I Got Nuthin’

Seriously. I have nothing for you today. I should be working on my JuNoWriMo word count; instead, I’m browsing WordPress themes, because “Forever” isn’t doing it for me anymore. I like it, but the header font is flimsy, and I can’t afford to customize (even though I found the perfect font… sigh). I haven’t found anything that really matches the image I want to project, so maybe I’ll just go with something fun, see how that goes.

I know, such a professional, right?

Also, I changed my gravatar image to show you what a mean Groucho Marx impression my cat Charlie and I can do when we team up. You’re welcome.

    I’m looking to switch my theme too, because replies to comments show up further to the left than the original comment, and it drives me NUTS (seriously, WTF?). Ah, WordPress…

      I’ve noticed that when I’m commenting on blogs with that theme, and it drives me nuts, too! Makes no sense to me at all. It’s a cute theme, but yeah… bonkers.

        If the premium subscription thing included access to all the premium themes, I might actually do that. 😛

          Wouldn’t that be amazing? They’re so expensive! And still, none of them are what I’m looking for. I could probably do a lot with the premium subscription in terms of customization (and I’d love t own my domain), but I don’t have $99 a YEAR to pay for it. Maybe some day, if I was making money from my writing, I could invest in it. Right now, much as I adore the < 200 people who follow my blog, I just can't justify the expense.
