A Look Back @ My Blog

I've been wanting to do this for a while. Originally I was planning on doing a blog rewind on my one year blogversary. But I was thinking so much about my bloversary giveaway that I toootally missed the anniversary itself. I'm so lame sometimes. Anywho... This blog has been through a lot of makeovers.. Much like it's mother...But that's the fun of it I think. My blog reflects my chameleon like sensibilities--
No. Wait a minute. What's the animal that can change its appearance at the drop of a hat? Oh yeah, an octopus. Yup. Sometimes I'm an octopus... Meow! Anyyyywho. Back to my blog.....Here are the various phases Janette the Jongleur has been through:

Here's my first blog header ever.. Actually.. It's not. I can't find the original so I made a replica. Does anyone remember it!!? I think the only people following me at the time were Amy Lou Who, A Brilliant Melody, and Hearted Girl! WOW!



PS. I used to spell my name "Jeanette" to give it more of a Frenchish flair since "jongleur" is a french word... Weird and confusing, I know!


Remember my subtitle? "Say it with a French accent. It's fun." Bahahaha! I'm so corny. But really it was fun!


Now here's the deal...There are soooo many blogs that I started following when they were already well established and professionally made over... But I would loooove to see how they were in the very very beginning... May I see your first blog header please!?????  Or your second or third? That would be something cool to see... No matter how cheesy, I think you should share your header history...Yup! I do!

Please let me know if you do this so I can check it out!
Many thanks!

  1. I really like all your past headers! The little fabric cut out one is my fav.
    My blog is still new so I don't really have any old headers to post :(

  2. I remember all of these!
    I wish I would have kept all of mine. They all sucked though, haha. They still do. I can't figure out how to put things on blogger. Also I am to lazy to figure it out. I'm sure that I could figure it out eventually.

  3. Such a cool idea!! I've been following since your 2nd header... :) Your "say it with a french accent" is what made me love you from the beginning....do you remember that I sent you an email about how cool that was? :) I say you bring that little tagline back!!! :) I need to do this with all my previous headers. I change so often, I'm a fickle one. ;) ahem...I just changed it again yesterday. Sheeesh.

  5. I was planning on posting old blog headers on my blog anniversary. But then I forgot about it and this post just reminded me! Thank you for that because the anniversary was yesterday!!
    I have no idea though if I'll find the old headers...

  9. I'm so bad at saving things in an organized manner. I have no idea where my original header is saved. My blog used to have a different title back in the day.

  11. When I was going through Picassa and it's awfulness (kidding. Not.) I saw my first blog header on their and I laughed out loud and how cheesy cheese it was. Then I started thinking about all the changes my blog has been through. So it's crazy you just posted this! Great minds, obviously. =]

  17. I had just looked at Pia's post like this too (and then read her comment. haha!). So fun! If I still had all my old headers, I'd share them. But I don't... :/

  18. If you look at my blog page you will see my very first header that I made! I am *very* late on the "pretty your page up" bandwagon. I did it about two weeks ago and it's still not quite right but I'm too lazy atm to fix it. By the time I get round to it, I may have worked out how to do another makeover for my page!

  19. wow your first header is so much better than my first. I tried in vain to draw a pic in the paint program on my computer and lets just say I really cant draw :)

  20. I just re-did my blog again!! Just a few changes. I've had so many different headers throughout the last two years. Maybe I'll show a few, too :)

I generally reply by email, unless you are a No-Comment-Reply Blogger.
Thank you for making my day!
Love,
