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!!
