Guess what? Pretty Opinionated is getting a makeover! To celebrate, I’m hosting a little giveaway. One of you will win a $25 Amazon gift card or $25 Paypal cash, whichever you prefer. Use it to give yourself or a small part of your own home a makeover. Or whatever else you want, I’m not here to tell you how to spend your winnings.
After years of doing minor tweaks to the same basic theme, it’s time for a bit of a change. Don’t worry, nothing too drastic! Well, a little drastic, I am thinking of changing the color scheme and the header. To be honest, I’m still undecided. I have a new theme up on a test site and I’m still playing around with it.
Why the change? Aside from the fact that it’s just time, my current theme is totally outdated. As WordPress continues to update, it gets more and more outdated, meaning at some point it’s going to cause catastrophe. Catastrophe, my friends, is never a good thing, especially when you’re a single mom making a living off her site!
I’ve been looking at themes for a year now. I had one from Genesis that I actually liked. Got it perfected on the test site, uploaded it to my site and BAM, Very. Bad. Things. So I went with a theme from Theme Garden that’s a little cleaner and less dependent on framework and plugins. Wish me luck!
I can’t tell you exactly what it will look like yet, but I can promise that it will stick with my general attitude about site design: clean, fresh, uncluttered. Once I get the new theme up, it should only take me about 20 minutes to transfer the tweaks. However, you may notice a few changes here and there as I tweak the tweaks. Plus, as I’ve discovered, transferring designs is never as smooth as you think it’s going to be! So consider this giveaway a thank you for your patience!
Now, here’s what you really came for: the giveaway!
$25 Amazon Gift Card or Paypal Cash Giveaway
Giveaway is open worldwide (but for those outside the US, I’ll have to give you the cash because I don’t know how to buy international Amazon gift cards) to anyone who is the age of majority in their country. For the US, that’s 18+. Canadians, years of running giveaways for OurFamilyWorld taught me that you’ll have to answer some sort of skill question if you win. Don’t worry, I stink at coming up with those and it’s usually a really lame math question. If you happen to live in Istanbul (not Constantinople, now it’s Istanbul, not Constantinople…), I’ll have to look into the rules for your country should you win. Same goes for the rest of the world. I just wanted an excuse to quote They Might Be Giants. Enough of my jabbering, enter below for your chance to win!
