Instead of being a productive intern on Monday, I indulged and made some quick blog improvements to the ol' site. I actually love the new stuff. If you're reading via a reader (google readers..I'm with ya!), click through to see the new digs. As for how this transformation happened, I use a blogger template and insert pictures (designed by yours truly in photoshop and illustrator) with links. It seems to work well for this amateur. I'm definitely in the "trial and error" camp with these softwares, but I find it rewarding and exciting.
You'll notice the header is different, much more streamlined. Much more "modern vintage." I've moved my pages to the right side below my bio. I've also updated my social media buttons and pages buttons. My blog button is brand new. I'm in love.
Speaking of blog buttons, you may notice Melissa's on the side of my blog. As part of a blog swap, we feature each other's buttons. It's an easy way for me to promote fellow bloggers and discover more great writers living lovely lives. If you are interested in swapping blog buttons, shoot me an email allyson[dot]dobberteen[at]gmail[dot]com.
So, thoughts? Do you like my new look? What do you think of this blog swap business? Let's chat about design! I'm a sucker for it.
