Celebrating One Year of Blogging with a New Look!

I can hardly believe it's been ONE whole year that I've been blogging! One year of Dan asking me if I really have become one of those people that thinks others care what I say! Judging by my little counter below, I'd say someone is reading what I say- LOL! That's over 12,000 hits since December when I put the counter up. Every hit makes me smile!

I've learned a lot over the last year and my blog has come a long way. Thanks to all those who helped me out along the way. There's Sheri and Shauna who helped me log on to Blogger last April and get started. Sheri is also the one who introduced me to a tutorial site allowing me to figure out how to go to three columns. Thanks blogging friend! She also slips me some code now and then to try out.

Many thanks go out to my blogging friend Alana for working out this new header for me- well and my other cool headers too. She is the lady who found my font! I was having trouble with some colors particularly the side bar captions, but I finally figured out what I needed to change them. Would you believe that my captions are hooked up with my blog title color? And since I'm not using the widgit provided by Blogger there I missed it. But I prevailed!

Now if I could just figure out how to extend my header all the way across the page. That my friends is better left to someone who knows what they are doing more than I do. Maybe one day I will figure it out. Or maybe one day someone will come along to make my blog a prettier spot. Or maybe one day I will get myself an html book and amaze my family and friends. It's there...begging to be conquered!! But I've got other stuff to do.

So, you might see a few more color changes now that I've figured out the caption problem. That was limiting my creativity.

I'm thinking of celebrating my little blog birthday with a contest, but let me think on that one for a bit.

In the meantime, thanks for reading! Come back often!
