On the new look

Posted on | December 9, 2007 | No Comments

I’ve been itching to break out of the Blogger template form for some time. I’ve toyed with a few downloaded free templates but never had the time to play around with them to get it right.
I did this past week. I downloaded a fine template from Gecko and Fly and set about to customize it. As with most things, it wasn’t an easy process. I had to start a Photobucket account so I could upload a stylized picture as the background. I couldn’t find our copy of Photoshop Elements, so I initially used a lousy Word photo editor to get the header in there. I went to my favorite font site, Dafont.com to download the “Death Font” for Greeley’s Ghost. Tonight I found the Elements software so I could better stylize the headline.
I spent hours earlier this week trying to get things to look right because they didn’t initially, as Christian Fahlen was quick to point out. Hey, I was anxious to launch, what can I say? So I leaned on my old friend Kerri Hicks who seems to know a lot about a lot and she helped fix the code from 3,000 miles away. I have work to do still, but it’s a start.
Some day (Open social or otherwise), we’re all going to be able to drag and drop elements into an environment and customize our pages, whether they’re blog-centric, social-networking centric or otherwise. Until then, we still have to dick around with code, but it’s a lot easier than it used to be.

    Font size makes all the difference in the world, said the squinting old curmudgeon.

    Nice new design Brian. I’m afraid you have too much time on your hands though. (Mike Spataro)
