Fancifying my blog

I don't know if anyone checks in enough to notice, but I've recently overhauled my blog.  I'm adding a menu bar, trying to make it prettier, and trying to make it easier to navigate.  I'm working on picking up some tips from successful bloggers so that someone might want to actually read this thing :)

I found some very helpful tips at a couple places.  Interested in finding out?  I'll provide links, you just have to read more ;)

Kimberly over at Seven Thirty Three has some great posts on how to use blogger, how to format, personalize, and streamline your blog.  If you scroll to the bottom of the page I linked you to, you'll find a whole bunch of blogger tutorials! (You know the whole "read more" thing?  I got that from her)

Cheri over at I am Momma Hear me Roar has great tips on how to grow your blog and just did a post on how to make money blogging.  Right now I'm focusing on the growing of my blog, and I figure that the money part can come later, when I have something people actually want to read, lol.

What are your tips?  Any suggestions on what I should do with my blog?  I'm trying to post more recipes (though to be honest, I don't have too many recipes I use, I'm a creature of habit and tend to have a small rotation of meals.  I'm working on it.), and if I ever find some time to sit down and sew or design something new, I'd love to start doing some tutorials as well.  My sewing room is lonely nowadays, and it makes my fingers antsy.

Feel free to comment.  Actually, PLEASE comment!
