Yes, it's a new look.

Thursday, July 31, 2008

And no, you can't see it if you have my blog in an RSS feed. This annoys me. I didn't even used to know what an RSS feed was. I just like my blog. It's a room of my own that I can redecorate as I like - not like the rentals I've lived in for the last 8 years or so.

So why bother making a pretty blog if no one looks at it? (Ahem... This is your cue to come visit me, if you get my posts on RSS. *wink*)

I like to make my blog welcoming, to give you a feeling when you visit it. I love colors and pictures, things that I can't put into words.

Granted, I change my blog look a lot. Why? I guess because my mood changes. Because I think of something new that I want to try. Because it's like getting dressed in the morning. I totally dress by color. Because it is an obvious reminder to me that at least I have gotten something done. Because when I am really stressed, all I want is to see happy colors and pretty pictures.

Whatever the reason for this change (I'm still checking with my people about that), this particular template is special. Every image I used is my own work, from the header to the background. I decided that I should start using my own stock images instead of using Google images. You will also note in my footer that this blog is a customization. I don't write templates yet. Yeesh. Who has time to figure that out?

Anyway, for all my schizophrenia, do enjoy.

Any ideas for a name for this skin?

Very pretty look! I like your idea that this is a room you can redecorate whenever you wish. We rented for years before buying a home, too. You have a lot of creative energy!

My immediate thought for a name: peaches 'n cream. But then again, I'm a bit hungry at the moment... ;-)

I love the gentle roses! (Okay, guess that's my name suggestion...)

I read through an RSS feed, but I always click through whenever you mention that you've changed the look of the blog. Lovely!

Well, MY thought was "Tangerine Rose" but that might be a little oblique.
