Blog and Channel Makeover

Blog Snapshot
            Hey bookworms! If you're reading this, then you've probably noticed the new layout. No? Well, go ahead take a look around. Done? Good. Sooo....what do you think? 
            Let me tell you, it was not a decision easily made. First I removed the old template to test out a new one and like a cocky fool, I didn't save my old template. Suddenly my blog was thrust into limbo and for two days it had a new image every few hours. None of them were right. They were the wrong theme or there was something wrong with the codes. It was starting to look like I wasn't going to find a good template. 
             I think the worst part is that this template was one of the first layouts that I tried. It was insecurity that got the best of me and why I stayed in limbo for so long. Just when I was about to give up, I threw this one up as a spot holder and realized that it was exactly what I had been looking for. Ugh. It was a weird moment; I was relieved to have found my template and yet kicking myself for not seeing it sooner.
             Now onto some of the new elements of this blog. Most exciting for me is the tabs at the top. They all work (Yay!), which is the main flaw that most templates had. However, not all of the pages are finished. They will be, when the time is right.
              The next new element is my new button. It was specially chosen by two of my favorite bloggers; Cariblogs and Mrs. Woffy's Place. I would be honored by anyone who chooses to support my endeavors by displaying it on their own blogs.
               And before I go, I will mention the changes made to TheBookVlogger Channel. It has a new template and more of a finished look then before. Is it great? Nah, but it's much harder to find layouts for youtube then it is for blogger. It works for now. 
                So I hope everyone enjoys the new look. Happy Reading.

Thank you:
