New Year, New Blog Design

Happy New Year!  I hope everyone had a wonderful, relaxing holiday.  Luckily, I still have the rest of the week before I have to go back to work. Yay!  I have been SUPER enjoying sleeping in.

As you can see, I have decided to switch templates for the new year.  I liked the pink and orange swirly background, but it's time for a change.  What do you think?  Do you like the fire?

If I ever get internet hooked up at home (grrrr), I have a picture that I might try to upload for the background instead... 

This background/design thing is hard!  How do/did you choose your blog and/or website design?

Anyway, don't forget I have the SCBWI FL Regional Conference coming up in less than two weeks!  Yay!  And that means tidbits and signed book giveaways for you when I get back.  If you know anyone who'd be interested, send them my way.  Remember, followers before the giveaway is posted get extra points. :)

  1. Finding the right design is def hard... its the calling card of your blog, the identity... so ofcourse it should be well thought out =)

    I actually got mine from parajunkee... I do make blog designs for other bloggers for a pretty low price if you're interested =D

  2. I really like a lot of the designs at Cutest Blog on the Block. When I found the right shade of blue and a scroll in the same design, I was ecstatic. :)

  3. Happy New Year! I like the flames — They are not Elmo's world at all. :]

  4. Thanks, Larissa and Marcia! I'll keep those in mind for the next time I need a change! LOL. I feel like I can still play a little now, but I'll probably pay for a design and stick with it when I get published (someday).

    Lol, Tara! :)

  5. Your blog feels toasty on this cold night.

    I'm picky about blog designs. I try out dozens before I finally settle on one.

    It was great seeing you last night at SCBWI Florida.

  6. I like the new blog design :) And I know what you mean about it being hard to choose one, I ended up paying for mine. Now I know a bit more about design though, so when I'm ready for a change, I'll probably design it myself without a template.
