Lounging Around With Marilyn Monroe

I hope that everybody's week has started off well. I had a good Monday. I spent the day lounging around with Marilyn Monroe. I just hated that I had to go to work later on. We were having such a wonderful time together.

P.S. I've been considering doing a little revamping of my blog . Does anyone here, with a blog on Blogger, use a template other than the ones Blogger has for us? I've seen templates on various websites that you can use for Blogger. I wasn't sure how well they worked on Blogger. I didn't want to mess up my blog. Any suggestions on sites with good templates if I did want to change mine? Also I might want to change up my header? What site did you use to help you with your header? Thanks for any advice at all you can offer on revamping a blog. I appreciate it.

Hi Keith, Your Monday with Marilyn sounds brilliant!!!
I got my blog background from http://www.thecutestblogontheblock.com..... It was so simple as you just copy and paste the code as a gadget in your blog layout. Others I looked at needed me to add the code into the body of my blogs html which I couldnt work out and worried I would lose everything. So definately try the cutest blog site, its totally free. I havnt looked at the designs for a little while but they did have more 'manly' layouts. I seem to remember a checky plaid design that was nice (abit like a Bob Hope golfing jersey LOL!) X

Thanks for the advice. I appreciate it. I was worried that I would do something to screw up my blog. I'm not a tech whiz at all. If I do change it, I wanted something that would be simple to use. I'll have to check it out soon. It doesn't matter if the design is more feminine for this blog because of the subject matter, but I would want something more manly for my other blog. Thanks again. Oh yeah. Do you still have your comments cut off at your blog? I had noticed that you did. Sorry you were having any problems. Take care.

I hope you had a great time with Marilyn. :-)

That is a very nice photo of her. She looks so happy there.

Nice pic, Keith! Always good to see Marilyn getting some exposure on your blog. And it is a nice way to start the day!

Keith said...

Thanks Phoebe. Glad you liked this pic. I thought it was a really good one of her.

Keith said...

Hey J.D. Thanks. I love posting pics of MM. I really liked this one of her. Cheers!

definitely copy and paste the code to your blog into a notepad file and SAVE IT! Then do the fiddling with it but don't save and print it ...only preview it! As far as a header goes...I would say design one in a FREE photo program such as GIMP. That's a good start. If you need help, e-mail me or get me on facebook!

Keith said...

Hey Jay. Thanks. I appreciate the advice. The template thing was what I was most concerned about. I just used one of those that Blogger had up here. I knew some people used others. I was just curious as to what program people used for their headers. I made that one using LunaPic.

Thanks for coming to my space. My blog header I did myself using paint.net. I uploaded the pictures to flickr, so that's where the header looks to.
My blog template I got from here:

May have templates you like.

Keith said...

Hey Shell. Thanks. I appreciate the suggestions. I'll definitely have to check it out. I did make a new header today. I had been using a different one. I still want to look around at different things.

Keith said...

Hey Terence. Sure thing, buddy.

Keith said...

Thanks Scott. Glad you liked this photo.

Hey Keith,

You should do a post about the comparisons between Marilyn Monroe and Paris Hilton. I'm guessing Paris Hilton is not someone that fascinates you, not enough substance but she recently did a MTV documentary where she talks about the hair-head she portrays when in actuality she has a brain, manages her empire and business decisions and was even ivy league bound.

She discusses the similarities between her and Marilyn Monroe, the child like, girley chatter, mannerisms, fashion trends etc. and why she is the most photographed female celeb of today's generation. I think this was interesting to watch. I'm sure you'll feel the same.

Keith said...

Hey Joelyne. Thanks. Glad you like both. I'm doing well. I hope you are too. Cheers!

Keith said...

Hey Kandi. Thanks for the great comments. I actually do want to cover some of the popular girls of today. It would be interesting to compare Marilyn and Paris. Whatever Paris is or is not, she's definitely been doing something right. I didn't get a chance to see that doc. Maybe I'll get a chance to catch it. I did see Paris on the new Bravo show NYC Prep. She was at Fashion Week.

hey Keith-i see you already made a decision on the look of the header. Just wanted to say it looks great!

Keith said...

Hey Mrs. M, Thanks. I'm glad you like it.
