“Ask” checked back in to see if I had listened to their advice. They awarded me a star for the changes I made to my template and the attitude I took towards my review. I appreciate the fact that they checked back.
As for my response to their review…there was no way I was going to submit my blog to a website widely known for tearing bloggers a new one, and then whine about what they said about me. If I wanted gentle and kind I would have submitted my blog to ‘I will inoffensively comment on your writing and template style while taking your feelings into account’.com. Where is the thrill in a site like that? I had hoped they would like me, and their review did piss me off, but I wasn’t about to whine about it.
I needed a new template. I have been working on a WP template for months now, but was scared to try to learn a new blogging tool. Blogger was the devil I knew. It wasn’t until ‘Ask’ smacked me upside the bottom that I finally stopped dragging my feet and jumped in the deep end. I am glad I did. I have so many more options to play with, and more places to put the things I want to share with the you. I am no longer forced to shove all my stuff onto one page.
So I would like to thank Queen Mutha for pointing out the obvious; my previous template was seizure inducing. I am glad she appreciates the new one as much as I do.
