Every so often an overwhelming desire for change surges through my bloodstream, raising my blood pressure and squelching my good sense. The results are seen in my living room’s reconfigured furniture, my hair’s uneven locks, and now my blog’s facelift.
Everyday I see blogs sporting seasonal wallpaper, blinking bling, and eye-catching fonts; however, I’ve determined that these flashy looks are not suitable for the domestic fringe. It’s simple; I use too many words, but you already knew that. If my words had to compete with sparkly pink wallpaper, I would need to include a warning from the surgeon general.
WARNING: Migraines, Blurred Vision, and Strokes possible
Recently I found myself twiddling my thumbs while waiting for my dog to chew her way through my kid’s toybox, so I took a fashion quiz. My personal style results were ‘Urban Classic’.
Translation: I live in a city and wear other people’s old clothes.
I’d like to think I dress my blog a little like I dress my bod – clean and classic with a few embellishments to keep reader’s from falling asleep.
Giving my blog a facelift is something I have considered for as long as I’ve contemplated having liposuction on my thighs; however, liposuction requires oodles of cash and anesthesia, whereas a new layout is only a click away. I like the three columns because I can post three items in one day (not that I will) and you can see them all at once.
The big question – Do YOU like it?
Is it still easy on your eyes or does it make your brains cells scramble, sending signals of impending doom to your pupils?
Here are a few navigation tips for the one confused blog reader (me).
* Click on the post title to enlarge the column into a full size page.
* Click on the small ‘thedomesticfringe’ title or the large ‘the domestic fringe’ title at the top of the page to return to the main, three column page.
* Comments are left by clicking on the red ‘comment’ button at the bottom of each column. Comments are always welcome and appreciated. In other words, SPEAK!
* The archives are listed by month at the bottom of the main page, so you can read my entire life story. (That’s for the one person who has no access to the library and real writing.)
* Other blog links are located at the bottom of the first column.
I think that about covers everything. Feel free to ask any questions or leave comments and suggestions. If you hate the new look, tell me. You do read and I want to keep you happy, or else I’ll only be writing for my mother.
In other news, the ‘reader survey’ page will be disappearing later today and my baby story will magically appear in its place. My baby story is like the Reader’s Digest condensed version of my second pregnancy; however, I used more words than Mr. President will probably use in his State of the Union address. This story will only be accessible for one week and then it goes into a nine month gestation. If you are compelled to read, creative criticism is welcome.
Blogger, the evil tool practically every blogger in the universe uses, hates me. For the past two days, I cannot make ANY comments on any blog that uses Blogger. So when you decide that you hate me too for not reading your blog, know that it’s blogger’s fault.
Why do you hate my words Blogger? I only leave kind comments. Is it because I love WordPress?
Enjoy your day!
