Blog Under Construction

You may notice a lot of changes taking place here at the Farrago.

1. I would like to thank Mailyn for the wonderful green/gingham/penny jar design. I loved it but had to go in a different direction.

Thanks Mailyn!

2. Please bear with me as I adjust colors, links, etc... I know just enough about html to be dangerous!

3. And last but certainly nowhere near least, thanks to the almighty Jane who's CSS wisdom makes me bow at her feet!

4. Viewer poll!
a)How is the font? Too small?
b)What color is the center column? White or black?
c)Anything that annoys or needs to be changed?

I really love your header, it's great.

One thing, though--the links in your posts don't show up another color, so you don't know they're there unless you hover over them.
Wouldn't want people to miss out on anything. :)

Thanks Marg.

Yeah, I noticed that Jennie. It's on my list of things to fix. I can't change my post link color without changing my sidebar link color though. Hmmm...

Thanks Ames!

I soooo loved the jar of money but I like this one too. I like the ragged door with the lime green chair.

Please, please, please, do not use a black background (dominant colour) because I love reading your blog and the ones with rampant black give me a headache in less than two sentences. I thought it was my eyes but had them checked and everything is A-okay. I think black backgrounds (I'm thinking that Snarking on the Snark blog had this) can be hard on the eyes of those of us no longer in our twenties ;) Right now the three columns are in a great blue and white which is fresh in my opinion. Could you move the font up just one smidge of a size? Seriously, the doc said everything was fine - maybe he lied.

CindyS - I keep threatening to do this but then I get freaked out.

Great Nicole! THanks!

LOL Amanda! The border around the blue center column is black in IE and white in Firefox. Not sure why that is happening! Thanks!

Mailyn made the first template Izzy. I made the graphic to this one, the second, and Jane (from DearAuthor) did the three column coding for me.

Thanks Kristie.

I know Cindy. I hated that the jar had to go. Wasn't that the coolest pic? I found it on Flickr. And no black backgrounds! Promise! Cross my heart and swear to stop drinking coffee if I lie! Font size...checking into that one too!

Love the input! Whoopie!

I LOVE the blue color. LOVE it. For me, I use IE though, the centre column is blue with a black border around it.

everything else looks fine!

WOW! See what happens when you sleep? *sigh*

I really liked the green, personally, but this one is good, too. I like the white on blue and the black border. I agree that the font maybe needs to be just one higher, though. It's a bit small.

I love the header, too! Verra nice.

Thanks Val!

LOL Holly. I gave you a little bit of green in this one! At the top!

Font is fixed, yes?

Yep, it's much better! Verra nice. ;)

I noticed the green at the top and was thankful for it. LMAO!
