In human years this blog is pretty young. I don’t know exact dates… always been bad with them, but I think it’s something like 3 years now i’ve been here. Same ol’ blog, same ol’ layout. In blog years, 3 years is a pretty long time i’d think! A lot of people get bored, run out of things to talk about… honeymoon phase wears off and their blogs get more sporadic. I’ve had a couple of blogs that happened to. Not this one!
When I started the blog, I had big ideas of how I wanted it to look but just settled on one of the layouts offered to everyone instead of creating something custom and then sloppily edited that picture you see up in the left corner.
I’m not gonna sit here and lie and say that I read tons of blogs… because I don’t (slightly hypocritical to write a blog but not read them, right?) other than my friends’ blogs, but I have skimmed around in the past and noticed just how many people have the exact same layout as I do.
My blog isn’t super popular, but it does get more readers each month. With that, and joining twitter just for the blog, and writing the book- I think it’s about time this blog gets a new dress.
It needs a serious revamp. I’ve always found it annoying that when I post pictures they get cut off because of the small space my actual text gets.
Now the question is, when will I have time to do it? I’d have to make a new image for the top (which I have ideas for already), and decide on the layout and the colors. I’m excited to do it, but it’s been a long time since i’ve messed around with HTML, and the only one in this house who knows photoshop is Thomas and he always whines when I ask him to do things like this for me.

@CJPendragon learn something new every day!
@WeberWriting Absolutely. It takes a bit of time and juggling but it is 100% doable. Just have to ignore the sanctimommies of the world
Don't feel bad for tossing frozen chicken strips in the oven and calling it dinner. Don't even feel bad if you don't turn them over. holdinholden.com/2016/05/shit…
To the piece of crap who broke into my car over the weekend- You think you found nothing of value to steal, but you actually took with you the nasty head cold my family has been passing around in that very vehicle for the past week. Enjoy, scumbag! xoxo, Germ Infested SUV

If anyone asks how I died, you can just go ahead and tell them "she was lured in by free pie in exchange for listening to 2nd graders screech Thanksgiving songs for 30 minutes"
