but energy is funny in the way that it works. as i come back around to a place where i not only need to write, but can and am able to, and want to, and feel like i have something to say, all the other parts of my life have their own active energies.
i’ve spent the last few days driving around, and it’s been all about doing for others. which is good, and wonderful, and i’m happy to do… but doesn’t leave much keyboard time. there are stories that come out of that, and they’ll be up here soonish.
meantimes, i’m still nosing around for a design. found one that might work, but it’s a linkware template that’s also being used by a far more well-known blogger than me, and while the template is share and share alike, it still feels a bit awkward to use the same one. found another that almost fit, being all garden-y, but it was too green. yeah, hard to believe anything could be too green for me, but there you have it.
there’s one other i really want to use, but it has a usability issue. or, it might. i’m not sure. see, there’s a marquee graphic that i adore. it’s the reason i want to use the template. however, at least with the resolution i’m using, it appears to take up the whole screen, and you need to scroll to see that there’s anything else to see, if you know what i mean. there’s nothing on the graphic to click, or to indicate you could scroll… would this be a problem for anyone? does that make the space less inviting? do you want to see words or some sort of navigation aid right off the bat? i know it’s only a problem at some resolutions, but since i don’t know which ones, that’s been enough to keep me from diving in whole hog.
what say you? how much does it matter what the place looks like?
(and have you gotten outside to enjoy the sun today?)
