Isn't it funny how you sometimes end up right back where you began? I often do this with my outfit each morning (my beau can attest to the pile of options that ends up on our bed as I stumble out the door)... starting with one look, trying on a dozen others, only to end up wearing the first thing I picked out. And now I've done it with my blog.
This current format is the one I used three years ago when I first began blogging as a way for my family in other states to keep up with my crazy New York life. The minor differences: the background was black instead of white and the columns were switched (blog on the left, other stuff on the right). And then, I got antsy. I got bored. I wanted to change it up. It started with the picture I had at the top near the title - I changed that from a pair of hands, to an OM symbol, to a pregnant tummy. I changed the color of the links and the headers. I changed the order of the side bars. And then I changed the template. I went from two columns to three columns - whoa! It was wild!
And now, after a few days of bouncing back and forth between several different looks, trying them on like a dozen different outfits... only to end up back where I began - in the same black top & jeans (my "go to" classic style). It's comfortable. It suits me. It makes me feel like I know where I am, what I'm doing, where I want to go. And I like it.
