Oh Things, they are achangin'!

Well the most notable thing that has changed is the look...what do you think? I love the purple! And the girls up there drinking their coffee & having some girl talk? LOVE IT!! I love that it is so simple!! Oh and the navi bar accross the top! I love that too!

What else is changing? Well, when I host a giveaway, now you fill out a form that includes your mailing address so when you win, I already have. Don't worry, I'm not going to sell your info, or anything nefarious like that. You will still be notified by mail, and the winners will still be posted here.

And of course theres Tasty Tuesday. I'm really enjoying searching the web for those easy, inexpensive dinner recipes and when I find one, sharing!

I'm just now getting back into my reading 'groove' it seems. I think I might have been depressed after getting out of the hospital & losing my job. I just wanted to watch tv. Worse-reruns. Of shows that I've already seen and almost know by heart. But like I said I'm getting back into my reading groove, blogging groove, woohoo! Thanks for baring with me through the tough times!

I like the new look (and I'm usually not a lover of purple). It's very easy on the eyes. I have a question: I've noticed more people using the form for giveaway entries. How do you add it to your giveaway? The form, I mean. I'm such a 'non-technical' person. *sigh*

Thanks Mary! I used to love purple, then not so much, and now, well, like everything else in my life, I'm loving it again! Now onto the form. It took me about 2 hours last night, trying to figure it out and making the changes I wanted! Mostly because I'm not a technical person either. This stuff does not come easy! I just pust my way through...You create it using Google Documents and they supply the direct link for you to use. I actually wanted to have it in the post (not be redirected to the form) but I could NOT figure out how they do add it directly to their posts! If anyone knows and would like to share...Please do! LOL!!

Linda, Girl, those buttons came with the layout! I just had to add my links and change the words to what I wanted them to be! Easy Peasy! I am not technical at all, but if you need help with anything, let me know and if I can help, you know I will!
