I’ve got a NEW LOOK!
Welcome friends! I’m am super excited to present to you the new look of That’s What I’m Talking About. This is something that I’ve been working towards for about a year now, and I am SO PLEASED with the outcome. I want to thank Parajunkee Design for her hard work making my dream come true. She listened to everything I wanted and got it done for me. *LOVE*
There is so much to explore!
This all started in earnest this summer when Google/Blogger flagged my blog as spam and deleted it. That was not fun, but luckily I was able to get back my content fairly quickly. It was then that I finally made the decision to move away from Blogger to WordPress. At that time I started changing the look of our reviews – making things more streamlined and sleek. I was able to add some features that I didn’t have on Blogger. And now I’m at the final stage with a completed new design, including new buttons, avis, and signatures. You’ll not only see the new look here, but also on Twitter, FaceBook, GoodReads, Google, etc. I’ve also included several easy ways to follow the blog (see the sidebar).
Now that I’ve got the design and format I want, I need to protect it! Parajunkee helped by added a few security plugins. I’ve also changed the commenting system to Disqus, which is actually pretty simple to use. I was scared of it at first, but it’s really not bad at all! Please let me know if you have any issues trying to leave a comment.
New Rating Scale!
I’ve also finally changed to a letter rating scale. For a while now, our reviews have included both a letter and star rating. Now we are moving to letters only. Take a look at the new scale. What do you think?

So please take time and look around. The changes impact every page and every post. There will be new graphics coming soon when I post features like Author Guest Posts, Saturday Conversations and Sunday Snippets. I may tweak with the look of the posts, too – but not too much. I am very excited about the new design and I love sharing it with you all! Thanks so much for stopping by and your support!
