Technical Difficulties

Some very well-meaning friends (one of whom may or may not have been my spouse) convinced me to take the plunge and upload the new blog template that I've been working on for ages. Yes, really, ages.

"Just do it already" they say to me.

And so, with them almost literally holding my hand I loaded the new template.

AND EVERYTHING WAS COMPLETELY MESSED UP.

Which is not how this was all supposed to go down. I was supposed to have a grand unveiling of the new site. New year, new look, you know? It's just not how things were supposed to turn out you guys. Now it looks like I'll be up until the wee hours of the night tweaking margins and padding and doing that stomping around kind of acceptance that I am known to occasionally do.*

However, you can feel free to comment on the header. Do tell...I'd really like to hear what you think. I've probably made 20 different headers trying to find something that I can actually stand once it's finished. I can safely say I'm pretty happy with this one. (And thus ends my career as a graphic designer)

Also, I'm adding that Followers thingie on my sidebar which I find both terrifying and encouraging at the same time. So anyway...now you can all follow me! I think "follow" sounds so much nicer than "stalk" don't you?

Oh and I almost forgot(!) I changed the blog's actual name. Narrating Life seems a little more appropriate than Three Things so...change your bookmarks, refresh your readers, etc. etc. Or you know...don't...whatever.

*At the same time I'll be thinking about how I want to shift my entire blog over to Typepad anyway and maybe now would be the perfect time. Are any of you readers Typepad users? Now is your chance to try to lure me over to your side...I'm obviously on the fence.

LOVE the new banner! Love it.

I use Blogger because it's free, so I don't really know much about Typepad.

I LOVE YOUR HEADER! You did such a wonderful job! Can't wait to see the rest of it. If you need help, give me a holler.

As for typepad... I am a huge blogger promoter. I was with wordpress for the first year of my blogging whateverness and blogger just seems to be so much more user friendly. I'm not sure about typepad though... so yeah, good luck with that. :)

Looks good to me. Not too busy. Leaves plenty of room for pictures of all of the stuff that you are doing.

I loved your last look (seriously...loved it), but the new look is perfection. I think it's more you. You done good.

P.S. Still waiting for that email I was promised. :)
