Is this a deal or no deal?

Deal or No Deal (video game)Image via Wikipedia

Ok..so I like to change my blog now and then...it's not just because it is a blog....it's because it just IS. I used to do it to my hair a lot...but finally after many disasters I have found other things to massacre.
So, I decide to change the blog and I first tried just a background like this...but stupidly I saved it without backing up my original. Then I decided I wanted something more than just a background so, figured I would go to where I got the purple flowered blog that I deleted. I found another template that I fell in love with (sort of) so I tried it and previewed it before I saved it. (using my head this time) Well, to my horror I saw that everything on my side bar would be gone if I saved the layout.
Ok, so since I know that I can do just a background with out losing my sidebar, I decided I'd better find something I like in backgrounds. So, back to the cutest blog I went. Hence, the change of the look of this blog.
First of all, I have 3 blogs and I don't even know why. Ok, well, I have one to answer my memes and I have one where you go to MCQ on mondays. Right? you do go there right?
so this 3rd one is sort of just for the leftovers I guess. You never know when I will have something very important to tell ya. Like I am doing now!! :-)
So after adopting this new blog look I had to make some odds and ends to go on my side bar and I had to change the text colors and etc. I have spent pretty much the whole day on this dang thing!
So now....was it worth it?
Reply with the number that matches you feeling about my new blog.....
1. My god I want to vomit when I see it. NO DEAL
2. I guess I can bear with it..I am not here all that often.
3. Stop fretting....it's kind of cute.
4. Actually I think it's the bomb! DEAL!

Hey even I know there is always room for improvement!:-)

Maybe we were...LOL My deal was cutting..and still is..I alwya get an urge to cut something off when it won't do what I like!
chop...my bamngs are a little short now...
I had green hair and purple hair once too! I thought I knew what I was doing...I had to have my hair died real dark to cover it....LOL Gross

i would be blonde one month, auburn another, brown, etc. i found out i look awful in dark brown or black but i'm good as a blonde!. wait. let me rephrase that - LOL. never had the green or purple, but can definitely relate to cutting - and then there's the cursing. too funny!

hugs, p.s. my thurs. thunks is up.

#4 for me...I absolutely love it!!! I didn't know you can use different layouts other than the ones provided by blogger...how do you get them? I feel like a change to mine too.

Lani said...

thanks so much for your comment!!!
here are two good websites...they have the directions...the nice thing is they are only changing the backgrounds so it doesn't remove your stuff in your sidebar. http://hotbliggityblog.com/ and http://thecutestblogontheblock.com/free/free-backgrounds.html
If you were to want to start all over from scratch before you have your sidebar all set up...then I recommend this place.. http://www.pyzam.com/bloggertemplates there are a lot of cool ones at the last one place but it will remove anything you have on your page when you install .....
if you have any questions ..I might be able to help...Maybe

I'll go with #3 :-) I'm currently having my blog re-formatted, but I decided to pay someone do it for me after the last disaster I attempted wherein my blog got totally screwed up! Coding is not my friend!

Lani said...

Carma..thats why its nice to just change the background because you don't have to change the code. you just add it as a gadjet...or widget...or what ever the things are called
