11 months today and a new blog look...

We have been LID for 11 months today!

It's hard to believe we've been waiting almost a year now and it's been 17 months since we submitted our adoption application.

I converted to the new version of Blogger and finished my new blog look this afternoon. The only major problem I have since the conversion is that a lot of my post comments are now showing as anonymous when they weren't anonymous before! This bothers me because now when I look back I can't tell who said what.

I'm hoping this problem won't continue from this point forward and that it only affected past comments. I'll be finding out soon enough!

It's very pretty, Donna! Is this one of the new blogger templates or is it an original creation? Lovely!
Congrats on 11 months!

Hi Kathy,

No, I don't really like the templates they have to choose from so I created my own look.

Love the new look, you're a creative genius!

I'm still one of the last holdouts on old blogger from the looks of things. I'm hanging tightly onto the cliff edge for now.

Connie said...

Oh yes, sorry, congrats on #11!

I'm right behind you....

You mean when I finally have to switch I'll have to give up my template? I LOVE my genealogy blog template--it's perfect for it's subject matter!

I am so impressed with you template skills! Lauren is going to be framed beautifully when she arrives. Eleven months closer!!! I wonder if our girls are born yet...

Elise said...

Love the new look too (you can tell your a scrapper;) and maybe I will feel confident enough to switch to the new blogger now after seeing yours.

Congrats on 11 months!

WOW.. I just love that new look. All spring like and Happy. I'm so envious because I still can't figure out the whole "change the template" thing. How did you figure it out? Did you get a book, read certain articles or are you just a bloggy genious?

Also, happy 11 months down. Hopefully no more than 6 months to go for you!!

When I switched to beta I lost all of my original template, so now I just have the standard cookie cutter blog look. How did you retain yours?

Kim said...

Love the new look! Another great job!

Congrats on 11!
