Moved to WordPress!

Well, this is my first post on WordPress. Everything else you see below was imported from Blogger. I am going on a whim with every click and decision I make. Hang in there with me, I promise I’ll get running and posting┬álike normal very soon!

New Design!

I am so excited because I think I’m finally happy with the layout of the blog! Using my new favorite Chevron fabric for our dining room and Picnik, a free design website my friend Sara at Sarandipity showed me, I created the new header. I am thrilled with how it turned out and hope you like it too!

I kept the colors very neutral and the sidebar as clean as possible for easier reading. (Sidenote: to those who still have it, please get rid of your black background with white text! Ouch, my eyes!) I would love for you to click ‘follow’ and follow The Steen Style. Once you do that, you can sign up to get each post delivered to your inbox!

If you’re already reading this in an e-mail, head on over to The Steen Style and check it all out!

Updates galore

So if you are reading this in an e-mail or your Google reader, click on over (lauraandconnersteen.blogspot.com) to check out some of the new features on the blog! Most of the sidebar content is gone and instead, replaced with tabs under our header. There is a longer ‘about me’ section, DIY projects, features from our home and a complete list of blogs I like to read each week. I hope this cleans up the look of the blog as well as makes it load faster.

Once you click to follow this blog, I would love for you to subscribe to receive the posts in your inbox. Under the follow section in the sidebar, enter your e-mail address and you will be set to get each post delivered straight to you!

I’m working on getting a new header and background design – I can’t wait for those changes to happen and will let you know when they are live!

Side note – as of Monday night, I had 92 ‘official’ followers. I know I have more ‘lurkers’ out there who don’t sign up to be a follower but honestly, it makes me cry. At this time last year, I think I had 15. I can’t believe this many people like looking at my blog and seeing what I have to say. I’ve seen ‘The Steen Style’ on several blog rolls other people have and it is very weird and surreal. Thank you very much for your support and love! I am happy you like me and happy you like the content I deliver to you. I am definitely finding the style to my life and this blog!
