Dreams really do come true. Keep dreaming!
Oh silly me! I forgot the pictures!
I asked for feedback on Sunday, but then didn’t give you any graphics or pictures to compare against. Sorry about that. In case you are wondering what I am talking about – here was the verbiage from Sunday’s blog post: Periodically, I get the itch to change the look of my blog. In the year since I started blogging, I’ve actually changed the theme or appearance six times and I’m wondering if you’ve noticed. I never thought to announce it before, but now I thought I would.
I’d love to know what you think:
- Do you like the colors or the font?
- Is it easy on the eyes?
- Do you have a favorite?
- Do you have a preference?
- Do you find it difficult to maneuver?
I have a few more themes I plan to try in the next couple of weeks and a special holiday cheer one I’ll be using for much of the month of December. That is of course, unless I get the itch to change it. I may even change the current theme before you have a chance to see it. Just know I’m always open to any feedback, questions, or comments at all. So if you have a spare minute, let me know what you think. Thanks!

SO AT LONG LAST – THE MISSING PICTURES!
Here was my first theme from a year ago called Fruit Theme. Only, I made some changes to my banner graphics and somehow I lost the original one.
I only used this Fiore Theme for about a week or two … maybe you missed it.
This was the Next Saturday theme that I happened to select on a SATURDAY (my favorite day of the week – in case you didn’t know) and I kept it for about a week or two of Saturdays…
I found and selected this Lovebirds Theme on Valentine’s Day or sometime in February, but I thought it might be a bit too lovey dovey or weddingy, if there is such a word. I only kept it up for several days.
Suburbia was a theme I had for a several months. I really liked that it gave clickable snapshots of my blog posts. But of course, I decided I needed a change and maybe you did too.
For the first day of school and several days after, I chose Chalkboard for a festive look. I really liked it.
I am starting to wonder about me and my number of changes. Maybe you are too. This Crafty Theme was one I had up for only about an hour. What the heck, huh? If you blinked, you probably missed it.
This Matala Theme never saw the light of day or anyone’s computer screen for that matter. I thought it was a little too busy. You think?
I found the Balloons Theme when I scanning the 287 other themes to be able to share them with you. I’m not making up that number either. I may use it in the future for some occasion that needs to be celebrated or maybe for an anniversary or National Balloon Day. If there is a balloon day. Stay tuned.
I had the My Life Theme for a couple of months and really like the simple colors, but it seemed a little too simple.
Seriously there are tons of blog themes to choose from (at least in WordPress) and not all of them are free. Now, some of you may be shaking your head, because you never knew there were so many choices in blog land. Some of you who blog may be shaking your head in agreement, because the choices are endless. Here is one called Little Story that has a cost of $75, that I love. There are many others too. I like Little Story because it is sweet and happy, only I’m not sure I want to pay for a theme. It is awful sweet though.
My latest theme is Vintage Camera. I thought it had nice eye-appeal and maybe was a little symbolic too.
And finally, yes Virginia there is an end to this blog post, I found this theme while scanning the options out there. It is called Misty. Of course, I found myself thinking about Clint Eastwood when I saw the title…as in Play Misty For Me.
But something surprising happened when I did a test view to check it out. My original banner graphics came back. I’m not sure how or why, but it kind of made me chuckle out loud.
I got so caught up in all of this previewing and screen saving and sharing, I almost forgot the original questions I asked on Sunday. Oh yes, feel free to share your thoughts or opinions (or possible concerns – haha), if you have any. And by now I think it’s fairly certain to assume that my blog theme will change again…one of these days. Stay tuned.
