How Do You Like The New Look???

I need some feedback on how you like the new look. Is it too hard to read? Did you like the old simpler version better? I did most of my tinkering with the background and colors while I was hopped up on goofballs last night after everyone else had gone to bed.

I also need your help. Please help to make my blog the only blog with nutritional value - it helps to feed my kids. Sorry I stole that line from an interview with he CEO of Dr. Pepper, but it was too funny to let die on the business report on talk radio.

In that vein (or is it vane?)I have also added a couple of addish banners to my website. The one at the top is for Swagbucks. I just love Swagbucks! They are basically a search engine where you can get rewarded for searching like you would on google. I don't feel like the search is as robust as google, but I can always go to google and google to my hearts content.

Right now it takes about 45 Swagbucks to get a $5 Amazon gift card. I downloaded the toolbar and saved it as my default search engine and was able to earn about 65 in a month of use. I'm planning on saving mine up until the end of the year and use it for Christmas shopping next year. When you sign up with them you get 3 free Swagbucks to start. If you sign up through my link, I will get a swagbuck every time you do. You can invite friends or blog readers if you wish and you will get a swag buck every time they earn one as well.

I have also added a search box for Amazon. If you are considering buying something from Amazon anyway, would you consider searching for it through my site? Once you are on the Amazon site, you can browse to your heart's content and I will get credit for anything you buy that day.

Finally, if you need to book travel, you can click on my vacation banner to the right. When you are their click on book travel and you will be taken to my website where you can search for hotels, airfare, cruises and the like. This site pulls from the same places that the big travel websites all pull from . The only difference is that I get roughly a 5 -10% commission on anything you book other than airfare.

Thanks for your support of my Half-Assedness


  1. I like the new look and it is easy to read. the light print really stands out against the dark background!
    Good luck in your money-making ventures. We cold all use some extra cash these days!

  2. Kaycee, I really like the new look. My only problem is it takes a while for the background to load up, and you can't read the light writing until the black comes up behind it. But, hey, it's worth the wait! Cheers!

  3. Interesting. I didn't have that problem on my laptop, but the same thing happened on the office computer today. May have to explore some other options. Thanks for the heads up!

  4. LOVE the new look! Sorry it took me a while to pop by. Good luck with the Bible reading!
