I gave my blog a little big of a makeover/makeunder. Click over and check it out if you’re viewing in a reader, I’d love to hear what you think! (If you do, you’ll notice that I changed my comments a bit, we’re back to the blogger comment form.) The biggest thing, for me, is that I’ve fixed a few of the little glitches, like the missing “Older Posts” button on the bottom. I think it looks a wee bit cleaner, too. I do have some teeny tiny things I want to fix, because I’m very particular about certain little bitty teeny weeny things, but we’re mostly aces, I think!
Actually, the watermark on the (completely random) photo reminds me, I’ve also fixed things with the whole blog url thing. I’ve had www.onthelaundryline.com for a while (over a year actually) but previously it was just a stealth forwarding thingy. (Don’t let my technical terms confuse you, now. We can’t all be as internet-coding-stuffers literate as I am.) Now I have things all agreeing nicely with blogger and if you look on your address bar, you will see that I am now always showing up as www.onthelaundryline.com … no matter what you type in your bar. Well I mean, no matter what you type that lands you at my blog. If you type in facebook.com you will definitely not get my blog. If you do, please do let me know, I’d be pretty impressed at my own self.
This picture above is just because I snapped it this morning when I was being a terrible person and taking pictures of my happy little beanie instead of picking her straight up like she was sortof expecting. I’ve been told before that she almost doesn’t seem real. So there’s some reality for ya. (Her head went and grew and now she’s down to only two chins. I hardly recognize her.)
But you’re thinking, get on with it, Laura, you mentioned a giveaway. Why, yes I did. See, back in the fall I whipped up two Noodlehead gathered clutches. I was going to give one away to celebrate my birthday, and got permission from Anna to do so. However, I spent my third trimester half a step away from having anxiety attacks and avoiding anything that I had on my to-do list, no matter how fun. So while I gave the other one to my sister in law to thank her for watching Nicole for me so much during the last two months and helping me out in many other ways, I never did do the giveaway I intended. So I thought I’d do it now to celebrate me finally marking “fix the blog layout” off my to-do list!
This cute little clutch has a divider in the middle inside, as well as two card slots for say, your debit card and your drivers license. It is perfect for running out and about, or for throwing in your diaper bag. And the colors feel like spring! You know what does NOT feel like spring? Anything outside of my windows right now, that’s what.
To enter to win, simply leave a comment telling me what you think of the new blog layout. Or what you think of winter. Or what you think of the idea of cookie-in-a-cookie. Or perhaps the wierdest thing anyone has ever thrown at you. (mine would probably be a bottle of bbq sauce, courtesy of Nicole, just a few nights ago. A little more ‘reality’ for ya.)
GIVEAWAY IS A DRAW, OPEN TO INTERNATIONAL ENTRIES, AND ENDS MARCH 8th.
Because my calendar says its International Women’s Day and that seems kindof appropriate.
Also, if you don’t mind, I would love your vote on Top Mommy Blogs. Voting will have really no influence on whether or not you win this clutch.
But it will definitely make you lose 10lb.
I’m apparently not supposed to make stuff up to get your vote. But I’d like to see you prove that’s false.
Ha, psyche. I might be wrong, but you just voted for me so who cares? SHAZAM!!
