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.
