Is Lady Jan's Blog a Fixer-upper?

These blog we get here for free are pretty basic, but we can treat them like a fixer-upper kinda like renovating a house.

I've changed the font, and then enlarged the font when Ipodmomma said she was having problems reading it, and you can do this too in template section of your blog. I did have to experiment to figure it out, and I don't think I can explain how I did it exactly--sorry.

I also added a weather sprite. I noticed that Ipodmomma had one so I click on hers and sure enough it took me to a sight and I was able to get one for my very own. It's even connected in with our own Madera air port weather station, which is just a couple of miles down and around the corner from my house. If you want your own you can click on my weather sprite, and it's free, and you can even pick out which sprite you want too. I picked out the red headed sprite, with the long bangs parted on the same side I do. (In my profile picture you'll notice I took my picture in a mirror so my part is reversed.)

At the bottom of my blog you will notice a counter, I got it from Merle's blog. I clicked on hers and yes it took me to another sight where I signed up for free for mine. Want your own? Click on mine.

All these renovations are of course free! I love a good bargain and your can't beat free!

I've had the site meter ever since I was flamed way back when. It's fun.

Later on the other bells and whistles. My friend Andrea is redoing my template (after she gets back to Canada) and the whole thing will be different.

I'm such a dork when it comes to the technology.

Hi Ann,

Oh, I think it all a lot of fun, and I get to learn something new too!

I finally learned how to put in links to words or a whole sentance a few months back, as I seen other bloggers do and I thought it look real professional.

And I'm looking for a wind chime that moves, and that maybe the next thing I put in.

I'll keep my eyes open and keep trying out new things, and post it here!

Later your Lady Jan~

Hi Ipodmomma,

Thank you, and I think so too. Yeah, I check my wearther sprit out myself, and see how my own weather is doing.

P.S. to Ann I can't wait to see how great your blogs gonna look with the new updates!

Your Lady Jan~

Yes, blogs are "living documents", as they say. Looks like yours is evolving nicely!
