So, what do you think?

Posted by Gwen |

I spent all day today redoing this blog. I was supposed to be doing laundry and cutting grass and cleaning house, but this was more fun. Well, at times it wasn't fun at all, like when I lost all my settings and had to start from scratch. That sucked.

I wanted, first and foremost, to get away from the boring standard blogger templates. I was actually looking for something less busy and more zen, but had little luck getting the ones I liked to work. Something about parsing and XML. It was Greek to me so I used the one I liked best that worked.

Do you like it?

wow, it got all girlie up in here! pretty.

way to spend a labor day. beats laundry and yard work. :)

i wouldn't know how to change a blog template if a new template bit me on the ass. thankfully jester did a gorgeous job creating my site. there will be no changing any time in the near future. or even not so near future!

happy monday, pretty lady.

Who are you? What have you done with Gwen and her blog? You won't get away with this!

Yeah!!! As soon as I clicked I was like - nice. Looks great. Love the flowers. This makes most of the other blogs (except mine) look like French cheese cloth. Lookin' good.

Dr Zibbs said...

Ohhh and one more thing I just noticed. Your email address and it's written in code so the dummies can't figure it out. Plan to get an email from me. Once I decipher it.

I like the new digs, Gwen. I live by the motto that housework will always be there so do the fun stuff first. That's why my house is so cluttered, see.

RW said...

Looks cool 2 me.

mary said...

I like it Gwen! Those daisies
don't cause cancer, do they? 'Cause
they're my favorites.

LM said...

Much better. But I will always gravitate towards more color. That pale yellow/off white color was too drab.

Mo said...

Rock on. I feel very at home in your shiny new "zenified" blog. Very soothing.

:)

Gwen said...

Hey! I can't see the flowers on my work computer. I cleared my cache and cookies and restarted my computer . . . anyone know why and how I can fix it?

To anyone who only sees a block of read and a block of grey, THERE'S MORE TO IT!

Stacie said...

it's beautiful!

mike said...

well, I like the pink color. I am not a big fan of the blogroll that goes in order of when said blogger last posted. (bc I rarely post and otherwise I would be near the top if it was alphabetical) But overall, I think change is always good, it keeps me on my toes. nicely done.

You clean up real nice, miss.

Well, I have nothing to compare the design to since I've never been here before, but my curiosity was piqued since you got a link from Elle Michelle on Blog Day. I could not believe there is, in fact, another blogger in St. Louis! There needs to be a bloggy community here, because my commute to Chicago is getting expensive.

Gwen darling would you help me with mine now?
