Changes...

Ok, I messed around with the template and widened the main content and also widened the sidebar a bit. Do you guys think it looks ok, or does it make the page seem cluttered? (I changed it back from the feedback I got! Thanks!)

Another thing I'd like to do is add categories, but it seems incredibly complex with blogger.

Anyways, if anyone has suggestions for changes or things I could try out in terms of layout, design, anything really, let me know.

No good. Slammed up against the left side and hard to read! Ack! lol!

Hey,

Maybe it's different in your computer, but on my end it's too wide. I have to scroll to the right to see your sidebar. I tried to mess with my blogger template too but quickly went back...

Thanks for the response guys, I changed it back.

Any other suggestions are welcome though...

I was going to comment that everything looked fine but I just realized that you changed it back. Duh.

By categories do you mean tags? If you do I think the new Beta system has them. I've been thinking of changing my blog to Beta because it's all going to be changed to beta sooner or later anyway, whether people like it or not. But I think first I'm going to test it on one of my other minor blogs.

Black text and a black background works for me. I love a challenge.

I was about to say it looked fine until I saw you changed it back. I played around with the new Beta version of Blogger and found it more difficult to make changes. Just going in and tweaking the code in the old version was much easier; then again you've seen the POS I call a template.

Nicole: I love those duh moments. It frightens me how often it happens to me.

Mariana: Well, I meant like having a categories for all the posts I've done in the sidebar. I changed to Beta, but haven't really made any changes, it's not very practical. I might try something like you say and just mess around with another blog first.

DB: Black on black, great idea! Do you work in the graphic design industry DB????

JM: Yeah, Beta seems to be a greater pain. It's one of the few things that truly makes me angry...

I wonder how long DB sits there and thinks this stuff up. Black on black. lol. I actually visited a website today that had that.

DB Cooper said...

Do you work in the graphic design industry DB????

Nope I'm just in the dark most of the time so black on black seems like a natural fit.

Sebastien said...

Helen: Haha, no way you visited a site with that! DB's mind is a speed demon on crack.

DB: That completely makes sense. You should be in the graphic design industry or interior design, seems like you have a gift for color.

Stick with the clean look - quick and easy to read. I think I need to widen my template - seems a little packed in on both sides.

I like the labesl function on beta, I just wish there was a way to display all of them. Or is that what you mean?

Sebastien said...

I think you're right, clean and simple is usually the best. Yeah, basically I wish I could have a thing in the sidebar that would categorize my labels, like under art, music, politics, etc...
