Ready For A Blog Change

I've grown bored of the way my blog looks. 

So bored that I looked up another word for 'bored.' I stumbled across its definition which more or less said "wearily dull" which I thought was fitting for how I felt. 

I love the picture I have at the top. I took it after a long hike up to Priekestolen (which means Pulpit Rock) in Stavanger. That was the hike where I dangled my feet off ledge with a 600 meter high drop straight into the fjord below. 

I think the picture at the top of my blog is also really important for people who don't know what a 'fjord' is. 
I understand those people, because I used to be one of them - much to the dismay of most Norwegians. I remember shocking the boys that came to the states to study abroad when I admitted that I had no idea what a fjord was. (It's a long, narrow, deep inlet of sea between steep slopes). Need more pictures than the one above?


So, I'm ready for a blog make-over. The thing is, I need to learn HTML and CSS  and I have no idea where to start. Also, I'm sure I don't have the patience for it. 
But I'll keep you posted and hopefully one day soon you'll look at my blog and see something fresh and fantastic! 

Wish me luck!


  1. i know a lot of that junk :) we can have a tea/blog party some day haha ;-)

  2. I would love to give you some pointers or design one for you if ya like! Here's my design blog: http://creatively-you.blogspot.com/

  3. Goodluck with your revamp! Looking forward to seeing how it goes :)

  4. i am so dysfunctional with a comp so don't change it too much or i can't follow it. i love your style of writing and i am feeling a wee bit norwegian thanks to your blogs. love, sharon

  5. Yay another Norway blogging friend! I love Megan's blog and I know I'm going to love yours too. Megans already has me planning a Norway adventure so I can see the fjords. Good luck with your redesign. That's always one of my favorite parts of blogging.

  6. It's not so hard alyssa. I don't REALLY know HTML but I figured out some things here and there. And blogspot kind of helps you tamper with things in the Design section :)

  7. I love these photos!!! My husband and I got married in Stavanger while we were living there from 2088-2009...he's an engineer and had a one year placement there. We loved it!!! I have a photo of me on Priekestolen too!!!

    Look forward to the makeover, I've just recently gotten into blogging...it's a little overwhelming!!

    Tusen takk,
