Ta-da! The blog has a new look!
I turned yesterday's various weekend mishaps around by working on the blog in the early evening. It had started to feel too cluttered, juvenile, and I was finding myself very envious of simpler blog layouts with pretty typography. Care of some HTML sleuthing hours yesterday and a lot of time adjusting pixel widths in Photoshop (and downloading the awesome free font CAC Champagne), I feel pretty confident with what it has turned into. I am still too much of an HTML baby to move beyond editing the delivered two-column themes for Blogger, but I am feeling more confident with branding! I'm hopeful that the blog, now in it's terrible two's, will help me not only with my fashion sense but my blog design skills.
If you're looking for an inexpensive e-course to help teach you blog design and branding, please visit A Beautiful Mess's course Blog Design Love. I know I've discussed its amazing merits before, but I can't say enough about how much it's helped me rethink my own blog.
