Amaranth: Food or Fiend?

As usual, I spent a portion of my day grocery shopping. I have become more intrigued by different products being marketed that people are eating, so I now will walk more isles to see what options are out there. Today, I had to stop dead in my tracks while in the organic section. I don't usually buy organic because

1) I know how it is produced and don't typically care about the difference
2) Am not into the whole "surplus marketing" thing 
3) What I eat is just as healthy anyways.

But, nonetheless, I wanted to see what was on the shelves. One product I found today gave me a little surprise. Within the grain and cereals section, there sat some bags of Amaranth.

Caroline's Cues Face Lift!

Finally! It has only taken me months, but I have renovated by blog site. If you may recall, it used to look something like this.

Sometimes, I wonder what I was thinking making it all pink and no imagery! That's one common design rule broken. Now, as I try to increase my postings and sharing information, I thought it might be beneficial to change my branding.

It seems many companies and organizations are changing their branding strategies nowadays. What is this movement? Well, it's catering to you, the reader/consumer/customer. Do you think my new layout and background is easier to read, more unique and descriptive for me? I think so compared to the above!

Do you remember when Google changed their logo and people noticed? It may have been slight, but it was to "modernize" and clean up their look, I think. And it worked.

But, besides the look, what draws you in to a page or a company to learn more? Content? I hope that through my blog, you can gain some insight not just into my life, but also the world around us that we all experience. My key topics are ones I find important and hope you might too.

What do you expect from me as a blogger? Are there any topics/ideas you would like to share? Please comment below and thanks for joining me in this face lift.
