Blog Blahs

I spent some time tinkering with my blog template tonight. Yeah, it's easier to just use the canned template that Blogger provides...but it's so blah. I feel generic. I've been to a number of new Mommy Blogs in the last week or so and I have blog envy. Most of them have cool custom graphics...so I made a small attempt to personalize my header.

I also updated my profile pic. It's a step in the right direction, but I'm still not satisfied. I need to jazz up the header some more. I think I'll go blog jogging again and look for more inspiration. Maybe being sick the last 2 weeks has just sucked all the creative energy right out of my body.

Wordpress blogs seem to be the most unique, individual ones. And I'd switch, but I don't want to lose people. My trouble is I'm lazy; it's just easier to leave things as they are than to change anything.

I start with the plainest template they have. That makes it simpler to 'upgrade'. I then change the size of the posting area/width of the blog (I like a little more room for posting my pics. Then I upload a different header, change the font/font color/header colors to match my header. I also change the background. Since I usually like a busy background, I then have to put a -different- lighter solid color under my post/sidebar. Viola! A custom blog that doesn't look like anyone else's AND it doesn't cost me anything other than an hour or so of work (which I usually spread out over a couple of days since I have a 'test' blog that I test stuff in before going live at my regular blog!

Want help? If I can help, just ask!

Your making some nice adjustments. I like what you've done so far. And no matter what the blog looks like, I'd wager most of us keep coming back just to read your entries!

And I'd wager that Two Write Hands is write. (Sorry, had to ...) We love Max and Ty. And you too. Don't matter what the outside looks like. Stopping by here is like going to a good friend's house for coffee.
Kind of random comment....I came across a blog of yours from 2004 about Mr.Ben Maxwell (MIA in maine), your English teacher. I assume it was the same one I was looking as your writing described my teacher! Anywho, found him in Maine and just got off the phone with him as I am planning a class reunion. I forwarded him your blog, thought he would appreciate it:)

Ben Maxwell here. I just sent you a message on here, but for some reason it is not listed yet - not sure how long it usually takes.

Would love to hear from you

Well.

Wow.

I guess enuff said, huh?

You are who you are to your friends (online or not), and that's that. I think after you get to know a person (online), you don't care about the fireworks. You just care about the soft mmcenter.
