It’s getting on for 9 am but I’m not fully awake yet. All this getting-up at the crack of dawn to take my little bro to school is doing my head in. He was an hour late getting there today and even then I felt like I was going out in the middle of the night.
Of course, it didn’t help that I was up most of the night trying to sort out this blog. I just couldn’t stand looking at that template any longer, so I went on a hunt for a new one. I found a few that I liked, but they always had something that either didn’t work properly or wasn’t quite right. I finally found one I did like, but it had those ugly frames and there is no way I want those. I don’t stay long on sites with frames.
Anyway, I like to see one large expanse of type, it works better for speed-readers and as far as I’m concerned it looks better. Apart from anything else, I need as much writing space as I can get, not a silly little window that you have to scroll down every ten seconds.
There was one template I found which was really good, it had some quotation on it about “The Crazy Ones” which apparently is used in an Apple Mac advert and it did seem to describe me very well. Only trouble is, instead of it having a picture my glittery thingies, it had an empty input window which forced one of those damn QuickTime pop-up windows in my face every time I loaded my blog. I was able to get rid of it, but then I couldn’t get the rest of it to look right.
In the end I decided it was easier to create my own, so that’s what I’m trying to do. I will keep what little of the old one I wanted, which was basically just a few links, and did the rest from scratch. I’m trying to do it for few days now, and still can’t get it right; this theme thing is driving me crazy! I think it will look rather fetching and certainly better than the old one, once I figure out how to do it.
