At least eventually I know when to stop and reassess. This is what I had decided to go do – keep a lot of the feel from my original blog theme (see post below). I thought it would look great to have a smaller header and have my links that I like so so much at the top. I struggled technically – but that is not why I stopped.

All of a sudden, I realized that the changes in the colors that I had made in the sidebar headers were not there. I had originally changed to that fluorescent blue, but then changed them to this blue. I guess I forgot to upload the more subdued blue – so that was part of what was bothering me so much – and I think it was what bothered Chris too – but I am eager to hear from him what he says. Once I changed the header bars to the color I like, then all of a sudden I liked this look for the blog.

This is the theme (template) that I am working from. I like it, but it too busy for my taste. So I have been trying to undo and change. I know some but not enough to confidently change someone else’s complex code. And great!, I just went to check out something and found out that what I fixed on one browser went wrong again on another browser!
So I am 1) still working to get rid of the underlines on the links under Diane (on some browsers), 2) still needing to get some the headers to be blue again (on some browsers), 3) get rid of the yellow-green that comes up before the header loads (I can’t find it yet), 4) figure out how to make the header work, 5) get the calendar back into its sidebar and 6) make the post setup more similar to the last one – I liked it a lot better. Sue said she couldn’t read the blog title and I hate how it is so far. But I wanted to make sure I could get other things to work before I spent too much time on that.
I am very open to hearing what you have to say! Thank you for bearing with me in this process!
