When I started this blog, I chose a simple template, tweaked it a bit, and have been happy ever since. Sadly, now that the blog is growing up and becoming a REAL blog with REAL readers instead of a crazy lady standing in the middle of a room rambling to herself, things aren’t working out so well with this layout anymore. That means that change is inevitable.
Change and I don’t really get along so well.
If I still had the vim for web design that I once had, this wouldn’t be such a problem. I would either dig deep and figure out the bugs in this template and fix them or create my own template, love it, and be done with it. Since neither of those prospects appeals to me right now, I will take the easy way out – finding a new template, tweaking it, and hoping I don’t run into the issues I am currently having again.
Honestly, this path doesn’t appeal to me either. I really like my blog the way it is. Were it not for the pain in the arse plug-in issues that both my husband (the geek) and I (the slightly less geekily-inclined but still plenty geeky) have spent quite of bit of time trying to figure out, I would keep things just the way they are.
The fact is, I like blogging. I like it far more than I thought I would when I started this blog. I never had any intention of moving from being a person with a blog to being a blogger, but it is starting to seem like a good fit. Or maybe I’m just nuts and everyone reading this is thinking ‘Ugh, this girl may have a blog, but she is NO blogger!’ Heh. Either way, (I thank you for humoring me and) this blog is going through some growing pains and it’s time to make some changes.
I hope things go smoothly and I apologize in advance if they don’t. And here we go…
