Back to the old blogger layout ...

Well, in the end, I caved in. As much as I liked the clean, tidy look of the dynamic templates, I just got a little tired in end of having all the gadgets hidden away - I do, for example, like to be able to check updates from my bloglist without having to look it up on the dashboard (which I hardly ever visit otherwise). So, it's cluttered again but at least I can use my own header now!

Anyway, here's Bella again. She's found a new fave hideout - under the garden tablecloth. I found her the other day, baked soft and gooey by the spring sun; I keep pulling her out and she scuttles back in!
So, now I'm working on making an alternative cave for her, soemthing that's light and airy while keeping the sun out. I've tried a couple of things but nothing's been approved yet ...

  1. I know the other layout is more "marketing" but the old one is so much easier. I have a hard time finding the sliding bar and sometimes I just quit. A gooey bella... : ) i am so envious of her

    Happy Tuesday Nancy xx

    1. well, I did really like the layout and the system of thumbnails rather than the whole post, but I know what you mean about the sliding bar - especially when the page doesn't load properly or the bar is actually in the way of the scroller so, yeah, I guess I'm a little bitter but mostly because it looked better than it actually was ;)

  2. Spring sun not much where I am at the moment I envy her. Enjoy your spring warmth and I hope a den meets her approval soon.

    1. Bella's hasn't gone out yet today, but when she does, she's got a little surprise waiting for - I hope it meets her approval, too! And I hope you get your spring soon! I't quite lovely here right now :)

    Cuidate de esos dolores de cabeza.
    Tú sabes español. y puedes leer lo que yo escribo en mis dibujos, Ja Ja. (digo, por eso de "se fueron los turistas" sí, tú sabrás de eso, pues supongo vives en un lugar turístico, como yo. pero resulta que después del verano regresaron para Pascuas!! ja ja.

    1. lol, sí, el "tourist season" es tan intenso que, aunque me encanta conocer nueva gente, es un alivio cuando de repente tengo la playa para mi sola ... ;)
      B&B - so that's your other work, besides being an artist! Interesting, I picture you hiding in the wine cellar, drawing on bottles, rather than waiting on the guests! hehe, that was mean, I'm sure your guests more than appreciate living with artists :)

  4. Welcome back to the "old" layout, LOL! :) Well, we'll soon lose all our lovely blog roll widgets since Blogger is going to cancel Google Reader (July)... :( from what I got through other blogs, we'll have to check updates through other methods, such as Bloglovin. I loved it the way it was!!
    Hehehe... Bella is a CAT... and a GIRL for that matter... and kitty girls have their own mind, LOL! Good luck with her approval! ;D
