Lady Java's Lounge Blog Makeover Giveaway

Lady Java over at Lady Java's Lounge is having a Blog Makeover Giveaway to help celebrate her 40th Birthday, which was March 9th and her 9th Anniversary which is March 25th. (So if we want to be technical, Lady Java has been married 8 years, and roughly 11 and a half months.)

I have been wanting to have a Blog Makeover for quite some time now. I've been doing some research at the public library on how to do it myself, but unfortunately I have not been able to find the right books to develop the mad skills to do a Blog Makeover myself. Since I am on a very limited income due to disability and my partner lost her job, something as self indulgent as a Blog Makeover (though totally and completely necessary for a blogger) it is just not in the budget. My teenage son, (read bottomless pit, thinks 4 sandwiches is an after school snack, eating machine teenage son) just wouldn't appreciate my spending part of the food budget on my blog. I want to clean up my sidebar by adding some tabs near the header for stuff like awards, recipes, etc., widen my blog post column, and really pimp out my blog in a totally Retro Diner style. I've been blogging for 4 months now and have managed to meet some awesome blogger friends. I have steadily increased my traffic beyond what I ever would have thought I could have accomplished in such a short time. I feel it is time to tjuz my blog a bit. Winning the Blog Makeover would freshen up my blog and my spirit.

If you want to enter Lady Java's Blog Makeover Giveaway here are her very simple rules:

1. Tell Lady Java her birthdate.
2. Tell Lady Java how many years she has been married.
3. Put that information in a blog entry also telling Lady Java why you think you want and deserve this blog makeover.
4. Link to the entry in your blog entry and leave Lady Java the url of that post in her Mr. Linky on her website.

So, Happy Belated Birthday Lady Java and everyone wish me luck! And best of luck to everyone who enters!
