New Look...

So I've been trying to come up with a new look for Book of Kells. I found this lady who I liked because she reminded me of Anne Sexton. Though she is giant and I'm still working on that.

I know change is hard, but I'd be interested in knowing if I changed anything on this blog, what would you like to see? And what do you think about the faux-Anne?

I'm open to banner suggestions. I am a basic blogger who tries to do her best with limited knowledge and resources, but I am open to learning more.

I'd love any comments or ideas for this blog and of course, topic ideas are always welcome...


  1. As a relatively new reader, I don't have many suggestions--I enjoy your blog very much! The one thing I would note, though, is that when I get to the blog, the first thing I see is the "post" about the reading series. Because it's always on top, I came by a few times and thought you hadn't written any new content, so I clicked away from the blog... But in any case I like the Ann Sexton-esque woman!

  2. The image does blend in really well. I like it. But it is way too big, though. Generally, the header should not take more than one third of the main screen, I think. And I think it's a great idea to personalize it more, although I would still find it fascinating no matter how it looked.

  3. WB- I moved the Crab Creek Reading to a post since it's tonight. I can see how it would seem there weren't any new posts if you weren't on Follow.


    Michael-- I knew you'd appreciate anything Anne inspired. ;-)

    Lori-- I agree on the size! I will continue to work on something...
    My goal this year is to learn a little more about graphic design and how to improve my blog-- both on looks and content. We'll see how it goes.

    Appreciate all your comments!

  4. i think you have a nice solid looking blog :) i love the new header. i've been debating starting an actual website instead of just the blog but it is daunting given my lack of programming skills!


Always love to hear from you...and the anonymous option is open for those feeling shy.
