Up and Running Again!

Welcome to the new and improved My Kentucky Living!

One of my Canva creations

My blog fairy...Linda, works very quickly!

She has me up and running once again.

I have a cool, new, contemporary blog template to showcase my traditional style. (You know me...I love opposites, and how they compliment each other.) 

Here is a quick tour of some new items on the blog that I hope you will enjoy. 

You will notice social links at the very top of the page. I hope you click and join me on these social sites. 

I am loving Instagram, so you will see tons of my photos there. It's a fun way to connect and chat a bit. 

Next is the menu bar...with dropdowns. Click on the link title and other "pages" will appear. Just click on the one you want. I think you might enjoy the "holiday decorating" tab...where I feature Fall, Halloween, and Decorating posts. Those are always a work in progress! (Can you believe that fall is all over HL.) My recipes, Derby, and others are still there too. 

Next you will notice that I have a slider bar with choices of previous blog posts. So, you can keep your eye on those in case you have missed some posts along the way.

Much of the rest of the blog is the same as before. I really liked my previous template that Linda designed...so I told her that there were several things that I wanted to keep the same. 

My big request for my new template was to have a three column footer like I had on the previous template. I like to have informational info for you there. An archive by date, as well as post labels, and my blogroll also reside in the footer. 

I chose the template called Charm, and Linda customized it for me. If you need some tweaking of your blog you might want to get in touch with the blog fairy. :-)  Click her ad below this post to visit her website. 

We are doing some minor tweaking at this point...but the walls are finished and the dust has been swept up! I am so pleased that you stopped by to visit. 

Meet Linda...

If you have any trouble finding something that was on the blog before just ask me and I will help you find it. 

Thanks for visiting!
