The New Layout! *Cue Fanfare*; Layout Version: Elizabeth Bennet

As promised, the new layout has arrived! This layout will probably stay up for a month or two (haven't decided which yet). I think this layout came out pretty well. So, allow me to begin the tour.

This month's theme is Elizabeth Bennet from Pride and Prejudice. I thought that since my pen name is Miss Elizabeth Bennet, I thought it was a good choice for the monthly/bimonthly theme. The header features multiple shots of Lizzy in Pride and Prejudice (1995), and the background is a forest background to match. I will be updating the Facebook header very soon so that it matches the blog's header.

Another big thing you will notice is that I cut out the right sidebar and kept the left sidebar. Unless there is a tournament, there will only be one sidebar. One of the major things you will notice is the lack of other blog buttons. Don't worry: I haven't gotten rid of them. I created a separate page called Visit These Blogs! that has my recommended blogs

In the future, I'm hoping to create a "Blogger of the Month" widget on the sidebar, but I still need to work out the details. The idea is to give a random blogger some face time on my sidebar and then refer to the rest of the blog buttons on that page.

Oh! And I have a matching button! You can find this button on the sidebar and on the Blog Buttons page.

That's pretty much the layout changes I've made. It was mostly getting rid of extras that weren't useful anymore and putting up a new banner and background. I'd love you feedback on the new layout. And if you have any suggestions now, please feel free to comment on them. If they don't make it into this layout, they could very well go into the next layout!  

 God Bless,
God Bless, Miss Elizabeth Bennet


  1. I love this new layout! I adored the old one too but this new one is great. :)

  2. How very lovely! It's so cleared up and easy to get around. :) Looking forward to future posts and updates!

  3. Love it! So very pretty and functional and dainty and pleasing!

  4. I love it! And you mentioned my blog. :) Made me happy! Thanks, Miss Elizabeth!

  5. I love this new layout, especially the background. I have always liked a fairly minimal sidebar, so I clean mine up from time to time. Too busy is almost painful to the eyes.

  6. Perfectly beautiful design, Elizabeth! I love the green.

  7. Love the new light and pretty. How do you even make such an amazing headline?

    1. Rose,
      I used a program called Photoshop to make the header. It took quite a bit of trial and error, but I eventually came up with the header you see above. I'm glad you like it! :-)

  8. I like your new layout! Though, I like Pride and Prejudice so anything related to it is always nice. Now I do wish to see the movie again.

  9. This is so beautiful! I especially love the country background. You certainly do know how to make a blog look lovely! : )


  10. Thank you, everyone! I'm glad you all like the new layout! :-)

  11. I love the new layout! Much simpler, easy to navigate, and such a pretty background. Kudos!
