New Look

If you haven't noticed I've changed things up a bit here at Reading Kelly. When I first created my blog back in November, I was just happy that I got it started and it had books in the background (I insist on having books in blog design somewhere). However, I wasn't so happy with how dark the page was and I wanted something just a little more simple. So ta-da! My new look.

I created the header myself! This was not an easy task for me- I am no good at creating anything on the computer. I choose beachy pictures because that beaches are my absolute favorite place to read. The picture in the middle is one I took myself in Kauai. The other two pictures I borrowed from Google :) Next time I am on a beach with some books I plan on taking my own awesome pictures and using those in the header instead of the borrowed ones.

I am slowly gaining confidence in my blog creating skills, so most likely I will play with the design again. But I'm happy with my new design for now. What do you think about it? Any suggestions or advice on creating/designing anything bloggish? Leave me comments and let me know!


  1. I love your header! The sepia tones look really nice on beachy photos.

    I picked up a lot of little tricks from Small Review's Blogging Tips & Tricks, if you're looking for some html tricks!

    1. Thanks for the comment! I will be looking into the Tips & Tricks for sure.


I love hearing from you! I appreciate all comments and will try to reply as soon as possible.
