Yes, it's Theme Merry-Go-Round time again here at Sherri Blossoms. Well, only on the new site, which is probably where most everybody will read from here on out. I spent a long time working on that simple flower theme, which I liked a lot, but I couldn't get it just right. Then I realized I need more color. So I started looking for pictures of colorful flowers and found some beauties, but it just wasn't working.
The next one I tried was called Dark Wood and I thought it was near-perfect. Elegant with whimsical touches, natural, tiny flowers next to each post title to fit my theme...but in the end it wasn't customizable enough (for a code idiot like me) so I took it down. I might try it again later, though, if I don't find anything else I like. The one I'm using now, called Arclite, is cute. I love the colors, and eventually can change the header to my own image. I've already brought along the CSS changes from the old blog to make the rollover links pink. For some reason I just love that.
Problems with this template: No nested comments; if I use the optional 2nd sidebar it squishes the main content too much; lots of people use it.
I could probably make a new header with my old flower, but I'm actually getting tired of the whole flower thing. I guess it's a memorable title, Sherri Blossoms, with its play on "cherry blossoms," but then I always have to have a flower, and flowers get boring if you look at them too much. I don't know. Changing my blog is gut-wrenching. There are simply too many ways to go with it. Plus I love playing with it, so it eats up a LOT of my time.
The reason behind all this change is because I'm changing from the free WordPress hosting to GoDaddy's paid hosting. They have a plan especially for Wordpress users, where they do all the hard work of installing the WP open-source software on your site and changing your domain servers and such, and now I'm using an interface near-identical to the one I'm used to on the old WP blog. It even has the same options for themes and widgets, so changing the look is easier than a traditional website. I can't recommend it enough. (And no, I won't be in any GoDaddy commercials. One bimbo is all they need.)
One benefit I hadn't considered with getting paid hosting is that the page seems to load faster than on the free one, so that's good.
I feel like an expert now, on domain names and hosting and WordPress and stuff, so if you need any help with it, let me know. I don't know much, but what I do know I know very well, as I've been over it a thousand times.
Thank you for all your input, folks. And thanks for following me around during my time of wandering. Now I have a lot to do today, so I won't be around as much as usual. Don't feel like I'm ignoring you. Have a great day.
