In honor of my pledge to build a better blog in 31 days, I have given my blog a few small, minor tweaks – a face lift if you will.
What do you think?
- I created a new header, and since its a rotating header, I removed all other headers and only included this one and then one that matches it. One has a subtle pink middle on the daisies and one does not. That’s the only difference. Probably not noticeable to most and I’m okay with that.
- I removed a ton of widgets off my blog. Some of them were annoying, they seemed too cluttery and it just looks neater. I felt overwhelmed by how much info I was providing or sticking in my sidebars, so I cannot imagine how it felt to others visiting my blog. I also removed the “welcome” text box that welcomed visitors to my blog. That info can now be found on my about page which is something else I plan to “facelife” sooner rather than later.
- I moved my left sidebar over to become an additional right sidebar. I didn’t used to like this look, but for some reason its working much better for me now. I don’t know why I like the look, but I do.
So please, be gentle but be honest – I’d love to know if this looks better to you and seems less cluttered and more clean?
