New Pre-Made WordPress theme

A few days ago I found a random, half-finished WordPress theme sitting on my development site. So I figured, why not finish it?? So I did! I’m naming this one Sideways because of the slightly nontraditional way of putting the header and navigation in the sidebar.

I actually really like this theme, if I do say so myself! It’s simple, clean, but still a bit different.

If you’re interested in buying Sideways, it’s available on Creative Whim for $20!

Save the Date!

Coding God and I got our wedding save the date cards! I designed them and got them printed with Moo, who totally rocks (I also used them for business cards last year)!

  4. The Winner’s Curse was a really enjoyable read, so I hope you like that one! My Last Kiss looks really good as well. πŸ™‚ And that new template! I love the simplicity, the colors and of course the header on the side! Your Save the Dates are gorgeous–minimalist designs are always the best! So far, (based on your posts about it) your wedding sounds fantastic! <3

  5. I love that theme AND your adorable save the dates! πŸ™‚ So cute!

    I’m planning to make the move to Word Press and onto your server sometime before I go to BEA. (I’m thinking sometime in late April.) I hate the limitations on blogger, and I have a graphic design background, but I feel like my blog just doesn’t reflect that because of some of the limitations. I DON’T have a great CSS/XML background, but I do know some, and I do know a good amount of HTML. So I’m hoping I can figure it out. (I read your post this week on using a quality template to build off of and that really seems to be the way to go.)

    In terms of exciting things that happened for me this week … I finished six months of leukemia treatment as of March 5. πŸ™‚ I will be on this medicine for a long time and I’m not considered to be out of the woods for another 12-18 months yet, but six months is a great milestone and I will be getting updated test results soon. πŸ™‚

    When are you planning on coming into NYC for BEA? I’m going to be in the city for a couple of weeks. I get there on May 23 and leave like June 10. I’m staying with the people I stayed with last year via AirBNB. They’re super nice and it cost me $39 a night, which you just can’t beat. We need to schedule time to hang out and maybe buddy up a day or two while we’re there. I prefer to sit awkwardly in silence with someone I know. LOL … But I also know that the day before BEA starts (so I think May 28 this year) is the Teen Author Carnival and the Book Blogger Con. I didn’t do the Book Blogger Con last year and I’ve read up about it, but I’m still thinking I’m not going to do it this year. It’s extra money I don’t feel like spending since I want to get a reader pass and go to TAC.

    Anyways, this is a really long comment. But I’d been meaning to touch base with you on all of those things. πŸ™‚

    1. Ohh Heather, I would love to have you as a hosting client!! You’ll love WordPress!!

      Congratulations on finishing six months of treatment! It sounds like you’re doing well *hugs*

      I’m not sure exactly when I’ll be going to NYC for BEA. Before I can book I have to make sure my schedule isn’t conflicting with it, which I won’t know for another 1-3 weeks. Assuming I go though, I will definitely be attending the Blogger Con!
