Blog Design Overhaul

>> Saturday, October 11, 2008

If you've looked here before, you'll notice that the blog now looks a bit different. I decided it was finally time to move beyond the basic blogger template. I picked up this new template from Our Blogger Templates -- it's called Wild Birds. I actually really like the original with all its orange, but I wanted to use a picture from Africa, from the area around Lake Naivasha where I saw real hippos, and orange doesn't quite work with the pictures I have. If you have really good eyes, you might be able to pick out a hippo or two from the header picture. My pictures with visible hippos were less well-suited for a header,

so I went with the birds and presumed hippos instead. Knowing me, I'll probably tweak the design here and there over the next few weeks, but I think I'm satisfied for the moment. What do you think? Any suggestions? Anything you want to see -- design-wise or post-related?

I really like the new header picture, but I don't see any hippos in there. Are you sure there are in there? Maybe underwater? Stealth hippos?

You have to have the special stealth hippo glasses to see them in the header; they're just that tricky.
