Check out my new digs!

by Janelle Hanchett

I’m a real blogger now.

Know why?

Because Courtney at JudithShakes Designs created for me a real blog and a real logo (and, therefore, a real identity). Thanks, Courtney, for that.

Not only does the woman [obviously] create badass websites, but she has a brilliant wry sense of humor, an approachable, totally not annoying communication style, and I’m sure if she didn’t live in whatever god-forsaken humidity-ridden state she’s currently residing in we’d totally be BFFs. Or some bizarre derivative thereof.

And not only that. I also have a Facebook page – you can also get there in the LOGO – how rad is that? (And I’d really really like it if you’d like me. Please like me. I need you to like me. I’ll die if you don’t like me. I’ll camp on your front lawn and weep until you like me. (I’m practicing my codependent routine. How was it?)).

Okay but seriously I only have 29 “likes” – kinda pathetic, especially considering I KNOW I have AT LEAST 33 readers.


And you can follow me on The Twitter – (oh hells yeah I have a custom one). I go on The Twitter occasionally to say really profound shit in 140 characters or less. Actually it’s more like 136, since 4 are automatically taken up with the F word.

Or you can subscribe. Since I’m a real blogger now you probably feel compelled to subscribe or follow. No worries. Just go with that.

Also, since apparently when cool things happen they happen all at once…my new best friend nominated me for CBS Sacramento’s Most Valuable Blog Award…please vote for me by clicking the badge on the left or THIS LINK. I’ll owe you my life. Apparently you can vote every day. That would be totally fine with me.

And… I’m done with the shameless self-promotion. You’ll never ever see it again.

I lie.

But seriously, what do you think of the new digs?

P.S. If you hate it, I’ll tell you it’s fine and that I appreciate the feedback while simultaneously planning ways to quietly destroy you. (That’s my passive aggressive codependent impersonation. You like?)

    Love the logo… Too cute.

    • renegademama

      It is. Isn’t it. I love his belly.

  • NorCal Punk Rock Mom

    Now you have 31 “likes”. You had me at F word.
    I just voted for you on CBS Sacramento’s Most Valuable Blogger Awards 2011.
    Yes. You’ll owe me.

    • renegademama

      You already know how I feel about you. Love, adoration, a litle stalkish.

      But seriously, thank you for the nomination. Really appreciate it.

  • Rachel

    Looks Awesome, congrats on the new site. Simple and easy to use:)

    • renegademama

      Thanks! I wanted something easy and clean. She did a good job I think.

  • Kateri Von Steal

    This is amazing! I love it!
    I do miss your old header though. The blue mohawk made my day!

    And this was as funny read!
    If I wasn’t completely anti-facebook right now, I’d “like” you.

    I’ve been having an interesting week.. come check out this weeks posts!

    • renegademama

      Yeah, I kind of miss the blue mohawk. I’ll have to figure out how to integrate it somehow…maybe as an image for some weekly post or something. I don’t know…it was pretty rad.

      And no worries. Facebook has turned into a bit of a nosey nelly, all up in everybody’s business. Fuckers are tryin’ to take over the world. Soon, we’ll all work for Google and Facebook. Won’t that be fun?!

  • kim

    I fucking love it.

    It makes me happy.

  • Carri

    It’s Fucking awesome!

  • Jennifer

    I love the new design. You are having a great year!

    • renegademama

      You know, the husband and I were just talking about that. It has indeed been a great year. Thanks.

  • dani
