Hold me, I’m scared.

So, this blog is in pretty desperate need of a redesign. I’ve had this awesome template for seven years. SEVEN YEARS YOU GUYS. Do you know how I know that? Because Vicki finished it right before Sam was born. Do you know what THAT means? SAM IS TURNING SEVEN THIS MONTH.


So anyway, I want a tidier, simpler template. I would LOVE to pay somebody to design one for me but that’s just out of the question, so I’m looking at free WordPress themes and wondering if I can figure out how to customize one of them.



I’m thinking of maybe using Spartan. If I can even remember how to FTP shit. Oh man.

I am over my head already.


Anyway. Ahem. Any thoughts? Suggestions (for themes or ways to keep from panicking)?

    If you’re using the most recent version of WordPress, you shouldn’t need to deal with FTP, unless you want to use a theme that isn’t in the WP directory. If you go into your dashboard, then go to Appearance–>Themes, you should see tab called “Install Themes.” Plug the name of one you want into the search box, hit install, and you’re good to go. If you want to try it out first, there’s a plugin called “Theme Test Drive” that’ll let you do that.

    Huh. This is a good indicator of how behind I am.

    Also it turns out I am NOT using the most recent version of WordPress. Oops.
