Biting the bullet

Well, I did it. I've been thinking of it for months now but decided that maybe I would play safe and wait a bit longer, but last night, I took the bull by the horns and changed my template. It was easier and far less fraught than I expected. Memories of my early days of blogging had put me off a bit. Those were the days when I would plunge in, without backing up the blog first, in the sublime confidence of the novice that all would be well and I would get to grips with the html without too much trouble; I was consistently proved wrong in that, of course!
But last night's venture was easy by comparison. The purists may claim that the new format is too constraining but these days, I'm happy with that. The main thing putting me off was the thought of having to re-do my blog links and of course, I did pick the one day that Blogrolling was having its annual makeover, meaning I had to search for links through other links, so if I have inadvertently missed anyone off, apologies in advance and please let me know.
In the meantime, I'm off to play with the add-ons!

  1. ...and it looks fab and some of the add-ons are cool :o)

    ....tho the new widgety templates drive me nuts. I've tried to convert a couple of times becasue I wanted the 'slideshow' but as far as editing html is concerned it just makes it a whole lot harder, so for now I'm digging my heels in and not changing. ;o)

  4. I love it, Jenny.

    I tried to update a while ago but got in a right mess when I tried to add in my little clocks and temperature things so went back to the old layout.

    I'd like to try again though as I'd love the wider text area for one thing.

    Good on ya, girl.

  5. Well, Ian, fingers crossed and all but up to now I haven't had any problems. I expect that will be the signal for it all to fall apart now. ;)
