Someone very wise once said that “Rome wasn’t built in a day”. Indeed. As I’ve come to find out this past week, blogs weren’t built in a day either. Regular, sharp-eyed visitors to this blog probably have noticed that “Oneika the Traveller” has been going through a number of cosmetic changes, some quite good… and some absolutely terrible. I fess up: tired of the tired look of my old blog, I over-excitedly, naively, over-enthusiastically decided that it was time for a cosmetic overhaul.

Let’s get things straight: I am regrettably, embarrassingly, and enduringly tech-stupid. I couldn’t write an HTML code to save my life. Talk of servers and webhosts confuse me, terms like plugins and sliders elicit only a blank stare.
Despite my love for words, photo snapping, and story presenting, I am a complete disaster when it comes to maintaining the technical aspects of this blog.
This is bad when you then attempt to re-design your blog. This is very, very bad.
I somehow thought I would be able to whip up a new design in a moment’s breath. How wrong I was. My lack of tech prowess is working against me. While I am lucky to have some expert help, things will be looking a tad ”wonky” around here for the next little while.
So in the meantime, I apologize for the uninteresting header, broken links, and unfinished sidebars; I apologize for the dearth of posts as I struggle to wrangle widgets and not words.
I know that it is the content and photos, rather than the look/layout/font of the blog that counts. But I still would like the blog to look pretty… Anyway, please bear with me and stay tuned!
Are any of you guys tech-stupid like me, or are you whizzes at HTML? Have you ever done a blog redesign? What was the most difficult part?
