In the spirit of Spring Cleaning and all, I've decided to give my blog a little update. I've been considering it for a while, since I've had the same Standard Blogger Template background for about three years now, but I hadn't really done anything about it (other than tell a reader that she was more than welcome to design something for me if she wanted to). Honestly, I forget about blog design because I read most blogs through Google Reader and thus don't see any of their formatting or fancy page designs anyway (unless I click through to comment or something)...so I tend to not give any thought to my design at all.
However, Blogger unleashed a new beast of blog template design goodness today. Oh yes, the Blogger Template Designer is a new halfway point between Totally Standard Template and Totally Customized Amazingness. I played around a little and found a new Pretty Standard But Kind of Customized Template for this here little bloggy thing...I'm at a point where I don't have the know-how to design something from scratch, so it's nice to be able to just choose some options and play around with new designs. The Designer is pretty intuitive, and there are a bunch of options to choose from, so if you're like me and want a new design with not much skill or work involved, check it out.
Let me know what you think - I'm not totally happy with this (it's a little too dark and busy I think), and I actually have ideas for things I'd like my blog to be (namely cleaner), or how I'd like it to look anyway...but I figured this was a good little change for now. Expect many redesigns in the upcoming month or so (probably). And if anybody out there wants to redesign my blog for me (you know, because you have copious free time and web skillz), let me know! I'll let you know what I'm thinking of, and you can let me know if I'm nuts. If a few people are seriously interested (ha, I'm doubting this for sure), I'll have a contest or something. Maybe even with prizes. (parenthesis)
