But I an not pleased when I click on some item, tinkering to make small changes with an overall appearance I like-- and my whole blog changes, as happened two days ago. Bear with me while I try to figure this out and improve the layout and typography. I don't know what I did, and I don't like it, and Blogspot, while easier than Wordpress, is not exactly non-computer-geek friendly. I considered changing to Wordpress, but since I teach a blogging class, Blogspot is just too beginner friendly to give up, even if it maddeningly obtuse. Some blogvolution is regressive. Or maybe it was just a sign that I was too stuck in my ways and need to change more.
So I'm out of my comfort zone and still tinkering, a little at a time. It will get better.
- Rule One--Is it easy to read? If not, nothing else matters--that involves quality content, interesting and good writing, and appropriate typography.
- Rule Two--Is it attractive and well-organized to help achieve Rule 1? If not, make it so.
I feel your pain and that is why I don't mess with my layout too much. I like writing posts and I hate messing "under the hood."ReplyDelete
Sadly, it seems that unless you know how to do some basic html/css, then most under the hood stuff is hard to get it to do what you want. Both through Wordpress and Blogger.ReplyDelete
