I don't think I have done anything to my blog in five or six years. Some of my links stopped working about that time. Yeah, the links on the sidebar were sure to lead many people to dead ends. I weeded out the derelicts, up dated the ones still breathing and then opened up the "Theme" page on the blog dashboard. That's where I found my last set-up.
Wow. Quite a few new choices over what I remember from my last time. Eleven new styles to pick from with each style having a variety of suggestions to pick from.
I began thumbing through the choices and dammit, I was overwhelmed by too many choices. I kept telling myself to pick one, but then I'd notice another style I had maybe not given enough attention to and well, ...... T\this could have gone on forever. So I picked one first for BoZone ll, my fiction blog and set it up.
As I have more time than brains, I thought I would look into personalizing, or as Google calls it, customizing my blog. I hit the "Customize" button and voila, a door I had never opened before led me to a land of color, dimensional mania, and backgrounds with intravenous fillings. It was a world I imagined a computer nerd on acid would come up with.
After I fiddled around with the main settings (Layout, Background, width adlustments, I came to the button "Advanced". Okay, serious pause here.
Over the years I have learned to approach any icon that says "advanced" with an idea that there is a fifty-fifty chance that button is an evil computer genius' idea of a joke, and if I punch it, all Hell will break loose.
I needn't have worried. As usual, Google foresaw and made accommodations for the computer challenged among us. As long as one can read, their "Advanced" world is one this flounder could figure out.
Thank You Google, I was able to increase the font size so my posts did not seem like reading the small print on a "terms of agreement" web page.
Once I had a new BoZone ll page, I tore this page a new asshole and what you see is the result. Still some gadgets and links to clean up, but the page is how I want it for now.
Anyway, remember to vote for anyone BUT a Republican this fall. We want to move forward, not back.
Keep it 'tween the ditches .........................................................
