I've grown a new head (masthead...)

A person who never made a mistake never tried anything new. – Albert Einstein 

Hopefully I haven’t made a mistake.

It’s always a little scary when you change something “fundamental” on your blog. Not only do you worry if it will be received well, but also if it will work.

I am in no way a programmer, so anything I do “behind the scenes” in blogger is fraught with danger. Or at least it feels like that to me. (What if I do something really wrong and wreck it all???)

This desire for change sprang from me getting a little tired of how my blog looked as well as what we're going through at home with selling, buying and moving (hopefully in that order). My blog has looked the same since January 2011. If you don’t change where you are you don’t go anywhere new.

For a large portion of last night I was toying with the dynamic page views that are offered by Blogger. They’re very tempting. Some are quite nice.

Luckily I resisted, because they do not support gadgets/widgets very well (apparently) nor do the take kindly to advertising. There is no advertising on my blog right now, but hopefully there will be (subtly) in the future.

I’m looking for “kindred spirit” advertisers – not “save! save! save!” when I finally get around to it. I do that kind of advertising for clients on a daily basis…that and "buy! buy! buy!".

I used to have AdSense, but that's a long story...

Regardless, it was time for a refresh and I spent all my time last night (when I should have been doing a post) looking at Blogger’s hind end. And all for naught.

I am going to try to get a post up later today. It’s a good one.

And I hope you like the refresh.
