playing with my template

Don't panic . . . I'm working on my template. If all goes well -keep your fingers crossed- I'll have finally managed to make something very, very close to what I've always had in mind. Yes, make it, as in by myself. If it doesn't turn out, well, we'll see how that goes. Wish me luck.

As it turns out, I'm an idiot. Yes. I. Am. I started this blog back in 2003. Yes, back when blogger was just blogger and had nothing to do with google. I've only ever upgraded anything that we were forced to. Meaning that I still had the old "classic" template style where you had to mess and mess with the code to make any sort of change. Well, I finally gave in and changed to the "new" template style. Oh. My. Goodness. It is soooooo easy! Why didn't anyone tell me?!?!?!?! You can just add links by clicking and not have to worry if you spaced it and remembered to put things like < li >. Oh, I've wasted soooooo much time. Why? (As I look up into the air, my hands balled up into fists)
I'm still not done with what I want to do. I'm trying to center my sidebar titles without actually centering the links and such. I'm giving up now because my eyes are shot and all I see is a bunch of jumbled letters.
Oh, and I also want to find a picture I really, really want. For now I'm sticking with crayons as that's what we're doing now. Can you believe my kiddies go back to school on Monday? Anyway, now I'm rambling . . . .

Well you got me curious!

Hey you think you have a side career as a graphic designer???

Yvett said...

Hardly, although I wish. I know nothing about design other than what I've learned through my blog and looking over templates that someone else has made. I would love to take a class though.

I would have done the same thing honestly. They go back to school already!!!

I so need update my template, too. How do you make your banner a picture though? I couldn't figure that one out.

Like the new look! I started my blog in 2001 with blogger. It took an act of congress to change the background and now it's all click, drag, voila!
