Changes…they are a-comin’

Your eyes do not deceive you.  I’ve changed the background for my blog.  More changes will be coming soon, although I’m not sure what they are yet.  Enjoy the new look!

  1. Don’t you love the word clouds on the right side? It’s such a quick way to see what the blog is about.

    Okay, I’m sorry if I missed by not paying attention, but did you always have WordPress?

    • I agree, Donna. I like tag/category clouds much better than drop downs and lists (although I do love me a good list too!).

      Yes, I’ve always had WordPress. Anne recommended that I can my theme to something brighter than the brown that I had before, so I changed it. I open to more suggestions!


  2. Looks good so far, girl!

    You might want to look into getting your page to load faster…. it always takes a loooooong time to load whenever I visit (this was the case with the other design as well).

    Have fun sprooce’n!


    • Thanks Heidi 🙂

      Exactly how would one go about having their page load faster? I have no clue!

      I’m figuring it’s probably because of all of the photos that I have. I also have my settings to include the max number of posts shown on the first page allowed. If it’s because of the photos, I could change the home page to include less posts. I only included more because the first thing that I do when I find a new blog is scroll down the home page and see which posts catch my eye. So I figure more posts…more opportunities.
      Maybe I’ll lower the number of posts on the home page for a few days and see if that helps.

      I’m open to any other suggestions that you have! Thanks again!


      • I think fewer posts shown would help – much less to load. You could always install the ‘link within’ tool to highlight other posts that shows up at the bottom of each post…

        Also – come visit and read about a fabulous new ebook I just found, I know you’ll love it!



  3. I love the new background! It brightens things up a lot. Great job.
    I can’t wait to see what you come up with next.


  4. we now have the same theme hahaha.. =p

    i actually want to get my blog design done by a professional. but i dont know where to start, who to ask, mmm.. do you have some suggestions?


  5. Heidi,
    I’m not sure why it’s not letting me reply to you directly…but I went ahead and changed the number of posts on my front page. Let me know if you see any difference in page loading.

    Also, thanks for all of the links! I think I’m going to be spending a lot of time on sneakmomma’s blog! I can’t wait to get the ebook…I should go do that right now.
