Like my new look? I do! I picked the original blogger template because it was classic and understated - which pretty much describes my style of dress.
However, after surfing many blogs I came to the conclusion that it was a bit drab and not especially eye catching. Eye catching is a necessity with the blog surfing sites. Good writing will keep folks coming back, but you need to stand out from the herd to hook them in for that first read. Julie of Bookworm had the same template and after she got bored with it she completely redesigned her blog. And then she redid mine. And did a fabulous job. I see a new career path in her future!
