Blog Makeover ♥

Hello, my lovelies!

Some of you may have noticed I gave my blog a new look, yippie!! I've been wanting to do this for a while (since the beginning of October), but I put it off because it was neither important nor urgent on my list of things to do. BUT...the thought has been nagging me for a while, especially as I started checking my bare blog daily, so I spent the last 24 hours playing with/working on this (with breaks of course, gotta sleep and eat!).

I used to have a website (I've had several, actually) and when I first started this blog, it was meant to be an addition to my website. Now, I've let my web hosting expire ($200-$320 to renew for the next 2-3 years? no thanks) and my domain, http://www.diananguyen.com/ forwards to this blog. I'm still a Blogger newb...quite apparent tonight as I was cleaning through my labels for my new tag cloud and accidentally published two unfinished drafts, lol. I didn't even realize I'd done that until I saw comments on those entries in my e-mail.



By the way, I added the tag cloud because I love Yumeko's so much. She and I are doing a swap and I've been stalking her blog for goodies—it really showed me how useful tags/labels are!

But anyways...I basically took my old website's color scheme, background and images and tweaked them for this blog. I'm sure I'll be making a few minor changes here and there until I think everything's perfect. ;)

Here are a couple of screen shots of how my website used to look:


You can tell two things about me from them...one, that I like to stay up late into the wee hours of morning, and two, that I'm a person who likes to multi-task! (just look at all those tabs, hehe.)

And if you're really bored, here's a blog I'd written about my website.

If you must know though...blogging/Blogger RULES over having a personal website!! My website was dead weight in cyberspace, and blogging has become my latest addiction, one that encourages other addictions but also I love blogging for all of the great gals (no boys yet) and useful info on everything! Not to mention, it's FREE! ♥ ♥

I ♥ blogging and I ♥ you!!

Night night.

  5. by the way, how do you make it so that your subscriptions are shown on your page as you do? i have subscribed to so many people that I don't think blogger.com/dashboard shows me all of them.Thanks ahead of time.

  7. wow your old site looks great too!!

    As for the Twitter... I didn't know what it was either, but I kept seeing it on everyone else's blogs. So I finally googled the sucker! www.twitter.com It's like mini blogging using the same amount as characters as a text message. And you can update on what your doing or thinking from anywhere with your phone or web. Then you have the option of putting your updates on your blog. It's actually been pretty fun, even though I've only been signed up for it for 12hrs!! LOL!
