Day Fifty - Five or Under Construction

So I am having blogger envy. Don't get me wrong, I have yet to meet the blogger equivalent of a mean girl. In fact, everyone has been surprisingly cool. Like barbecue on the grill, good music playing, mojitos chilling -- cool.

But these chicks have some BEAUTIFUL blogs and in comparison, well, mine is less than fabulous. So in my passion for all things fabulous, I am going to do something about it. This blog is going to undergo a makeover. Now, have I mentioned that I am technically illiterate? This blog was about as out there as I have ever gotten. So this makeover will not be overnight.

But I am going to do it. I have a brilliant brother who is getting a PhD in computer something or other and I have in the past depended upon him to set up anything computer related. And he has offered. But this is my baby and I need to bring her to life. Now there are birthing coaches and I will seek help from any and all who will help -- brother included. (Thanks to UM who has already sent me a link to a helpful site!)

So I am a couple challenges short and I am therefore challenging myself. I will makeover my blog to better reflect me. I also have had a personal dot com that as done nothing but receive email and for my tenth challenge, I am going to learn how to create a website.

There. I am officially scared. I have a lot of work for the next four and a half weeks. But that's what this about. Setting goals and striving to reach them. Doing things that scare me and trying new things. Well, this fits all those hopes and expectations (and fears). So stay tuned for changes. This blog is officially under construction.

Good luck! I did a lot at first when I started blogging, but then one day I got really frustrated and reached out to a designer. I am so glad I did a few things in the beginning, but also glad I got help. I don't know a whole lot about all of the techy stuff (html codes and so forth) but if you need help with anything I can try to help if it's something I do know. Don't hesitate to ask. :)

I found your blog at MBC. I'm your newest follower! Feel free to check out my blog and maybe even sign up to win one of my fun giveaways!

Yay! Great challenge. I've learned so much and I've really enjoyed making the blog look the way I want it to.

Here's another very helpful site:

Good for you! I had someone do mine. I love it, but every now and then I want a little tweak. (Currently I want to put folks buttons in a slide show. Don't hold your breath...)
