Looking up and down in a Friday photo mix

The other title for the post would be, “Just because”.

Just because it’s Friday.

Just because I finished Blogging 201 and completely changed the look of my blog. (Check it out!)

Just because it feels good to be random.

Have you had a “just because” moment recently?

    • Thanks, Katrien! I have to still take a look at your work in progress. šŸ˜€ Have you had any more ideas over the last two weeks? This is the… hmmm… fourth ?? major change to my blog. I find inspiration comes in bursts that seem sudden but lack of satisfaction has usually been simmering under the surface for a looong time.

  1. Great new look for the blog. It is always exciting to try to “upgrade” a blog. I did it in december I think and it was tons of work but fun as well (I postponed it nearly for an entire year before!)

    • Thank you! I agree. Working on what a blog looks like takes a really long time but it’s such a treat to see my vision taking shape. I really love your blog theme and especially your header photo. It’s always makes me smile. I also think having the big photos at the top of a post are really effective. I wish a little that people would visit blogs instead of always using the reader. My preference is to go straight to a blog. I love the whole experience of not only reading but seeing how the whole blog is set up. It’s a totally different experience than reading a post through email or the reader. What’s your preference?

        • So true. It’s also incredible how much a post can change on different devices. As much as technology offers options, sometimes it’s annoying to have to think, how will this post look on a tablet? an iphone? a laptop? I do most of my final bloggy stuff on a laptop. I was disappointed when one post I’d done with what I thought was a neat layout of photos to show recipe steps was destroyed on anything smaller than a laptop!

  2. It’s a great new look! Cleaner than before, and I like the picture widgets in the sidebar. Coincidentally, I also changed theme this week and discovered that having a new look is very inspiring and makes me want to work on the blog more than I did before. Is it the same for you?

    • Thank you! I’m really enjoying the new theme. The picture widgets took me a while to figure out. I was inspired by another blog I follow and I’m glad I gave it a shot. I’m going to have to take a look at your theme, too! I’m not sure how many people actually see my blog. I think most read it through the reader?? And yes! I agree with you. Having a nice blog that I’m happy with definitely makes me want to show it off and do great things! When I got some feedback, some said it looked like a magazine. I thought that was cool! How did you find your new theme?

      • I had been unhappy with mine for a while – in fact, I always wanted that magazine look. So I kept trying on every new theme that was published … until I found this one.

        • Again, congrats! That’s a good idea to keep trying new themes, too. At first, I had a hard time figuring out how new themes would look and abandoned a lot without doing that initial test trial. It’s like me trying to choose a paint color of a wall. I just can’t imagine it using only a tiny paint chip. šŸ˜€ Getting out of my way and simply *trying* new themes was a great icebreaker for me.
