Every time I think about making changes to this blog I’m afraid something will go horribly wrong, even if it’s a relatively simple change. So I procrastinate. I’m going to finally change the theme. I really like the pretty light blue theme and the beautiful picture of the mountains of southeast Oklahoma at the top (that’s another reason I’ve been procrastinating.) but I’ve been feeling like it’s not really me. I’m not sure the new one is going to be me either but I’m ready for a change. So here goes.
UPDATE: Okay it’s done. I used the WP Theme Generator to create this. I’m not entirely happy with it but I’ll keep it for a while and maybe try tinkering with it. I will add a picture to the sidebar sometime in the next few days and of course the link to my links page. I also need to edit that and my entry page to match.
UPDATE 2: Darn it. I guess I need to read up on HTML and CSS. I thought I knew how to do this but I can’t make the picture centered in the sidebar, I can’t make the tag line light grey and the link isn’t the color I thought it would be. Right now I’m going to forget about it for a while and go watch HGTV. Excuse the mess.
UPDATE 3: Well, the sidebar still isn’t exactly like I want it. The link to my links page is all the way down at the bottom for one thing and having the RSS link and the search thingie right in the middle doesn’t look right to me but every time I try to rearrange things the whole sidebar disappears.
On the positive side, I’m liking the look better. I played with the colors for a long time and couldn’t ever come up with anything that wasn’t either muddy or likely to be considered “too bright” by most people so I settled on muddy but now, after looking at it for a while I’m starting to feel like this is the right look for me. I hope everyone likes it because I think I’m going to stick with this for a long time.
