New Problems...New Templates

Wednesday, July 8 |

I have not been able to blog a lot lately so I was unaware of the craziness here on LLnL. My good friend LazyKing ,of Bored... Get Unbored, alerted me that my template had some serious issues. The lovely red couch and the sleek grey floor that I love, was replace with small photobucket images letting me know that band with was an issue.(like I know what band width is)

It's happen before, that template is so popular that at certain times too many people are using it and the person who uploaded the pictures has to purchase more bandwidth. For the tech literate I am so sorry if that does not make sense, baby steps. So instead of waiting for the problem to work itself out, or spending hours trying to recreate the template by adding in all the pictures myself by hand, which did not work as well as you'd think, I decided to through caution to the wind and change my template, I mean my templates. On the other blogs I had been toying with the idea of having all new templates. With 8 different blogs the eyes gets tired of seeing the same images, so why not find appropriate templates each blog. Why, because it takes a lot of time and it is hard to remain consistent, but I took it as a challenge.

So please check it out and tell me what you think. I did this all in one day so please forgive the kinks as I try to figure things out myself. I lost some comment too when I switched : ( but I know that attachment brings suffering; in others words I have to get over that and make sure that I set up LL&L encouraging everyone to comment freely. So please let me know what you like, dislike and any problems that you have.

What about my read couch. I do love it and it seems so appropriate for LLnL so it might come back to the home page. For now it is gone and all I have is the ..........

nice work with all the templates. Chnaging them is a good idea. But the same template for all the blog made us feel like we were still on the same blog and the same spirit.
If you feel every part of llnl deserves a unique template, that's probably the best thing to do :)

PS: thnaks for the shoutout

Thank you for the comment. I liked feeling like I was in the same blog too. I'm not sure what I like better so comments are important to me.

i too say go for it if you feel you want go that route. i actually like the idea of the same template, same spirit as @lazyking mentioned. maybe you could just make the carnival different?

I don't like the carnival template either, so I might start with that one. In the free side of Wordpress there are not many template choices, but I know that I can do better than than I have. Thank you.

I love that Red Couch too.. Hope you'll bring that back :) any way this template is simple & cool. In my opinion i prefer different templates for different blogs. Sometimes i can't differentiate where i am :)

who is Jane Doe??

@Doson - I am so happy you like the red couch. I thought it would be easy to get rid of but I really did fall in love with that template. Thank you for your input.

@LazyKing- She's a new guest blogger. She's new to blogging but she is not new to writing. I hope that she will contribute weekly but she has a lot of interest so I invited her to the different blogs. Please show her lots of love.

I'm guessing that picture bandwidth issue is related to the 'free' part of some site. I notice problems of pics not loading on my blog often. They are the ones hosted by imageshack's free service - so free isn't always free?

One thing I like about your template and the old one too - is the tabbed links across the top (below the header).

From what I noticed on the very bottom, I gather you loaded this template from some free service?

I don't think the template matters too much but you do want it to help. The content is the most important of course.

I recently redid my blog page and changed its name slightly...it took me 4 days to do. So,you did a great job in one day and it looks good. I must admit I like the Carnival pic; it's different
I also agree with Virgo27 Nice work, not only design but writing too! My best
