Why the Changes?


You may have noticed that I’ve revised the design of this site. I changed my theme (site design template), fiddled with my widgets (that sounds dirty, but just refers to the handy doodads at the side and bottom of each page), and experimented with colors and fonts. Why the changes?

Well, I’ve been taking WordPress Blogging 101. The assignments we’ve already completed are hyperlinked, those not yet done…no hyperlink yet. Maybe you’re interested in taking Blogging 101 yourself. What do you think of the changes I’ve made so far?


One: Introductions
Two: Titles and Tagline
Three: Following Topics and Blogs
Four: Focusing on Your Audience
Five: Exploring Themes

Six: Perfecting the “About” Page

What do you think of the design changes I’ve made so far? Any suggestions?

    love the trio of vibrantly jazzy floral arrangements – great greeting for a reader! Warms the heart and soul of the blogger, too, I’ll bet.

        I think I have changed my theme too many times. It’s a bad habit I had on Tumblr too. Once finances look up, I’ll look for some shiny premium theme.

          Enjoy. I actually tried to stay with my old blog design for branding purposes, but this theme offered side bars on posts & pages, which I wanted.

    I like quite a bit! I took Blogging 101 last year…and it really helped me make my blog more of what I want it to be.
