Today, I hosted the Festival of Frugality – the first time I’d hosted a blog carnival. I got to read lots of posts, and then ended up sitting at my computer until 2am last night, putting everything together the way I wanted it. For some reason (probably exhaustion-induced delerium) I didn’t publish the post when I was finished – instead I saved it and went to bed, intending to publish it first thing this morning.
Of course, today was the day when my wordpress setup took a dump. Not two days ago when I wrote about our car, or two days from now when I’ll likely write about something equally important. No, it did it today, when I had a post with 50 article links and a freakin schedule. The only time in the history of the blog that I have to get a post up on a particular day, and nothing’s working.
I tried all the things that I could think of, then I had a little tantrum and asked my husband to look at it (he does all the web design for our business, so my little blog probably isn’t the biggest problem he’s had this week). Anyway, he got everything fixed, but we had to pick a new design for my blog – the old one was fouling up the works. So now I have a simple daisy – my favorite flower – and I love it.
Hope you like the new look!
