Blog Renovation

I really had a hard time deciding what I wanted my image to look like when I was starting a blog. You may say why did you change your layout so quickly? I wasn't very familiar with Blogger and how to use it at the time. Now that I am more comfortable with it, I wanted to try again. I didn't feel that it was very custom, original or exciting. I wanted something more fun and cohesive. What do you think of my new blog look? Should I go back to the original? Is there something you would change still? Would completely redo it again? I would love your opinion!



Here is the rundown of what I changed:

I got the background from Kinzie's Kreations!
I got the banner from Cutest Blog on the Block and tweaked the color a bit.
I added my new title in Photoshop.
I changed the columns and moved the gadgets to the left side instead of right.
I changed the post title font and size.
I changed the post font. (this is the only thing I'm still unsure about)
I also added an about me tab so be sure to check that out if you don't know me or want to know more about me!
There were a few more font and color changes.
Overall I think it made a HUGE difference. Do you?

Another post to follow later today :) so be sure to check back in!

P.S. do any of you bloggers know how to create a custom signature at the bottom?
