Suggestions?

Okay, here's the deal: I want to change this blog. I don't know how or where or what, though. I do have a lot of ideas but before I do anything, I want to know what some of you think.

Should I switch to another service? Should I just mess with the layout and the header? (In which case, who knows code?!)

Any thoughts? Anyone? I have some friends that can/will help me but none of them have blogs. It'd be nice to know what others think.

Thanks for the help- I will find a way to repay! Promise!

As long as you don't change the content, anything is good! I know a little about the code, but for me, I've just used the backgrounds and such that they have, so can't help much there (although if you go to www.hotfreelayouts.com I think you can get code there that works with blogger too, it's good for myspace). My thinking, a beach/running theme...maybe some sailing? Shows all your passions then! (I really should get a beach theme done on mine!). As far as service, I don't know if changing would be a big deal, although if you do, you better send me the new link!

Ahh is this the curse of a blogger? The need to change and upgrade? Because I feel the same impetus. Worpress allows you to sign up for free - so you can give it a try and see if you like. Typepad gives you one month free, same deal. You may find you like how Blogger works and then just getting some help/pay someone to make it more "you"!

i've really enjoyed my switch over to wordpress from blogger. seems others are making the trek. and i know people on typepad who like it as well. i know jack about code but i'm all for redecorating. :)

I'm a big chicken when it comes to making structural changes, as I know just enough code to get myself into trouble. I'm all for making design changes, if it helps make your blog feel like a special place to you again.

I think you should change it into a racecar. Palindromes are cool.

Well you HAD to know I was going to be leaving a comment about this! ;) As a recent switcher to wordpress I have to say, I like it. A lot. Like I like George Clooney like. It just seems easier. But if you decide to stay with blogger and just change your header, I will still like you. :)

I know nothing about other servers etc I like blogger because it is simple but that's me. Look forward to seeing the changes.
Also _ i need to email you some questions about the island.

I'm a wordpress cheerleader. And really, we have better shoes over here, so that's a plus too.

Annnnnnnd when I get the redecorating urge all I have to do is upload a photo and my blog is new and improved.... just sayin'

Maybe play with the colors and layout. You could get a fliker photo widget for your sidebar and have a slide show going...

It has to be a design of extraordinary creativity and appeal for the form to match or even come close to the content.

I personally found Blogger's templates rather limiting unless you're really good with this sort of thing.

I really like my Typepad blog. You can try it out for free for a month and cancel at the end if you don't like it. It does cost money, but it's so much better. So much more customizeable (sp?). Let me know if you have any questions.

You really are a saint for tolerating me.
