After over three years of staying the same, I have changed the look of the blog twice this past month. Why? Well again I felt that after three years it and I could use a little mixing it up. The first theme that I chose, which I really loved, did not work for everyone reading. It would make the words disappear and folks could not see what I was writing. So Saturday afternoon my friend Donna MacDonald gave me her honest evaluation of the problems. She wrote:
Hi Nancy & Joe,
Happy Easter to you both. Who gets to hide the eggs & who gets to hunt for the eggs?
Thought I would give you a little feedback on your blog. I think your blog is great and certainly has the makings for a “travel book.” My feedback is on your background….when your verbage is directly on your glass, the background is extremely difficult to read & when it is on top of the dark green it is impossible to read. Of course, when your photos/writings are layered on white & then the glass…everything is readable. Don’t mean to be picky….just don’t want to miss anything. Definitely think you have the makings of a travel/living in Ecuador book.
Ecuador appears to be agreeing with you guys…..take care.
Love, Donna & Norman
One other reader found it difficult to read with the new theme but when I questioned what the issues were he had not gotten back to me so I thought it was a random issue only on his computer and let it go. Again, I really liked the look of the new theme. So now I have changed it again – I took a bit of time to find one that was easier to read and in doing so I was able to add my photo of the pelicans here in San Clemente to the masthead.
I do appreciate each comment that has been made. I feel blessed that our experiences living in Ecuador are being followed by so many folks and hope that some of it has made a favorable impression of this beautiful country and its people.
