Blogging for Dummies

Am I allowed to change my blog name? I don't think I can. I really didn't know what to name my blog when I got it. Now I know what I would have named it, "Wasting Time Away Again in Bloggeritaville". Maybe I can add in small font below my desired title above my existing title, "General Ramblings of a Premenopausal Middle Aged Woman". Can I do that? Are there rules? I don't think I can.
I have made a few blog rolls. I am on technori and that will certainly stink it up. Dang! I love that name. But then again, does it really matter? I couldn't even make my header that I have on now. Charnita had to do that for me. It was out of pure heartfelt sympathy that she did it. She realized, and yet, she still befriended me. Sniff, sniff.
Ya'll I still cannot figure out how to pimp my blog like so many happening places I hang out at. I am such a decorating loser. Last night I stayed up well past midnight trying to put on a custom background. I changed the wrong thing and thus had to click on a new layout to fix my error. I couldn't just take it off. No, it wasn't that simple. At least not for me. I have exposed myself to all of you now, for the computer dummy that I am. Don't even say that you had suspected....

I say you can change anything you want whenever you want. It's your space, girl. Make it how you want it! (Reminds me of that song...Grab it like you want it...oh, the horror). Anyway, I had to pay someone to help me with my layout. I'm a dummy like that too.

I don't have a clue?!?!?!
I'm soooooooooooooooooooo lost on all of this! My page is the basic layout that blogger offers! UGH! I would like a pimpin page too! So let me know if you dig one up! =)

I posted today and there is a FUNNY story about you in it! HA!

I never thought "Premenopausal Middle Aged Woman" really fit you anyways. Pickup you 5 favorites and make a poll!

Leigh said...

Thanks Emily for the encouragement. Who did your layout? It is cute.

Shannon-Oh, good! I am all over that! Hope I win!

J-that is me too! I read the story. Sorry I blew the one peice for you. But it's true. There is nothing worse that being at the pool feeling like a dang sausage casing. And the only bubbles in there better be from slashing....

Hewy-FABULOUS idea! Maybe I should let people send in contributions? Thanks!!! I think?

You can absolutely change it! As long as the address itself doesn't change, you an rename your blog every day!! :-)

Found you via Blissfully Domestic - I am a wanna be photographer... ;-)

I've noticed many times that people's title and blog address don't match, so yes. I wish you could change your blog address as well if you do change your title (it's too bad there's not a feature for that).

After reading the dairy post I'd go with "The Calf Whisperer"

Leigh said...

I dont think so Dullbert!

Charnita's Xpressions said...

I will be glad to make you a new header, my friend.....
change away!
And I can assist with backgrounds.
and it is not as easy as it should be, I have to admit.
I screwed up mine lots of times.

Leigh, if you go to Settings and Layout there is a section for Title. You will have to change your header picture, but either charnita or I can help you with that!

Let me know!

Charnita and Southener-You are both SO awesome to offer help. I wouldnt want to put you out. But on the other hand, if you want to do something go for it. I am thinking now that I like the name "Tales from Bloggeritaville". I kinda goes along with my love of the beach and music. what cha think?
