So, I’ve been messing about with my blog, yet again. I must have test driven about seven themes on and off, over the last few days. It’s been a nightmare and I’ve skulked back to some earlier themes, for the sanctuary and that familiar feeling.
But, I feel like a failure if I give in and resort to the tried and tested. So, I’ve bravely and rather ridiculously pushed on, with my half-finished blog. With my widgets that were neither here nor there and the damn and blasted Twitter feed, or whatever the thing is called, which was broken again. MY TWITTER it said, and then resolutely refused to show you my Twitter. Not that you’re missing anything particularly mind-blowing. I just wanted it to work… again!
Tea time today found a completely different theme at work. But, it had funny heart-shaped things at the edge of the posts and it insisted on putting the sidebars under the main page? Whatever! It had to go. It was too minimal and so not me. I do messy and clutter.
My Twitter works on here now and thank god for that – hey? I just need to get my gallery sorted and my published work behaving again and I might just have cracked it. That can wait until tomorrow… I need wine!
Why, put myself to all of this trouble?
Well, these days I can’t move the furniture around in my house as readily as I used to. Pre the bad back and headache days, I would routinely move the sofa around the lounge. The bed would be sited in north to south and west to east positions, on a monthly basis. And a lot of the furniture re-arranging would be done on a night-time, as I was a night owl.[ And my thyroid gland worked properly in those distant days.] I bet my neighbours absolutely adored me!
What’s a girl to do when the urge for a change looms large? The snowdrops are out and the birds are starting to flutter their feathers at each other. It’s still winter, but a bit of spring cleaning on here won’t go amiss and whilst I’m about it, let’s really mix things up. Then I can go bog-eyed putting it all back together again.
Yes, I’ve been the Humpty Dumpty of the blogging world.[ And If I don’t lose some more weight soon, I’ll be the real Humpty Dumpty!]
A new look it is then and in a few weeks, days, hours it could be another new look… for the blog and moi.
Change is good… even it drives you demented at the time.
How about you?
Does this time of the year make you want to change things around a bit?
How often do you change your blog’s theme?
I do eventually respond to comments when I :
- Find them
- Realise, with horror, that I’ve missed them
- Finally, get my act together
Thanks for taking the time to stop by here. Have yourself a great Tuesday evening.
Until the next upheaval.
