New Year, New Blog Design

We are just about one month into 2010 and with the new year comes a new design for my blog.  If you read my posts through a feed reader, be sure to stop by for a visit and see the new look.  My previous design had an Asian theme, but I went for a more “clean” design for this year.  I plan to update my design each year, so who knows what will happen next year.

With this new design, I have more space, so here is what you’ll find on my sidebars now

  • my cartoon avatar — looks very much like me if I can say so myself!
  • connect w/ me – find me @ Ancestry, Footnote, Twitter, my “normal” family site & my genealogy database
  • RSS feed of ALL my blog posts — I have multiple blogs, so created a feed to show my posts from across them all
  • My USGenWeb site – I administer 6 sites in the USGenWeb project.  Maybe  you have research in these areas?
  • Genealogy Tweets – see real-time view of genealogy tweets on Twitter
  • Featured Video – i’ll try to regularly rotate a genealogy-related video

There is some quirkiness going on; for example, some of my embedded videos and pics are wider than the space allocated for blog posts, but I’ll fix that later.

Hope you like the new look.  And remember, my blog is mobile phone compatible, so don’t be shy to visit me on your smartphone. 🙂

    Nice, clean look!

    Looks fantastic. I’m doing a bit of remodeling myself so I know how much work this can be. I might need to call on you for some tips!

    Thanks both of you! Kathryn, the beauty of WordPress was that once I found a theme I liked, I was able to redo my site in less than an hour. It really doesn’t get much better than that! I am of course, happy to try and answer any questions. 🙂
