Green With Envy

If you’re reading this in a feedreader, you’ll have no idea what I’m talking about 😛
New colors and design. Same exact template, just a new theme.

Please, tell me what you think 😛

My son’s birthday is St. Patrick’s Day, so I have to go a little nuts with that 😉


:birthday: It’s 55 outside, but it’s COLD inside. My shoulder is on fire though 🙁 Damn it, I really am getting old. :down:

Not doing much at the moment. Got some Neutrogena make-up today. The lovely mineral one. I can’t wait to try it out.

Ethan and Josh got haircuts. I’ll have to show pictures later. I love them both, though. Ethan’s is SHORT!!

Josh keeps looking over at me and making me feel self-conscious, :cookoo:.

Oh, and if you couldn’t tell (or are reading through a feedreader), I put up a new theme. Same creator, as always. 🙂 This was one I totally forgot about. It’s called Winter Wonderland. Isn’t it just the cutest? I LOVE it so much. And can you guess what song was stuck in my head after seeing the name of the theme?

Thursday 13 – 24th Edition – Things I’ve Noticed About Blogging

I’ve been blogging since 2001. I originally started on LJ, and worked my way over to self-hosting. I have to say that I love it.
But, with it, you learn a few things. 🙂 Here are thirteen things I’ve learned 🙂

Did Some Cleaning

Here’s how I cleaned up the blog:

  • I cleaned up the sidebars on all the themes. I removed the “Currently…” *I doubt anyone reads those anyway* and the Flickr. Half the themes it was breaking anyway, so I made it more universal, XD
  • I removed some older themes, or ones that I just didn’t like. One was removed because a plugin no longer works right on it, and made the theme look like crap. Loved the theme, and maybe I’ll bug Katy about it once spring comes around, since it suits me for May :love:
  • I removed the “Related Posts” on the themes that had it. It was cluttering and made everything look a mess. It just wasn’t pretty *they’re still available for feeds, since I feed my own site and like the related posts, but agree that they did clutter the site
  • I lowered the number of posts viewed on each page. Ten can still be read in the feedreader, but only 5 are viewable per page. It was a nice rounded number that works for all the themes, after the clean-up. There still might be a bit of extra scroll past the sidebars, but it depends on how much or how little I write, since I also changed the Evermore (2 paragraphs of at least 100 words each before the [more] gets added

One thing I still need to do is on the themes that come with avs, to remove the code for them on the single posts pages, because they look AWFUL with it.
