Stir Me Crazy!!!

On a Friday evening, having finished all my pending works a day ahead…aaaaaaahhhhhhh at last got some time to wander in my utopia…:) Should say it is a real stress buster…even better than shopping…:)

So wanted to change the look of my blog for so many reasons
1.I’m too bored with my blog’s skin.
2.Think it is in trend now....saw so many people doing it and their space looks really great and inviting too!!!
3.Might attract more readers/ the same readers to read my blog.

So mission started at around 12 p.m today.

I was looking for different templates and I chose a very pretty one in the combination of black and blue…my favorite colors….I was all teeth…eeeeeeeeee:E I downloaded it and pasted in my ‘Edit HTML’ space, clicked ‘Preview’ and closed my eyes. Just preparing myself to see my blog (at last) looking really cool and warm [What?%&!@]

Ya, I opened my eyes in less than a minute with so much of expectation to see my utopia in black and blue….and still my teeth showing eeeeee.[Remember the orbit gum ad….here I replace the Cow….trust me.. ya I do replace and not duplicate]

O M Goooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooood

It was not B&B but all White and Red. Though I liked the white I hated the “Red” there.
It said some error “blah blah xml blah blah close all tags” Shit man…again…what the hell is ths???? This language scares me :( Now what is this xml crap.

I tried again and again in all possible ways with different templates. Some one asked me to try dreamweaver...I thought it was dreamviewer...ok fine I did download it but what to do with this dreamweaver/viewer. This was even more complicated. By then it was 4 p.m. I would have annoyed at least 5 of my friends… not letting them do their work and enquiring about what to do with that xml error and racked 3 to fix it immediately, where only 1 at least tried something and said “SORRY”.

Why should this happen to me? Only me???? My eeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee was no more there and it was mmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmm now... completely zipped up. I still remember struggling to fix the blogroll thing in my blog and one fine day [probably should have been my lucky no luckiest day..] I fixed it and slowly made it look better……if not the best.

Seeing me struggle even past 5 p.m, my friend suggested me ‘Why not ask your blog friends?” Ya not a bad idea…but how well can they communicate through mails and comments. I was thinking for a while….then came to a conclusion….Why not try it coz I have no other option left.

So here is the birth story of this blog….Now, are all those kind hearted bloggers ready to pool in your valuable suggestions?

P.S – Pls “bulb” kuduthudadheenga …tell me whatever you know.
This drives me crazy :(
