So what do you think?
Ever since I started this blog, I have struggled with how it should look. I always wanted three columns, and that took me a while, and many mistakes. I ended up going with a template instead of editing the HTML, and then I couldn't have a header image. I had an online friend help me, Jill from Sneaky Momma Blog Design, and we still couldn't get it to work. So I gave up...for a while.
I played with my test blog, and created the tabs under the header. Then I monkeyed with the HTML and came up with what you see here. I thought it would be columns on either side of the main post page, but it's not, and I'm not sure why.
But I think I like it. It's different, and I like being a bit different.
My other issue was this blog represents me. Who and what I am...like a brand. So what is my brand, or what do people associate with me besides books? Amy is My Friend Amy, Burton Reviews has that beautiful house and color scheme, and Linda of Book Girl of Mur-y-Castell has those fabulous paintings (my current header is one from the same artist as well. His name is escaping me).
So you see, I guess I am having trouble identifying myself, and I require your assistance. What do you think? Do you like what I have done with the place? Please be honest. I appreciate your thoughts, as always :)
