I found something else about myself the past couple of days. Yes, Sherri is Blossoming right and left. The thing is: I hate blogging! I hate REAL blogging, with the declaring of opinions and the researching my topic and linking to relevant articles. I think I mostly hate it because I'm not very good at it and it takes me a really long time. Or maybe it takes me so long because I hate it. I don't know.
I end up sorry everytime I try to mess with my system, which consists of blabbing on until I've hit one hour or I run out of blabb, whichever comes first. And every time I tell myself I'll never try to be a "real" blogger again--it'll be anecdotes and silly observations from here on out--but I always compare myself to others and feel I should try harder, which leads down that road. And doing a post every day is just magnifying every tiny problem, and I am really thinking of taking a day off. My hand hurts from typing.
This template is growing on me. I know it's missing the bright color of my old one, but I think I want to be subdued for a while. I can change the header later if I feel the need. I miss having two sidebars, though. Having one sidebar is very clean, but people have to scroll down to get to some stuff I want them to see. I haven't even bothered to put all the widgets on there yet.
My daily hits have evened out since the switch. I'm getting 40-50 per day pretty steadily. I LOVE being able to track all my stats, something you can't do with Wordpress.com. I hope I'll be able to continue the hosting, because I sure as hell don't want to have to go through all this crap in reverse.
Okay, ran out of blabb.
