New Winner & New Look

First things first. One winner of Siren's Call by Devyn Quinn didn't claim. So I picked a new winner. Congrats...

You've been email! Please respond in 48 hours. If I don't get a response, I will give away the last ARC in a twitter giveaway - which are just so much fun.

Next subject to tackle. The big FAIL of blogger and the BWB design. I have no idea what happened, but if you have been around here in the last couple of days, blogwithbite.com was a mess. I couldn't figure out what was wrong - it takes and throws the third column completely off the page no matter how much you expand. So I couldn't repair the other design - and tried to go with the new design framework that blogger has now, which also failed miserably last night. Finally figured it out that it is the settings for the amount of posts.

Those new little share features, and comments features, etc. at the footer of your posts have been upgraded and that is what seems to have ripped a new one in our blog. I had to go and switch from the default {7} posts which it is automatically putting - to {2} posts on there to stop the column blow out from happening.  So, if this happens to you guys, switch your blog to only show 2 posts and hopefully this will work.

It's like cutting your long hair after a really long time... At first you panic and maybe shed a tear at the loss. Then a couple minutes later you're strutting your stuff because you know you look good! :P Sooo, the meaning behind that crazy, moronic message was to tell you that the site looks fantastic!! Love the header!! All is good! LOL!
