Got the layout all figured out.. finally!

For a while now, I have been looking for the perfect layout. I find that a layout is one of the most important things about your blog because it is the readers first impression about your blog & can also reflect your style. Some of the things that I look for in a layout are neatness, clean lines, bold titles, colours that complement each other, & overall appearance. I'm glad to say that I have finally found all of those things in a layout after a really long time. It's also made quite the impression on people who visit my blog because I have received tons of compliments, which I'd like to thank everyone for.

I thought I'll take you on a little tour of all the layouts that I've had in the past 1 and a 1/2 weeks.

Layout #1: Birdie's Secret Garden by Gisele Jaquenod I really liked the colour palette, the comments section, & pretty much everything besides the birdie, flowers, & grass on top. Visit Gisele Jaquenod's website & browse around her free blog templates or her custom blog & web designs. I love some of the custom designs that she's done.. So talented!

Layout #2: Grunge Theme by Anshul Dudeja
Last week I finally decided to change my layout. I really liked the drop down ribbons & the way the date showed up on this one, but there was still something off. I couldn't quite figure out what that something was till I found...

Layout #3: Aaah Perfection! (haha, kidding. It's actually called..) Template Setembro by Templates Novo Blogger

I love the slider, I love the tabs on top. I love the way all the posts show up on the home page. Love the way the most recent post shows up (bolded title with a different coloured background). Love the wide sidebar. Love the way the quoted text shows up in my posts. Okay, so you get the point.. I love it!

With my layout all figured out I can now resume blogging. Okay, so I still have to make a few minor changes, but that doesn't have to stop me. Point is, when I open my blog now it feels like I belong here & I look forward to blogging more now. Funny how a layout can do that. Or maybe I'm just weird. But anywho, I'm excited about my new layout & upcoming posts. Hope you are too!
