Girls Write Out
Thursday, November 02, 2006

Do you ever have those moments when you look at somebody and you know something’s different, but you can’t quite put your finger on it? Glasses? No. Haircut? No. New makeup? Dye job?

Well, in case you’re feeling that way right now while reading this blog, let me set the record straight. We have changed our blog. For one thing, on the left side we’re fighting over a box of DeBrand’s chocolates. Now that’s nothing new, but you’ve never actually “seen” us do it before. We’ve only talked about it. Now we’re on record. By the way, I might point out that Colleen and I seem to be winning the tug of war. Side note: Never come between a boomer and her box of chocolates.

More importantly, we’ve kissed the pink goodbye and settled in to a nice blood red and midnight black. What with the fighting over chocolate thing and Colleen's knife fetish, those colors just seem to fit us better, don't you think?

Special thanks to Susie at Bluebird Blogs for all her hard work to give Girls Write Out a new look!

Now, we want to hear from you. What do you think of the new site?

I never minded the pepto-pink, but this is very nice! I love it! All the pictures add a nice touch.

i like it!

looks better than my blog (that's a hint to check it out hahaha... just if you comment, make sure you put your name on the comment).

Professional AND guy friendly. I say that as an art prof. who teaches graphic design AND as a guy, not just as a large sandwich

At 8:49 AM, Blogger Kristin Billerbeck said...

Yes Allen, I've been wondering all this time. What IS the sandwich about? I'm certain you like to eat, but what about the sandwich enraptures you?

At 9:20 AM, Blogger Ane Mulligan said...

LOVE the new look!!! Boomers rule, Di! ;o)

At 9:25 AM, Blogger Diann Hunt said...

Hey, Ane, love the picture!

Allen, your comment about the sandwich cracked me up!!!

Glad you all like the blog (well, maybe except for the one who deleted her comment). ;-)

I loved the pink, and I love the red and black. Beautiful!

Hi Ladies. Love the new look--very professional. I've really enjoyed reading your blog these last few months. I discovered it after finding Kristin's books in my local library in McKinney, Texas. Keep up the terrific work. I look forward to reading more of all of your books and blog posts.

Love it! I think it's great. I now know how frustrating writing a novel can be...and NaNoWriMo just started! You have my awe!

At 11:39 AM, Blogger Heather said...

Love it . . .especially the series of photos down the side! Reminds me I should pay a little attention to my blog. {vbg} Still has a post from like Oct 14 or something on it.

Waving to Lori P. in McKinney . . . I'm in Frisco.

re: the sandwich...I think I mentioned something about it some time ago on my blog...(the entropy gate blog) It was a huge sandwich that had at least twenty indrediants...very busy, like me, and as I looked for an image that suited me, it just seemed to work. Plus there is my undying love of cheese. I plan to replace it soon.

re: new look...upon second glance, I like it even more. I especially like the images at the left of the 'fighting for chocolate'!

At 12:20 PM, Blogger Robin Caroll said...

I love it! MUCH better than the puked-up-pepto-pink! UGH LOL

At 12:20 PM, Blogger ~ Brandilyn Collins said...

Blood red letters on a black background? For a blog? Whoever woulda thunk of such a thing.

Any closer, my pets, and you will truly be crossed to the dark side.

LOVE IT!!! Great pics and eye-catching background!!

Keep the knife; give me the chocolate!! HA,HA,HA!

At 1:56 PM, Blogger Jaime said...

Scared me for a second when I first logged on - thought you'd all been replaced by some other blog.

At 4:19 PM, Anonymous Anonymous said...

fantastic!! I LOVE IT! Just like your books! :-D

At 6:18 PM, Blogger Leslie said...

I love the new look! Its great!

At 6:46 PM, Anonymous Michelle said...

I love the new site. I was fine with the pink, but this is much better.
i am totally in awe of all of you who have written good books- NaNoWriMo just started and Ive got nothing- a pathetic story line and about 40 words- so, congratulations to anyone who has ever written a book (especially with a deadline) - it much harder then it sounds.

At 8:43 PM, Blogger eileen said...

Looking great! Congrats.

At 8:52 PM, Blogger Diann Hunt said...

Christy and Michelle, congrats for taking the step to join NaNoWriMo! That's a huge deal right there! Writing a book is hard work, but persevere and see where it leads you!

Let us know how it goes!

At 11:49 PM, Blogger Lynette Sowell said...

I love it, especially the main graphic with the picture of the four of you. :)

At 4:47 AM, Blogger Rel said...

Lookin' good :)

At 12:12 PM, Blogger Julie Carobini said...

Pretty! But now I know why Susie's running behind on my blog design--she was hangin' with all you gals. I bet you bribed her with chocolate--didn't you!

Congrats on the new "do."


At 5:00 PM, Blogger Heather Ivester said...

I love this new look! I'm seeing the "Bluebird Designs" logo everywhere, so it looks like someone's staying busy!

I just started NaNoWriMo as well -- don't worry. No competition here, unless you'd like to write for elementary age girls.

Very hard work -- makes me feel a little batty. I keep thinking about my characters and expecting them to ring my doorbell.

At 5:20 PM, Blogger Kristin Billerbeck said...

Heather, I found my heroine!! Yay, she was stuck in a 40's time warp, and she's back now. I'm just jamming to finish this thing before she high tails it out of here again. Great news on the November writing month, I wish I had your fortitude!! I can't write without editing anymore. GRRR. I wish I could turn that thing off once in a while.

At 1:06 PM, Blogger Pam S. said...

Glad to hear you found your heroine, Kristin, and are back at the computer, writing up a storm. Been praying for ya to find her!

At 12:13 AM, Blogger Crystal said...

Even though you don't need my input, I do love the new look. But what really wins me over is that fancy doo-dad thingie between blogs (hey, what IS that called?) and the way your name now stands out at the bottom of individual posts for my poor ol' over 40 eyeballs. Bless you. (although, I enjoyed trying to guess who wrote each blog by your "voices."
