A new look

You probably noticed the blog got (yet another) face lift. This is probably the happiest I’ve been with the blog’s appearance, and ironically, I changed it specifically so I could give the template to a fellow blogger who is really frustrated with the template she is using. I never intended to keep it, but I think I like it and it will stay this way a while.

It’s funny, I have made a good chunk of change over the years doing freelance web design, but this template kicked my butt. Maybe I should take a refresher course in xml and such, but it’s only been maybe three years since my last java/html course. It’s amazing how fast such things become dated and near obsolete.

If you have ever stopped by my gallery site you might recognize the faerie in my banner. If you don’t, she is from an oil painting I did about two years ago. (She has of course been modified in photoshop as she appears in the banner) I always meant to do a series of faeries, but got side tracked. I should go back and revisit that idea. Of course I say this now, only seven days before Nano starts, which means there isn’t a chance in the world of me painting much until at least December.

I LOVE the template! This is the first time I've seen it, because I couldn't get the code to load on mine.

I'm gonna try it again, though. Thanks!

Oh, I forgot. I put your blog on my bloglines list. ;-)

Hey Rachel, Thanks! I'm sorry it's not working. Did it show up in the file I sent this time? The code is almost impossible to test aside from sticking it inside my own blog box, but it was working when I copy pasted it from mine into the file I sent you. If you let me know what it's doing, I'll try to figure out what is going wrong.

The new template looks great. It's easier to read than the template you were using the other day.

Thanks Fred.
I think out of all the templates I've used, this is probably the easiest to read. I'm still happy with it, and it's been a full day so that's rare. (usually the second time I look at something I've done I decide it's awful. That's why I'll never get a tattoo...)
