Updating Bella’s Bookshelves

For some time now, I’ve been wanting to change the look of Bella’s Bookshelves. I’ve done it countless times, we all know, but I’ve never thought it right enough to leave alone.

It now has quite a different look, and one I’m more comfortable with. The other style, dictated by my sister’s excellent illustration, made it too feminine, I think, and I worried about excluding men readers. Also, I’ve managed to garner several major clients (see my About page) from my writing on this blog (yippee!), which has led me to think I need to take it to the next step of looking a bit more professional (but not stuffy!).

I hope you like it still. The content will not change.

Thank you for reading!

As ever,



  1. It looks great, a bit more “professional” and puts the content out front. I love it. Great job!

  2. Thank you! I have to admit, I used a free WordPress theme; all I did was tweak it!

  3. I really like the new look, too. Polished. :)

  4. I think it looks wonderful — magazine style. I Do miss your sister’s art though!

  5. I like it! Very clean, and definitely professional. Also, congrats on the added work from the blog – very impressive! :-)

  6. Thanks, Kerry!
