Blog Makeover

I've wanted to update my blog for a while.... tried a small template change a few weeks ago, it was alright... especially the layout, but color-wise, it was just so-so. Last night, I spent quite a few hours up by myself (even the dogs were asleep and leaving me alone) and I did a little research, found some info, bookmarked it and this morning I started looking at the websites.

The website I got the new template from is called The Cutest Blog on the Block and it offers free backgrounds, how-to and advice for revamping your blog. It's truly worth a look as it has so much wonderful information. I will certainly go back, but like a work of art, less is more, I have to remind myself not to go overboard! Anyway, how do you like the pink cheetah print?

The second website I used was Moms Who Blog and it's all about hacks and hints for the busy mom's blog... I will be on this site often! And that site led me to this site called My Live Signature. This website walks you through creating a signature to add to the end of your blog posts (check out mine below in nifty yellow), to your email or to your website. It's certainly worth the time to do because it adds that personal touch to your blog that is often missing in electronic journals.

I hope you get the chance to check these websites out as they are very informative and they teach you how to go about adding a touch of class or whimsy to your blogs!

Hey Mona, love the cheeta background and the ribbon boarder with the little jewelry hanging off it. Very cool looking. Thanks for the links, I'm always in need of hacks and tools, etc. It's almost like keeping up a website isn't it? Thankfully, on Artfire almost everything is on auto pilot so to speak.
