A little bit of housekeeping

So… I decided to change my blogs’ looks.

It took me 12 darn hours to manage, because I had to change some html codes. Well… more specifically, I changed them, saved them and checked, but the blogs didn’t change.

Yeah. Annoying as hell, because as far as I could discover, there was nothing to do but repeat the process again and again until it worked.

But yeah. I think it’s worth it, don’t you?

For one thing, the comments should be more visible.

OOOH! Speaking of comments. I’ve received more than a few messages with regards to the comments. Apparently some people just can’t seem to comment on my blog. NO idea why. I do notice, though, that more than a few of them use wordpress.

So here’s my question: Who would (for whatever reason) prefer if I cross-posted to my wordpress blog? The posts’ content will be available. But maybe it would be more convenient for you? If it is, please send me a mail and let me know: mishagericke(AT)gmail(DOT)com.

On an unrelated note, I removed the lists of blogs I follow. For some reason, they were grossly out-of-date and for some reason they refused to accept wordpress blogs. I will gradually build them back up, though, in another format.

That’s me for today.

What do you think about the new look? Any niggles you’d prefer me to fix while I’m at it? Think it’s a good idea for me to cross-post?

  1. It pulled up much faster, which is a good thing! Sorry it took you so long to make it work.
    I've never had a problem leaving a comment.
    And blogrolls can be difficult to maintain. I found out the hard way that once they get so big, you can't add or change them. (Which is why I have four shorter ones now.)

  2. I think blogger quit updating the wordpress blogs (and in some cases removing them from your blogroll) the same time they disabled GFC for non-blogspot blogs. At least this was my experience.

    Congrats on the new look!

  3. I like the fresh new look. It's, well fresh and new πŸ˜‰

    A niggle – I think the pale headings are a bit hard to read against the coloured sidebars

  4. It looks nice.
    If I had to do html, it would probably take me longer than 12 hours. I just can't get the hang of it.
    I've had problems with my blogroll too.

  5. I'm one of the people who can never comment, but I'm giving it a go again in case your great new look has mixed things up. Fingers crossed…

    (PS. The colours are reminding me of choc-mint ice-cream!)

  6. Love the new look! And I've had issues with people not being able to comment as well. I still have trouble cleaning up the list of blogs I follow, maybe someday that will get fixed. Who knows.

  7. I like the new look.

    I have WordPress for my blog, and I've also had enough tech problems that I've sometimes climbed the walls. The last thing I could do for anyone is give technical advice, because I'm terrible at it.

  8. I'm commenting without any trouble πŸ™‚ Love the new look of your blog! I too have a WordPress blog, as part of my author website, and although I don't cross reference, I'll often re-post from one site to the other. I'd like to expand into following more WordPress sites. To tell you the truth, I'm getting a little bored with Blogger.

  9. Very nice design. Simple and understated- unique too! I have both WordPress and GoogleId and have no problem commenting when I am logged on to both. Perhaps it's the browser they are using. I find google becoming more and more hostile to anything that isn't Googley owned. Firefox in general just freezes up a lot on me when I am doing stuff on my blog or watching YouTube (and for a while I couldn't even watch YouTube because Chrome was apparently interfering). CHeers!

  10. Too bad it took so long to get things the way you wanted, but well worth the effort. The cool mint colour is refreshing, as someone already mentioned and the brown accents look like chocolate! (Mmmm, chocolate, drool drool!) I also found it loaded much faster than usual. We'll see how the comment works. You'll know if my wordpress ID works if you don't see Humpty Dumpty. πŸ™‚
