Low-tech me

For a mad moment this morning I thought about updating my blog layout to one of the bells and whistle ones. I even tried it and then got in a panic when my blog counter disappeared. I hunted through various Blog Help advice to try and see where the original template was stored. I wasn't thrilled with the replacement layout; I'm a creature of habit really and I like a lot of things to remain constant.

Anyway, panic over, I reverted to my original layout and I even c&p'd some html(she said proudly) into my page to reinstall the counter, which is now a scrolling version of what I had before. I could easily try and become more of a Modern Person with all this html lark, but I'll just bury myself in studies of 18th Century Europe and leave all the techy stuff to you lot.

Oh that's cool. I can hurry the roll up with my mouse. I wish I could do that with movie credits. I mean, who cares who drove the trucks?

Sometimes I get in a sort of daydream when watching movie credits and sit and see every last one. Some of the job roles that are credited sound so bizarre these days.

Hi thanks for your visit. I would love to know more about editing HMTL(now that is a sentence I never thought I 'd write!!)

I'm one of the least techy people in the universe living with a techy genius. And none of it's rubbed off in spite of a lot of patience on his part and a lot of upward rolling of eyes on mine - if you know what I mean (like Kevin and Perry).

of course anyone coming back to this post and reading these comments will think 'hang on, this looks a pretty modern template to me'. I did in fact pluck up the courage to update my blog quite soon after posting this admission of weakness and fear :)
