A New Year, A New Newlywedisms!



January 2nd marked the ONE YEAR anniversary of Newlywedisms by Bryn! This year has flown by and I'm so excited to share Newlywedisms 2.0, the renovation with you.

I wanted the blog to be a little more reader friendly and esthetically pleasing, so I asked my [computer programmer/engineer] dad to help, and voila! Designed by me, programmed by him. I think he got a little annoyed with me during the process, but we made a good team. And thank god for gmail & gchat - we did the entire re-design using those two forms of communication.

I had originally planned a bigger Anniversary celebration, but unfortunately our lives, minds and hearts have been consumed with Charlotte (I'll update soon regarding her condition). 2009 hasn't been the best of times, but the husband and I have said it can only get better from here.

I do have some plans in my back pocket for the blog, and I plan on 2009 being better than 2008. But in the mean time, go to my Blog Archive and click on January to check out what the blog was like back then, it's pretty fun seeing what I was thinking and doing a year ago - hence the reason why I started this blog!

And lastly, a big THANK YOU to my readers! Thanks for continually checking out the blog, commenting and supporting me through rough times (right now). The blog world is a great community and I'm glad I joined it a year ago!


shameless plug: If you are looking to re-vamp your blog, my dad and I would love to help you out! We both have a good time doing it and because it's a hobby for us, it's more budget friendly than hiring a graphic designer.

  1. Oooh, Bryn I might like to hire you to revamp my blog too! I tried creating a three column template, but now my header is all screwed up and I cannot customize it. Can you email me at fuzzypeachesthenest@gmail.com and let me know how much you would charge?
    Your new layout looks great, I really love it! I thought it looked great before but this looks even better!
