If you've visited my blog in the past 24 hours or so, you've probably noticed that it has undergone some significant layout changes. Most importantly, I have a new banner! It was drawn and designed by my lovely, fantastic, and super-talented friend Carey. Thank you so much! I'm absolutely thrilled by it. I'm going to pretend that the white flakes outside the window are not snowflakes but rather dandelion puffs or scarily large balls of pollen. Wheeeee.
I've decided to go with a simpler layout this time, two columns, mostly black and white. I love colors but there's something so appealing about simplicity. I'm still tweaking some things but the big changes are done. Hope you like it! And yes, I did the coding myself. I'm self-taught. I just took a classic blogger template and tweaked it a hundred times over the course of several hours. Thank goodness for Google to help me with my coding questions.
There will probably be several other changes content-wise coming, but the most important one is that I am going to try out not assigning ratings to books I review. Ratings are just so hard, so subjective. Silly things such as your day's mood can affect them. So I'm going to focus on the content instead. I'm really excited about this move. Let's see how it goes!
Happy spring, everyone!
