Time for a change

I am not a big fan of blog headers undergoing changes, as I for one associate a certain look with a certain blog.

But mine has been the same now since it started in February 2008, and I am ready for a change finally. I have also been waiting for the perfect picture to illustrate where I live now and I think this comes close.

I have changed up my colour scheme and made a few font changes. I myself have noticed that as each years passes smaller fonts get harder to read, so I have enlarged everything a little for added comfort!

So there you have it, a new look that I can guarantee will be staying awhile!

Like the new look. As an Ex Pat, though I will always call myself English (even after ten years) I often pop in and read your words. Like you I try and educate the colonials with my Sunday UK blog (pop over and have a read if you get the chance) Plus my book which is doing well, helps somewhat.

Thanks for keeping the flag flying.

Sarah;

I love your new look. The picture is gorgeous!
I myself love change and I enjoy changing things up.

(ahem ahem cough cough) I know I'm one of the worst culprits on changing the look of things over on my page. But it is one of the few things in life that CAN be changed easily! Meanwhile, I love your new look, not so different but why not use AWARD WINNING PHOTOGRAPHY when you can???

Pam, now did I name names! ;-)

Stacy at Exceedingly Mundane said...

Wonderful shot and it makes a terrific blog header :)

Daryl said...

I dont take to visual change easily so I understand. But that is such a good shot & ever since you shared that it had gotten an award I thought you should use it as your header.

Nice.

I almost clicked the page shut, since I thought I had the wrong blog....but I'm glad I didn't !
Love that sky and cloud photo, it looks so itimidating, yet so beautiful.
I love your new look, hmmm I need to think of bigger font too.
Good work, Sarah!

Jenny said...

I like the new colors. And I can't think of a situation where I would complain about a larger font :)

Gaelyn said...

Change can be a good thing. I like the new look. And isn't that one of the photos you got a ribbon for?

Kay said...

I love it! I'm all for big fonts as you've probably noticed from my blog. That cloud photo of yours is my favorite. I think. I have so many favorites of yours.

Vickie said...

It looks very spiffy!

Jill of All Trades said...

I like. Looks like home to me.

Great new header and thanks for the bigger font. I also think that a blog should have a certain look and feel but I also believe that if the blogger thinks its time for a change then its time to change!!

Lovely!

Glad that you seem to be feeling okay.

Missy said...

Just catching up on your blog. I hope you tooth is feeling better. Your photos are amazing. I love the ferris wheeel and this cloud photo is really great. Never seen the sky quite like that here in Georgia. I like tha new look!

Lynn said...

Beautiful! I love the font and everything else looks great too.

Bella Foxx said...

I borrowed your idea and enlarged the font on my blog too. It does makes things a little more 'comfortable'.

And the new look is fab!

Great photo, and nice re-design.

The new header is gorgeous. That big sky and those clouds - definitely representative of OK.

That's quite a dramatic photo. I think its highly appropriate. I vote yes.
