I'm Getting a Makeover, and You Get To Watch Live!

August 17, 2011

So it was high time I had a makeover on this blog and since we are doing them on Tribal Blogs it made perfect sense to do one here. And you get to watch live as I change my mind fifteen billion times and drive the design team batty in the process.

The first Extreme Blog Makeover happened on June’s blog The Neurosis Files (you can see June’s Extreme Blog Makeover here), next we did Lauren’s blog – Think Spin (though she hasn’t had the official unveiling yet so I will leave that to her to announce), so it made sense that if we were going to be professional blog makeover gurus we should at least have awesome blogs ourselves.

I’m not using the Royal We, there really is a we, us, ourselves, etc… Kelly is the design specialist, design maven or design ninja, not sure which should go on her business card but she is the one who makes the creative things pop. She is the one who I am driving crazy about all the little changes. Kelly is, of course, a pro so she never lets on that I can be a little persnickety. She just makes it look better, which is why I love Kelly so much.

Stay tuned for more makeover madness!

    You’re too kind — thanks Jen! Currently my business cards have Lion Tamer printed on them but I’m changing that to Design Ninja immediately.

    It looks fabulous!!!! Jen and CG are wonderful to work with … They help calm the neurotic that lives in your head and likes to make you crazy.

    Hey, chickadee! I was wondering about you. I see you rearranged your furniture. Looks great! I really like it.

    Just one little thing — My RSS feed for you (as a bookmark in firefox) didn’t update with this latest post. I just happened by and noticed the new post. Do I have to resubscribe?

      I don’t think so but all of the furniture behind the scenes isn’t back up so that might be part of the problem. How are you doing, haven’t been around much.

        I’ll keep an eye on it. I’m fine, thanks. Just totally brain dead for blog posts. I’ve been on Facebook far more these days. It’s easier on my brain.

    Well, I like it! Tres chic (or however you spell it),

    I’m liking the re-construct so far. Clean lay outs are my favorite. I don’t like when blogs are busy with too  many bells and whistles. Takes away from the writing. IMHO

    Had the official unavailing today with wine and cheese.

    I think a blog makeover is just what I need when I get through this life makeover I’m currently going through.  Can I stay on Blogger because… well just because.

    I’m late and this may be the completed version but I’m guessing there will still be more to come.  Love the current layout.  Nice Job Kelly!
