I've been bored with my blog template for months now, but I can't seem to find anything close to what I'd like to change it to. Blogger offers endless combinations within their new templates but I'm disappointed to find that none of the new templates take full advantage of the width of the display. There just seems to be too much wasted space on the edges of the presentation - but then I don't claim to have an artistic bone in my body, so maybe it's just me that sees it that way.
Anyway, I'm going to try something similar to what you see at the moment, with a little more fooling around with the details and lineup along the sidebar yet to come. I do like that the posts seem easier to read with this layout, and that's the main thing because staring at a computer screen all day long is already hard enough on the eyes. Regardless of where I end up with all this tinkering, the old look seems gone forever because I managed to overwrite it early on and it now seems to be an irretrievable thing of the past.
Please tell me what you think of the new look. I know it's a drastic change, so let me know whether or not it works for you, and if it is any easier to read on your particular display.
