Weekend fun (or frustration)
Well, not the new template. That's for sure!
I have it 99.9% done. There is one little tiny thing that I cannot get to work. I've labored long and hard over it and I'm completely stumped. It's totally usable. But it's not perrrrfect. Ms Obsessive Compulsive demands perfection, doncha know?
The problem is, I made a new banner. It's 950px in width. I place said banner on my template on the main space, which is also 950px wide. You would think that this would allow the banner to stretch over the entire width of the main space. You would be so wrong. For some reason, the banner absolutely will not cooperate with me. I've made it bigger, smaller, and just right. Just call me Goldilocks, Blog Designer. Or not. Because no matter what changes I make, and they were legion, the banner always behaves the exact same way. It leans to the left, it will not center, and it will not fit across the entire width of the required space.
Why is this a problem? Because it's not symmetrical. I cannot deal with it being out of symmetrical order. It looks wrong.
Now, don't go thinking that this is the only thing that's not absolutely perfect. I'm working in a sandbox, and until I get the glob, oh, I mean blog, up there are going to be some ugly little things that I'm going to have to just breathe through. Like my google ads, which are currently green but must immediately change color or I will combust.
Don't get me wrong. I love doing this. I honestly do. It's fun and it exercises my brain. I like fooling with code. I like playing with Illustrator and Photoshop. But lordy, when something stares me in the face for a whole weekend and I can't see what the problem is, I get a tad bit frustrated. You might even say I'm 'testy'. Because I am.
I promise you, once I solve this little problem, I'll get the thing up and it will NOT look like every other blog with cute mommy's drinking coffee or martinis. Cause I don't fit that profile. Stumble It! JBlog Me
