Itchin' for a change.

Itchin' for a change.

Remember when I was talking about wearing the same make and style of boots year in and year out? The same obviously applies to the design of this place. I think it's from some free template a guy put together and donated to the common pot back when I launched this thing in 2002. It's not that I dislike change, I've just never really gotten around to updating the look around these parts. I've used various workarounds on the back-end to make things like titles appear (because this design doesn't natively suck them in) and re-size photos and videos and the like.

I've said it before, but I think the time has come to make a change. But when? I never really have free time, and the little free time I have is usually spent vegging out with GalPal as we both recharge our batteries from our busy lives. I don't really want to resort to another generic template, but I don't really know loads about making my digs look as personalized and nice as, say, here.

If anyone has any advice for me, or has a tutorial or site they've found particularly helpful when redesigning a Blogger site, lemme know!

just re-did mine but I find it so stressful I don't know that I can offer you any advice. I usually tweak free templates to be honest.

Are the templates your tweaking all in Blogger? If so I love how yours turn out all the time so it gives me hope! Or do they come from somewhere else?

I guess I haven't even dug in there in so long I don't even know what's offered. I keep thinking it's like the old days where there's a single layout take it or leave it...
