Blog Troubles + A New Look

Woot woot! Happy FRIDAY to us all!!

This week has been a long one. Last week I only had to go to school three days instead of five due to the extended weekend holiday. So it was difficult getting back into the swing of things.

I plan to visit The Haunt House soon. I have a family friend who has worked there for a while. These guys are no joke... they provide some VERY scary entertainment!  

I'm looking forward to the rest of October. Lots of fun events are happening... homecoming is coming up, and so is my birthday on the 31st (yep, my birthday is Halloween!) I am still trying to decide what I want to be. All I know for sure is that I am SUPER EXCITED to go to as many haunted houses as possible! They are one of my favorite things to do all year. I think I may even like them more that opening Christmas presents (well, okay. Maybe they're a close second.)

Anyways... lately I have been getting some feedback from readers that they are unable to see a comment that they post on the blog, or are simply not able to post one all together. I also have been having issues with my Blogger format in general... gadgets not working, icons and pages not even showing up!

I've been debating whether or not to move Clean Eating Teen from Blogger and to Wordpress, which I know would have more options for me and the blog. You might have noticed me posting on Twitter and Facebook about my frustrations! However, after fiddling with it for a few days with Wordpress and trying to transfer over by the easiest means possible, I realized that I simply could not figure it out on my own.

I am not the most technology-savvy person by any means. There was no way I was going to risk messing up what content I had already produced here, so I decided to make the best of what I was allowed to do with Blogger.

One of my favorite bloggers, Heather from The Soulful Spoon, advised me to try and change my template. Some templates here are formatted for more of a journal entry rather than an actual blog... I am pretty sure that is what my problem was, because as you can (hopefully) now see, the problems I was having before are gone!



I had some free time today during classes so I used it to edit Clean Eating Teen. By no means is it perfect, and I hope to add some more pages and icons soon, but I am satisfied (especially from where it was!)

So how does everyone like the new look on the blog? Is it working correctly, and can you navigate more easily?

Also... what does everyone plan to dress up as for Halloween?! ;)

I actually wanted to comment on your blog a coupe of times but I couldn't! I am glad that I can now! I actually had Blog Genie transfer my blog to wordpress.org and it was a DREAM! I didn't lose a wink of sleep, ha ha! Maybe ask for it for Xmas? It's worth it for sure.

Oh and don't hate me but... I HATE Halloween, lol!

I will definitely have to look into that. Blogger is working better now that I've made adjustments, but Wordpress just seems so much easier!
I'm happy you can comment now too! It's wonderful to know that people are actually reading my posts... speaking of which, I checked out your blog and think it is great! :)
Lol and no hate ;)
