For a while, I've not liked my blog.
The layout of my blog, I mean. The actual blog is something I've enjoyed quite a bit.
But the layout... ugh.
Boring. Dull. Not what I wanted, but I dealt with it. I tried to do the best with what was offered up for free by blogger, and searches for other blog templates and designs and the like yielded little, so with blogger I stuck.
Thankfully, some bloggers had similar complaints and actually expressed them to Blogger. So Blogger listened, and now there is a way to change things around to better fit what I want.
You may have noticed the new look. Now, it's not going to stay this way forever. In fact, I'm a very restless person in general, so you probably will see this change quite a few times. For starters, the background is something offered up and is the only running-related background available so if I see it come up as other blogger backgrounds, I know I will get bored with it for me and will want to change it.
And I did like the headers I would make, with the pictures and things. It was a bit more personal that way. But for now, this is what the blog will look like. I may move some things around here and there but I like this.
The main thing I wanted was to have three columns, not just two. I had so much stuff on the right that you had to scroll down and down and down and down and down to get to some of it, so it was of course just buried. Now I can move some things around and play with it a bit, and there is less dead and wasted space.
Let me know what you think of the new look. And if you're bored with your blog, go to http://draft.blogger.com/home and poke around. It's apparently an updated version of dashboard, mostly with some subtle changes.
