As you can see, I have new a layout!
Well, it's still the same, just did a little tweaking here and there.
I started blogging in Blogspot in 2009. Well actually I started blogging in 2005 in *gasp* Friendster. Those were my darker days.
But it has been 3 years since I did anything to enhance my blog. Among all the blogs I've followed, I believe that I have the plainest of them all. After Patrick Teoh's Niamah!.
Actually from time to time, I did scour the Internet for interesting templates and skins. But none suited me. And you know that scouring would take hours, and by the time you realise it, you have already lost a whole day. For nothing.
In the end, I was like, screw it. I'm not entering The Most Beautiful Blog contest, nor am I getting paid by Nuffnang to prettify it.
I thought I'd wait till I have 200 followers, then I'll do something for my readers' eyes.
So 3 years later, I finally have 204 followers. LOL. I'm not getting any Miss Popularity blue ribbon any soon.
I now need to renovate my space.
I'm sure some of you have dropped by during my blog redesigning process and seen some horrific changes. I wished that Blogspot would allow me to put a Work In Progress sign :/.
Anyway, I did find a few pretty skins, but haven't found what I was looking for.
The stupidest thing I did was forgetting to save my original template. WHAAAT.
So I was stuck with a mediocre looking skin for a day. 'Coz my eyes couldn't take the glare from my laptop anymore and body was screaming to lay the effing down. I gave up. Screw it, I'll just wait till have 300 followers then I'll go scouring again.
But then, loyal blog stalkers Carol and Lizee dropped me some pretty constructive comments. I wasn't the only who didn't dig my new skin.
The next day, I went searching for my old photo of evil Mary, and luckily, I found it. I went searching for simple skins, and googling my eyes for CSS pimping codes, in which by the way, aren't these CSS code providing geeks are the best?! Where do they learn all these stuffs? College?
And voila! My newly renovated blog.
You may need to get used with the artsy trimmings and the darker salmon background - I know I did.
But I'd love to hear your feedback. Be brutal. Don't mind my 8 hour effort, throbbing headache and watery eyes.
