Working by day as a web developer and programmer, it's somewhat ridiculous that I've been blogging for several months without making any major modifications to the standard Blogspot template I started with. Finally growing weary of seeing dozens of other blogs with the exact same layout, I decided to break out my rusty design skills. A few hours of dabbling with Paint Shop Pro, a little css and plenty of page refreshes, all while soaking in 24 and the Daily Show leads us to the result you see before you. I'm not yet convinced if I am fully sold on the design, but I am glad that I have taken one small step towards establishing a brand image. Please let me know if you like the new layout, or if there are changes or suggestions that you would like to make.
