UNDER CONSTRUCTION (Or: Learning Headway)

Hile, inklings! Just FYI, my blog is under construction until further notice. I’ve just switched over to Headway themes, and it’s gonna take me a while to get things arranged to suit me. < sarcasm > I LOVE changing user interface. < / sarcasm >

At least I’ve been able to get my background and header to look mostly the way I’d like them to. Now, if only I can find all my widgets. Pesky, elusive little things, those.

Once I’m done tinkering, I’ll make an announcement and you can all come ooh and aah over the whole kaboodle. In the meantime, as you see changes here and there, please bear with me — and feel free to give me feedback!

Thanks, y’all. As always, happy reading!

Addendum:

It’s now 24 hours since I wrote the above, and I can safely say that Headway rocks. I’ve been tinkering and tweaking, and I’m doing stuff with the blog that I once-upon-a-time had to ask my programmer friends to do for me. As far as I’m concerned, Headway has already paid for itself: I’m able to be more creative with and personalize the look of my blog, and I’m saving my friends the headache of getting panicky emails from me every five minutes. Everybody wins. BANGERANG.

Fling this post into the ether of internetted winds, that it might implant itself in a bazillion other consciousnesses and hasten the onset of my world dominion. ...Wait -- did I say that out loud?Buffer this pageDigg thisEmail this to someoneShare on FacebookFlattr the authorTweet about this on TwitterShare on StumbleUponShare on TumblrShare on RedditPin on PinterestShare on LinkedInShare on Google+

    Your blog looks so pretty and professionally done! I love your header pic.

    Thank you so much for mentioning this in any entry. I usually have problems with trying to figure out CSS, especially on WordPress. This looks like an awesome theme builder. I see an investment in the near future.

    • Aw, thanks for the compliment, Anna! And yes, I would say that Headway is well worth the investment. After two years of working with free WordPress themes and never being satisfied, I finally feel like the blog is shaping up to be what I want it to be. There are still a few kinks I want to work out, but I’m getting good help from Michael, one of the developers.

      If you do decide to get Headway, I recommend watching the video tutorials they offer. Some of the behind-the-scenes stuff of Headway is not necessarily self-explanatory — at least not to someone as inexperienced with web development as I am. ; ) The tutorials told me exactly what I needed to do, and how and where to do it.
