Ordinarily, I don’t visit my blog the way a reader might, but today I happened to do so and was more than a little bit surprised to see that my lovely quilty blog header was gone and all that was there was the NABLOMO participant badge. Weird. Don’t know where it went, but decided this was a good opportunity for a change of theme and a new header.
Not sure I’m crazy about the new theme, seeing all of the stuff in the sidebar in CAPS seems wrong. But, I’ll try it. And as I said, I don’t actually look at it that way much anyway…and most of you probably read my blog through a Reader anyway, so you might not notice it yourselves.
Speaking of Blog Readers, for the last little while I’ve been browsing through blogs via Google Reader, but haven’t really had time to actually COMMENT except for rare occasions. I feel like I’m missing something in the whole blog-conversation and promise that y’all will actually see me comment on your blogs again as much as I can. And maybe even actually RESPOND to comments made on my blog. I do get them (and love it when I do, please Comment! It makes me feel less self-conscious about blabbing…).
In other bloggy-news, my friend Carla is having a blog contest. The deal is, you have to put a link to her blog on your blog in order to sign up. Frankly, I think that is WRONG, because it lessens MY chances of winning the prize, but oh well. I’m game.
So, click the image, go see her really cool freeform crochet scarves, and consider signing up yourself!
I noticed this morning that I’m approaching 600 published posts, I htink it might be time for a blog contest of my own to celebrate! Stay tuned, I’ll think of something….

I like the new format and header! I think a HUGE gift certificate from Knots and Bolts would be a terrific blog price. 🙂

prize – not price.
I’m guilty of reading without comment when I get busy or behind on my blog reading too. I thought your other header was more colorful but this is nice too.
I try and comment if I feel that I have something to add or its an interesting post but must admit to being lazy at times, doesn’t mean that I don’t enjoy reading 🙂 Blog looks good- so much tidier than mine!!
Oh my!! Your blog must have been hacked? I’m guessing the NAMBOMO has to do with what I am thinking it does?? Big Yuck! be sure to contact wordpress so they may look into it.
I want to enter your contest, too. Thanks for entering mine, btw! Hugs, carla
I e-mailed Carla privately, but wanted to respond on the blog, too: the NABLOPOMO image that I was referring to was an image that did appear on my blog in the sidebar — it stands for National Blog Posting Month — that was the deal I did last November where I posted every day without fail.
I don’t really suspect hacking, more likely a glitch of some kind.
I like the new format………. the quilt really pops it!!! and by the way….. I’m going to win carla’s giveaway LOL
