New Design

I'm going to be making some changes around here over the next few days. So far I've only changed the header (do you like it?), but I'm planning to add tabs that I think will make the blog more organized.

Is there anything you feel is missing from here? Anything you'd like to see reorganized? (While I can't make any promises, I'll definitely take your ideas into consideration.) Don't hesitate to leave a comment with suggestions!

Make some pages! An About page and a page that links to your Twitter and Goodreads accounts would probably be helpful.

@Lydia Planning on doing that! :) I've been looking up post after post about how to change the design so I can add those things, but nothing has been helpful so far. Do you know of any good sites that can help me learn?

I love the new header! Maybe also updating the colors on your background and such, could help freshen it all up a bit! :) best of luck!

I'm really excited to see the new design! I know it will be great. :) If you need any help or whatnot, just shoot me an email! Stay strong and wonderful!

I agree with Lydia... pages would be awesome! Though I'm afraid I don't know much about designing. Good luck! xD

Lydia said...

@MV: Pages used to be a widget that you could add in your sidebar, and you could move it to the top of your layout to create tabs. Apparently that's not the case anymore, but I did some looking around. You know how to go to your "Layout" or "Stats", right? Just look for "Pages" in that same menu. Click, and it will have buttons to add pages, and then a button that lets you choose how your pages display.

Hope that helps!

Great new header!

I'm excited about how you're sprucing it up! Exciting! I'd like to learn more about pages, too. I'm going to have to check out Lydia's suggestions - I didn't know it was an inherent option in Blogger! Woohoo!

The Magic Violinist said...

@Karoline Thanks for the ideas! :)

@MorningTime4 Aww, thanks! :) Your blog is super cute, so I might take you up on that!

@Maria Ha ha, I think I've got it figured out, but rearranging the template like that is confusing. :P

@Lydia All right, thanks for the explanation! :)

@seventytwofishes Thank you! :)

@Boquinha Thanks! :)

I love the new layout (didn't know you could add tabs)! I almost wish "The Magic Violinist" part of your header was bigger, but that's just me. Take it or leave it, doesn't matter. Great job! :)

@Drew Carson Glad you like it! :) The pages are SUPER simple to add, if you ever want to learn how. Thanks for your suggestion!
