New blog features around here!

Hey everyone! Well, I may have gotten a teeny bit carried away with those thumbnail galleries we were talking about the other day. But once I got started, I couldn't stop!!!

I decided I wanted most of my pages to have this kind of feature, except for my home page, which features my latest posts as usual. So...most pages now have thumbnail galleries featuring posts under those given subjects/categories, like so:

I think it's a cool way to navigate the blog--instead of going back to find older posts, you can now jump around to anything that may interest you! I'm really hoping this is a feature you might enjoy.

I am still adding to the galleries this week...I have many more posts to link up to these and it may take some time!

If you are interested in reading more about how to create these thumbnail galleries, please stop by this previous post: Organizing blog posts with thumbnail galleries...

Ok, confession time. I am on vacation. I am AWAY on vacation. Nothing major, just a favorite location we love to visit. But I took my laptop. I just can't leave it behind! In a way, I'm glad I did...it's been pouring buckets here and my sister and I have nothing to do but watch movies, shop, and hang out (very relaxing!!). Do you take your laptop on vacation??

  4. You are so stinkin' organized. Want to come to my classroom?

    Also-I sent you an email...disregard. I figured it out all by myself and I'm so proud of myself :)

    I knew you would be the person to ask if I couldn't.

    Have a great night!
