New layout again

I’ve made a new layout for my blog! It uses a full width background image (that should resize no matter what resolution you’re using) of Badlands National Park in South Dakota, which is a photo I took on our holiday last year.

I wanted to get the US National Park sign in somewhere but wherever I put it, it looked out of place. I might add it in somewhere else.

Hopefully having a new layout will motivate me to blog a little more! (I think I say this every time I change it..)


I accidently deleted my blog’s database with my main installation of WordPress on it. I was cleaning out my databases, deleting unused ones, and for some reason I managed to delete this one. x_x Anyway, I’ve re-installed WP and I used the Google cache to get my blog entries and pages back (I only had a few anyway).

I did have my old theme saved on my comp, but I didn’t really like it that much, so I went searching for a new one. I can make my own, but I haven’t really got the time to make one from scratch. :p I found this gorgeous theme called Takteek01 which I’m using at the moment. I added the pretty image of the Hogwarts Express to the header. I might play around with the CSS a little, but to be honest this is the first theme I’ve ever really liked, so I’ll probably leave it like this.

Now that my blog looks nice, I should be motivated to update it more. I’m aiming to udpdate at least once a week, mainly on the weekend. Hopefully I’ll start posting some pictures too.

I’m gonna get back to adding bits and pieces to this new layout. Lets see what I come up with.
