Sprucing up your sidebar is the topic for the day. All I have done for two weeks is spruce up. My life in general has been put on hold, but my blog is dressed to the nines and ready for action!
I’ve added color and taken it away, added text, then removed it and added something even better. My header picture was like a revolving door, constantly circling and eventually coming to rest as is. Yesterday I added a new menu tab! See it up there under my header? Yep! That little baby goes into effect next week. Watch for it.
So now it seems the sidebar widgets need to be tinkered with once again. Sigh 😦 I know…I know…There is always room for improvement and I do have a couple widgets I want to tweak.
It’s all about the personalization if you think about it so while I have your attention let me throw this out at you. I’ve read, liked, commented, and re-blogged a bit this week. Really it’s been more than a bit.
Sometimes when someone comments to me, especially when they are new to my site, I have no idea what their name is. I mean their given name, the one they answer to when beckoned. Right there hovering over their gravatar it may say Xtimes4 or ontheroadagain, or even seeyouinmydreams! Hummm? I’d love to call them by name to make it more personal when I answer this comment, but what in the H E double L is it?
You could skip on over to their blog site before answering to snoop around in the about page and maybe, but not always, come up with a name. OR… they could sign their comment with it! That sounds good to me!
It’s a plan. I’ll start signing my name ~Elle when I comment on other blogs – if I don’t forget! What do you think? Too much trouble? We’ll see!
Just a thought that skipped through my brain today and I thought I would give it a whirl!
