Time for a change

Well, it is time for a change. I have spent most of the day unable to get to my blog. I could get to my dashboard but I could not view my blog. I figured out that it had something to do with all of my Flickr photos, so they are gone. I already miss them, but change is good. Right?

I will just post more photos, and make up for them being gone. I hope to find a better template, but until then this one will have to do.

There are several of you out there that have great templates. SillyHily has a great one and I think she made it herself. I will learn how to do that one day. But until then, if you know of any where I can go on this world wide web to find a new template, let me know. Just leave it in my comments. Hopefully I will find one I like, and who knows some of you might just find one too.

Hey Julie, I almost didn't recognize you. I totally understand about not being able to get to your blog. Same thing happened to me last week, as you know. I just hold my breath everytime I sit down to my computer and hope that I still have a blog.

Hee hee! I like throwing you all for a loop. :) This is kind of growing on me. McD helped me pick it out. It will work until I learn how to make one myself. I really like Pam's and Silly's.

Oh and WT - yes, it is just a template blogger has out there for us. :) Thanks!!!

Hey Marnie!
Thanks! I looked on blogskins tonight and I even downloaded one, but have no clue as to how to apply it. Plus I have to figure out how to back up my blog. I keep hearing (seeing) people talk about it but can't find where to do it. I guess I am not going to worry about it for a bit.

Thanks! I am going to check out the Blog Makeover Diva. Just to look, not buy yet.

Pannasmontata
is where I got my template.
BUT... I took out their picture and put in my own. I also put my little duster in ...

But I haven't even looked at all the creative things like FLIKR etc... that some of you do.

I'm quite slow

Soon...when you hit Pensieve, you won't believe your eyes. I figure I've been doing this for a year (althought publically about six months), so I wanted something personal. Stay tuned, Julie Bulie, it's coming.

Change is good, but I did miss the familiarity of the "you" before this one :).

Karmyn, I miss them too. I have decided to include more photos. Some days there just might be photos and everyone can make up their own story. :)

Thanks everyone for your suggestions. I am writing them all down. This weekend fall break starts and updating the ol' blog is one of the things on my list.

Robin - you keep teasing, I am waiting. :)

Shauna, I believe photos are part of the problem that is why I changed. They won't be back like they were before.

And C, I will be watching for changes!! :)

Julie, I like your new look! The greens are terrific!

Oh, you have me sadly mistaken for some HTML genius. I did not make my template myself. No no. I wish! The credit is on the left side bar as to where I got it. They do a lot of pretty simple templates. All I did was copy and paste but I was still so scared of losing something that I was very proud when I changed my look all on my own. And I mean I copied and pasted all on my own. Someone else did the design. Hold on, and I'll find the page where I got it.

This is where I got my free template. (And the above comment was deleted by me b/c I didn't link properly.

I like the new look. Change is always good.
