Well, I finally decided to dive in and "simply" update my header photo. 

Obviously from the above you can see that support was overwhelmingly in favor of the Stepping Stones, which also just so happened to also be my wife's favorite. Go fig.

Yeah, so anyway,  I should have known better than to quickly update the header photo, especially when I'm feeling half brain-dead from a stressful and tiring work day.  But, of course, I didn't.  I plunged ahead.

Here's the thing.  I use a program called Artisteer for blog design.  It's a great tool; very flexible and powerful, WYSIWYG, easy to use, etc. 


Blogger integration is far from flawless. Far from.  I have done a fair amount of post-design XML hand coding to customize things like my social networking links, etc. and NONE of it was preserved after I changed the picture.  Plus about a dozen other things broke in the process of this "minor" update. 

All this is to say the terrific and insightful post I had planned to write tonight didn't get written, and now, after repairing all the damage I inflicted on myself, I'm too tired to finish it. 

I will Tomorrow. I (almost) promise.

PS  If you are a blogger, what do you use for blog/template design.  I know a lot of "real" blogs use Wordpress instead of Blogger, but after starting briefly down that path I became quickly convinced that it was not going to be able to customize it to my satisfaction without a huge learning curve. Any experience and insight you can share would be very helpful!  Thanks.
