Blog Templates

I was getting sick of the layout of my green blog. It did not look polished and it was hard to see the pictures.

I tried to download a few different templates and to my frustration, not one of them worked! I really liked one called "A Day Without Chocolate" (pink and brown, quintessentially girly). However, this was saved to a zip file on my computer, which refused to unzip the template. I also liked a few off of Pyzam, which I have used successfully before. I could not get these to work, either. So I chose this simple but boring (and too masculine for my taste, frankly) template. The font is really small on the sidebar, but I think most of my readers are young with good eyesight. So, please bear with me as I work on my blog!

This post is also a request for help. Can anyone give me pointers on how to get a good blog template? My friend Brandy has a cute new look to her blog (adorable, sister, but I do agree with your father. Sorry :) Brandy, as usual, was an inspiration toward bettering my own blog. If you have never read her blog, get yourself either a cup of tea or a glass of wine and go here.

Glad I could help. :) In response to liking the old one better, I must say that I really did try to make the old one into three columns. That was what I had hoped for. But each time I tried, I failed. I am just not that savvy. So I found a three-column that I could handle, and went with it. Of course, I do like that it feels like spring. I may not be able to decorate my house, so at least I can decorate my blog! :)

But wine...sigh...I totally romanticize the idea of wine. I never aquired a taste for it, and I truly regret that. Now that I am usually pregnant, there isn't much chance for practice!

Hope you are well. Miss you, friend. I had hoped to see you at the co-op pickup last week...

Miss you too! We should be able to be at the get-together for an hour on Sunday.

I definitely like the "Spring" feeling of your blog. Do you have any advice for me on how to get a new template for my blog? Zip files are not working and Pyzam's HTML will not work either. Do I need to upgrade my blog I am confused.

We will co-op next month, I think. Husband a bit peeved at so many different grocery bills. :)

I definitely had to upgrade in order to get my new template to work. If the new templates are XML, or contain the word "widget" then you will need to press that little upgrade button.

If you want to come over someday, we could work on it together.

Well, someday next week. This week is pretty packed. :)

We will take the hour! We will be very glad to see you!
