It’s My Birthday! Here Is My Gift To You Guys!- OR- We All Hate Change So Please Don’t Hate Me For Giving The Blog A Total Overhaul (At 4 a.m. this morning).

written by M.E. Evans September 2, 2013

I was up until four a.m. last night making changes to this blog. I wanted it to be more reader-friendly for all of you. I hope that I succeeded in doing that. It should be easier to navigate now and by the end of the week you should be able to easily find a plethora of information on moving, studying, or visiting Italy.  I’m currently watching endless CSS videos on YouTube to figure out how to KILL THE PINK BUBBLES AT THE TOP OF THIS PAGE. If you have any suggestions I would be so stoked to hear them. The new header was my husband’s idea. This is kind of what my life looks like anyways so it’s not far-fetched. The only thing that could make it more realistic is if Oliver was peeing on a child in the background (yes, he does that.) or if I crashed the bike into a curb and tumble down the street (this happens frequently). I know everything is new but I hope in a few days you’ll get used to it and you’ll love it. Tell me what you want to see or read and I’ll work it in to the new design. If you want you can pass the blog along to your friends. Tanti Baci and all that.

Happy birthday! I’m loving the new design so far and innate CSS. I am just not techie I guess. It is a very clean design which makes it easy to read and easy on the eyes.

Oops….that should say I hate CSS! 🙂 Don’t worry, I’m sure the more you play with it and make it your own, the more you’ll love it.

Happy Birthday! Hope you’re having a great day!! I like the new design, but I may be too old to be the best judge of these things. Anyway, since it’s your birthday, stop reading this and go out and do something fun!

Thank you Joe! You’re never too old for anything. At least, as I keep going up in the 30’s I like to tell myself that. 🙂 I’m landlocked at home until tonight where I’ll be meeting friends for debauchery and pizza.

Happy Birthday! Honestly, I didn’t even notice the pink bubbles until I read what you wrote and scrolled back up so shh, don’t tell anyone and maybe they’ll be as unobservant as me! Like the new layout, it looks good 🙂

Happy birthday to my favorite bloggist! (Is it bloggist? Or blogger? I like bloggist, blogger makes me think of a frog getting flattened in traffic.)

I absolutely LOVE the new set up and your photos are gorgeous! By the way, you *look* like a native Italian, I think you’re assimilating 😉
