I just got a new blog makeover! Well technically this is makeover #3 since this blog started June 2006. Why did I need a makeover when the previous design was so cute? Well, the layout was sooooo customized that when blogger switched to "New Blogger", my blog stopped working. Gee thanks, blogger.
My friend who did the last design is no longer in the blog design business, so she recommended her friend Jen, who is a graphic designer and is very familiar with the New Blogger. Yes, it's true I designed several blogs in the past, including my other two, and several for friends, but New Blogger hates me and my customized html. The feeling is starting to be mutual, New Blogger.
So enter Jen, who is now my friend too. We're still finishing up little details here and there, but this new, sleek design is all her work. I absolutely love it!! I'm going to keep using Jen here and there to sleekify my other blogs, but I'll share her too. Let me know if you want her info and I'll share. Sharing is caring. Just like with prescription meds. Totally kidding. *avoids eye contact*
This also means I'm re-entering the blog world after a long hiatus. What was with that hiatus? Well I'll get to that too, but I may have to do a two or three part series or the post will be so long you guys might fall into a coma by the time you're finished reading it. No one wants that.
Am I going to blog about uncomfortable stuff that most people don't talk about? You betcha. Only this time I learned my lesson and my comments will be moderated. Mean anonymous comments will be deleted. Nice anonymous comments can stay. That may not sound fair but this blog is more like a big purple dictatorship instead of a purple democracy. *whispers* That means I can do what I want, you're not the boss of me, and all that jazz. I might have a slight issue with authority.
And just because the comments are moderated doesn't mean I'm going to make you guys do the "prove you're not a computer word verification" option. I think I might be part computer because I am completely word verification-challenged. I never get it right on the first try, and often after several tries I just give up and my fabulous, witty comments never go through. All that to say... in case any of you are part-computer too, I will not make you go through that word verification-torture in order to comment. You're welcome. Those of you who are masters at the verification-thingy... I am envious. #truth
Having said all that... what do you think of my new makeover?
