Blogger introduced some new templates last week which have been taking my blogroll by storm. They're fully reactive, have drop down menus and featured posts and a thousand and one other options to make your blog zing. I've struggled with a look for this blog since I returned, and thought a shiny new one would be the solution.
I backed up my template and got to work fiddling with a design. Golly gosh, the options! There were 14 different text widgets, for each of which you can set individual colours, fonts, sizes, backgrounds...I got bored quickly; and saved what I had.
And that, dear reader, lunched my blog. I had to do a restore of everything.
The importance of knowing who you are, eh? I like the simple, pared down, uncomplicated life. I blog because I like 'scrapblogging' my days, musing about simple living, reading other people's 'scrapblogs' about simple, frugal living - and just perhaps I can be a bit useful to someone somewhere, just as the blogs I read are to me.
We're back to the aptly named 'Simple' template. I will tweak it a bit in the coming days, and that will be that. This doesn't need to be a slick operation, it just has to be readable, navigable, and pleasant enough to look at. Just like life really!
