Blog Design Syndrome

I’m not sure what it is about me—I just can’t seem to let my blog look the same for more than a few weeks at a time.  I change the background like I’m changing outfits or something (which I was never much into until I had a teenage daughter, by the way.  Lately  I’m enjoying shopping for clothes almost as much as I enjoy shopping for art supplies or photography equipment. Almost…)

About my blog design—  now and then,  I can see the confused faces clear over here—Waaaait a minute… Is this the same blog I visited last week??  Weren’t there some birds or something in the background before?   What is with this woman anyway?  I sometimes hear  my mom’s voice in my head saying, “Leave well enough alone, Pam.”  (My mom was AWESOME.  And I still miss her.)  But I’ve never been one to leave well enough alone.  (Sometimes a good thing, sometimes not.)

In the spirit of the annoying trend in the medical profession of giving an official sounding diagnosis to a  list of symptoms, I’ve decided to diagnose my own set of frenetic symptoms as “Blog Design Syndrome.”  Who’s with me—anyone else have Blog Design Syndrome?  You know who you are…

  1. I definitely suffer from the same syndrome, but I do believe that I'm getting better. I used to go on Scrapblog all the time and create all sorts of new headers. I don't really have the time for that, anymore, so I think I might be on the road to recovery!

  2. I've known folks who change their blog design a couple times a month every year. It's like re-arranging furniture.

    I think a blog's content is what brings readers back and yours seems great!

    I'm your newest follower. Please stop by and say hi.

  3. I used to be like that, but now I just do it to seasons.

    Thank you so much for stopping by on my SITS Day. I appreciate it very much.

  4. Sometimes its so much fun to redesign a blog! It's like redecorating a room in your home, or revamping your wardrobe. It's a fresh change of scenery and a chance to be creative.

  5. Thanks all for your feedback. I just recently changed my blog header, and it was the first time I ever made my own! I never knew how fun that would be!
