That is probably for the best since it ain’t a pretty sight!
JennJ is one of those peeps who did though…why you might wonder?
Well, you take one impulse idea to change the format of your blog.
You take that request to one of the best blog designers you know and have her way with your blog.
Then she asks all sorts of questions to install the new template that shrinks my blog ego to the size of raisons.
Then, when I give said blog designer some super sekret blog info and gets the template installed but now all my widgets are all on the left, which can happen but hubby raced for a bag as I started to hyperventilate.
My blood pressure went from a slightly worrisome 140 (because I’m soooooo good at giving away the control *rolls eyes at self*) to a *OhMyGawdWhyOhWhyDidIHaveToChangeAnything??!!* rant to the computer.
JennJ was all calm…she was the voice of wisdom…the light at the end of the tunnel.
We got it sorted out…of course, what else did you expect from JennJ! *grin*
JennJ is the goddess of man candy – see the evidence of my new header hunk.
Every question or request I fired at her, yes an M16 had nothing on me because me in a panicked state loses all form of friendliness *shameface* But JennJ calmed me down, worked with my requests - can still hug her for the extra time she put in template – and hit the bulls eye with my new blog expanding, gorgeous stylized drop down menu *dreamboat sigh*
It’s a week later now and I’m all calm, confidence and smiles again and love, love, LOVE what JennJ did. I loved it from the start but my panic attack prevented me from fully inhaling the slimmer, slick format.
The why behind it all you might wonder?
I was completely head over heels for the sand dollar template, mainly because it has a wider blogpost body and I know my reviews eat up space. I didn’t want visitors to have a scroll finger from reading my reviews. But as I entered some blog networks who took a screenshot of my blog I noticed it was all scrambled up. It made me wonder how many peeps saw my blog like that. Then I was starting to have more features, more challenges and I wanted a drop down menu. Well let me tell you how many grey hairs that gave me…it’s L’Oreal every 8 weeks for sure!!!!
Since I tweaked my blog with tutorials (as I’m a stubborn Leo thinking I can do blog design myself) I just kept tweaking it for two years but with adding the codes for the drop down menu I just had to admit defeat…so there you have it. My breaking point was reached and I went to JennJ from Sapphire Blog Design to make my blog template all better without losing the look I love so much :)
So JennJ, thank you for holding my hand through the changes and giving me what I so desperately wanted!! You iz made of awesome hon!!!
