I absolutely hate it when I’m not good at something. It drives me insane. Keeps me awake at night. I’ve accepted that I won’t ever be a math whiz but this took me over thirty years.

“Lauren, what the hell are you talking about?” you all ask.

Blogger templates! GRRRR! Okay, so I can handle the ones that blogger has, I can jig with them and put up a new background and change the size of the fonts, etc. But I wanted to put up an outside template, a pretty one that I hadn’t seen three hundred times. I found several and I have spent more time than I have trying to get them to work.

I enlisted the help of a friend who is marvelous at such things and she couldn’t get one of them to work because there appeared to be missing code. Okay, so instead of bugging her again, I’ve tried two other templates and each has had problems in different areas.

I WILL NOT LET THIS BEAT ME!! I swear on all that is holy that I will get this to work.

    And if you don’t? Then, is it unholy?

    Moderation. I’m so loving it. Haloscan will be gone tomorrow.

    Hi Lauren. Did you think about using one of the other blogger templates and taking the code from that and then mixing and matching it with the template you want, to get the design you want?

    I’ve found that this particular template isn’t great for customisation. The Minima ones are more flexible, as you can pull out the codes and use the CSS, to suit.

    Don’t ask me how long it took to customise my first blog. I was DETERMINED to get it right and days later I did *sigh* LOL
