The Reveal

11 Dec

Oh. Em. Jee.  I changed my header image.

I’ve talked of this moment for a very long time, excited to release my web page from the chains of Yo Gabba Gabba.  To be honest, I’ve never watched it.  I actually didn’t even know what it was until a reader pointed it out to me.   Hey, when you’re wading through the strange, murky seas of building a webpage (regardless of whether it’s noob friendly or not), you’ll do anything to look like you’re put together.

I’m pretty sure that having a children’s cartoon image at the top of my page has lost me some potential subscribers.  Then again, now so might the D&D dice.

I could have unveiled this on a weekday, when everyone is reading and not out living their awesome lives, but I wanted to be sneaky.  Also, I’ve spent all my time since last night barfing out some kind of awful hell demon and it works in my favor to not have to come up with a topic today.  

Seriously.  Hell demon.

So from the comfort of my couch, buried beneath 10,000 blankets and with a box full of mini wheat thin crackers by my side, I present to you my new header.  It’s brought to you by Unillu, the art company brainchild of Megan Prior-Pfeifer, which strives to create unique illustrations and is not afraid to push boundaries.  You can check out more work from Unillu by clicking these hyperlinks I keep slyly inserting into our little talk here.  Or you can scroll to the bottom of this very page and click the pretty green box. 

Feel free to give feedback, leave comments, tell me you miss Yo Gabba Gabba – whatever your heart desires.  Thank you for reading, for subscribing, for liking me on Facebook, and following me on Twitter.  It’s that kind of pressure that leads someone to feel the need to change their header image.  If you don’t do any of the things I just listed, consider them.  Browse around.  Be ye warned: I talk about cats a lot.  

Click, browse, subscribe, like.  I’m gonna go work on that hell demon.

    I like it! I usually read the daily email, so I don’t see the blog header very often…hadn’t realized it was Yo Gabba Gabba until you mentioned it (and I do a lot of nannying). I’m surprised there are no cats, though!

      Also, feel better!

        ugh, thanks. I was a hot, hot mess.

      You make a very, very good point. Also, I totally forget that you read. I’m doing Couch to 5K! Lori said you’d be proud. 🙂

    I am notoriously bad at noticing things, so I’m glad you pointed it out. Looks great!

      haha I think it’s like a ton of bricks myself. Thanks a lot!

          🙂 hey, I’d been talking about it for quite some time. I meant I owed it to them, for the record. That was all. 😛

    This is a very cool header! Next time you’re stumped for a topic, explain the significance of all the stuff in the header. Except for the cutie-patootie on the left – I get that part.

      *blush* you should recognize quite a few of them from posts, being a regular and all. But I’m so glad to have that in my pocket for an uninspired day – thanks for the suggestion!

    *gasp* Is that Falkor???


    • Jackie December 23, 2011 at 2:02 pm #

      thank you so much for knowing – and yes. 🙂

    Spending the morning getting caught up on blog posts. Love the new header!

    T minus 12 days until we are reunited.
