I think I got it

Am gonna keep my fingers crossed and not bother with the extras (the clicks n whistles I had up) until I'm for sure. I can't friggin believe I had to rip it all out and start over. Worse yet? I had to do all the adjusting in FIREFOX to make it work in both browsers.

Ok. Leave the 2 cents below on if it's working properly and which browser you're on. It should be a WHITE background and things should be centered properly.

Also. I'm still taking ideas on a name. Please see previous post for info on that. Friends from 5yrs+ back, you're defeating the purpose of the exercise. You of all people should know that if I'm actually asking for ideas, then I've more than likely been trying to figure it out on my own for a while as it is and I've pretty much gotten frustrated about it (some of y'all know me better than me at times). You also should remember that it's a big deal if I'm ASKING for an idea.... I had a few good ideas (thanks BRM) in the comments and one in email (thanks iggy).

Once I get this one squared away, I'll be doing the same to a few more of the blogs on my account so I can add resource links that correspond to the theme of the blog.

Its startin' to look good...

Hmmm... I'll put on my thinking cap and take an extra long shower in the morning to see if the creative moose whispers sweet blog names in my ear.

It's white, it's centered, it's looking good. And you're frustrated. I feel that way when I'm trying to come up with usernames and passwords for stuff.

Can you just use a spin of your current title that's shorter, more succinct? Consult a thesaurus and maybe something will jump out!

Looks way better! I like simple (and fyi, the background is white on firefox). Bells and whistles usually give me a headache.

The Wife O Riley said...

It looks good! I can only think of Styx Mix.

Pop and Ice said...

It's centered, it's white and it's much more calming than the former layout. I admit I used to get a bit jangled when I first hit your blog and then scrolled down to the *good stuff*!

I'm sorry, I have no idea on a blog name as I haven't read you very long! I delayed starting up my blog for months due to lack of a decent name. And I wanted to find a matching email name and url name.

So now you KNOW how crazy I am :)

Styx and Stones? I am sorry I have no ideas!:)

Queenie Jeannie said...

Right now it's so white and clean looking! I can totally see it filled with a background of wildflowers though!!

I suck at these things but here's two for you. (hey that rhymes!)

1. You're NOT the boss of me!
2. Contained Chaos (Sort of)

See? Yuckydooders.....I'll stick with my cards and call it good...

Queenie Jeannie said...

Ohmygosh! I love the "Styx and Stones" title!!!

~ruthie said...

looks good in firefox. welcome back! i love the clean white background.

Intense Guy said...

I like that Styx and Stones too...

:) I was thinking something inspirational like Rocky Theme, Eye of the Tiger.

Risin' up, back on the street
Did my time, took my chances
Went the distance, now I'm back on my feet
Just a woman with a will to survive! (wink)

So many times, it happens too fast
You change your passion for glory
Don't lose your grip on the dreams of the past
You must fight just to keep them alive.........

Then I thought, didn't Styx have any "inspirational" tunes? And I don't mean "Too Much Time On My Hands" (that one is mine!) I think Crystal Ball is too sad.

Personally I'm not sure why people have trouble with your current title, but if you have to change it then how about one of these:

1. Mended Fractures
2. Tortured Survivor
3. Reigning In Chaos
4. Rebuilding From The Ruins
5. Stumbling Forward
6. Downtrodden But Determined
7. Arisen From The Ashes
8. Survivor Of Life

Or, Kelly's suggestion:

Darkness Before Dawn

OK, so they probably aren't that great, but perhaps they will give you (or someone else) the inspiration required to find that perfect title? Hey, I tried!

Tori_z said...

P.S. I think that Styx And Stones one is cool too! :)

Deanna said...

The site looks exactly the way you say it does on IE. And if we are in the voting mood, I like Styx and Stones so far. I'm not too creative when it comes to names.... :(

Karla said...

Looks just right in IE...and I'm with everyone else..Styx and Stones is very good for you! :-)

Pamela said...

I have some problems with my blog -- which I can't find any answers. When I had my template designed specially for my dust stuff, I lost the ability to have text and photos together. If I put up a small photo, still the text has to be below or above. It won't align.

Anyway - I'm about ready to just quit blogging, I'm so exasperated. Can;'t find any answers at blogger. AT least I haven't found it yet.

And the guy who helped me with my template -- gone. No where to be found.

ChicagoLady said...

Your background is purple to me, and I'm using IE8 (which you know because we talked earlier).

Not sure how I feel about Styx and Stones. Just sort of "eh".

I'm sure you've already checked your thesaurus, but in case you haven't...

Fragment (SYN.) scrap, piece, bit, remnant, part, splinter, segment.

Fracture (SYN.) crack, break, rupture.

Of those, I like splinter best, but have no idea how to incorporate that into a working title for you. I'll have to think some more. Maybe if I had some of the choices you've narrowed it down to I can look at them and offer alternates?
