Shoe shopping

I have spent hours (seems like days, weeks, months) going through templates to use for this blog. It kind of reminds me of when I intend to go shopping for shoes. The choices are endless, but nothing seems quite right.  The only time I ever find shoes is when I am not actually looking.  So what do I need to "shop" for when I am actually looking for a blog template?


  1. I know exactly what you mean. I went through the same thing and just decided on something simple until 'later'....You will eventually find what you want.

    Have a nice weekend.

  2. I had the same thing before I settled on a style..
    My suggestion would be to just look at other peoples blogs... if you see a style you like you can either ask them how they achieved it, or go and investigate it yourself...
    Plus you'll see gadgets and things that you want that you can aquire often just by clicking on them.
    What I've found is that as I've learned more my blog has evolved sort of on its own.
    Good Luck

    p.s. you might find these links useful too.



  3. Sheri - I guess I will have to practice a little patience. Hope you had a good weekend.

    Jo - Thanks for the links. Will give them a look this evening

  4. I like the new background.. it's more soothing, and doesn't compete with the text.
    And I really like your header picture..

  5. Jo -
    Thanks. After more browsing of endless templates I decided to come up with my own header. Found the background on blogger. I have some more ideas but I think I will wait to see how this blog thing goes.
    You must be a night owl or get up really really early.


Always happy to hear from you!
