New Look!

Do you like my new blog look?  Derrick agreed to help me by creating a new header.  I love it!  He even created picture where there wasn't picture to begin with!  He's pretty talented, although he won't admit it.  He says the guys on his team are better with that stuff.  He's our communications director and I'm just pumped that he used his skill to help me out!  My blog had been looking pretty shotty for a while and I was so sick of it!

Speaking of new blog stuff... Can any of you other Blogger users tell me how in the world I missed that there is a NEW editor???  I have been fighting with blogger on every post that includes pictures. I would get mad about why they hadn't updated their editor because it was soo un-user friendly.  I never go to the settings tab, but the other day I was clicking around to see if there was a way to change my blog name and route my new blog name to this http. (Does anyone know if I can do that?  Who knows if I'm even using the correct terms...)  While I was clicking around I saw that lo and behold the new editor has been here all along (actually I have no clue how long it's been available)!  I LOVE all the new options!  I think my world has been opened by the new strikethrough function!  Here is my MAJOR issue (and I really hope someone can tell me) where is the SPELL CHECK???  I'm a lost cause without spell check, so I've been cutting and pasting into Word to do my spell check! HELP!

Billie and I are off to do our long run today since tomorrow is going to be a busy day.  We're supposed to do 7 miles...I hope I don'tcry can't wait to see if my body can endure such torture!  We'll see how far we get.  The half marathon is coming up faster than what I want to believe!  I hope you all have a great weekend!

did you have a half day today? Hope your run goes well! Like the new look and I use spell check ALL THE TIME though I haven't updated to the new editor - you'll have to clue me in there.

I hope your run went well:)

Your new blog look is cute! :)

I stopped using the new editor because I couldn't find spell check either. I hate to proofread to begin with, and without spell checker I was going nuts.

I hope your run went well! :-)

Love the new look!!!! I wish I could help you with the spell check thing! If you find out please let me know too!!!

Hmm, I can try to help. Do you create your blog entries under the Dashboard and then New Post? That's where I go, and then along the top of the text box (with the formatting and hyperlink options) is a spellcheck button. If that's not how you do it, want to tell me how you get there?

I'm jealous of your snow delays, by the way. Very jealous.
