Notice anything different?

I played around with the blog a bit last night. I'm not done yet, but I'm mostly liking the changes. One bad thing is that I had a little trick for posting bigger photos, and it won't work anymore. Previously, I would cut a photo into two parts, each at the size limit for the blog, and then I'd place them with edges touching, so it came out looking like one large photo.

This new blog style I'm using places a bit of a border around each photo, and so my little trick comes out looking like this:



That's a bummer, but one I'll put up with, unless I can figure out a way around it.

So, what do you think about the changes?

I read you blog in a Google Reader, and you picture trick still works there. I had to actually come to your blog to see what you were talking about, LOL.

I do like your new layout though!

Love the new header. Did you do it yourself?! Well done!

Hannah - thank you! I followed the instructions, and the border around the photos is gone, but unfortunately the space where the border used to be is still there! So, at least for now, I'm still not going to be doing my double-sized photos.

Thanks Jennifer and MyFly - glad you're liking it!

Hey Johanna, yup I made up the header, using a photo Boo took. It's the view of Celaque mountain from our property, obviously on an overcast day - I love the blues and grays on overcast days! Glad you like it. I'd be a bit embarrassed to tell you how long it took me. LOL
