For Bloggiesta I mainly focused on the appearance of my blog. I created a page for my archived posts and labels, fiddled with the background and added social icons to match. I also created title banners for each of my gadgets on my sidebar. I then realized I didn’t like them. For some reason they looked messy and drew away from my post content. I then looked at my sidebar itself, after moving previous posts to a separate page I only had a search bar, currently reading gadget and recent posts. All of which I could do without. Then I read this article and decided to remove it completely and have She is too fond of books focus on my content, that is really what I want people to see, not to be distracted by my sidebar. After reading the article I realized I had put everything I needed into a page. I deleted the entirety of said sidebar except the social Media icons, I depleted my sidebar width (or at least as far as blogger would allow me) and extended the width of my blog. I’m quite pleased with it and think it has a more streamline approach. One thing I am annoyed with is the white borders around the pictures in my blog posts, does anyone know how to get rid of that? Even though I had to backtrack a little, I’m satisfied with what I accomplished. If you participated in Bloggiesta what did you accomplish?
