The Revamp

I was looking at my blog this morning and thought - my online home desperately needs a change in the colors on its wall and some new pictures to hang on it.

The old one was nice, but I thought it was probably becoming a little to dull & drab with the shades of black & grey all over it. The only reason I kind of loved it was the header picture of that street, but then, that was also kind of contributing to the dull look.

Its hard work when you have to change templates, because you have to sit and add all your links again of all your fave things and that kind of had been stopping me from changing my template too often. But then, became too much for me too!!

So decided to do some researching for some good templates, tested them and tried mix & match with pictures, and finally decided this was the best.

Looks pretty refreshing, ain't it?

Do you happen to think I can do some thing more to this page or does this look fine just the way it is?

BTW - one question. I wanted to add that 'Read More' link option on my posts - but not able to understand how to do it actually. Any ideas please?

I was reading this.

But I could not find the 'Insert Jump Break' button and when I tried the HTML way, I got some error. Anybody good at fixing that part?

Green is always nice. So is white :D
And you're at it regularly! Good girl Sin! Hope I am not jinxing it :P

The option is available only for new blog post editor. You have to manually enable the new blog post editor

Go to Blogger Dashboard >> Settings >> Basic. Scroll down and look for Select post editor. Select Updated editor and save settings. Now all your blogs will have this new post editor.

Khushi said...

ah.... this is a super duper template.. it is full of LIFE :)

read more... no idea!

Ellen said...

I think this new template is a refreshing contrast to the previous one you used. And if you are even more inclined to, you can experiment with the other hues of yellow or green and further complement it with the right contrast for zest. Working with colors is indeed an adventure in itself. :-) Wishing you a lovely day and much fun with family and friends.

God bless.

Sindhu :) said...


WH!! And my WH is a Welcome Home for you :)

I used to have some awards on my page too - need to add them still ... let me know if you need any help!

Sindhu :) said...


Good to see you here :) And thanks about the template!

Sindhu :) said...



Know what - I think I am going to try something on the font color for the post... and try it in just hues of green for the whole page. Lets see :)

Sindhu :) said...

Hi Dharma!

Jitu said...

LOvely lovely shades of green. :)

Soooo soothing!!

I don't like dull colours.... specially now when my attention span seems to reduce more and more...

This is cool.

I think I'll visit this place just to hang out.. if nothing else. :)

LOvely makeover Sin!!


Abhishek Khanna said...

dont welcome me.. i am a regular here.. but too lazy to write "nice post", "you blog well" and "wow" kind of comments..

btw u sure you din mess up with anything else except enabling the post editor? Coz i have done/helped doing that setting on numerous blogs

Sindhu :) said...


Finally you are here!

And what attention span and all you are talking about like one old lady!!! x-(

Sindhu :) said...


:)) Ok ... :D

And about the jump link - yea.. I did what you told me about updating the editor and then followed the instructions from the webpage link I gave...!

Shruti said...

Hey Sindhu! My first time here.. came here thru.. umm.. a common friend :)

I don't know if this template is better than ur previous one coz I have never seen the previous one :P
But I have to tell u, this is very lemony n fresh!
There are 2 things u could do for ur readers' convenience though!
1. Increase font size :P Its way too tiny and
2. Only 2 posts per page?? Make it 7 na. It isn't that heavy a page. Will load quickly even if u have 7 posts.
See ya again! :)
