Evesdropping?



I do believe Blogger has been listening to my threats of decamping to Windows Live Writer to compose my posts, for what should appear before me today, but a new 'design' option on my dashboard! Being one of life's curiosity cats, I had to explore, and have been cajoled to click me some clicks and alter the mix...as is now apparent on my blogpage. (Well, it is showing as changed on my computer- I have yet to see whether you all get the new, wide screen version of jinksy jabber as well. I don't trust Blogger quite yet...I wonder why?!)

The excitement of a new look has gone to my head, and my ditty box has already churned out a little something on Fridge Soup, so may I direct you to it's cauldron, if you wish to sample today's tasty morsel of doggerel, jinksy style...I feel like I'm hatching...

  1. I also received the new design option in Blogger and have yet to try it out. I like what you've done here.

  2. I redesigned my blog recently. Your design came through very nicely.

    When I switched to Blogger In Draft as default composing window, I got a lot more choices, but some oddities I have not yet been able to unravel.

  4. Yes - it popped up on my page too and I was sorely tempted but short of time. Like your new look (remember the 'new look' in 1946? Those were the days eh - computers - never heard of them!

  7. I've had NOTHING to do with Windows or any other Bill Gates product for as long as I can remember and I got the same unasked for changes from Blogger regarding the "design" of my blog. Now, after stumbling and fumbling about, my blog looks just like Delwyn's blog, A Hazy Moon, but that's okay. I love her blog.

  11. I like your new look.
    I also had the option but being a creature of habit, I feel at home in my blog now and don't want to change it!

  13. Yes I was given the option as well but since it hasn't been all that long since decorated over at my place I think I will leave it a while.

  15. Oodalolly Jinsky. I had to look twice to make sure it was you. Love it-so fresh. Say what- you just happened to have a dragon hatching out of an egg!!

  16. Very clean and pleasing! I really like this colour background, although didn't your smiley face use to be nearer the top? - that pic is very welcoming and I'd be tempted to suggest putting it above 'blog archives'

    Oh, and I always meant to ask - what is 'napple' anyway?

  17. Jinksy, I was also REALLY excited about this new design option! Yours is great... I'm trying to think of what this background colour is called. Seafoam? That little dinosaur (or lizard) hatching is adorable! I'm glad you feel that way. This new look adds professionalism to our blogs.

  22. Oh, your new look is gorgeous. Love the cool soft colour. And your page almost goes from left to right on my screen here. It definitely looks wider.
    Well done, you little dragon ;-)

Curiosity Cats can leave a whisker here...but not before noting, please, that I choose to have an award free, tag free, meme free blog. But by all means, talk to me by email - I love to 'chat'...
