We have tried three new backgrounds in the past two days and thanks to the amazing Cari we are able to recover our blog back to the original way it was. Now the question is, which blog design have you liked best? Should we change our name to Little Red Reads and try a completely new blog template or go back to Fire and Ice, because it’s confusing to change names? After today’s vote here and on Facebook we are spilt in half between the old and new. Feel free to leave your comments below.

So yesterday when I logged onto our site there was a warning that our design would dissolve today. Blog background went poof! In my trials at change I”m not sure how to get it back. Hence, the new look. Still not sure I like it, but I was contemplating a different template and name. So our regular readers…we would love some input.
- Do you miss the old black and white damask background?
- How about the music list that autostarted? Yay or Nay?
- Should we change our blog button or do you like it the way it is?
- Should we do a complete blog overhaul or keep this one?
- Fire and Ice or Little Red Reads to match the name of our etsy shop?
- Any other comments?
- Have you had troubles in the past entering our giveaways via comments?
- Any other changes we should make to our site or the way we run things?

Allá afuera está mejor la cosa que acá, se ve bastante más que en las fotos.
“Una de las gracias de la montaña es que no importa lo que hagas, siempre te sientes realizado”
Somos seres llenos de pasión.La vida es desierto y oasis.
Nos derriba, nos lastima, nos enseña,nos convierte en protagonistas de nuestra propia historia.
Aunque el viento sople en contra, la poderosa obra continúa: Tu puedes aportar una estrofa.
No dejes nunca de soñar,porque en sueños es libre el hombre.
No caigas en el peor de los errores: el silencio.
La mayoría vive en un silencio espantoso.No te resignes. Huye.
“Emito mis alaridos por los techos de este mundo”,dice el poeta.
Valora la belleza de las cosas simples. Se puede hacer bella poesía sobre pequeñas cosas, pero no podemos remar en contra de nosotros mismos.
Eso transforma la vida en un infierno.
Disfruta del pánico que te provoca tener la vida por delante. Vívela intensamente,sin mediocridad.
Piensa que en ti está el futuro
y encara la tarea con orgullo y sin miedo.
Aprende de quienes puedan enseñarte. Las experiencias de quienes nos precedieronde nuestros “poetas muertos”, te ayudan a caminar por la vida.
La sociedad de hoy somos nosotros: Los “poetas vivos”. No permitas que la vida te pase a ti sin que la vivas …
(Walt Whitman, No te detengas)
