Facebook timeline, a wordpress layout, and shivers

Have you ever seen a new layout of something you use everyday, like facebook or wordpress page formats, and thought “I wonder if I would like using that style better?” And then the more you look at it the more the thought of trying to use that new look or style gives you shivers and a twitch. (I’m sure it’s not just me, but if it is, just humor me and don’t burst my lil bubble…)

When I first saw facebook’s new timeline look, I hated it. Still do actually, so thankful they left my wall looking normal so I only see the mess that is timeline if I click on my profile, which I avoid doing… Anyway, back to the point. I saw a different wordpress layout today (called “auto focus”), where it just had a collage of random sized pictures, instead of full posts, with dates on each one. I started thinking “Hmm…do I like that? Could I get used to using that?” And the more I looked at it, the more the answer was obvious. “NO” (insert raised eyebrow of uncertainty and fear here with vehement head shaking) I think it is because I like things neat and fairly organized and symmetrical. Facebook timeline and that particular wordpress layout are none of these things, and I think that’s why they bother me. Now, not everything has to be symmetrical or neat, but there are somethings that I can’t make myself like no matter how many other people can use/like them with wild abandon. Can’t. Do. It. Strangely the randomly sized pictures of pinterest don’t bother me in the slightest…..sometimes I think my brain has selective bipolar OCD or something.

About kittyisnotamused

I am an eclectic crafter whose hobbies currently include knitting, crochet, making journals, cooking, and quilting, although I have also been addicted to jewelry making, scrapbooking, sewing, and many others. My passion for creating runs a wide gamut and jumps back and forth from new hobbies to old often. I live with my hubby and our 3 pets: 1 grown puppy with the attention span of a goldfish, and 2 lazy chubby kitties. Kitties who, despite my best efforts to gain their enthusiasm, show no interest in what I'm working on except to lay on whatever it is occasionally. The hubby's reactions are better, which is why he gets many handmade items and the kitties only a few, but his reactions are usually confused smiles and nods with "thats great sweety!" The dog shows the most enthusiasm but mostly that translates into her trying to snot and eat whatever I am showing to her... I suppose thats just life tho :) Thanks for stopping in, feel free to leave a comment!
