Post-party odds and ends, and a dumb question
OK, here’s the dumb question first: How do you guys, my readers, see my blog? I’m talking purely visuals here.
Let me explain. I have viewed my blog from my AOL browser and through Internet Explorer, and I’ve viewed it signed in and signed out of Blogger. No matter how I look at it, I see the same thing: All the print, the photos, etc. are on a white background. Then, surrounding that white background is a red-and-pink floral border.
This weekend, a friend came to me and said that he loved my blog but found it a bit hard to read with the floral background. Huh? I said the background is white and the flowers only surround it, but he said no… the entire background is floral and all the copy sits over that. Ugh!
No one else has commented about the readability or the overabundance of flowers, but that’s certainly not what I want. I am not that girly! So please let me know what you see. It frustrates me to think that I’m seeing one thing and everyone else sees another.
The post-party drop is setting in. Nothing too heavy, no weepiness or anything like that, just a general blech. Perfectly normal after so much excitement. The party feedback, comments and messages have been flying all over the Shadow Lane board and on FetLife, and I’ve been having lots of fun with them. I got my blogs out rather quickly (I have to, so I won’t forget), but others are just starting with theirs, so there is more fun reading to come.
Oh, and Mike Tanner sent me the cell phone shot taken of my bottom on Saturday. It had already slightly faded, but here I am after five with the “family strap”:
And allow me to amend something stated previously: I had said that our friend CO Carolyn had taken 20 with the family strap. She had not; she only took 18. That wimp. 😀
OK… I really do need to do something or another that’s not post-party related. This week has been a complete wash!
