Template Changes......Again

I got on the computer to get a head start on some blogging and started playing around with the template again. Although the other look was kind of soothing, it also seemed washed out and boring. It would be nice to come up with something I really like and stick with it, but it's also fun to play around.

Please let me know if you see any problems with this new template. When I view it on one computer with IE at 1024 x 768 resolution, the sidebar does not line up. On that same computer in Firefox, it looks fine. On my better monitor it looks fine with IE at all resolutions, including the 1024 x 768. I don't get it. This is by far the most popular resolution for those who view my blog, so I want to make sure it looks okay for most of you out there. Feel free to leave a comment on this post if you see any flaws.

Stay tuned for much more to come this weekend. Tonight I'll have a post about a new blondie recipe I tried. I'll also be cooking up my entry for this week's VRC: Mardi Gras, but I won't post that until the roundup tomorrow. There are only 2 of us so far, but it's not too late - you have until later on tomorrow night to send in your link.

Until later tonight......


  1. I just checked on my machine on IE and Mozilla and they both look almost identical.

    One note- your byline is floating on your picture so that there is a 60px space between your post body and the colored box the byline sits in... was that intentional?

    A silly idea- how does your blog title (over the garlic picture) look in a color other than black? How about your green or purple?

    I too am getting the blog spring cleaning urge! :)

  2. Hi there. :) What do you mean by "byline"?

    As for the blog title - I did try other colors the first time I changed my banner, but nothing showed up all that well other than black. I even lightened the picture a bit to see if that helps, but black still works best.

    Thanks for the feedback!

  3. Looks good to me in Firefox.

    I have a submission for VRC, but I made it in January, can I still submit it?

  4. Patti - you bet you can submit it - I'm purposely keeping VRC easy - you don't have to cook it the week of the roundup. :)
