Clean Computer Desk = Return of Mojo

As I cleaned my computer desk this evening, ideas for my blog were racing through my head. None of these ideas were winning the race, in fact, I think they were mostly chasing each other round and round in circles.

The gal who's designing my blog has finally sent me a first proof of the new design; with some tweaks and final mapping of my navigation bar and sidebars, I'm hoping the new design is up within the next week or so. Fingers crossed.

Along with the new design, I'm going to be streamlining my blog and removing some elements to keep it clean, simple, and uncluttered.

I've already removed the Playlist music. I've had some complaints that it's preventing my blog from loading, and believe me, I know from my own experience, there's nothing that will make me leave a website quicker than a slow download.

For my music lovers, you can still listen to my music. I've set up a special website - This will take you directly to my music if you want to listen to it! I'll be updating the music list in the next week or so, hopefully adding some new music.

I also want to note that I've heard numerous complaints from our Internet Explorer browser users about blogs loading slowly or not at all. Apparently there are some problems between Blogger and the Internet Explorer browser. Supposedly, Blogger is working on these issues.

In the meantime, I strongly encourage you to download and use the Firefox browser. This browser has been around many years, I've used it for a long time, and I've read other people's rave reviews about this browser. Nary a problem with it. Go to if you want to download it.

That's all for now. Stay tuned, changes are floatin' on the prairie winds... now, if I can just harness those changes for the good of my blog! :)


  1. changes are floatin' on the prairie winds...

    Lovely choice of words. Good luck with the blahs. I think it is the weather or the wind.

  2. Quick break! ;-)
    I finally went to Firefox about a week ago because of all the issues. It's so much better than IE!

  3. I knew your mojo was somewhere close just needed to rope it in!


  4. I keep hearing about Firefox, I will have to check it out!

  5. Glad your mojo's working again. I've been using Firefox for a long time now - much better than IE

  6. I've used Firefox for years!

    So glad your mojo has returned.

  7. Dear Susan!

    I can't wait to see your new design. Thanks so much for removing your (by the way wonderful) playlist, cause it's really made your page so slow and difficult to navigate, now your page is so fast and working perfectly :-)

    I also ordered a new blog design months ago...the designer was a nightmer so untalented and not flexible at all...So I ended up throwing out $170 on the window...But I'm so happy it's over...and the positive side of the story: I was so desperate to have a new design I learnd basic tricks on the Photoshop myself and designing my own page now...Who knows? Maybe I will end up as a wedesigner LOL.

    My dearest Susan I wishing you a wonderful weekend and I definitely will download Firefox, so many people suggesting it :-)Thanks.

    May I ask you something Susan? Next time when you are on my page can you tell me please if it's downloading slow as well? I usually using big pictures in my posts and I really like to know if it's slow or not...
    Thanks for your help and much much love: Evi

  8. ps...sorry for the spelling mistakes LOL.

  9. Thank you for the reminder about Firefox. I had it.. somewhere.. alas, I had to restore my system to an earlier time. And (poof!) FF was gone. I'll download again. My son has been after me to make the complete move to FF. He'll be proud :) Anxiously awaiting your new blog design! Been thinkin' of doin' something new as well! -Tammy

  10. Glad you're getting back into the swing of things. Can't wait to see your new design, I know how exciting that is!

  11. Pretty cool stuff, I saw this site with some useful info on Computer Desks . Hope it helps.
