Looking fresh

It was well past time.

My old blog was looking as old as I have been feeling, so I called some help and got a blog makeover.

If you are in an email or a reader you will need to click on the heading to see what I am talking about. The heading that says "Looking Fresh" in bold, just click it and see what happens...


It used to look like this:




We are still playing around a bit but hopefully the new look is something you all like. Gone are the pictures of me and the girls and in is a more simple heading that is suitable for now.

Gone is the left hand column and all the junk that it started to fill up with.

And in are some new buttons - just over there - to the right, the little blue squares, there is one for all the other places I hang out, there is even one for Instagram, where I can be found micro blogging on days that I don't blog, especially as so far this year there have been quite a few days blog free.

Thanks to Liz Griffiths for being more than patient with my changing requests and late night emails and for doing all the hard work behind the scenes.

Due to the spammers hanging around here so much lately I have also turned off the Anon comments, I know this will restrict some of you, let me know if it does and I can consider turning them back on again, but for now, the spam comments are just toooo many.

    1. Yes, Liz is a very patient lady, and calm, no rude emails from her when I changed my mind on things.

  4. I love it. Just on the anon posters though - do you think commenters may be put off by the limited options to post as non-anonymous? A lot of people are probably not bloggers or don't have AIM or Google.

    Many other blogs also have the Name/URL option and also a Twitter option for commenters. People seem more likely to have Twitter handles than AIM. Just a thought!

    1. The name URL option disappears when I take off the anon which is really annoying. I may have to consider one of the other options like Disqus, which also has pros and cons I know.

  7. Look at you! Great look. I had the spamming issue too. I turned off anon, then I went back. I went to verification, which I hate but it has them stopped in their tracks! x

    1. Have you had any complaints. It's a pain that it turns off the Name/URL option at the same time and not just the anon.
