Blogspot was upgrading the layout template and gave me a scare. I thought my template with all the widgets and links were gone. Phew... I wouldn't want to add all those back again.
Option 1: Keeping it pink in view of the pinkiness of pigs. Lol
Option 2: Blue skies image - my first blog was on clouds and skies.
Option 3: The Wooden Fences theme. Try to take some parts of it to incorporate into the Minima Template.
Will see how it goes. Next need to find out how to edit the title for my entries. So please bear with me while I experiment a little more on the background.
