I've customized the layout of this place a little. I inverted the color scheme, changed the font and my picture, and removed that annoying blogger header thingy at the top. I find the black background-white text to be a lot easier on the eyes, but I'll switch it back if people hate it. I was also thinking about changing the header picture (though I do like the current one a lot, it doesn't seem to fit very well now). Any thoughts? (And yes, I know the beard is ridiculous.)
UPDATE: Well, after letting it stew for awhile, I decided to switch back to dark text, light background. The main issue was that bolded text was almost impossible to see regardless of the font I picked. So now I'm going for a kind of old-school parchment look. Again, feedback would be highly appreciated.
UPDATE II: And now I've redone the header as well. The picture is of the Little Colorado far up in the drainage, and I like it a lot and think it fits. The font is a little goofy I reckon, and I'll work on it again tomorrow. I also made it narrower, to fit more actual text in the main screen. Overall thoughts? Am I headed in the right direction? Thanks again for the comments.
