"Why Don't You Upgrade from the Blogger Template?"

One of my friends asked me this last night on the phone.

Sitting in front of my computer I had called her on a whim, just to talk. Which I don't do much. But she's been helping me with some tricky HTML (wondering about that rotating slideshow on the right?) and it was on my mind.

Not many readers, I said. I'd like to get readership up.

That's when she asked me the question in question.

The short answer is, I don't want to. I liked this template the first time I saw it: Clean lines, clever color combinations, simple, attractive and retro. There are limits to what can be done with this template without making it look ridiculous and these limitations intrigue me.

My work life is about making everybody else's stuff look better. It is about defying limitations, breaking outside the box, thinking two steps ahead of the competition, selling.

I am tired. My eyes are sore. If my brain could wince, it would.

Let everyone else update, revamp, improve, evolve. It's fun to watch. But I do enough of that professionally. I'll stick with my blogger blog, which not many read.

Of course, when I get that sidebar looking the way I want, look out.

I don't want to change my plain-jane template either; I like it. And I also like that I get to parktake in some of your "work-life" brilliance!

P.S. I think Julie just smiled at you...

I was just thinking the other day "maybe I should change my blog look" though honestly, actually writing on it would be the place to start...and then I thought, well girlfriday and her kin haven't changed theirs, which made me feel all content with my own refusal to change. If you change, I would feel oh so old, I mean hobster has changed his at least 3 times since I started reading it, and yes, they are sometimes nicer than previous, but even that seems to challange my equillibrium. I'm barely in one piece physically right now, can I really justify a blog that is in better shape than I am? Thanks for setting a standard, girl.

I agree; the Blogger template's fine, and I haven't had any problems with their reliability over the last year or so.
