It's time for a change!

As I look at my blog page I notice something that has been bothering me for a long time; my page really looks ugly and gloomy! I like bright, warm and fun colors, not brown and plain ones. I'm thinking if I looked at my blog page as an outsider, I would find it very uninviting. So I decided that it's time to change the design of the blog!

But the problem is, The templates Blogger has are really unappealing, and they look far too basic and ammeter for the kind of feel I want my Blog to covey. I wish I knew how to make a custom template, but I'm not that tech savvy quite yet.

I think I choose my current design because I would easily fit my header on it, and It was the best looking of the templates Blogger had at the time. Oh well, the most I can do at the moment is to change the best of the blog. Hopefully I can discover a way to download a template onto my site sucessfully, beacuse even i'm getting bored of my color scheme.

Much Love,

yeah i get what you mean. you can edit the colors of whatever template youre using if you go into 'design' 'template editor' 'advanced', but im not sure if that's what you're looking for considering you dont seem to want any of the templates at all.

Hello Lindsay!

I blog over at www.differenthomeschoolgirl.blogspot.com, and I am considering starting a blog/group/community/something for homeschool girls like you and me. Here's a brief outline of my thoughts:

It would be a place for girls (under 21 years old) who have been or are being homeschooled through middle school, high school, or college.
They must love Jesus.

They must be living a lifestyle that's different from the World.

They want to be part of an online community with other homeschool girls who are living different lives, set apart for the Lord.

They want to encourage and be encouraged by others walking the same walk.

Every member would check out prospective members’ blogs before they’re officially admitted. The girls must honor God with the content of their blogs and have a commitment to living a life set apart to Him.

What do you think? Would you be a part of this group? Can you think of anyone else who would? Do you have any suggestions as to how it should be put together?

Thank you for your time!
