I am so excited to be part of a very unique blog hop. Gail @My Repurposed Life and MeganDVD @ Beauty in the Attempt are hosting “The Bold and the Beautiful-your blog reviewed”.
Please take a look around my blog, check out the layout, pages, buttons,  sidebar and gadgets. I would love for you to gently critique my blog. I’m hoping you will leave me some positive feedback about my blog. It would be great if you could give me constructive criticism but be sure to tell me what you like about my blog too! Do you like my pictures? Does my blog load quickly for you? How about the font?  All tips and tidbits welcome!
You are welcome to join the party, it starts Thursday night and is open for a week.



  1. I like this idea. Overall, you blog is pleasing. I think I like having all of the business at the bottom of the post. Your sidebars are clean. I find the clouds to be distracting, showing through the reading. Your header does not seam to fit with the background. Your pictures are clear and informative.

  2. I'm glad you like the brownie recipe. I'm also glad you made it your own by tweaking it. I love that about cooking and sharing ideas. Happy Blogging!

  3. Hello my dear! I am thrilled that you linked up to our little blog hop. I have never seen the "business" all be at the bottom...but for some reason it works for your little world. It is a parody of your dreams among the clouds....and then the realities of the day to day world at the bottom. I REALLY think that is a neat concept. My gentle suggestion is to keep the clouds, but if you could block out the pattern amid your posts, text, and pictures...I think it would be beneficial to all your followers. I find the clouds end up competing with the posts...but with that being said..I really like the feeling you are trying to set within your blog corner.

    Hope to hear from you and see more of you soon. Oh...and I hope that your comments are set with your email. I heart being able to reply to my bloggers, and so many are no-reply. :(

    Let me know if Gail & I can be any help in your virtual playground.

    I hope this is the beginning of more than just a linky...but maybe even a friendship. :)


  4. Tru--Thanks so much for linking up!
    Your page loads quickly, The clouds are a little difficult (transparency) Although I love the overall theme of your blog. I like the tag line on your header a lot!
    I would love to see an "about me" with a picture. Helps your visitors to identify with you. I wish you would use your whole name :) Even though I know it, your visitors don't.

    Also would love to see some kind of "fav" pics or something. It would help entice your vistors deeper into your blog.
    So glad your links open in a new window! ;)
    You might want to consider having more posts visible per page so that your visitors don't have to click "older posts" to see more. It's all about keeping the visitor on the page! (blog)

    Great blog!
    take care!

  5. Hi Tru, I'm stopping by from the blog hop too! I think this was a great idea! It's neat that we can set up our blog to what fits us. The balance is that we want to keep our readers comfortable and coming back...so I would suggest having your other posts in the sidebar so that we can see what else you have going on. I love your slogan about dreams...and just to show that readers are different, I hardly noticed the clouds in the background! :-) I'd love to have you visit my blog and give some feedback too!

  6. Hi Tru,
    i too love your overall blog theme. :) i also agree that having your posts in a sidebar, would be much easier to navigate your page.
    keep dreaming!!
    many blessings,

  7. Hello! love your quote :)

    The one thing I would say that bugs me at all is that the tabs are seperated from the body of the post. they kind of look like they are floating in space over "here's what i've been up to" :)

  8. So, I checked out a lot of the blogs in this linky party, and I must say there are a lot of white blogs out there. Color me different, but for myself I think white is blah and I like to see color in a blog, especially creative or DIY blogs. Just my opinion though.

  9. Just stopping by on the blog hop. I have enjoyed looking at some of your past projects (love that plant stand)! I'm not a huge fan of everything being at the bottom but it does keep everything nice and clean looking and I would probably get used to it after visiting a few times.


Thanks for visiting! I love comments. I read every one and will respond if you have your email attached to your name.
