Time for a Change

Alright, I hope no one freaks out at the sight of a new blog template! Yes, the kitties are gone (for now) but I think that is OK. Change can be good, and it just so happened that Blogger is testing a new set of templates, so I thought it might be fun to try a few. Just like a person might try on a new pair of sandals. If one ever actually BOUGHT a new pair of sandals, that is...

Plus, I've heard from some friends (and my daughter, too!) that the previous template (ALTHOUGH QUITE ADORABLE!) was a bit cumbersome because you couldn't see the entire post without clicking on it. That was annoying to me, too, but I liked the grid structure and -- of course -- the kitties, so I thought I'd try it for awhile. You'd be surprised at how few free cat-themed blog templates are out there! Geez -- you'd think they'd be in high demand! If I were smart enough to create my own template featuring Tinsel and Lily, I would certainly do that. Maybe some day...

But for now, I'm content to play around with this new template tool. I'll try not to choose anything too jarring, for those of you who read my blog with your morning coffee!

Wow! Looks great! I have to admit that on your other incarnation I missed being able to scroll down and see a bunch of posts at a time. I mean, usually I could tell just from that little preview whether or not I had read them, but this way I know for certain. Plus, this way if you're wondering about something in a previous post while reading the current post, you can just scroll down & check.

Awesome Janet! I too want to change my art blog... change IS good! Although I miss the kitties; but since they were not Tinsel and Lily, I think I'll survive.

Very nice! A nice spring look. :) I know what you mean about cat templates, I've been playing around myself with mine to try to add a few cat inspired features. Just figured out this week how to add little pawprints under each post.

Janet said...

YAY! Thank you, guys! :-)

This may not be permanent, so don't get TOO attached to it! lol

Lola -- Great to meet you, too! Thoroughly enjoyed my visit! I have been practicing my accent so that I can blend in next time I'm there! lol
