A Brief Update

As some of you may have already noticed, my blog has taken a drastic face lift. My beautiful template is no more!

It was a pre-made template you can find on the internet, so other bloggers are likely to have the same, but I fell in love with it and have used it for the majority of the time I've been bogging. From the start I've had issues with it, as originally it was intended for wordpress, not blogger - but I managed to deal with those issues, although they bothered me save for one, no one actually saw/or dealt with it. But I'm sure anyone who has visited here would have noticed the first post on the main page was never click-able. On Friday I posted my morning post and found that the bandwidth allocation for the hostsite of the template had exceeded, and I gave up on the template altogether. I'm not sure if it was quickly fixed by the host or not, but I made a quick decision and gave up. I didn't think about it I just did.

Personally it's been a long week, so having to deal with something like the blog template was something I didn't want to deal with nor, did I want to wait to see if/when it would be fixed, and I didn't like the idea of my blog being covered in broken images. So I changed it. I'm actually happy with the new look. It's all blogger related templates, and I've been able to play around with it to make it a little more "me". The gadgets are working like they should so now I don't have to do extra steps and what not to make them work. But there's still a few things I'm working on fixings, so please bear with me if things disappear or reappear. I'm going to poke away at it over the next little while. Change seemed fitting with the week it's been, adding to the good and bad changes in the life.

But don't worry new look, same Jules!

  2. I like the new look, and if there were so many problems with the old layout, I say good riddance! Nobody needs to spend hours trying to fix things like this when they could be reading, you know what I mean?

    1. Yes, it is better that I don't have to deal with some of the issues any more, and I don't even want to think what would have happened to the template when I switched to threaded commenting - which I love! And you are right, now more time for reading! The more I look at it, the more I am liking it, better than before - it's more simple.
