HTML is My Friend, Good Buddy

*Looks around*

So. Notice anything different? (You, with the fancy schmancy reader, click over, will ya'? Thanks!) Anybody want to know what I've been doing all weekend?

I didn't think so. But I'm telling you anyway.

Can I get a woot for a blog color scheme and header that feels a little bit more like home? No? Fine, I'll do it myself. WOOT! I've still got some tweaking to do (I'm not married to the font, for example), but overall, I'm pretty proud of myself. ESPECIALLY since I finally updated the blogroll and did a new About Me page.

A bit of business regarding the blogroll--I know I'm still missing a few peeps. If you're one of them, email me or leave a comment, would ya'? I've said it before, and I'll say it again. My brain is old and feeble, so it's not good at things like remembering people and copying and pasting their url. I need pushed on occassion. Also, if you're on my blogroll, I'm making it your job to make sure your link goes to you and not that midget porn site that I like to look at all the time (I kid, I kid. I hardly ever look at midget porn.)

I'll be back in a little bit to expound on something from the About Me page. Apparently it's FASCINATING that Mr. Husband likes to bring home random animals. Who knew?

  1. Woot! It looks GOOD. I need to do this. The problem is I don't know how to start....

    I'm thinking Photoshop? Maybe?

    Pray tell! Either way LOVIN' IT!

  2. Screw Photoshop, Leanne. Picnik.com is a good place to start to manipulate photos. It's more user friendly and FREE. (Emphasis on the FREE, of course.)

    The title is totally a shout out to Karen, btw. She left a hysterical comment on the post about how to edit the Blogger html last week. 10-40, good buddy.

  7. I made a funny - and it made your title! Lovin' it. :) And I totally caught that finger pointing to me with my fancy schmancy Google Reader. I'm so proud of me.

    I'm lovin' your new look immensely and am also getting the picture that your husband is the biggest softie EVER.

  8. Woot! and Ya-hoo! Thank you so much for adding me to the blogroll and the link works!

    How do you get a separate page for your blogroll and stuff? I keep coming up with more items to put in my sidebar and it's getting too busy. I love how you have it set up.

  10. I clicked over earlier and noticed the new look, it looks greats! Job well done WOOT!

    I second the picnik.com comment, that's what I use to make headers as well, definiely more user friendly :-)

  11. Okay first off, I am a big doofus, and I am fully aware that my blog layout is totally boring, because I am technologically challenged (oh, and lazy). Secondly, I applaud your ability to embrace change, and I love almost all of the new look.
    Thirdly, the font reminds me of Miami Ink for some strange reason, so it kinda bugs me. (I am always honest)
    Fourthly, who cares what I think? It's your blog! It's all good. I'd read it if it was neon orange and had a backdrop of snakes and bats.

  12. Deb--Each page is just a backdated blog post. I'm sure it screwed up a few Readers doing that, but it served the purpose, which was to clean up the sidebar.

  13. Jen--That's it! That's what bugging me about the font! I've been trying to put my finger on it all day. Thank you for your full honesty. I already planned on changing it, I just don't know what I'm going to use instead.

  14. Wow, you changed things around again!! How exciting!! Love it! And thanks for adding me to your blogroll! :)

  15. It looks great! Very easy on the eyes.

    One thing, when your graphics don't load and you are left with just a link, your about me link is called friends.

    Not a big deal though.

  17. OMG! I LOVE what you have done with the place!! I can't believe you did this in blogger. I'm TOTALLY MOTIVATED NOW! I bookmarked your instructions last week so I can go back to them--is this still the Mr. Moto template? AWESOME!! :)

    ReplyDelete
  18. Still Mr. Moto. I want a whole new template, but I haven't found anything I like better, so Mr. Moto gets to stay.

  26. You get woot woot from me! I love the pics on the buttons on the left side. I'm not too fond of the font either. I kinda takes too much attention away from the pictures. And...my link goes to the wrong page. Oops.
