New Blog Design

Probably 99% of you never look at my blog directly but read my posts through your RSS aggregator of choice. I don't blame you--I do the same, and certainly my little Blogger blog design isn't worth writing home about. After what shall be known as the my blog fiasco of 2008, I decided to tinker with Blogger templates a bit and just put together this new look. Go ahead, look now. I'll wait. Seriously, if you have any comments I'd appreciate them (other than the obvious "get with the program and design your own template"). Maybe one of these days...

Looks fine to me. I don't know that I would spend a lot of time designing your own template unless you've got something in mind that the canned templates don't allow.

I do find it slightly disconcerting that the background color on the Uncommon Commons header image is the same as the side panels of the blog, but with a gap of white space around it. It feels a bit like the image was intended to span that entire white space, but was sized incorrectly. Not a big deal, though. Just thought I'd mention it.

Hey Alex, thanks for taking a look. Yeah, I probably shouldn't obsess over this too much. After all, so few people ever look directly at a blog. As for the white space, it was *supposed* to look like that, but I may tweak it a bit. Thanks!

While I most likely do not have the fine eye as does Alex, have to say I love your blog's look! I especially love the banner image you created! Did you have to tweak it all through anything like photoshop? The colors and resolution are great!

Aw, thanks, Krista! I took that picture myself--had to balance the camera on a table to minimize the "shaky blurries" that all our Hub photos seem to have. For the most part it's not too touched up, though I did have Jason help with that.
