Dress For The Job You Want

OK, first of all, for those of you using a feed reader, you MUST click through to my actual site! Alright, everybody here? Excellent!

Notice anything different?

That’s right! I have a new blog design! And I’m uber excited about it! (As you’ve probably gathered from my excessive use of exclamation points.)

You see, that old generic WordPress template just wasn’t me. Much too staid. But THIS? *waves her hands around like a QVC hostess* Is me. Oh. Yeah.

See that chick up there? That’s ME! An exact replica, in fact. Right down to the expertly coiffed hair, the flawless skin free of wrinkles and strange black hairs, the straight white teeth, and the perfectly arched eyebrows. It’s so accurate, it could be a photograph.

And look at the cute little talk bubbles over there! ——————————-> 
You can learn more about me, contact me, check out the archives, and see all the blogs I love (still working on these).

And hopefully you like pink! If not, just imagine your favorite color instead.

I have to give credit for this makeover to two people. First is the beautiful and witty Tanis of Attack of the Redneck Mommy. A few weeks back, she introduced us all to HER new blog design. And since she’s one of my idols, I just had to have a new design too. And who better to choose than the same person she used? (I promise this is not a Single White Female type of idol worship. No, really.)

Which leads me to the second person, the extremely talented Courtney of Judith Shakes Design. Let me tell you folks, she was SO wonderful to work with. She made the process so easy for me, a total idiot when it comes to anything having to do with design. Which basically means I told her what I wanted, and she did all the work. That’s a quality I admire in a person.

So, if you’re thinking of experimenting with something new, check out her website. I can’t recommend her highly enough!

So, why the new design? Do I want to be a famous blogger? Who knows? I don’t even know what I’m having for dinner tonight.

But you know, just in case I become famous, I’ll already have “my brand” in place. I’m thinking ahead, getting all that stuff out of the way, so I can concentrate on my writing. 😉

    I love the new background. I noticed it when I was perusing your blog, before you even wrote this post. 🙂

    Love, love, love the pink! It looks amazing.

    I’ve been considering a makeover with an original template for a while and thought I’d find time to put one together but things like kids wanting to be fed keep getting in the way.

    Maybe I’ll get Courtney to put together a little something for me too!
