Ch-Ch-Ch-Changes…and Giveaway Reminder!

Ch-Ch-Ch-Changes…that song came to mind immediately when I thought about posting the changes that I wanted to make on my blog. It’s amazing how songs can just pop into your head like that…even more amazing is looking them up and realizing who sang them…and finding out other stuff you don’t remember from your teen years…oh well on to my changes…

I participated in The Bold and The Beautiful (your blog reviewed) Blog Hop sponsored by Gail@My repurposed Life and MeganDVD at Beauty in the Attempt. It was one of the best things that I have done for my blog! I received alot of beneficial input and made some new friends and even received a gift…my new header and button from Tracy! Based on everyone’s advice here are the changes that I have decided to make:

1.Move my profile further up ( my daughter says I need a new pic too)…I will also put some info on the about me tab in my new nav bar. I made this one myself! :-)

2.I’m trying for bigger better photos! Still saving for that camera!

3.I will be moving my linky party buttons to a separate page found in my new nav bar. I will post links on the day that I participate in the party.

4. I will be simplifying my sidebar in other ways too.

5.I will change my links to open in separate windows so that I don’t lose you as you open other links!:-)

6.I will be adding  a “top posts’ section and pics of my favorite projects…I’m glad ya’ll want to see more of my stuff!!!

And that’s it on the changes for now…I already have my new button, banner and nav bar in place.I’m working on moving the linkys…I need to get brave and move myself to the top! ;-) Oh, the giveaways…it seems that ya’ll do like giveaways, with minimal hoops…so I will be doing giveaways about every other week…Don’t forget to enter Tina’s Giveaway…it ends TONIGHT! Enter Tina\

I am working on giveaways from several etsy shops, 31 Bags, Tupperware, Pampered Chef and Starbucks!  They will more than likely start on Wednesdays and go for a week. My goal is to give some of the shops, and consultants some exposure and to give my readers some treats! I will try to keep the initial entry fairly easy, but have extra entries for helping to spread the word… a win/win! I am excited to be able to bring fun and exciting  things to you!

I’m off to my Tuesday “Bliss”-dom…have an awesome day!

  3. Sounds like some great ideas! I'm hoping to find some time sometime soon to implement some changes I have in mind as well.

    The quote Shannon wants is, "True Love is Friendship Set on Fire" the picture on my blog leaves out the "true" part. :)
