You may have noticed that things look more than a little different here. I am so excited about this new look. I first noticed this theme when it came through my email over at Rita Reviews. I liked it right away but thought it was a bit out of my budget at the time.
I mean I wasn’t looking to spend a couple of hundred dollars on a theme. Especially when I didn’t have this blog anywhere near the place I wanted it to be. So, I let the thought of changing things go and went about my business. It was no big deal. Months went by and I felt like I was falling further and further behind what I wanted to be doing here. I wasn’t sure what was going on.
Then I had that moment at Rita Reviews when I was more than ready to give it all up. I was tired and would come up with excuses as to why I wasn’t getting things done. The truth was I burnt out. Burnt out on all sorts of things. Life in general. It was at that moment I had my epiphany. After a lot of praying and examining everything in my life I sat down and wrote out what I wanted. How I wanted my day to day to look.
Things in both my business and personal lives that I wanted to improve. That I could change. One thing I knew was that the Scribe theme from Restored 316 Designs had stayed in the back of my mind since the moment I saw it. I needed it but again I didn’t want to spend the money. I told myself if I took the time and stopped playing around, actually getting the things I needed to get done. Getting everything moved and organized. Sitting down and pre-writing all of the pages, planning how things would look, and how long it would take me then (and only then) I could buy the theme.
I didn’t think I would accomplish any of it. I figured I would do like I always do and give up. It wouldn’t be a big deal but to be honest getting Storied Conversation in shape was part of my bigger plan. Then in early August I sat down one day, started working, and everything was done. Well it was almost done. By the end of the week it was all done and I was amazed. I had done it.
That meant I could get the new theme. I could do something I wanted to do. Then I set another task for myself before I committed. I needed to be sure. The logo needed to be right. I need to prep and plan my social media as I want to be better at it. guess what? I got all of that done as well. I just sat done and did it. So, I bought the theme and installed it.
Everything has been updated and is looking the way I want it to. It wasn’t difficult at all. There was very little that I changed from the way the theme came. I loved the colors and style. It was designed for authors so books are the inspiration for it. I hope that you will all take the time to check out the pages and all the other little parts. See how much has changed and please be honest about the parts you like and don’t like. Also, just because I am so excited I thought I would do a giveaway for y’all.

I think the new look is awesome. I can’t see a single thing that I don’t like. You did a fabulous job.
Elaine G says
I like the new look. It all looks great
I like the new look it looks nice and clean. When I first came to the blog though the giveaways were not listed on the right hand side of the page I have to click into a story and look for them. Wonder if it is like that for others?

I love the new look and I am looking forward to future posts and giveaways!
I love the new look!
Jonathan W says
The site looks amazing! I think it was well worth it. I just built a site myself for my business, and it doesn’t look this good, mostly because I used a free theme and I’m not up to customizing it to perfection.
Betty S says
The new look is great, easy to navigate
Very attractive new look! The only negative for me is I have to do a lot more scrolling down the page to get to your book reviews – maybe it’s my browser?
Susan Smith says
Your website is so easy to read and navigate with the big letters and light colors.
Carolyn Daley says
