Painting the proverbial blog walls—again!

Here we go again! I’ll admit that I enjoy change, and also that color affects my creativity and productivity. I was very proud of myself a couple of posts ago, when I learned how to manipulate the HTML code in my blog to create three columns instead of two, how to produce a banner, and how to manipulate the colors of the elements. It was a good learning exercise, but . . . I have decided that I really would prefer to be surrounded by flowers and by my favorite color, blue, when I write. It just feels right.

This afternoon I visited the Cutest Block on the Block to see how well my “living room” needs could be met. To my delight, I discovered a wide range of backgrounds from which to choose, with easy-to-follow instructions. It took very little time to adjust my blog. However, a note to the wise—if you have selected anything other than the Minima template (one of the basic Blogger templates), you will find it’s worth your time to pre-select that template before you use one of the Cutest Blog on the Block backgrounds. This site provides both 2-column and 3-column backgrounds, as well as some banners, buttons, blinkies and other extras. At some point I will probably re-create a banner, but for now I just want to get used to the new look.

What do you think?
