(Major) Blog Redesign!

R.I.P. old blog design!

Hi everyone! Soooo... as you may have noticed, LC's Adventures in Libraryland is looking A LOT different these days! I decided that it was time to do a major overhaul with "my look" for a couple reasons. First, I have been wanting a wider layout for a long time now, but the background I had before was too narrow for it. Second of all, while I did like the darker colors from my previous design, I thought it would be nice to have something a little more light and airy-- hopefully, this is more readable as well! And then I have also been wanting to re-do my header for awhile now, too-- something a little more professional and polished that will also allow me to work more with my Alice in Wonderland theme... I do miss my White Rabbit-- I will try to incorporate him into my signature or my rating system at some point...

So anyways, I spent the good part of tonight doing a blog makeover and now I'm exhausted but I hope you like it! A few more tweaks here and there and it should be good to go... Now for bed!

Please let me know what you think-- your comments are always greatly appreciated :)

  6. Love the new layout! The Alice feel to the banner is fantastic! I have been wanting a wider layout for my blog, too, but am as of now too scared of changing things around and screwing everything up. :)

  8. This is lovely! It is easier on the eyes too. I didn't realize that until you changed though. I especially love how you posted your before picture in the post. I think it was helpful but also it creates a kind of documentation for yourself.

    Congrats!! Everything really looks beautiful and professional.

  14. I can't get over how cute your blog is! I love it! I prefer light colored blogs. And your buttons are downright precious.

  15. I love the layout,the banner, and all the buttons and graphics that tie in with the Alice theme! However, I find the pink text scattered throughout posts to be a distraction. Rather than easily reading through your thoughts, my eyes are jumping here and there caught by the pink.
