I'm a loser!

Well, I didn't win the blog makeover. Poor, poor pitiful me! In my despair (just kidding!) I decided to mess around with my old look myself. Hope the change isn't too distracting or hard on your eyes.

I needed some color so I decided to go with red for the header. Red heads tend to be spitfires...definition...having a fiery temper and sharp tongue. While I have been known to get mad at times I am in no way a natural red head. We'll see how well it works for me. If my personality starts to change because of my red header I promise I will do something about it!

I've also added a cast of characters to the side bar on my blog. There have actually been quite a few other major players in my blog stories, but I'll let the posts tell their stories.

And finally I changed my blogger name from Dixon Ailesi to Natalie. Ailesi is Turkish for family, but since I am the only one who posts on this blog I decided to just change it to my name. Obviously there will be stories about my family...hence the cast of characters list.

Hope you enjoy my new look.

Thanks for bringing such enthusiasm to the contest, Natalie. Random drawings can be so...random. Please keep visiting!

The red scares me...almost as much as the "word" I have to enter to prove I'm not a mindless computer.
It asked for "pwaak". I'm sure that means something horrid in some language.

heyjoe - thanks. it may be changing again in the near future...so it's a good thing you think change is good!

fringes - no worries. i promise to keep visiting your blog! i don't hold grudges...and i think Q might be helping me out a little on the side! what a guy!

brenda - i don't want to scare you. i do agree that there is quite a bit of red. i'm hoping to change that soon. stay tuned!

I think you are off to a good start. Email me and I will send you to an easy site for a background, if you are so inclined.. I think I saw a "pizza pie" background the last time I updated my page. I finally found one I like and will keep.

You crack me up by the way!

witty - thanks for coming back to enjoy my craziness. i think i am going to wait on asking for the background thing for this site. i am so tired of working on it that i don't want to even think about it for awhile. even if it is with pizza!

Freaking kick ass. I love it. This is way more you. And I don't even know you. Not really. Even though I did nominate you. Have a nice day. Or night. What time is it there anyway?

Theresa - thanks! i love the new look. much better i think. the old site was so boring. i was tempted to mess around with it the whole month of february, but i didn't want to get it how i liked it and then win the makeover! so i was patient and waited. and then Q was a great guy and helped me even though i didn't win! thanks for nominating me by the way!
