Well, it's time for me to update my website and I've decided to try my hand at creating my own blog as well.

For now I'm just checking out the layout/design. So I come to you here on MR to take a look at what I've got so far and tell me what you think, tell me if it works on your system/browser, tell me your suggestions...just tell me anything. :D

Here's the URL:

The color scheme is likely to change somewhat, but I'm mostly interested that people find the text legible and the rollovers/tabs look and function correctly.

Thanks! :D

I'm using IE 5.1. Color was grey & yellow. When selecting any link I got, foo.

Would like to see a greater use of a color scheme. Keep us informed as you update, thanks! ;)

I think t looks prety cool. The whole asthetic to blogs, for me at least, is simplicity. check ot zulkey.com (www.zulkey.com) to see what I mean.

I assume that the section links aren't ready yet, hence the foo mesage. Are you going to keep the main blog in section four?

wdlove:
Yeah, I haven't settled on a final color scheme yet. I was just going for high contrast right now.

drastik:
Yeah, I'm definitely going for a simple layout. Sections will move around. I just chose section 4 randomly as something other than the first/last tab. It'll probably end up in the second tab. The "foo" links are just placeholders.

What is your time frame?

No time frame to speak of...I'm just fiddling. :)

Spring semester starts up next week, which will seriously eat up my free time, anyway. The more I can get done over the next few weeks the better.

A small update for you all...

Changed the color scheme slightly and did a little more with the banner image.

What do you think?

Since I found a theme I liked, I decided to purchase the domain name for it and set it up:

http://www.organicallydigital.com/

Just a placeholder until I can get content up...

I like the flower, a nice touch. Would like to see a darker blue to use a contrast!
