Blog Make-Over

I have been playing around with the Blogger template & my HTML guide. I'm not sure how I feel about the results.

I don't like the light blue with the bright yellow on black. It doesn't make much of an impression.

Don't shoot me!!


Kim said...

Hmmm. I like it -- love the BRIGHT- but yellow and blue together always makes me think "fever" for some reason, quite seriously. I think I recall staring a book with a yellow and blue cover once when sick as a kid.

Would you like me to send you my Sparkly Anti-Fuckery Unicorn code?

Or ... sparkly GUN for J!
In red?

(The word verification says "lesbsxyy." Sexy Lesbian?)

I like it, but I'm a simpleton. Maybe you should replace the title block with an image.

Jeanz said...

White text on a black background is not very work-friendly, but the blue-n-yellow is even more obvious. Which is not to say that I'd stop reading during working hours, of course. And it is, well, pretty, but I'm not sure you want to hear that.

What is this? "This Old Blog"? "Extreme Blog Makeover"? "I'm Drinking Some Tab and/or Mamossas and Wondering How I Should Spruce up My Blog"????

Actually I like it.

ummm, no.

DC Liar said...

I'm going to take another whack at it later tonight.
I think I'm going to switch out the yellows with grays and/or blue/grays.

You all have until 5PM to get in your suggestions (which will be promptly ignored).

I think I'm going to design a hand-drawn header sometime next week.

DC Liar said...

Fuck it. I went ahead and toned it down.
Feel free to tell me that now you can't find the links.
To see what my template looked like before I started fuckin' with it, check out Tom O's blog:

Geez! I thought I was a girly man, but you just flitted around the room and showed us all where you're going to put the antique credenza.

Kim said...

OD, I am laughing at loud at that:)
Funny, funny!

TheStrangeblue said...

uh... I know I'm a little late... but I like the blue.... and if I may offer unsollicited advice, 1) never let chicks talk you into a light background--they always try to do this and it's really just part of their long-term plan to annihilate our testicles, and 2) pictures pictures pictures pictures pictures. Elisenator has the idea. If you're short on pictures, I have a whole bunch of my son's spelling bee last week. Hey, thanks for updating my link.

Not sure if this works, but I made a simple title block for you with a free font called "earthquake". Here it is: Image
