To the keen eyed observer who follows my blog, you may have noticed a design change.
About 2 weeks ago, I was doing my daily check on my blog and I noticed that the background features were gone. Poof! Just like that! They were there the night before and then gone the next day. After a bit of research, turns out the website I originally got it from decided to go from a free format to a paid one. To keep the exact formatting I had, there would be a one-time fee of $40.
I was at a bit of a loss with what to do. I LOVED the original design. It was feminine and I spent quite a bit of time deciding on it. This blog was important to me and a space where I could express myself.
After come careful though, I realized that while $40 is not a lot of money, it was to me! It's just not in the budget. At first glance, I was unimpressed with the templates that are available through blogger. Then I discovered that there are more in-depth settings and formatting available.
I worked on it for a good chunk of the day yesterday and I think I have come up with a look I am pleased with.
It still has the colours and feminine feel the other one had. While I may need to tweak it a little bit still, I am content.
I got thinking....perhaps it is very fitting that this happened. I'm at a turning point in my journey and this change could be just what was needed to shake things up a bit. I have also been contemplating a Facebook page for my blog. I'm not sure about that yet though. It would take a whole new level of commitment and I would hate to take that one and let people down. Would be interested in hosting it with me?
And now...a little something to think about!
