I did say I love challenges
I read the review of my blog by Bad Example and decided to take up the challenge to change my blog color scheme. First I tried to add a different color to my main panel, then one thing led to another, and I even went back to basics by starting out with a totally new template and re-designed it, transferring the bulk of the sidebar (left & right) over. Main re-designing was the adding of the left bar. This time around, there was less screw up of the margins and such, but who knows? I haven't yet tested it on my other computers which do not have Firefox (shudder! and yawn! I will do it another day!)
See, I am getting good at re-designing template, even though I don't have much of a clue what I am doing. Ok, I do know how to read "Help files" and use the tried-and-true change-one-thing-at-a-time-and-see-the-damage-you'd-done method of trial-and-error changing of a template.
So, after a couple hours of half watching Braveheart on TV (Mel Gibson, apart from dishing out good acting, also looked like a geeky high school boy in a bad costume... anyway, as always, I digress...)and half working on the house...er blogkeeping, viola! here's my new look!
Please let me know what you think -- is this design better than the all blue affair?
P.S. Looks like I am being thrashed at the King of the Blogs tournament, so if you care, please help me boost my score. You can help by leaving a trackback at this post and voting here as well!
UPDATE: I was thrashed in the King of the Blogs tournament! Oh, well. At least I learned something, and I finished re-modelling my blog. Guess I'll take a break now!
