Sarah's Makeover


I just knew it! I just knew one thing would lead to another...and I am supposed to be packing, baking, shopping, cleaning, taking the car to be fixed and generally getting ready for a week's camping trip.

But oh no, I have to go and join the 31 Day Better Blog Challenge. So that leads to asking for feedback and blow me...I get it! Carolyn has to go and say that she didn't like the side bar of my blog...she says it is too cluttered. But instead of saying...whateva...what does Carolyn know about anything...talk to the hand... I have to go and look at other templates (I must say that at this stage I have no intention of moving to another blogging platform - that may come at another stage). Now I'm all in a tizz.

So what to do? Do I change templates? If so, change to which one?

Or do I de-clutter my sidebar? What should I remove? I am extremely loath to remove anything.

Any feedback or suggestions are gratefully received but not until I hit the road and cannot be contacted!

Very good news - hot off the press - for Carolyn's benefit. Have just been offered use of a caravan at Wanaka, so will have most my creature comforts after all (including Internet cafe just down the road). Thank goodness for that!

have a great time sarah - you deserve a break! I highly recommend lake Hawea (just up the rd) to you - one of my fav lakes and not as windy as Wanaka - it also has a really good tennis court.
I like the side bar by the way as I find it easy to hop around the blog that way - but usually carolyn knows best about these things so perhaps there is another easy way to hop about easily that I haven't spotted yet?

I think you are both right. Whilst I do not want to change the sidebar, I think I need to change the template that allows me to utilize the wasted space I have on this current template. I'll have to get you to help me choose a new template.

yes i see Carolyns point about it not utilising the full space - it only uses 1/3 of it. I like the colours - but if you spread out a bit more it will look less cluttered.
