Blogging...kinda like a puzzle...right?



Sooo...blogging day two...still trying to figure out this puzzle...I know there is a way to make it all come together to make a totally cool blog....I totally stalk other blog...I know that it is possible...it can be done...but how?

Let me say this right off the bat...a computer wiz, I am not....and probably never will be.  Blogging is like a some strange language to me.  What the heck is a widget...or gadget?   I want the top of my page to have the picture (logo) in the middle..is that the title...or the topper...or as I like to call it the Toppy Thing..it is a real term, google it....ok don't, cause I totally just made it up.  But Toppy Thing, I understand...blogging not so much!


So I will keep moving around stuff...clicking on buttons...moving little slide thingies...you know the stuff that people do when they have no idea what they are doing. 
Yep, that is me...the lady that pushes every button, expecting a miracle...but no...not happening. 



I have decided that blogging is a little like Autism.  It is a strange...oh so very strange....and no two blogs are alike, just like no two people with Autism are alike.  Heck, if all blogs were alike, I would get a little bored, cause I am a total blog stalker (that doesn't creep you out does it? ).  And people with Autism are all different, I think that is why it is a "spectrum" disorder, because the symptoms vary from person to person.

Take my son Collin, blue is is favorite color, followed by green..in that order every time.  And he likes "normal" blue, not light blue, or dark blue,  it must be royal blue...nothing else will do.  Same with the other colors...all normal colors...shades freak him out.



  Now, I have had the honor of getting to know a sweet lady, by the name of Caron, of Bubbles Bath Boutique (find her here and here ...really go now...I will wait...she has the most amazing bath and body products...She sent me a honycomb soap...AMAZING..bye bye Oil of O*** shower gel) she has a daughter named Carlee, who is on the spectrum also.....Now Carlee...she likes the bright, neon colors...bright blues, pinks, greens, and purples.  That is just who she is and what she likes...shades don't freak her out.


Both primary colored cookies and neon cookies are great..cute..but different...so different blogs are different....and every person with Autism is different...but we still like them all...right?..right!...good!


Soo...to bring it all together, here is a little summary.....Blogs are confusing to me....I am one of those random button clicking persons....All blogs are different.....People with Autism are all different.

If you can hang with me a little bit..I promise I will get the hang of this.  Now each time you come back, things might look a little different, but you don't mind do you?

Here are a few more puzzle piece cookies that I did...I thought I might like them..I sure do...cause they are puzzle pieces...and, well, I have come to love puzzle pieces!

  4. Ok, so you know what's really funny? I saw your blog and how pretty and loved the colors and the design and said to myself, "I wonder if she would like the logo centered at the top". I thought of telling you how and then I thought "how rude!" that your plan was probably to have it at the left all along. Then I read your post and giggled :-) So here's how I centered my logo. I did a search on Google on how to center your header and found this great tutorial that made it super easy. It will look like they are writing in another language, but just follow step by step and I promise it's easy. Honest: http://makincuteblogs.com/2011/02/how-to-center-your-header-in-blogger/ Your blog looks great and I'm so excited to have you as a blogging buddy :-) and your cookies rock!
