Have you noticed?
Blog This Mom! has a new outfit on.
Isn’t it purdy?
Does it make my butt look fat?
So I bet you’re wondering where I got this lovely new outfit. It just so happens that Melanie at BeanPaste, with her big heart and mad photography/design skills, donated not one, not two, but three new blog designs for the NieNie Benefit Auction. And guess what? I won one of them!
So . . . Melanie waved her magic wand, sprinkled some fairy dust, and whipped up a new masthead, tweaked colors, fiddled with fonts, and laid out new layouts. She still has a bit more to do, she says, although things look pretty groovy to me.
After Melanie tweaked fonts and colors and stuff, I went in and tweaked fonts and colors and stuff too. You know how you just gotta play with your hair after getting it cut and styled? It was like that. I just had to fiddle around with it. So anything that doesn’t look purdy is my doing.
Melanie was so sweet about everything too.
During the transition period Melanie sent me comforting emails.
During the transition period I alternately passed out, ate M&Ms, hit the refresh button on my blog every two seconds, ate M&Ms, broke out in a cold sweat, ate M&Ms, fretted, ate M&Ms, and was grateful for Melanie’s patient competence.
I might be all iPhone boyfriend blah blah blah and laptop boyfriend yada yada yada and blog this and flickr that, but the truth is that I. Am. A. Big. Scaredy. Cat. when it comes to making changes to anything, particularly changes to anything with a byte.
I’m still all tWitchy.
Another handful of M&Ms ought to help.
I am grateful to Melanie for coming by to help me put on the Ritz in time for the new year. Melanie’s custom blog designs come with generosity, soothing emails, and patience. Go check out her website for details. M&Ms not included.
