Ch-ch-ch-changes

If you visited my blog in the past four days you may have noticed a theme. Or actually, several different themes. That's right, the changing of the seasons inspired me to do a little blog sprucing up. Since I have no html skills, and no web designer friends, that meant trawling the Interwebs for a blog template. Now, I like to think I have seen a lot of blogs, and that I know what bloggers like in a look. However, I must have been wrong, because blog template designers think they like crap. Really, if I saw one more misty, swirly, kind of disco, but with a Precious Moments touch template I was going to throw my laptop out the window.

I thought about making a bug change and adding a little more color, a little more whimsy, but in the end decided I wanted people to actually recognize the place. If you stumbled onto one of the "whimsical" try outs I am sure it was like walking into a bar, only to be greeted by a florist. I'm sorry. It won't happen again.

So, I hope you like the new look. If you don't, just wait until the spring...

Sounds like my blog then. ;)

Fortunately for me, the Unbearable Hotness Of Robert runs my blog, and changes things every so often. So I never have to think about it, which is good, because I'm pretty sure that Meg has a longer attention span than I do.

Yeah, not feeling the Precious Moments templates, either. Even the ones that appeal to me end up frustrating me because I cannot work well enough within the theme to tweak it the way I want it. I've decided that less is more. It's about the words.

I wish I had someone to move me over to wordpress with no effort on my part. Until then, I'll just keep my yellow wallpaper-y background, which is thankfully lacking in whimsy (since whimsy makes me nauseous).

Let me just say, "I really like what you've done with the place."

Misty, swirly, kind of disco, but with a Precious Moments - yeah, I can see why you would not want your blog to echo your home decor.

Where's the music that starts blasting as soon as I come to your blog?! That's a stellar blog must-have!
