Just Sharing - My Brain Hasn't Totally Shut Down

A great deal of my time is spent surfing the internet reading other art blogs.  Besides the content, I also take notice to the layout of each blog.  I've seen some neat aspects like custom banner images and tabs but thought maybe the author had a special paid blog.

Well today I decided to do some research to see how one goes about making custom changes and if it was restricted to paid accounts (if there is such a thing through blogger).  What I discovered is that anyone can make custom changes........it's just a matter of learning how to go about it.

After viewing a few videos and articles along with trial and error............I have finally customized my own layout and love it!!!

At first I just wasn't sure if I'd be able to do what I was hoping to do.  It seems the older I get the more my brain rebels learning and processing new stuff.........especially technical.  I don't look forward to learning new programs anymore (I used to enjoy the challenge),  and I have a horrible time with changes or upgrades to existing programs or even sites like facebook.   Even blogger is changing their interface and I have been dragging my feet making the change.

I'm tickled to bits that not only did I customize my blog page, I'm proud to say I also made the jump with the new blogger interface and actually like it.

love your new look. I fight change every step of the way too especially with techno stuff. I wish I could delete the first photography programs I learned because my brain still wants to do it the old way.

Ann.......thank you!! You are the first to let me know how it my changes are viewed through someone else's eyes!

I'm still using an old Photoshop Elements because I just don't like the newer version. I tried it. When I was forced to upgrade my computer to Windows 7 after lightening did a number on my system, I was so afraid I'd not be able to use some of my old programs like PE. Fortunately the compatibility mode built in has saved me from having to go with newer versions!! I cringe every time a new operating system comes out.

Thank you again :-)

Very nice new look. I like your choice of your own watercolor for the banner.
