Playing Around With Blogger

I got sent an email last month about New blogger templates. Pictured templates and even 3 or 4 columns. You costumize everything to your own taste. They have many options to choose from.

Go to Blogger Template Disigner. Where is says "Try it now" click on the link and click on the template designer tab and there ya go. It even has a preview of your page right there, you can see your changes as you make them.

I really liked it and thought I would give it a whirl.

Soo, what do ya think? Tell me what needs to be changed. Is the text to light? Is the link colors seeable? (Hmm..is that a word?)

Am I still playing it safe or should I go wilder? LOL! I did see one that was a little crazy, maybe I should shake things up in here! Okay I better stop, I'm cracking myself up!

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

In other news for today...I am going to have another neice in August. I know yall are probably thinking I am too old to still be having neices and nephews. Well, lets just say..daddy was still dishing out kids even after I should have been. LOL!

I re-did mine a couple of weeks ago using the new blog designer. I had always wanted a 3-column set-up but when I saw it I decided the two column was right for me. It's all so easy to change anytime you get bored. Way fun!

What are these? Grapes?? They're not red grapes...they're almost transparent grapes! What made you think of grapes? Are you hungry? Do you want a peanut butter and jelly sandwich?? This is making me want some WINE.

Go figure.

Aunt Heather I like it very much. I can atchaly read it much better than last time. The only thing that makes me wonder is the grapes. When I read the blog it makes me hungry for grapes.

I am liking it! The colors are warm and inviting and definitely are easy on the eyes. Kudos for all the mad 'puter skills. :)

You did a great job with the new look. Congratulations on the new addition to your family, as well.

Well it seems that the majority really like the easier to read text, but then there is the issue of making people hungry for grapes.

Although BOO being hungry for grapes really isn't a bad thing, at least it isn't something bad for you.

Laufa was right I was going for the idea of Welch's grapes.

Yes Kathryn, they are a little see thru. I hadn't noticed that, they are kinda spooky see thru.

Maybe I will have to find another background, we'll see.
