

Btw, I didn't comment a few posts back, but kudos to you for posting on the books you can't finish. We all have books like that. But to post about it ON a book blog takes guts :)

Love it - you and the kiddos look great! And seeing your signature does make it more personal. Makes me think of you, ya know?

It's always nice to personalize your space! I'm *constantly* tinkering with mine, even though I know that so many people are just seeing it in a reader. They've got to click through to comment, right? So eventually someone will see it :-)

I like what you've done (but I bet you'll find more to change around before too long)!

Thanks everyone! I am glad you enjoy it. And, yes, I'm sure I'll find more to play with. :-)
