A New Look

If you’ve tried to access my site in the last day, you probably got the message that I was busy working on a new look.

Well here it is! ๐Ÿ™‚ I have been working on redesigning some things over the last couple of weeks and put it all together.

You’ll notice my cartoon figure is gone, but no worries, you can find her in a button to put on your own website below. I mentioned a couple of months ago that I was looking to change the feel of my blog and moving away from JUST talking about food/fitness/weight loss.

That’s where my new tagline comes in: Enjoying ALL of life’s indulgences!

I love it and think it is perfect for what I’m looking to do with my blog. Don’t you agree?

There are a few more things I’m working on to bring to you in the future. But the new look is a start and I wanted it up before heading to Fitbloggin’ on Thursday!

In random exciting news, did you guys see that my Birthday DietBet is only one person away from 400?! It starts today, but you can still join! Come get a piece of the almost $8,000 pot!

Also, I will be giving away a prize pack or two of Fitbloggin’ swag to a lucky entrant!

As soon as you’re done reading this post, go check out the Quad City Moms Blog where I’m a part of a great post talking about body image today! I’m pretty proud of what I wrote and really happy that Erin reached out to me!

What do you think of the new look?

  • Love it Brooke! Wanted to thank you for motivating me to join my first Dietbet. I’ve been walking again, cut out the snacking, practicing portion control, and on my way to winning some money I hope!! Thanks for the inspiration!

  • I love the new look! Great job Brooke!

  • When I first come to the page, the header at the top seems HUGE. The post doesn’t start until about midway on my screen. And, perhaps because it is huge, the text (Brooke: Not On a Diet and Enjoying ALL of Life’s Indulgences) is a little blurry. (I am using a 27″ monitor at 1920 x 1080 resolution FWIW). You might want to scale it back a little smaller.

    I like how the header vanishes when you scroll the post.

    But, when I start reading the post, the font seems larger than it was before and it seems like I have to do much more scrolling to read your post. I would prefer not to have to scroll so much.

  • Love the new look, friend! I’m always a fan of two-column layouts. ๐Ÿ™‚

    I LOVE the new look but I’m really bummed that full posts are longer available in a reader. I understand why bloggers do it but honestly, I’m more likely to unsubscribe and stop reading than I am to click through to read the post. And I know I’m not alone in that. Please reconsider, Brooke!

    • Oops! I forgot to switch that when I changed things. Thanks for the heads up!

        Oh PHEW!! Thanks ๐Ÿ™‚

    Love the new look!
