Still doing great! My only suggestion is to remove the custom image as background(or whatever theme...) as it really increases load time. From someone who played with blogger for years, the best thing you can do is simple, elegant themes with minimal widgets. All the complicated stuff does is slow down your site.

The other cool thing you can do is upgrade it to a custom domain name for 10 bucks and then have a dedicated address like plantedfishbowl.com or something cool like that!

If you need any tips with blogger, let me know. I can manipulate most themes and widgets.

Thanks guys!

The domain name is for the future when I get alot of constant hits. Right now I average about 25 hits a day, not including me. I have joined Aquaria Centeral to hopefully get the blog out there and to get some more info. Does the backround really take along time to load? I hadn't thought of that being a proablem. I guess I'll go back to the old theme. Thanks for the advice!
Jake

You should get the domain sooner, rather than later... The trick is if you change it later, people have to learn a new address. It is 10 bucks a year... so not much money. 25 hits a day is pretty good for being this new.

Hey Jake I got your box in the mail. I sent a baby panda bamboo already rooted in a planter. I imagine that you'll see it tomorrow or Tuesday.



I have some of this going in a setup just like yours and it's doing great. I would try to position it so that it is out of the shade of those peace lilies.

Hey you bet. Just make sure to review the instructions about how to use the magnetic planter. The magnets are super strong!

Haha. I had to take a double take. At first I thought it was pearling.
