So after a year or so since I last updated the design of my website, I decided it was getting a bit crufty and spent the evening playing around with another CSS design. After seeing Rui and other blogs based on Kubrick I snagged that as a base. It's a great template I think, but I don't like that my weblog now looks like just another Blogger blog, though. I like that the site is now a little nicer looking, but I wish it had a bit more of a home-brew feel as well.
The jury is *way* out on this design. I especially think the CSS is pretty crufty, and I don't like the sizes of the fonts, and my header graphic isn't correct yet, and there's no text-title, etc. So expect some tweaking. The nice thing is that I only had to change two files and the CSS sheet. Not much pain, really.
One thing that I definitely don't like? My picture's not on the template any more. Part is just me playing with the design, but the other part of that is because the picture I've been using for years now is old and people I meet now say I don't look anything like it. So I've got to update it and I don't have a decent recent picture. I really believe in making sure your photo is on your blog though - it's all part of the personal brand, which blogs are all about. If you're going to spend all this time writing your thoughts online, you might as well make sure that these ideas have your distinctive mark on it. A picture is the best way to do that in my opinion.
Stay tuned. Comments welcome...
