Like What You See? Submit It For Explanation!


There has been a bit of talk going around about blog designs. Now I won't claim to be a master designer, but I definitely have a passion for design. While Swordroll's Blog (http://www.swordroll.com/) is quite lacking in unique designs (soon to be changed), my newest blog, Pirate101, is quite interesting... take a look! http://swordroll-pirate101.blogspot.com/


Personally, I desperately hope you aren't viewing Swordroll's Blog in anything other than Chrome, as it looks quite horrendous outside this browser. Back to the Pirate101 blog! Now think to yourself... have I ever seen that design before? Nope. It isn't a copy of pirate101.com. It isn't a slightly customized template from blogger, even though it started as one. Think to Friendly's site, too. You don't see that design every day, either. Designs make a blog memorable and despite the fact that you might think "oh, you can't judge a site by its design," people will do just that. Having a memorable design does wonders for you.

Notice on my Pirate101 Blog and Friendly's Blog (http://thefriendlynecromancer.blogspot.com/) that there are high-customized links. Wondering how it's done?

And how about the extensions beyond the edges of the blogger template? How's that done? And what about http://mythspent.blogspot.com? How'd the get the three areas of content, and the attribution at the bottom of the of the sidebars?

I'd like to give all wizards and/or pirates a chance to email in a design element that they'd like to know how to do, and I'll explain it to the best of my ability. You can email you questions to swordroll@gmail.com!

If you're wondering about more than one thing, feel free to send in multiples! In the mean time, thanks for reading, and see you in the Spiral!
