Blog Stuff

I want to redesign my blog.

Like a complete overhaul.

It's driving me bonkers.

Anyone want to do a complete overhaul for me, with my own URL {not this convoluted ridiculous one I have right now because I didn't know what I was doing when I first set it up?}, a new design, new way of commenting, etc?? If you know HTML, are cheap, and interested, let me know! :)

If not, I'm going to have to just survive it. I just want something different and am antsy for something more interesting and not so... blah.

A big thing for me right now is renaming the blog and reformatting how I do things. I'm tired of this blog supposedly being focus on my illness, because I prefer to be able to also talk about other things. I feel like I've confused my audience. I get a lot of emails from people trying to promote health-related things here and tell me stuff about Fibro and what not.

Then there are those who aren't here for reading all about Fibro. And since I intermingle my topics, Fibro or other stuff {and then of course all the oodles of pictures}, I feel like I'm being unfair.

And I'm just really tired of having it be all about Fibro. I want to have a life & faith blog instead, with sometimes talking about how Fibro is part of my life.

So now that I've confused my audience and am not sure I have that many reading anymore despite that the hit counter keeps going up but I so rarely get comments, I can't help but think it's time for an overhaul.

How to go about it though is yet to be determined. If you have any ideas, I'd be happy to hear them.

Rochelle,

I highly recommend WordPress on your own domain name. You can register a name for abou $10 and hosting is only a few dollars a month. WordPress is free, and there are lots of free themes so you can find the one that's right for you. And there are tons of free plugins that give you all kind of functionality.
