I Like Playing with Layouts


I like playing round with the "furniture" on my computers and my blogs. In fact that was the greatest fun about Y!360. You could redesign your page infinitely and we all took the greatest pride in doing so. And we did it frequently. At least once a season. Since its demise (maybe because of our constant rearranging of the furniture) I have been stuck on platforms with only a limited amount of options - if any. Facebook and Pulse certainly offer none. Don't mention Multiply - I am never going back.

So imagine my rather pleasant surprise this morning when after signing on to my dashboard here at Blogger I found they were offering a new design feature. And course I had to jump right in. First I played with a blog I don't hardly use any more. I had within the limits tweaked my other blogs to a livable level. After trying on all the clothes on the rack as it were I was ready to embark on a rearrangement of one of my main blogs.

The selling point with all the new templates and design features was the larger "blog" space. I am not one overly enthralled with gadgets but the ability to move them in such a way that they did not impinge on my space for posting pictures and words of wisdom was my primary concern. And that I could pick a template and still arrange all the elements to suit me was a real winner. So two blogs rearranged and only one more to go. Well you do have to save something for a dull moment.

  1. Very nice. I like the new look. I have no time to look at my designs at the moment, but it will be fun to try them out when I can.

  2. Really? It came up when I logged on earlier today but not having time to explore/investigate I just closed it.

    The one thing I like about Multiply is being able to change your templates (although I only did it about a month ago!). I know you don't like it there but honestly it's not bad.

    I would like to see Profiles!Pulse colour their page a ...(tharr be more) Peer into the depthsbit - at the moment am still trying to find my way round it and when you don't have a great deal of time, it becomes frustrating.

  3. Yes, yes, yes! That's what I loved about Y360 too. Now that I have seen your great new design, I must try it too (when I find a spare moment! it's getting harder to find nowadays)...
