Watch Me Entertain Myself!

Sacha Guitry once said, "You can pretend to be serious, but you can't pretend to be witty." Oh yes, I'm the great pretender.

The Changing Seasons

Noticed the new header? New year, new season. It just seems appropriate that 2012 marks my 12th season of The McVie Show.

No, I have not been blogging for 12 years. If you check out below my header, I started blogging Jan. 20, 2004. Seventeen days from now, my blog will turn eight years old. So I have seventeen days to play around with the new look of my blog (yeah, including the header; I can still change it if I want to). I know, I know, I should just debut everything on Jan. 20, right? Well, I’d like to think of this as the beta stage.

I think even the content should have some changes. Never stop learning, I say. So brace yourself. Change is inevitable.

i love the new header. I wish I know how to place one on my blog.

@ORANGE WIT: Even without Photoshop or Adobe Ekhlavurvah, you can still make your own header. For my header I used:

[1] my iPod Touch - to take a photo of our office elevator
[2] Keynote (or its Microsoft equivalent, Powerpoint) to crop the photo and add text
[3] Preview (or Powerpoint pa rin) to adjust the size of the header to its appropriate size

Yes, you need a bit of know-how on tinkering with your blog's templates, but given Blogger's user-friendly dashboard (compared to its predecessor), you don't need knowledge of HTML to tweak your blog's layout and look. Hey, I'm HTML-illiterate too. =)
