Welcome! New Blog Design, Same Old Bonnie

Welcome to my newly designed blog! Finally I am not confined to the narrow format provided by the Blogger template. That was my goal - to have a blog that filled the screen. I am not sufficiently proficient in HTML to have made the change by myself. The credit must go to Jill from Blogs By Sneaky Momma. She took my vision and produced this new design that welcomes you now. (The design is new but it is the same old me at the keyboard, so really nothing has changed in terms of the content you will find here. New container, same content.)

If you are in the mood or market for even just a few tweaks on your blog (it does not have to be a whole makeover) do visit one of Jill's blogs. She is professional, competent, a patient teacher and her fees are very reasonable. Jill also has another blog, Sneaky Momma Blog Design which is a wonderful resource for bloggers. It gives free "how to" instructions and tutorials for bloggers who want to make any changes on their blogs themselves.

I look forward to continuing this blogging adventure with you lovely people who have decided to follow me. I am so appreciative of your interest and your insightful comments. In turn, I have loved and continue to look forward to checking in on your blogs where I have my perspective tweaked, my blind spots cleansed, my imagination ignited, my visual senses stimulated, my heart tugged and my funny bone tickled. What a delight!

  10. I love it. I figured out how to add a third column because I didn't like all that empty space, but I like this better.

  16. Hi Bonnie

    this sure is wide and clear...You have chosen good colour combinations that make it easy to read. Don't you wonder why some people have white on black? I avoid those sites...

    Now you have set the bar very high...

    Happy days
