You may have noticed that I’ve revised the design of this site. I changed my theme (site design template), fiddled with my widgets (that sounds dirty, but just refers to the handy doodads at the side and bottom of each page), and experimented with colors and fonts. Why the changes?
Well, I’ve been taking WordPress Blogging 101. The assignments we’ve already completed are hyperlinked, those not yet done…no hyperlink yet. Maybe you’re interested in taking Blogging 101 yourself. What do you think of the changes I’ve made so far?

What do you think of the design changes I’ve made so far? Any suggestions?
Your commitment is impressive. Sending good vibes your way.
Looks Great! Thanks for posting this! I just started giving my blog a face lift this will be helpful! 🙂
Right side-bar of The Commons
Very attractive to look at… and easy to find the way around your site… Diane
Your page looks great!!! how did you get the blogging 101 sticker?
That “d” alliteration is truly delightful!!!!
And, yes it does lift my spirits, as well.
Thank you, PJ!
love the trio of vibrantly jazzy floral arrangements – great greeting for a reader! Warms the heart and soul of the blogger, too, I’ll bet.
As a newbie this is really good to know, thx!
Looks great! Maybe I’ll try it out as well, I’ve got a lot to learn!
Enjoy. I actually tried to stay with my old blog design for branding purposes, but this theme offered side bars on posts & pages, which I wanted.
I think I have changed my theme too many times. It’s a bad habit I had on Tumblr too. Once finances look up, I’ll look for some shiny premium theme.
Thank you! I’m big on design aesthetics, too.
It certainly pushes you to learn and do a lot in four weeks.
Thank you, Ellen.
Learning a lot!
Thank you, Dame Dy, for deigning to offer your decree on my design.
I love the change. Really seamless design. I’m big on design. 😀
I like quite a bit! I took Blogging 101 last year…and it really helped me make my blog more of what I want it to be.
The new look has pizzazz. You are so very industrious. Hats off to you!
Brilliant! Might do this blogging 101 myself. XX
I love the design changes – you have a great eye!
I like the new look.
