The Macs » Blog

a new look

It was time for a new look! And actually I needed to make a change because of the comment problem that I was having in Blogger…now I can host giveaways again! So, here it is. A new look for The Macs. You will notice there are several links that don’t work yet. I just had all my posts migrated over to the new blog today, so now I will work on linking and categorizing some of my posts. Hopefully it will make it easier for you to find what you are looking for. And of course if you have any suggestions let me know!

And to celebrate finishing this big blog migration project I will be hosting a DaySpring giveaway on Friday. It is a good one, so make sure you check back in throughout the day tomorrow!

  • Elena - for the past week or so i’ve been trying to get to your blog – it’s on my bookmarked blogs 🙂 – and my browser kept trying to load, then connect, then load, then connect… load… connect… ad nauseum. Anyhoo, it wouldn’t come up and definitely didn’t reconnect me on to this new blog. I found it by googling the kids’ names, but maybe there’s a way to make that easier for anyone else who can’t find it?ReplyCancel
