the new look of the Diatribe ...

Finally had some free time on my hands to mess around with my blog look.

Whatcha think?

I found a nice, simple template on the wonderful World Wide Web, played around with it for a little bit, made a new banner graphic, twiddled with the settings, bounced some ideas off my favorite Minx and got her approval LOL. I also got the notice that she would be updating HER wonderful blog because:
1. She's tired of it.

2. Mine will look better than hers and she ain't having that!
Hmm ... can we say "competitive?" Heh.

Anyway, I hope you guys like the new look ... even though the comments thing (not popping up in a new window) is a little irritating. Then again, it's not like I get a ton of comments now, so the people who really want to comment still will ... I hope! LOL

Keep an eye out for a revamp of DZER's Guam Pics. I've seen some very cool photoblogs out there and may end up completely redoing my pics site because of that. Plus, I have a couple more days off — yay, mini-vacation! — so if I get bored ... you never know what more I will do! LOL

Dzer, love the new sleek and slinky look. It would help if you could see peoples avatar's though. It's kind of difficult to make out who commented what.

The masthead is great, is that Minx in the corner?

hmmmm... I think I like it. Love the banner and the side bar. The only negative is the print is rather small... and I have mature eyes. *G* I give it a 9.86.

DZER said...

suze: I know about the comments thing ... I'm trying to find a way around it ... but I suck at html LOL

and you're only supposed to focus on me! LOL

snow white: Thanks darlin' ... I'm really liking the sidebar myself ... LOL

and I noticed the font is a little small too ... but it's part of a cascading style sheet, so not sure if I can bump it up a bit ... as soon as Chrissie wakes up, I'll tap her for her HTML knowledge and see if I can bump it up a bit :)

kathi said...

I love it! You and Chrissie are so talented, I don't know how to do any of this stuff, I'll have the same ole template forever. Looks great babe.

DZER said...

madame x: thanks, darlin' ... glad you like :)

kathi: thanks hon ... just wait till Chrissie gets serious about redoing hers ... it will make mine look simple and childish ... but I'll enjoy it while it lasts LOL

terry said...

SignGurl said...

Woo hoo!!!!

I am jealous! Mine is really drivng me nuts and I'm not wise to the ways of HTML.

Chrissie said...

Chrissie said...

what happened to changing the text... thats the same.. no?

Mike said...

Looks good dude...the only change I'd consider is changing the white text on the black background...may save me from getting glasses...lol

DZER said...

terry: thanks, darlin'!!

signgurl: glad you like it darlin' ... sorry to hear yours is giving you fits LOL

chrissie: heh! and I know you like it ... it wouldn't be like his without your express approval ... LOL ... as for the text, I think it's set up to read a cascading style sheet from somewhere ... ugh.

mike: thanks man ... and I'm workign to tweak the text a bit ... LOL

Looks nice, sexy man.

DZER said...

AAG: why thank you, sexy lady *smooch*

Snow White said...

DZ- In scrolling through the sidebar, I noticed your "last movies watched." Sabrina? Why does this surprise me? LOL Have a great day! xoxox

DZER said...

snow white: if it surprised you, you have a lot of background reading to do, darlin' ... I'm a HUGE fan of romantic comedies, or comedic romances, whichever ... but you'll have to go back in my archives to find out some of the reasons why ... heh
