My 1st year bloggerversary [sic?] passed (last month) uncelebrated. I was so busy with the Castle Cake and just life in general that I didn't really think too much about how far I've come with my blog. I thought that I ought to at least thank the many visitors to my blog for their thoughtful comments and to the many "lurkers" out there who just stop by for a looksie...
The other day, I wanted a change for my blog.
A big change.
Not just colour, but a total revamping. I do this often with my hair too. Sometimes I just go into my hairstylist and say to him that I need a change. Sometimes I regret saying that--kind of. I did that a few weeks ago and my long hair is now a chin length asymmetrical bob. I don't like it because I think it's too short, but I asked for it and it's a good cut. So I'll stop whining about it 'cause it'll grow back.
As you can see, I went from black to all girlie pink. You know I hate pink, but I love cake...and cupcakes in particular. So I couldn't pass up this template. In the middle of the excitement of foolin' with my template in html, I kind of hit the wrong button and changed everything permanently before really thinking things through. I lost all my widgets. I screwed up a bunch of settings.
I hate html. That's of course because I have no idea what I'm doing. I just kind of cross my fingers and my toes and hope all goes well. I figure the world's not going to end if I give it a try. So here it is. Tell me what you think! Be honest! I was hesitant in changing from an all black template to a primarily white one because I know that black conserves energy and white doesn't. So though this isn't exactly a green template, it'll do for a while. Besides, it's too late to change! I saved my old template but I'm in too deep now. There's no going back. So please excuse the construction mess for a while.
While tinkering with the html in my template, I even dared to "expand" my widgets and fiddle with adding those expandable post summaries. Unfortunately, I have no idea what to do with my past posts that all now have a "read more" at the bottom but don't really take you anywhere because there isn't more to be read. I guess I'll just start from here on. I think I totally need the expandable post summaries because I tend to be verbose and blah blah a bit too much. But heck, that's what a blog's for, isn't it? It's my soapbox to the world.
Sherry Yard's Mascarpone Banana Cake isn't fancy and isn't frosted, but it is quite yummy and will do quite well for my bloggerversary. I expended my energy with changing the look of my blog and didn't quite have any more patience to bake a real layer cake. The rich mascarpone provides a moist crumb and who doesn't love banana cake?
