New Design Day!

So....what do you think?

I'm not sure I'm wild about the red, but I couldn't really match the blues or greens and the white looked odd so here you have it.

I won't pretend that this didn't happen at 1:24 am when I was buffering the latest episode of House. I also won't pretend that this isn't the second successful use of Illustrator I have enjoyed.

If anyone has layout/element/design suggestions, do share. I considered making a poll about whether I should include a poll, but...well, it just got a little too cyclical.

You do realize that you can change the blog template, and they have a red and gray one in the exact same format as this one.

But how grim is that?

Well, you did say you like horror stories. :)

Brighten the red and center the text. Those are my thoughts. I'm glad I'm not the only one who thinks its time for an update with the seasons. Or eschews those horrible "cutest blog on the block" backgrounds.

I like the painting but the red, pardon my Belgium, is no good. The title of the blog should be white in a small modern font (helvetica?) in a corner.

However, I'm not an expert in blog design. Besides, legally, as the owner of the blog you can do want ever you like with the template.
