Housecleaning

I'm messing around with the look of this blog. Tell me if it's obnoxious.

Nice! I'd perhaps take the text off your portrait.

Actually, it might achieve more balance for the look you are trying to get for you to move the portrait to the top of your left column, have your name/blog title on the left side of the header, and the quotation in the main body of the header.

Or not.

Blogger only gives two options on the picture: under the title or in place of the title.

Yellow?

Kind of bright.

Myrhaf said...

How's the gray?

Mike said...

Keep the portrait. You look like the kind of guy who's just obnoxious enough to get along swimmingly with me. (My portrait should bear that out on your side as well.)

Myrhaf said...

The only thing I worry about with that pic is that I look like I'm having too much fun. This might incline readers not to take my serious posts seriously.

madmax said...

Much better. Some blog color schemes are too bright and are hard on the eyes.

Myrhaf said...

Thanks for your opinions, all.

I like it. You know a lot more about computers than I do. But I'm learning, however slowly.

Looks good. Nice face. Thanks for the link.

Myrhaf said...

Patrick, thanks. Mike N., I doubt that I know more about computers than you. I lost my site meter link and my blog map when I hit customize. After that it's just a matter of experimenting with fonts and colors when you click layout on the dashboard.

This is much better -- well, except for the fact that you just HAD to include your "after" (a year of blogging) shot.

Myrhaf, thanks for the link!

I like your new format, except for picture of the naked fat guy. Good thing I skipped breakfast this morning. :P

How long can I keep that picture up before I start losing readers?

Sid said...

Sorry, Myrhaf, but the title is virtually unreadable right now -- too little contrast between the maroon and blue.

If you want to customize colours, http://www.colourlovers.com/ is an excellent resource. You can get lost in it for hours, if you have the time.

Myrhaf said...

How does the gray title work?

Grant Jones said...

Awesome!!!!!

Myrhaf,
The better question is: Why would you want to? ;)

Myrhaf said...

To be honest, I like that picture less every time I see it. Once you laugh at a joke, it is old. I'll take it down soon
