A New Look!


What do you think? I'm experimenting.... making good on a resolution to upgrade some things on my blog a bit - may section some "stuff" off like food or retail (now onto resolution #133 or something, right?). Project ideas are great, but it is most important to stay readable, so... input very much appreciated (emailers - go ahead and comment right on the blog :-). I have fixed some links - got rid of strange header (all in a blogger's journey :-).

Now what to do? Probably tea in Lilliana's PINK room (with the pumpkin on the door that Enzo brought me when I had her two years ago. One of his first preschool art projects - he was so proud. It was next to her bassinet in the hospital - next to my bed at night while I recovered, nursed her, etc. - now on her door - like it's supposed to be there no matter the season or holiday :-). Looking forward to "tea" - "sit, Mommy." - then we stir and pour and chat and serve cookies that are really little multi-colored pick-up jax - the ball for the game long lost ;-).

Got one Facebook msg that it was not as readable.... This from someone who has been reading. I tend to agree. It may be, however, because I'm trying the "ad thing", so there is more to view on the page. So far - VERY happy with the ads displayed. Hope all readers find them helpful too. Anyway .... thanks.

Two more comments (really, guys - just post them - I will NOT be offended :-).... One from a friend who says it is too busy now - my words no longer match the look - the stark, more calm, simple look I had before. And... one from a sometime follower who wants to know - "why the ads?". I heard from others that they were helpful to readers with like interests and can help gather more of a community of bloggers, which I thoroughly enjoy. I'm still warming to them, I guess. Keep comments coming, please :-).

The ads do seem to pop up in weird places that makes it difficult to read. At points you feel like you've reached the end of the posts because you run into an ad, but there are more under them. I don't know anything about blogger, so I'm pretty much of no use....sorry.

In agreement with weird ads.... Thank you, thank you for comments. I like helpful ads, but I dislike intrusive.... Will work with it...

Have heard from two more people - specifically ads this time - said they like the newer ads - helpful daily products (Pampers, Curel) as opposed to the "I might need a tea set or toy kitchen" from before (one still asked - why the ads, however :-). A little of both good, I think.
