New Year, New Look.


I wasn't intending on updating my blog layout so soon after my last update (I actually really liked it!) but the whole design of my old one was a pain in that depending on screen size it looked a little skew-whiff, especially on my iPad which I just can't be dealing with when I have to look at my blog everyday! 
I love playing around with the design of my blog but in the end I decided to purchase a super simple and clean looking template for a change (from an Etsy shop), though it's still not perfect just yet as I can't seem to edit the code correctly to allow my links in blog posts to be automatically underlined, it's very frustrating! I'd also love to add in one of those nav bars that float at the top, I'm never satisified clearly! We'll see how long this layout sticks around for I guess ;) but it's nice to have a change with the new year about to ring in. I'm not one for celebrating the New Year, I'm already 60 in a 22 year old's body so we're doing the whole 'pizza and tv' route which is always a favourite... 


Let me know what you think of the new layout! :) do you prefer clean and simple blog layouts or something a little more colourful/fancy looking?

  9. Clean and simple. just the way I like it. Liking the new look Annabel. Oh and about the pizza and tv to celebrate the New Year? Sounds like heaven to me. I went to the same route, minus the pizza ;)

  11. The clean design is nice, to add underlines to your links, you need to find a{} or a:link{} in your CSS, and add "text-decoration: underline" in that block, if it says "text-decoration: none" just change the none to underline. I don't mind helping if there's anything else you need to edit, you can contact me via twitter @Zara19.
