I don't know about you guys, but I'm growing a little bored of my generic Blogger template. I mean, it's pretty, but I feel like I could find something that is a little more me. Currently I am looking at a few different places that give you codes and/or downloads for your page, but I'm just not finding anything that fits. I suppose it would be a good idea if I had any idea what kind of a theme I want to use.
I started out looking at kind of a coffee-type theme. My thing is, though, that I would rather have a coffee SHOP-type theme because I don't really drink a lot of coffee. I'm more of a Chai kind of girl. I love coffee shops though... The atmosphere just kind of gets to me. But all the templates I find are just coffee cups or coffee beans which just isn't what I am looking for.
Then I began looking at a few different generic pages and all I found were anime themes. Don't get me wrong here - I like anime (Princess Mononoke is one of my FAVORITE movies ever!) but I really don't relate my personality with anime.
I started out doing this on a whim, but when it really comes down to it I want this blog to convey my personality in all aspects, not just through my writing. This is an important task to take on and it might just be something that I will need to invest more than just time into if I want it done just right.
Over the next month, I am hoping to make lots of changes here. I am hoping that by writing a new post every day that I will improve my writing, but more than that improve my ability to draw inspiration from more areas. Of course I love writing about myself and my family, but I would love to be able to write about other things on a regular basis as well. Currently, I have a hard time with that.
I hope to find a new template soon and I'm making a goal to have everything set by the end of the month (unless I have to spend money on it - in which case my goal is the end of the year). I might try out a few before the end of the month. If you like what you see, please let me know!
What changes, if any, would you like to see? Have you ever done a redesign? What changes were for the best? Any you regret?
