Shall Me Bloggy Be Dotty?

Posted October 1st, 2005 by Mike Cherim

I redid my Online Portfolio! I’m diggin’ the Spartan look of it. It makes the message stand out. I’m getting good feedback on it from others so far so that’s a good thing. Now I’m considering applying the same theme to this blog — to make it part of the family moreso, so to speak.

I’m not sure I can match it exactly, with the :hover/:focus on the banner, and the navigation lists at all that jazz. I’m not really crazy about the CSS on this blog. I even had to apply a hack to the image replacement technique to force it to work correctly in Internet Explorer. I didn’t have to do that for the image replacement on my new portfolio site. So… I’m expecting it’ll give me a little grief. But, hey, no pain, no gain. Right? I guess I can manage it. To get it really close, anyway. So it’s back to the should I? part of the equation.

I do like the look of the blog as it is. But the colors are starting to get old in a way. I’m torn. I’m leaning towards a green-dotty transformation of me bloggy but still swaying a bit… what do you think, dear reader? Shall Me Bloggy be Dotty? Or shall it not?

    Oh, nice, I love the new design. Yes, it seems that the current trend in design is more sparse designs, making use of whitespace. Hey whatever floats your boat man. It’s your choice I think, this is your own site, your personal nook on the web.

    Oh, if you want some image replacement ideas, help, whatever, you can check out BIR.

    Nice stuff, mate!
