We have a WINNER!!
I want to thank everyone for the terrific feedback to the first giveaway hosted on my blog. The "Welcome to my Blog Giveaway" was a huge success, with 184 entries and a vast array of suggestions, comments and critique. From these words I discovered that although the site was easy to navigate, the navigation buttons were too dark, so I have lightened them. I learned that although I spell words correctly, I sometimes use the wrong variation of the word...so "peaked" has now become "piqued" and many other grammatically incorrect woes have been addressed (although I am uncertain I will ever be able to grasp the concept of one space behind a period instead of the two as taught back in high school typing class. It's now a habit and although I am trying to break it, don't place any bets).
Not everyone was crazy about my blog design, and although I still love that adorable, whimsical bird (for those of you just tuning in, it was the same design as my blog button), I have opted to make the design more personal. The new header is actually inspired from a photograph I took one day while shooting photos of old cars. There's a story behind it and more photos in the collection, but that is another post and not at all about what you came here to find out! So on with the show, so to speak!
The winner, who has already been notified and responded, was chosen by random.org. The winning number was 105......FALON!!! Congratulations Falon!
Be certain to check back soon as another giveaway is in the works! I will continue to fine tune things here, so don't be surprised if it's a different view when you visit next. Be sure to sign up for my newsletter (another great suggestion) so that you are "in-the-know" as to when new content has been posted!!
Thanks again and Happy Blogging!
