Loss Comes with Change...

It's been a very long time, over a year in fact, that I've had the same template on here.  Since that time, Blogger has experienced a boom in the amount of templates they are offering for backgrounds.  I find it funny that by "boom" I really mean they've gone from like 5 options (with 5 sub-options) to somewhere around 10 (with about 20 sub-options) - ooh, advancement!  *sarcasm*

For me, I've always looked outside the box for my templates.  I find one that I like and then I tweak it to how I want it to work.  (Read: I cut out all the attachments and add-ons that come with someone else's homemade template, and by doing so I have taught myself a whole bunch about reading HTML codes!)

After my diatribe a few months back about leaving it (my blog style) alone for awhile, I've now full out changed it.  I'm a girl, you should just expect that!  Now, I'm forced to deal with the annoying issues that come with change.  You're probably wondering, "What are those?"  Well, let me tell you!  Disappearing everythings, that's what!  Friends blogs have vanished.  People I followed have *poof*ed into thin air.  It's incredibly agitating.  Instead of enjoying the changes I've begun I am now forced to piece it all back together.  Good times.

I figured it out!!! AAaah!!! I'm so excited. Stupid thing made my picture faint, but I rewrote the html and fixed it. Sorry, I'm just impressed that on my own I edited more code then I knew I could.

Well, here I am.
I managed to make it to your blog.

Congrats on figuring it out!
Don't you just love it when it works out that way? Html is great that way, it lets smart amateurs puzzle things out. Like Myst but with a higher success rate. : j

The new layout is... stylish.
I reckon that someday I may have to revamp my blog too; but by then, I'll be retro enough to be cool (without using refrigeration).

I love the Myst comment! Hee hee! Overall, I was in a hurry and I don't even think I like this layout. I wanted to use my picture and I didn't want it to be see through. I should've just played with the html on my old layout. I like that one better.

We'll see what happens. If I find that old one though... it will return!
