WordPress Blog: Burlap & Crystal

Another blog has successfully launched! This one is for burlapandcrystal.com. The blogger, Julie, came to me with her logo already designed which made laying out the blog fairly straightforward, especially since she wanted the look to be somewhat reserved so her (excellent) photos would have plenty of room to shine on their own.

My Disneyland Blog

Setting up blogs for other people convinced me that I should have one, too. So I’m starting up a self-hosted WordPress site called The Last King of Fantasyland. Here’s my current header (I have other photos to roll out later):

The site was pretty easy to set up by creating a child theme of the standard Twenty Eleven theme. I changed the fonts and colors and a little bit of the layout by including the sidebar on pages and individual posts. I signed up for Google Adsense so I can get rich!

Oh and I also made a really cool navigation bar for all my “follow me” links:
