New & Improved... or just, new?

Well, guys... I was sitting on my couch last night, trying to figure out what I could post about that was spiritually edifying (since my posts have been on the "fun" side lately)... and Kristi started IMing me. She had many questions about blog templates, adding color to fonts, and changing the look of the entire deal. She insisted that it was so difficult and challenging, and I told her that it really wasn't too bad...

About 15 minutes later, she told me she was messing in the templates section and that her whole blog was getting changed. I told her I was happy for her and disregarded her excitement. I had just come from about 2 hours' worth of work in the computer lab at school, coding text tracts and captions into a Quick Time movie with chapter lists. While that is all fun and great, I had my fill of "coding" and reading jibberish language for the evening.

Well... evidently, I hadn't. Curiosity got the better of me, and I began a 2 hour rampage of switching templates, messing with colors, fonts, sizes, etc., and clicking "Preview" many-a-time to get a somewhat new blog style going on. Now, before my design critics make a comment, I realize that my colors don't all necessarily match perfectly, but they work for the purpose, right? There are only so many web colors to choose from. I found a very helpful color coding website that allows you to create your own colors, and it tells you the according color code. Very useful.

Ok... so, for some reason, none of my links carried over, which is really buggy. I'll get those Edit-Me's fixed ASAP and tidy the place up, and it will be a happenin' blog in no-time.

Alright, I love ya'll and I'll be back real soon.

p.s. I owe my new blog style to this girl who went color-happy tonight, and also is going for a new look.

Thank you for "disregarding my excitement" dork. I like your new look. I think I like it better then mine... maybe I'll go in and change mine because apparently mine has huge pink blobs...according to Scott.

I like the new look! I thought it was a little bright until I decided to check out Kristi's. I had to get my shades out to read her's! No, I like them both. If I was more of a geek, I'd change mine too. But I'm not. So it'll stay boring.

it looks great! html coding is such fun, isn't it? well, it's much easier when you're just tweaking a template rather than writing your own.
