FINISH LINE: A GREAT BLOGGIESTA WAS HAD BY ALL

Bloggiesta-Finish-Line3

It’s over! And what a great event it was.  I hope you will stop by and share your links so I can see what you’ve accomplished.

Here’s what I did:

For a little history about Rainy Days and Mondays, I started this site on Blogger in August 2009:  for the full story, read my About page...and in December 2014, moved it to Word Press.  I didn’t import all the posts…just the past year.  And naturally, my old followers disappeared when I deleted the old site.  Anyone who once followed that blog, as well as new visitors:  I would love for you to follow this one.  Enough about that.

I have now completed my tasks.

Here is a screenshot of what my blog looked like before the “makeover.”  As you can see, new blog header…and what you can’t see, you can check out below on my list:  new pages, cleaned-up sidebar, etc.
