Notice Anything Different?!?!

Best Blogger Tips
 Did you notice it? A new look?!?! Well if you have been around here for any amount of time you know that I have changed my blog design (old design above) a few times with none of them being anything I liked let alone loved!! So instead of tinkering around anymore and hating every design I come up with, I called in the Pro's!!

Strosgirls Designs helped me turn the picture at the top- blah, boring and ugly- into the cute, organized and clean looking design I have now!! First I want to share a few new features with you that the Strosgirls Designs created for me. The drop down menu along the top- this one actually works!! I had one a few months ago but after Internet Explorer readers started emailing me stating that they were unable to use the menu I had to take it down. So after adding a few main topics and then some easy drop down choices, my new menu works perfectly and has helped to clean up my side bars- less clutter means easier use for you!!

Second I am in love with the lady holding the shopping bags (above)! Isn't she so cute!! I absolutely love the color scheme, it flows very well together and all matches, which I love! I also added the "like" button for Facebook to each post, making it easier for you to show how much you like each post with out having to leave my blog! You can also share any post with Stumble, Facebook, Twitter, Digg, etc with the sharing buttons along the bottom of each post. So tell me what you think? I am still tinkering around with moving some things around, but for the most part the blog is exactly as I wanted! So thank you again Strosgirls Designs in helping me re-design the blog!

Here is some additional information about Strosgirls Designs!!
My name is Angie and I am the owner of Strosgirl’s Designs. Strosgirl’s Designs started on a fluke. I was designing digital scrapbook kits and elements and I wanted to design my own blog. From what started as changing my blog layout every other week with a background image to totally redoing a blog is now Strosgirl’s Designs. It is a way to let my creative juices go. I love creating things I just wish I was good creating things for my condo as I am for mine or someone else’s blog. HA!!!

You may ask why Strosgirl’s Designs for a name? Well if you are not a baseball fan then you might not know. I grew up in Houston, Texas (now live in Kentucky) as a HUGE Houston Astros fan. I still am a fan of theirs still living in Kentucky. I am also a certified athletic trainer and I wanted something sports related, hence, the name of my blog packages: walk, single, double, triple, homerun.
I work some crazy hours while being an athletic trainer but it also allows me to spend more time designing blogs for you the customer. I design for blogger and wordpress. I love designing blogs because even though I am designing the blog it is 100% a representation of the owner of the blog. If I have to make 50 revisions to get exactly what you want then I will. You are the customer and the owner and you are the one who will have to use this blog on a daily basis.
