Blogging has opened up a whole new world for me. I have not only met interesting people along the way but have found a wealth of decorating advice and inspiration. Technologically it has been a huge learning curve, learning how to link up to a party, add photos, "customize" your blog with widgets, learning what a widget even was, adding Linkwithin, etc. What I appreciate is that all those amazing bloggers out there who are or were in the same boat as me, willing to share not only their projects but are willing to share the ins and outs of blogging.
This week Funky Junk Donna (another great Canadian) gave some great tips on improving your blog and navigating your way through uncharted blogging territory. I took a brave step and have created a new header for my blog. The photos are branches of a tree by my front door taken against the afternoon gray sky after a rain fall. Living on the west coast you tend to live with gray skies as it rains quite a bit here. It can take its toll on you, it can begin to feel dreary. I have tried to see the beauty in the gray and love how the bare branches look against the gray sky. I am not one to use cutesy fonts with scrapbook pages filled with doilies and lace. I like pure design and the graphic elements that can be found in nature such as with the shape of trees, movement of water and the outline of the mountains I see from my home office window.
What I want to know is how to do you like my new header?
