Time for Blog Adjustments

In short:  same blog, different look.  I spent way too much time yesterday pretending that I understand html code.  (I don't.) 

I still need to label many of the older posts, so they will show up under the tabs.  The blog hops page needs work, but it's going to take me a while year to figure out how to line the buttons up nicely.  I want to resize my "Thankful thought" and signature line.  I'd like to redesign my blog button and favicon.  I want to update my profile.  I might even change some of the days that I post, or not follow as strict of a schedule as I have for the past year.  We'll see.  I'll let you know as soon as I decide. 

In the meantime, take a look around.  What do you think?  If you find any broken links or things that otherwise don't work, please let me know.  (And if you know how to fix the problem, all the better.)


Thanks for google search, and bloggers who have written tutorials about blogging.

  1. I already like it better. It loads a lot faster than the previous one. I'm glad you kept the family photo. I've always liked it. I'm off to look around...

  2. Wow! Very nice look. I know it took a ton of work and frustration but perseverance always pays off and this time it did for sure. Nice job. I like your button, that's on my list of things to do.

  3. I think it is looking great. It seemed to struggle loading and sizing the family photo in the sidebar when I change pages but it does size and I don't know what is causing the issue...

    1. Hmm, I see what you mean about the sizing issue, but I don't know what is causing the problem, either. I'll have to puzzle on that a bit. I didn't actually change anything about the photo from the old blog design to the new, so I'm not sure how to make it better. I might not get it fixed soon, but I'll try to figure it out. Thanks for the feedback.

  4. An ambitious project for sure! I wouldn't even know where to begin a remodel of my blog.

    I like the tabs at the top.

It's #RootsTech Giveaway Time!

In February of 2018, not knowing exactly what to expect, I attended RootsTech for the first time. What I learned is that RootsTech has something for everyone, from the most beginner of beginners to professional DNA genealogists. If you are interested in your own family story, come to RootsTech! RootsTech offers over 300 classes, amazing keynote speakers, an Expo Hall packed with all sorts of vendors, and evening cultural events. 

After an enjoyable experience in 2018, I returned in 2019, and even got my husband, John, to come one of the days to hear Saroo Brierley give a keynote address. 

Speaking of keynote addresses, this week RootsTech just announced that one of the speakers for 2020 will be David Hume Kennerly, a Pulitzer Prize winning photographer. I can't wait to hear his story!

RootsTech 2020 will celebrate its 10th anniversary, and is bound to be the best one yet! I have been delighted to be accepted as an official RootsTech ambassador. One of the perks is that I received a c…

Ten Things of Thankful: Nearly Christmas Edition

This is a busy time of year, and though it isn't as busy for me as it has been in past years, my to-do list still seems longer than the hours in the days. However, I find that when I spend time to focus on the reason for the season, I can feel the joy of Christmas and the tasks-at-hand fall back into their proper place. This week I had the opportunity to attend some wonderful events, and I'd love to take you along for a virtual tour:

Let's start at the Conference Center on Temple Square in Salt Lake City, Utah, last Friday night. The Tabernacle Choir joined with the Orchestra at Temple Square and the Bells on Temple Square, along with dancers and guest artists Kelli O'Hara and Richard Thomas, to present a spectacular Christmas concert. Although I couldn't record any of the performance, the following 2-minute video from the church provides an overview:




The last time John and I had attended a Christmas concert by the Tabernacle Choir, they were still holding those conc…

Ten Things of Thankful: So Long, October!

Although the number of good moments in October outnumbered the sad, I'm still thankful it is now November!

November brings:
1. a time change. I'm thankful that mornings will be lighter earlier.
2. John's birthday. I'm thankful for him, and love thinking of ways to make his day special.
3. Drexel's birthday. He will be 7 years old this month. Time passes so quickly! I'm thankful for him; he's a good dog. 
4. Thanksgiving. I'm thankful we have a designated day to remember to be thankful.
5. Oldest granddaughter's birthday. She will also be 7 this month. Time passes so quickly! I'm thankful for her; she's a sweet girl.

Other things I'm thankful for this week:
6. Books. I read Educated  and started It's All Relative. Educated is thought-provoking on many levels. I'm looking forward to finishing It's All Relative; I started it in the Baker City Public Library while waiting for our van to be repaired. My copy from Amazon should arrive late…
