Blog changes

I've never really liked the look of my blog. It was always to crunched up. I've been playing with templates all day.

I found some 'stretch' ones that I really liked, but everything was still just there. Then I found one that stretched and highlighted!!
It's a little plain, but I don't want it to be too 'busy', so here is a new template, for a new year!

Hope it helps things look a little more organized!

Who knows, maybe later I'll even completely move my blog. I've been playing with wordpress, and I really like it. I've started a new blog over there, but I'm not ready to share it yet. It's not a personal one, completely different than what I have here. It serves a central purpose. When I get more work done on it, I will share!

I bought my domain on GoDaddy.com and installed the WordPress platform. There are HUNDREDS of pre-made templates to choose from. If you ever need help going that route, let me know. I would be happy to help!

I like your new look. Hmmm, probably because its similar to mine and I like the simplistic stretch look. Sometimes reading the smaller scrunched up blogs hurt my eyes. Weird. I tried Wordpress too and found several that I liked until I started typing posts and trying to move things around, then I found Google to be easier. Another way to get free backgrounds - look at Holly's blog, it has the link. http://2kidsandtiredcooks.blogspot.com/

Yeah, Bree's look is what inspired me to look for something new! I always thought you HAD to use the blogger templates. Now that I know you can use others, I'm searching again! It may change soon!

My main beef with google blogger is the pictures. I always get so frustrated trying to upload them and put them in order. It's why I haven't put any up in so long. But, I haven't tested it in wordpress yet. Guess I should do that before making any decisions!
