Blogging is turning out to be harder than it seemed like it would be. Well, not actually the blogging part, but all the stuff that goes with it. I got through getting the blog account set up with only a few glitches along the way, but now it turns out there is more I need to figure out. It appears that the best bloggers out there have all these cute backgrounds that add personality to their blogs. I'm all for having a personable blog, but I can't quite figure out how to get the backgrounds from where they keep them to, well, back there behind all these words. Even if I can figure that part out (and I will) how do you choose which background to use. It seems like a lot of them have holiday themes, all very cute. The next big holiday is Valentine's Day ( Martin Luther King Day is tomorrow, but I didn't find much on that theme)but the Valentine theme just feels like one I should avoid, for obvious reasons. Or maybe I should choose it as a permanent decor. Most of the other ones just seem a bit too "fluffy" for me. Anyway, see how hard it is.
Next comes pictures. All the good blogs seem to have lots of pictures, and I like pictures a lot and I have a lot of pictures. But again, I just don't know how to get them from there to here. I will get that figured out also, with some outside help, but then comes the question of which pictures to post. Logic says they should have something to do with what I am writing about, but someday I'll have that cute background, and I want them to look good with that too, don't I?
Then there's the spelling thing. I am actually a pretty good speller, but I might like to double check myself sometimes. I know spellcheck is somewhere, I just can't find it.
I'm pretty sure I'm making it harder than it needs to be, but maybe not, since the font just changed on me and I have no idea why or how to change it back.
