Good morning! 😀
No! Dont run away! It’s me! 😛
I have been itching to do some revamping of the site for a while now. It was tradition to do blog updates and face lifts during the Bloggiesta but with no Bloggiesta this year – I had to suck it up and make the changes on my own.
Working with CSS always makes me a bit nervous, but the very first time I messed with it, Natasha from Maw Books walked me through it step by step on Twitter. Now I am a bit braver, and this time even learned how to add a textured pattern to the background. (Note it did take me about three hours of messing around and tweaking but alas… I am happy with the results.)
Dont worry I am not one to continuously change my blog look… when other book bloggers do that often I get confused and unsure if I am on their blog, usually scrolling to the top to make sure whose blog I am on! 😛 Although… the occasional coat of paint gives a whole new look don’t you think?
My next task is to put some time into the sidebars… the books on them are outdated and I have had a few ideas I have wanted to implement for a while now but just have not done it.
And of course, today is 9-11. Ten years…. hard to believe isn’t it? Ten years ago I was working at Wal-Mart when I heard about the first plane… I remember wondering if I should go to the school and pick up my kids… it was a time where you really felt you should be with your family. I did stay at work, as we were encouraged to do so… but do you recall how quiet the skies were when they stopped all flights? ANd I recall how odd it was to hear that first plane in the air days after the tragedy.
Where were you ten years ago when you first heard?
