Still Searching

I’ve been through at least two different themes and I still am not able to decide on one I like.

Yes, I’m a cheap-skate, because the ones I like, I don’t want to pay for.  I’m after the free themes :-P.

I was using Choco – it was nice, but I got a bit tired of the brown colour, so I’ve now changed it to “Chunk”.  I’ll play around with it and see if I can customize it a bit more to my liking.

Am I ever going to be satisfied with the way my blog looks????

Brrrr

Can we say it’s cold. I think my landlords turned the heat off to help support their daughter’s new condo habit, lol.

So. After a day’s worth of deliberation and contemplation, I have come to the realization that I can’t manage more than one blog site. It’s just too difficult to maintain. I started out with my first blog site .  Actually, wait.  Let me correct myself.  My true first blog site is here.  I totally forgot that I had stuff posted there.  The Blogger site (the first site referred to above), was actually my second blog. What I love about both sites, primarily the Blogger site, is the ease with which one can change up the widget locations on the page.  I also love the ease with which I can post HTML and media.  The concern I had with the above two sites is this – I’m unable to make specific blog entries private.  It’s all or nothing, and that’s not what I’m looking for.  If I’m going to be putting all this time into blogging, I want to at least know that I’m going to be able to make some parts of it “open to the general public.”  I don’t want everything to be a secret!  That’s no fun.

So.  That lead me, late last night, (as you can clearly see in the previous entry’s time stamp), to get the bright idea that I would go searching the web for free, selectively private blog sites.  First I found the LiveJournal site.  I set up a blog there.   I then realized, in my inexperience, the fact that that site is great for people who are looking to post entries with or without complicated pictures/media, however, there was no ability to add widgets which could facilitate what I was looking for.  Okay.  Next!

So.  On to the WordPress.com site.   As I have learnt, this is another site that allows selectively private blogging, while allowing users to utilize widgets/extensive media posting, etc.  Bingo.  I’m a happy camper.

Now.  The problem I have is this – what do I do with my other blog sites?  The LiveJournal one I’m not too worried about.  In fact, I think I’m going to close it after I’m done this entry.   I’m thinking that I’ll move the info on my Blogger and MSN Spaces sites to this current blog instead.  Voila!  One site.  Happy camper.

Now.  I guess the trick to this is finding the time to move everything. 

Done.  I’ll keep you posted on my progress.

In closing, please carefully review the following 😛
