New Home, New Look

Got intrigued with the title? No, it is not about me though I have this new look too because I had my hair permed three weeks ago. What I am referring to is my other site Mom’s Ups and Downs. It is now self-hosted, teehee! And because of that it deserves a new look. I am still saving for the personalized template so I just used the Twenty Ten template and customized it. I was surprised that it’s not that hard to tweak a WordPress template.

Here are what I did. I searched for free clip arts and and made the header using photoshop and so are the background and favicon. I changed the fonts and its colors by searching for the color html codes and tweaked the css file so it would match the color of the background and header. Voila! A new fresh looking site.

By the way, the girl in the header is from RJ’s picture which I made into a cartoon by coloring it in photoshop. It took me quite a long time to finish it but it is all worth my effort. The new layout made me think twice if I still need to order for a personalized one. What do you think?

The Author Behind Four Blogs


Thanks to Paula for this BC Bloggers’ Party. At least I got the chance to party even virtually and will get to know more of the BC Bloggers.

My name is Rosalie but my friends and loved ones call me Rossel. I am a loving wife to my hardworking husband Rhonnel and a mother to our pretty angel RJ. I resigned from work when I was 5 months pregnant and put up a small business through the help of my husband. From then on I became a work-at-home Mom.

I was an addict reader. I read everything, as in,  even the wrapper of smoked fish as my Mom would say. But when an old friend introduced me to blogosphere more than a year ago, I got hooked to it. I find blogging more fun and interesting as I am not only reading here, I am also sharing my thoughts and ideas.

This site is my first blog. I still remember the day I was thinking of a title for this one. I had 6 titles in mind but everything were already taken so I ended up with Topics on Earth. Why Topics on Earth? Aside from the reason that it was the only one available out of the 6 titles, I would love to post here all possible topics on Earth, except of course for pornography, violence and the like.
From then on three more blogs authored by yours truly emerged. Yes, that is how addicted I am.

The “Mom’s Ups and Downs” is my second blog. This is about my journeys, routines, views and opinions as a work-at-home Mom. I am posting here tips about parenting and share some of what I read about women, moms, family and kids. I would also love to share here our family’s day to day experiences.

 “Kitchen Essentials” is formerly named Kusina Ko. I once thought of giving up this blog for I find it hard to maintain 3 sites. When I finally learned how to manage my time and thought of posting again on this blog, it was hubby who suggested to change its name to “Kitchen Essentials”. I am posting here recipes, foods, kitchen tips, etc.

My latest site is “Arts, Crafts and More”. I love to draw and sketch whenever I have free time and I thought of sharing them. This is because I need your opinions to further enhance my works. I will feature here my daughter’s arts as well. She loves to draw like me and her drawings reminds me of my drawings when I was her age.

Despite all of these, I always find time for my family. I cook for them, do household chores and attend to their needs, play and draw with  my daughter, watch movies with hubby every night and I wake up early in the morning and prepare my husband’s things for the office even I stayed up until 2am blogging and blog hopping. I maybe an addict blogger but I am proud to say that I am also a very loving and caring queen of our home.
