Change

So if you've been stopping by recently, you've probably noticed (quite) a few changes. From the layout, the theme, the background, even the title have gone through some change. Please bear with me as I continue to give "Joelen's Culinary Adventures" some polishing up!

I was tossing the idea of doing a whole new blog dedicated to "What's Cookin, Chicago," however it just wasn't easy scrapping "Joelen's Culinary Adventures" all together. So now, I'm in the process of finding a nice balance in merging the two seamlessly (which is easier said than done!)

The cutesy icons that seem to clog up my sidebars are gone and I'm going for a sleeker, more polished, professional look. It seems like a logical approach since What's Cookin, Chicago is continually expanding and gaining more exposure.

If you have any suggestions for blog features that you'd like to see on my blog, please leave a comment! I'm always open to ideas and suggestions to make my site more effective and user-friendly. Thanks in advance and hopefully my blog's makeover will be completed soon!
