Quick Bloggy Notes...Skip This If You're Super-Busy!

Just wanted to note a few things here (mostly so I don't forget them!) about upcoming posts and continuing blog changes:

:: This week's LOMO (Leftover Makeover) will be up later this afternoon/evening; I'll have a Mr. Linky box at the bottom and an *improved* button so feel free to join in the fun if you'd like to post a LOMO up over at your webjoint.

:: I have a quick post planned for My Frugal Journey tomorrow; I'd like to let everyone know that if you're interested in writing a guest post about any part of your Frugal Journey, please email me with your interest. I'd like to share your story as inspiration to others who are just starting to travel this path. No story is too small!

:: Double Duty Dinners will be live tomorrow; if you read last week's post and instructions and came away thinking I didn't elaborate or explain well enough, please let me know! I want it to be a useful and helpful feature! ;-) In the meantime, go check out my friend Carrie @ Carrie's Cooking; she's a kitchen whiz and she's posted about using planned leftovers right here.

:: Last, I need your opinion. Is the font face/color too small/light in color? I'm thinking the font could use a bit more *oomph* so it stands out better. Let me know what you think about the font and about the blog design/setup in general since I still have work to do behind the scenes; thanks.

Thanks for reading and subscribing to The New Frugal Mom!

    I like the green color for the linked items but I do think the font could be improved. I don't think it is the size but the font itself that is not 'bold' enough.

    Don't worry it is readable. But you asked... :)

    I like the font style but I think that it could be a little heavier in weight, a little darker.

    Carrie and Jennifer: You're reading my mind! I'm going to try bolding or going with a similar font that's heavier.
