** Time For A New Look - A New Beginning **

I've really had the urge to get a new template for my blog, especially after seeing so many really cool and unique ones .... But, I also feared trying to get technical and then totally screwing up what I already had, and I certainly didn't want to do that! So, I've chosen a relatively simple and safe one to go with, plus it seems to suit my style. What d'ya think?

It's a New Dawn (not really), a New Day (almost) and time for a New Look! On my blog, that is. I could also use a new look for "me", but one thing at a time!

I've also decided that this coming Sunday, April 25th, the beginning of a new week, will be My New Day, to get totally focused and stay totally focused on the writing of and completion of my book. I've allowed way too many things to get in the way of succeeding and That Stops Now! This is my New Look and my New Beginning!

  1. I like your design - very simple but effective. I much prefer a nice clean, uncluttered look, personally, so it definitely works for me :)

    I should be writing right now... thanks for the reminder! ;)

  4. I love polka dots. What a nice, happy theme!

    Good luck with the writing. Sometimes, taking a break, planned or not, is just what you need to find new inspiration.

  6. Like the new design, Becky! I'm always messing with my website and blogs. I'm not sure what that means...maybe that it's easier than sitting down to actually, you know, write?! :-)

  10. Hi Janel. I love polka-dots, too! Guess that's one of the reasons I chose it! And yes, a break from my writing has been a good thing, I think. I'm anxious to get back into it!

  13. I like the countdown clock on your blog that tells you how much time you have to finish your book. Good luck!
