I have been looking at other people’s websites and blogs for a long, long time. After months of deliberation, I am changing the look of everything. That means my website will be updated with a new look and some graphics as well as this blog.
Now, don’t get me wrong. I love this sexy, sexy picture on this blog. But I want – no need – it to reflect me and how I think. I don’t know anything about programming, nor do I really want to any more. I mean, yeah, over twenty years ago, I started as a hacker and moved up to what they called a power user. A power user is similar to today’s beta testers. I knew a little about programming and a little about testing. I could wing my way through minor corrections and understand what I was seeing. My real talents, even now, consist of the fact I can break anything and I see the big picture.
The big picture this time is me and my web presence. I want something people enjoy coming to and seeing. After a full month of promoting and writing every day on this blog, interest has waned. I can take it a couple of ways: 1) I’m not writing things which are really that interesting, which means I need to change it up and 2) my blog and websites are ugly. My personal opinion is that they are a little of both.
For right now, I’ve looked at the fact that I love what I’ve seen on Wordpress but I’m basically a lazy person and don’t want to change what I have. This means I have to get someone or myself to do something in blogger similar to Wordpress and incorporate everything I want in it. I also would love everything to match my website, blogger, twitter, MySpace, Facebook and any other social network I belong to at the moment. I belong to a few more but someone else owns them and I can’t change them at all.
All in all, this is a big dilemma for me as change is hard on anyone let along a writer. So today, I took one of my lesser known blogs and looked into the new templates Blogger has. All I can say is OMG! I don’t know what I was waiting for as far as that goes. Wait a minute, I know exactly what I was waiting for, time...I wanted a day to devote to playing with it...but I decided when I lost twenty pounds I would revamp my weight loss blog. You can go see it at http://journeyfromfat2fit.blogspot.com/ and I really shouldn’t say new. I’ve had the darn thing for almost three years as I try to win this battle. I might just do it this time...nope, wrong thing to say...I WILL make it this time.
So, let me ask you all a few questions: do you like erotic romance blogs to be plain? Do you like them with people? Or do you just want them to look nice and don’t care about the other graphics? See, I’m a widget gal and I just love the widgets on other people’s blogs. I’ve seen one with book covers and release dates, I’ve seen them where they track all my work-in-progress so you all know exactly where I’m at. What do you think would be cool in a blog?
Let me know...see you all tomorrow! And don’t forget to tell me about the new blog...I’d love your opinion!
