I finally did it. I finally changed the theme on my blog. I had gotten a theme I had gotten from Pretty Darn Cute Designs, but couldn’t bring myself to go through all the work of setting it up. (I actually do Not earn a commission from them for this. I just like them.). It’s called Travel Pretty, and is designed for Travel Blogs, but I really liked the look and decided I wanted to try it. Over the weekend I started working on updating my blog with the new theme. I’m not finished yet, but I am already Loving it. So here I am showing off the new look.
I love the cool colors options in this theme, and I love the kitty paws graphic I was able to insert into the header. It is not a background image, but an insert, and alternatively. I could have put an ad in the same spot. I also really like the fact that the blog title is larger and not squished to the top any more.
And I really like the brand new slider that has much narrower images than my previous one and fits all the way across the page. I hope you like it. I kept all my sweet kitty pics from my Menagerie slider, but cropped them. Click the pics to see their stories. Here is my sweet Raja boy.
And Zoe’s picture.
And Max Boy.
And my Grand Kitty, Nuggles.
I have been playing around with the placement of all the widgets and will probably play some more. I haven’t put anything in the footer area yet, but am considering it. I decided to take out the Facebook feed, it may put it back. There are some glitches with image size which I haven’t yet figured out. You can see what I mean on this page. The new size is the larger image, but for some reason the update is taking irregularly. Next stop tech support. I am also still looking through all the instructions for other stuff I can do with this theme, and may make even more changes. But this is it what I have accomplished so far.
Zoe and Raja are thankful Mommy managed to get their footprints on the blog and for a nice warm fireplace and fresh cat grass.
I hope you like the new look. I am really liking it so far. Raja and Zoe tell me they like it too. They particularly like their paw prints.
