First things first: what do you think of the new look? I know it’s pretty similar to the old look (I like simple themes and colors) but it’s got a few more options and a handy custom menu up on top. Take a look, check it out, and let me know if the sidebar text is too large or small (I had to adjust the settings on my work computer because the sidebar text was so big, but it looked fine on my home computer). The buttons above have replaced the quick-refs that used to be on the sidebar so I could make room for a photo. Cause, you know, I don’t actually look like a stack of stickies.
Second: Welcome Crusaders!
For those of you who don’t know about the Writer’s Platform-Building Crusade the info is here. I joined before I was finished renovating the blog, so I wasn’t able to post about it in time for you to join, but never fear! Rach says she’ll be holding another Crusade for anyone who missed signing up this time around. I’ll let you know when she’s opened the Crusades to new members again!
And finally: Happy Valentine’s Day! I’ve joined the “Show Me The Love” Blogfest today, and there’s a bunch of mushy stuff about romance and my husband below. Scroll down if you dare.
1- What is the most romantic thing anyone has ever done for you? For our first (wedding) anniversary my husband planned a surprise trip to the Oregon Coast for me. I had no idea where we were going (certainly not across the country!) but we went to get massages the night before the trip and he was so relaxed he let it slip when he was paying. I was so excited I was jumping up and down in the massage parlor.
2- What is your favorite love song? “One Sweet Love” by Sarah Barellies (see #4 on this post for more on this song).
3- Do you have a favorite romantic movie or book? There are quite a few character relationships that I really love, but I don’t have a specific movie/book that I go to for romance. Grace and Sam from Shiver are probably at the top of my list right now (Can I have my own Sam Wolf please?) followed by my own Lane and Rebecca (yeah, I know they aren’t real big on the romance, but neither am I. They have a real relationship with problems, and they work them out).
4- Do you have any romantic plans for Valentine’s Day this year? My husband is making our old go-to romantic dinner from college: sausage and peppers. It may not sound awesome to you, but this is the meal I think of when I think of college-hubby romancing me (it was easy to make in a George Forman grill and a microwave).
5- What’s your favorite romantic treat? Wine. I like chocolate too, especially around Valentine’s Day, but I’d rather drink wine than eat chocolate any day.
Check out the answers from the other blogfest participants, and have a wonderful day full of Wine, Chocolate, and your favorite people!
