The Blog Revamp

Britt Skrabanek


Well kiddos, it’s that time again. I changed my blog up!

But, Britt. Didn’t you do that earlier this year too?

Yep, unfortunately I’m that crazy.

Here’s the thing. I noticed my current blog theme was popping up all over the place on WordPress, and my suspicions were confirmed when I saw that it was a trending theme. So I went back to an old theme I used before and jazzed it up with the fancy featured posts slider on the home page.

The long hair profile shot is long gone. Cuter social media button icons are hanging out on the upper left instead of the right.

Other than that, I spent WAY too many hours on my day off debating over font size, color, and widget placement. For those who have changed their blog theme before, I know you feel me.

But I think the finished product turned out pretty rad.

So, voila! Take a look around.

Also there have been a few reviews coming in for my most recent novel, Nola Fran Evie, over the past month. I wanted to quickly share a fabulous 5-star review that made me giddy this morning.

Nola Fran Evie Cover Large

Grab it on Amazon or Amazon UK

I enjoyed Nola Fran Evie by Britt Skrabanek very much. The obviously talented author has spun a tale that caught my interest from the start. Before opening the first page I thought this was going to be ‘chick-lit’ and I probably wouldn’t like it, but I was so wrong.

I enjoyed ‘A League of Their Own’ so I expected something similar, but this story was much more. Women in the 40’s and 50’s were not supposed to be independent, willful and athletic. Nola, Fran and Evie were all those things and at the same time women who touched me in a surprising way. I would love to know each of them.

The author created characters that were so different one would think they could never get along much less become so dependent on one another’s friendship, but that’s exactly what happened.

I won’t go into details of the story because this book should be enjoyed by readers in their own personal way.

I highly recommend this story to readers who enjoy a good story that will leave you thinking about the characters long after you put the book down.

I want to thank you all for your awesome support with my writing. It’s not an easy path to take, but you guys definitely help me keep going.

We writers say it all the time, but please remember…reviews are like gold for us Indies. If you like a book, please take a few minutes to leave a little something.

It truly goes a long way.

Hope you’re all having a gorgeous week!

  1. Haha, you will notice from a comment I left on your previous post, that I thought you had changed your blog earlier because I commented on your posts out of order! Silly New Englander!

    Congrats on that awesome review. I’m glad someone took the time to write it up!

  2. Well I’ve never been trendy before, but I guess I’m using the trendy blog theme! The re-vamp looks great – bright, fresh and modern. And congratulations on the great review – well deserved 🙂

  3. Well, here you have it.. like I didn’t noticed haha
    Your site looks great! Sleek and clean, and love your updated profile pic, although I must say I did like the other theme as well.
    Congrats on that great review!

  4. Revamps can be refreshing, can’t they? I love the new look. And congrats on that great review—there’s another great way to feel refreshed and rededicated to the writing!

  5. It looks great Britt. I really liked the last one too, some much I almost used it myself, but thought that would be cheesy since you had just chosen. Changing is a pain in the butt. I’m not totally happy with my new theme, but I imagine it will remain as is for a while. Good for you for being so industrious.
    Congrats on the lovely review 🙂 you deserve it.

    1. No biggie. Especially with the free themes that look nice and clean, they tend to pop up everywhere. Changing takes a lot of work. I definitely won’t be messing with it for a while. I think once a year is a nice way to mix it up with the blog themes though.

      Thanks for the congrats, sweetness!
