    Does My Blog Look WONKY???

    I ask because I just saw a snap shot of it at and this is what it looked like.
    It's all off center and the sidebar is so messed up that you can't even read it.

    Naturally, I have set my blog up according to how I see it; with a 17" monitor, 1280 by 1024 resolution, and 32bits (color quality). And the only time it looks this way to me is when I don't have the window fully enlarged. I have no idea why some of the background stays in place and some of it shifts. Arrrrg.

    But if it normally looks WONKY to everyone else, I guess I need to change it. Because this really sucks. I would really appreciate knowing what you see when you come to visit.


    Until Next time...Happy Needling!!!

    I can read it fine and it looks normal to me.

    Hi Gerry, First of all, I'm so sorry to have misspelled your name yesterday...realized it as I pushed the 'post" button and couldn't get it back to fix it. I don't think your blog looks wonky really, but some of the printing seems to lap over onto the pink part, starting with the multi-colored ribbon...a margin maybe, or perhaps something built in that you can't change. It's hard to read but you can. The extra widgets show up just fine and kind of look like they're tacked onto the ribbon, a neat effect. It looks the same on my computer enlarged or not. Maybe a darker color of print would work? Technology can make you crazy, that's for sure! All of a sudden, I can no longer post on some Type Pad blogs....weird. Good luck fixing things! I've given up on that issue.

    Hey Carol and Judy, thanks for chiming in. I played around with it for awhile then just decided to play it safe and go with a solid background until I can get to the bottom of it.

    It did not look wonky. And I loved the background that you had. This one is all to the left with a wide margin on the right hand side.

    I can see everything just fine. When you mention "centering", I can see about 1/2" pink on the left and about 2-1/2" on the right.
    Looks good though.

    Hi Tina,
    I have added you to my blogroll on Bloglines and look forward to visiting. Thanks for letting me know about my blog appearance. I used a free, on-line background and maybe it just wasn’t quite right. I’ll keep tweaking with it. LOL.

    BTW, congrats on your win over at Mind Wide Open. I thought your box was just adorable. Take care.

    Thanks Mindy. I really liked the polka dots, too. If I can figure out a fix for it, I'll put it back up.

    Hi Kathy,
    Thanks for the comment. I really didn’t know that different monitors would show things so much differently. DUH!!!!!!!!!!

    I put you on my blogroll and I’ll come and visit you, too.

    Thanks, Anne. I was about to pull my hair out trying to tweak it. I finally figured it out, though.
