I feel a little like the old-time treasure hunters. I really believe that I'm searching for something that is just out of my reach. If I only put in more time, or pay more money, or look at another website, I will be rewarded. I am a moron.

Yes, I am still looking at blog designs. No, I am not any happier than I was before. If anything, I am LESS happy, because I spent the weekend sitting in my chair and staring at the computer instead of enjoying the lovely weather we are finally having in Name of Town Withheld.

I now have Wordpress and Typepad accounts. The main advantage, as far as I can tell, is that the URLs match my blog title. (When I started this blog two years ago, I named it "Steve & Megan", because I thought Steve would write here, too. I renamed it after he only posted once in the first year.) I am spending hours looking at templates, convinced that the perfect one is just a click away.

I am an idiot.

Have you checked this out?
I've been htinking about changing my blog as well - but so far it's only a thought. No time invested, yet!

I think this is the same behavior noted in drug addicts. You're constantly chasing after that first high, convinced that each hit you take will return you to your former glory, when all it is really doing is sinking you deeper into the pit of despair.

That's a great observation.

My behaviour over the past couple of days has been completely illogical. Even after I decided I needed to hire someone, I continued to search for the perfect template I could install by myself.

Oh I am so glad I don't worry about blog design - it sounds very stressful.

I never notice anyone's design to be honest. I am just a words girl.

Hope you sort it soon though for the sake of your sanity and that of everyone else around you.
