Courtney Reads A Lot Has A New Look

Saturday, July 5, 2014 12:00 AM
With my two year blogoversary approaching, I figured it was just the right time for a new blog design. And let me tell you, I love this design so much! I am just so excited for this new look! Let me show my excitement through a bunch of unrelated gifs! Because how else could I possibly express my feelings?


Stephanie from New Chapter Designs did such an amazing job! I was so vague with my requests, but it was like she knew exactly what I was looking for! Thanks so much, Steph! I asked for cats because I love cats and they make everything better, and I asked for books because, well, obviously this is a book blog. And, that header just meets my every expectation!

And I have a new button! Also with cats and books! I can hardly contain the excitement!

Currently, I am going through and painstakingly changing the html for each post, since blogger decided to add a bunch of useless html to my review posts and my review posts are in two different fonts. Yay! Probably because I copy and paste my book synopses and quotes in from Goodreads, and that just is too much for blogger and it changes fonts in all sorts of whacky ways. I got through a few reviews and made them look nicer, but it's going to take forever! But it will be so worth it in the long run! 


I now have social media icons for Pinterest, Instagram and Google+, so feel free to follow me on any of the above and I will follow back! I've been meaning to add them for some time, and I'm thrilled they're finally up. As you can tell, I freak out about the little things and get overly excited!


So, if you've made it this far in my post, I thank you for putting up with my unintelligible babbling and all of the gifs! You are truly amazing!

  2. Loving the new look, Courtney! I adored your previous design too, but this is far more minimalist and so striking in the color choices. I definitely need to work on changing my blog look this summer as well, but I'm looooving yours!:)
