What I have been doing the last few days is tweaking my blog. If you are like me, you may not ever be satisfied with the look and feel of your blog. I want my blog to reflect what I'm writing about, I want it to be simple to navigate, I want it to be reader friendly, and I want it to look somewhat professional. I say somewhat because I know that I am unable to pay someone else to create a professional blog for me. It's all apples and oranges, don't you think?
As I write that I start to think that I am not sure I would even want someone else to design my blog. Like my home, I want it to reflect who I am. I want to feel cozy and comfortable inside this space I have created.
So I tweak. One thing I did in the past is get rid of captcha. I don't like it. It makes it difficult to leave comments, and I want it to be as easy as possible for you to leave me your comments. Your feedback on what I am writing is important to me.
I have reduced the size of my header because I want you to be able to see what I am currently writing about without having to scroll down to see it.
Another thing I did was to change back to using just one font. Although I like all of the pretty fonts that are available, I like the clean look of having just one.
I also put a "back to top" arrow on my sidebar. It makes it quick and easy to get back to the top and see what my most recent posts are.

Thank you Brenda for making my blogging life easier. Between trying to maintain my Etsy shop and setting up my new booth I have been running around like a chicken with its head cut off. Believe me, this chicken isn't as young as she used to be.
So I continue to tweak. As we are expecting yet another winter storm to roll in here Sunday and Monday I will have plenty of stay at home time to work on it. I know spring is out there. She is just waiting to show her pretty head. I for one can't wait to see it.
P.S. I apologize for not visiting as much as I usually do, but I will be catching up with everyone this weekend.
