Here is what my blog looked like before I started.
I would love some advice though! What are the pros and cons of moving to Networked blogs? Do you hate my blog post title font? I love how it looks but I think it might annoy people, and some upper case letters are hard to read.
I am practicing my Mr. Linky skills thanks to the mini-challenge at The Book Butcher. Please link me your blog or Bloggiesta post!
You are making some great progress! What a good idea to post a pic of your blog "before". How did you do that?ReplyDelete
I did a screen capture on my phone actually because it showed more than on my computer screen. Then I changed it in my photo editing software from a png to a jpg and saved it up here. :)Delete
Hi Medea, another familiar face! So great to see that you're joining Bloggiesta! You have quite a long to-do-list here, but it does sound manageable. It's good that we have our tasks distributed across all three of us, so that's pretty much a relief. I have a few nachos and quesadilla over in my site, just in case you want to have a quick taste too. Best of luck!ReplyDelete
Virtual nachos and quesadillas, that's the healthiest! I will stop over, thanks for inviting me to the party!Delete
Your blog post title font works for me -- fun and playful and not that hard to read. The words aren't that familiar to me, so I have to read it slowly anyway!ReplyDelete
Great list! Hope you're having a fun and productive Bloggiesta!
Thanks Joy! I did end up changing it but might change it back in the future.Delete
I have been having a lot of fun, thanks!
Hi Medea, I linked up my most recent Bloggiesta update. Congratulations on getting the hang of Mr. linky! Nice work!ReplyDelete
Thanks for filling out my first Mr. Linky!Delete
Gosh, you've got a lot done already! Keep up the good work.ReplyDelete
Thanks! Hope yours is going as smoothly!Delete
You're almost finished! I was trying to decide what sort of theme page I could do...like what I'm known for loving...and I haven't thought of anything yet... Good luck today!ReplyDelete
That would be hard- I wish I had an idea for you. Hope you find a page you can love- I will keep checking back until you have. (ooh the pressure!)Delete
