I Don't Wanna

I resist change. I am stubborn. I have no idea why my daughter has inherited these qualities...

You may have noticed that my blog looks different. (Thank you sweet, sweet husband!) He held my hand while we finally switched me to 'The New Version of Blogger' and changed my template. I was terrified but it wasn't as bad as I thought it would be.

See ever since they've been bugging us to switch I was all “Nuh Uh!” to that. I was totally comfortable and happy with things the way they were. Or at least I wasn't buying that things would be any better if I switched. After a while Blogger was becoming more pushy about the switching. They would change things all the time to try to trick you into switching. It would be difficult to post comments on other peoples blogs some days and then other days it would be back to 'normal'. The more they pushed the more I resisted. But they seemed to have backed off. And then I became more open. There were things I liked about the new format. Labels, especially.

I'd been wanting to change my template for a while and had been shopping for a new background. (You like? http://squidfingers.com/patterns/) Then last night when I mentioned I also said casually “Maybe I should just switch to the new version.” and he said “Okay.” and I said “Wait, I don't know, I, I...” and he said “Don't worry it will be fine.” So here we are. We stayed up a bit too late because it ALWAYS takes longer than you think. But it was worth it. I hope he thinks so too as he is tired at work today...

I obviously haven't had much of a chance to use this new version. I don't really know whether I like it better yet. We still have to play with the template a bit. Feedback would be appreciated. But remember I cry easily.

I like it! Sometimes any change is a good thing- hope it cheers you up!

I like your new look, especially the color combo. I know what you mean about change, I had a hard time changing to the new blogger also.. it keeps screwing up my login. Somehow or other I actually created a new blog, but I didn't intend to do that.

Love the new look! I switched about a month ago but have not had the time to explore what it can do. Will have to come over for some lessons once school is done.

I was the same way about switching. It hasn't been too bad.

And I really like your new template a lot.

I hestiated moving to the new version too. I am the ultimate creature of habit, or so my husband says!

Yeah... I thought the labels were cool, but then I never use them. I think it's because I'm so anal... like I won't do it if I don't have time to go and label all of my flippin' archives.

Duh.

One thing though, this post didn't show up on my Bloglines, but as long as it was just this once....
