Let’s be honest I need all the help I can get. My weight has crept up 🙁 . And like all woman I don’t like to feel fat! Thankfully I’ve got great friends in Christy Tucker and Christine Martell that decided to help me with my weight problem.
Cause of The Weight Problem
Apparently the weight issues happened during my blog cleaning when I changed my blog image header. (Sheesh and I thought cleaning helped you lose weight!).
Christy Tucker commented that:
Does it seem like the header image leads your image off the right side of the page though? Look at the line of the rocks and the direction the person is facing–it seems to all be pointing off to the right. I wonder if you flipped the image horizontally if it would work better. You’d have to move the text somewhere else, perhaps, but with the image flipped it would draw your eye right down to the content.
Just a thought–you might want to check with Christine Martell or someone else more visually inclined. It’s possible I’m simply imagining things!
Christine’s definitely the person to ask as she’s amazing with visuals. And I’m extremely grateful because she has done an incredible analysis of my new image header while explaining all visual aspects of what the image was saying, the messages it sends the readers and options to improve.
Make the time to read Chrisine’s Does my header make my blog look fat? post (and leave her a comment thanking her for helping me)! There is so much to appreciate when using visuals on blog sites and in posts; Christine’s excellent at making you consider the issues.

My Solution To The Weight Problem
Well I decided to change my image header based on her re-design of my image however Bret Treasure has made excellent comments (read his comments as he makes really good points) on Christine’s post about the image I’ve chosen isn’t relevant to the blog content or engaging. So it may be a case the issue continues to be debated as the weight issue may not be solved 🙂
Thanks everyone who has been trying to help me with my weight problem and my blog makeover. I really appreciate your help.
