Blog Beautification *

Hola! What do you think of my shiny new RSS button at the right bottom corner of my page? Thanks to my buddy LJ, I now have a new Fave Mariuca Technorati button and a Subscribe to Mariuca button! :)

While visiting LJ yesterday, I noticed the new RSS button on display at LadyJava's Lounge. It was truly the cutest thing ever and I was instantly captivated. I knew then that I had to have it at both my blogs! Look wise, I think it is simply awesome. Plus, it makes a wonderful subtle reminder for your readers to fave or subscribe to your blog.

So when LJ offered to help put up my own buttons here at Wishing On A Falling Star, I was of course thrilled! See how cute and shiny they are? Thanks LJ, I love it and Mariuca looks even prettier now! :)

Orange & Green for Mariuca

Pink & Blue for MPG

Having seen how a simple tiny button can add colour and excitement to your blog, do you feel like jazzing up your new year with some minor blog tweaking or perhaps even a brand new makeover? All you have to do is drop by my three favourite blogs below. Each one provides blog makeover services of individual style and expertise. Take some time to discover what they have to offer. You'll be truly delighted with the end product, no matter which card you click! :)

Jean for a cool clean makeover.

Feels like I haven't chopped here in forever... busy busy with the holidays here in the Roxiticus Valley... today we had all of Rex's family over for a second Christmas celebration. Now all's quiet and I'm out and about in the blogosphere but starting to nod off myself.

I like your cute little buttons that LJ installed here... headed over to check out pink and blue on MPG.


Mariuca December 28, 2008 11:31 AM

It does feel like forever Roxy! Glad to hear you're making the most of ur holiday, though u must be really busy entertaining yeah? I hope u have a helper to help with the cooking. ;)

Oh thanks Roxy, I love my buttons too, they're so cool and cute! :):):)

Hi GP!
Just stopping by to see myself smiling out from your EntreCard widget today... hope Bree brings you good luck, maybe soon BlogExplosion will respond to your ticket and you'll be back in the Battle of the Blogs business.
Happy Music Monday!

Exciting news!! Rex just came in from the mailbox with a package from Malaysia...BEAR-iuca is here! BEAR-iuca is here!

London and Maddie are cuddling him up and making a schedule of whose bed he sleeps in each night.

Thank you, thank you, thank you...

A good Sunday!

Anonymous,  December 29, 2008 6:14 AM

mariuca! your small pretty buttons really look lovely. yesterday when i was dropping my entrecard here, i had to stop when i saw those new buttons. their cuteness is very distracting! :)

hope you had a wonderful christmas, as well as the coming new year!

Mizé December 29, 2008 9:07 AM

Hi. The buttons are so cool!
And the placement is ideal, it´s a nice feature to fill the blue in the side.
I like the star with a smile.

Monica December 29, 2008 3:37 PM

I like the pink one! so cute..;-)

Monica December 29, 2008 3:42 PM

yup; LJ's designs have a sense of style and sophistication..I love it!

Shemah December 29, 2008 7:50 PM

Hey, Marzie.. yeahh.. I did notice those two new buttons!! :) Pretty cool!!

I agree with how you described the 3 creative awesome ladies there! I really appreciate people who know they're way around styling and coding and what not. I am totally useless at all this! LOL!

Jackie December 29, 2008 8:32 PM

Love the new buttons :)

Popped in to say I am passing on the Lemonade Award to you. Details are at .

There is an award awaiting for you on my blog.

Just before I go ... Happy New Year to you! Best wishes from Polly.

Bobby Revell December 30, 2008 9:18 AM

Hi's London, Maddie, and BEAR-iuca dropping by at bedtime in the Roxiticus Valley. BEAR-iuca is sleeping in London's bed tonight. The girls are so cute about sharing him, and they are taking such good care of the little guy. He's a terrific conversationalist, as it turns out...


Anonymous,  December 30, 2008 10:30 AM

Oh, by the way, I don't do ANY of the cooking, Rex does it all except baking, which the girls help me with... we made lots of holiday cookies and pumpkin bread. Only a few left for you.


Mariuca December 30, 2008 11:44 AM

Thanks Liza, I love my buttons too YAY! :)

Mariuca December 30, 2008 11:51 AM

Hi LR! Thanks for checking out my new buttons, it's been a couple of days now but I'm still not tired of admiring them LOL! :)

Mariuca December 30, 2008 11:54 AM

Hi Roxy! Oh I seriously doubt BE will take me back, fed up to the max already! I know I am at their mercy, but still...this is really too much! How much longer do they want me to wait? Another 6 months before they reject my resubmission? Oh GP is not a happy camper abt this! :(:(:(

But thanks so much for ur kind thoughts, I hope BE will listen to ur words and approve Mariuca soon. :)

Mariuca December 30, 2008 11:56 AM

What are you doing to ring in the New Year?

Thanks for your New Year's wishes!


Anonymous,  December 31, 2008 10:22 PM

Do you have any New Year's resolutions? I've got less than 15 hours to make mine...but I'm still thinking about starting a Blogosphere Buddies Resolution Support Group on my blog.

I had a whole fitness plan laid out that involved losing 15 pounds over 25 weeks to go from 145 to 130 pounds...and then fatty fatty bobatty tipped the scale this morning at 150!! What a New Year's treat.
