More blog changes!

Sunday, June 17, 2012

Hello, blogland!
 Well, I've spent the entire day working on making some changes here. It still isn't finished so please excuse the mess around here. It's midnight and since tomorrow is Father's Day, I will probably be stuck with the disarray till Monday. At any rate, I'm excited about all of the things I'm learning about html, css and other scary things. I am a complete novice at this kind of stuff so even adding a new gadget is a big deal for me!

Please leave your feedback
 My main reason for doing some design changes is to make this blog easier to read and to navigate so if anyone has any constructive criticism, suggestions or ideas, please do leave a comment or drop me an email. I had some great feedback from a few gals on facebook today. Thank you to everyone for your advice!

 Also, I just changed my blog's width. Apparently, I have a huge screen but only 4.5% of my readers have a screen big enough to read this without having to scroll over. Scrolling over is irritating so if it's still a problem for you, please let me know and I'll try to tinker with it.

It looks like Minima Stretch!
 I'm very excited that I figured out how to stretch my blog (like the old minima stretch template) without stretching the actual size more than 1024 pixels. For the brave and daring, here's the CSS code. Just go in to your design tab, click "edit html" scroll down to customize your css and paste this code. Easy peasy! If you do any changes, always download a backup of your old template first, so if you don't like what you did, you can revert to the old one.


Okay, time to crash. I'm making biscuits and gravy early in the morning for Pj's father's day breakfast so bloggy fun must wait!

  1. I'm not a "computer" person either, so I feel your pain! Everything looks cute and well spaced out though :D

  4. I'm with Bex, must be that time of year! I, too, changed up my blog http://lifepse.blogspot.com a couple of weeks ago. I haven't stretched mine out though. In fact, I didn't know you could do such a thing! Proves how much I know.

    As for your blog everything looks great! Love the color palette!

  5. Everything looks marvelous, sweet gal. I know that sometimes once one starts tinkering behind the scenes it can be hard to know when and where to stop (lol, or at least that happens to me occasionally), but I love all the new (both this weekend and over the past few weeks) changes here and think your revamped site looks as cute as button.


    Oodles of hugs & cheerful wishes for the week ahead,
    ♥ Jessica

  9. Ooh, good to know about stretching, thanks for the tip! Apparently I'm with everyone else and have been wanting to do a wee bit of refreshing on my blog, too. I started with new tutorial buttons in my sidebar but that's as far as I've gotten. lol! I'm really liking what you've done so far!
