the new look....

Well I had been holding out for a year almost, not wanting to switch to blogger beta because I didn't want to lose that old template.

But then I started looking, and found that there are some beautiful people out there who can convert templates from wordpress to blogger. I didn't want to switch to wordpress, because I didn't want to loose everything. Now, I can have a nice looking blog (let's face it, wordpress templates are much cooler looking), AND keep my archives. Sounds good to me.

So what do you think? Any comments, ideas, suggestions?

I don't quite know what to do with that top box where I have the quote. I could put my title there, and put something else on the side. What do you think? Also, when you read my blog, can you see the "editing wrench" icon on the side?

**The beautiful people are: www.btemplates.com

"lose that old template."

i don't know what it is. it's only with you that i want to check spelling.

Spiro said...

editing wrench is only on there for you... at least when you're signed in.

is there a reason why no one has said that they LIKE IT so far?

i mean, it is awful. should i change it?

(the self consciousness starts)

Sharelle said...

i mean to ask:

IS IT awful?

not make a statement that it is.

oh crap.

I think the new design is an improvement and breath of fresh air.

Also, here's some "hot off the press" information that I know you'll be excited about: U2's new album now has a cover an tracklist. Exciting, isn't it?

I really like the template. I definitely have never seen anything like this while perusing wordpress templates, so I'm a little jealous... but I'm also picky about all the features.

I think this is a good updated look for you.

...and, I'm flattered to be on your sidebar!

"Color Paper"... very nice choice. I was shocked at first, since I had become very accustomed to your previous look, but I like it. You needn't be too worried about what other people think of your look. We think you're great and even if your blog was hideous (which it is not) we would still think you're great (though perhaps somewhat less aesthetically inclined).

Loving the new look. So notebook-ish. As in a real notebook, not the movie.
