This is an intervention.

For myself.

I have a problem and I am more than ready to admit it. I am addicted to stalking websites that provide me with free Blogger backgrounds. I then constantly alter my own blog in hopes of satisfying my need for change and renewal.

I am ill and confessing it to you all right now.

I feel guilty and am now calling out to the blogging world to help me. How can I stop this raving addiction?

This beast within me that whispers, "your background is too bland, time to spice it up."

With which I respond, "it looks just fine, someimes simple is best."

"Is that what you're trying to tell your fans? That you're PLAIN?"

"Stop it! Stop it! You know my blog doesn't attract 'fans' only a few "followers.' And no one comments anymore so who even knows how many people even read this random blabber."

"Exactly, little Priscilla. No one's reading because your background is bland and you need something better. Something flashier. Something new. Go to the websites, go surf your day away browsing the polka dots, the stripes, the wide variety of free backgrounds. GO!"

I am powerless to my nagging need for new, and begin to stalk the following websites:

The Cutest Blog on the Block

Aqua Poppy Designs

Delighful Dots

Shabby Blogs

Dotty Dot Dot Backgrounds

Scrappin' Blogs

And where my current layout comes from:

Leelou Blogs

Someone please stop me. Please stop this blogging monster inside me. I need to stop changing my background every other day. I need to be satisfied with what I have. I need help. I need...

...a $5.00 bet that I can keep my blog background the same for 1 month. Who's willing to take me on?

If it makes you feel better I can never see what your blog looks like bc I see it in my rss feed.
So that's one less reader that doesn't even know youre changing backgrounds unless you say something about it.

Ohhhooo! My hubby steps up to the challenge. Let the bet begin!

Simple is best.

I've tried many different ones in the past bit, and I've come to prefer what I'm using right now (white BG, red/black/blue text).

Of course, I don't get many comments anyways, so maybe I'm the only one that likes it (or the topics I write about)...

I will totally take that bet! No changing the background girl, he he he.

I love your blog. I should be better about commenting though, because I really do read it!

A little voice inside your head says, "Get all your blog accessories from Dotty Dot Dot Designs!"

Great blog, keep it up.
