For those of you who have been around for awhile, you might be thinking you’ve changed the site AGAIN. Didn’t you just change the look of the blog not too long ago?!
And you’d be right. I did change the look of this blog not too long ago, and it does seem too soon to be changing it again…right?
Unfortunately, I wasn’t as pleased with the last look as I’d hoped to be. It was a welcome change, especially after having the same look and feel for almost 2 years, but there were some features I missed from the old design that I didn’t get when I switched themes.
For one thing, I didn’t like the fact that the menu was on the bottom of the page. It seemed sort of counter-productive to me, especially since I kept forgetting where it was when I kept scrolling to the top of the page.
Secondly, I didn’t like my sidebars on the bottom of the page. I like having them on the side, since I often use it myself to navigate the site myself. Scrolling to the very bottom of the page seemed a tad bit annoying.
So here’s the new and updated look…again! To be honest, I like it a lot more; I love the font and little details included. I even went ahead and made a gallery on the side with some of my favourite recipes. Hope you find this new feature useful!
In other news, I was SO sure that April would be the month that I would finally start submitting my manuscript to agents, but unfortunately things haven’t worked out that way. Instead of submitting it to agents, I’ve been on the hunt for a few more readers to make sure my manuscript is the best it can be. Here’s hoping this is the last round of revisions, since I’m getting quite sick of the thing!
I had also hoped to start outlining my new manuscript now, but life has taken me by storm (read: I’ve been rewatching all 3 seasons of Downton Abbey), and I haven’t yet devoted any time to it. Today was going to be the day I was going to start, but then I ended up fiddling with the site today, which ended up taking A LOT longer than I anticipated. *sigh*
Anyways, I don’t have anything exciting or interesting to add. I won’t bore you with small talk about the weather or any other mundane subjects, so this is where I’ll stop. Hope you’re all having a good start to the week 🙂
Thanks for reading,
