Time for a change!!!

Well, it has been time for a change for my blog! And I would like to thank my very good friend Chica from Photo-Projectz for taking the time and effort to create and build this marvellous layout.

I absolutely love the header and the colour scheme. It is a significant improvement on what was here before, and she has really managed to capture a part of me here. Chica has kindly left a few things for me to play with to enable me to add my very own personal touch. So I will be having a dabble over the next few days!

If you would like help with your blog design, then I totally recommend you visit Chica's graphic design services website design-bug.

My blog is very plain as I have no skill when it come to organiseing and andd extra bits to it. LOL!

Can't wait to see it with all your finishing touches.

Muse said...

well done chica! Change is always good. I think the color scheme really goes with the content, has a journal/travel like feel to it. The header is fantastic! Photoshop? I so wish I could come up with a header, mine are always so cheezy

Chica said...

Great job, Chica!

Hey you little sweetie, I agree with Chica..."you're so genuine and kind," ABSOLUTELY the BEST!

The only thing I miss is your podcast greeting. It was fun to hear your voice. I listened to that a couple of times. Just love the accent!!! :) :) Maybe it's still here and I just can't find it. If not I think it should be added. In fact I liked yours so much that I recorded one of my own but it's not as good as what you had. Yours was so natural and warm, like the guy next door....like YOU!

Thinking of you and hope you've avoided this chest/throat thing that's going around the world right now.

Take care my dear friend.
Know that you are thought of often.
I've missed being here more and seeing what you are up to.

GREAT BIG HUGS!!!!
Robin xx :) :)

PS Also watched the video below of Swindon in Wiltshire and loved seeing where you live. I tried to spot your house but they didn't put a red X on it. I kept looking for "GRAHAM LIVES HERE >>>", but the bloody laggards forgot to do that. LOL :) :) Rob x

I used to have a little bit of an issue getting on to your blog sometimes (it would freeze up on me and I would have to get out and reload) but this new site loads just fine and fast. Great job! Love it!

Wayfaring Wanderer said...

You're getting all sorts of positive feedback here.....I won't be the party pooper.....I love it, too! Great job Chica :o)

I suppose that maybe I need a snazzy layout too, I'm just cheap!!

Hi Getty! Thank you so much for leaving a comment on my blog. I couldn´t believe my eyes when I was reading what you wrote. Thank you very much! Besides, English is not my mother tongue, so I was very pleased to read such nice words :D I can´t help thanking you again...xoxo

Great Great Layout

Linda and her Twaddle said...

Great layout. So often I could not load your last one (slow). Well done. Apparently a change is as good as a holiday - not sure about that.

Muse said...

Its awful quiet around here lately, what are you busy with? :)
PS: Just a note that your posts don't have the date posted, only the time?

I look forward to the results of the photo challenge, and to see if you had any time to balance that egg!

Hi guys
We're running a video campaign on behalf of Holiday Extras who are looking to appear on sites like grahamettridge.blogspot.com,
and I'm enquiring if would you be interested in posting the clip, which is targeted at your readers.
The film features Paul Kaye and is a humorous look at airport parking and highlights the importance of security.
You would be paid for the placement and so that your user's know it's commercial content, the video should be marked as 'Sponsored'.
Alternatively we have options for sidebar and expandable clips for traditional advertising spaces.
Viewers would not leave your site when watching the film, and the clip would be embedded in a compatible video format.
We are looking at a live date very soon, please see the clip here:
http://www.the7thchamber.com/blog.asp?ID=13754

Please let me know if you're interested in this opportunity.
Many thanks and I look forward to hearing from you soon
best regards

Toby Young

Best always love,

Hi Graham! Loooong time no talk! Thanks so much for the nice messages you left on my blog. I took an unplanned break from blogging, but now I'm getting back into it.
Your blog looks great! And I always love looking at your photography.
I've taken your advice about the gee-tar recordings! Well, I'm practicing hard and working up the skill (and courage) to post it. :)
I hope all is well, talk to you soon!
