Blog Blahs

ETA: Blog has been updated as of about 5pm EST. I like it now, but of course still welcome any and all suggestions. Unless they're rude. ;-)

For someone as technologically ignorant as I can be, starting a blog may not have been the brightest idea.  But, a year later, I'm still here, so I guess I'll soldier on.  =)  My current problem is that I don't like the way my blog looks - yet I have no idea what to do about it.  I don't know enough to design something on my own, and everywhere I've looked to have someone else design it for me, it's either ghastly expensive or the layouts are so..... girlie!

I realize that women probably blog a lot more than men - we do, after all, seem to like to talk more, and share more.  But still.  Not all of us are the swirly script and roses type.  Most of the blogs I read have layouts that are seemingly fitting for the particular writer behind the blog, so I know you guys (gals) must have some insight here.

Help me out.  I need a makeover.


  1. I'm kind of in the same boat, I'd love to have mine professionally done but I don't care to spend the money to do so. Ha ha, doesn't work so well, now does it? I've just always played with the templates and layouts in my software and changed it around until I get a look I like. There's still things I want to change and make better but until I'm ready to buck up the cash, I'll just keep fiddling.

    1. I like your blog! Love the picture at the top. That's really what I need. A good picture as a header. =)

  2. Do a search on Etsy for themes. There are some there at reasonable prices. It's where I got mine from.

  3. I'm pretty challenged. I have WordPress and I do everything myself as far as the header and stuff but that is about the extent of what I can handle.
    I like the new header!!

  4. Check out Erin She can help & pretty reasonably priced!

  5. I often feel the same way since I use wordpress and unless you pay to self host the options are limited so I just make do. It can be very confusing so I just stick to the basics. Only recently I learned how to make my posts publish to twitter :)
