The most obvious one is our new background, header, and Twitter background. They are all (free!!) from The Cutest Blog on the Block, who has all sorts of free templates, backgrounds, buttons, headers, and other things. I know our new background is very different from our old one, but I like it! It's cute and light, and I sort of love chevron.
We also added a "back to the top" button on the bottom right corner thanks to a tutorial from The Vintage Apple. I think this is such a handy button to have! It's super easy to install, and she does a great job of guiding you through the steps. I would definitely recommend installing one on your own blog!

We also now have Related Posts at the bottom of each post, thanks to nRelate (and thanks to this article on why you should maybe switch from LinkWithin, which most bloggers use). You can actually customize nRelate with their different options, so that's pretty cool too. They also have some other widgets, like Popular Posts and such.
We also added Pin It buttons to our pictures. If you hover over a picture, a Pin It button will appear on the top right corner. Only clicking on the icon will pin it, clicking anywhere else will take you to where the photo is actually linked, if it has been (usually Goodreads). Thanks to this tutorial from BloggerSentral.
And lastly, we created an Apple Icon, thanks to this super easy tutorial from Creative Kristi. If you have an iPhone/iPod touch/iPad, you can go to Safari and add a bookmark, and it will have a cute little icon!
P.S. This was our old icon. Which do you like better?
The back to top arrow, Pin It button, and Apple Icon were created by me using Picmonkey.
