More Tweaking Today

You have likely noticed a bit of tweaking of this blog's elements today. A lot of the tweaks have been behind the scenes and a few are noticeable, both necessary. I've tried to get the first blog post above the fold as one reader suggested but even with the tweaking it just won't work. There is still a slight scroll to get to the first post however I feel the welcome and canning messages are necessary and need to be where readers can easily see them. I'm really liking the toned done effect I'm getting with pink still on the blog but less prominent. I hope you like the effect. You will notice I changed the blog post and sidebar backgrounds to shades of grey in keeping with the the layout design. So that took a lot of pink away. The pale grey should give a nice background for the food pictures while making it a bit easier to read than a white background.

Please stay tuned for today's food related post.

Thank-you so much for your feedback Wanda. I really do appreciate it. I'm so glad you like the colours as well. I really wanted a bit of a "not so much pink in your face look" so I am pleased to hear I'm achieving that.

Take care :)
