Template Ranting!

Guess what i have been doing all day!

Fooling around with new templates!!

Since i saw pammy's new template, i had been dying to get one like hers and was i happy when i opened my blog this morning to see that she had sent me a link where i could get so many new, lovely templates.

I did find lots of templates and it was really difficult trying make a pick out of the hundred and one beautiful templates. Finally i settled for one, uploaded and saved it. I was very excited and couldnt wait to just view my new blog template.

(view blog), I clicked.

loading................. page is coming up(rubbing my hands with glee with a wide smile on my face)

What The hell?!?!

Yea, the new template was there alright but where are all my links?? My blogroll? My pictures?? My Cbox???
They were all gone!

Kia Kia,i went to customize. I needed to add my widgets back to the template.

Oya now, where is Edit layout? Why is this thing telling me to upgrade template?? I thought i just did.

Ok,let me click, maybe there is something even better out there.


Haba!! Which kain nonsense be dis na?! It has taken me to the same old templates i was running from initially.

Ok. So all the nice templates i saw are outdated. They were actually for the old blogger, which was why they didnt have the 'Edit layout ' feature where you can add links and pictures.

Oh well! What's a girl gotta do! I just have to stick with my reliable'Black dots'(thats what i call my template) at least until you teach me how to do it properly, pammy.

I so want a change of Template!
Something like what pammy's got!!

Am i sounding like a spoilt child??
I hope not.

Meanwhile here are some love quotes i wanted to share.

"Love is friendship set on fire."
Jeremy Taylor

"Love doesn't make the world go 'round. Love is what makes the ride worthwhile."
Franklin P. Jones

"Love has no age, no limit; and no death."
John Galsworthy

"Loved people are loving people."
Katharine Hepburn

"A heart can no more be forced to love than a stomach can be forced to digest food by persuasion."
Alfred Nobel

"Love is of all passions the strongest, for it attacks simultaneously the head, the heart and the senses."

"I believe that every single event in life happens in an opportunity to choose love over fear."
Oprah Winfrey

"If we want a love message to be heard, it has got to be sent out. To keep a lamp burning, we have to keep putting oil in it."
Mother Teresa

"Birds do it, bees do it, even educated fleas do it. Let's do it, let's fall in love."
Cole Porter

"All love shifts and changes. I don't know if you can be wholeheartedly in love all the time. "
Julie Andrews

"Sometimes we make love with our eyes. Sometimes we make love with our hands. Sometimes we make love with our bodies. Always we make love with our hearts."

"When you're in love you never really know whether your elation comes from the qualities of the one you love, or if it attributes them to her; whether the light which surrounds her like a halo comes from you, from her, or from the meeting of your sparks."
Natalie Clifford Barney

"One is very crazy when in love."
Sigmund Freud

"When love is not madness, it is not love."
Pedro Calderon de la Barca

"Almost everybody's happy to be a fool for love."
Jack Nicholson

"Love takes up where knowledge leaves off."
Saint Thomas Aquinas

"Who would give a law to lovers? Love is unto itself a higher law."

"Love is the immortal flow of energy that nourishes, extends and preserves. Its eternal goal is life."
Smiley Blanton

"Love does not begin and end the way we seem to think it does. Love is a battle, love is a war; love is a growing up."
James A. Baldwin

"The best proof of love is trust."
Dr. Joyce Brothers

"Love is like quicksilver in the hand. Leave the fingers open and it stays. Clutch is, and it darts away."
Dorothy Parker

"A woman has got to love a bad man once or twice in her life to be thankful for a good one."
Mae West

"The way to love anything is to realize that it may be lost."
Gilbert K. Chesterton

"Nothing takes the taste out of peanut butter quite like unrequited love."
Charles Schulz

"Friendship often ends in love; but love in friendship - never."
Charles Caleb Colton

"Love is the word used to label the sexual excitement of the young, the habituation of the middle-aged, and the mutual dependence of the old."
John Ciardi

"Say what you will, 'tis better to be left than never to have been loved."
William Congreve.

I'll like to know-
1. Are you in love?
2. If yes, how does it make you feel?

Phantomwriter said...

Anonymous said...

Obi said...

Love those quotes...
About those questions...
i. YES...I AM in love..
ii. Makes me want to be the best person I can, to be worthy of conquering the world and laying it at her feet...ok, ok..enough BS..back to your regular scheduled programming..!!!

princesa said...

@pink-satin,no worry babe. love will find you soon.

@Obi, Hmmm.....
U sounded really sincere back there.
Lucky babe!

Manda said...

mmmh, wat is happening here? first of all, gurl i am BURNT! they just deactivated our yahoo messenger and dat means no more chatting @ work! i will cry ooo! Abeg u get MSN or anyother wey i fit chat wit u thru? i dey vex o!

to ur ques, i am in love.

But the feelings could get really scary cos it gets to a point where u cant control ur feelings and dat makes u vulnerable. my biggest fear is HEARTBREAK and i pray i never encounter that!

Wetin u and Obi dey talk about sef? Make una come console me o! i dey go write blog too.

Friend of God said...

referring to the quote:
Birds do it? bees do it?

No o...those animals js want to reproduce and wouldnt know what love means.

to answer the question...I am in love and i think its a real beautiful thing...for me its an opportunity to really really creatively and thotfully treat my girl as well as possible...its about hw much i could make her happy beyond her wildest dreams...and for that opportunity i am truly grateful to God...did i mention? To be loved back is even better.

And erm...abeg bring back the pictures lol

Olamild said...

first of all, i want to say thank u 4 stopping by my blog.. Of all the quotes you had, this is my favorite...."Birds do it, bees do it, even educated fleas do it. Let's do it, let's fall in love."
Cole Porter

To some, Love is a disease that cannot be cured by any doctor except the lovers. To me, Love is wanting more for someone other than you. TO answer your question I cud say Yes i'm in love... it's a wonderful feeling. It only feels good when u fall 4 the right one at the right time.

Sparkle said...

I don update too

pamelastitch said...


Princess, you will loose links. You have to manually put them in.

If i were you, i will keep all the codes of everything important to me on notepad.

click customize
then template
then edit html
clean off all the stuff that they have over there
then save template changes (should be blank)
Then put the new codes over there...
You should have a raw template with only the blogs that you have in place.

Now...depending on the template that you have chosen - it should have different headings.. for example where you see link 1,link 2
look for the place within the code that says href and just put your stuff there, setting it up the way that they set their up. Alternatively..You could write up the links the way you want it using gmail documents..then just copy the codes.
If the template you have has images, look amongst the codes for a line that says image src....

I hope that helps....
if not..holla...


PS: You might loose somethings..i am still recovering some of mine...

Love makes us vulnerable,It could lead to lifelong happiness or sadness. Its a chance one has to take.

princesa said...

Copido said...

Sometimes it's so surreal, it leaves me speechless.
It makes me feel accepted for who I am despite all my flaws and sometimes it makes me so scared!
Love makes me feel like I'm the happiest person in the world.
I'm floating on top of the world, the feeling is awesome and can't be put in words.
I wish you could come into my heart to help me put the feeling into words cos I can't....

princesa said...

@copido, babes i know you are in LOVE! Am happy you have found love, i wish to get to that point too.
