New Blog New Me

06/23/10

$#@!$%  lbs

I don't want to talk about it.

I have been bugged by blogger about this new "design template" function so I decided to play around with it.  I'm pretty big on branding, so I've been very skeptical to change things up thinking that "my peeps know me as I am. What if they don't like the change?"  Especially since I have this Super Secret Fat Girl Identity.

That got me to thinking.  I'm changing me, so why not change my blog?  So, I did.  It was fun and here's the result of a week's worth of goofing around to see how it worked.  I wanted to keep a "feminine feel" without looking all middle school girl's locker and still keep the green and pink elements which are really all I care about anyway.  That and my little scale image.  I love that image.  I really like the simplicity of the image and it's been here since the beginning. So, my brand is my hot pink, my green and my little lime green scale. I'm ok with that.

I added a tab for my water tracking because I SERIOUSLY do not consume enough liquid in a day.  I can add up to 5 pages, of have a total of 5 pages, either way I was thinking about moving my "Blogs I heart a lot" to it's own page.  I'm also trying to figure out how to add comment capabilities to my other pages.  I'm working on one for the Crunchy Guns challenge, too.  Which I still haven't done anything about.  Damnit.


Like me, it's a work in progess.  I'm still the same, underneath this new blogger template.  I'm still the snarky JAFG that everybody's come to love.  Or tolerate.  Whatever.  I've just been altered a bit. 

Kinda like my pant size.

I love the new look! My weight loss blog's design is the only one I haven't messed with. I like it just the way it is. And after almost a year, I think I finally found a design that I like for my recipe blog. Now, if only the same thing could happen with my personal blog! :)

OMG - this weekend I accidentallly deleted my background layout and I kid you not - I nearly cried. I was like you - thinking "this layout" is what people know me for and I never would have changed it on my own...but fate intervened AND get this?? I love my new layout more. Who would have thought?

I like it!! It's simple but nice. But I'm really glad that you are keeping the scale image. It helps me identify you right away. It's definitely your trademark! Keep up the awesome work and don't let the F-ing scale get you down today. It's probably just bloat so DRINK YOUR WATER!!!
