Re-Design for I Knit Around

Filed under: Retired - Jenny Kubeck on the Web — folkcat at 1:38 pm on Saturday, November 12, 2005

I’ve been with Blogger for about 3/4 of a year now, and I’ve long since gotten tired of seeing the same old templates for our blogs. Modifying the template is possible, of course, but it’s risky to make those changes without damaging things like items you’ve added to the sidebar, etc.

I was inspired this week to create yet another blog – but this one isn’t a public one. It’s called Folkcat’s Test Blog, and it’s nothing more than a laboratory for me to mess with a Blogger template as much as I want to get things right before I implement the re-design on an actual live blog.

Today’s task was to re-create the look for I Knit Around, my knitting and life adventures blog. I’m pleased with the result. It may not be as elegant as a more experienced and professional web designer could have created, but it’s colorful, it’s readable, and it’s distinctly mine.

And the bonus – every time I tinker with one of the blogs or my web pages this way, I understand the process a little better for the next time!
