101 Things v1 - 2006 to 2008,  Blogging About Blogging

The Unveiling

[NOTE - 18 Oct 2023: When republishing these after moving to WordPress and my own domain, and over 15 year after the fact, I have no idea what my blog looked like after this redesign! I have many of the others documented, but not this one. It has been lost to history]

Like the new template? Isn’t it spiffy? I know, I know, not drastically different that my old one, but it wasn’t intended to be. With the exception of the text parameters for the posts themselves (which I liked, so I didn’t see any need to reinvent the wheel), I coded the CSS myself, by hand (using the tutorial at CSS From the Ground Up). I also designed the graphics for the sidebars titles and the “Erin Expounds” title. Not that they were overly complicated (nice star font, background the same as what is on the blog), but still, I’m so proud of myself!

Please let me know if it works okay in your browser and on your monitor. If it looks wonky or if the columns overlap, please let me know what browser you are using and what your monitor resolution is, and I’ll see what I can do. It should work fine at 1024×768 or higher. 800×600 will be cutting it close, I think. I also tested it in Windows IE and Firefox.

So, three things off my 101 list!! Learn some CSS, revamp my blog, and try Firefox. Not bad for less than a week. 🙂

Currently feeling: like dancing
