New Look

I've had the hardest time getting Blogger to cooperate with me. It shouldn't be this complicated to get a post written and published to my blog, but for some reason, I have the hardest time. I just published a post I had started a few weeks ago. Am I the only person who finds the blogger photo upload/insertion process dumb? Why won't it put the photo where I want it? Does anybody really want all their photos crammed at the top of the post? If someone has any advice, please share, because there HAS to be an easier way!!

A blogging friend of mine recently told me that she sends her posts via email, so I tried it tonight. Although I did have to go in and relink my images, it is definitely quicker than trying to do the whole thing in blogger. Maybe I can start posting with some regularity now. According to my friend, Royce, my life is interesting enough to blog about, so we'll see.

Tonight I noticed there is a new template designer function and that's where I found this new template. Not much different than the plain white I had before, but I do like the shading on this new one. It adds a little something, something. My favorite feature, was the ability to adjust the width of my blog and the sidebar. It's the little things in life, you know?!?!

I hope to be back tomorrow with another installment of my Tools of the Trade series. I have so many great products to talk about.


  1. I put all my photos in first then put my type where I want it. You have to load your photos backwards, last first. I guess I've gotten use to it by now.

  2. Duh... it never occurred to me to put my pictures in first.

    I love having large photos in my posts and that is one thing I like about posting via email. I can set them the size i want there and be done with it.

    Thanks for the tip!!


comments make me happy!
