    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:
    http://homepage.mac.com/robin_martin/blog/blog_v01.html

    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 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?

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

    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.

    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.

    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!
