It only took a few days of hunting around – and countless hours testing templates .. but I managed to finally narrow it down to this one.
In keeping with my New Year Resolutions – this is a first step towards creating a more customized design for my blog. It’s not 100% me .. In fact I don’t even know how many % me this template is .. however it did catch my eye and I have settled on on it (trust me I tried & tested over 20 designs) – so there must be a fair amount of me in the design.
This is technically the third blog makeover (if I disregard the standard template when I first started blogging); and all 3 have been quite different from each other. I’d love to get your thoughts and feedback on the current and previous design.
Is there anything I can change .. or do you know anyone who could help me with a blog makeover without damaging my pockets too much ? I’m already digging deep for my birthday party – but more on that later.
I still need to tweak it a bit … and any advice would be great ! There are 3 things I’d like to do :
- Change the font for the header text to Segoe Print – but every time I try to change the existing font family – nothing happens =( Which font family does it belong to ? Any ideas ?
- Increase the overall size of the borders of the template so that the entire blog is a bit broader in width
- Increase the borders for the 2 columns on the right (currently one of my awards is getting cut off *sniff*sniff)
So if anyone out there reading this in blogosphere – and knows some secret HTML CSS codes that can solve my 3 issues - pleeeeeeeeeeease do !
Until then – hope you enjoy the new layout and design .. and it doesn’t traumatize your eyes so much so that you would not come back !!! If you really really really really really hate it – then let me know and I’ll try to find something more pleasing on the eye ;)
p.s I found the above image over at MyBlogMakeover who has some easy tutorials on how to customize designs into your blog background; and since it IS Monday .. the image was perfect to add to the post :)
