My new-look blog

This is just a quickie to shout out Misha Gericke and The Golden Eagle.

I won the vote for Best Writing/Inspirational Blogger in Misha's inaugural Paying Forward Awards. (Thank you so much to whoever nominated and voted for me.)

My prize was a design from The Golden Eagle, who has - with a lot of patience - provided me with the fantastic banner above.

Thank you both for giving me such a great prize! Please go and check out their blogs - they're both brilliant.

  2. Well I agree completely with Elizabeth. I feel a little Forrest Gumpish right now: Love the new look and how it fits with your book and congratulations on a well-deserved recognition. And that's all I have to say about that.

  15. Congratulations, and I like the new look of the blog! It's good to change things; it's kind of like getting a new journal to write in, because it can be inspiring, in a way. On the other hand, I've had the same design on my blog for three years, but that's mainly because I don't know much about how to change it.

  17. Hi Annalisa .. I love the new look - it's clean and clear ... then the banner - what a great spread ... wake up, eat, write, sleep .... perhaps you should have put exercise in there - that essential element that you're so good at.

    Congratulations on winning Misha's award ...

    Kudos to Golden Eagle - she's one talented young lady, and to Misha .. for her Paying It Forward award ..

    Cheers Hilary

  18. Okay, I'm going to cheat now, and comment to you all - thank you!

    Linda - professional? Oooh I like that :-)

    Neurotic - the problem is changing to something you don't like and forgetting where you found the things you did like! I spent ages going round in circles especially with the fonts!

    Hilary - exercise? Not EVERY day :-) Yes, Golden Eagle and Misha are wonderful people, and they deserve the shout out!
