It went pretty smooth, except for a few minor issues, that were easily fixed in the settings section. On the Test site, I had a popular posts widget, but it was so slow to load, I decided not to use it. I know not everybody has a super fast machine, and it can get aggravating waiting on a blog to open. I did keep many of my widgets, but intentionally lost a few of them also. I finally got the widget showing all the blogs I’m following to work, I hope it does not slow things down too much.
If you check some comments, you’ll find that they show MyBlogLog avatars. If you don’t have an account yet, you should sign up, it’s a great community similar to BlogCatalog. It’s a good way to find new blogs, and meet new people. You can also follow blogs through them, and they have some great statistical information.
I guess I’m getting a little better at this, because it only took me two hours to get it all set back up. One of these days, I keep saying that, I’m going to get serious about learning some HTML and CSS. I think it would be fun to develop my own template, and use it. Guess what kind of theme I would use. You got it, I’ ld come up with a more worn looking Blue Jean theme, with three sidebars. I like having the larger sidebar on top, and the other two below it.
I’m going to keep looking for a way to add a popular posts widget to the tabbed navigation one. I know it can be done, I think I have even seen one, I just need to learn how. Give me enough time, and I’ll get things really figured out then I can start having fun with the template design.
If anyone has any trouble loading my site, please let me know.
