Adventures in Blogging

Today I decided it was time for a new background for my blog....
Little did I know it would be an adventure into a world I would rather not visit.
I am not technologically advanced, no I am more behind than I would like to admit. I can't even text someone on my phone and as for getting a new phone and figuring that out, I am hopeless. I live by the motto "Give It To A Teenager". I have the hardest time figuring out how to change the template on my blog and I won't even attempt to change my layout on my myspace. It is a big enough mess as it is.
I am happy to announce, and I think the technocrats out there would be very proud of me if they new what a feat of technological proportions I have achieved.... I changed my blog layout!!!!

Now this you may think is not such a big deal.
But I tell you I had to deal with such things as:

1. My page color would not change. Bright green just did not go with the theme I have changed to.

2. I had to figure out what an html code is, or at least how to get to it, I still don't know what it is but I am figuring it is sort of like the genetic make up of my blog, if you will.

3. I learned that the colors on a blog are not named black, red, green, brown, etc... they are called hexidecimal color codes, such as the brown you see as the back ground to this text is called #f5deb3. I like wheat better, at least I know how to spell that!

4. Lastly I learned that in order to change the back ground to this text you are reading I needed to know what it is called.... it is a wrapper, imagine that. I kept thinking it was the background even though I knew that was not correct but what else could they have called it.

So as you see I went to the technocrat world and I don't really want to visit there again.... it was all a bit much for me. However my blog is looking good!

I like the color description 'wheat' better too! lol Much more personal.

I need to change my layout. I never seem to find any I love. I will continue searching.

God bless you guys!

i've tried changing my layout but I loose all previous information.. I play it safe, unless you want to give me lessons. I love the new look!
