How Do You Like Me Now?

I am thrilled to roll out my new background and theme.  I got it at Simply Blog It Backgrounds.  I did a little re-arranging and clean-up on my sidebar, changed my margins, tweaked some colors, and this is my new home for the foreseeable future!   I love this theme, because I was looking for something that had a spring feel to it and I wanted something that would tie into my theme for this year's Blogging from A to Z April Challenge.

If you haven't tossed your hat into the ring for the Challenge, you really should:  it is a wonderful experience!   If you are in the Challenge, I hope you've already been cleaning up your blog and making it visit friendly.

Before you go, would you tell me what you think of my  new look?  And I'd love to know if you plan to join in the Challenge this year!


Thanks!

God bless and keep you,

Barbara

  2. I like it; much better than your other one from last year's challenge. That was hard to read sometimes. Yes, participating in the challenge and even got them all written, just need a few more pictures taken and then all done :)

    1. Thank you for commenting, Betty! I'm not as far along as you. I have my theme and ideas for all the entries, but I have not written any yet. Am off the week prior to Easter, so I expect to do a lot then.

  3. Festive! I like it.
    I think last year's Challenge is how we found each others' blogs.

    1. Thank you, Alex! I think you are right. I heard of you and saw you everywhere before then, but I do think last year was the first time I actually visited and followed and such. Does that mean it's our anniversary? ;)

    1. Thank you, Paula! Yes, it is brighter than anything I would normally choose. I do think once I announce my A to Z Theme, the reason for my choice will be more obvious. I'll probably tone it down to something a little cooler in May.

  8. Oh yes, your new look definitely says "It's Spring!"
    Yes, I am participating in the challenge, but now I'm terribly concerned with my own blog in terms of readability ;-)
    Looking forward to your posts!

    2. Looks great! You're really raising the bar....changing your entire blog to go along with your theme??? Overachiever!!

      I've signed up for the challenge, but am only doing 1 blog instead of 3 this year! Look forward to see your posts!

    3. LOL If you knew me better, you'd know I'm really not an overachiever. I can't imagine trying to post for three blogs during the challenge! Sure you'll enjoy it more with only one blog in the mix.

So glad you stopped by! Come 'round any time. ~ Barbara
