A few weeks ago, I stumbled upon a blog that well...looked just like mine! Ok, not exactly. There weren't any photos of the blogger drinking and house stalking, but still! They had the nerve to be using the same stock Blogger template that I use. Twin blogs? Not for me.
I tell my kiddos on a regular basis:
"Be your own woman/man!"
"Be the first, not the second!"
"Go big or go home!"
I didn't want a blog that looked so similar to anyone else's.
Brooke from Get Outta My Head Please contacted me about a blog redesign, I did what I always do.
I FREAKED OUT!
Wasn't a redesign exactly what I had been hoping to do?
Wasn't this perfect timing?
Yes and yes.
Not only do I hate change and hate to give up control, but also, what if everyone hates it and my comment section explodes with ugly comments?
I decided to go for it.
Brooke was so knowledgable and helpful and most importantly, she was patient.
In answer to her professional emails, I would respond with a lot of "SHUT TO THE UP!" and "I LOVE IT- WILL YOU MARRY ME?" and "YEEHAW!"
Word went out yesterday that HouseTalkN would be MIA for a few days while Brooke made the big switch-aroo. I woke up from a fretful night of "What if it is all GONE?" and "OMG- is it Friday the 13th??" dreams and VOILA! There it was- shiny and new and organized and ALL MINE!
At the end of the day, I am my own woman. My blog doesn't look like anyone else's.
I hope y'all like it, but most importantly- I LOVE IT.
If you are contemplating a makeover, contact Brooke. Tell her the hillbilly at HouseTalkN sent you.
