So, Do You See the Difference??

Don't anyone ever tell me I'm not courageous. Today I changed the background color of my blog from "stark white" to "floral white."

What a difference, huh? I live on the edge. I'm a risk taker--

Tomorrow I just might add another color, say in the header; or if I decide I don't like the floral white background, I might change the color back to stark white.

Oooh... so creamy!
I haven't done anything yet as regards changing to ExBetaNew. I may change Bluebeak over to check out the scene, but SP will wait until pushed or until Jen leads the way.
Zed, you are more than capable of producing excellent professional results. I await to enjoy the results of your experimentation.

As always, if anyone would like my assistance, I am willing to help where I can.

You rebel!!!!! There is no stopping you now!

I made the change and so far came out ok. I didnt want to change though, I had to be forced kicking and screaming.

PFTTTTT.

Whoa, slow down, cowboy! We need to be consulted before you go off half cocked like this!

Oooooh, stylish, sexy, just what the new year needs...(actually, because I have the attention span of a cushion, I don't even remember what your site looked like before). I dare you to try a light shade of yellow.

ExBetaNew, I like that!
Sans, you know what's weird? I used to design software and publishers were happy with the look of it. Now, for this silly little blog, I freak out to change even one color. Maybe I'll go slap my face later and say "Snap out of it!"

Thanks for your offer of help. It's much appreciated. You've got a good heart! I'm going to try to be brave on my own, but if nothing happens relying on ME, I'm going to call on YOU. :)

Mel, when you made the change you didn't seem to lose your design at all. How can that be??

Anyway, I'll see what I can do later this week. I might even choose Titanium White for a background!

Mr. Fab, I'm going to try to get a grip on my "wild ways" today. I was really out of control last night with this redesign thing.

Tanya, light yellow could happen any moment. I'm on a roll!

Teri, I'm with you. Even I don't see a difference. :)

I noticed. I cried for an hour thinking "Zed is CraZy!! Floral white??? OMG!", but I wiped my snotty nose and got over it.

I'm not sure if I can handle seeing what else you can do.

Thanks Sushiboy. It was hard on my eyes too--sometimes I thought, how can anyone read this?? Thanks for the input.

Amy, I think you might have cried because the floral white is so nostalgic... like a wedding! :) I'll try not to do anything toooooo shocking. "Try"? Not a problem--I'm not the shocking sort. :)

I commented on my own site, but I should have written here first. I readded you to my site, for some reason you and Sans had disappeared...

Anyway, light yellow will be nice because it is the colour of butter and I like butter.

Well, since you added me... yellow it is! Give me a minute.

Whats going on here? Its all changed..so...dramaticlly!! You should've brought the changes in slowly. Gone with the Alabaster then Apricot White then maybe to Antigue Papercraft THEN to FLoral White.

God I need a Aspirin!!

And a cold compress for my eyes!!!

Bwaaahaa! I tried to do it slowly Scarlet, really I did. Then yesterday something just came over me and suddenly I said to no one in particular, "I'm just gonna DO IT!!"

And in about two minutes from now I'm switching to a light yellow background because Tanya Espanya's pregnant and we're all trying to be so very a-c-c-o-m-m-o-d-a-t-i-ng. :)

Take an extra-strength Tylenol and call me in the morning.

Zed, you're so good to me! I crush you with my love. And now my husband is making me a cheeseburger! (I know, poor guy is at work all day while I sprawl around the house, eating cupcakes and playing mah jongg and he has to cook for me!)

You're welcome. Just so you know the yellow might be temporary. Not sure if I like it.

Stretch this "pregnancy thing" out as long as you can. There are real benefits!

I don't like this yellow. It looks like someone peed all over the blog. Pffft.

Ch Ch Ch Changes. Happy Birthday, Zed is 60 years old! I mean David Bowie. I can't keep up.

Nobody, blame Tanya. The yellow isn't my favorite (on WALLS it's good though), so I think I'm going back to the floral white. If I ever get paid for all the editing/writing/indexing work I've done in the last 5-6 months I think I'll hire a web page designer.

Dale, David Bowie and I are rarely mistaken for one another--almost never. BTW, your "lying I's" joke in response to my comment was so lame-o ... Have I said pfft to you yet today? No? Then pfft! :)
