The Blog's New Clothes

If you are a regular, you'll note some significant changes to the colour scheme and layout of this blog. Its been an interesting process to get the colours right, since I didn't have a reference palette - so the colours were hit or miss. I think I got them sorted out though.

I would love some feedback on the new layout

- Are the colours hideous?
- Am I missing links to anyone's blog?
- Does it look weird?
- Is the print hard to read?
- Does it fit on your screen?
- Do I have any attrocious spelling errors in the template?

I am celebrating my 5oooth hit today! Although, I'm definately guilty of causing the counter to shoot past that milestone while trying to preview changes to the blog. I still have a few little things to work on. I'd like to add a picture of a pitcher plan in the header and maybe something permenent on the side or a personalized footer. However, I think it'll do for now.

Cheers and thanks,

Just some fast feedback. I know the right hand nav thing has been done, but there is at least some good reason. As we read left to right browsers default to pin the page in the upper left corner. If the resolution of the screen, or the size of the browser window is to small people will by default see clipped content and need to scroll, you will get less incidental readers stopping to read (the rest of us will just scroll over) So as cliche as it is, there is a good reason for it.

Otherwise I like the colours, except the titles w/hyperlinks, they seem minty.
