Makeover Revealed

Dear Blog Readers,

Check out the new look for Savvy Verse & Wit. I had a great collaborative experience with Doodlebug Designs.

Judi at Doodlebug Designs is fantastic, very hands on, and creative. I just hope my inexperience with HTML and other design elements didn't drive her too batty.

I'm excited about my new navigation bar and the links to my Interviews, Awards, and the coming soon "Poetry: Verse Reviewers" page.

Check out this fantastic blog button she made as well:

Savvy Verse and Wit


Just a quick note that if you don't have Lucida Calligraphy font on your system, you may have to download it to see the headers and navigation bar as they were designed to look; otherwise, the font will be plain. I'm not sure the reasoning for this, but I discovered this when I was viewing my new blog look at work and discovered that it looked wrong.

Feel free to drop me a note about what you think and if I'm missing any of those loved elements I had on here that may have disappeared in the transition.

Don't forget my giveaways:

I can't see anything. I'll have to downlaod the font which I'll do at home. But the color combinations is fab.

Looks really great Serena! I love the colors. Did you buy your own blog domain and from where if you did? I'm really thinking of getting my own too.

The makeover looks great! You made several subtle changes and improvements to navigation. I knew I was in the right place, just with a little more jazz!
