Custom domain publishing dilemma

February 3, 2007 at 1:25 am | Posted in All, Blogging, Life et al, Pensiveness/Rants, The Geek Wannabe in Me | 5 Comments

I have given up on trying to publish this blog on my domain name chocscorner.com using blogger’s custom domain facility. I can not get it to work. I have followed Google’s set-up instructions as well as GoDaddy’s, the registrar where I purchased the domain name but I still can not resolve the problems. I’m not sure what I’m doing wrong. GoDaddy’s customer service is of no help at all.Meantime, I’ll continue blogging and deal with the problem later. Kaysa mainis lang ako.

New Look

For a few days now, I have been working on a complete revamp of this site . I have finished most of it and I’m quite happy with the results. I wanted a chocolatey look to it but reading the texts in a very dark background strains my eyes so I adjusted the color a bit. The result is this new look. It’s more brown-orange than chocolate brown. The original template was green in different hues. I kinda got bored of it, thus the change.

I’m no computer geek so it was not an easy task but thankfully I have managed to do it. It took a lot of patience as I was doing it “trial and error” style.

Hopefully, this would motivate me to write more often.

There are bits that I’m not very satisfied still, like the google ads. I wanted to put it on the side or maybe at the bottom of every entry but it throws away the side columns to the bottom of the page when I do that. Haay, hirap magpakadalubhasa . But anyway, I’ll leave this as it is for the moment and take the challenge of improving more later. It’s something I can look forward into developing my computer skills.
