Ramblings: Changes and A Winner!

So New York Chica has been through yet another blog redesign.  As a blogger, I feel a blog should be refreshed at least once a year.  It makes for new content for those days we are having writer’s block which happens to me way too often.  But sometimes change is good.  We all  need that extra “oomph” to get our ideas out.


So I contacted Jacqui from Wacky Jacqui Designs and told her I was ready for another change (she designed my blog once before) and she was as usual, very helpful and got back to me quick.  I have to say, she’s really amazing.  If you don’t know her, you should. I was a little bit of a pain in the butt because I wasn’t happy with certain things but she never gave up. She’s talented and very professional and will always come up with what you ask for and what you like.

So what do you think?

Do you like the new look for New York Chica?

I love it. It’s clean, crisp and simple. It’s not too busy with lots of graphics either. And the best part? It’s faster! Woo Hoo! I needed the extra speed because my site was lacking in speed.  I don’t know about you but I have Internet ADHD when it comes to pages loading up for me. If they take longer than 5 seconds, I’m loading up another site.

And now for the winner of last week’s $50 VISA Gift Card sponsored by Kids Fun Plaza.

First, I’d like to say thanks to Random.org for choosing the winner because if I had to choose the winner, it would be really difficult.  And lastly, thanks to everyone who entered.  For the next few weeks I will have a weekly giveaway for more VISA gift cards so come back!


Congrats Amanda! You have 48 hours to respond to my email.

Thanks to everyone for entering! Don’t despair, there’s another $50 VISA gift card giveaway going on right now! All you have to do is share one of your healthy recipes. Good luck!

    Hi Lisa,
    I love the new look of your blog! Jacqui did a wonderful job! It is easy to find everything. I prefer the clean look on a blog over the very busy, cluttered look where you can’t find things. I’m glad you said it is faster too. I hate when it takes forever to download a page. Thanks! 🙂
