Switching from Better Batter to plain ole Vanilla

Alright ya'll,

After much gnashing of teeth, many cuss words and a crash course in editing source code, I have made the new Blogger and its crappy template my beoatch - Who's.YO.Daddy?!? Say it, Say it. For those of you who read my blog through Bloglines or another feeder, please pop on over to the blog and give me your honest opinion. And feel free to bust my cojones and let me know if some stuff isn't working right, point out dead links, laugh at my lack of XTML savvy or let me know if the new design is too vanilla. And if anyone would like to design me a snazzy new template in return for some handspun yarn, I'd be happy to work out a trade. To be honest, I had gotten some comments that the old blog (RIP) was too dark and hard to read so I hope that this is a welcome change. Fear not, dear readers. I'm not a plain vanilla kinda girl so you will see me spice up la casita de Muse very soon. I'm still getting comfy with XTML and hope to add tweaks here and there as time permits. In the meantime, enjoy the divine Ms. Z (Zira the monkey that is) as she frolicks in the snow.

For those who suggested that I switch to Haloscan to make commenting easier, I'm going to hold off for a bit and see if this Blogger upgrade helps. After reading the forums for Haloscan and Blogger, it looks like there's a tendency for people to lose all of their comments when they switch to Haloscan commenting. I'm a serious comment Ho so I'd be really sad if I lost all of your comments from the last several years. If you're still encounter commenting problems, please email me (indigomuseatverizondotnet) and let me know what kind of commenting problems you're having so that I can put the screws to Blogger to get it fixed. I love hearing from all of you and it truly pisses me off that some of you have given up on commenting because its so difficult to do so.

Thank you, thank you, thank you for continuing to read about my fiber exploits. I love being a part of this wonderful fiberlicious worldwide family. I promise to have a regular blog post tomorrow!

I am so in agreement with you. There are these sloppy pieces of code in the new Blogger that I just want to scream. One day I probably will during my lunch break when I am catching up on Bloglines!

My aged eyes thank you!

I loved your glowing autumnal tree, but Zira is so MUCH more appropriate!

It's easier for me to read. I like it. I liked your old design, but it was a bit hard to read sometimes. I like Haloscan alot, but I switched to Haloscan while my blog was barely 3 weeks old. I did lose my comments and I was totally sad about it. From the Haloscan forums there is supposedly some workaround that you can bring them back, but I never felt like getting that deep into to figure it out. And now with the new blogger, I don't even know if it would be worth it.

I have always loved your blog. And vanilla is my absolute favorite flavor (when you use the real beans). I'll have to make my vanilla bean cake with cream cheese vanilla bean frosting for our next meeting. Oh, that's next week!!!!!!

Looks great!!! catie

The new Design looks good. I'd offer to help if I had a clue about the new blogger. The picture of Zira is a great header.

I, too, find the new design a lot easier to read.
