Check Out My New Look

I spent hours, literally hours, last night looking at templates for my blog.  I saw some amazingly beautiful ones but none quite worked with what I wanted in the sidebars.  I was hoping for a nice centred blog with a right and left sidebar, page links, pretty yet readable colours and a decent header - a mixture of whimsy and professionalism, not sure that's even possible.  I couldn't find the one so I settled for a template partly because I was feeling the name.  Tired Girl.  That was me after looking at hundreds of blog templates. 

I like it.  I do.  But I don't love it.  It's not really me but I don't have the energy to look again for a few days.  I don't want to mess around with templates myself because I know me.  And I know that I'm rusty.  I won't get anything else done for two weeks while I try to perfect it.  I was supposed to be getting some work done when I initially got distracted by layouts and themes.  Then I was supposed to be sleeping.  I knew I shouldn't have started googling templates at that time of night. 

Knowing my luck, I'll see the same template elsewhere today and have to change it again straightaway.  I don't know how people find the perfect website design, blog template, book cover, etc.  If anyone has the secret, please let me know.  :)  I don't know why it is so important to me to get the right blog template when I'm so half hearted about book covers but it just is.  I've looked at my blog about seven times since I started writing this post and I'm liking it less each and every time.  I'm feeling writer's doubt setting in except it's aimed at my blog's appearance.  Maybe I don't like it after all.

Expect changes . . .
