Pimpin' My Blog!

Merry Meet Family and Friends!

I have been trying forever to update the appearance of my blog and it's been so friggin' frustrating. I love the look of some of my ff's (Favorite Followers) blogs and wondered how I could achieve a similar appearance. Aside from the creativity of their writers, their blogs say so much about them! I visited some of the sites that have blog templates and they are absolutely beautiful! Yet, each time I try to incorporate them into my own, I lose my favorite thing! My Favorite Followers!!!!

I was reading my friend Dennis's blog this morning :::cough, cough::: "SpottedWolfWisdom" and absolutely loved the idea of incorporating my photography into my blog. Being technically challenged, I was just about to write Dennis to find out how to do it, when much to my delight, I discovered it for myself!

I took this photo a day or two ago of this beautiful rose with the Goddess's image in the background! I thought it expressed the theme for my blog perfectly! It's still a work in progress, but I would appreciate your comments and suggestions!

In Darkness, Light!

Hi Carol,

This was one of those rare freaky photo ops.

I was taking a picture of the rose and the Goddess was staring down from my living room window. It's actually a planter.

Ray loves it too! We're going to frame it!

It's absolutely beautiful!

Rare freaky photo ops are sometimes the best, aren't they?

Tracy said...

Thanks Rayden!

They are the best....especially when you just happen to have a camera handy at the time! :)

Hi Tracy,

Congratulations. :-)

This is nice. I see a profile view of the Goddess to the right. Did you arrange it that way? If so you could add one to the left also, in order to form a triple Goddess view.
May I suggest you separate the text from the picture. I mean putting the text out of the picture as a headline to your blog. Also try reducing the picture by about 75%. Play with it and see what fits best.
My feeling is that the picture is too big.
New Moon Blessings

Hi Arie,

Thanks for your suggestions! I actually didn't arrange it that way. I didn't use any photo software at all to get the image. While I was photographing the rose, I realized I had also caught the image of the Goddess planter in the shot.

I'm going to try to tweak the image on the blog to see what I might be able to do with it.

Again! Thank you!
